We stayed in Vita Nova for a week, using the captain's "house" at the front, with two bedrooms and own facilities. Although the location was lovely and it was great to stay on the water, the accommodation itself had some minor points. There was no room for luggage at all. All the storage space had been taken up by the... More

Stayed on the boat for two nights. Very friendly owners who new the area and the recommendations they made were bang on. Will definitely be back. fantastically unique! The rooms are very quirky but that's half the fun of a place like this - makes a great change from boring hotels!

This boat on a canal is a really nice place to stay, run by a great couple. I stayed there as part of a group and we were made to feel very at home. The rooms are small, with the facilities squeezed into corners, but perfectly OK for an individual. If you are looking for a really good value, different... More

Stayed two nights while attending meetings at the nearby RCE. Friendly and helpful owners give a very personal service which included phoning to check I wasn't lost when late. Typically relaxed Dutch though. The boat makes a unique hotel, full of character but not short of comforts and facilities. The room, although small, was fully en suite. The lounge breakfast... More

I spent two nights at this location. Not easy to find by car cause there is no official road to. But a parking is very close. Hotel is an old historical barge. Very interesting to sleep inside a barge. Rooms not very spacious but on a boat there is limited space. If very tall you have to sleep diagonally in... More

I spent the final night of a two week trip to Europe (from the US) in Amersfoort as it was affordable, not too far from the airport (I had a rental car) and was thrilled when I found Hotel Vita Nova, as having the experience of sleeping on a ship in a canal is not something I come across every...
