We were really happy with our stay and our room.
Our studio was bright and well furnished, with a kitchen and bath to ourselves. It looked out into the street, and the large windows in the morning really let the light in and brightened the place up even more. The room was perfectly clean when we arrived with some great information and maps available about Amsterdam.
The bed was probably the best bed we slept in our entire trip. I think it might have been memory foam.
The bathroom was nicely modern, but a little small. Not to much space if you have a lot of toiletries, but perfectly adequate otherwise.
The kitchenette had everything we needed, though we never actually used it. There was, however, a Nespresso machine that was great for getting us up in the morning.
Also, wifi was included as was the use of the washer and dryer (much needed!) located in the closet right outside of our room .
Monique was a great host. She gave us a warm welcome and was very helpful whenever help was needed. My girlfriend needed a hairdryer and because the one in the room had just broken, Monique was happy to lend us hers (she lives right upstairs). The next day, she had bought a new one and laid it out for us. Also, there was a small problem with the bathroom, but one call and it was fixed.
As for the breakfast part - I am not sure if she does this herself, as she works another job, or if there is some other arrangement with another restaurant nearby. We had planned to eat out in the morning anyways, so we never asked about it.
The location was great. Right in the center, with great restaurants right downstairs.
All in all, it was a really great stay, with nothing at all to complain about and some pleasant surprises. So glad we decided not to stay in a boat house!
