Staying in a boat house was truly one of the great experiences we had in Amsterdam. The room was very spacious for the price we paid and nicely segregated into the bedroom and the living room area. Waking up to the tranquility of the canals in the morning with the occasional swans and ducks swimming by is definitely something that cannot be experienced in a typical hotel right in the city.
There are so many modes of transportation in Amsterdam and travelling to the city is very convenient. You can choose to cycle to the city, like how the Dutch do. Otherwise, there is bus 22 just 5 mins walk away or tram 10 / 14 which is just 10 mins walk away. The owner Rene has city maps ready, and there are a lot of guidebooks in the room. There are restaurants and supermarket nearby as well.
Unlike a typical hotel stay, Rene made our 5 days 4 night stay a very personal one. He was always very approachable and willing to share about Netherlands. The breakfast he prepared for us was sumptuous and we often had more to pack for lunch.
However, just one tiny shortcoming about the room is the bathroom, which has no place for hanging clothes. Otherwise, it was a fantastic stay!
