5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Stayed in the "Basic Room". Very good use of space and extremely clean and modern. Mirjam, the host, was very accessible throughout our stay and helped arrange for bike rentals and taxi to airport and made sure we had everything we needed. It's situated on the Amstel River in the De Pijp neighborhood which is well-worth exploring. There are great restaurants and cafes and the Albert Cuypmarkt, a huge open-air market, is also nearby. Breakfast is substantial and delicious. Highly recommend. Will return.

This houseboat was not quite as central as we thought and the neighbourhood has nothing special but what an incredible little gem! Fantastic view, very charming, extremely clean and well maintained. Breakfast very good too and brought in the morning by a very friendly host. Highly recommended.

I have spend 3 days in Amsterdam in November 2013. This time I have decided to stay in a boat house.
Little Amstel BoatHouse is an amazing place to stay and relax. They are small rooms but very comfortable and cosy. Very warm in Winter nights. Breakfast is delivered to the room every morning and it is very good. Selection of breads, Jams, honey, yogurt, milk and cereal, orange juice and cheese.
Loved the fact of waking up every morning on the canal and have the ducks by my window.

Room Tip: All rooms are very quiet!! Any of them are a good choice.

See the first picture, with the adjoining windows? That's where we 60-somethings spent three nights this second week in November 2013. The hubby goes for luxe at an affordable price, and I, the wife, shop, shop, shop. I convinced him that pulling our rental car over to the side of the road and offloading our baggage was an advantage. Though petite by any the Stand parameters, the Standard Room, which is the one all the way to the left, had enough space for us and our volume of cargo. Everything was ship shape, in fact. And Mirjam, our hostess, was not only a delight to greet each morning with our bag of breakfast goodies, but she offered to pack and ship a gift we had received in Bruges, sparing us the duty -- though we pulled it off ourselves in Valkenburg, our following destination. (See another well-deserved positive review of Hotel Scheepers.) Mr. Luxe would have preferred more "amenities," but I loved the charm of feeding the ducks, coots, and one swan in the a.m. and feeling like I had gotten away with something to stay in such a cozy spot.

Room Tip: Spend the extra 10 euros and go for the standard room over the middle basic room.

We took Trip Advisor's advice and booked two nights in Amsterdam at Mirjam's Little Amstel Boathouse B & B during the second week of our month long European trip. It sounded romantic and unique and it was everything we hoped for. Although we got a little confused in finding the location some kind local help got us there. Mirjam made it easy for us to get into our room and settle in. The standard room that we purchased was small but very comfortable. That is to be expected on a houseboat. We were greeted by the "locals" upon our arrival. By "locals" I mean the variety of ducks just outside our window. They greeted us every morning for their share of breakfast that was amply provided by Mirjam. We really enjoyed the show as we fed them our leftover bread. We slept well in a comfortable bed and awoke to the cacophony of the "locals". There are markets nearby and well as a Metro. All in all it was a great experience and we highly recommend the Little Amstel.

BEAUTIFUL!!! The room is small but SO nice and very clean!!! and it does not matter that it is small because you have the most beautiful view of the canal:):) just amazing! Also, breakfast is fantastic! a huge spread and you eat it in front of the beautiful views. The walk to the center of the city is so lovely and you really are close to everything. The area is very quiet as well. Mirjam is very good with communications (from the time you book and speak with her via email to the time you check out!) and bring the breakfast right to your door. Absolutely fantastic stay!!
