“Magical retreat in Amsterdam off the beaten tourist track.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

This is a bed and breakfast on a houseboat on the North Shore of Amsterdam that was the perfect antidote to the crowds of Amsterdam centre. Take a free ferry across the water from just outside the Central station and the owner (perfect host) gave us a lift to this idyllic setting. After that you just borrow the household bikes and commute into the city by bike and ferry just like a local. I came with a friend and we each had our own bedroom and had a dining space to ourselves, equipped with kettle and dutch coffeemaker, microwave and a fridge, so we never needed to spend on eating out. We picked up ready to eat groceries from the local supermarket on the way back from town, opened a bottle of wine and just gazed out over the canal, listening to the birds and talking about how wonderful it must be to live in Amsterdam. Our host brought in a generous breakfast every morning, and if you want to experience Amsterdam in a more personal way, the Waterinn is the perfect place to stay.
