The Love Boat is one half of a small sea boat located very near to Amsterdam's Central Station, and part of a small complex of canal boats (and the one sea boat). This is easily the most atmospheric yet fully functioning accommodation I've ever stayed in. A cute kitchen means that small meals like breakfast are easily self-catered, the bed is very comfy, there is a bath, shower and toilet, it's heated and its right in the heart of Centraal. Quiet, lovely, wooden boat with a steepish stair that soon become lots of fun and table and chairs on deck to enjoy the outdoors. Eric the host explained how it all works and gave us a quick rundown on Amsterdam - it was our first trip. I loved loved loved Amsterdam - a city where grown-ups go to play - and I loved the Love Boat.
