Friendly welcome on arrival at the Amsterdam House Hotel where we had to pick up the keys for the houseboat. It would have been helpful if the proprietor had briefed the taxi driver on how to find the houseboat as we spent ages trying to find it as the taxi costs were going through the roof! On arrival at the houseboat my heart sank. It was very shabby on the outside with overgrown weeds and peeling paint. Inside was also a disappointment. The houseboat stank of stale cigarette smoke and as none of us were smokers it was very unpleasant. Things that didn't work - no light in the bathroom - which was interesting on the first night! no ceiling lights worked at all apart from one in a small hall. Lack of curtains and very stained and dirty curtain in one bedroom which was not nice - see picture. The location was awful - right next to a very noisy road intersection and bridge - see picture. Something that, of course, is not mentioned on the website. The noise was extremely loud and went on way past midnight. I could hear it even with ear plugs in!
