We just had a fabulous stay at 'de Dageraad' boat. Sylvia and Theo are exceptional hosts, the boat is Dutch clean, the boat experience is unique and very comfortable. We rented their bikes and had enjoyable, easy bike rides into the center of Amsterdam. The Eastern Docklands are a very interesting area to walk, to see a different area of Amsterdam with more modern architecture. A great contrast to the busy center.
The breakfasts were awesome. This was one of the most exceptional places we have stayed on our many travels, with hands down the best value of any!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Stay on the water in the Venice of the North: Amsterdam. This completely renovated B&B offers two luxury rooms with private bathrooms on this converted barge. The B&B has a private entrance on the boat, there is a breakfast kitchen for the guests, and you can enjoy the grand view of the eastern docklands on the deck terrace on a nice summer's day. Getting to and from the major highlights of Amsterdam (the canals, the museums) takes some easy 15 minutes by tram. Rental bikes are available at the ship. It is the perfect place to explore the city during the day and retreat to this peaceful B&B on the water for the night. If you arrive at the Central Station we can pick you up with our station wagon. ... more less
