We were arriving in Amsterdam on Sept 3, and a lot of the hotels were either fully booked or really expensive (even booking 6 months in advance!). I found the Guest-Houseboat online and decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. We actually stayed in a houseboat owned by the same owners, across the Brouwersgracht. It was comfortable and relatively spacious, with a nice terrace to watch boats, swans and ducks go by. The location was great - a short walk from the Centraal train station. Paul greeted us to let us in and show us the amenities, which included a small kitchen and some free coffee, beer, orange juice and snacks. He also shared a wealth of information about the neighborhood (there is a fantastic sandwich shop nearby, as well as a couple of supermarkets). The only downside - it was a bit warm during our stay, and the houseboat does not have air conditioning (although it does have a ceiling fan). Other than that, we had a lovely stay, and would recommend this unique experience to everyone.
