“Like Staying With Friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Recently stayed 5 nights in the Chagall room - it was like staying with friends! The hosts were helpful and ready to make suggestions for where to eat and what to see. It is a very short walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station located on a canal in the very fun Jordaan neighborhood - no shortage of shops, restaurants and cafes. There are no kitchen facilities, but there is a tea kettle in each room and every morning the croissant fairy leaves a treat for you! Just one street over there are all the cafes, restaurants and bars you could ever want, and also two two grocery stores (one upscale organic - one regular). I would definitely stay again!

Four of us stayed here for four nights in late April. It happened to be the weekend of Kings Day which was interesting to say the least. The boat is great. This obviously isn't a traditional lodging so expect low ceilings, a small toilet, no shower room door, etc. What you should expect is a totally unique and authentic space in an absolutely perfect location. Jordaan is the best area of Amsterdam and this boat is nearly in the middle of it. Plenty of food options are easily walkable although I would highly suggest using a bike to get around. The boat has fully functioning electricity and water and it does not move around in the water. The bedrooms are different but cosy and very quiet. The wheel room upstairs makes for a perfect space to have a drink before going out or just hang out and watch the city go by. We spend probably 90% of the time we were not asleep in this room. My wife and I have been coming to Amsterdam at least once a year for about six years and always wanted to stay on a house boat but we're never able to due to days or minimum stay restrictions. We're so glad we were able to grab this one and would absolutely stay here or on one of their other boats again.

We stayed at Frederic's for 3 nights with our 2 year old. the apartment is very conveniently located, has a great view on the canal from the spatious lounge. we found the place very comfortable, the staff was helpful with tips and directions. I happened to forget a personal item in the apartment before leaving, and they shipped it to me in the UK within a couple of days.

We've stayed with Frederic a few times now, each time in different rooms/apartments/houseboats, and each time we've had a great experience. This time we stayed in the Picasso Room and it was a perfect base for the weekend - clean quiet and good beds. The location is perfect - right between Centraal Station and the Jordaan, with anything you need right nearby on Haarlemmerstraat. Marne and everyone else were super nice and welcoming.
Highly recommended.

Friendly fair, efficient. What more do you need? You are in very good hands renting their bike. Overall just great guys. 15 Euros a day is really a fair price and they give you lots of free advice too. Fun to deal with.

We only rented bikes from this establishment, so can't comment on the hotel.
The bike rental was super easy, and the individual who helped us was friendly and offered helpful tips for getting around. Would recommend renting a bike from here.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Mondriaan room at the "stay at ours" guesthouse at the end of November.

We really, really enjoyed our stay there; the location was excellent, the people were friendly and helpful, and we felt totally at home there.

As there were some problems getting there from the airport (due to train issue) we had to ring ahead and let them know we would arrive late. Despite this, Frederic stayed up and waited for us to arrive and then spent a long time letting us know where all the best spots were. This was much appreciated.

The next day, we also hired bikes from them. This was a great way to see the city and all of the roads were easy to navigate.

The room itself was comfortable and clean, although you could hear the people in the room above you. In addition, the waterbed was a definite experience not to be forgotten!!!

We had a lovely time in Amsterdam, and would definitely return to this accommodation if we were to go again.

Room Tip: Go for the mondriaan and enjoy the waterbed!!!
