This place is so great! We really enjoyed staying here, and we have travelled a lot and stayed in a lot of great places so we have pretty high standards.
Kathrin is lovely and so helpful. Her organic breakfast was A-mazing! Fruit and cold meat and cheese, fresh bread and croissants, and homemade smoothy/juice. The boat's decor is really something as well. Kathrin has collected all kinds of great things from her travels like funky cushions and lamps. Yet the boat isn't cluttered or too personal. Everything is very, very clean and the fittings are all new and modern. The bathroom is especially nice - with a mosaic tiled sink. Each room has a theme (there are only three, which is a good number, not too many other guests). So we stayed in 'Mexico' which was suprisingly roomy consdering it is on a boat.
All the little touches were wonderful - like the lovely morrocan tea and dutch biscuits that Kathrin left out for us. Upstairs on deak there are great places to sit and admire the view - inside and out. Also the location is perfect - a few minutes walk from the station (the train goes to the airport) and very near all the bustlings and happenings of the redlight district and china town, without actually being in that area. The other great thing is that the prices are very reasonable - not much more than a hostel to be honest, especially for a private room. Also there are two bikes you can hire for 10 euro a day, so you can explore the town like a local. Could this place be any more perfect?
