I don't remember where I heard about renting a boat in Amsterdam, but I was captivated by the idea immediately. Though we spent our two hours on the water in February, the warm sunshine allowed us to enjoy it without problems. I guess it's a lot more fun during warmer days, when you don't need an extra blanket to stay... More

Perfect way to explore Amsterdam. You can choose your own route and visit your favorite canals and not be attached to the time like in canal cruise boats. For us was very good time to rent the boat in December as there is no queue.

Amazing value, booked last minute, 1st time being in control of a boat ourselves! The staff were also very helpful & friendly. Thought we might be charged an extra hour as we were 10 mins late (after being lost) but the staff were understanding. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We had a very pleasant experience with Canal Motorboats. They were easy to find, and the two guys who attended us that day were very helpful and in a good mood. They explained everything the way we needed to understand it and it made it easy for us to cruise on the canals. Only downside was that the boat was... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
