As everyone has said, great breakfast. We typically used the breakfast leftovers as a packed lunch to take with us. Used the bikes René had at a very reasonable rental rate of 5 euro/day/bike. Note they have pedal brakes, so take a run down the street to get used to them. Really warm in the boat. Has underfloor heating and works great. Comfortable bed and great shower with good water pressure. Good selection of books and DVDs if you want a quiet night in (which we always did after being out on bikes and walking all day). René is a great host and isn't intrusive but also gives you all the info you need. We will return to this spot and will recommend to others.

We were going to Amsterdam for a few days and I searched for accommodation. One of the searches threw up the Bed Breakfast Boat, sounded like fun so I contacted the owner (Rene) and it turned out the boat was free when we wanted it. Rene is the perfect host - fridge etc. was well stocked with all the essentials with fresh fruit, croissants, bread etc. being delivered for breakfast each day. We had to ask him to stop on our last day as we couldn't keep up! The living & bed space is very spacious and everything was immaculately clean and tidy. On our arrival Rene took the time to point out all the features and give us tips on where to eat & shop. The boat has books, TV, DVD, Netflix etc. so no shortage of things to do if you are having a quiet night in! The boat is a short (15 mins) tram ride from Centraal station but you could probably walk it in 25 minutes - it's on the same road as the station to the east. Boat was priced reasonably against staying in a city centre hotel! Bottom line is this is a fantastic way to stay in Amsterdam and we will definitely be staying with Rene on our next trip.

It was always our dream to spend some days in a boathouse in Amsterdam and finally our dream come true.It is a lovely place with all the comforts you need and when you look out of the windows you can see the swan just outside searching for food and if you want you can feed him just from the window.Very clean in a quite area not far from centre and easy accessibly by tram.Within walking distance to many restaurants, grocery stores, bars, and beautiful Oosterpark Amsterdam.Every morning Rene use to leave us the breakfast in a lovely chest just outside the door with meat and cheese, bread, fruit and beverages throughout our stay.We had a coffee machine to prepare coffee when ever we liked. Rene was very helpful with suggestions of what to see, etc. And since we had to leave on an early morning he offered to give us a lift to the train station.He is very gentle and a good man. WE will surely stay again if we go back to Amsterdam

I had wonderful 4 days with my best friend. Housboat is a best idea to be here in Amsterdam. And this housboat is excellent! We loved the sweet breakfasts , the lovely location! We had in our room a lot of book and information about Amsterdam. I'm really happy about this choice! Thank you Rene 😊 See you next time!
