I spent two nights here dock side (Osterdock) in Amsterdam in November. Good location - walking distance to all neighborhoods. Nice bike rental shop nearby. Short walk to central train station. I had the cozy "bridal" cabin at the bow of the ship. I love boats - so was perfect for me. The room had four portholes to add some... More

We spent a week on the Zwaan on a Super Tulip Bike and Barge Trip. There were 10 of us and the feeling about the Zwaan was unanimous! It exceeded our expectations in every way. Every aspect of the trip was fabulous! The staff was amazing, going above and beyond to make very person feel comfortable. They attended to every... More

You have to be aware that you book a room on a boat - means they are small, not fully sound proof etc - but if you can accept and enjoy that, there is no better way to stay overnight. We booked 2 nights during our stay in Amsterdam where the boat was docked, 10 minute walk from the city... More

We stayed for one night after completing a week long bicycle/barge tour from Bruges to Amsterdam. While the barge for our trip was pretty good, the Zwaan was its mirror opposite. All night people were walking back and forth, slamming doors, arguing, and even worse, there was a damn dog that barked at everything. The layout of the room was... More

I really loved staying here. I owner is very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts provided were delicious!! The boat setting is really cool and something a bit different and it was lovely sitting out on the deck in the sun! The only thing is the rooms were quite small and town is a 10-15 min walk away. But overall... More
