It was the second time that we rent with Eric and Nina. The houseboat was awesome for us, everything was perfect. The owners of the boat are very nice, and helpful.They know everything about Amsterdam, and it s a pleasure for them to share with us. So after some tips from them, you can rent a bike just next door...

Just like the city, this is a quirky, atmospheric, friendly, odd, wonderful place. Incredibly close to Centraal, and therefore close to everything (because you can always grab a tram or hire a bike there even if you don't want to walk). Some hints and tips: - If you aren't used to sleeping on a boat, it really is worth bringing...

As a surprise for my birthday, my wife booked a weekend in Amsterdam staying on The Rose houseboat. We visited from 15th to 18th March. I had never stayed on a houseboat before and wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I wasn't disappointed. First of all it didn't feel like we were on a boat and having looked at...

Amazing boat in great location. Many thanks to Nina, Olga and Kasia who were all very helpful. The boat has all the facilities you need to cook, listen to music, watch DVD's, relax while looking at the beautiful view of the canal. There is a lovely small Chinese restaurant close by also which is great.

If you are looking for a true Amsterdam Experience than stop looking: Love Houseboats is the place that will cater all your needs. It was so cool to be floating on water in the heart of the city at walking distance from all the hotspots, and yet still have the feeling to be out in nature, only some ducks came...

I stayed on the boat for three nights and had a fantastic time. I would definitely go back to Amsterdam and I would hesitate to stay anywhere else. The boat is situated very close to Centraal Station, tourist information and tram stops which makes getting to and from the airport/ and navigating the city. The location is quaint and authentic...

Excellent Stay – Highly Recommended!! We were a group of four stayed in the new love house boat and enjoyed every bit of it. On arrival Nina [Owner] took time out to explain how the boat works, what to expect, do’s and don’ts. This was very helpful and also marked us out on a map and recommended a few places...

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.

“Rose if perfect for a couple. It is recently renovated (e.g. it has floor heating, a fancy shower, etc). But its terrace is not as good as the Sunset's Sunset can host two couples. It has a large living room and two bedrooms. Terrace area has a perfect view. But the decoration is a bit older (but still very good) than the ones of Rose”
