We had never visited Amsterdam before and wanted to stay somewhere in the centre but did not want to stay anywhere too noisy,. Efren's houseboat was the perfect choice. It's an ideal location - 10-15 minutes to most central things and it was idyllically quiet. Waking up to the sound of the dicks and swans was blissful! It is a lovely little boat with two rooms and a shared bathroom, The bigger room has a full kitchen with everything you need and access to the balcony. The smaller room has tea/toast making facilities but not much more. I would always go for the bigger room unless you are taking the whole boat. There is a supermarket on the other side of the canal,five minutes walk away. It couldn't be more perfect. Efren was there when we arrived and was extremely helpful but left us to our own devices. It was so nice to have a home from home to come back to at the end of a busy day! We will definitely stay there the next time we are in Amsterdam.
