We stayed in the Prinsen Boat in early January. It was our first house boat experience and we were very excited about it. We left 3 nights later extremely satisfied. The house is at a busy intersection with a tram stop and car traffic - but none of this noise was audible inside the house. (the quacks from the local ducks is another story). The large king-sized bed was very comfortable and our two kids slept comfortably in the pull out sofa bed in the living room. The bathroom and shower were nice and well cleaned and the heat (one of our initial concerns about renting a house on a canal in January) worked great! We didn't use the kitchen much, but anyone planning to eat in during their stay will find everything they need (including some staples that are kept in the house for guests). The house was within walking distance to many activities, and there was a nice, large grocery store about 5 minutes walk away.
Only one complaint - the beautiful wooden paneling around the bedroom door frame hurts when you hit it with your head!
