The Prinsen Boat was the perfect place to stay for what was an amazing week in Amsterdam. Peter, the owner, is excellent with communicating during the booking process and leading up to our arrival. From the minute we walked in the door we knew we had made the right choice in accommodations. The boat is right at the stop for Tram 4 at the Prinsengracht and well-located within walking distance of everything! There are cafes, shops, grocery store and everything you need right there. The views are incredible as is the atmosphere of the neighborhood. From the flower shop and herring stand on the corner to the busy cafes the whole vibe was lively but not overly touristy and not crowded. Really chill. The boat itself was really unique. Every review mentions the bed...oh that bed! Some of the best nights of sleep we have ever had. It's like a cave in there! The shower has awesome water pressure and plenty of hot water. There is just enough movement on the boat so you know you are on a boat but there is not really all that much movement. The boat traffic on the canal is constant and really fun to interact with everyone partying on their boats in the canal. There is reliable wifi and cable TV with CNN (that's all I care about) and Cartoon Network (all my boyfriend cares about). The boat is rustic. If you are looking for room service and your sheets changed daily this is not your place. But if you are looking for a really unique, comfortable, romantic alternative to a hotel the Prinsen Boat is a great choice. There is no question we will stay there again if Peter will have us!
