A much better idea for families than a cramped hotel room. The houseboat has the added attraction of being able to feed the canal birds from the window and wave at passing tourists. Peter welcomed us to the boat and was helpful with suggestions of what was available nearby. We enjoyed a day at Artis zoo and a day at Nemo which are both fantastic places for family days out. We were also glad that we went to the Van Gogh Museum on a Friday when it is open late as it meant we had more time. We booked tickets for the Anne Frank Museum online so avoided the queue. The double bed on the boat is the biggest I've ever seen. It would easily sleep two adults and one child - maybe even two small ones! But there is always the sofa bed too which I gather was very comfortable and there was plenty of bedding. Thanks Peter!
