We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Le Maroxidien. The boat is beautifully decorated and well presented throughout. The lovely Kathrin is a charming woman who made us feel welcomed as her guests.
The organic breakfast was a great start to set us up for a day's exploring of the wonderful city of Amsterdam. We always started breakfast with some laughs over our coffee as I tried to convince Kathrin that I was an old sea dog and well versed in the language of the sea.
We told Kathrin that we wanted a holiday that would be unique and with a soul. And that is what we got. Her houseboat has a soul and a gentle character. We will never forget our time here.
Do not expect spacious rooms. You are on a boat. Our room (India - the rooms are all themed on different countries) was perfect for us. The bathrooms are very good - Kathrin has stamped her own special and unique style on the accomodation.
I expect we will return to Amsterdam in the future and we will definitely return to our boat.
Decent location - short walk from Central Station - and well positioned for access to the city.
We were sad to leave.
