Emma We had a wonderful short stay in this very conveniently located houseboat. Despite icily cold weather outside we knew we had somewhere warm to come home to. The hosts were friendly and efficient and the fridge so well stocked that we hardly needed any extra provisions during our 3 night stay. The children loved the novelty of sleeping on the water. Overall we would definitely recommend this place to friends and might be back ourselves one day.
Anne Good location for seeing the city without the craziness of the inner canals. In good shape, nice beds, good being on the water, close to key tram lines for station. Hosts even provided some food for breakfasts (eggs, jam, cheese, meats, fruits, juice). We did a bit of cooking there, and it worked well for that, too. We arrived early by mistake (my fault), but hosts were very accommodating as they finished up the readiness. Pros: variety of food markets nearby if you cook, roomy, warm, very hot water, convenient, good local experience, foods for us, house slippers provided, two sets of keys. Cons: no washer to use, sketchy internet, DVD didn't work for us. Definitely would recommend.
Lucy Great place to stay, within 10 minute walking distance to the city centre. The owner, Hans, was a very nice host who gave us plenty of useful information about Amsterdam. Would definitely stay there again when in Amsterdam. Thanks again, Paul & Lucy.
