Beside of mooring right on the site of Amsterdam's monumental Unicorn Luis Bridge & Lock dating back in the 15th century and on the Korte Prinsengracht, in-line with the famous Prinsengracht, the houseboat is located just 1 km from Amsterdam's major hub of transportations, the Central Train station. On top of that, guests are here for a real treat due to the fact of staying right at the heart of the culture, shopping, dining and nightlife of two most colorful and boisterous streets of Amsterdam, Haarlemmer street & Haarlemmer dike, and the vibrant neighborhood of the Jordaan district.

    Perfect spot

    We stayed for 4 nights at the start of January and thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the space. Great spot and despite of it being in the heart of the city it felt quiet and peaceful. The only problem was the windows which we weren't able to open apart from one which we opened but weren't able to close. We may have been doing something wrong, not sure.

    Dreamy days in Amsterdam Show original

    We were lucky to be able to rent Vivian's houseboat. Everything worked wonderfully, from booking to handing over the keys. The location is excellent for exploring Amsterdam on foot. Supermarket and good restaurants around the corner. Cynthia
