How to get there

From central station you can walk to the B&B (about 10/15 minutes) or just take the metro (only 1 stop) and walk another few minutes (this takes you about 6 minutes in total). Super easy!

About the area

It is located around the corner of the Waterloo Square, 300 meters from the red light district and the wonderful Binnen-IJ area, Nemo science museum and lots of wonderful old and new architecture. 

Since it's one of the oldest areas of Amsterdam, you can really sense the historical value of this location. Lots of points of interest are within walking distance, yet it is a quiet and relaxed area without tourist masses.

    Wonderful days on a great houseboat in Amsterdam Show original

    We spent 3 wonderful days on this fully equipped houseboat. The accommodation has about 25 square meters, a nice bathroom and a beautiful view of the canal. It's a pleasure to open the floor-to-ceiling windows and enjoy life around you. It was absolutely the right decision to spend our stay here. The owner Maria was also very accommodating and helpful. The supermarket is just around the corner, as are all sights within walking distance. You were right in the middle and still had your peace. A dream and gladly again.

    Very nice sunny houseboat with everything you need for a stay. Tasteful furnishings, ideal for 2 people. Great atmosphere right on the water in the middle of Amsterdam, walking distance to everything. Very friendly owner. Recommended for everyone who wants to really relax. PERFECT!

    Nice little apartment on a houseboat Show original

    We had a wonderful weekend at Maria's houseboat. The room was clean and sufficiently comfortable. You couldn't cook, but who would want to during such a short stay in a city with what felt like 10,000 restaurants and bars.

    The bathroom is quite comfortable for such a small houseboat apartment. The bed was comfortable for us, only a second duvet could have been provided, although the one that was there was very large and all in all adequate. With the key came a customer card from Albert Hein, which gave us discounts when we went shopping; that was really a nice touch.

    Maria welcomed us warmly, showed us everything and then we didn't see her again until we left. We liked the most the passing tourist ships, to which we could wave at the open window while getting out of bed in the morning and toast to them with a beer while sitting in front of the window in the evening. We were able to catch many an envious but always happy look...

    The boat is otherwise in a very quiet location, although it is only a few meters from the Nieuwmarkt and it is also not far from the Rembandtplain. Almost everything is within walking distance. We will definitely come back here again!

    Perfect hideaway in the middle of Amsterdam

    Everything was like promised. Short walk to most places. Was very nice to just sit by the kitchen table and watch the boats go by. Would definitely come back. Thanks M!
