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.

    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!

    Best place to stay !!!

    We, a couple from Berlin (55 and 56) have already made many city trips, but we have not yet had accommodation, such as with Mariela and her husband. A perfect houseboat apartment, small, super cozy, but with a wonderful view. The houseboat is super centrally located on the Oudeschans in front of a 5 star luxury hotel and you can see great canal houses from your bed. At the same time, the canal is wide enough so that the passing boats have a comfortable distance.

    In the evening, with the large casement windows open, it is just wonderful to sit there and look. Happy with a glass of wine. We explored Amsterdam on foot, which works very well because the houseboat is centrally located. You can go shopping just around the corner in case the cold wine runs out. The interior is completely new, we were the second guests! Many thanks for the beautiful days Bettina and Thomas. We can only recommend the boat! PS: Especially under the adverse corona conditions in Amsterdam (as everywhere) it is great to be able to live so separated and yet in the middle of it.

    A perfect boat experience in Amsterdam !

    What a luck to be the very first guests aboard 'Mar B&B'! The location is ideal, and the big picture windows and view of passing boats and classic Amsterdam row houses -- during day and night -- really give you the feeling of living on a canal. We even sat on the small outdoor deck and dipped our feet in the canal. Finally, our hosts were also incredibly responsive to every request. I think Mar B&B will soon become THE place to stay in Amsterdam!
