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.

    Cozy Houseboat with Amazing Views!

    My husband and I greatly enjoyed our 2-day stay in Maria’s cozy Amsterdam houseboat. The apartment is thoughtfully laid out to make good use of all available space. Maria was a helpful, accommodating host who met us at the houseboat and gave us some good recommendations on where to shop and eat in the neighborhood. We loved being in the houseboat and greatly enjoyed its views of the canal and passing boats. We highly recommend it!

    Excellent location, relaxing stay

    We really enjoyed our stay at Mar. The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped with a great view across the Oudeschans. The location was ideal, with the whole of the centre of Amsterdam within walking distance and an abundance of shops, cafes and bars on the doorstep. Despite being so close to the centre, the canalside setting was peaceful and quiet. We found it most relaxing just watching the boats pass by outside the window in the morning. All in all we had a very good stay and would definitely book again the next time we visit Amsterdam.

    Perfect Stay

    We thoroughly enjoyed Mar B&B. The location made all the sites we wanted to visit walkable. We hope to come back again someday and will definitely recommend it to friends who visit Amsterdam. Thank you Maria!
