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.

    Super location

    Great place to stay in the middle of Amsterdam. Best location next to the Waterlooplein and only 10 minutes walk from the city center. The houseboat is very clean and newly renovated. You have a very nice view from the huge window and watch sightseeing boats go by. Marie is a great host and very uncomplicated. I can recommend it without reservation.

    Nice and cosy

    It’s a one room apartment with a huge window, where you can sit and relax. Every evening we watched all the boats coming by like a TV program. The room was clean and all necessary stuff is in it, for example a coffee machine.

    Wonderful respite

    The stay was delightful! Check-in and check-out were both on time. Our hostess provided needed info about the quarters, nearby grocery, and even phoned to arrange our taxi at departure. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

    Pretty perfect

    Everything about this houseboat was excellent. The location is ultra-central, yet also quiet and peaceful (score 6 out of 5..!). The houseboat apartment is completely new inside and everything works perfectly - heating, water, blinds, windows, doors. Marco (Maria was away) was a very kind and welcoming host. The only thing I can think of as a possible improvement is very minor - this would be more ambient - type lighting in the interior for the evenings. Overall, though, a pretty perfect stay. I would definitely go back.
