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!

    Wonderful find and location

    This was in an absolutely great location. A quiet area but close enough to walk to the busier areas. 10/15 min stroll along the canal to Central Station, the main city, the famous Red Light district. There is a fab supermarket 200m away. The world famous Gassan Diamond building is right behind the houseboat offering free guided tours of how they make the diamonds. The houseboat is compact and bijou but has everything you could need for a stay. The view of the canal with the huge opening windows is superb and tranquil with a few water birds and boats going by. Using the app “around me” found 2 sensational restaurants that we pre-booked while we were there, “The seafood bar” & “Hemelse Modder”. The communication with Maria, the owner, was faultless. Would we stay here again………. Absolutely! Wouldn’t even look to stay anywhere else in Amsterdam next time after staying here. *****

    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.

    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!
