The Amsterdam Lounge Boat is located in the Amsterdam city center at just a stones throw distance from Central Station. On board of the ''Liberty'' you’ll find a peaceful and quiet accommodation.
The is the traditional dock where ships entered Amsterdam. The lively red light district is just around the corner, just like many other famous attractions. On the deck you have a private and sunny area where you can sit, relax, and enjoy the view of the Oosterdok.
- The interior breathes the rich history of this former freight ship, built in 1930. Many original details are still visible and the many portholes give both a great view over the water and a superb nautical feeling. The boat is renovated with love and many used materials, with the cradle-to-cradle principle in mind. It sure gives the ship loads of character - no hotel that can beat this experience, that's for sure!
The bedroom is located in the front of the ship. Not huge, but cozy for sure. As the bedroom is fitted in the shape of the hull, you can not stand here. Also the rest of the ship is about 1,80 high, so for tall people it might be a thing to consider. Please bare this in mind to avoid disappointment. On the other hand: you can see it as part of the traditional houseboat experience of course.
What may you expect aboard of the Liberty? First of all the entrance whit a small, yet useful kitchen. Besides the kitchen you find the shower and on the other side there is the toilet. Walk on, and you will enter the lounge area, a great place to chill out after a great day in town.
In the kitchen you will find a sink, a small fridge, coffee maker, water boiler and of course free high speed WiFi.
The owner lives on the other side of the boat, guaranteeing you full privacy, you won't probably notice him being around.
Bedding & towels will be provided. Self-catering.
The lounge is +- 180 high. It is spacious and has a light atmosphere.
Number of single beds: 2

How to get there
Amsterdam’s airport, Schiphol is located 18km (11min) southwest of the city. The airport includes a train station – right underneath the main hall. Every 10 minutes there are trains to Amsterdam Central station.
From Amsterdam Central is a 10 minute walk to the Amsterdam Lounge Boat. From the central exit of the station go to left, walk straight and cross the street. The Amsterdam Lounge Boat is on the first doc you will see. It is right across the Hilton and the Chinese floating restaurant.
Walking upon the doc you will find the Lounge Boat at the end on your right hand side.
About the area
The old Amsterdam city center is full with highlights and there is always something exciting going on! Museums, clubs, bars, sightseeing and many more.
This boat has been a big project for many years and still ongoing. With limited resources we made an authentic place that is unique in many ways. The front half of the ship has become a lounge.

A week on the Liberty
Really enjoyed our stay on this couldn't-be-more-centrally-located old-style houseboat right across from the floating Chinese restaurant and less than 5 minutes walk from the excellent Voyagers coffeeshop.
The provided bikes were invaluable though the canoes proved too adventurous for our rainy week.
Shower is strong, entrance to bedroom low (crouch) and although it got cold at night there are heaters under each bed.
Would definitely stay again.

Cool boat, bit chilly
I enjoyed a long weekend on this lovely houseboat in Amsterdam. The highlight was the living room with the glass roof, which lets lots of light in and the space is really cool. The boat is located really close to the centre and really close to the train station, couldn't have been a better location really. It was still really quiet at night and it is cool to be on the water.
One drawback was that it was still pretty cold there despite having the heating on. It is probably perfect in summer!

The Real Deal
If you love old boats, you will love this boat! This is real. Perfect location. Waves in the wind slightly rocking. Cozy cuddy. Don't come expecting the Ritz. Tall people can deal pretty well.

Amsterdam house boat
This was our first visit to Amsterdam. The houseboat was just what we wanted. It was in a great location. Near the train station & easy to walk everywhere. Otis was a great host. Answered all our questions & was always available. We would love to return
