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
Heating / Cooling
Long Term Rent Available
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.

Great Stay Amazing LocationMy Son and I had a great stay at the liberty houseboat, great location 5 mins from Central Station. The boat was a great place to relax in the evening, it had everything you need and very cool. Will be booking another stay at Liberty Houseboat. Thanks to Otis who was a great host and very helpful.

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.

Very good located
We liked our stay very much! The boat is nearby to many attractions. But you are better fit and not tall when you want to stay here. For example the ceiling of the bedroom is only about 1,30 m. The other rooms are of a normal high. There is almost no noise of the traffic although the dock is very close to central station. But you must like the sound of water splashing.

I spent 4 days on this amazing boat with my cousin and we couldn’t make any better. We would love to be there even more. Thank you Otis for taking care and lovely stay.

Absolutely loved the house boat, it was in a great location not far from the action yet far enough for some peace and quiet. Loved sitting on the deck watching the world go by. The boat itself was charming and rustic, loved the shower.
The host was fantastic, very chilled even let us have a late check out.
Going to miss Amsterdam..
