a small and fine houseboat in a prime location
The houseboat is well equipped for a few days. Everything was clean and nicely decorated.
Who is over 1.80 m tall, should not book here, as the ceiling height is very low.
We felt very comfortable on the boat and would book again and again.

Just stayed for my 30th Birthday with my partner. Had a brilliant few days in the Cozy Houseboat. The most comfortable bed, lovely and warm, not too noisy to say how centrally located it is. I would challenge anyone to find a nicer place to stay in a better location. Erik is very welcoming, helped with luggage and showed us how to use the facilities. Thank You for a great time :)

Perfect Location, Lovely AccommodationsWe had a really lovely two-night stay in the Cozy Houseboat--and it lives up to its name! We loved sitting outside on the boat, enjoying a drink and the sunset. For a couple, this is the best way to stay in Amsterdam. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends! Pros: Great location for central Amsterdam sights and central train station; very clean and surprisingly spacious (plenty of room for luggage); Well appointed with coffee/espresso machine, refrigerator, comfortable bed, and towels/linens. Cons: Street noise above bed might be a nuisance for light sleepers; Not really suitable for anyone with mobility issues (steep & narrow stairs, big step from dock to boat).

Thanks dir all
The welcome and stay at Erik or on the houseboat was just perfect. We were glad to have booked here. If we travel to Amsterdam again, we would be happy to be able to visit Erik again. Thanks also for the concessions. Greetings Claudia and Christian
