35 Reviews - Cozy Houseboat
Great stay on a great houseboat! Thanks Erik!
I had an amazing stay in Amsterdam and most of that was due to Erik and his staff's warm hospitality. He is very welcoming and even help me with bringing down the luggage. The room is cozy and very brightly light by natural lighting. The decor is simple and elegant. Bed was comfortable. Place is exceptionally close to Centraal Station and all the must see places and things to do are within walking or biking distance. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip. Thanks for everything Erik. You're truly an amazing host.

We stayed two nights and absolutely loved it. The houseboat is so pretty and in a really great location - easy to get to from the train station and a short walk to most attractions. We had dreadful weather while we stayed but we were lovely and warm inside the boat. Would definitely recommend it.

Perfect experienceMy stay at this houseboat was exactly what I had hoped for. It is in a really convenient location, the staff were friendly on arrival and the space is just perfect, so clean, modern and more spacious than expected. The bed is comfortable and it is a really private and peaceful spot despite being so central. It's nice sitting there watching other boats pass by and chatting to the nice man from the workshop next door :) I highly recommend this cosy houseboat and wish I could have had more time there! Thank you!
Wonderful houseboat - close to centre
This annex to a Houseboat is perfect for if you want somewhere to stay for some downtime but still close to the centre of Amsterdam. It is very close to Central Station, Nieuwmarkt, Dam Square, and everywhere else is easily walkable. Erik was friendly and helpful, the boat was clean and well presented, and you can make plenty of use of the free wifi and coffee machine. If you have any mobility issues, just be aware there are some steep stairs to get to the decking where the boat is.

Very Cozy indeed
This boat was just a perfect little hideout.
I was a bit worried that it could be too cold staying on a boat in November and loud being so close to the Prins Hendrikade - but not at all. This room on the boat is just lovely as is the owner. Thank you - will certainly consider booking with you again :o)
