We stayed for four nights at the houseboat „de hoop“ and it was wonderful. The boat was very very clean and nicely decorated. Ijburg is a quiet and beautiful place to stay and relax.
I highly recommend it. We‘ll be back.

De Hoop is a cosy old ship with comfortable features in Ijburg and we enjoyed our stay very much. Daniela and Claas welcomed us very friendly and gave us good inspirations for our Amsterdam trip. We like to come again!

Wonderful alternativ to a hotel
My boyfriend and I had an unforgettable time on this beautiful houseboat. The boat is very cozy, clean and well decorated. The host is very friendly and helpful and gave us a lot of information about tours, restaurants, and things to see in Amsterdam.
The boat is the perfect place to relax and a wonderful alternative to a hotel in town!

Maximum space in Best Location
De Hoop is an easy tram-ride to a quiet suburb. Right next to grocery stores.
On board, more space than a conventional hotel room!

Amazing place to stay and just relax
We had unforgettable 4 nights on this beautiful boat in a peaceful area just 15 minutes from Amsterdam Centraal. We can highly recommend 'De Hoop' as one of the best alternatives compared to a hotel in town.
Thanks again to Daniela and Klaas for having us!!!
