Lovely stay at a very nice boat
Loved staying at de Hoop! The captain’s quarters aren’t the biggest, but it was enough for my husband and I. Amsterdam was experiencing a heat wave during our stay, and with limited possibilities of opening windows the rooms got extremely hot. We were able to open two hatches in the roof, and with the help of the fan provided the temperature got bearable. Besides this, the boat is a gem, the area felt very safe and everything was as expected. Thank you!

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!
