From Central Station you simply take bus 21. That bus takes you right to bus stop 'Vredenhof'. From the bus stop it's just a 300 meter walk to the boat. Do not forget to press the STOP botton on the bus soon as you see 'next stop Vredenhof' on the digital sign inside the bus. The ride from central station takes exactly 15 minutes.

    Quiet and peaceful accommodations in theVery quiet & peaceful

    My mother and I had a lovely stay on the houseboat. The bed is nice and big and very comfortable. There is a mini fridge and complimentary coffee and tea. The boat is in a very peaceful and quiet location yet a bus stop is less than 5 min walking distance away to take you downtown.  Everything was perfect except that there was next to no storage or hooks for ones clothing or luggage. It would also  be great to have more than one hook for ones towels and some shelves in the bathroom. We made die and it worked for the 4 nights we stayed. I would still highly recommend it.

    Great

    We had a nice and wonderful time in Amsterdam, in and around the Houseboat. The room is very beautiful, the bed is great to sleep and the owners were really really nice and helpful. Our Arrival was earlier than the Check-in, so we asked the owner if it's possible to bring our suitcases to the houseboat, that wasn't a problem. The same at the checkout, we had our suitcases in the houseboat After the Check out and picked it up to the start of our drive. Thank you for that!! Best wishes Lia and Flo

    Wonderful and peaceful stay!

    My friend and I had the water view room. The room was so adorable! The decor made everything feel very cozy. Check in process was so very easy! We arrived very late Friday night and had a seamless check in. Wout greeted us the next day and was so nice! The bed was extremely comfortable and the little outdoor deck was perfect for a nice sit in the sun. The location was fantastic... we walked almost anywhere, but can also easily grab an uber from the main road. I would absolutely stay here again! Great experience.

    Ideal quiet stay! Very relaxing.

    We had a lovely long weekend stay here! The houseboat was lovely, very welcoming hosts! The houseboat is in a lovely quiet location just a short bus ride from Central Station which was lovely on an evening to come out of the busyness of Amsterdam center into the peaceful area and get a lovely night's sleep. Would definitely stay again. 

    If I had any suggestions, they would be minor things such as somewhere to hang clothes or some draws as there was nowhere to store clothes and maybe a mirror in the room it's self as only a mirror available in the bathroom. But this did not really bother us on our stay and we would still book again!

    Thanks for having us!

    Comfortable, quiet spot with access to all of the amenities

    My husband and I stayed for two nights and wish we had more time! Very convenient to the city but quite and comfortable. Having bikes, a boat, massages and sauna available were great perks. Close to a beautiful park with great restaurants and the owners are very hospitable. We want to come back when we have more time to enjoy!
