Houseboat summary

Close to Central Station you will find the Amsterdam Bed & Breakfasthouseboat MS Luctor, exclusively suitable for two persons. An original "klipperaak", built in 1913, now converted into a comfortable, stylish and high class apartment, moored on one of the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam, with a splendid view. 

Houseboat description

TThe B&B accommodation in this romantic houseboat is one apartment with three rooms. From the steering cabin you enter the deckhouse, with an internet connection, TV, coffee and tea, and the shower and toilet. Three steps down you descend into the captain hut. An intimate but surprisingly spacious bedroom with a double bed. Weather permitting we serve your terrific breakfast on the large jetty. How would it feel, to stay on a houseboot? Check out our reviews to get the best possible impression!

We have two bicycles waiting for you to get around in Amsterdam, but why not take our Canadian canoe to explore the canals. It's great fun!(And it contributes to the green, environmental responsable way we run our ship, with solar energy, organic products, to mention just a few...)

    A great experience!

    We had a wonderful weekend on the MS Luctor. We were warmly welcomed by Flip and he brought us a generous breakfast every morning. The room is very well equipped, nothing left to be desired. Hair dryer, soap, shower gel, corkscrew everything was available. There was even a bottle of water. It is definitely not the last time we will be guests on the boat!

    Cosy and quirky houseboat - located perfect!

    MS Luctor is an amazing, lovely, cosy and quirky houseboat in a fantastic central but peaceful location. Way better than staying at a hotel.Hope to stay again soon. Flip was an amazing host who couldn't do enough for us. Great coffee machine and the breakfast was lovely too. The weather was cold but the boat very warm and comfortable. I loved everything about my stay, just wish it had been for longer and we had managed to make use of the bikes. 10/10 for everything.

    I love boats so this was a magical place for me to spend the night. I felt at home. Flip is a great guy and the breakfast is wonderful. I'll make sure to book again when I'm back in Amsterdam!

    So we stayed 3 nights in the houseboat and it was awesome. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent and the sounds of the river exponentially more enjoyable than the sounds of a hotel. We used the bikes available. To get around and even went for a paddle in the canoe. All in all a brilliantly individual experience. Highly recommend a visit. Just watch your head on the stairs down to lower levels...  :)

    Absolutely Amazing

    Flip's boat is amazing. First time staying in one and it was beautiful. Bed is very cosy, shower is lovely and the breakfast service was amazing! His handbook was super helpful as we had a late flight the day of check out but we found in the book that we can leave our luggage in the train station for the day for a small change which was marvelous. My boyfriend and I have had an amazing trip and would highly recommend staying here if your staying in Amsterdam. Quiet close to everything and some amazing views around the area. Thank you again Flip!

    Unique experience such a houseboat! Show original

    For us the accommodation was excellent, but for grown-ups it can sometimes be difficult. Quiet location, free bicycles, excellent breakfast and a unique experience to stay on an Amsterdam houseboat.

    So much better then a hotel room


    Very cozy, much attention to detail, loved the experience which is so much more fun than an "ordinary" hotel room.

    Great fun at a great houseboat!

    Flip is the nicest guy! A wonderful breakfast with a beautiful view completed a very unique stay in the wonderful city of Amsterdam! Everybody should definitely grab the provided bikes and explore the city. Great fun!

    We were looking for somewhere peaceful (a short break without kids) but close enough to walk to the centre. Ms Luctor was in the perfect location and Flip was the perfect host. He is really chilled and friendly and made us feel welcome. The boat is clean and the breakfasts were amazing. Would love to come again
