Here you will also find the 'Negen Straatjes' (the Nine Little Streets) with it's many small shops and restaurants. And what about the Haarlemmerdijk - rewarded as the Nicest Shopping Street in the Netherlands in 2011 - just 10 minutes walking away. No better place to just stroll around en enjoy the city at it's best.
This part of Amsterdam also offers lots of culture. The Anne Frank House is located within walking distance, as well as the Westertoren (Wester Tower), Amsterdam Historic Museum, Dam Square, the Royal Palace and Central Station.

How to get there
From the airport you can take a train to central station (20 min). From there you can either walk (20 minutes), take a cab (approximately € 13) or take bus 21 (less than 10 minutes).
How to take bus 21? When you arrive at Central Station, exit on the city side (main Exit). Take bus nr 21 and get off after 5 minutes at the stop “Kostverlorenkade". At a little square in front of a gym. Take the road left of this square and then walk towards the end until you see houseboats ( 300m) ten take a left to number 22 You are in front of our houseboat!
When you decide to come by car. You can park your car almost always near the houseboat. However, Amsterdam is not very “car friendly" as the city charges rather high rates for parking. Alternatively, go to Park and Ride Amsterdam for cheaper parking options. The Park and Ride that is closest to us, is the “P+R Sloterdijk". The cost for Park and Ride is € 8 per day. They offer return tickets for public transport free of charge.
About the area
We live on the verge of the Jordaan area, a very lively and inspiring part of the city. Yet, you are ensured to have a great night rest since we're far away enough from tourist masses. So it is pretty much the best of both worlds.

The boat is vast, beautifully furnished, well located in a calm alley with restaurants and bars close-by, the center of Amsterdam is only a short bike or tram ride away. Nicole is very helpful. A great place to stay!

Superb houseboat and easy to get into town
We stayed here for one night and two days - and fully enjoyed our time in Amsterdam. Staying with Nicole was just superb. The houseboat is equipped with all the amenities you may possibly ask for and the public transport connections are just great to get into town. Highly recommended experience!
