Experience Amsterdam at it's best from our cool city centre cruiser on the Amstel River!
- Super centrally located on the Amstel River

- Cozy and authentic cruiser
- Two bedrooms, each with a double bed
- Deck terrace
Be welcome aboard our super cozy cruiser, well equipped for an unforgettable stay on the wonderful Amstel River. The location is super central and you will be staying right in the heart of the city. There is a small but useful kitchen to prepare breakfast or a simple meal. The boat - not huge but surprisingly spacious - is docked along another ship and offers waterfront view on one side. The Waterloo Square, Rembrandt Square, Central Station and many more points of interest are all within walking distance.
Staying on our boat will surely add a lot to your holiday. You will see swans, ducks and ships pass by while you sit back and relax, enjoying the scene. The interior of the place is warm and cozy, very authentic and 'nautical'. And the view over the water, the awesome bridge and the historic buildings on the other side of the river are absolutely one of a kind. Simply not comparable to any hotel room you have ever stayed for sure.
There are two cozy bedrooms with a double bed, one in the bow of the ship and one in the middle. As long as you are less than 2 m tall (6,5 ft), the beds are large enough for you for sure. Furthermore there is a cozy living area with tv, a simple but convenient toilet and bathroom with shower. The boat is central heating and two electric heaters so you are assured to be comfortably warm, even on the coldest winter nights. And last but not least: of course you have access to the wheelhouse, the place to feel like a real captain!
Your host will welcome you aboard and show you around so you have the most convenient start of your holiday possible. As soon as you step of the boat, you will find cool things to do literally in every direction you choose to walk. Go North and you will find yourself on the Waterloo Square, searching for cool and rare finds. Go South and feel the buzz on the Rembrandt Square. Go West and visit the flower market, Damrak and the Jordaan. Go East and walk along the wonderful Amstel river to find the majestic Hermitage, Amstel Hotel, Skinny Bridge and enjoy the many wonderful floating homes of your 'fellow houseboaters'!
I'm there to answer any question you may have about either the boat (it's not a regular apartment or hotel room after al) and the city!

How to get there
From Central Station it is just a 5 minute ride by metro to get to the metro station around the corner of the houseboat. Super easy!
About the area
The houseboat is docked on a super central location, on the beginning of the Amstel: the river that gave Amsterdam its name. From the boat you will enjoy the boats, swans and ducks passing by. Within a few minutes walking there are more restaurants and bars than you can possibly visit during your stay. There are many cool points of interest nearby, from the Rembrandt and Waterloo Square to the Skinny Bridge, Hermitage, Flower Market, Damrak etc etc.
The Metro Station is 1 minute walking away, so it's really easy to discover the rest of the city from your houseboat.
My Name is Daan . I rent out this boat since 11 years, and I know what I do. I also rent out two entire houseboats in the same row. Please enjoy Amsterdam amd feel free to ask anything. Kind regards, Daan
6 Reviews - Super central cruiser on the Amstel River
Melanie D - England
The boat was very comfortable with everything we needed. Daan allowed to check in early and was very helpful. Great location, with lots to see on the canal but also quiet at night.

Great host and location
Daan, the owner and his family, were spectacular and wanted nothing less than to see us have a spectacular visit to Amsterdam. He was extremely helpful with recommendations for great food and things to do, while giving us uninhibited access to the boat during our stay. The location of the boat on the canal could not have been in a better place within walking distance of a daily market, restaurants, shopping, and many popular tourist sites! Daan offered his underground parking space in a secure garage during our stay, which was perfect, as we didn’t need the car once it was parked!

This was one of the most wonderful stays I’ve ever had! We booked this boat for Amsterdam pride and it helped us incredibly in having a good time. The location is perfect, the boat is really cute and gave a surprising amount of sleeping space, the view was great to have drinks on the deck at night. Daan came over to chat a few times and was an amazing host, making us feel right at home.

Good option also for families
The location couldn’t be better, Daan, the owner is a very nice guy, the beds are more comfortable than expected: In the one I’m sitting on the pic slept my 13 and 16 yrs old boys and it was large enough for them to sleep comfortably and mine was a bit larger! We slept very well and watching the eclipse from the desk, while listening to music and having drinks was amazing!

Lovely people. Great location. Boat is warm and made the trip. However, I would liked to have seen better blankets and it could use a deep clean. I would re-visit.
