    Great place for 2

    We enjoyed staying here and the host was lovely. Just big enough for a couple with most things a short walk away. Will recommend this to friends. Thank you Isadora and Christion

    Nice and cozy place

    Me and my boyfriend spend a short week end on Isadora houseboat and it was really nice. We loved to stay in a typical Amsterdam accommodation and to wake up with swans and ducks passing in front of our room! Isadora was nice and very communicative. We really recommend to stay in her tiny and cozy houseboat!

    Nice renovated tiny boat!

    Perfect location to explore many city attractions! The houseboat is tiny but with all the essentials for a comfortable stay. We found it a very clean and a nice option for a relaxing time off with a friend.

    Houseboat review

    Lovely little houseboat, small and practical. Not luxurious. But nice to sit at the water’s edge, sip a glass of wine and watch the boats going by. Would definitely stay again. Thanks.

    P.S. More towels, some shower toiletries- small detail though

    Highly recommended!

    The host outdid herself, providing a welcoming snack and being very flexible with checkout time when possible. I'd give a sixth star if I could.

    Super tiny houseboat

    We had a delightful stay on the tiny city center houseboat. There were livy storms around and we felt close to the elements but safe and warm!

    Fantastic Boathouse

    Fantastic Boathouse with large windows.

    Waking up there is amazing! You feel like you're in the middle of the canal. 

    It's very central, clean smooth nice decorated place.

    Birthday Wish Come true!

    Found this gem on line and I must say I was very happy with the houseboat. It was a great way to experience a quintessential Amsterdam stay. I went for my birthday, with my husband and we were pleased at the location, the cleanliness, the views and the whole experience. We are already planning our return trip to the houseboat. The cherry-on-top was being greeted by the owner with a birthday card and bottle of champagne in hand. 

    Thank you Tiny City Center Houseboat! Loved it!

    Great little houseboat with everything you need. Quiet street, but not far from restaurants, bars etc. All in all, an excellent place to stay in Amsterdam.
