    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.

    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
