Houseboat summary

Welcome to our houseboat 'Drijfpaleis', which means 'floating palace'!

Come and stay in my romantic selfbuilt houseboat in fantasy-Italien style, located in Arnhem. In our Firenze Room, which sleeps two, it always feels like holiday. Enjoy the peace of the streaming water, bread begging ducks and geese, fishing cormorants and sometimes a kingfisher. Passing cruise and cargoboats will rock the boat in a loving pace. 

Houseboat description

Drijfpaleis is situated in the historic city centre of Arnhem, on the river Nederrijn, right at the end of the quay. From the boat it is just a nice stroll along the quay right into citylife with bars, restaurants, cinema's, theaters, musea and shops. Central trainstation and busstation for city and regional busses and taxi's all depart from the same place. It is just a 10 minute walk to the boat. The city of Arnhem is captured between our big rivers and the moraine Veluwe and Betuwe in province Gelderland.

The room

The Firenze Room offers 32m2 of space and is very tastfully decorated and applied with all modern comfort. There's a little kitchen for all to use with seats, a microwave and free coffee and tea. The big terras garden with lots of mozaiek has nice cosy corners to read and relax.

    Danke, danke, danke - Super Hausboot!

    Es ist so schön, anzukommen , den Plattenspieler anzumachen, ein bißchen am Strickzeug weiterzustricken, oder etwas zu malen auf der Leinwand, die der Hausherr uns zum Empfang gab. Die Kinder waren auch begeistert, weil es " gar nicht wie sonst im Hotel ist, sondern eher wie zu Hause!" Frühstück einsame Spitze, Facit: So kann man prima 50 werden!!! Danke!

    Wunderbares Hausboot in Arnhem

    Ich wollte meinem Mann ein ganz besonderes Geburtstagsgeschenk machen und habe mit dem Drijfpalais einen Volltreffer gelandet! Das Hausboot ist einfach märchenhaft und mit so viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Aber nicht nur das Ambiente passte. Auch die top Lage (max. 10 Min. Fußweg zum Centrum), das tolle Frühstück und der freundliche und hilfsbereite Eigentümer Ruud haben uns und unseren Sohn begeistert. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!
