Boat BK52, Guestroom ***

This 'flagship' contains two guestrooms on both ends of the boat, room BK52 on this page and ROOM BK53. A dream location for couples travelling together.

The originally sailing Dutch barge, type Hagenaar, was later converted to a motor ship and is now moored on the River Amstel,  functioning as a houseboat only. (Its engine was taken out in 2006 and added to the collection of an engine museum). Aboard are, at its both ends, two neatly done guestrooms.

This room is situated upfront under the newly constructed 'forecastle'. You will have available a small sitting room, a bathroom with shower and toilet and a small terrace on the  bow deck.  And not to forget the double bed in the forepeak! Also there is a kitchenette provided with water cooker, coffeemachine, microwave and fridge to prepare breakfast or a cup of soup! With the help of the double hotplate you can even cook a meal if you want. You will have your own padlocked entrance accessible over the 2 meters wide frontal gangway.
The houseboat is located in the middle of the centre (see location), café's and restaurants are  close by. The Utrechtsestraat  is a few hundred metres away and the Rembrandtplein is at less than a 5 minute walk from the boat. You will find yourself surrounded by the canals and old canalhouses and it is a pleasure to see people passing by in all kinds of boats. Smoking is only allowed on deck. There is a radio/cd player, television and wireless internet connection in the room and a hair dryer in the bathroom. Please read some reviews.

Nice and gentle stay
by Michael A. Birrer

We passed 3 Nights at the Houseboat of Hans. A very friendly and easy living guy which gave us an warm welcome. In the boat we had everything we needed: small kitchen place, living room space, and a fantastic comfort bed. The bathroom was small but with a douche and toilet and very the whole boat was very clean. the advantage was, that we were at the amstel, near by metro station and near the center of amsterdam! ... Real nice place to recommend!

Séjour du 28 mai au 2juin
by Réginald Sapin

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable sur cette péniche... L'emplacement est idéal, les alentours plaisants. L'installation est très simple, mais rien ne manque.... Parfait pour quelques jours afin de visiter amsterdam.... J'appréhendais le roulis, mais il est quasiment nul, donc rien a craindre concernant le mal de mer . Convient pour des personnes pas trop exigeantes question luxe... On y retournerait volontiers
