House-Boat B038 ***

In the heart of Amsterdam, this ship is for real lovers of historical cargo sailingships which were widely used in Holland for transport throughout the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth century. It's still in authentic condition, which means ceilings are not too high (1.90 mtr. or 6'2" ft). Built in 1888 as a "Haagsche Aak", she is in fact one of the oldest ships in Amsterdam. She is located right in the middle of the Jordaan area, close to the Anne Frank House and Central Station. This boat lies next to Houseboat B066.

The entrance is by a solid bridge with handlebars leading you on deck and to a hatch-type entrance, but do mind the steep staircase! Inside you'll find a very traditional and cosy interior with the old Captains double bedded family room still fully intact! Next is a bathroom with shower and toilet. Then into the living-room with kitchenette. The portholes in the side and windows in the roof provide plenty of light. There is a double bed at the front of the ship and the couch in the living room can also be turned  into a double bed so that 3 persons can sleep separately. A fast wireless internet connection, cable televesion/video and radio/cd player are also at your disposal. 

Sitting outside on deck you have an excellent view over the canal and its typical canal houses. In the area you will find lots of specialized shops and restaurants as well as the Saterdays farmers market. Your hosts serve breakfast on request. You'll find yourself at home in this beautiful part of Amsterdam and we hope to welcome you for a few days on board the Adriana. Reviews.

local and cosy
by Jette Danholm Kristiansen

We have enjoy a week in this old but cosy boat in the middle of Amsterdam. We were two adult and two teenagers. Keizergrath is the perfect place to live for, here is quired and very nice and you live just in the middle of old Amsterdam. On the corner there is a bakery and Go just around the corner and you have all the restaurant, cafe and markedplace you need. We love this area in Amsterdam, and we love to have the possibility to make a cup of coffee or make some food in the little kitchen and sit on the boat just looking at ships comming by, people walking over the bridge an so on.
So we will recommand a stay at the boat.

The boat is very well maintained and no issues at all with any aspect. The location is stunning and I am pretty certain to make a return visit.

Accueil au top ... environnement flop !
by Marcel Maison

L'accueil de notre hôte a été très sympathique. Merci Jeroen !
Le bateau offre tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un agréable moment dans cette belle ville d'Amsterdam. Il est spacieux, chaleureux et bien équipé.
Un conseil : appeler son hôte quelques jours avant pour se renseigner sur l'environnement. C'est ce que je ferai à présent.
