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.

2 Couples + Awesome weekend
by Amanda Maran

Jeroen was such a spelendid host. He is extreemly welcoming and accomodating. The boat was perfect for two couples, we each had our privacy. Sunday, we layed out on the top of the boat and enjoyed the sunshine (even thought it was the beginning of March). The location could not be better, you have everything at your fingertips. The shower was AWESOME - the bathroom was really well done and luxurious. We had two very tall guys, but they were still very comfortable even though the ceilings are quite low. We brought back food from the market place and kept it in the kitchen to re-heat for snacks. Best time of my life. I would recommend this to anyone that wants an authentic Amsterdam houseboat experience. We loved and we will certainly do it again! Thank you!
