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.

Great time !!
by Alix Motais de Narbonne

We spent 5 days and 4 nights at this place with my friend and we loved it ! Hans welcomed us very nicely and explained everything very clearly ! We did not expect the boat to be that big and comfortable so we were happily surprised ! I really recommend this place which is located in the heart of the city but far enough from the noise and the crowd !

No complaints, much praise!
by Xanthe

Hans is very friendly, and he's done a great job converting the houseboat - the living space is small but doesn't feel small, everything is compact and fits together very well, making for a comfortable and affordable stay. Great location near the National Opera and Ballet and the centre of the city. Moored so that there's sun on the deck in the morning but shade in the evening - we had breakfast up top each day before going out for a day's exploring. The view from the porthole in the bedroom is delightful - at night you can see the lights from the nearby bridges shining on the water. Highly recommended.

Great loccation
by Annemay Gjedrem Lie

The location was great. It was a peaceful and beautiful place, but at the same time in the city center.Easy access to trams. No luxury, but the basic you needed. Not suited for old people, the ladder was step.If we come back to Amsterdam we would like to stay in the same place.
