House-Boat B050 ****

Highly recommended for 4 - 5 persons! This former barge from 1897 has recently been transformed into a spacious luxury accommodation with a nice deck to sit outside. The boat is moored in the city centre and yet on a quiet and safe location without much traffic. Nice restaurants and cafes are all around, the Opera House and the Music Hall are within walking distance, as are the Zoo, Botanical Gardens and the Waterlooplein (flea market). It's a 15 minute walk to the Damsquare and Central Station. A supermarket is also nearby.

The design uses modern and warm colours. In the cosy wheelhouse of the boat is a dining table where you can sit for hours, with the doors open to the deck.  A few steps below is the living room with open plan kitchen. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a tub and the other with shower),  2 toilets and a nice deck. The boat is equipped with all modern conveniences, such as central heating, washing machine and dryer, flatscreen television and free access to wireless internet. Smoking is (only) allowed in the cabin.

Nous avons passé 4 jours merveilleux sur cette peniche, super bien située, dans un quartier calme, et à 10 minutes à pieds de waterlooplein, ou 10 minutes à peine en tram de la place du Dam.
Le zoo est juste de l'autre coté du canal, on peut donc entendre les cris des singes ou autres oiseaux tropicaux, ce qui rend ce lieu encore plus atypique.
La peniche en elle meme est tres chaleureuse, il manque rien du tout, elle est parfaite pour 2 couples d'amis comme nous, tout le monde a sa place, elle est assez grande pour ne pas avoir l'impression de se marcher dessus. Toilettes et salle de bain pour chaque chambre ce qui est loin d'etre negligeable.
Mention speciale à Carolien pour son superbe accueil avec visite complete de la peniche, et plein de petits conseils pour trouver des spots dans le quartier, on s'y sent chez soi en 2 secondes et il est compliqué de repartir tellement ce lieu rend le voyage inoubliable.
Reservez sans hesiter, nous le ferons à nouveau lors de notre prochain trip à Amsterdam.
Merci Caro ;-)

Three night business stay (Design Icons)

Having stayed on a houseboat on my previous business trip to Amsterdam, I was keen to do the same again. This boat was by far my favourite. It was warm and cosy even though it was February, and was on the opposite side of the canal to the Zoo, which was great to hear the animals in the distance when you wake up in the morning!
The bedrooms were roomy, and the lounge and kitchen well equipped. There was also a lovely braekfast area, which sadly I didn't have time to enjoy. It's perfect for two couples, or a couple with children, and there is parking bays all along the canal - although it's roughly 4 Euros an hour!
The walk to the centre, near the train station takes roughly 15 minutes, and is a very easy walk. This houseboat is situated in a perfect rural position, with a good selection of restarants and bars nearby.

Wunderbar ruhig und doch zentral gelegen. Vom A'dam CS bei normalen Tempo mit Rucksack 15 Min. Vom Boot zum Waterlooplein 10 Min. Und dann ist man ja schon mitten im Zentrum. Total problemlose Übergabe des Bootes. Ausstattung würde ich beschreiben als holländisch typisch gemütlich. Allerdings nicht für trittsichere Mieter geeignet. Kleine Einstiegstür und dann eine steile
Treppe ins Unterdeck. Im Boot sind die genieteten Bordwände sichtbar, zwei tolle Schlafzimmer - eins davon direkt in den halbrunden Bug gebaut. Bequeme Matratzen, vernüftge Sanitäre Einrichtungen. Es mcht Spaß dort zu sein. Wir waren im Winter dort, die Heizung funktionierte super. Zu empfehlen!!!
