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.

Excellente location.
by Fanny Thiennot

Le bateau était encore mieux en vrai que sur les photos, la déco très colorée, le tout situé dans un quartier calme mais à même pas deux petites rues de quartiers animés, avec commerces et lieux pour sortir s'amuser (le ice bar notamment). Il est facile de s'y rendre à pieds depuis la gare (central) qui n'est qu'à environ 30 minutes en trainant des pieds, car le chemin est tout droit et il permet de se donner une première impression de la ville et des visites à faire quand on vient pour la première fois.
La péniche est extrêmement bien équipée. Sur place sont mis à votre disposition shampoing, gel douche, sel, poivre, vinaigre balsamique, bombe pour wc, et j'en passe. Il y avait également des livres et cds dans le salon, mais beaucoup de boites de cds étaient vides, ce que j'ai trouvé dommage. J'imagine que des locataires ont du les voler ? Cela dit, on a écouté ceux qui restaient et ils étaient tops.
Bref, j'ai adoré mon séjour, j'ai adoré découvrir la ville mais encore plus avec cette location. Je reviendrai très certainement et si mon boulot et mon compte en banque ne me retenaient pas, je reviendrais tout de suite.

My english is not good enough to translate what I said in french about this boat so I can only say quickly: IT. WAS. AWESOME.
It's so pretty and in a lovely place near to wonderful things like the Ice bar or the marqt and it is calm so you can sleep whenever you want.
Inside the boat there is already things like salt, pepper, shampoo, soap etc etc, it is a very nice and usefull attention.
I will definitely come back again cause I really really really enjoyed it and I'm so sad to be back in France, even if the weather is better here. Amsterdam is better in almost everything else.

Boat BK52, Guestroom
by Susanna von Oertzen

Wir waren über Pfingsten im Bug des Hausboots einquartiert und haben eine herrliche Zeit in Amsterdam verbracht. Trotz der zentralen Lage direkt neben der Mageren Brug (zu Fuß man den Grachten entlang kommt man bequem zu allen Punkten der Innenstadt) ist es abends erstaunlich leise (wenn die feucht-fröhlichen Ausflügler offenbar nicht mehr aufs Wasser dürfen), der Blick auf die Amstel von der kleinen Terrasse ist wunderschön und das Mini-Appartement sehr sinnig mit allem Nötigen eingerichtet - eine Schiffskajüte eben. Die Schlafkoje im Bug selbst ist überraschend hell und geräumig, das Bett bequem. Man muss allerdings noch klettern können (Einstieg über Leiter)und für sehr große Menschen mag es auch ein wenig beschwerlich sein. Für einen Kurztrip von ein paar Tagen unbedingt zu empfehlen!

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 !
