amsterdam houseboats rentals House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam

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.

Séjour du 28 au 30 janvier 2016
by Edmond THANEL

Malgré le temps, nous avons passé un agréable séjour. Notre hébergement sur péniche mérite quelques commentaires. L'espace est réduit mais suffisant lorsqu'on a davantage à faire à l'extérieur. Le matériel mis à disposition est suffisant pour deux personnes.Le coin literie est parfait. L'accès par une trappe peut-être compliqué pour des personnes âgées, impossible pour des personnes à mobilité réduite...La trappe est lourde et encore davantage lorsque le contrepoids permettant de faciliter l'ouverture est rompu (ce qui nous est arrivé). Une petite terrasse mise à disposition sur la proue de la péniche permet de prendre le petit déjeuner à l'air pur. Idéalement placé à 2mn du premier tram, à 10 mn du centre, l'endroit, sur les bords de l'AMSTEL, est à la fois calme et agréable. Bref si vous préférez la proximité du centre au grand confort d'un hô vous recommande l'option House boat...

Houseboat on the river Amstel
by Craig Miller

This was a perfect and iconic place to stay to explore Amsterdam over a few days. Hans was there to greet us on arrival and provided a warm welcome. The facilities were clean and comfortable, and the boat was well stocked. The view over the Margere Bridge at night from the porthole was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to any couple.
