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 Experience and lovely host
by Elisabeth Neulinger

A friend and I stayed at the houseboat for our weekend trip to Amsterdam and we absolutely loved it. Hans the host has been super friendly and helpful, he was also very flexible in accommodating our need to check out later on Sunday. The location of the boat is great for exploring the city, just 30 minutes walk to Anne Frank house and lots of restaurants and bars close by.

This house boat is wonderful. I can't imagine a better place for a stay in Amsterdam.

Urlaub auf dem Hausboot: Einfach - aber super!
by Siegfried Fassbinder

Wir haben uns erstmals für einen Kurzurlaub auf einem alten "Hausboot" entschieden und es nicht bereut! Besser kann man einen Tag in Amsterdam kaum beginnen: Frühstück auf dem ganz leicht schwankenden Bug in der Sonne auf der Amstel mit schönem Blick auf die "Magere Brücke".
Die Kajüte ist zwar sehr einfach und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, aber die fantastische zentrale Lage entschädigt dafür umso mehr. Am Ende des Tages kuschelt man sich in seine breite Doppelbett-Koje und schaut durch das Bullauge direkt über das Wasser der Amstel auf die erleuchtete alte "Magere Brücke". Schon vor dem Einschlafen ein Traum!
PS: Wir kommen bestimmt wieder Hans :)
