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.

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.

Übernachtung Hausboot
by Arnd Vogel

Tolles kleines Idyll, alles vorhanden auf wenig Raum mit gutem breiten Bett - wozu braucht der Mensch mehr Luxus ? Wir haben uns total wohl gefühlt und wer sich auf die äußeren Bedingungen einlässt und grölende Jugendliche in der Nacht auf der Strasse (nicht auf dem Wasser) oder die gelegentlichen Überquerungen auf das Nachbarboot gelassen hinnimmt (und Gelassenheit ist eh gut in dieser einzigartigen Stadt), wird eine wunderschöne Zeit in Amsterdam verbringen. Herausragend : am Abend auf Deck sitzen und das Treiben der Boote auf der Amstel und die quirligen Radfahrer auf der nahen Magere Brug bestaunen. Und zudem : zentrale Lage, die gesamt Altstadt ist zu Fuß erreichbar. Nur noch bei Hans !

Amsterdam pendant 5 jours début juillet.
by Laurent WEILL

Globalement nous sommes satisfaits de notre séjour sur la péniche. Nous étions un couple. Avons profité de la terrasse. Bon accueil du propriétaire. Bonne literie. Peut être manque t il de la vaisselle. Quelques bols, tasses, des couverts, saladiers seraient nécessaires. Un grand super marché est à environ 500 m et est ouvert tous les jours jusqu'à 22 heures.
