Boat BK53, Guestroom ***

This 'flagship' contains two guestrooms, ROOM BK53 on this page and ROOM BK52 under the newly constructed forecastle.  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 at the backside. It includes the use of the wheelhouse, from which you have a magnificant view over "de Magere Brug" (the Skinny Bridge). Besides that, you'll have available a small sitting/bedroom, a bathroom with shower and toilet, and a small terrace on the deck. Not to forget the double bed in the stern. Also there is a kitchenette provided with water cooker and coffee machine , 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 entrance directly into the cabin.

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.

au fil de l'eau
by thierry sansarricq

un très agréable séjour au rythme du fleuve sur une péniche agréable et typique. Un spectacle incessant de vie du fleuve depuis le ponton du bateau du matin au petit déjeuner au soir devant bière, saumon, anguille ... et à la nuit tombée un peu de lecture dans la cabine face au gouvernail. Moment insolite, que du bonheur, un petit nid douillet pour une vie à l'amstellodamois. Sans comparaison avec une chambre d'hôtel.

Nous sommes très satisfaits par notre séjour a bord, et nous tenons a souligner l'accueil tellement sympathique de Hans: excellente adresse.

Great Place to Stay
by James Miraglia

We stayed here during the 2nd week of August. I'm not sure how I found it because it's not in TripAdvisor but it should be. Hans was a great host & the bow of the ship makes a great accomodation. It's right in the heart of the city by the Skinny Bridge. It was great fun sitting with a bottle of wine & watching all the boaters & people enjoying themselves. Whatever you need is within walking distance including the Tram. But it is NOT for people who have mobility issues. climbing up the ladder & through the hatch was not an issue for us but it may be for some. I'm very glad I selected this "hotel."
