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.

Houseboat heaven
by Nicholas Ellsworth

Our time in this houseboat was so enjoyable! Hans is the friendly owner, who has spent many years working and also living on the boat. The ceilings are tall, the shower is big, and the place is very clean. It's definitely tight living quarters, but there is tons of storage and the deck upstairs is a great place to enjoy a drink. You cannot best the location. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic four days
by Siobhan Donnelly

We have never stayed on a houseboat before but were blown away by how lovely the experience was. The place felt very much like a second home, with a tradition of people leaving basics such as coffee/toiletries etc which were very appreciated on the arrival day. We were lucky enough to have front row seats to the Amsterdam Pride festival and the position of this property is perfect for a host of other reasons too; close to the tram, to all major areas, supermarkets and pharmacy nearby. The owner lives in a different section of the boat and was on hand if we ever needed, he was very friendly and accomodating. We didn't use the hot plate but the fridge was a godsend for fresh food, the shower worked extremely well and everything was very clean. We are already planning our next stay!
