House-Boat B086 ****

This boat is docking at the heart of Amsterdam's main river, the Amstel. If the canals are Amsterdam's characteristic skylines then the Amstel gives the Dutch capital its life & name. The boat is centrally located & moored next to the famous Skinny Bridge & opposite Carré Theater. Peacefully stroll along this picturesque riverbank, visitors will be charmed by the river's architect & activities, and attracted by city's well-known Hermitage Amsterdam Museum, the Blue Bridge & the Stopera city hall/opera house, the open-air Waterloo Market & etc. Just one block away from the boat is Amsterdam's most quaint commercial street, Utrechtsestraat, here guests will find a great range of international restaurants, old Dutch bars, hip cafes and lots of trendy boutiques, delicates shops & art galleries. Only few steps from this street comes Amsterdam's lively entertaining district of Rembrandt Square.

The boat has been transformed recently from a freighter. On entering the boat, guests will be welcomed by a bright & spacious living/dining/cooking area. The combination of a warm wooden floor, fresh green ambience & natural light from sunlight & the original pot holes, makes this boat an ideal accommodation for small groups & families up to 5 persons. There are 2 bedrooms each features 2 double beds. The main bedroom is situated at the entrance & there is wardrobe next to the bed. The second bedroom is at the boat's forepeak therefore the ceiling is low & that gives this original sleeping cabin its charm. There are 2 black leather armchairs in the lounge area plus a large & restful chaise lounge sofa, allowing guests to relax & be entertained by internet-TV, hi-fi system. Free WiFi is also provided. Note, the chaise lounge sofa can be converted into a comfortable double bed to accommodate 2 extra persons. The open-plan kitchen comes fully equipped with all the modern necessities to make your stay hassle free with coffee maker, juicer, microwave, toaster, etc. and the stylish dining table can comfortably seat your party. The bathroom is spaciously illuminated by natural sunlight & modern in look and style, completed with a large bathtub & a shower unit, WC, sink, heating radiator, built-in cabinet etc.,

To enjoy the panoramic view of the bustling Amstel river, a small sun deck is created at the boat's entrance completed with comfortable seating & parasol. Review!

Great Experience
by Gonçalo Oliveira

Staying on a boat was an experience that I had some curiosity and the result was fantastic.
The boat has a spacious living room and bathroom rooms a bit smaller, but it's a boat and thus has limited space) and a very quiet environment.
Is well located, close to downtown and the metro, tram, market and supermarket.
An experience that I recommend!!

Great Experience
by Dennis

This was the second time I stayed in a house boat.
I was expecting House-Boat B086 to be like the first one; a cramped room and barely enough cleaning facilities. I was surprised to see a very spactious living room and bathroom. The bedrooms are still a bit small, but that's expected in a boat where limited space is a concern.
The decoration of the living room was really nice. There's a fridge and a hob for your cooking needs, and a CD/iPod player for a nice atmosphere.
The location is sufficiently central, but it's not exactly in the hearth of the city. You can walk to most of the interesting places in 10-30 minutes. It's also close to tram & metro lines.
One negative point was, the flooring wood was cracking very loudly, so if your friends are sleeping, walking around the living room is a bit unnerving.
In general we were very satisfied with our stay at House-Boat B086, and I would suggest it to anybody who is looking for a different experience than a regular hotel. Just set the expectations as such.
