amsterdam houseboats rentals House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam

House-Boat B092 ***

This boat is located on the edge of the very popular Jordaan in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, just a short walk from the Central Station Amsterdam. Around the corner there is the famous Noordermarket (market days are Saturday and Monday), Anne Frank House and many restaurants, cafés and pubs. This is the place to experience Amsterdam.
In 2012,  the owner lovingly renovated the boat that has a colourful history.  It was originally built in 1934 to be tugged around Amsterdam with deck freight. The owner christened her, after his wife, ‘Jantje’.  Jantje was known for liking a drink or two. Very quickly the people of Amsterdam named the boat the ‘blauwe’ Jantje. Blauw is not only the colour blue but also means intoxicated in street language.
This colourful history was the theme for the interiour of the boat, which is blue. The boat has a  well-equipped open plan kitchen,  a bathroom and a separate toilet. The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed. There is also a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed.

Visiting Amsterdam 28.06.-02.07.2016
by Matthias Lühmann

We knew the boat from our last visit and were expressly looking for it another time because of the perfect location, the nice area and the sweet home. Love the bed rocking like a cradle while touristboats are going by... Last time it was a bit cleaner (spiderwebs, a little dust, pooped terrace and chairs), but the basics (bedroom, sanitary, floor) were fine. We felt like home and had a good time. Hosting was very nice. Thanks Amsterdam for another lovely week!!

Lovely boat, Great location
by Paola Macagnino

The boat is lovely, very well equipped, spacious and totally comfortable for our family group of four. Our sons (aged 6 and 4) loved watching the ducks in the canal. Great location: short walk away from the train station and the city center, but still quiet enough to relax. If you have a bike, you can get anywhere in a few minutes. Our host was friendly and helpful.
Definitely recommend it! We look forward to coming again!

Amazing accommodations in Amsterdam!
by Elizabeth Thuning

In my experience, the best way to get a good feel for a place I'm visiting is to immerse myself in the surroundings ... become a part of where I am. When my mother, sister and I chose Amsterdam for our latest excursion we couldn't resist the opportunity to spend our down time among the locals on a canal in our very own house-boat, 'Blauwe' Jante. Owner, Jochem Bakker, has a great place which is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main drags to make one feel as if you're a million miles away. It was a terrific alternative to a cramped hotel room and gave us the space we all needed in the evening to relax and banter about our activities of the day. The boat was clean, well furnished and left nothing to be desired. Jochem was kind enough to stop by to acquaint us with the place and provide us with several tips on sights to see and great restaurants to try which we did our best to do in the short time we were there. We all agreed that we'd made the right choice in our accommodations and would highly recommend! Until next time ...
