Amsterdam Houseboat House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam

BOAT BK142, guestroom ***

This is a lovely small studio on a houseboat with a private entrance. It consists of a room, bathroom and kitchenette and a couch in front of the boat on the street side. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming and you have privacy.  The location is excellent, on the Korte Prinsengracht, a ten minute walk from Central Station. The owner placed a web cam on his boat, and here you see a movie of the 'Eenhoornsluis', made by Thomas Schlijper. On the right side you see the white boat (with plants on the roof).

The neighbourhood is lively with café's and restaurants. The Anna Frank House, the Noordermarkt with a lot of vintage (Saturdays and Mondays) and the Jordaan with the famous nine little streets are nearby. Mooring right on the site of Amsterdam's monumental Unicorn Sluis Bridge & Lock dating back in the 15th century and on the Korte Prinsengracht, in-line with the famous Prinsengracht. Looking down the Prinsengracht you can see the tower of the Westerchurch. Also the Wednesday natural foods market on the Haarlemmerplein is a 5 minute walk.

Guests here are in for a real treat due to the fact of staying right at the heart of the culture, shopping, dining and nightlife of two most colourful and boisterous streets of Amsterdam, Haarlemmerstraat & Haarlemmerdijk, and the vibrant neighbourhood of the Jordaan district.

The Asoka (someone named the boat previously after an Indian Prince) is an original Dutch house boat. It was first a wrought iron work ship launched in 1908. The house part was built into the curves of the boat in the 1930's.

After many incarnations it has evolved into this lovely place on the Korte Prinsengracht for you to enjoy. Feel the romance in your cosy little home on the canal as the city streams about you. Feel your houseboat gently sway when boats pass by.

Feel your love and lover in a totally wonderful setting encircled in the passion of Amsterdam. It is all part of the 'house boat experience' that we have here in Amsterdam. A tradition that's been quietly going on for a hundred years. And now, you have a chance to enjoy the water, to share with your partner, to entwine yourselves in the history, love, and romance of this lovely houseboat on the Korte Prinsengracht.

Special , familiar accommodation in convenient location
by Eva Stollberger

We enjoyed our Stay on the asoka very much. Ted was very nice and explained how to use the kitchen/gave us directions and so on.and we could check in earlier, thanks Ted! One remark: it wasn't very clean, especially the bathroom, and rather dusty and there were some really old half empty jams etc with fungus left in the fridge. But all in all it was tolerable!

Memorable experience
by Deeyna Velasquez

Staying on Teds boathouse was the most memorable part of our trip to Amsterdam!
I recommend this to anyone looking for a more local experience. Aside from the experience and views this boathouse was also located in a part of the city close to so many shops/restaurants.
Ted was extremely responsive and helpful before and during our stay. His boat house had everything we needed during our stay (appliances , flat iron, umbrella).
If we return back to the city, we know exactly where we will be staying.
Thank you again Ted!
