Amsterdam Houseboat House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam

BOAT BK52, guestroom ***

This 'flagship' contains two guestrooms on both ends of the boat, room BK52 on this page and room BK53. 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 situated upfront under the newly constructed 'forecastle'. You will have available a small sitting room, a bathroom with shower and toilet and a small terrace on the  bow deck.  And not to forget the double bed in the forepeak! Also there is a kitchenette provided with water cooker, coffeemachine, 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 padlocked entrance accessible over the 2 meters wide frontal gangway.
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. Please read some reviews.

Séjour Féérique
by carole emery

Nous avons passé 4 nuits sur la péniche.
Je n'ai qu'un mot : Parfait
La péniche est très bien équipée.
Quand à Hans, le propriétaire, celui-ci est tout simplement d'une gentillesse hors-pair.
je recommande vivement cette péniche.

Wunderbaren Aufenthalt
by Luise Fehringer

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in Amsterdam. Ohne das Hausboot wäre es nur halb so schön gewesen. Wir fanden es richtig cool auf dem Boot. Hans war ein sehr angenehmer Gastgeber. Wir werden besonders dieses Hausboot weiter empfehlen: der Standpunkt war ideal zentral (Bäcker, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Fahrradverleih um die Ecke) und trotzdem ruhig in der Nacht. Wir genossen auf der Bootsterrasse das Treiben auf der Amstel und den nächtlichen Blick auf die magere Brücke. Es war super!!!
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Hannes und Luise

Fantastic place
by Tina H

The room is cosy and you have everything you need. You can make your own dinner in the little kitchen or walk a short distance to one of the many restaurants. Its a nice and quiet place and from the deck you can watch the boats om Amstel while enjoying a cup of homemade coffee.
