BOAT BK75, guestroom ***
This B&B for one couple, is named 'The KeizerInn' and derives its name from the location on the Nieuwe Keizersgracht in Central Amsterdam. A quiet place where you can sleep well and safe, and yet with all interesting buildings and places within walking distance. In less then a 10 minute walk you can visit the Hermitage, the Waterloo square, de "Magere Brug', the Zoo, Royal Theatre Carré and many other interesting places and musea.
Your host can give you on request for a small surcharge, a laid back tour in his super selfmade 'lounge boat' through the canals, (see the picture below of the loungeboat).
Privacy is important for your host, so he create a private entrance to the cabin with bedroom below, well isolated. From the wheelhouse you have an excellent view over the canal and the adjacent park. Below you find a double bed, a modern shower and an underfloor heating. With coffee- and tea supplies. There is a radio, telvision and wifi. There is a lot of traffic during the day, canal bikes and boats with tourists will pass.When the weather is nice and you sit on the deck, tourists will wish they were you when you relax on the deck enjoying a drink!
Not only the location, but also the boat is exceptional. The KeizerInn is part of a Gronginger Bol, a steel ship from 1904 that has long served as a freighter. Not only the obvious nature of the ship, but also some details that have survived, provide an intimate atmosphere and make your stay in the KeizerInn pleasant and unforgettable. A supermarket is nearby as well as many restaurants and café's. Review!
