Amsterdam Houseboat House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam


In the heart of Amsterdam, this ship is for real lovers of historical cargo sailingships which were widely used in Holland for transport throughout the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth century. It's still in authentic condition, which means ceilings are not too high (1.90 mtr. or 6'2" ft). Built in 1888 as a "Haagsche Aak", she is in fact one of the oldest ships in Amsterdam. She is located right in the middle of the Jordaan area, close to the Anne Frank House and Central Station. There is a parking garage free of charge!

The entrance is by a solid bridge with handlebars leading you on deck and to a hatch-type entrance, but do mind the steep staircase! Inside you'll find a very traditional and cosy interior with the old Captain's double bedded family room still fully in tact! Next is a bathroom with shower and toilet. Then into the living-room with kitchenette. The portholes on the sides and windows in the roof provide plenty of light. There is a double bed at the front of the ship and the couch in the living room can also be turned  into a double bed. A fast wireless internet connection, cable television/video and radio/cd player are also at your disposal. 

Sitting outside on deck you have an excellent view over the canal and its typical canal houses. In the area you will find lots of specialized shops and restaurants as well as the Saterdays farmers market. Your hosts serve breakfast on request. You'll find yourself at home in this beautiful part of Amsterdam and we hope to welcome you for a few days on board the Adriana. Reviews.

Houseboat stay
by Kathleen Semansky

We LOVED the houseboat. It was unique, charming, and a real feel of Amsterdam. Would suggest to anybody!

The best houseboat in Amsterdam!
by Jayné Cahill

We had an absolutely fantastic time on this wonderful houseboat! The owner, Jeroen, was brilliant. He welcomed us and showed us around the boat and gave us some fantastic hints of where to go, and what to see. The houseboat is so comfortable, spotlessly clean, and full of character. It was quite cold when we were there but the heating kept us cosy and we could control it to what we wanted. Everything we needed was supplied and the welcome beer very nice! The location couldn't be better - right in the centre, but very quiet at night, so no problem sleeping. Next time we're back we definitely won't be going anywhere else! Thank you for the most wonderful memories!
