Amsterdam Houseboat House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam


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.

Nel cuore da Amsterdam
by Anna Garmay

Location molto caratteristica e comoda per raggiungere in pochi minuti di bicicletta i posti più noti. La house boat dovrebbe essere pulita esternsmente soprattutto la parte dell' ingresso. Da curare la pulizia della dotazione del letto. Lenzuola e cuscini macchiati. È poi dei cuscini nòn troppo spessi.

We komen terug
by Birgit Jakobs

Die Lage des Hausboots ist fabelhaft: Mitten im Leben und idealer Ausgangspunkt, die Stadt zu erkunden. Es wurde uns ein herzlicher und informativer Empfang bereitet. Die Grösse des Bootes reicht für vier erwachsene Personen vollkommen aus. Die Ausstattung war besser als erwartet. Schön wäre ein etwas wohnlicheres Vorderdeck.
Wie haben Streetlife und einzigartige Atmosphäre im Jordaan sehr genossen. Einzigartige Cafes und Restaurants, kleine trendy Boutiquen und Geschäfte. Und nicht zuletzt die Nächte in der Gracht auf Deck mit einer Flasche Wein.
Die Zeit war zu kurz, aber wir kommen gerne wieder. Dann mit fiets, auch das muss man wohl unbedingt erleben ...
