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.

Great little houseboat!
by Marta Goldman

I stayed with my daughter (11) and nephew (13) for three nights in November, and we really enjoyed the houseboat. The location was very convenient to Amsterdam Centraal, several tram stops, restaurants, and tourist sites. The boat had everything we needed to be comfortable (great beds and very cozy comforters), and we received a very friendly greeting with information upon arrival. The owner provided a contact to reach out to during our stay if we had questions or had any issues, and response time was always great.
The kids slept great in the bunk room, and we really loved having a full-size washer and dryer to stay on top of our laundry. Two points to consider... As others have mentioned, it's not the most quiet spot, but I was able to sleep well enough through any noise and I'm a fairly light sleeper. The bigger challenge for me was light, because it's also a very bright corner during the night. I eventually used some extra sheets to darken the windows a little, and that did the trick.

Sehr schöner Aufenthalt Im Hausboot B092 Bouwersgracht 95 G
by Thomas Kropmanns

Wir waren für 3 Nächte auf dem Hausboot, es war das erste mal und es war sehr,sehr schön und erholsam.
Das Boot befindet sich in ausgezeichneter Lage und wir hatten eine schöne Zeit dort. Vielen Dank für die nette Einweisung und die guten Tipps bei der Ankunft.

Enjoyable Stay
by Victoria Metzger

Four of us stayed on this houseboat for 3 nights and it was a great experience! The location is great. It's very close to lots of attractions and to many tram stops. The house was very clean and spacious. The four of us did not feel like we were on top of each other at all. We really enjoyed having wine and cheese out on the deck, even thought it was small. Our only complaint would be that the boat is located directly in front of a bar and it got a bit noisy at night. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this houseboat!
