Amsterdam Houseboat House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam

HOUSEBOAT B117 *****

This former barge from 1896 is pretty large for 2 persons, but the owners made the interiour intimate and very comfortable. It is just completely and traditional restored and transformed into a luxury accommodation, perfect for a romantic couple or honeymoon. In the neighbourghood you can rent small motorboats to make a tour.

The interior is done by a interior designer and the hippie-boho chic interior is elegant and stylish, a light and open loft like space. The main materials used are Birmese teak and French Oak. The fully equipped kitchen with a stove any chef would appreciate is based in the original galley on the stern overlooking the spacious living room formerly known as the den (the cargo hold) with a cosy fireplace and lots of portholes.

The bow holts the spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower and a large bedroom with a modern version of a traditional cupboard bed . Both the living room as well as the bedroom has a panorama-glass roof overlooking all the breathtaking canal houses part of Unesco World Heritage site. And of course all necessaries like wifi, flatscreen, sound system, micro-wave, and espresso-coffeemaker are available. There is outside on the deck a couch and two 'hanging' chairs from where you can overview the canal and all passing ships!

The boat is moored in the first canal of the city that is called 'the Singel'. The wealthiest merchants in the city settled here in the 17th century and the whole environment recalls earlier times, when Amsterdam had a very thriving trade and port. It was not just trade that flourished in the Golden Age: Dutch artists and scientists of the time are still world-famous today.

At this stunning spot you will have a direct view on the "Koepel Church" and the "Eenhoornsluis" a very important sea-lock also from the 17th century also knows as "souvenir d'Amsterdam" a well known painting by Matthijs Maris (1871) to be seen at the Rijksmuseum. It is on short walking distance to the Central Station (Amsterdams main transport hub) and all the main city attractions as: the Anne Franks House, the Western Church, the Dam square with its famous palace, the smallest house on the world on Singel 7, Cafe Papeneiland (the oldest cafe in Amsterdam-1641), the Northern Church with its organic and flea market and just around the corner the Haarlemmerstreet-voted best street in the Netherlands- with its authentic cafe's, trendy bars, hip restaurants and unique boutique shops. Also for the organic and vega-lovers the place to be.

Fantastic stay
by Graham Gill

We loved our stay in this houseboat on the Singel Canal.
Sometimes when you rent somewhere for a holiday the decor can be quite generic but you can see that the owner has given a lot of thought to the aesthetics of the boat.
The bed is also very comfortable and we slept well.
All in all it was a brilliant holiday on an outstanding houseboat.

Beautiful Houseboat!
by Isabel W.

We had such a great time at this houseboat! It’s so beautiful and it has a great interior design. There are comfy seats at the roof where you can relax and enjoy the view. The area next to the boat is very calm, but it‘s also very close to the city and nice bars and shopping streets. So a perfect location! The owner of the houseboat is also very friendly. Thank you for the great holidays in Amsterdam!

We had a wonderful stay on this beautiful houseboat, everything we could have needed was available to us. It was a quiet, central area and very easy to walk wherever we needed to go. Checkin and checkout was extremely easy with the owner of the boat.
