When staying in a houseboat or apartment, you will experience what it feels like to live among the locals, the ultimate Amsterdam feeling. You can prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner yourself whenever it suits you, because most houseboats and apartments have well-equipped kitchens, thus making your stay a lot cheaper compared to a hotel. You will sleep much better and unlike traditional hotels till noon, as you will not be disturbed by noises of cleaning activities. You are also able to receive business relations in a beautiful scenery. Most houseboats and apartments offer fast internet connections, enabling you to work productively when needed. We recommend to not only look for houseboats and apartments in the centre. Amsterdam has several other areas that are equally interesting, just in a different way. Have a wonderful stay!
