BATEAU BK171, chambre d’invité ****
A bright & spacious room @ Eco-Houseboat 'the Excelsior'.
If you're looking for an authentic stay in Amsterdam, you're here on to the right place! The Excelsior, a huge boat, offers 2 rooms; this room and the BK173. Both rooms are bright with very high ceilings and a breathtaking view over 'the IJ water' in a recently renovated Amsterdam eco-houseboat. The rooms have en suite bathrooms. It's located in the city-centre on the border of the water, nearby the famous 'Jordaan' area.
You can use the main entrance (see pictures), or your own entrance, an hatch with own staircase directly to your room.
The eco-friendly houseboat is ideally located in the Zeeheldenbuurt, at a quiet place in the 'Oude Houthaven'. It has stunning views over the IJ water and Amsterdam North and is within walking distance of the city centre (8 min).
Staying on this boat will even make a contribution to the environment. By heating through a sustainable water heat pump, the houseboat uses 5x less energy, emits no CO² and does not burn fossil fuels.
The 40 sqm private room is equipped with everything you need. It has a comfy king size bed (180 x 200) with crisp, white sheets and window ceilings above your head to gaze at the stars. The ensuite bathroom has a bath with stunning view over the harbour, a separate shower and luxurious bathroom amenities from Marie-Stella-Maris. There is a separate toilet.
Start your day with a Nespresso in the relaxing sofa and settle down in your life at sea!
