House-Boat B038 ***

In the heart of Amsterdam, this ship is for real lovers of historical cargo sailingships which were widely used in Holland for transport throughout the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth century. It's still in authentic condition, which means ceilings are not too high (1.90 mtr. or 6'2" ft). Built in 1888 as a "Haagsche Aak", she is in fact one of the oldest ships in Amsterdam. She is located right in the middle of the Jordaan area, close to the Anne Frank House and Central Station. There is a parking garage free of charge!

The entrance is by a solid bridge with handlebars leading you on deck and to a hatch-type entrance, but do mind the steep staircase! Inside you'll find a very traditional and cosy interior with the old Captains double bedded family room still fully intact! Next is a bathroom with shower and toilet. Then into the living-room with kitchenette. The portholes in the side and windows in the roof provide plenty of light. There is a double bed at the front of the ship and the couch in the living room can also be turned  into a double bed so that 3 persons can sleep separately. A fast wireless internet connection, cable televesion/video and radio/cd player are also at your disposal. 

Sitting outside on deck you have an excellent view over the canal and its typical canal houses. In the area you will find lots of specialized shops and restaurants as well as the Saterdays farmers market. Your hosts serve breakfast on request. You'll find yourself at home in this beautiful part of Amsterdam and we hope to welcome you for a few days on board the Adriana. Reviews.

Loved the boat! I've been to Amsterdam 6 times and stayed on other boats but this was by far the best trip. The owner went beyond what was expected to make my trip perfect. It will be the only place I'll stay on future trips.

The only way to go!
by Sandra Cilk

We absolutely loved this houseboat! We were welcomed warmly by the owner, even though we were an hour early. We immediately we felt like we had known him for a long time and got caught up in lively conversation. He offered us a glass of wine and left us the bottle with an extra! I have been to Amsterdam 4 other times and this was by far my favorite accommodation. It was a ten minute walk to Central station and just a few minutes to Dam Square. The boat is on the border of the lovely Jordaan neighborhood, which we love as it is away from the "tourist traps". Amazing restaurants and shopping are plentiful and not overcrowded. Having our "own place" was very special. We felt like locals!

I had a 4 night stay on Adriana.
I was met at the boat by Jerone, the affable and friendly owner. He took the time to show me around the boat and explained how things worked on it.
On board he has a wealth of information on things to do whilst in Amsterdam, as well as a complimentary bottle of wine.
For me the location of the boat was perfect, just a 5 minute walk from the fine example of a Dutch brown bar, Cafe t,Smalle. Within 10 minutes you are on Dam square.
The boat sleeps 5, so ideal for families.
I would recommend it b
