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.

Belle Adriana, un bijou dans un super quartier d'Amsterdam!
by France

Quelle expérience d'avoir pu séjourner à bord de l'Adriana!
La proximité avec les principaux lieux à visiter, des restos, snacks ou des excursions à vélo, le marché bio ou les antiquités, la vie sur le Keizergracht est étonnante. Jeroen est très sympa et le bateau est superbement aménagé pour le confort et la propreté. Super séjour avec un peu de soleil malgré tout!

Absolutely Amazing!!!!!
by Mark Brown

Our recent stay on houseboat B038 was arguably the best vacation experience we have ever had!! The boat is quaint, clean, and super comfortable!! Jeroen Elsen, the owner of the boat, could not have been more accommodating, kind, and helpful! The boat came equipped with all that we needed to make meals, relax, sleep in comfort, and probably best of all, relax!! Sitting on the deck and watching the boats cruise by was truly a wonderful experience! The neighborhood is also wonderful, clean, quiet, with a bakery, many shops, and a market nearby! If you are planning a trip to Amsterdam and are hesitant about choosing a houseboat vs. a hotel, stay in B038 and you won't ever regret it!! The experience of a lifetime!! Thank you Jeroen!!

Besuch im Mai
by Kerstin Rotard

Super Aufenthalt, einem extrem netter, entspannter Eigentümer. Alles an Board, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht. Boot liegt sehr zentrumsnah und trotzdem wunderbar ruhig.
