amsterdam houseboats rentals House-Boat Hotel Amsterdam

House-Boat B084 ***

Without any doubt this is the best location in Amsterdam for a houseboat: in the heart of the city on the sunny side of the Amstel River next to the ‘Skinny Bridge’ and the Royal theater Carré. The 'Skinny Bridge Boat' has completely been refurnished in 2012 giving guests the best facilities possible while keeping the authentic characteristics of the boat. Pure Vintage! Make yourself a coffee from fresh beans, relax on the Italian design couch, feel well rested after a night on the Eastborn boxspring, but most of all enjoy the fantastic view this place in Amsterdam offers. On several places you can sit outside on the deck, enjoy breakfast and the view on the lively Amstel.  

This houseboat is very spacious with two bedrooms, two bathrooms (1 large one with both a bath and a shower) two toilets and a large living room with sleeping couch. It is accessible by a private bridge. A small staircase brings you into the boat, a small hallway and then the large living room with open plan kitchen. The modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay: fridge, stove, microwave/oven, toaster, juice maker, water cooker, coffee machine etc. There is a bar table in front of the kitchen for the quick breakfast, a dining table and a comfortable sitting area. The couch can be easily transformed into a queen size quality bed. There is a large flatscreen television with movies on demand, wifi internet connection and radio/cd-player. Most of all guests appreciate the cozy atmosphere this boat has.

One of the bedrooms is located in the ol' captains den making it a very charming room. Walking outside over the gangway you reach this romantic suite. After having taken a bath in the classical bathtub you can go upstairs for a great view (with a cup of coffee or tea) from the place where the captain used to steer the boat. 

The 'Skinny Bridge Boat' is the answer to an exclusive stay in Amsterdam. Even though it is situated in the heart of the city were the river is lively during the day, the nights are very quite. Only on a few occasions there are exceptions: on Queensday, during the Gay Parade (which passes in front of the boat) and when on May 5th, a part of the Amstel River changes into a podium for the Queen and visitors for an open air concert: Be quick if you want a free ticket on the first row!

It is always rented out to one group of persons at a time (max. 6 persons) ensuring your privacy during your stay. Reviews!

Wundervolles Wohnschiff in Top-Lage
by Jan Belde

Vier Tage Amsterdam Ende Mai, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Wohnschiff bittet viel Wohnfläche für eine vierköpfige Familie, ist super ausgestattet und die Koje des Kapitäns im Heck des Schiffes ist ein großes Abendteuer für die Kinder.
Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Toller Aufenthalt über den Königstag 2017
by Michael Riehl

Das Boot liegt sehr zentral (Ecke Amstel/Prinsengracht). Rundherum ist alles nah verfügbar (Supermarkt, U-Bahn, Kneipen, Restaurants). Der Allgemeinzustand des Bootes erweckt auf den Fotos einen falschen Eindruck. Von der doch sehr hohen Miete müsste der Eigentümer mal ein paar Euros in das Boot stecken. Aber dennoch würde ich das Boot weiterempfehlen.

Agréable séjour
by bertrand cochet

Bon accueil de Rob .. bonnes explications et bonnes info....
Location de vélos TRES proche à pied ...derrière opéra ! Quartier calme , un Spar à côté... pont superbe à côté de la péniche illuminé le soir !
Terrasse très agréable avec un âtre à gaz ... les chambres sont séparées dont une se trouve à côté de l'espace de vie et la 2nde est accessible par l extérieur par le pont du capitaine ! Les literies sont bonnes et chacun à sa propre salle de bains ( baignoire à l ancienne dans la chambre du capitaine ) .. cette dernière chambre peut être froide l hiver mais un chauffage d appoint supplémentaire permet de compenser ce léger défaut ... à recommander pour les couples qui souhaitent une bonne intimité avec chacun son espace !
