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!

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 !

un séjour sympa à Amsterdam à 4 copines
by Anne Marchal godart

Très bon accueil. Ambiance sympa, un peu vintage. La SDB pourrait probablement être améliorée et rendue plus confortable (le lavabo est trop haut!). Le bateau est bien situé, pas loin de tout et au calme. J'ai particulièrement apprécié la petite chambre en-dessous de la cabine du capitaine!

Canal living
by Neil Clarke

We arrived about 11.30hrs instead of the appointed 15.00hrs check in time & I called the owner & within 5 minutes he'd sent a very helpful Rob to allow us to start our stay early. It's a great living space & although there was snow on the ground, it was super warm. Our boys of 16 & 14 yrs were very happy with the arrangement of the accommodation having a large cabin with bath & separate w.c. aft that was totally separate. It would not suit a family with small children, although if there are only four in the family there is a perfectly adequate pull out sofa/ double bed in the lounge. The location was fantastic for us with a "local" café/ bar about 30yrds away & it was only a short walk to a supermarket, a restaurant filled street (Utechtsestraat) &
Rembrandt Sq. The city, the weather, the warmth of the Dutch people & not least the standard & location of the barge all made this, a city break to remember.
