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. And since the best way to discover Amsterdam is from the waterside: just take the motorboat (for a surcharge) that is moored near the houseboat for a spin in the city and enjoy your own private canal cruise anytime you like (motorboat available from May till October). 

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!

Luxury camping
by Dirk Blaesing

After finally finding the boat we were received by nobody but a damaged garbage bag right in front of the entrance door.
When Paul arrived he apologized politely, but the first impression was horrible. You have to be a sportive and less exigent guest, climbing leddars or low doors should not be a problem for you. To use the rather complicated microwave oven without a written manual might be a special task. And wifi is only available in the main room, not in the front bedroom.
Paul wanted to install a booster for that area but forgot about it.
This is a very original, rustic way to stay in a strategically quite good location of Amsterdam, but never a correct and justified benefit for the high cost. No cleaning or any other room service during the stay compares this "hotel" more to luxury camping.
