In the centre of Amsterdam, on the river Amstel, is our B&B Boat located. With all facilities aboard an a fabulous view from "Magere Brug" till "Munttoren". All attractions within 15 minutes walking. See you on board!
Would you like to spend the night in an adventurous way?
Then come aboard our Bed & Breakfast boat.
The boat is moored next to the city hall near the Blauw Bridge on the Amstel. Rembrandt Square and Waterloo Square are only three minutes away.
The ship has got all kinds of facilities: a double bed, shower and bathtub, music and television are all at your disposal.
All places of interest in the city are very near, only fifteen minutes by foot at the most!
The boat is situated in walking distance of Carré, Paradiso, all big museums, Rembrandt Square, the Heritage and the Albert Cuyp market. There is a private entrance via the houseboat of the owner. The private terrace has a view over the most beautiful part of the Amstel (from the “Magere Brug” to “the Munt”).
From april 1st 2015, my new B & B boat will be next to my houseboat. The boat has two double beds in different rooms, and a place for a 5th person.
Interaction with Guests
We will try to be at the boat to welcome you aboard and make you feel comfortable.
Other Things to Note
There is the possebility to make breakfast. The costs are 12,50 Euro per person per day. Also different places for a nice breakfast are inb the area.
Wow, what a great experience. The location is fantastic and we had a wonderful time. Daan and family were very hospitable. To celebrate we were on their new boat we all shared an Amstel on the Amstel (with a wine and glass of milk). Highly recommend this venue.
Pleasant host and great location, just beside the Opera House on the Amstel and 2 minutes walk from the Waterlooplein Metro. Can actually get to the boat from Central Station on the Metro as long as you don't have a huge amount of luggage. Great for the younger ones who enjoy the novelty of being on a boat. Host lives on adjacent boat, which is handy if things go wrong.
Minor complaints - could have done with a working fridge (which was fixed after a couple of days) and curtains at the rear, especially when the boat was just beside a bridge full of passers-by during the day. Also heating packed in, but fortunately only on the last night. Host will probably have these fixed by now. Remember that the shower works, but water is warm for only two minutes. So have to be quick. Not a complaint but just a note to those not used to showers on boats.
Daan is the perfect friendly host, the boat is pretty new and with all the functionality needed, the location is great, at the junction of Amstel and The ring of central canals. Around many ethnic food, supermarket, metro and tram.
My cousin and I were last guests to stay on Daan's old boat so our comments on that are irrelevant on that front. But we had a wonderful time and Daan was an excellent host. He toasted our visit with a glass of wine and was always available as he lives next door. The location is very nice, on the quiet side of the canal near the ballet but close to the tram, food, and drink. We walked everywhere. It is a lovely spot to stay while in Amsterdam, from the view from boat window of hungry swans looking for a handout to the quick walk to Rembrandt's house. I highly recommend Daan as a host.
Thank you very. It was e very nice staying. :-) Maybe we come again for an other trip!
We really, really enjoyed staying on Daan's boat in Amsterdam - it has an incredible central location, everything you could possibly need/expect from a houseboat, and Daan is a wonderfully hospitable and welcoming host. Particular highlights include the amazing breakfast he made us on both days we were there, the view of the canal from the windows on the boat, and the sheer novelty that we were staying on a boat in Amsterdam! Why would anyone want to stay in a hotel?! As far as hosts go, Daan was fantastic and we will definitely consider staying on one of his boats again in the future.
Weer een geweldig weekend gehad op Daan zijn bootje! Alles was o.k. Benieuwd naar zijn nieuwe boot,volgend jaar komen we weer!!
