Beautiful houseboat located at a quiet and peaceful location in the heart of Amsterdam. There is no better way to stay in Amsterdam than on a typical Amsterdam houseboat right on the canals. Lovely, calm and relaxed place to return to after a long day of sight seeing. Cosy and warm place to spend christmas and new years eve. The houseboat is located next to the vibrant Jordaan area with its nice cafes, good restaurants, plenty of shops and special boutiques. 5 minute walking distance from Anne Frankhouse and the Dam square. 10 minute walk from the Central Station. 15 minute walk from the Leidsche square, Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark and Van Gogh Museum.
The houseboat is light and spacious. Wi-fi, cable tv, fireplace, central heating , lounge area, kitchen with high-quality Smeg equipment (6-burner stove, large oven, microwave, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine). Spacious bedroom with waterbed. Adjacent bathroom with separate shower and bathtub. Other amenities: central heating, washing machine, tumble dryer, iron. On the rooftop is a big terrace with a bench (in summer).

Lieke & Hugo weren't there, but they organized everything and there was no Problem for the Check in or check out.
The Location ist great, the spot is perfect and the boat is so charming we just loved it!
I had the opportunity to stay 6 nights at Hugo's and Lieke's boat.
It has a central location, only 10 mins walking to the Dam Square or the Central Station. This area is also pretty quiet area. On the boat there is a water bed, which contributed positively to the whole boat experience. The internet connection was pretty good and I was able to work from there without interruptions. It has a nice sofa in the living room and TV. Also the living room is connected with the kitchen that has everything you if you want to cook for yourself.
I would definitively recommend the boat as it was fun, central and very comfortable.
We had a wonderful weekend on the houseboat of Hugo & Lieke. It´s modern but still very cosy. It´s right in the center of Amsterdam and very quiet at the same time. Our welcome was very warm and they handled our arrival & departure extremly flexible. We can absolutely recommend this houseboat.
Very welcoming hosts. Fantastic neighbourhood -- close to everything and yet quiet. Living on a boat a unique experience.
Hi Hugo & Lieke ! Thanks for your kindness. The decoration and the furnitures are very tasty. The place on Jourdan district is perfect. I will come back and recommand. Best regards.
My Husband and I stayed on Hugo & Lieke's houseboat for 2 nights in August 2014. It had a lovely homely feel. It had everything we needed and was in a great location, very close to the centre with easy access to the restaurants, trams and tour boats. We would highly recommend this houseboat to anyone wanting a nice comfortable romantic stay in Amsterdam.
