We really enjoyed staying on Annika. The great communication with Klaus already was a hint that we made the right choice.
The boat is indeed a unique experience and I can recommend it to anyone looking far an alternative way of enjoying Amsterdam. Of course you shouldn't expect a 5 star hotel - however, it's a spacious place which offers everything needed for a stay to my mind. It's quiet, you got swans, ducks and seagulls as neighbors and 4 people could easily stay there. The location is quiet, central, good for people watching, well connected with busses and trams.
There are shops as well as some good restaurants for eating in walking distance. The rijstafel in Long Pura was very good and Moeders is also well worth trying if you can live with paying a little more for a quality Dutch meal (both are in Rozengracht). Bagels and Beans is nice for breakfast or trying different types of coffee and tea.
Natasha and Klaus were helpful with tips and you will also find a few guidebooks if you're looking for even more inspiration.
A big thank you for the great time we had there and I hope you enjoyed the little gift we left. I'd surely book it again when returning to Amsterdam later.
Staying in a houseboat in Amsterdam is a unique experience and this is what Annika is all about. We were 3 and there is enough space for 4th person. Rooms are pretty spacious and clean.
Communication with Klaus was easy, he provided us with all the info needed to find the boat and Natascha was a great host, giving us all the info to find our way around A'dam.
I'd choose it again!
The Piano Houseboat is fabulous! It's position in Amsterdam is close to absolutely everything! The houseboat itself is super comfortable with everything you could need. Laying on the daybed with two sets of glass windows opening out onto the canal is beautiful, the ducks and swans come right up to you. Natascha was excellent and she cleaned the place supremely well. The Piano is an excellent deal for money in my opinion. We loved it and would stay there again in a flash.
We were warmfully wellcomed by Natasha and the ducks, swans and other birds that come and go in the channel.
The houseboat is fantastic. Comfortable, with a nice view, with restaurants, supermarkets and all you need to see in a walking distance. Natasha gave us all the tips on how to walk around the neighborhood and find everything.
As our flight was at night, Natasha kindly granted us the courtesy of a late checkout.
A perfect 10. We would love to stay there again.
Nos alojamos en la houseboat Nachtschade a primeros de septiembre, con otra pareja de amigos. Nuestra experiencia fue muy buena, a pesar de unos primeros problemas al llegar para contactar con Natascha(que nos tenía que dar la bienvenida pero le fue imposible por problemas familiares). A pesar de todo, resolvió todas nuestras dudas por teléfono y tuvo un bonito detalle antes de marcharnos de Amsterdam. Por todo ello le estamos agradecidos. El entorno privilegiado, a dos pasos del centro de Amsterdam y el ambiente muy agradable. Probablemente repitamos experiencia y, por supuesto, la aconsejamos!
My 11 year old daughter and I spent the last four days of our 9 week European travel adventure on Annika, it was truly the best way to end our holiday, sitting out to eat our meals watching people cruising up and down the canal was lovely, everything was walking distance and conveniently close, supermarket around the corner. Annika was lovely and comfortable and had great character. I would definitely recommend a stay and would definitely book again when in Amsterdam. The lady who met us at the boat was friendly and helpful.
We had a fantastic time staying on the boat in the canals, it was very hard to leave!
Natasha is extremely friendly and very helpful.
Everything was perfectly clean and in working order.
Having tried it once I will definitely come back to Amsterdam and stay on a houseboat! The perfect way to live!!

Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit. Die Annema bietet viel Platz, ist gut ausgestattet und gemütlich. Sie liegt zentral, so dass man nach 5-10 Minuten Fußweg mitten im Stadtzentrum ist. Gegenüber gibt es eine nette kleine Bar, dort kann man bis spät abends draußen sitzen. Die Einrichtung war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Gastgeber waren freundlich und hilfsbereit, auch die Kommunikation im Vorfeld war super. Insgesamt ein paar sehr schöne erholsame Tage auf einem gemütlichen Hausboot mit einem entspannenden Blick auf's Wasser. Sehr zu empfehlen! Vielen Dank.
Great place. Not in the center but everything is at most 10-15 min walk away. By a busy street, but that did not bother me. You are in a city after all. The neighborhood is great. Host was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Place is VERY clean has has everything you need if you want to stay in and cook.. The couch by the window is perfect to sit with a book and unwind after a long day. I would stay here again!
Very kind and sweet couple! I was glad to have them stay at my flat. You are both welcome to stay again. Hope you had a wonderful time!
All the best,
