La casa esta muy bonita y tiene de todo. Esta muy bien ubicada y Marcel es muy amable. Recomendable 100%
We stayed for 3 nights at the loftboat of Marcel and we really enjoyed our stay! It was a wonderful new experience and we can highly recommend it! You can reach everything by foot, the city centre and the Erasmusbridge are close as well and there is a grocery store right around the corner! Marcel was very kind and helped us finding the boat because we had some difficulties with our map!
We enjoyed our stay on board the Mizar. It's a unique place to stay, and the location is fantastic, very central, within easy walking distance of most of the city.
Would be perfect for two – we were a trio and found the space a little smaller than expected. The third guest had to sleep on a fold-out bed, either in the living room (where there are no curtains / blinds) or in the corridor (where the lights are activated by a motion-sensor, and you're right next to the bathroom). Unfortunately our third guest didn't get a great night's sleep during our stay.
We had been expecting to have a whole boat to ourselves (based on the description / photos) but it turns out the boat contains two holiday apartments, of which we were renting the smaller half.
Small niggles aside, the Mizar was clean and nicely furnished, with good wifi, a good shower, and a lovely little deck that gets lots of sunshine. Marcel was a friendly host, and check-in / -out was very easy.
Marcel met with my daughter who lives in Rotterdam and works on Vessel11 opposite - she was given the keys and an explanation of how everything on the houseboat worked. All very easy. We arrived as the sun shone and relaxed on deck with a few Heineken's from the local Spa. The Houseboat was clean and tidy, surprisingly spacious and our children were extremely excited by the new experience. Arabella loves the piano so that was an added extra and made us all feel very much at home! We have not used Airbnb before so wondered if it would have been possible to pre-order some basics, milk bread etc which would have saved the trip to the Spa but of course we added some nice extras because we made the trip ourselves - and it was very close. Had we been arriving late or when the shops had been closed then a small arrival hamper would have been good. The Houseboat was so conveniently located for exploring the city, the tram stop at Beure was very close by and the River Taxi good as well although a bit expensive. We had a great time and will look forward to staying again!
Marcel was great, very punctual and showed us where everything was.
Met zeven meiden verbleven we een weekend op de Mizar. Een bijzondere ervaring! De knusse woonkamer is een prima gelegenheid om gezellig bij te kletsen. Daarnaast ligt de Mizar zeer centraal in Rotterdam en is het daarmee een prima uitvalsbasis voor leuke activiteiten in de omgeving. Ondanks de centrale ligging is het zeer rustig aan boord. Goed geslapen in de fijne slaapkamers. Badkamer en keuken ook prima in orde. Marcel is daarnaast een keurige gastheer die ons direct van dienst was toen er zich iets voor deed. De Mizar is zeker een aanrader!
We hebben het geweldig gehad op de Mizar! Een prachtig verblijf mooi centraal gelegen in het centrum van Rotterdam. Marcel heeft ons vriendelijk ontvangen.
Great place - Marcel was very flexible and attentive. Everything was well taken care of and we had no issues whatsoever.
Great location, although it was hard to leave the amazing private terrace of the boathouse sometimes
Marcel and the Mizar are both fabulous. Marcel was the perfect host and the Mizar is located just blocks from everything fun in Rotterdam. But its also very quiet in the morning for s cup of espresso on deck. As long as my daughter and her family live in Rotterdam we will stay on the Mizar and with Marcel.
We hebben een weekend op de loftboot doorgebracht. Een heel comfortabele plek met een fantastische ligging midden in de stad. De watertaxi is vlakbij en binnen 5 minuten ben je lopend op het Witte de Withkwartier of in het (winkel)centrum. Comfortabele bedden en erg sfeervol!
