What an experience! Probably going to be one of my favorite memories on our Europe trip. This boathouse is sooooooo cooooool! Simone was responsive and helpful from the start. The location was amazing, so close to the train station. Lots of cool places to go all within a block. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an unforgettable time in Amsterdam. Only problem is that I want to live on a houseboat now =)
If you're thinking about renting this place, just do it!
This little house home was even better than we thought it would be. Simone was a helpful and generous host. The location could not have met our needs better. It does need a considerate renter as the experience is authentic, making it even more precious. We have already shared photos and experiences with other travellers and have no doubt that it won't be as easy to book the next time we make it to Amsterdam. Thanks so much Simone, it was gorgeous.
Simone's houseboat was exactly how described- simple and sweet. Perfect for a romantic get-away for two. She was kind to leave wine, chocolate, and other welcoming goodies for us. Her friend Sophie checked us in and showed us around the boat. She also gave us some tips on the area. We felt safe in the neighborhood. The location was easily accessible to everything we wanted to see and do. Would definitely return!
Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique sur cette adorable péniche! Le quartier et l'emplacement idéal, l'amie de Simone qui nous a gentiment accueillis, la bouteille de vin sur la table à notre attention tout était parfait. Nous nous sommes très vite sentis comme chez nous et nous ne voulions plus repartir. Merci!
What a charming boat! Great location with lots of great shops and cafes without being in the heart of tourism. Would defiantly come back to stay at Simone's!
We had a wonderful stay on Simone's boat - a truly unique experience. The location couldn't be better, central Amsterdam with everything you could want a short walk or cycle away. The boat has everything you could need in a traditional (i.e basic) way, and is more than comfortable despite not being luxurious. We had many happy afternoons sitting on deck in the sun waving to the tourist boats passing - way better than TV! Simone's contact with us was great, despite her being away herself when we arrived (thanks to Sophie for the great welcome and for explaining everything to us).
The boat is perfect for two people, and we shall certainly be back! We recommend Cafe Daalder (very short walk) if you're splashing out - 7 course taster menu is superb. Good bike hire from frederics just up the road. Also recommend the Museum of Prostitution which is both educational and entertaining!
Also - if you really need it (I did try and take a week off work!) the private onboard wifi is excellent.
Thanks also for the welcome wine and chocolate, Simone! We put the former in the fridge for you but ate the latter!
Staying at Simone's lovely houseboat was a wonderful experience. It's location is perfect and the neighbourhood is nice.
Simone's friend checked us in and she was very friendly and showed us everything we needed. We would definitely stay at her houseboat again if we came back to Amsterdam.

Very quaint & romantic house boat. Simone was the best host ever! Very friendly and inviting. Was on time and available and provided help for navigation and basic amenities.
This is a great place and experience! We had a great time and we really enjoyed this different type of home. The boat is so charming!
Communication with Simone is easy, and she is responding quickly.
She is welcoming and helpful, and the boat has a personal touch that makes it very cosy. So happy we went for this experience and I would love to go again!
The boat has even a small outdoor area where you can enjoy the sun and the view, and look at all the tourist passing by - it makes you feel local in a good way! Thank you for keeping the boat up and running, Simone and to share it with the rest of the world.
Simone and Alex were lovely guests. Very friendly and engaged,
tidy and quiet! They are welcome back any time!
Cela s'est très bien passé avec Simone et Alex. Ils étaient absolument charmants. Et ont tout laissé impeccable en partant. Nous avons échangé beaucoup de choses. J'ai été très heureuse de les avoir ici. Et j'espère qu'ils reviendront ..
Merci Sylvie! We will come back! :-)
Fine and decent guests, easy in communication.
The room was left in perfectly decent condition.
Thanks for choosing Bed and Breakfast Rotterdam Noord.
You are welcome anytime!
Simone and Alex are a very lovely couple. They are wonderful, super fun, with very interesting lives; it was great getting to know them. We'd welcome them in our home anytime!
Simone was een vriendelijke, blije bezoeker die wij graag in onze vakantie woning te gast hadden.
