Simone's charming houseboat gave us the perfect conclusion to our time in the Netherlands. It's such a romantic and cosy space! We loved watching boats passing and light shimmering on the water from the comfort of our own dinner table. The boat is old but that's what gives it its rustic, beautiful charm. The location is unbeatable - steps from all the best that the neighborhood has to offer. Simone is a delightful host - helpful and generous. I hope I will have the good fortune of meeting lovely Simone and her boat again one day!
Simone is so lovely and so helpful and the houseboat is absolutely delightful. We loved every second of staying there. The most perfect way to celebrate a 60th birthday
Simone was a wonderful host and very accommodating. Her house boat was beautiful, full of personality in a wonderful location to explore Amsterdam. I would definitely recommend and stay again :)
We had a very relaxing stay on Simone's boat this Easter. It was based in a lovely part of Amsterdam within easy reach of the train station, 9 streets and the parks etc. Simone was very friendly and gave us an explanation of how everything worked and also the best places to go before leaving us to it. The boat itself was characterful and very unique. The bed was comfy and the facilities were good- the boat was equipped with everything we needed. The street to the North had plenty to offer with lovely bakeries and shops within 2 minutes walk. I would recommend hiring a bike and taking a free ferry across the water to explore the Waterland for a day. Beautiful! A lovely holiday!
Simone was very welcoming and provided us with a map and recommendations which we found very useful. She also left some wine and chocolates which was a kind gesture.
The atmosphere on the boat is really rustic and has its own charm. We thought the decorations were really nice. The bed was very comfortable which was certainly a positive after lots of sightseeing! The heater (a gas heater) was also extremely effective at keeping the whole boat warm.
The location was fantastic, within easy reach of Amsterdam Centraal and a multitude of public transport links. Furthermore, it is within easy reach of the Jordaan area of Amsterdam which provides a slightly more authentic feel to Amsterdam.
We found the bathroom/toilet facility on the houseboat rather basic. The toilet is slightly inaccessible given that there is little room for movement, and it is on a raised platform given that the houseboat does not have sewerage. The shower does take a while to drain as well, and is slightly weak. However, we found a way of working round these issues and enjoyed our stay.
Unfortunately we had an incident with the key/lock. On our first night, the key broke in the lock, which meant that we had to find alternative accommodation for that night. However Simone was very helpful in calling a locksmith and arranging for repairs the next morning. She was very kind in offering a refund for that night's stay.
Overall we had a fantastic time and we would like to thank Simone for everything.
thanks for your feedback! I changed the lock to a more familiar system so that problem is solved now and will not happen again. Thanks for staying with me and your patience! All the best, gr Simone
Living in the boat has been one of the most beautiful experience i had in my life! You really feel at home and in such a cozy and warm nest! I loved it and I also loved the footprint that simone has left in it! She has been great to welcome us and to let us know everything about what to do and to see around! A magic experience, i really recommend it!
Abbiamo trascorso tre giorni davvero piacevoli a bordo della barca di Simone, che è esattamente come appare nelle fotografie: essenziale ma molto molto charmant. Ad aspettarci c'era Myrthe un amica di Simone molto gentile e disponibile che ci ha accolto in maniera cordiale. La posizione della barca è ottima per girare la città, comoda rispetto alla Stazione e nel cuore del Jordaan, uno dei quartieri più piacevoli di Amsterdam. Esperienza assolutamente da raccomandare.

Thank you Simone for that beautiful weekend in Amsterdam. The houseboat is really lovely furnished and on a perfect spot of Amsterdam. Simone was really helpful, when we had some problems with the key at night, thanks. The shower and toilet is a little bit "basic", but that's no problem for a few days.
No tenemos ninguna duda en recomendar este precioso barco , hemos tenido una estancia perfecta , la experiencia ha sido muy positiva.
Simone was a fantastic host,and her houseboat is such a charming way to experience Amsterdam. Located in a hip,and well appointed neighborhood, it served as the perfect base camp for exploring the many shops, restaurants and farmers market; all within a short distance.
The deco of the boat was delightfully wabisabi with hardwood floors and rustic features throughout.
At six foot two inches tall,there were a few spots on the boat that I had to be mindful of as to not hit my head, but the bed was cozy, couch was perfect for curling up to read and listen to music.
Wild ducks an geese swam next to the boat and would come to say hello when the window was open.
Simone was a great communicator through the entire process,and welcomed me to the boat, explained the little bits like the gas stove and water pump for the shower and even left a bottle of wine and chocolate out as a welcome gift.
At one point the neighborhood lost power and she talked me through tripping the breakers on the street to regain power,and even refunded me some money for the trouble.
Definitely worth a visit if you want an alternative to tourist hotels or local hostels, for a price that can't be beat. Thanks Simone !
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.
