Very nice houseboat, well located and so unusual place to stay ! Of course, for a luxury place like this one, heating system was more than ok and the other facilities (kitchen, bathroom) were above of our expectations!
I'd recomend this place 100%
This houseboat is in the perfect location in Amsterdam. It has all the necessary extras to make a perfect trip to the city. I would definitely recommend it to any friend.
The experience of staying on this houseboat was second to none. The host gave me instructions for how to get in and everything was as described and even better. Super warm inside even though it was really cold outside. Really comfortable bed and a very warm shower. The "boat" does not move at all, I guess the houseboats in Amsterdam are permanently in place, there is no movement at all.
What I loved about this boat and location, you are literally a 5 minute walk from nieuwmarkt yet the second you get near the neighborhood, it is really quite and peaceful. It is like "getting away" without getting away. I LOVE the area this boat is in. Two great restaurants I fell in love with, and both very close, t' tuinfeest and van beeren. Local Dutch style spots with excellent beer choices and even better food. And if you are into this type of thing, it is Amsterdam after all, the local coffee shop, Solo, is perfect. Not touristy and just a great spot to spend a little time.
All in all a really great spot and I will likely stay here again the next time I am in Amsterdam (which I hope is soon)
Very happy with the stay. The boat was clean and in a super central location. Nice and friendly hosts. Have recomended the boat to all my friends and family.
This was our first time in Amsterdam, and what better way to spend a weekend in the city of canals than to stay in a genuine houseboat. Hester was unable to meet with us, but she provided us with all the information we needed via phone on how to enter the boat. She was helpful with getting us settled in the boat and area.
We were lucky to get a late check-out so that we really could get the most out of our weekend trip. The boat is situated very close to the centre so in just 5-15 minutes we could reach all the places we wanted to see. One day we took a canal tour and were amused by the fact that the canal tour boat passed our houseboat. That tells you just how central it is located. Everything was clean and neat and we were pleased with everything. I can highly recommend this houseboat for those who want to experience Amsterdam from a more local perspective.
Had a fantastic long weekend in Amsterdam staying on Hester's houseboat. The boat was more than big enough for the two of us and kitted out with everything we needed for a short break. It's an easy walk away from Centraal Station in a lovely quiet part of town yet easy to walk or cycle around the whole of the city centre.
Hester was already there when we arrived early so we were able to drop our bags and follow her tips on where to go. No one was staying after us so it was great to be able to leave bags on the boat before heading back to the airport early evening.
I fell in love with the houseboat and will be staying again!
It was complete luxury, we stayed in the height of winter and was worried that it may be cold and that we would have issues with the shower but not at all. The boat was warmer then are flat in leeds and the shower was lovely and powerful. I had four baths whilst I stayed as the tub was so nice and big.
my boyfriend was extremely pleased as the TV had some fab channels, All BBC he was able to watch Match of the day.
The bed was very comfy and and everything was nice and clean.
The kitchen was kitted out with everything that you could need to enjoy some home cooking.
Even if you go in winter take a blanket and make sure you enjoy the view from the boat deck.
The boat is located in a beautiful neighbourhood very peaceful with lots of lovely restaurants. I recommened Me naam naan for thai food and Kilamanjaro for a more unusual african dish.
The hussle and bussle is only a five minute walk away though so you really do get the best of both worlds staying here.
I could go on and on about how amazing this boat and amsterdam is but would recommend you try it for yourself! The boat really did complete my holiday and it made me experience the prettier side to Amsterdam previously missed.
Fantastic experience, the boat was amazing. Access was very easy, the boat was perfectly clean and it even has a bath tube which is not displayed in the pictures. I took my parents and they loved it.
Will definitively book it again.
It is within walking distance from Amsterdam Centraal but mind how much luggage you bring.
Hester was very welcoming and allowed us to drop off our cases when we arrived early.
The boat is in a fantastic position and is very central and only 10 minutes walk from Centraal Railway Station. It is clean, warm and cosy with everything you could need.
We can hardly wait to go back to Amsterdam and will certainly try to stay on Hester's boat again. We will be recommending it to all our friends.
We had a fantastic time visiting Amsterdam. The house boat is great, easily walkable from the station and in a fantastic condition. We had a great time. The surrounding scenery is fantastic and the boat is within walking distance of many museums and historic sites.
