Houseboat on Amstel river

Boat, Private room - Amsterdam, Netherlands

ID 8504
4.0 (78 reviews)


Beautiful houseboat/ship on the Amstel river, 15 minutes from city center by bike or public transport. Boat is located next to the Martin Luther King park - so it's really quiet as there are no other houses nearby (except for neighboring boats). In the summer you can swim in the Amstel, sit outside on the deck in a Fatboy or relax in a hammock.

There is broadband internet (via wifi) and heating for the colder days.

Some notes:
1. Boats were built the move stuff, not people. Therefore the ceilings are not very high. If you are taller than 1.85m, you will not be able to stand up straight everywhere.
2. Google Streetview: these images were shot during the Parade street festival. This is a 2 weeks festival in August - which is great, fun, but noisy. For the rest of the year, the park is quiet and there are no fences or porta potties either.
3. I can't host more than 2 persons.

Hope to welcome you on board of this magical boat.

Please note that I'm not offering the entire houseboat. It includes the depicted bedroom - and of course you can make use of the living room, bathroom, and the deck. I will be there as well ;-)

    A wonderful place for holidays! The location is suitable for having a city-trip (you can be easiliy and fast in the centrum of Amsterdam) AND for having a relaxed time on a beautiful river. For us, it was the perfect combination.

    Sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man eine Art von Camping mag. Das Boot ist hübsch eingerichtet.

    It is a really nice boat and only 10min from the train station. Nearby you have a small but very nice park where you can enjoy the sun.

    Martin ist ein sehr netter und angenehmer Gastgeber. Bei Fragen und Wünschen war er sofort hilfsbereit. Ansonsten hat man ihn nicht gemerkt. Also gerne wieder!

    Martin is very kind. He helps you out with anything you need to know.
    He welcomed me and a friend with a cup of coffee, helped us out whenever we had a question. You can´t really do any mistake besides of not staying at Martins boat!

    Have a nice staying!

Nettes kleines Studio, ruhige Strasse, Supermarkt in erreichbarer Nähe, dicht genug an der Altstadt, um sie zu Fuß zu erreichen. Für Aufenthalte von mehr als drei Tagen vermisst man ein scharfes Messer zum Brotschneiden. Ansonsten alles prima!

Daniel is a wonderful, thoughtful host. He has loads of information for his guests and seems to be able to help with requests for any information about touring in the Netherlands. He's knowlegable about the art scene, too. The flat was really comfortable and had everything I needed. I used the bike and it was just right for cycling around Amsterdam. It took me about 15 minutes to get to the center of the city on the bike -- when I didn't get lost. Amsterdam is confusing to me, but I don't have a good sense of direction either. Anyway -- Daniel's is a great place to stay in Amsterdam. There are good restaurants close by and Flevopark is a few meters away.
