The serive is good and the boats were decent sized. The only thing that could have been better is the speed of the boats, other than that it's perfect!

The staff is very nice and arranging (we called because we were late for our rental time and the staff agreed to postpone our rental without any problem) The place is a bit far from the main canals, though.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
