My sister and I spent 2 nights at the Bed & Breakfast Boat. The houseboat is extremely clean, neat, cosy and comfortable, complete with good wifi, couch, coffee maker, good heater (for winter/early spring), and super nice and friendly host, Rene. The houseboat is spacious, and has its own entrance/exit, so you would have absolute privacy. Rene, the owner, stays in the houseboat area just next-door and is readily available whenever you need help. He provides generous servings of breakfast in a basket placed at the doorstep every morning, which includes fresh breads/buns from the nearby bakery, milk, fruit juice, fruits, yogurts and various spreads. We used the extras from breakfast to make sandwiches to bring out during the day. He was also very very kind to offer to drive us to the Centraal Station with our suitcases, so that we can catch a direct train to the Schiphol airport early in the morning when we checked out.
While the houseboat might not located very centrally, it is situated in a very safe and nice neighbourhood. The nearest tram stop is less than 5 minutes walk away, and brings you to Dam Square and other metro stations, so you can still access everywhere pretty easily.
I cannot emphasize how much we love staying at the houseboat. it was so enjoyable and relaxing to stay in such a cosy and tranquil place, living on the waters and waking to random quacks from the ducks, that we really didn't want to leave the place. It was hard getting out of the house, cos it's so comfortable.
This accommodation was definitely the highlight of my Amsterdam trip, and I highly recommend everyone to come here for an authentic and wonderful Amsterdam vacation.
