We stayed in the van Gogh suite for three nights with our 22-year-old daughter. We had high expectations having read the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The boat is in excellent condition, very clean and spacious for a boat. Yes, the bathroom is small but that is to be expected when on a boat. The bed is comfortable and there is plenty of space for clothes in the low but adequate wardrobes. Our daughter slept like a log on the extra bed. It's good to know though that the extra bed occupies the dining area of the boat so no eating and sleeping at the same time! The location of the boat is of course its unique selling point. The Prinsengracht is beautiful and and the buildings bordering the canal are traditional Dutch gable houses. The boat has a balcony where we spent hours watching pleasure boats pass by while sipping wine. The Prinsen boat is not an hotel, its a self catering alternative - but what an alternative!
