Old Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Houseboat located on one of the city’s largest canals

This houseboat is situated in the centre of Amsterdam on the famous canal called the Single. Staying in this houseboat is ideal for adventurous families or a group of friends. Don’t expect too much luxury or space, but everything you need for a real Amsterdam experience is provided by this houseboat.

On the first hand its special for its location. In this boat you have a fantastic view on the romantic canal with its small bridges and warehouses.

This houseboat is suitable for a maximum of six guests and consists out of four areas. The main entrance leads you by a small stair (watch out) to a brightly decorated room where you can find two bunk beds. These two bunk beds provide sleeping accommodation for four guests. This area also contains a gas heater and a small corner with a desk and a computer.

On the right hand of the entrance you will find the kitchen with everything you need to make your crew a nice meal. Also, it contains a washing machine and dryer.

In the basic bathroom you will find a toilet and shower.

The second bedroom expresses (in contrast to the ‘bunkbedarea’) a more serene atmosphere. Its light because of its big roof window and contains a double bed and a wooden table with two chairs. The second bedroom also has its own main entrance. This might be handy. For example, you don’t need to disturb your crewmembers or children at the middle of the night.

Outside you can find a small terrace with barbecue, table, chairs and a fabulous view over the canal.

PECULIAR ESTANCIA

  • 4 of 5
La estancia en el barco de Cerberus, ha sido cuánto menos peculiar, pero recomendable si lo que buscas es estar cerca del centro y empaparte de la forma de vida de Amsterdam. El barco estaba a pocos metros del barrio rojo y zona de bares y coffee shops, pero no era un barrio peligroso ni mucho menos, de hecho la calle del barco era bastante tranquila y no había problemas de ruido, pero no tenías que desplazarte mucho si lo que buscabas era fiesta y ambiente. Está muy muy cerca de la estación central, lo cual resulta una ventaja para los turistas que llegan allí con maletas. También a unos diez minutos y en la misma calle que el barco, se encuentra el mercado de las flores, también recomendable si quereis comprar tulipanes, aunque sólo dar un paseo entre todos los puestos de flores, ya merece la pena. Hay bastantes lugares cerca para comer y cenar, lo que supone una comodidad añadida, a pesar de que el barco tiene una pequeña cocina, que sirve para salir del paso.
La estancia era cómoda, dos literas con sábanas limpias y un ordenador con internet a nuestra disposición, dónde dejamos instalado el spotify para futuros inquilinos. La decoración era super colorida, y había un futbolín transformable en mesa. Todo el espacio miuy optimizado, la verdad. El baño y la cocina, eran algo pequeños, limitación propia de cualquier barco, me imagino, y compartidas con el propietario, aunque a penas coincidimos con él. La verdad es que no es muy recomendable para personas mayores o con movilidad reducida. Y para los que tengan miedo de vivir en un canal, tranquilos, prácticamente no se nota el movimiento, ya que está bien amarrado y no es tan fácil como parece caerse al agua. Cuándo nos marchamos, estaba en proceso de reforma (nueva pintura, nuevo frigorífico...). Nosotros estuvimos cuatro personas y cuatro noches, y la verdad es que nos organizamos bastante bien (a pesar de que el espacio era limitado para tanto equipaje), y lo consideramos una experiencia peculiar que recordaremos durante mucho tiempo.

You are just a two-minute walk away from the Central Station. Also the famous Dam Square is very close by. Here you can find the well known shopping streets like the Kalverstreet and Nieuwendijk.

In your neighbourhood, you can find a lot of vintage stores, coffeehouses, coffeeshops, and various restaurants that serve food until late at night.

But also, you are just a minute away from Dam Square, where you can find the famous shopping street called the Kalverstreet. Here you can find more well-known stores and warehouses.

Further more you are surrounded by beautiful and romantic area’s, such as the canals, the old Jordaan and entertainment squares wich provide you a swell nightlife like the Leidsesquare and Rembrandsquare, but also the illustrious Red Light District is very nearby.
Visiting other famous areas in and around the centre of Amsterdam should not be too much of a problem. Due to the city’s compact nature spots like the Museum, Rembrandt and Leidse square, as is the Vondelpark, are just a twenty minute walk away. 
If you are not that fond of walking public transport is provided all around this location. For instance you are just a couple of meters away from the tram station and furthermore you’re close to the Central Station where public transport can easily lead you to different areas of the city.
