A great way to explore Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay on the house boat. Arjen made us feel very welcome, telling us the best places to go in Amsterdam and taking us on a lovely cruise through the canals. All three of us had been to the city before, staying in hotels and apartments, but staying on the house boat was the best way to experience Amsterdam.

The boat is perfectly located; a 5 minute walk brought us to the city centre and a supermarket, a ten minute walk to the train station. We had a great time sitting on the deck eating breakfast in the sun, we will definitely be back!

Sehr Zentral gelegen

  • 3 of 5

Das Hausboot liegt sehr zentral und ist vom Hauptbahnhof sehr gut und schnell zu erreichen.

Allerdings haben wir uns anhand der Bilder mehr erhofft und den Zustand des Bootes besser eingeschätzt als es letztendlich war.

Wir waren von Donnerstag bis Sonntag da gottseidank hatten wir super Wetter und haben so wenig Zeit wie möglich auf dem Boot verbracht.

Wir würden das Boot nicht weiter empfehlen da das Preis / Leistungsverhältnis nicht gerechtfertigt ist !

amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Arjen, the owner, greeted us with a glass of wine, a huge smile and many tips about the house, neighbourhood, nearby supermarkets and so on. The boathouse is close to the train station and the city center, 10 minutes walking, quite easy to find and in a peaceful area. The boathouse is cozy, warm, well equipped, with nice furniture, very clean, we felt like we were at home. We would't have asked for more! thank you Arjen

SUPER BOOT,SUPER LAGE!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ich war mit meiner Tochter und unseren beiden Hunden auf diesem schönem Hausboot. Wir hatten reichlich Platz, alles war sauber. Der Vermieter Arijen ist sehr hilfsbereit und sehr nett, hat uns sogar auf eine Grachtenfahrt mit seinem Boot mitgenommen, es war ein traumhaft schöner Tag. Die Lage des Bootes ist perfekt, man kann alles gut zu Fuß oder mit Fahrrad erreichen, Auto muss man außerhalb im P+R parken, kostet 8 Euro/Tag. Hunde sind herzlich willkommen. Es gibt in der Nähe einen schönen Hundeplatz/Hundeinsel, wo die Hunde frei toben können, das war super. Mit direktem Blick auf das Wasser und kleinem Strand:-) Fahrradverleih in der Nähe, haben Amsterdam mit dem Fahrrad erkundet. Amsterdam ist eine wunderschöne Stadt, wir waren sehr begeistert und werden dieses, spätestens nächstes Jahr wieder kommen. DANKE für ALLES! Birgit und Antonia aus Kiel

Gute Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Top Unterkunft im Zentrum von Amsterdam, der Besitzer des Hausbootes Arijen ist der beste Typ in Amsterdam, hat man ein Problem kümmert er sich darum. Die Unterkunkft ist wie auf den Bildern und völlig ausreichend um Amsterdam zu erkunden.

Perfekte Lage für Städtetour

  • 1 of 5

Die Ambulant liegt unweit einer Einkaufsstrasse (grosser Supermarkt) sehr ruhig am Westerdok. Der Bahnhof ist ganz in der Nähe. Beim Umbau des Bootes wurde der ursprüngliche Charme bewahrt. Wir, eine Familie mit zwei älteren Kindern, hatten ausreichend Platz und haben den Aufenthalt an Bord sehr genossen. Von der kleinen Terrasse am Bug des Bootes konnte man wunderbar die vielen Boote auf ihren Rundtouren beobachten.
