Charming Home in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on the boat with two of our grandchildren. It was a wonderful experience. Ben was a great host. He addressed our every need and offered suggestions about activities that would capture everyone's imagination. Sitting on the deck for happy hour and watching the canal traffic was a daily pleasure. The kitchen is well appointed which enabled us to eat breakfast and dinner in. Markets are minutes away. The location was also excellent. We walked everywhere. Centraal Station is a short walk from the houseboat. The trains run frequently to the country side where we visited a collection of windmills one day and a castle the next. We would delighted to stay on the boat again.

The BEST!

  • 5 of 5
Staying on the Anjo is the BEST way to experience Amsterdam. It is perfection. Ben, the proprietor, has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. We visited Amsterdam for 5 nights with our 16 year old son. Staying on the Anjo MADE our holiday perfect. We had our tea in the pilot house with the windows open to hear the church bells; we had afternoon drinks on the patio of the boat while we watched the world float by our canal; we snuggled into our very comfortable beds at night and slept peacefully and coolly (the boat has two air conditioners). Ideally located to walk everywhere, with a great bike rental place (Fredericks) just down the block. A great fancy market around the corner, as well as a more reasonably priced grocery store. Really, this is the way to experience Amsterdam. On a beautifully restored, perfectly situated, most comfortable canal boat.

Perfect for our week in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
Very well situated in a quiet canal in the Jordaan - one of the nicest districts in Amsterdam. Only about 10 minutes' walk from Centraal Station and with a wide range of food and other shops, cafes, restaurants, coffee shops etc. just round the corner.

This quirky conversion of a cargo vessel has spacious, relaxing, & and well-equipped accommodation with art a nouveau/far eastern flavour. The owner Ben was very hospitable - we particularly appreciated finding a selection of supplies waiting for us, so we could have a snack and a drink on arrival without even having to do any shopping.

The wheelhouse is excellent for people-watching on the adjoining bridge, and if you like wildlife you'll find plenty of waterfowl coming to the windows hoping to be fed. We saw coots, ducks, swans & even a grebe.

There's occasional very slight motion from passing boats' wakes, but two of our party are very motion-sickness prone & had no problems at all.

The Old Centre & many of the museums are within walking distance - we didn't use public transport at all. If you're in Amsterdam for some time and like museums it's worth getting a Netherlands Museum Card - you can't buy this online unless you have a Dutch bank account but some of the museums sell it e.g. the Niewe Kirk.

The boat rental cost no more than a mid-price hotel for three of us, and by doing our own catering some of the time we saved money overall. For eating out we can recommend Stout (Haarlemmerstraat 73), The Pancake Bakery (Prinsengracht 191) and the cafe on the top floor of De Bijenkorf department store on Dam Square. Also the cafe at the Van Gogh museum - avoid the the one at the Rijksmuseum which is WAY too small (vast queues even outside mealtimes).

We can highly recommend the "Anjo" and we'd be happy to stay there again.

Very relaxing, roomy place to stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
This canal boat is truly a special dream location to stay in while visiting the Jordaan/Amsterdam. The owner was very easy and pleasant to deal with and he communicates very quickly to inquiries, concerns and questions. The boat was quite roomy, well decorated, clean, had great amenities and a superb location. While there is some noise and a bit of motion of the boat from tour and private boats passing by quite regularly, you get used to it pretty quickly. I get VERY carsick/seasick and didn't have a problem with the boat's motion as it was so mild. It's great fun to sit in the cozy wheel house, open up the curtains and windows and watch the busy buzz of the world go by on the streets and the bridge. This was a true oasis for us during a hectic week of my husband attending the IBC conference. We really appreciated the washer and dryer!! This owner/property is highly recommended.

Best Place to Stay in Amsterdam

We had a perfect stay on the Anjo. Great location on a quieter canal- voted the prettiest in Amsterdam. We won't disagree with that. Ben was very helpful with all the details. We are looking forward to coming back and will certainly stay here again.

Fantastische, unieke plek

  • 5 of 5
9 dagen maakten wij gebruik van de gastvrijheid van Ben, we verbleven op zijn woonboot aan de Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam. Wat een prachtige plek, en wat een mooie accomodatie! wij, gezin met 2 zonen (18 en 16) werden hartelijk ontvangen, en rondgeleid. Daarna was t onze plek, en konden we Ben altijd bellen mocht t nodig zijn. Hij woont op 15 minuten afstand. In de koekast stond water,n biertje, een wijntje, een pak melk, er was koffie ( die van George Clooney) ;)), en er lag fruit op de fruitschaal... Kortom we voelden ons welkom! Het verblijf aan boord van de Anjo was heel erg prettig, ruim, goed uitgerustte keuken, van alle gemakken voorzien. Het sanitair goed, lekkere bedden en niet te vergeten de airco (2). 1 in de woonkamer, en 1 in de slaapkamer. Daar hebben we van genoten bij 35 graden! De ligplek is ideaal, 10 minuten lopen naar t station, boodschappen doen bij de Albert Heijn om de hoek (5min), 's avonds lekker op een terras en lopend terug is ook goed te doen... Lekker wat drinken op t dek of in de stuurhut is erg leuk, in de gracht is, met uitzondering van de nacht, altijd wat te kijken.. Onze vakantie op de Anjo was geweldig, wij komen zeker nog eens terug!
