Overview

About the property

B & B Boat canals Jordaan Amsterdam near Anne Frank Museum

In 2009, we built our own houseboat, a dream That came true. To wake up in the morning with the reflection of the sunlight on the surface of the water and hear the water birds singing is a unique way to live Within the city. To share with you the experience and feeling of living on a houseboat in the canals of Amsterdam, we created a stylish and comfortable bed and breakfast on our houseboat. We are very proud of the result and would like to welcome you on our BedonBoard.

The BedonBoard is a beautiful light room with adjacent private bathroom in a new, spacious and modern houseboat. The room is located on a quiet walkway near the Westerpark and at 500 meters from the Jordan River.

The room has a comfortable king-size bed (1. 80 x 2. 10), a modern bathroom with private toilet, shower. There is a fridge, a water boiler and a coffee maker. You can ook sit outside the B & B on the terrace at the entrance.

BedonBoard is located 500 meters from the heart of the Jordan, in the historic center of Amsterdam. The Jordaan is an area full of small restaurants, terraces, fun shops alternating with beautiful canals, small streets and with a variety of wonderful historic buildings. The Jordan borders on the well-known shopping area the Nine Little Streets (literally: Nine Little Streets) were you can find many usefull small shops and cozy restaurants.

Within walking distance you will find highlights like the Anne Frank House, the Wester Tower, the Dam Square, the Royal Palace and the Amsterdam Historic Museum. BedonBoard is easily reachable by car and public transport (see below under "Accessibility"), but once you're here, the Easiest Means of transportation is by bicycle (see tab "Bicycle rental").

The BedonBoard is a 10 minutes walk from the nicest shopping street in Amsterdam (and Awarded second best shopping street of the Netherlands, 2011): Haarlemmerdijk and about 15 minutes from Central Station or the Leidseplein.

It is a mere 500 meters walk to the beautiful North, and recently fully renovated Westerpark, also known as the "Culture Park" or Amsterdam. In Westerpark you will find a classic Victorian style park section, a large center section for cultural events and a more rugged part with trails for walkers or runners. Centrally located in the park you will find the Espressofabriek with simply the best coffee Amsterdam Has to sacrifice. Enjoy a superb breakfast in the nearby Bakkerswinkel. Every Sunday of the month there is a farmers market in the park. If you're looking for something very close to the BedonBoard, we recommend the Pavilion.

In summary, a peaceful but central location in a nice neighborhood in Amsterdam.

ACCESSIBILITY:

    From the airport you can take a train to central station (20 min). From there you can upkeep walk (20 minutes), take a cab (approximately € 13) or take bus 21 (less than 10 minutes).

To take bus 21. When you arrive at Central Station, exit on the city side (main exit). Take bus No. 21 and get off after 5 minutes at the stop "of Beuningenplein". At the other side of the street you will see a large square with a play garden: the "from Beuningenplein". Take the road left of this square (Second Keucheniusstraat) and follow 150 meters to the very end. You are in front of your BedonBoard!

When you Decide to come by car. You can park your car almost always in front of the BedonBoard. HOWEVER, Amsterdam is not very "car friendly" as the city charges rather high rates for parking. Alternatively, go to Park and Ride Amsterdam for cheaper parking options. The Park and Ride that's Closest to us, is the "P + R Sloterdijk". The cost for Park and Ride is € 8 per day. They offer return tickets for public transport free of charge.

Great honeymoon spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a delight Doet and her family are! They are so helpful and communicative any time you need them, but give you all the privacy you could want. We started our European honeymoon here and she had the best 'on' and off the beaten path recommendations of what to do. The sheets are soft and luxurious, the shower is nice and big, and the people are such wonderful Dutch spirits. Nice, safe quiet neighborhood in a 20 min walk or short bike distance to central station. Unique Amsterdam experience highly worth it! She even gifted us champagne and homemade elderflower to celebrate!

Quiet and Cozy Room

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay at Bed on Board during my visit to Amsterdam. The room is very clean and completely updated in a quiet part of town. Doet and Sven are very welcoming and have supplies for all your needs. The house is a little bit on the outskirts of town so it is about 15min walk to get to main area sites like Westerkerk and Anne Frank House on the west side.

I highly recommend Bed on Board for your stay if you like to walk!

Brilliant !!

  • 5 of 5

Living on a boat was a dream and it was our last leg of the honeymoon. Just the place we needed to relax and explore Amsterdam. Close to all the bus and tram stops, very safe at late nights as well. Will definitely recommend for stay over if you aren't looking for something very spacious. But the lack of space is made up by the warmth of the owner and people around. Cheers
