You are in the very centre and you can reach everything by foot. More central you will not find. Yet it is quiet, because the Amstel is very broad, so other boats will not go by to close.

Coming down a stair with a few steps, you enter the living area with open kitchen with gas stove, coffee maker and kitchen utensils.

The other bedroom is next to the livingroom, it has a single bed which can be extended to a double bed (140 x 200).

You can also enjoy the rooftop terrace where you can sit and watch the boats go by and have a first class view on the Amstel and the Skinny Bridge.
Every window in the houseboat has an open view over the the river Amstel providing a comfortable spacious feeling. There is also a Bed and Breakfast on the houseboat which is usually occupied in the weekends, but you will have two-thirds of the boat for yourself and private.
Area description : Canal Belt / Centre of Amsterdam
The history of Amsterdam is intimately connected with water. Its 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city. The four main canals, which determine the image of the center of Amsterdam, are Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. The canal belt is a system of streets, quays, bridges and houses which are built on identical plots of equal length and width. In between you can find closed courtyards. On the outside of this beautiful canal houses you can read the prosperity that characterized the Golden Age and the 18th century. Since many buildings are renovated in the course of time, the buildings vary in terms of architectural styles and beautiful facades, which creates a characteristic appearance. The famous canals have been a tourist attraction for many years, which resulted in the fact that they are found on the World Heritage List of UNESCO since 2010.
Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historical centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.
In the intervening streets you can find many small bars, restaurants and boutiques. A lovely place to spend an afternoon. Here you will also find the shopping area 'The Nine Streets', which includes leading stores of big brands, but also the small exclusive shops. In addition, many crafts are located here, such as butchers and bakers. The canal belt is the center of Amsterdam, this puts you within walking distance of many tourist attractions such as the Anne Frank House, Rembrandt Square, Leidseplein, Museumplein, Dam Square and the Royal Palace and the shopping areas around the Utrechtsestraat and Kalverstraat.
