Private houseboat apartment
Our houseboat is moored right in the heart of the old centre in the widest and most beautiful tree lined canal of Amsterdam. Even though the immediate surroundings are quiet and residential, Nieuwmarkt square and Central Station are around the corner. You cannot stay more centrally than this!
Many guests have enjoyed staying on our boat while discovering Amsterdam. They have noted their experiences and many good idea´s in a book in the houseboat which you can read during your stay.
The houseboat area is peaceful but véry close (1 street away) to all the city entertainment. Nieuwmarkt square with its many cafe terraces, bars, restaurants and lovely special shops is just around the corner. Dam square is a couple of streets further away, past the red light district. Central Station is only about 400 metres away.
From Central Station tram/metro/bus leave every minute to take you anywhere you want to go in Amsterdam. For the real Amsterdam experience you can rent a bike nearby.
