The house boat is lovely...! Had a really good stay. Lionel is very helpful and makes you feel totally welcome. It's clean, warm and a absolute delight. The metro station is less than a minute away. The boat is in a great location. I would return in a heart beat.

The best thing about this houseboat is that it is within walking distance of everything one might want to do in old Amsterdam and yet it is very quiet and safe. You can walk to it easily from the Central Train Station and it is only a few blocks from the Dam - the main square in Amsterdam. There is a metro within a 100 yards of the houseboat if you want to go anywhere on the metro line and there are buses that go all over town within about 100 yards as well. It is a quirky, crazy place to stay, very different, and I especially loved being able to look out over the water at all hours and see so many small unique boats going past our windows. The shower was strong and hot; the kitchen cramped, but adequate - we ate out most of the time so that didn't matter. We would have liked having more light during the evenings. but all in all, it was a very pleasant experience.

One of the most brilliant times I have had in Amsterdam as well, weather bit sad but the boat is so homely and well prepared by Lionel I would recommend it to anyone.

Housboat, very nice. Any comfort in a warm ambience and style-boheme. and very nice opening above the bed that you can see the moon and the stars lying in bed. Great location in the center. Lionel, a good home, friendly, will give you lots of tips and do not hesitate to ask for addresses.

The main goal is that you spend the best stay and feel like in your houseboat. After a life of historian, I decided to live my retirement with 2 dreams : to be in Amsterdam and in a houseboat. The flats are too noisy and a barge is too down. About the houseboat, I love and enjoy it. I rent it when I am in countryside. It is not a permanent renting place. I prefer to welcome my guests than to deal with customers of a business. I am looking forward to welcome you as my guests !
