On the Water Studio

Jacob van Lennepkade 2 , amsterdam, 1053 Netherlands (Show map)


Five minutes walking from Leidseplein, in the old centre of Amsterdam, is this recently renewed and charming house boat. With oriental style decoration, the studio is located on a quiet canal and offers everything any other accommodation would, but more than that, you will live the Dutch way to be “On the Water”. The boat has a small terrace with a lot of plants, where you can sit to eat, smoke and/or have a glass of wine whilst the boats pass by - it’s an unforgettable experience. It offers now wireless ADSL connection! It accommodates with great comfort maximum 2 persons on a double bed.

An outstanding vacation

4.6 on June 30, 2008

We had a very short stay (only for 2 days) in this lovely place but am sure we would like to return there one day. I'd recommend this houseboat for all who are interested to taste a real Amsterdam and for a romantic trip. The room is spacious and clean,you find all you may need here. And there is nothing better than feeding ducks early in the morning sipping cup of coffee on the terrace. The location is pretty nice as for those who deserves quite rest as for partying ones.
