Lots of fun on the Bamboo Boat!

  • 5 of 5

We four Californians in our 70s had a great time staying on the Bamboo Boat. Even the one of us with some balance challenges figured out how to easily (but carefully) get down the stairs to the lower apartment. Both apartments were very clean, all amenities were provided, and Han is a wonderful host. You can't beat the location, right on the water, and so close to the central train station. We recommend it highly.

  • 5 of 5

"I''d suggest this houseboat to everyone is going to visit Amsterdam. It''s new and comfortable, the position is precious because it''s very near to Amsterdam centraal station and just a ten minutes walk to Dam square. When you wake up in the morning you see the sun rising behind Nemo. Han is a very nice host kind and easy going. Don''t hesitate to rent bambooboat and enjoy the city."

Tolle Lage im Zentrum

  • 5 of 5

Freundliche Begrüßung durch Han und Anneliese. Man fühlt sich wie zu Hause.

Trotz Lage im Zentrum ist es sehr ruhig und man kann den Außenbereich genießen.

Die Ausstattung ist Klasse .

Das Hausboot ist für einen Besuch in Amsterdam zu empfehlen. Immer wieder.

Bambooboat made a lovely setting for our break.

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 women in our fifties, who stayed there for our anual break together. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the terrace and the cosy interior . We were made to feel welcome by fresh flowers and everything was clean and fresh. A map showed the supermarkets and Han was very informative. Bambooboat was placed very central and easy to find despite the roadworks. We thank you, Han, for giving us such a lovely setting for our break and for your hospitality. We would like to come back.

Leaving the central station through the main entrance, you turn left at the Prins Hendrikkade in front. You follow the street till nr 120.

Go left down the incline towards the parking place for buses, you take a sharp turn right past the barrier.

The boat is located at some 200 meters from the Nieuwmarkt next to the red light district and a host of restaurants. Also at this distance the technology and maritime museum as well as the Rembrandt House.

Use the bikes or canoes or inflatable boat to explore the historic centre.
