Great location, lovely boat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 2 adult children. We could not have asked for a better location. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. The boat and view were fantastic. We loved sitting out on the deck and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

A very unique and enjoyable way to experience Amsterdam. The boat was comfortable and very close to the center. Host was great. And even better, I slept so well, I didn’t get jet lag (coming from San Francisco)

Nice host, great location, unique experience

  • 5 of 5

Han welcomed us on our arrival and was very nice and helpful. The houseboat was clean and had all we needed. It was cold this March but the boat has a small woodstove which heated the cabins wonderfully in addition to electric heat. We loved the experience of being in one of 2500 houseboats in Amsterdam. The location was great - a 5 minutes walk to the Central Station and old Amsterdam, the maritime Museum, the science centre and more. He also has bicycles which we used to tour the city. Grocery store and Starbucks also nearby.

Overall a wonderful stay!

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.

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.
