The boat was amply spacious enough for our party of four, and was very warm and welcoming. Sander greeted us on arrival, gave a guided tour of the boat and plenty of useful information about Amsterdam. The accommodation was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and was immaculately clean. The location of the boat was perfect, just a short walk from the ferry, which ran very frequently. The ferry service was excellent and we never had to wait for a boat to arrive, and within a few minutes you were across the river and in the heart of Amsterdam. In the local vicinity we came upon a new café/bakery on 113 Mosveld called de Bakkerszonen that we could definitely recommend. The welcome from the staff was great and the food was superb. The selection of cakes, bread and pastries to take away was fantastic. We all agreed we would definitely recommend this accommodation.

The apartment is excellently located almost round the corner from the Anne Frank Huis and Westerkerk Church. The church chimes regularly and is lovely to hear. The accommodation is well equipped and very comfortable. Being on the 4th floor gives you more light and some city views, but also more stairs! They are worth the climb though. We hope to return!

The apartment was very conveniently located and absolutely lovely. We enjoyed our stay greatly and will return on our next trip to visit family in the area. Loft Gillian is over a crepe shop and not only did we enjoy stopping in for crepes but we also really enjoyed the proprietor of the shop. Lovely people, lovely setting and spacious apartment.
