We opted for an apartment as we were going with another couple and this apartment ticked all the boxes. Yeah the stairs were a bit steep but what do you expect in a typical Dutch building! The apartment was clean and the location is fantastic! A friendly handover both on arrival and leaving so on behalf on everyone on the trip thank you!

Zur Begrüßung gab es erstmal eine Flasche Wein. Wir konnten uns an den Haus eigenen Getränken bedienen (inkl.). Das Boot ist sehr geräumig,wir waren mit 7 Personen dort. Das Boot liegt super zentral,so dass man problemlos alles erreichen kann. Die Gracht in der es liegt ist super schön. Ich kann das Boot nur weiterempfehlen. Danke Marja

It has everything you need and an exceptional large comfortable bed. All booking and check in facilities fast and efficient and friendly. Easy to travel to and from Amsterdam city centre by bus and this takes just a few minutes. A true gem of a place and would definitely recommend.
