It was quite clean. The owner Peter met us when we checked in and was very helpful and accommodating to our early check-in arrival. The boat has everything one needs to be warm, clean and comfortable. The shower had good hot water, and the kitchen has everything one needs to prepare a meal. The bed is large and very comfortable. In addition, the location was brilliant; right on the Prinsengracht, and also on a street that had lots of great little restaurants and shops and also nearby the Rembrandtplein. We would definitely return, and also would highly recommend the houseboat to couples, perhaps with a child, or singles on a getaway.
