We had a wonderful time on this charming houseboat in the perfect location. We were concerned to see the earlier poor review, but I think the difference between our experience and that of the early reviewer is primarily due to expectation. This is a not a standard hotel, but a boat, a charmingly unique experience. We did not experience any mildew or mold (although we could sometimes smell the canal: it’s Amsterdam, after all). Sitting outside was a highlight of our trip. We had 4 adults and slept comfortably and found the boat to be well equipped. We are sorry to be leaving and hope to come back for another stay sometime; I wouldn’t hesitate to book this place again and highly recommend it for travelers looking for a fun place to stay.
Moldy, Tired, Messy
If you want to experience the real Amsterdam by living on a house boat, steer clear of this one! There is a very bizarre set-up, whereby the bathroom facilities are broken up throughout the boat. There is a room with a toilet and sink near the kitchen. Fine. However, then there are two bedrooms, one with a shower stall and one with a bathtub — IN THE ACTUAL SLEEPING ROOMS — leading to condensation that drips down the sides of the walls onto the beds! The condensation and dripping also occurs when it’s raining, so you may get droplets falling on you while you sleep at night.
The smell of mold/mildew is quite obvious.
The owner has placed a sofa-like thing in a corner of the main living space and there’s a table for four near the entry steps. Then there’s a giant teddy bear flopped in the corner next to the trash can. That is the extent of the furniture. So, if you have three people, they would all have to sit huddled on the tight little sofa. We actually have 2 teenaged sons, so the sofa was the “bed” for one of them, leaving no space at all for anyone to sit except at the dining table. As a matter of fact, when I asked for sheets for the sofa bed, the owner brought over a duvet. That’s it — my son had to sleep on the sofa without any sheets!
Almost forgot to mention the bath linens. The owner provided 4 bath towels, two of which were actually just large hand towels. We are slim people, and these wouldn’t even fit around our waists!
The owner has left his stuff all over the boat so that wherever you look, it’s just messy. There were dying plants hanging from a hook, various photos and discordant decorations just strewn about on ledges,
This place needs a complete remodeling and clean-up before you should consider renting it. Just warning!
dejlig husbåd, god beliggenhed tæt på alt
Dårligt at ovnen i komfuret ikke fungerede og at der ikke kom nogen og lavede den som vi var blevet lovet.
Noget overdrevet med et badekar i det ene soverum. Der manglede plads i hele båden til opbevaring af tøj og kuffer.
ellers en dejlig båd med central beliggenhed i gå afstand til det meste.
