Property description

ARK16 is a studio on a houseboat in the Jordaan in the city center of Amsterdam overlooking the canal. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. Walking distance from Amsterdam central train station, shops, museums like Anne Frank.

The studio has his own entrance, private kitchen, living/bedroom and bathroom.

Bike and boat rentals are in the same street. Stay on the houseboat, hop on a bike and experience the real feeling of being an 'Amsterdammer'.

Hope to see you soon!
Tot ziens.

Best regards Annette.

About the owner: I'm Annette de Groot, born in Gouda and the owner of the houseboat. The B&B is in one part of the house boat, I live in the other part. I started the B&B for everybody around the world to enjoy the feeling of living on a houseboat in the best spot of Amsterdam. This picture hangs in ARK16 and has a special secret to it. Come and find out what it is.

Why the Owner Chose Grachtengordel, Amsterdam, Netherlands:
I can't imagine an other better place on the world to live!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The best experience to be able to stay on a houseboat in the middle of Amsterdam and yet in a very quiet part of the beautiful Jordaan, with its narrow streets and with the best restaurants and stores.
