Fun place to stay in Amsterdam
Very clean, cozy, and close to everything. Coleta was an amazing host, very informative and accommodating. Great view from the top of the Janna. Would definitely recommend.
Darling and cozy little houseboat
We loved our stay in Amsterdam! The houseboat was perfect for us - in a quiet area but a short streetcar ride to museums, shops and restaurants (although there were several good restaurants within walking distance of the houseboat.) There were several streetcar and Metro lines a short walk away. It was a great place for us and Coleta and her family were wonderful hosts, even loaning me a cold pack after I twisted my ankle. We hope we can stay here again someday!
Excellent experience on the Amstel river, convenient and comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with two adults and two teenage girls. The accommodation was spartan but very clean and comfortable. The location is only a couple blocks from a tram stop, with ample grocery and restaurant options nearby. We enjoyed the little coffee shop across the street from the boat for breakfast. The bedding was cozy and high quality. We made full use of the top deck for wine/cheese picnics, watching all the locals enjoy summer afternoon boating on the river. Coleta is very friendly and easy to communicate with, speaking perfect English. She was available and attentive to all our needs. We would definitely return and give her accommodation our highest rating.
Thank you for your last minute booking of the Janna. You were lovely guests and we would love to see you again on one of our houseboats.
The stay in the houseboat with over a hundred years of history was for us, from European inland, very unusual and attractive experience. We enjoyed little cabins for sleeping (little bit claustrophobic but very comfortable!), terrace at the top of the boat, the sounds of water pump - all this creates an unforgettable atmosphere! Coleta was so nice, hearty and very patient (regarding my complications with Amsterdam public transport before arrival), the communication was perfect and I very appriciated her recommendations and information about the city and life in Amsterdam. The neighborhood is perfect - the busy street with tram, shops, cafés and restaurants just around the corner, you feel that you are just in the heart of the city and the walk to historic centre, which is not far, is very pleasant.
Thank you so much. It was lovely having you on board of our old barge ;)
It was great. Coletta and family were excellent hosts! Nice recap on the history of the houseboat. We felt very comfortable and relaxed after our travels. Thanks for doing the laundry! 😉�
You are more than welcome. We loved having you with us.
En väldigt trevlig husbåt i ett trevligt område.
Trevlig husbåt och ett varmt välkomnande och hjälpsam värd. Området ligger lagom utanför city med många små trevliga restaurager i närheten. Rekomenderas.
Tack så mycket. Du var mycket trevliga gäster. :)
The houseboat is located in a FAMILY FRIENDLY area on one of the best spots on the river Amstel in the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam, called De Pijp and is just a 10 to 20 minutes walk to most tourist attractions like the Rijksmuseum, the Heineken Experience, Albert Cuyp Market, the Hermitage, RAI congress centre, the old centre of Amsterdam, one of the nicest shopping area’s of Amsterdam called “Utrechtsestraat” and lots of good restaurants on the Van Woustraat.
