    This is the most wonderful way to stay in Amsterdam. It was very reasonably priced with a huge amount of space in a good location. The living room/dining room/kitchen area is filled with light. Being able to go out on the floating patio was fabulous. Everything that was there worked well. Our only complaint would be the place needed some care. The slipcovers on the couch and loveseat desperately needed washing and carpets needed cleaning. Some of the kitchen drawers were not in good shape.

    Nicely laid out houseboat, clean, with big windows and a nice view of the canal, other houseboats, and the line of trees behind the houseboats across the canal. Southern exposure on an East-West canal created lots of natural lighting. The host was hospitable and made us feel welcome. The floating dock was a great addition and made for a spacious outdoor experience. The neighborhood seemed quiet with infrequent cars. The Albert Heijn supermarket and the Albert Cuypmarket were just across the canal, 5 minutes walk away. Good location near De Pijp. This houseboat fitted our needs well and we wish we could have stayed longer. Even when it\'s raining, staying on a houseboat creates a comfortable Amsterdam experience.

    We enjoyed a week at this very nice boathouse. It is very functional with everything we need, very well located for the museums and a tram nearby to go downtown. Although there is a lot of cruisers passing by the canal is quite peaceful and we had plenty of occasions to feed the swans and ducks that obviously live there. A very enjoyable stay.

    Hallo, es war einfach wunderbar, mitten in Amsterdam zu sein und doch so einen ruhigen Ort zum Entspannen zu haben. Das Hausboot hat uns sehr gut gefallen, war etwas ganz besonderes.Es hat alles super geklappt, Fazit : Empfehlenswert

  • Jim

    A clean, well-appointed float house with the landlord next door. On the Singlegracht which is a main tourist and local boat water path. Also near the busy intersection of Stadhouderskade and Van Woustraat, so expect some traffic noise. Exceptionally well located near the Museumplein and De Pijp, with great tram connections and a taxi stand. The floating pontoon deck was an excellent people watching area. Included at no extra charge were families of ducks, commorants and swans always eager for a handout.Easy access to the Albert Heijn and the Rabobank ATM.Highly recommended.

    Great place! We (two couples) stayed three nights. The boat has a lovely small floating patio. We spent hours out there, eating breakfast, feeding ducks, watching canal boats float by, drinking wine. When we arrived, Joop (who lives nearby) met us and showed us around. The boat has two bedrooms, a large living room, bathroom, and the outside patio. Wifi was very good, even with all four of us using it. The boat is easy walking distance to central Amsterdam. There is a large grocery store just across the canal. There is parking (paid) on the street or in a 24-hr secure garage nearby. We definitely plan on staying here again when we are next in Amsterdam. This is the perfect way to stay in Amsterdam - so much better than a hotel.

  • Susan

    We had a lovely holiday on the houseboat.The location was perfect for us and very easy to reach lots of good places.It was novel to stay on a houseboat and we especially enjoyed the outside space with passing boats and wildlife.The welcome from Joop and colleagues was great.The houseboat had everything we needed but could do with a little tlc and updating.Having said that we would definitely stay again.

    Tolles Hausboot in idealer Lage für unseren Aufenthalt in Amsterdam. Von hier konnten wir mit Fahrrädern alles Interessante gut erreichen. Die schwimmende Terrasse ist genial. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und würden es jederzeit wieder buchen.

  • Ken

    We very much enjoyed our stay on the houseboat. We very lucky enough to have great weather and spent a lot of time on the floating patio. We took photos of the tourists on the boats taking photos of us!One of the best things was the plentiful glassware and nice dishwasher with detergent included. Unlike most rental apts., Joop keeps the food and supplies that others leave. We were able to scavenge a lot of food and didn\'t have to buy things like coffee that we didn\'t need an entire container.Great location, too. I would stay there again. Only complaint was the flat pillows and hard bed in one of the rooms, but flat pillows seem to be a Europe norm.

  • Fred

    Hi, we had a great time on this houseboat, it was very clean and had everthing we needed , it is in a great location. The \'patio\' is a floating pontoon ideal for seeing life on the canal with plenty boats going by. Plenty of wildlife too with Coots nesting nearby. We look forward to going back again as the booking system was very efficient with Citymundo.

  • Philippe

    Superbe houseboat, spacieux et confortable, très lumineux avec ses grandes baies vitrées donnant sur le canal. Idéalement situé en plein centre ville, dans un quartier calme, à 10 minutes à pied du Rijkmuseum et à proximité immédiate d\'un arrêt de tram et d\'un magasin Albert Heijn, ce qui est très pratique. Contrairement à l\'hôtel, séjourner sur un houseboat tel que celui-ci ne donne pas l\'impression de faire du tourisme mais de vivre dans la ville, de faire partie de ses habitants. Depuis la première fois en 2008 où j\'ai découvert ce bateau, je n\'ai jamais logé ailleurs chaque fois que je suis revenu à Amsterdam. Un must.

    Super schönes Hausboot, tolle Lage, liebevoll eingerichtet mit allem, was man braucht, incl. z.B. Gewürzen in der Küche, so dass man nicht jeden Quatsch erst kaufen muss, um sich selbst zu versorgen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und es sehr genossen, nach langen Fussmärschen durch die Stadt einen so schönen, gemütlichen Rückzugsort zu haben. Und auch die Kinder haben es geliebt! Unbedingt empfehlenswert! Vielen Dank!

  • Sandra

    Klasse hausboot, super Lage, tolle Terasse, ideal für Familie mit zwei Kindern,Betten leider nur eine große Decke, ungünstig ,wenn man nicht gerade als Paar verreist, ansonsten würden wir jederzeit auf diesem hausboot unseren Urlaub verbringen... Danke für den Tipp! Der Eigentümer hat bereits einzel Deckbetten für das Doppelbett gekauft. CityMundo

  • Philippe

    Séjour très agréable, hébergement spacieux et confortable, à deux pas des musées et du centre ville. Formule beaucoup plus chaleureuse et moins onéreuse que 2 chambres d'hôtel, convenant parfaitement à 4 personnes pour un grand week-end à Amsterdam. Tout à fait recommandable.

  • Cedric

    super house boat parfaitement située en plein centre des sites touristiques. quai très calme malgré les bateaux qui passent toute la journée (mais pas la nuit) bien meublée et bien équipée tramway au bout de la rue pas de crainte pour le mal de mer, la maison bouge très peu voire pas du tout (pas comme la terrasse)

  • Mario

    Great houseboat in a fantastic location. It was perfect for three of us and was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and the whole experience was much better than I expected. I will definitely recommend it and will stay there again if we ever go back to Amsterdam!

  • Belle

    Our family have a wonderful stay there. The houseboat is spacious and central to all attractions. It is quite and beautiful in the morning. The shop is just across the road. There is no washing machine there but the laundromat is just across the road.

  • James

    I stayed on this boat for the second time in February 2012 for a long weekeng with my sister. It is my favorite place yet to stay in Amsterdam. It is very relaxing and also very quiet at night. The pijp neighborhood is friendly and inviting. The boat is very well lit with natural light and has every amenity you need for a rental accomodation. Our host, Tuan was there waiting for us and check-in was a breeze, as usual. I have used several times with no problems whatsoever. If you are more than one person, you are crazy to stay in a small hotel room when for a little more money you can have your own place like a local. The only improvement I see is to allow guests to pay in full before arrival so you dont have to walk around Amsterdam with a large amount of cash. p.s. Beware the dock in snowy days, I slipped on ice and almost slid into the canal!!

  • Paul R.

    This houseboat is in a terrific location and is a wonderful place to base yourself for a visit to Amsterdam. The boat is very very comfortable and well equipped, it is easy to get to all local amenities yet is quiet and away from all of the tourist noise. Tuan, your host , is a very nice guy and I can strongly recommend this boat for your stay in Amsterdam. Paul R. USA

  • Hannes

    Alles hat reibungslos geklappt. Hausboot und Lage haben uns sehr gefallen. Fazit: Gerne wieder

  • Beate

    Unser Aufenthalt auf dem Hausboot war wunderschön. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man sich wünscht. Die schlüsselübergabe war unkompliziert und es hat alles sehr gut geklappt. Die Lage ist für einen Stadtaufenthalt ideal. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten befinden sich in unmittelbarer Nähe. Das Boot können wir ruhigen Gewissens weiter empfehlen.

  • Sarah

    We both very much enjoyed our stay in the wonderful city of Amsterdam and were especially pleased with our accommodation. The house boat was easy to get to via the tram from the Central Station situated in a peaceful area and very close to the supermarket. The boat had all facilities required and makes for the perfect stay. Sarah Moore

  • Martin

    Our experience with Citymundo was excellent throught the booking process, as well as any correspondence thereafter. Citymundo was quick to reply to any questions or concerns, and made sure that would have a pleasant and comfortable stay at the nouseboat we rented. The houseboat itself was really great. It was clean and spacious, and made us feel like locals. It was conveniently located in the center of Amsterdam, but far enough away from the very touristy areas so that we had quiet nights. It was a truly wonderful experience that my family won't soon forget.

  • Martin

    Have visited the boat two years running now and liked it.It's in a quiet area which is good.It's clean and comfortable with everything you need.Would probably go again another year.

  • Aleona & Katrin

    We have been there from 23.07.10 till 02.08.10! it's really-really beautiful place! 2 badrooms, a very comfortable kitchen, a nice stereosistem, big windows, and the best of things is terrace on a water! Perfect as for famaly trip as for young crazy friends! it's a quiet part of the city but only 5-10 mints walking and you are on Leidseplein neare a lot of bars, pabs, clubs and restorants. every evening we had dinner on a terace and feed of beurds! We really want to live there!))))))))))) we will be back =D

  • Eberhard

    Wir haben 5 sehr schöne Tage in Ihrem Hausboot verbracht. Es ist hell, geräumig, romantisch und zugleich zentral gelegen und sehr gut ausgestattet-wünschenswert wären funktionierende Leselampen in den Schlafzimmern. Die Floß-Terrasse vor dem Haus haben wir viel genützt; sie ist einfach ideal!

  • Philippe

    I usually go to Amsterdam once or twice a year and I love to stay on this houseboat rather than anywhere else : * it is very spacious, functional and very well equipped. * it is very bright due to its large windows overlooking the canal. * you can put a table and chairs on a terrace outside (when the weather is fine). * it is located in a central area between the Amstel River and the Rijksmuseum, along a quiet street with no traffic noise. * it's only a two minute walk to reach a tram stop and get directly to Central Station or to the main tourist attractions. * there is a supermarket on the other side of the canal, just opposite, which is very convenient. And most of all : I don't have a feeling of confined space like in a hotel room. Through the large windows, I can see the permanent spectacle of everyday life, tourists on canal cruises, people boating or simply ducks or moorhens nesting nearby. And raindrops falling on the water (when the weather is rainy)are really poetic. i don't feel like a tourist, but like a temporary inhabitant of Amsterdam, with furthermore the soothing sensation of living in the countryside rather than in the heart of a city.

  • Jean-Yves

    Logement propre, lumineux, agréable à vivre, spacieux, situé dans une zone très calme à environ 1/2 heure à pied de la gare et à proximité des musées Rijksmuseum et Van Gogh. Surface commerciale en face. Très bon accueil, très sympathique.

  • Konstantin

    Nice place!
