    Prime location is the best high light of the place. Joop was very friendly and considerate.

  • Joanne

    This was a wonderful place to stay with lots of room and oh so comfortable. Check in was such a pleasant experience and providing us with a personal taxi to the airport took all the stress out of a very early check out. One could not ask for a better location in Amsterdam. It was close to all the things we wanted to take in. The house boat was well equipped and having the outside terrace area made are stay so much more enjoyable. I would recommend this place to anyone and would certainly stay here again.

    Our first ever visit to Amsterdam was a great experience. Our houseboat was really comfortable and very conveniently situated, with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay, and easy access to the \'hop on/hop off\' canal boats. Although the houseboat owner was on holiday at that time, he had arranged a stand-in \'host\' to ensure a friendly welcome when we arrived. Thank you. We look forward to our next visit.

  • Paulo Ricardo Dantas

    Great accommodations, my son and I were very pleased with this houseboat.Joop our host, received us very friendly way.

  • Loaec

    Agréable séjour en famille. House boat tout confort et joliment décoré. Endroit paisible un peu loin du centre vivant d amsterdam. Accueil chaleureux.

  • Dudley F McIlhenny

    This worked out perfectly for us!The location was quite convenient and the houseboat was exactly as advertised. We were more than comfortable in the main bedroom and our friends had no problems with the guest room. Kitchen and bathroom all worked nicely.A super value and a great place from which to base ones exploration of the city! Would definitely do it again.

  • Patrice

    Nous avons passé un agréable séjour ensoleillé à bord de l\'house-boat \"El Greco\" très bien agencé et très bien situé. Visite de nos amis les cygnes, canards... Que demandez de plus... Je ne manquerai pas de recommander votre agence d\'autant qu\'après notre séjour nous avions oublié le permis de conduire de mon mari et grâce à votre intervention tout est rentré dans l\'ordre. Un grand merci... et je pense à très bientôt.Valérie - Patrice (8 au 11/11/2014)

    My friends and me spent a few days in Amsterdam hosted in this great houseboat.It is the best way to be hosted, trust me. You have all what you need inside.The houseboat is located in one of the best channels in Amsterdam, very close to the city centre so you can walk to any place from there.Totally recommended!!!Best,

  • Jose

    Amazing experience to wake up in a Houseboat in an Amsterdam Canal.... and this boat is lovely. Extremely comfortable! !!! I recommend. .

  • Yohay

    The boat that I was on (belong to Mr. Jopp) was 100% perfect. The accommodations where perfect, and the experience was great. I will rent THIS BOAT again next year.

  • Johanna Bannerman

    This was our third time staying on this wonderful houseboat, this time for our honeymoon! Had a fantastic time and the boat was better than ever. Joop made us feel very welcome as always. We realised there was no kettle when we arrived and he had a brand new one for us within 15 minutes, very helpful. Once again we hope to return sometime in the future, I can\'t think of a better place to stay in Amsterdam. Thank you!

  • Claudia

    still a wonderful place to be and to live in amsterdam. i like the boat and the interieur very much, it has style, is sfervol and comfortable. i will come back, thats for sure!

  • Rainer

    Das Hausboot liegt sehr zentral. Ausstattung ist super. Von A bis Z perfekt. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind schnell erreichbar (fußläufig). Vermieter ist sehr freundlich. Schlüsselübergabe völlig problemlos. Wie wohl in ganz Amsterdam ist das Parken ein Problem. 4 Euro die Stunde oder in einem 4 Kilometer entfernten Parkhaus für 8 Euro den Tag. Kann der Vermieter aber nicht dafür. Fazit: Super Tage auf einem sehr empfehlenswerten Hausboot verbracht!!!

  • Joseph

    We enjoyed our stay this year as much as we did last year (first week in October both times). We returned because this housboat is comfortable, has a very good kitchen, laundry facilities, wifi, and a wonderful covered deck right on the canal. The boat abuts a nice residential area. I haven't seen this type of deck before --it must be grandfathered and not possible anymore. 8 swans visited us every day along with ducks and sea birds. The location is ideal -- close to major museums, the Heineken Brewery, great restaurants, supermarkets and liquor stores, as well as the wonderful outdoor market selling all sorts of produce, fruits, fish, cheese, meats... It's quiet at night and lively during the day with all the various boats going by. It's sunny too. The owner makes arrangements with a very friendly host who is very knowledgeable about the area and is ready to make recommendations for things you might like to do. He is only a short walk away living on another houseboat. He also offered us early morning transportation to the airport at a very fair rate. Oh, when I say houseboat, this is not a converted boat. This is a single family house built on a floating platform (barge?). It has been stabilized on the water and it doesn't rock around. This is so much better than a hotel because it feels as comfy as home. After a day of siteseeing, it's nice to come back to a pleasant home with a cocktail and snack at your disposal. It's also nice to have your own coffee in the morning and maybe a pastry that caught your eye the day before. The ability to cook is fun and can save a few euro too. The decor could use a bit of updating; but this is surely a minor point with all the other amenities considered. I would definitely return to this unique accommodation when in Amsterdam again.

    In één woord: geweldig!

  • Michaela & Johannes

    Wir haben ein paar sehr entspannte Urlaubstage auf dem Hausboot verbracht. Alles ist wie auf den Fotos abgebildet. Wir fühlten uns wie zu Hause! Bei schönem Wetter konnten wir auf der Terrasse Frühstücken und Abendessen (Sonne den ganzen Tag!). Es war sehr nett mit den vorbeifahrenden Booten - neben Winken, Grüßen, kurzen Zurufen, wurde uns von einem Käsehändler sogar einmal spontan ein Käse "rübergeworfen". Die Lage des Bootes ist ideal für Selbstversorger (Supermarkt schräg gegenüber) und für Unternehmungen (Museen teilweise in fußläufiger Entfernung und das Zentrum mit der Straßenbahn an der nächsten Ecke schnell erreicht, auch die Nähe zum Canalbus und den Tourbooten haben wir genutzt). Mit der Buchung und der Bootsübergabe bei An- und Abreise lief ebenfalls alles ganz unkompliziert. Wir werden sicher bald wiederkommen und können es uns kaum vorstellen, in Amsterdam künftig anders zu wohnen, als wieder auf einem Hausboot!

  • Thekla

    A really lovely houseboat - it was a pleasure spending my holiday here and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. A gorgeous canal side position and lots of ducks to feed. The supermarket is just across the canal which is very convenient. The museum quarter is located just around the corner and it's a short tram ride or pleasant walk into the centre of the city. The houseboat has everything you need: washer and dryer for clothing; dishwasher; comfy beds; great view; big fridge and good facilities for cooking. A microwave would have been nice. Perhaps I would have liked the houseboat to be a little cleaner... It wasn't unclean but perhaps not clean to my high standards. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again and recommend this to my friends.

  • Johanna

    This was our second time staying in this beautiful houseboat (the first being in January 2012). We had another excellent stay and particularly enjoyed sitting out on the deck each day, enjoying the sunshine and feeding the ducks. I would recommend this boat to anyone, particularly couples looking for a great place to relax in Amsterdam that is quiet but close to all the best areas. The only negative point is that the kitchen is not fully equipped for making your meals - the oven only has one shelf and there are no oven trays to cook anything on, so some meals were quite tricky! Apart from that everything was great, and the owner's neighbour Joop was very friendly (he even made us a pot of coffee for our arrival!). Great stay and hopefully we will be back again at some point in the future!

  • Alexander

    A very nice Place to relaxe in a central very good located spot. The houseboat is stuffed with everything you need for a nice and easy holiday. we only had trouble to get the internet running and also the nice lady from next door where we got the keys from couldnt help us with this......... but excet from that everything was perfect. thanks a lot!

  • Janet

    This is the second time we have stayed at this boat. In the spring it was delightful but in the rain of December it was even better. It was pouring in Amsterdam when we arrived. What a pleasure to be able to sit at our kitchen table sipping coffee and watching the swans sail by. Nicely appointed boat very well located near to the museums and also to grocery shopping and restaurants. Perfect for a couple. The second bedroom would be fine for children but not really a second couple; we used it as our closet and dressing room. Very comfortable living room and well equipped kitchen. The nearby caretaker was gracious and arranged for our cab to the station when we left. CityMundo was great to work with and we will certainly rent through them again.

  • Johanna

    We stayed on this houseboat for 5 nights at the beginning of January 2012 and loved it. Very easy to reach from Central Station, great location, and the houseboat itself is lovely. Even nicer than the photos, with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay - a real 'home away from home' feel. So much nicer than a hotel and much better value for money. The boat is 2 minutes from a tram stop, 5 minutes from the nearest supermarket, and within walking distance of all of Amsterdam's nicest areas and tourist attractions. We were greeted by the owner's neighbour who was very welcoming and helpful. Enjoyed our stay so much that we are thinking about coming back again in summer to make the most of the lovely deck area on the canal! - Johanna & Christy, Glasgow, Scotland.

  • Claudia

    ein ganz tolles hausboot, voll ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht, gemütlich, gepflegt, sehr sauber und ordentlich. sehr sehr nette betreuung durch citymundo und die dame, die das boot verwaltet. albert heyn in sichtweite, ein großer markt um die ecke, sehr zentral und die tram ebenfalls in der nähe - besser geht es nicht! wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, die vielen sightseeingboote, die vorbeifahren und die einmalige athmospäre genossen und wir wollen auf jeden fall wiederkommen. vielen dank, citymundo für die schönen unterkünfte, die ihr immer wieder zur verfügung stellt, die günstigen preise und die unkomplizierte abwicklung. goed zo!

  • Kate

    We stayed on this houseboat for three nights with our two young sons. Although a little tired in places it had everything we needed for our stay. It was very well equipped and comfortable and in a wonderful location. Close to a good supermarket, restaurants and the tram to anywhere else you want to go. Being able to enjoy the canal on the deck, complete with visiting ducks and swans, was an added bonus.

  • Silvia

    Silvia-Austria 23.10.-28.10.2011 Ein sehr gemütliches, uriges Hausboot in absoluter Toplage. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten und Zentrum zu Fuß erreichbar.Fahrradverleih und Ausflugsfahrten 2-3 Minuten entfernt.Supermarkt ebenfalls. Ausstattung mehr als ausreichend, Küche neuwertig mit allen notwendigen Geräten(auch Geschirrspüler :))Die Terrasse war auch jetzt im Herbst ein gemütliches Plätzchen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und sind froh kein Hotel gemietet zu haben, es hatte eine unvergessliche Atmosphäre.

  • Joseph

    Great location near open air markets and large supermarkets. Walking distance to trams. Very comfy accommodations. Loved the large kitchen and laundry. Small terrace was very relaxing after a day of touring around and the swans came by every day for their feeding. Right outside the door is an attractive residential area.

  • Ellen

    Een comfortabele, schone en gezellige accomodatie met als extra pluspunt het overdekte terras. De centrale ligging biedt de mogelijkheid om Amsterdam ook lopend van diverse kanten te ontdekken. Een aanrader!

  • Robert

    Everything was perfect! The host was very accomodating meeting us as she lives next door! There is parking right outside. The Heineken Experience is right across the canal and it is only a few blocks from the Rijksmuseum and Leidesplein area. The boat was big with a very nice deck on the canal! The bed slept great and the washer/dryer were very important and worked well! The full size refrigerator and freezer also came in handy with the full, newly remodeled kitchen. We have stayed on a houseboat once before through Citymundo in Amsterdam and will definitely do it every time I travel there! This is the way to go...over any hotel!!!

  • Vivienne

    This houseboat is beautiful, we have stayed here three times, once with my parents and twice just ourselves. The kitchen and sitting area are nice and big, the views out onto the canal are very relaxing and you can feed the swans and ducks from the terrace. The kitchen is easy to use and well stocked with utensils. The owner is very nice and friendly. I highly recommend it

  • Anastasio Javier

    Nice houseboat near Heineken Factory. Very confortable, all accomodations, good kitchen. Lovely terrace to the canal.

  • Vivienne

    This is a beautiful houseboat in a quiet area but with plenty of tram links close by. The second bedroom is much smaller than the main so if there are more than 2 of you staying there may be arguments! The canal looks great and the swans gliding by at regular intervals make it even more relaxing. We've been here three times and love this place.
