    Staying on this barge was absolutely wonderful. Everyone I talked with were very friendly & helpful. When I arrived at the barge Tuan kindly greeted me, showed me all I needed to know, gave me the keys & contact info, said have a wonderful stay, and left the whole place to me. The inside was so very elegant, warm, and peaceful. The location was so accessible to so many places. Everything was there to make my stay unforgettable. I will be staying in Amsterdam again as there is so much to still see & do and when I do it will be with CITYMUNDO ! :).

  • James

    This is a great spot to position yourself in Amsterdam. Bright, clean and cosy with all the modern convenience of home. Very close to pretty much everything one could want on holidays, a supermarket, a great coffee shop, the museums... But far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the central \"touristy\" areas for a true Amsterdam experience.Would have scored this houseboat five stars if it were not for a few small fixable issues not sorted out during our stay here. Bath tub hot water tap not working, no wifi connection and a sewerage smell at the end of the hall.Other than these few small issues I would most certainly stay here again. Enjoyed it so much I was reluctant to leave.

  • Bart

    Het verblijf in Amsterdam was super. De woonboot het einde en we hebben enorm genoten.

    We had a wonderful stay on this beautiful house boat it is in a great location walking distance to everything. Everything we needed was on the boat and we had the most glorious weather while we were there so it topped the holiday off. Big thumbs up

  • Chloé

    Accueil très chaleureux, excellent séjour à bord de la péniche. Dommage qu\'il n\'y avait pas de rideaux dans les chambres mais c\'est une autre culture :). Très spacieux et très bien située.

  • Anke

    Wij hadden een erg fijne tijd op Christians woonboot. Bedank aan Christian voor alles: het was gewoon perfect!!!!!!

  • Juria & Maurice, Juli 2013

    Dieses Hausboot ist von der Lage, der Ausstattung und seinem Besitzer her wohl kaum zu toppen! Wir waren/sind begeistert! Amsterdam kann man kaum intensiver erleben als in dieser Kombination!

  • Susanne

    Der Aufenthalt auf dem Hausboot war einfach traumhaft, würden wir jedem empfehlen. Wir fühlten uns gleich wie zu Hause. Viel Platz, modern eingerichtet und super zentral mit der Linie 4 bis vor die Haustüre. Der Supermarkt ist gleich vis a vis über der Gracht. GENIAL!!!! Werden wir wieder einmal machen.

  • Garry

    Staying aboard Christaan\'s houseboat was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. The relaxed feeling you get from staying on a boat compared to a small hotel room is really worth it. We were amazed at how spacious the boat was. It would definitely be suitable for 2 couples or a family of 4 and not be too cramped for space. The location is excellent being only 3 minutes walk to the tram station and about 30 minutes walk to the old city centre. We really enjoyed sitting on deck at the end of the day sipping a drink and watching the pleasure boats go by. We would definitely recommend this houseboat.

  • Katja

    Ein tolles Hausboot mit allem was das Herz sich wünscht :) wären gern länger geblieben! Christiaan, der Vermieter super nett und freundlich :) sollten wir mal wieder nach Amsterdam kommen würden wir sehr sehr gerne wieder auf diesem Boot wohnen! Dankeschön für diese wunderschöne Unterkunft!! Liebe Grüße aus Bayern!

  • Jean Pierre

    Super séjour cosy, spacieux et chaleureux dans ce \"house boat\"bien équipé, décoré avec gout, tous près des commodités et des sites d\'intérêt ( 2 mn à pied du supermarché, 10 mn du centre et de Rembrantplein, un quart d\'heure des célèbres musées. Ecouter du jazz de qualité en mangeant, dans une ambiance feutrée mieux qu\'au réstaurant ; se prélasser sur le canapé confortable devant la cheminée allumée pour se reposer ; admirer les étoiles depuis son lit ( on ne les a pas vues : il pleuvait) ; être accueilli par Christiaan très sympa... Bref : que du bonheur ! Un seul regret : un peu chérot pour si peu de jours et donc : séjour trop court. Mais nous recommandons cependant cet hébergement qui vaut le détour.

  • Amadéa

    T R A U M H A F T S C H Ö N !!!!! Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber, wunderschön und mit Stil eingerichtet, da fühlt man sich nur noch wohl und am liebsten würde man die Ferien verlängern!... Der Standort ist central gelegen, in der Nähe einer Tramhaltestelle und doch ruhig. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich, unkompliziert und man ist willkommen! Bei einem nächsten Besuch in Amsterdam würden wir auf jeden Fall dieses Objekt wieder buchen!!

  • Susan

    Stunning houseboat, so good that we were as happy to spend time in the boat as we were to spend time out and about. I have recommended it to friends and would definitely stay again should I visit Amsterdam again.

  • Jean Michel

    La peniche est très confortable et parfaitement équipée pour 4 personnes. La décoration est réalisée avec soin, la cheminée est un véritable bonheur. Manque des rideaux mais c'est typiquement nordique ! La péniche est à quelques minutes à pieds (10/15mn) des principaux musée, de l'embarcadère pour les croisères sur les canaux et du centre ville. Donc un point de départ idéal. Je recommande vivement cette péniche !!

  • Jean Claude

    Propriétaire très accueillant. Hébergement conforme à notre attente,avec en plus une cheminée...! Quartier très agréable et proche du centre ville Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.

  • Deirdre O'Connell

    Great houseboat in a really good location. Everthing was spotless and in good condition. Our host Christian was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this housboat without hesitation and hopefullt I'll get back there again!

  • Luca

    a nice place to stay, very good location to go every where in Amsterdam by walk or by tram. We enjoyed a lot staying there

  • Heather

    We stayed in this house boat during our honeymoon for just a few days. The location was perfect, very close to several public transportation stops and the famous Albert Cuyp market. The owners were very nice, and the amenities very comfortable. We have to say, getting a house boat is the way to go when visiting Amsterdam. Forget about hotels. And with a house boat that is THIS nice, you really feel like it's a home away from home. We would go back to this houseboat in a heartbeat, and have been recommending this boat to anyone who asks. A+.

  • Margaret

    What a wonderful boat and an awesome location. The host was very helpful. The boat was well-equipped and very clean. There was a tram stop, grocery store and market nearby. It was fun to cook on the boat and eat on deck and watch the city and canal life. 8 tram stops and we could access Central Station and travel anywhere in Holland and beyond. We heartily recommend this accommodation.

  • Sally

    This is an amazing boat!! The boat is very spacious and is decorated beautifully with a contemporary style. The bathroom is fab, with a huge bath big enough for two! It was very clean and comfortable. The boat is in a quiet area (we slept really well), but still close enough to all the sights; De Pijp,Rembrantplein, Van Gogh etc. I would highly recommend this accommodation,it felt like such a special place to stay and such a novelty watching all the boats sail by! The owner is really nice too, cheerful and very helpful! I would never normally stay in the same place twice, however this was so lovely we will definitely be staying again. Thank you Christiaan for a wonderful stay!!

  • Britta

    Alles genau wie beschrieben. Ein traumhaft schönes Hausboot mit ganz besonderem Flair. Netter Empfang. Wir hatten sehr schöne Tage. Meine beiden Söhne und ich würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Liebe Grüße

  • Ralf

    Lob:Schöne, geschmackvolle,großzügige Unterkunft die zum wohnen einlädt. Lage ist gut, Umgebung ist schön und die itunesbiblothek hervorragend. Christian, der Vermieter, ist zuvorkommend und unkompliziert. Kritik:ein Dachfenster war undicht und es regnete herein. Die Teppichböden und die Bett-und Polsterbezüge waren schon reichlich abgenutzt. Fazit: Tolle Unterkunft mit etws Nachholbedarf, werde ich wieder buchen.

  • Blandine

    Bonjour, Mes 3 filles et moi même sommes arrivées le 29 juillet pour repartir le 1 aout, soit 3 nuits. Tout a été parfait. Le propriétaire sympathique, nous avons pu rajouter un matelas parterre pour une de mes filles, il n'y a que 2 lits doubles. La péniche est très agréable, très bien située dans un quartier très calme, aménagée avec gout. Nous avons très bien dormi malgré l'absence de rideaux !! Nous prenions le petit déjeuner et les repas du soir, proximité d'une grande surface. Malheureusement j'ai compris qu'il fallait une réservation de 3 nuits minimum !! dommage car j'y serais bien retournée en septembre !! Bravo et merci, c'était formidable. Mme Giroud

  • Paula

    We loved the boat ! great location, on edge of old city, yet with a supermarket close by. Nice bath ! Thank you Christiaan.

  • Robert

    Absolutely fantastic houseboat - bags of space with wonderful retro furniture and great location.

  • Michael

    Very nice place. We enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam

  • Werner

    Sehr schönes Hausboot das unsere Erwartungen voll zufriedenstellte . Auch der Besitzer der uns das Hausboot zeigte und uns die Schlüssel übergab wahr super nett und freundlich.

  • Anne

    Wir hatten 4 tolle Tage auf dem Hausboot. Es hat richtig Spaß gemacht und wir können das Hausboot nur weiterempfehlen.

  • Domagoj

    The best accommodation I have ever been to - by far! Nice cozy environment on the peaceful Amsterdam Southern canal belt, with plenty of space and cool furnishing... Great kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and a huge living room... Also, awesome "terrace" outside the boat where you can enjoy every morning. Basically, to stay in a boat is an adventure itself - but don't worry - it doesn't swing due to the water :) The only weird thing is the lack of curtains, but that's Amsterdam culture and a good thing to wake you up early so you can have more time for your activities :) As recommended as possible! See you again, definitely!

  • Stuart

    We loved the boat and the location and we had no problems in arrival & departure. The place inside was clean and the linen prepared. We have just two comments which I think are related to the fact that the owner was not there and had asked a well meaning but not very informed friend to look after the boat for him. Our main problem was that we wanted to cook and we couldn't understand the cooker nor find any instructions and Falko, although very keen to try and help, had no idea how it worked and had never used it. It was also a case of spring catching them unaware as the sitting out area was unkempt and covered in autumn leaves and we had to clear a space and wash down the outside furniture ourselves to sit outside in the sunshine! This being said we had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to use City Mundo again to rent a houseboat or barge in Amsterdam and will recommend you to our friends. Thank you Stuart Fenwick

  • Ming-Chi

    It is such a pleasure to stay in a boat in the city of canals, waking up to ducks quackling and cars sounded so distant. The facilities are very sufficient (including dish washer) and internet access, which is better than most other land facilities. Highly recommended.

  • Lucia

    This is really the ideal accomodation. The boat is located in a quite road, there is a supermarket across the canal, and the tram (line 4) stops less than 50mt away. The location is perfect to visit the city. I recommend it strongly!!!

  • Virginie

    Séjour formidable. Péniche trés agréable, à deux pas de notre resto préféré le Vooges et du marché AlbertCuyp. Nous y retournons en Janvier pour revivre l'expérience sous la neige. Merci à Christiaan.

  • Marie

    L'accueil du propriétaire de la péniche a été très chaleureux. Les photos et la visite virtuelle reflètent parfaitement l'ambiance qui règne. l'emplacement est parfait. Un tramway nous dépose à 100 mètres directement de Centraal Staion en moins d'1/4 d'heure. On peut tout faire à pieds ou à vélo de là en quelques minutes. Parcking à vélo juste devant la péniche (loués chez Mac Bike). Péniche très lumineuse, spacieuse et confortable. Par beau temps la terrasse est également parfaite, il y a même un barbecue. le propriétaire nous a même donné l'accès à sa connexion wifi. La baignoire est immense, c'est divin de s'y prélasser après de longues journées de visite de la ville. On aurait aimé y rester encore un peu...

  • Emma

    Thanks for a lovely stay! The houseboat was just perfect, a really exciting way to stay in Amsterdam. The facilities were ideal. The location of the boat is lovely; close enough to the essential shops but quiet enough to be relaxing. Everything we'd hoped for and more!

  • Silas Kondrup

    High Class Accomodation! We had four days in the most beautiful surroundings possible. Definately worth a visit, and not our last trip to lovely Amsterdam and Christiaans boat. ++++++

  • Madeleine

    Lovely accommodation and very helpful host. Loads of space for our family of 4 and useful transport links on the doorstep. Very enjoyable holiday accommodation.

  • Solia

    This houseboat is absolute wonderful! Very well furnished and clean, bright, and well located. If you are looking for a charming and nice place to stay in Amsterdam, you have to try it! His host Christian will wait for you with all his kindness.

  • Anja

    guten tag, es war eine schöne zeit auf diesem wundervollen hausboot. Es ist gut ausgestattet und man kann sich nur wohlfühlen. Christian ist ein sehr hilfsbereiter vermieter. wir können uns nur bei allen die an der vermietung beteiligt waren bedanken. thank you

  • Elvira

    Das Schiff war sehr gut augestattet. Modern und trotzdem sehr gemütlich. Die kleine Terasse war leider zwischen Boot und Straße (kein Blick auf's Wasser) Perfekt wäre noch eine Terrasse für 4 Personen an der Wasserseite. Der Besitzer war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Mit der Straßenbahn innerhalb ca. 10 Minuten von Amsterdam Centraal aus zu erreichen. Da direkt nach uns keine Nachmieter kamen konnten wir das Boot am Abreisetag bis zum Nachmittag nutzen. Die Lage am Rand des Zentrums hat was für sich. Wenn wir auf dem Boot waren, waren wir etwas raus aus dem allgemeinen Trubel, der über die Pfingsfeiertage wohl besonders groß ist.

  • Anna

    We absolutely loved this boat - it was even nicer than it appeared on the pictures - very comfortable, well equipped and everything worked - also it was in a great location - straddling the southern canal belt and the Pijp - not touristy areas but very interesting with lots of nice places for shopping and eating out. We would thoroughly recommend this boat to anyone else and thanks to our charming host Christian.
