    Great location, surprisingly quiet. Host Willem is even greater, such a lovable character doing his utmost to help you out. Boat (room) itself is very basic, but very comfy and pragmatic, interior reminds me of a Finnish cottage to be honest - this is a compliment by the way. Spent 5 nights here and couldn\'t have chosen a better place to stay, reasonably priced as well. Will return, for sure.

    Wir hatten eine tolle Woche auf diesem Hausboot. Die Lage ist perfekt und das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis super. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder! William ist ein sehr sympathischer Mensch mit einer ordentlichen Portion Humor. Er beantwortet gerne Fragen und hat so einige Geschichten auf Lager. :)

    We stayed at this houseboat at the beginning of the June and we liked it a lot! We didn`t need to use bykes to get to the centre or shops or restaurants - this houseboat has very comfortable placement. Even it is almost in the centre, still there are no crowd streets behind - beautiful! We appreciate houseboat`s inside too!) Room was perfect for two of us. There is everything you need and you can have time of your life there) Most of all we liked the master of boat - Willem! We could ask for any advise - he always helped us. He is an interesting person with brilliant sense of humor - it was a pleasure to speak with him) As it is my second stay on this boat, I`m sure that my third time will be here too.

  • Torsten

    Das Zimmer ist leider sehr verlebt und muffig.

  • Josee

    J\'ai bien aimé notre séjour. L\'endroit est bien situé pour explorer la ville, faire des emplettes, mais assez tranquille pour bien dormir la nuit, très agreable de voir passer tous ces bateaux près de nous. Toutes les commodités annoncées étaient là: literie, serviettes, savon, wifi. Belle cohabitation avec notre hote.

  • Tuija

    The place is cozy, and the location is perfect, in a quiet corner at a walking distance from both the center and De Pijp area. A good supermarket, coffee shops and restaurants are near. The host is friendly. We warmly recommend this accommodation.

  • Barbara

    There is no better way to feel Amsterdam than the house boats. The host is cheerful, kind and helpful. Accommodation is modest but O. K. Close to all sights. Also nearby is the metro station and the supermarket. Good choice for the first visit to Amsterdam.

  • Hans

    Quiet, picturesque, no-nonsensical. A unique spot, untainted by tourism but right in the middle of Everything. Not recommendable if you\'re allergic to (the smell of) nicotine.

  • Maria Francesca

    We loved our stay in the houseboat. The room was comfy and warm, just 10 minute front the city center.

  • Katarina

    We had nice time . Houseboat accomodation was nice. Spacious with well equipped kitchen and hot shower. The location is perfect for a first time visit since it is 15 minutes walk from central station. In any direction you may go, city center is a minute walk away.

  • Skyttä

    We had a lovely, sunshine days at Amsterdam. This houseboat have a good location. Metro and markets are near. Host Willem is nice and helpful. We felt very welcome. Wiev to canal from room is perfect. But if you are looking a room full of luxury, this isn´t for you. Here you need a little camping-spirit ;) Allthoug this was a perfect for our needs. We love Amsterdam and miss it allready.

  • Griestop

    Wir hatten ein paar wundervolle Tage in Amsterdam. Unsere Unterkunft entsprach unseren Erwartungen. Sie ist Centrum nah und hat Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe. Auch war der Vermieter sehr hilfsbereit. für uns genau richtig.

  • Dena Popova

    To be honest it was quite a disappointment for us. We had planned a calm and romantic weekend in a rustic houseboat, but in reality Willem with his list of strict house rules (some of which didn’t make sense for a person who claims to have been accommodating tourists for 20 years) and the really substandard shared bathroom made us decided to move out earlier than planned. Having said all this, the boat is located in a nice place, there’s supermarket nearby. And last but not least, it was nice to wake up and look at a bunch of ducks just outside of the window while having breakfast.

  • Victor

    Great location and all facilities you\'d expect from a houseboat. The owner is very friendly, and house rules are reasonable. Recommended to those who\'d like to explore Amsterdam.

  • Henri

    Excellent séjour dans ce housboat. Très tranquille. Le propriétaire qui habite sur le bateau, mais très discret et surtout disponible pour des renseignements, des conseils. On est à une vingtaine de minutes à pied du centre de la vieille ville. Boulangerie et supermarché à proximité. Pour le rapport qualité-prix très, très acceptable.

  • Bernd

    We had a romantic birthday time overthere in Amsterdam\'s river and the host was so nice, he even prepared some balloons. Simple and quiet housing, great for a couple, with some supermarkets nearby in the city centre, yet not crowded.

  • Elliott

    Willem is a great host on a very basic boat. This is meant positively. We are repeat happy customers. We don\'t need a private bathroom or a TV or a thermostat on the heat (you manually set it & will rapidly realize its lowest setting can turn the 1 room rental into a sauna).The rented space = the left-most quarter of the boat as it appears in this listing\'s picture. It is clean, small and well situated. Aside from occasionally hearing the bathroom fan indicate otherwise you may get the feeling you have the boat to yourself.Do Willem a favor & draw a pitcher of water for middle of the night use: the pipes make a racket on his side of the boat & like most humans, he prefers quiet after midnight.

  • Marta

    Everything went well. Citymundo helped us during ali the reservation process and the houseboat was just as described. No BAD surprises... we had. lots of fun.

  • Iztok

    It is forbidden to smoke from 00:00 to 08:00AM. It doesn\'t say that on your website. The kitchen is missing some dishes, only two that are useful, so you better bring them with you. There is also no oven/toaster/grill, which would be nice.Other than that, we had a pleasant stay.

  • Ute

    Schöne ausreichende Unterkunft in Amsterdam. Zentral, aber ruhig gelegen. Alles Prima. Vermieter war für Fragen immer freundlich da. Die Einrichtung ist alt und einfach, aber völlig in Ordnung. Preislich gesehen ein absoluter Hit. Ich finde nur sehr schade das die Unterkunft doch sehr schmuddelig ist. Nur weil es billig ist, kann es trotzdem sauberer sein. Ich bin echt nicht pingelig. Sonst alles gut!

  • Tony

    enjoyed my stay aboard willams houseboat ,had three nights aboard the Zodiac with my mate . if you are on a tight budget then this boat will cater for that as it has cooking facilities ,with shops no more then a fifteen minute walk away , . the boat is also no more than a fifteen walk away from the centre of the city the lezplein . if you need any directions willam will be able to point you in the right direction ,as he is very knowledgeable about the city. our room had a great view along the canal and the room we stayed in although a little run down had a nice feel and character about ita big plus is that you can smoke in it.

  • Oxana

    We liked our stay from the first minute in Holland. Accomodation had a suitable placement near the center and metro station. Everyhing was in good condition. The owner was kind and ready to solve all our problems. Thanks for our stay! Good luck!

  • Waltraud

    Waren super tage,das hausboot ist ok, das der besitzer auch dort wohnt und das selbe wc und bad benützt stört überhaupt nicht,ist ein netter angenehmer lustiger mensch,jederzeit würden wir wieder dort wohnen.

  • Phil

    We stayed here for 10 nights at the end of Sept to celebrate my wife\'s 50th.We were on a budget and these accommodations more than met our expectations.Williem was a great host, full of good advice and some great story\'s.Williem was very knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam & all of Europe,which I just loved. We felt very safe everywhere we went at any time of the day.We were 3min walk to banking m/c,5min to (2) coffee shops and some great eatery\'s, less ten 10 to grocery store, close to several museums. 20 minutes from the Red Light district and central station. Lots of sights to see in Amsterdam...many many coffee shops...walked everywhere. A must is the canal boat tour. A very liberal city which we just loved! If you\'re wanting to bring Williem a host gift he LOVES Vegimite, Promite and Merimite...he also likes Kraft Peanut Butter. Johnny Walker Red Label.It was a trip of a life time & Williem & City Mundo...made our trip smooth with no issues at ALL Thank you Phil & Barb

  • Sergey

    It was perfectly! All days and all nights!

  • Sarena

    The pictures do not do this accommodation justice. It is so cute and cozy, on a quiet dead end street. Willem was a great host. many thanks!

  • Stuart

    so i visited here from the 11th - 15th November. the owner was polite and talkative room had everything you need: fridge,hob,microwave grill thing, pots pans, knives and forks and tv. the toilet shower is rather small(im 6ft 3)but was clean, get some bread so you can feed the ducks in the morning also free wifi.. also the host LOVES peanut butter so i gather anyone staying that brought him some would be treated even better. lastly it does look better than the pictures show. name of the boat is zodiac for those who get lost

  • Elliott

    Willem's boat is cute, cozy, a little rustic (no sofa or arm chair, so you use the bed or dining table if you want to read), but well equipped, clean and well located. He has 3 units in the boat: his own + 2 that he rents out. Willem was great as a host - very available for help, but not hovering. He also is very quiet as neighboring tenant. It was an extremely handy surprise that WiFi was available. The kitchen was fully stocked with adequate pots and pans & dishware. (ok, the can opener needs to be replaced, but I bet he's done so by now, since I mentioned it to him). oh - and the boat didn't rock.

  • Birger

    Nice and reasonable accommodation in quiet and cosy neighbourhood close to city center. Host is very nice and helpful. Thank you Willem. Thumbs up!

  • Luc et Anne

    super séjour chez captain Willem... bel endroit propre et calme. Willem est accueillant et très discret. Merci Citymundo.

  • Jean Luc

    Super séjour dans un bel endroit. Cap'tain WIllem adorable. Merci Citymundo. Luc et anne

  • Henrik

    We have had a wounderful time in this accomodation and Willem has been a wounderful host and captain. I will come back to his place for sure and wish you all a brilliant summer. Cheers,Henrik

  • Nikolai

    Die Unterkunft ist wie auf den Bildern bereits zu sehen sehr einfach und ohne jeden Schnick-Schnack, aber gemütlich eingerichtet. Es liegt sehr zentral und ist zweifelsohne für den Preis konkurenzlos. Einziger Wermutstropfen sind altersbedingte Schönheitsfehler. Manch einer würde sich vielleicht auch etwas gründlichere Reinigung der Zimmer wünschen - meinen persönlichen Fokus aber hatte der Blick aufs Wasser durch die großen Fenster. Hier zeigte sich auch der Zweck vom Vorhang am Bett ;) Ich kann die Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen

  • Liane

    We had very nice days in our accommodation. A simple uncomplicated stay near the center. Mister Willem is a gentle and nice host who was always ready for a joke as well as for good information about the city and its way of living. Thanks a lot! We will come again :))

  • Bobbi

    What an excellent stay! Willem is an excellent host. He provided us with information to best enjoy the city and we had a library in our room. The location is very nice, far enough away from Centraal Station so that it's not a tourist haven. Right near the Jewish Quarter. We will stay here again. The facilities were very nice. We were very happy with the kitchenette! Comfortable accommodations, a great host, and a great price.

  • Ulrich et Lucile (Lyon)

    Bonjour à tous, Tout d'abord un grand merci à Willem et l'accueil au sein de sa jolie péniche. Super bien situé, pièce en commun très propore. De plus, nous etions en voiture et toujours de la place à coté de la péniche! Ayant déja visiter Amterdam(hotel)plusieurs fois, je peux vous assurer que chez Willem cela n'a rien à voir... Passez lui le bonjour de notre part !!

  • Wolfgang

    I was in A`dam in January 2011. I really enjoyed my stay at the houseboat. We were 3 guys and used to stay 3 nights. The rooms were clean and big enough. With rooms I mean we had the one room were can see the kitchen, the meal table and so on (this was more the living area) and an additional room which was only used for sleeping (but there you have also a wardrobe, TV, desk and so on). As mentioned in the discribtion the useage of the bath has to be shared with the renter - it sound harder than it really is. Two be honest, who goes showering more than two times a day... The bath itself is a little bit spartanic but there`s everything you need. One big plus point is the renter himself, Willem. Really a funny cool guy - he helped us when we had any questions - doesn't matter about what - where`s the next supermarket, where to go for good and cheap weed, where are the best sightseeing spots... So as conclusion I can really recomment this accomodation. I will look for it when I go the next time to A'dam. Wish everyone a nice stay! ;-)

  • Isabelle

    Nous avons passé un très bon long week-end à Amsterdam ! La péniche est très bien placée, nous avons presque tout visité à pied. La chambre est très simple. Nous n'avons pas utilisé la cuisine car il faisait tellement beau dehors ! Le linge de lit est un peu usé et la literie un peu molle... Mais cela n'a pas gâché notre plaisir !

  • Hanna

    Es war wirklich grandios auf diesem Hausboot. Zentrumsnähe und einen netten Vermieter zu einem unschlagbaren Preis, wir kommen gerne wieder.

  • Mauricio

    Great place, nice and comfortable. Willem is a friendly and discrete host. The best way to experience Amsterdam.

  • Pierre-Naïm

    Willem est quelqu'un de gentil discret et accueillant. Sa petite houseboat est un havre de paix en plein cœur de Amsterdam! Super séjour à refaire sans hésitation! Big up

  • Thiago

    We had such a great time! The room was very cozy, quiet and clean. Our host, Willen, so kind!!! Thanks for a great stay.

  • Olga D.

    -----Hi City mundo! I enjoyed Amsterdam and the house boat. It was really great feeling to live on the "gracht". The host was very friendly and helpful. I can for sure recommend staying there!

  • Rosi

    Amsterdam ist eine Reise wert, besonders, wenn man so eine tolle Unterkunft hat!!!! Einfach, aber gemütlich eingerichtet, alles sauber, alles da. Der Besitzer super freundlich und immer hilfsbereit. Kann ich bestens weiter empfehlen, zumal man nur 10 Minuten bis in die City benötigt. Liebe Grüße,

  • Pascale, Jean- Paul, Stanislas et Éléonore

    merci tout s'est bien passé bonne réception de notre hôte Willem nous a tres bien acceuilli et nous avons été très bien pendant 3 jours il nous a indiqué les bonnes adresses, a été très discret et nous avons trouvé que d'habiter avec lui avait de grands avantages tels que la sécurité de notre chambre ; nous recommandons vivement cette péniche à tous les amoureux d' amsterdam et lui envoyons nos meilleurs sentiments.

  • Judith

    Die Unterkunft war genau wie beschrieben. Sehr einfach aber günstig und zentral. Willem, der Host ist sehr freundlich und angenehm.
