  • Christophe Bousquet  - 

    Emplacement idéal pour visite de la ville avec location de vélo tout proche. Bon accueil malgré une arrivée très tardive. Très bien pour un séjour court.

    Beautiful houseboat, excellent location, view. Very recommend

  • Raffael Hofacker  - 

    Das Hausboot war perfekt für mich und meiner Freundin. Sehr zentral an Supermärkten,Bars und Restaurants. Der Zustand des Hausbootes ist sehr sauber und draußen kann man rauchen auf der Terasse. Mit diesem Hausboot macht man nichts falsch. Könnte immer wieder Urlaub dort machen.

  • Natascha  - 

    We had a great time! The owner was very nice, friendly and helpful. The flat was clean and beautiful to live in. The location couldn\'t be any better! Calm area, very close to the center. We would book here anytime again! It was the best stay!

  • Emma English  - 

    Love this houseboat, this was the 2nd time we stayed here and we will defiantly be back again. Great location and the best bed ever!

  • Sophie Tournois  - 

    Nous avons passé quelques jours de rêve dans cette péniche. L\'emplacement est idéal, dans un secteur calme et typique, à 15 minutes de la gare à pied. Tout était propre, la décoration simple et soignée, la literie confortable. C\'est la première fois que nous réservions par ce site mais nous sommes entièrement satisfaits.

  • Mark Stevens  - 

    We had a wonderful but short stay in Amsterdam one of my favorite cities to visit. The barge accomodation was very well situated. We were very happy with this cozy simple rooms. It was well appointed although I did point out to the owner an issue which he assured me would be addressed promptly. A very good stay. Thank you. Mark

  • Franca  - 

    Sejour agreable, correspondant à nos attentes. Péniche très bien équipée, cadre idyllique, et tres bien située. À refaire sans hésitation !

  • Katrina Zawawi  - 

    We stayed in this very cosy houseboat. We were looking for a houseboat a little bigger, but the prices have gone up, and therefore settled for one smaller. We found this houseboat from Citymundo site. Initial reactions were, it was a little small, but we soon got used to it. However, the boat is in an excellent location. It was lovely hearing the bells chyme from across the river. The boat is next to another boat, so people did have to cross over our boat to get to the next one. It wasn\'t invasive. The Albert Heijn shop is less than 5 minutes walk away, and so are many other shops too. You are right in the centre, but it\'s actually quite quiet. I enjoyed the cosy bed compartment with portholes looking out on the river. Staying in there with the slight rocking of the boat to fall asleep to was a peace of heaven for me. I love the sensation of slight movement. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Definitely recommended.

  • Sebastian  - 

    Alles wunderbar. Sehr schönes Hausboot mit günstiger Lage.

  • I.W.  - 

    Super Lage. Sehr geräumig. Aber leider ein wenig schmudelig.

  • Philipp Lambertz  - 

    My girlfriend and i had a great stay in Amsterdam. The houseboat is a 5 min walk, away from the \"de Waag\", wich is just next to the red light district, so really in the city center. Even the houseboat is very close to the center, the street next to the boat is quiet and not busy. We found everything as described. The only thing we missed out in the description was the second boat behind our boat.

  • Billat Patrick  - 

    Dormir dans une péniche au coeur d\'Amsterdam, quel beau rêve devenu réalité. un accueil chaleureux, un logement confortable et de bon goût nous ont permis de profiter pleinement de la ville.

  • Ines Heuft  - 

    We have had an absolut great time in Amsterdam. The boat was very clean and sweet, very near to the center and in a nice neighbourhood. Thanks.

  • Michael and Bertolina Hallam  - 

    We were very satisfied with our houseboat on the Oude Schans Arrival and departure went very smoothly. The houseboat was clean and comfortable and sufficient for our needs. The night before we left there was a thunderstorm and we lost TV and wifi connection. The houseboat was centrally located and everything was within walking distance. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Amsterdam!

  • Tom Ruxton  - 

    My two teenage daughters and I had a wonderful three days in Amsterdam staying on Houseboat L10726. Booking through CityMondo was easy and cheaper than an apartment or B&B. The boat is only a few minutes walk from the train station and easy to find. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was on the boat. My daughters shared a large double bed and I used the comfortable sofa-bed in the lounge. Self catering was easy with good shops nearby. Everything we wanted to see in the city was within walking distance or we could have hired bikes just round the corner. I\'d definitely want to stay there again.

  • Beatrix  - 

    Wenn wir mal wieder nach Amsterdam fahren, werden wir wieder ein Hausboot mieten, es war einfach super. Die Vermieter waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Auf dem Boot war, zu unserer Überraschung wirklich alles vorhanden und die Schlafkajüte war sooo gemütlich mit den Bullaugen. Die Dusche ist zwar ein bisschen klein, aber das tut keinen Abbruch.Alle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in der Nähe, auch alle Sehenswürdigkeiten. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Danke auch nochmal an Judith, die uns sehr nett empfangen hat. Jederzeit wieder.

  • Katja Hatzenbühler  - 

    Wir haben im Mai 4 wundervolle Tage auf dem Hausboot verbracht. Alles hat super geklappt und war genau wie in der Beschreibung: nur wenige Gehminuten vom Bahnhof, leicht zu finden, freundlicher Empfang, alles sehr schön und sauber (abgesehen von den Ablageflächen in der genialen Schlafkajüte). Das Boot ist gut eingerichtet, alles was man so braucht. Nur Achtung mit dem Kopf an der Einstiegstreppe (Aua). Toll war, dass wir die Fahrräder an Bord mieten konnten. Diese haben wir die ganze Zeit genutzt, was optimal war. Mit dem Rad macht es sehr viel Spaß und wirklich alles ist gut erreichbar. Trotz des Trubels auf den Straßen, sind die Amsterdamer die entspanntesten Verkehrsteilnehmer der Welt. Ein kleiner Tipp noch: Museumskarten vorbestellen, sonst steht man stundenlang in der Warteschlange. So haben wir aber einen Grund wiederzukommen .... :-)

  • Jacquot  - 

    nous avons été trés content de la péniche, seulement à 10 mn à pied de la gare et proche de toute commoditées. Endroit trés calme et propriétaire sympa. A recommander absolument.

  • Louisa Garratt  - 

    Stayed for 3 nights and it was fantastic! Perfect central location, lovely accommodation, cosy and romantic! Would definitely stay here again on any visit to Amsterdam!

  • Kara Schmidt  - 

    We really enjoyed staying on the houseboat. The location was convenient, very close to the center of town. The houseboat was very clean and looked as it was described. The only thing that we didn\'t realize was that we were only renting a studio portion of the whole boat, but that wasn\'t a problem at all.

  • Jean-Marc Simiand  - 

    - very nice place: very beautiful houseboat- kitchen and heating:perfect- surrounding: also perfect, no noise, except bell tower !- with duvet and non real sheet, question:really healthy or not? Veary good.Thank you.Greetings.

  • Piotr  - 

    Perfect location and accomodating hosts - how could you ask for more..piotr

  • Hayley louise Reynolds  - 

    Stunning boat and very central location loved the city and will be returning!

  • Jan & Sera  - 

    Das Hausboot ist toll und vor allem die kleine Koje mit Blick aufs Wasser! Es ist alles da, was man braucht! Sogar Fahrräder konnten wir uns direkt beim Host leihen (zum super Preis!). Damit kommt man überall total fix hin und nicht weit weg ist eine Einkaufsstraße. Man ist nicht direkt in der hektischen Innenstadt aber zu Fuß innerhalb Minuten im Redlight District und per Rad schnell in den großen Einkaufsstraßen oder in den kleinen Nebenstraßen. Der Bahnhof ist fußläufig 15 Minuten entfernt. Auch die beiden Mädels die uns das Hausboot gezeigt und uns verabschiedet haben waren sehr nett. Die Hausbootnachbarin gibt auch ein paar Insidertipps ;) Ein perfekter Urlaub zum (fast) ersten Mal Amsterdam, für ein junges Pärchen!

  • Stefan  - 

    Sehr schöne und zentrumsnahe Lage des Hausboots. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Cafés und Bars sind in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen.Herrlich ist es auf dem Deck des Hausboots zu sitzen und dem Treiben auf den Grachten zuzusehen.Das Hausboot ist komplett ausgestattet. Leider ist das Bad sehr klein und das Bett für große Menschen nur bedingt geeignet. Auch die Sauberkeit ließ zu wünschen übrig.

  • Andrea Chiacchio  - 

    Siamo stati benissimo nella houseboat, i ragazzi dell\'agenzia sono gentilissimi, se arrivi più tardi del previsto ti mandano un messaggio con un codice per trovare le chiavi e il giorno dopo quando lo desideri vengono per ritirare i soldi che rimangono. La casa é splendida e accogliente non avevo mai visto una cosa cosí, fornita di tutte le comoditá a 5 min dal centro e a 200m dal supermarket, la prossima volta che torno ad Amsterdam spero di poterci tornare.

  • Hannah Ross  - 

    Lovely houseboat with all the facilitites you could need including, wifi, tv a little combi oven and hob to cook on. There\'s even a laptop there if you don\'t take your own! The TV has an SD card port so you can watch films after a long day out. Very convenient location if you like walking, we only took the tram once or twice. I would really recommend this houseboat.

  • Manfred Unterluggauer  - 

    Die Lage des Hausbootes ist wirklich Super. Man ist sehr nah im Zentrum. Das Hausboot ist in einem sehr guten Zustand. Die Übergabe hat gut geklappt und die Vermieter sehr flexibel. Wir hatten sehr schöne Tage in Amsterdam .

  • Chris & Dave Dodge  - 

    We had a wonderful time on this little boat. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed watching the view from the port holes. The stairs are very steep and would not work for people who are unsteady, it needs at least some type of support/railing. Better instructions for the coffee pot and washing machine would be helpful. We enjoyed our stay and if we were younger would stay here again. Another important thing is that the neighborhood is quiet at night.

  • Chris Mckee  - 

    A great alternative to a regular hotel room. The interior was great (ie. kitchen, living room, sleeping quarters etc.). We loved sitting on the bow, in the sunshine with a bottle of wine, watching all the boats go by. Brilliant!

  • Alberto Santucci And Anindita Saihl Bantwal  - 

    The house boat was very comfortable and cosy, and the lady who was present when we checked in was lovely. It was one of the best places we stayed at and was the best part of our holiday :D

  • Michael Norman  - 

    This houseboat is fantastic. Beautiful location and a great space. I can highly recommend this houseboat for a great stay in Amsterdam. We loved it here and will certainly return.

  • Kirsty Clark  - 

    We stayed at this houseboat for four nights. It had everything we needed for our stay - kitchen equipped for simple meals, comfortable bed, wifi, a safe and washer/dryer. The location is good, we walked everywhere in Amsterdam and did not need to use public transport within the city. The area is quiet and the canal is lovely. If we ever return to Amsterdam I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

  • Julie McDonald  - 

    Que peut on rêver de mieux pour visiter la petite Venise du nord que de séjourner dans un House boat. Cet endroit est tout simplement incontournable car il fait partie du charme du voyage. Nous n'avons qu'une envie : y revenir.

  • Daniela Flechl  - 

    Wir wurden für die Schlüsselübergabe schon erwartet, hat super funktioniert. Hausboot in guter Lage, nahe dem Hauptbahnhof. Hausboot war picobello sauber und gut ausgestattet. Mehr als ausreichend Platz für 2 Personen. Und die süsse Schlafkajüte ist echt der Hit! :-))

  • Barbara Mertens  - 

    yes - this boat has a problem: it's not mine! :-) we enjoyed a wonderful weekend onboard the "avontuur" and it won't be the last. everything was as comfortable you may wish and anything you need is there, whether it is a hairdryer or dishes or computer or tv.... we cannot recommend enough to stay on this boat during your holidays in amsterdam. thank you also to judith, who was so kind and nice. be sure: we will come back!

  • Christian Unger  - 

    "... ein hausboot mit viel Atmosphäre. Es hat uns gut gefallen! Zu loben ist auch die komplette Ausstattung."

  • Françoise Pillet  - 

    Nous sommes entièrement satisfaites de notre séjour : accueil ponctuel et chaleureux de Judith, péniche extrêmement bien située, dans un quartier calme tout en étant proche du centre, spacieuse et bien aménagée. Nous la recommandons à tous ceux qui veulent passer un super séjour dans cette ville géniale.

  • Sue and Rob  - 

    This Houseboat was a gem! Having researched many sites I came upon CityMundo. Upon checking out the photos of this houseboat and area, I was set to book for 3 nights. The House boat is easy to find. Judith greeted us promptly with smiles and showed us around. This was truly everything I had dreamed it would be. Wonderful little kitchette, spacious floor area. TV, Free Internet,even a mini washer/dryer and most important a Comfortable bed which was so cozy and cute. It was great to come back to our quiet area after a hectic day of sightseeing and crowds to prepare our dinner, eat on the deck and wind down watching other boats pass by. The tower is right across from the boat and it became our marker for finding our home away from home. Supermarket/ING direct bank machine is within a 5 minute walk and Great location to Central station. As well the price I found was very resonable. Rent this houseboat for your dream vacation. You will bring home many happy memories.

  • Jindrich Srejma  - 

    Sehr schöne Unterkunft nähe von Zentrum Amsterdam und freundliche Besitzerin... das Hausboot hat alles was Man braucht. wir haben die Zeit in Amsterdam wirklich genossen. mit freundliche Grüsse

  • Ned Bakelman  - 

    great location; quiet; essentially in the center of town; safe; clean and well kept - highly recommended!! we had a great time

  • Karin Ehlert  - 

    Wir haben als Paar ein paar Tage rund um Sylvester in Amsterdam verbracht. Das Boot haben wir genau so vorgefunden wie beschrieben. Zu zweit ist dieses Boot perfekt, überschaubar und doch geräumig. Ein Traum ist das Bett mit Blick aus dem Bullauge. Die Übergabe wurde von einer netten jungen Frau gemacht und hat bestens geklappt. Absolut optimal ist die Lage des Bootes, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten in Amsterdam sind zu Fuß zu erreichen und torzdem liegt das Boot ruhig vom Allstadtlärm. Gerne kommen wir wieder, vielleicht im Sommer um auch das Deck zu nutzen.

  • Claire & Barry  - 

    Had a very pleasant stay on this boat and would most definitely recommend it to friends. We stayed here in February and temperatures were -8 degrees but the boat was still nice and warm! Loved the idea of staying on the canal rather than a standard hotel, especially when it was much better value than a tiny hotel room. Very close to the centre and the train station which made it very convenient. There's also a large shopping centre about 10 mins walk away which was great for picking up waffles and croissants for breakfast!

  • Melanie Kopp  - 

    This houseboot is really wonderful. It was pretty wonderful to spend our time on it. waking up and see the water, was so fantatic. All you need, like a supermarket or the centrum is quickly available. We will come back for sure.

  • Elisabeth Jetzinger  - 

    Alles super gewesen. Wir können das Hausboot und die Organisation nur weiterempfehlen. Tolle zentrale Lage und trotzdem ruhig.

  • İlker/Turkiye  - 

    This was my first visit to Amsterdam, and this choice made my visit unforgetable. Boat was comfortable, useful, cute, clean and near to everywhere here u want. The owners were also helpful and hospitable. This boat will be my first choice for my second visit. Thanks to owners and Citymundo.

  • Sara Cooperberg  - 

    We stayed in the houseboat L10726 for 3 nights on October 2011. We are very satisfied with the accomodation. It was exactly what we were hoping for when we booked it. The location is perfect very close to the center of the city but in a very quiet street. The house is very clean and warm. The only problem is that there was not fast internet connection. We definetly suggest this houseboat to other people as well. Hope we come back some day. Thank you City Mundo

  • Eumi Wymbs  - 

    This cute studio was the perfect houseboat for me and my hubby to celebrate our 15th anniv... cozy and romantic with all the amenities in a great location! We made a leisurely breakfast every morning, enjoyed wine and stroopwaffles on the deck in the late afternoon after exploring the city on the bikes that are available to rent. There was a problem with the hot water heater but it was immediately resolved once i called them. Staying in a houseboat is such a fun way to experience Amsterdam!

  • Jutta Sturm  - 

    Sehr schöne Unterkunft. Gut gelegen, nahe Central und doch ruhig. Sehr gut ausgestattet, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Kaffeemaschine, Bügeleisen etc. Vermieterin war pünktlich zur Schlüsselübergabe da. Sehr toll, dass man sich vor Ort Fahrräder mieten konnte. Auch Schlüsselübergabe am Abreisetag reibungslos. Immer wieder gern.

  • Klaus Michler  - 

    Simply perfect. Nice hosts, great location, cool boat. We were more the happy! Thx again.

  • Julia and Dmitry from Russia  - 

    We had a really great time on this boat!!! It has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay, both long and short. It has the cosiest bedroom we have ever slept in with portholes looking out the canal. It is a pity there is no bath, but it's ok. Thank you Citymundo. It was pleasant working with you.

  • Francisco Lopez  - 

    The travel was beatiful and the houseboat and citymundo are the best.....

  • Anja Barth  - 

    Es waren ganz tolle Tage in Amsterdam. Das Boot ist sehr zentral gelegen und liebevoll eingerichtet. Am meisten genossen haben wir das Frühstück an Deck und den herrlichen Blick Richtung Hafen. Wir kommen liebend gerne wieder!!!

  • Sara Soto  - 

    Everything about this houseboat was perfect! It was the ideal size for a couple (although a family with smaller children could also fit comfortably), and having a kitchen was a bonus. The location of the boat is possibly our favorite part- it is about a 5-10 minute walk from the craziness of Dam Square & the very touristy areas surrounding the Red Light District. As New Yorkers, it was like staying the perfect distance from Times Square: close enough to see & get to everything, but so quiet & peaceful when you want it to be. The proximity to Nieuwmarkt- just a short walk across the canal- makes grocery shopping & restaurant searching a breeze. Having wi-fi onboard was a tremendous help in cutting down on our visits to internet cafes. When we come back to Amsterdam, we will most certainly stay here!

  • Ines Viertel  - 

    Das Hausboot hat uns gut gefallen, alles Wichtige ist vorhanden und in gepflegtem Zustand. Besonders toll ist das Bett mit Aussicht. Wir haben besonders das Treiben auf der Gracht vom Bootsdeck aus genossen, wo man gemütlich sitzen kann. Wir empfehlen diese Unterkunft weiter und haben bei unseren Freunden schon viel Werbung gemacht. Besser als im Hotel!!!

  • Donny Krause  - 

    The room was nice and very different in in every way you can imagine.For staying in Amsterdam i wouldnt do it any other way. The staff was attentive to any problem you might encounter. And very flexible with your arrangement needs. Good neighborhood close to just about everything in Amsterdam.With peaceful evenings on the deck, its the perfect getaway from the bussle of the District and all the tourist attractions. We will be back. Thanks to all the hosts and city mundo staff.

  • Indra Hein  - 

    It has been my second time and I enjoy staying on this boat! The location is perfect, everything you need, like bakery, supermarket, new market, is in walking distance and now they have bikes as well! We enjoyed it and will come back!

  • Kathi Preppner  - 

    Sehr gut ausgestattete Wohnung in einem schönen Boot - am gemütlichsten ist die große Schlafkoje. Ansonsten ist alles da, was man brauchen könnte: Gasherd, Kaffeemaschine, Fernseher und Internet. Die Lage ist super: absolut zentral, aber in einem entspannten Wohnviertel. Perfekt also!

  • stephanie MARTIN-FENOUILLET  - 

    le logement était parfait, encore mieux que sur les photos qui ne sont pas à jour (la déco a été refaite). Trés fonctionnel et confortable. Les hôtes nous ont trés bien reçu et tout c'est trés bien passé.

  • Aaron  - 

    The boat was very clean and comfortable, with a welcoming host and beautiful views of the Oudeschans canal. We greatly appreciated having the small kitchen, as well as access to the internet via the laptop computer. The location was also wonderful: in a safe neighborhood and within easy walking distance of the city center, a number of restaurants, cafes, and a grocery store. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Giuliana Zakani  - 

    Die Unterkunft hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Das Ferienelebnis wurde durch das Wohnen auf dem Schiff komplett. Das Studio ist sehr gut und wohnlich eingerichtet. Die Lage ist perfekt, nahe allen Sehenswürdigkeiten und doch sehr ruhig gelegen. Die Besitzer sind symphatisch und zuvorkommend. Sie haben auch gute Tips auf Lager um Amsterdam zu entdecken. Absolut empfehlenswert!!!

  • Andrew Waterhouse  - 

    This was our first visit to Amsterdam as tourists, though I had briefly worked there twice, about fifteen years ago. We chose the house boat after looking at other types of accommodation and other house boats as it was ideally located, close to Central Station but just far enough from the centre of the city to be reasonably quiet and it proved to be so. The boat itself is cosy and clean, with more than enough space for two people to spend a comfortable stay. Although the settee will make into a second bed, it is in the main living area so wouldn't always suit families or if sharing with others. We had a problem with the shower which was rectified immediately after talking to the owner. The only "extras" which we would suggest for the future would be a toaster and a few more kitchen utensils. We would thoroughly recommend this boat to anybody wanting simple, comfortable self catering accommodation in Amsterdam. Andrew & Carol from Huddersfield July 2010

  • Jeevani Wijesinghe  - 

    We had a great time, the boat was very comfortable and the location was fantastic, very close to all amenities but still quiet and peaceful. The host was lovely and we had a fabulous stay with no problems. I would definitely stay here again. Cheers guys

  • Patrick Bernheim  - 

    Très bien situé à deux pas de la gare et de Waterlooplein. Bel espace intérieur, même si on est un peu à l'étroit dans la salle de bains. Couchage confortable. Dommage qu'il y ait une autre péniche "collée" à celle-ci, cela gâche un peu la vue.

  • Kari Pusa  - 

    What a great place to stay. Cosy boat with good equipment. Friendly neigbours and owner. Optimal position in the city center beside a peaceful street. Absolutely great views. Highly recommended. We will be back.

  • Marthe Chensel  - 

    We had a wonderful stay in this houseboat. The boat was very clean and had everything we needed. It was really nice that there was a laptop we could use to check weather and get directions too. The host was very nice and helpful as well. The boat is in a nice, safe location with grocery, restaurants, and shopping near by. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone (unless you have issues walking up and down steep stairs).
