We stayed on the Bloemgracht Houseboat for 2 weeks over Queensday. It is clean & light on the inside despite the rather gloomy exterior. It has a full kitchen with coffee maker, lots of dishes & pans, dishwasher, stove & big fridge (no microwave) & washer/dryer. The furnishings are basic, but clean & the TV got 25 channels. The bed was comfortable & raised, requiring a small step stool. The toilet & bathtub are also raised (above water line) so the step stool came in real handy & there was plenty of hot water. The sleeper sofa in living room would sleep 2 people but was not very comfortable to sit on. We enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table watching the world go by. Location of houseboat is great, right off the Prinsengracht so close to Stop & Go or tramstop at Westerkerk. I do miss the church bells. The pictures on the website are very accurate. Once again, I would highly recommend renting through Frederics.
