We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Le Maroxidien. The boat is beautifully decorated and well presented throughout. The lovely Kathrin is a charming woman who made us feel welcomed as her guests.
The organic breakfast was a great start to set us up for a day's exploring of the wonderful city of Amsterdam. We always started breakfast with some laughs over our coffee as I tried to convince Kathrin that I was an old sea dog and well versed in the language of the sea.
We told Kathrin that we wanted a holiday that would be unique and with a soul. And that is what we got. Her houseboat has a soul and a gentle character. We will never forget our time here.
Do not expect spacious rooms. You are on a boat. Our room (India - the rooms are all themed on different countries) was perfect for us. The bathrooms are very good - Kathrin has stamped her own special and unique style on the accomodation.
I expect we will return to Amsterdam in the future and we will definitely return to our boat.
Decent location - short walk from Central Station - and well positioned for access to the city.
We were sad to leave.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome in my organic bed and breakfast LE MAROXIDIEN in the very charming upper house with terrace in the heart of Jordaan! In an absolutely unique setting, nearby Central Station, my B&B LE MAROXIDIEN will provide you an unforgettable stay: Not only the location and the interior, but also the service will enchant and inspire you. The B&B is located in the vibrant Jordaan, but at a quiet canal. At the front with view over the Lijnbaansgracht and at the rear side you look over the courtyards. Within walking distance you will find many restaurants, cafes and coffee bars and a wide variety of authentic shops. The mix of 'old' and 'new' residents makes the neighborhood very special. My aim is to provide you with an unforgettable stay. Not only the location and atmosphere should create this, but the service will enchant you. In the morning I will serve you a divine (as much as possible) organic breakfast. My B&B moved in August 2017, guestfotos and revieuws are from the previous location! ... more less
