My family stayed at the lovely Amstel River Houseboat for one week. The location is fantastic and only 10 mins tram ride from City centre. There is a nearby supermarket and Eddie (the owner) was very accommodating. It was nice as all the bedrooms had their own bathrooms. It's very spacious and comfortable. It was nice to sit outside and watch the boats go by. Highly recommend and definitely come back and stay at the lovely Amstel River Houseboat.

“Beautiful houseboat”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The houseboat was situated such that the staterooms are located on either ends of the ship, with a large private bathroom with shower for each. The galley was compact, but well equipped. The main thing is that the ceilings were very high, the air clean and fresh and no odor of a boat. There is also a cool "living room" with a flat screen TV, from which we watched the world cup, and a lovely deck on the bow with teak chairs and cushions. Very lovely place that we enjoyed immensely. The only change I would make is a coffee maker (such as a french press) that uses regular ground coffee. Everything else was perfect.

Stopped with our teenage sons , as per previous reviews , accommodation was of a high standard and Ed was a great host giving us interesting info on the boats history.
Trams and shops all 5 mins walk and plenty of places to eat locally .
We would stop again when visiting Amsterdam.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this houseboat! There were 2 couples and a baby in our group, and we had plenty of room to spread out and feel comfortable. We loved sitting on the balcony with coffee in the morning looking at the boats go by. The bathrooms were outstanding for a shower or a bath, and the beds were comfy. We would absolutely stay here again! Note, it's a good 10-15 minute walk to city center though & there's not a ton of nearby restaurants... but there is a nice kitchen onboard. :)

“An incredible place to stay - you must go!”

We stayed here whilst visiting Amsterdam - we travelled with my parents and our three month daughter. It could not have been more perfect. The booking process was very smooth and communication prior to arrival was excellent - they answered all my questions and concerns. We arrived by car and was able to park directly outside the boat. The boat was immaculate and was very well equipped. The bedrooms were beautiful and bathrooms very stylish. The boat was very well located - near tram number 4 and about 15 mins from the centre of Amsterdam. There are lots of cafes, restaurants and bars nearby (although not near enough to make a noise!), and two very well stocked supermarkets. We would love to return and will recommend to all our friends and family - its an incredible place to stay.

The boat is beautifully refurbished to a very high standard, with a very comfortable disposition of rooms and kitchen,dinning and lounge areas. We had friends coming to visit us after the Christmas and there was enough space for 9 people to have a dinner. Boat has a luxurious bath to relax and in general it all designed to relax. It has everything you need for a pleasant stay and location is very good too, central, but not crowdy at all. It was a very relaxing and unique experience. Thank you
