Score from 135 reviews Excellent
Very close to central station, and on walking distance from city centre. Staff is super friendly, had interesting conversations with them and they are happy to provide advice about the city. Breakfast had a good variety. Generally the boat has a very homely atmospere, easy to feel very comfortable.
Great location very near to the central station; Friendly hosts; Warm drinks available for free at all times; Nice cozy sleeping cabins (rooms); A great choice and experience!
I can't put into words how wonderful our stay was! The hosts are gracious and willing to answer any questions you have. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean as are the common areas. Breakfast is an amazing assortment of cereals, breads, meat, cheese, yoghurt, juice, fruit, and a "hot" item such as eggs or pancakes. Tea and coffee are available all day! The location is superb...just a short walk to the central station and the city center. For those of you with concerns about motion sickness, the water is very calm and you can't even tell you are on a boat. We won't consider staying anywhere else on future visits to Amsterdam! Simply fantastic!
I have stayed on a few hotel boats in Oosterdok and this was the best one. The cabins are bigger than in the other ones I stayed in, the one I had was the size of a small room in a regular hotel. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is good and in contrast to the other hotel boats, the WiFi connection was great also in the room.
If you have lot of baggages like us you might find it a bit hard to take it into and out of the ship, but it's not worth worrying too much about it.
Very nice ship in a great location with an amazing staff that was so helpful that even made us breakfast earlier when we were leaving. And how tasty is their breakfast! Also, there's a cute and huge dog! :D
because its on a ship, the room and the bathroom are pretty small, and the wifi cant reach to some room
really nice location, near centraal station, few minutes walk from city center,always free cafe and tea.
The wifi in our own room is not very good but we can get to the common room any time to get good wifi signal.
The location is very convenient. It is near to the centre station. The room is very comfortable with necessity included and the breakfast is very good. Friendly host and atmosphere.
Hans the owner of the boat was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the quiet location.
Wish he staff could have explain us something about the boat and everything to make the experience complete.
Staff very friendly and the experience of sleeping in a ship is amazing.
Showerhead didn't stand up by itself but besides that worked great.
Location is convenient. Amazing service. Great feel to it.
It was rather cold in the bathroom and no hairdryer there. The room is very small - it's even difficult for 2 people to stand between beds, one should seat. But we didn't spend much time onboard - that's a good variant to sleep and to have a perfect breakfast for reasonable cost.
Very friedly and attentive owners of the boat. Tea and fruits are available at any time. You may regulate the temperature in the room youself. The boat is rather close to the city centre.Very good breakfasts!!!
Great staff. Very friendly. Breakfast was terrific & very tasty. Great location. Definitely recommend!!
They don't have caffettiera. Only thing I could find I didn't like :) That's not even a minus so I can't say anything else. That's it.
First of all - great hosts. Everything was clean, comfortable and we had a really nice and quiet sleep there. breakfast was ok, no complaints there. We really loved that "boat way of life" so thank you guys for your kindness an hospitality. See you next time beacuse Amsterdam deserves at least one more visit (but longer this time).
Location very central, friendly hosts, Great breakfast and coffee, tea always available. Nice and warm. Carlos and Micaela answered all our questions about Amsterdam and are a great team to get the most from your trip. Would recommend this as a place to stay and would stay again.
Fantastic with kids: it had a strong adventure feeling for them (staying on a boat!), but it didn't lack any comfort at all, on the contrary. It felt like home. Staff extremely nice and friendly. Being right opposite the NEMO science centre made it absolutely perfect. I can't think of a better place to stay.
Nothing that we didn't like. :)
On arrival we have been greeted by staff who made us feel instantly at home. The accommodation is very clean and is an amazing value for money. There are tea/coffee facilities in the communal area (dining). Breakfast is more than sufficient and in addition to continental cold foods we were also offered freshly cooked eggs (fried or omelette) which was a pleasant surprise. The boat is about 10 min walk from train station and is very close to the centre. Would definitely recommend this place to have a short break!
There was nothing to disappoint
Awesome location, great breakfast, very friendly staff. Warm and adorable rooms, little bit tiny, but after all you can't expect bigger space in a boat. Hotelschip Gandalf made the idea of staying in a boat, one of my best experiences. Loved it!!!
It wasn't our first time here, so that tell you everything...
Being a boat, rooms are pretty small, same for the bathroom.
Staff is very nice and we received a warm hospitality. The location is very particular, being a boat. It's also pretty close to the central station.
We have a huge luggage with us. Its really difficult to get into the boat if you are a girl with lot of luggage.
I really like the place. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly. What I really like more is that the place is calm and not noisy at all. It feels like almost your staying in a friends house.
Itcis great located (near red light, dam square, crntral station...)... Very cheap and what you get is great. Clean, friendly staff, breakfast included (tea and coffe all daz free unlimitrd)...
Very well situated about a mile from the station and centre of town. Carlos and Michaela were excellent hosts. Breakfast was brilliant
fab views over harbour, friendly staff give you a warm welcome, something different!
Small rooms and quite damp. But it is boat! Still would recomend that place to stay cause there is more positives than negatives.
Great localisation. Very nice owners!! Breakfasts really good everyone can find something to eat. Clean. Adorable dog on the bord very cute. If I will be again in Amsterdam definetely going back there.
The boat is warm and clean even during bad weather thank you to the staff we really enjoyed amsterdam because of good nights of sleep ;) I will come back if I get this chance cheers
