    Breakfast was so tasty! Freshly baked bread and real eggs every morning. The staff was uber nice and helped us feel comfortable even with late check-in. Cant beat location too, easily walkable to all parts of the city, even easier with a bike!

    loved the idea of staying on a boat in Amsterdam. the boat was bigger than I thought and the rooms had everything we needed. I was worried they may be too small or smell weird or even move around too much but literally felt like I was in a hotel...
  • Jasonny
    Very charming and cosy, but you do need to expect to be in a small boat cabin. The location is brilliant, right next to the Nemo museum. The breakfast was limited in choice but fine for us. The coffee was very good. It definitely is more exciting...
