  • Is it possible to park nearby ? as we plan to drive our Land Rover which is 1.9M high. Thank you
    Yes, try Oosterdok parking, which is one of the cheapest and furthest. The maximum vehicle height is 2,10 meters.

  • Is it possible to leave my luggage after the checkout to get them later ?
    If you put your luggage packed, the latest at noon, in a corner outside of the room, you can come back to pick it up at 2:30 pm the latest. Alternatively, you could leave your luggage at Central Station.

  • How well does the wifi work? Will a taxi be able to take us right to the houseboat. We have luggage.
    The WIFI's download speed is 50 Mbit/s, and taxis can make a brief stop on the pavement in front of the houseboat to offload luggage. However: In terms of time and money the train ride to Amsterdam Central station and then trams can't be beaten.

Host Review Score

In order to keep the natural balance we are very careful with the waste we produce and products we use. Recycling and separation of waste has been a habit for a decade, and at the houseboat we run a strict process of waste management and separate all of our garbage, reusing when possible and supporting local and national recycling initiatives with our wastes. We also offer unlimited drinking water of the highest quality, which in Amsterdam comes out of the tap. Most of that is river water that’s been filtered in the dunes, some 30 kilometers away. We provide reusable silverware and reusable shopping bags for doing groceries, and avoid as much as possible to buy products wrapped in plastic. The washing liquid is without added chemical perfume, yet very effective. • Soap, shampoo and conditioner are provided to guests through dispensers we refill to avoid the use of plastics. • The electricity and gas consumed from energy company Greenchoice is 100% renewable, to avoid nuclear or petroleum waste. We us an intelligent thermostat to prevent unnecessary heating. • Finally, the houseboat itself is a repurposed structure, being a metal vegetable barge built in 1947
Rembrandtplein is just 1 block away. You have easy access to the oldest part of town, the Jordaan isn't really that far either if you cut through and the Museumplein is also nearby. All are easy walks.
