Reviews of this property
We spent last weekend on Lotje house boat, we found it very comfortable and in a quiet part of Amsterdam. The boat had everything you needed on board, was nice and warm even without the fire on. the location is very useful for the museums and also has a LIDL across the road which makes shopping very easy. Would definitely recommend this houseboat to anyone considering a trip to Amsterdam
We had a wonderful 4 days on Lotje's houseboat in Amsterdam. The house is very comfortable, well equipped, very clean and centrally located. We can fully recommend it for a family.
What a find! The houseboat was perfect for our weekend in Amsterdam. The host arrived at the agreed time to meet us and make sure we were comfortable. There is a Lidl just over the road, so a quick shop for breakfast things was so easy. There was plenty of coffee provided. Public transport was so easy too. Buy the IAmsterdam card, all tram journeys are included. We walked everywhere, great location. Would love to return.
we found the houseboat to be clean spacious and welcoming. A breakfast pack provided with a variety of cereals, jams and spreads to choose from was very useful on our first morning. though a carton of milk would have helped as we were delayed and didn't arrive until after midnight, though not a problem as we discovered a lidl store just over the bridge and it was open at 8am.
There were plenty of towels, bedding and toiletries in fact most things you would use day to day at home.
The houseboat is ideally situated in a quite residential area with a little traffic noise from the main road opposite. Only a 15 to 20 minute walk to the main attractions or a 5 minute tram ride which you can catch at the end of the street.
Our hosts Lotje and Mell were always at hand should we need them via mobile or email.
We would defiantly recommend this place for a different type of relaxing holiday. Already planning our 2017 trip there :-)
Yes what to say. It was an all-around great holiday in Amsterdam. A great city. Even though a little noisy. But otherwise, the stay at the houseboat was beautiful. Nothing was missing. Was everything you could possibly need in their daily lives so. Even toiletries, tea, coffee, jams etc. We have felt very comfortable with the coot family at the houseboat.
Ja was sollen wir sagen. Es war ein rundum super Urlaub in Amsterdam. Eine tolle Stadt. Wenn auch ein wenig laut. Aber ansonsten war der Aufenthalt im Hausboot schön. Es fehlte an Nichts. Alles war vorhanden was man so im täglichen Leben so braucht. Selbst Badeartikel, Tee, Kaffee, Marmelade etc. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt mit der Blesshuhnfamilie am Hausboot.
We had a lovely family holiday on this houseboat, really clean and spacious. The kids loved the bunk beds although the bottom bed folded out to a double so both could fit in if needed. Great location very close to trams, walking distance of many places of interest and a supermarket across the road for supplies.
We went in spring which was still quite chilly at times but the boats heating system was brilliant, love the spa bath too great after a long day sightseeing. Owners very helpful - would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere great to stay in Amsterdam.
Great holiday on a houseboat, uncomplicated keys incl. Flat / boot visit!
Very nicely decorated, and Wi-Fi is available.
Toller Urlaub auf dem Hausboot, unkomplizierte Schlüsselübergabe inkl. Wohnung/Boot-Besichtigung!
Sehr schön eingerichtet, auch WLAN ist vorhanden.
It was a great holiday in a fantastic houseboat. Class service, nice ambiance - we immediately felt very comfortable. The location is convenient, the houseboat is fully equipped and the terrace offers space to chill out.
Es war ein toller Urlaub auf einem traumhaften Hausboot. Klasse Betreuung, nettes Ambiente - wir haben uns sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage ist günstig, das Hausboot ist perfekt ausgestattet und die Terrasse bietet Platz zum Chillen.
Just brilliant. We had a lovely time staying here and would recommend it to anyone. The boat is beautifully furnished and well set out. Everything works as it should and lots of great amenities. The breakfast selection when you arrive is a great feature. The location of the boat is lovely and convenient for all your needs. You can get anywhere in the city with just a short walk.
The boat was clean and well maintained; Although the landlord himself was not there, the boat was handed over to us by a friend who was very courteous, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the fireplace was broken, we would like to use it, since we were there in January. Otherwise everything was fine fine.
The boat is quite central - you can also get walking to the city center; also within walking distance are the major museums. For the town near you have to accept that you have to leave your car on the outskirts of the city.
A recommended accommodation.
Das Boot war sauber und gepflegt; die Vermieterin selbst war zwar nicht da, das Boot wurde uns von einem Freund übergeben, der sehr zuvorkommend, freundlich und hilfsbereit war. Leider war der Kamin defekt, den wir gerne genutzt hätten, da wir im Januar dort waren. Ansonsten war alles bestens in Ordnung.
Das Boot liegt recht zentral - man kann auch zu Fuß in die Innenstadt kommen; ebenso gut zu Fuß erreichbar sind die großen Museen. Für die Stadtnähe muss man in Kauf nehmen, dass man das Auto am Rande der Stadt abstellen muss.
Eine empfehlenswerte Unterkunft.
