AMSTEL HouseBoats

rooms on board of a houseboat in the centre of Amsterdam

next to AMSTEL

In the Singelgracht, directly next to the Amstel river, lies Houseboat next to AMSTEL. Centrally located in Amsterdam. The boat has a beautiful bedroom which fits two people.

When your travel party is bigger, we can create two extra places.

This makes the boat extra suitable for couples, families (with smaller children) or traveling groups together. Up to 4 people can stay at the same time.

The resident is usually away for work. As a result, you practically have the entire boat for yourself.
This allows us to create two additional sleeping places in the living room. Of course this should be agreed upon in advance.


A couple will love this retreat. During your stay you can make use of a very large 20m2 bedroom and a seperate bathroom.
The room is very light because of the windows on two parts of the room.

2 couples

The boat is large enough for two couples to share the space. We have a comfortable bed in the other room. Added bonus to this space is the direct access to the decks. To have some drinks and soak up the sun.


When you are traveling with (smaller) childeren the boat is very suitable too. They'll be having the experience of a lifetime (and so will you)!

next to AMSTEL is the way to go here (and not the seperate Studio's of little AMSTEL).

sunshine & decks

From the living-room area you can access the balcony. Here you can enjoy the 'Golden Hour' of the sun the best. There are no buildings hindering the sunset.


If desirable you can make use of our kitchen. We can arrange this for an additional charge (€ 50 per night). The kitchen has a small induction stove, oven and other design elements.
You can also find a bigger fridge pots, pans, cutlery, a toaster etc.
