amsterdam best alternative to a hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 7, 2010

I have stayed once in august with Efrin at his houseboat and had one of the best times in A'Dam ever! He stocks the fridge with anything you would want for breakfast and is unobtrusive the rest of your stay unless you need something. The boat is located near Leidseplein and also the Pijp area---right across the canal from the Heineken Brewery. There is one main bedroom, a large bathroom and a large main room which includes a kitchen with a fridge, burners----dont remember if there is a microwave or not---such is Amsterdam, but great views out the window of swans and canal cruise boats. Many extras just check out the website....As I said Leidseplein nearby with Wagamama's, the Bulldog coffeeshop and many other goodies nearby just take a very safe walk around this neighborhood---a nice park half a block away from the boat. Efrin can advise on any questions if you need him---he is in an apartment nearby...Smoking allowed next to a window or on the very cool back deck which has a small table and chair for relaxation.

Unique Quality: Canalside living, breakfast included, neighborhood, quiet nights

Directions: near Leidseplein, The Pijp

Houseboat

by written on January 2, 2005

Try staying in a houseboat for a change. There are a lot of choices for rent. Some can be really nice. Probably a good choice if staying a week or more.

Warning for the arachnophobic that houseboats are on water and even though they are clean, they can have spiders.

Note that although you cannot swim in the canals, they do not stink. That was a worry that I would have had in booking a room on the water.

Unique Quality: Great view and can be relaxing to be on water.

Directions: You can probably get information at the VVV offices.
