The house boat is very clean and as we opted for breakfast, the fridge was generously filled daily. The kitchen has all appliances, and if you are on a budget you can save by cooking at "home". It accomodates from one to four people, the price is reasonable and includes a computer with unlimited internet access.It has everything one finds in a hotel without sharing it with others. The whole boat is yours except for one part (the owners' office) which he uses for 1-2 hours a day. He is invisibe except when wanted and extremly friendly & helpful.
It is very calm & quite yet close to most major sights, and on a sunny day, we sat outside sun tanning like the rest of the residents of Amsterdam.
I will definitely go back!
