A beautiful houseboat, in the center of Amsterdam.
Well maintained, cozy houseboat moored on a common center located in the Plantage district of Amsterdam, a stone's throw from Artis Zoo, the Amstel and Waterloo square with several terraces and restaurants within easy reach. The ship was recently on both the interior and exterior painted and fitted a new bathroom, new electrical system and new heating system. From the deck you have a nice view over the water of the New Achtergracht.
The format is as follows:
Entrance from the quay through generous aft stairs to hold former vv hall, bathroom with shower, bright living room lined with large windows, open kitchen, two bedrooms and storage room for functions. The bed rooms have each a not so wide bed which is suitable for one person or a couple. The bed is 120cm wide and 2m long. In the living room there is a large sleeping sofa for 2 persons.
You can sit on the front deck and back deck.
Washing/dryer machine, wifi, tv with dvd, ipod/iphone music player, dish washer, blender, toaster, oven, microwave, toaster, 2 double beds of 120m. Bathroom has shower and toilet.
The house boat is comfortable for 2 business people, 2 couples, or 2 or up to 4 friends.
The Plantage, or "plantation" is one of Amsterdam's first suburbs, and is named after the botanical and herb gardens that were popular here in the 1800s. The Artis Zoo has been one of the area's star attractions since it opened in 1838 , as the first-ever zoo in continental Europe. Nature lovers will also want to check out the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam (Amsterdam Botanical Garden) established in 1682.
The Jewish Historical Museum (Joods Historisch Museum) traces Jewish spirituality, history and culture over the millennia with exhibits spread over three former shuln (temples), retrofitted and adjoined into one masterful museum. Another family favorite, is the Tropics Museum (Tropenmuseum).
The University of Amsterdam has many buildings around the Plantage, and as a result, many student cafes and bars are in the neighborhood. The Kriterion is a place where intellectuals meet for coffee or to play some of the many board games scattered around the café. Most importantly, the Kirterion is the city's main alternative cinema, with interesting films from all over the world.

Conforme au descriptif ; salle de bain originale mais fonctionnelle, salon très confortable et cosy, cuisine superbement équipée et chambres très confortables. Accueil chaleureux avec de quoi faire un café et même un petit dîner. A deux pas des transports vers le centre, d'un supermarché ouvert tard le soir et de l'Amstel pour se promener dans un quartier calme et authentique. Une vraie péniche où il fait bon se poser.
