About us

Wake up with a smile while overlooking the Amstel River, enjoy breakfast while feeding the ducks, walk through the crowded streets with a coffee to go, discover the canals by boat or dream away while riding your bike… The HouseBoats are really well located on a nice part of town. And offcourse; the Amstel River.

Since 2011, little AMSTEL HouseBoat is a Bed & Breakfast welcoming guests from all over the world. Sleeping on a houseboat is a true experience one will never forget. Current resident/owner took over the boat end of 2017. Our aim is to focus on a complete experience with (water)bicycle hire, swims in the river and maybe even boat tours to Ouderkerk!

In 2019 we acquired another boat. This one is more suitable for 2 couples and families. Or travelers who require more space and luxury. It's actually an entire house/apartment. With the decks around it you can enjoy Amsterdam's water first row. Being next door from the Amstel Intercontinental hotel, we named it next to AMSTEL.

We hope to welcome you onboard soon! Kindest Regards, team AMSTEL HouseBoats
