5 Hotels Boat in Amsterdam

A different option from accommodation offered by Amsterdam thanks to the network of canals that vertebrates the city center is the possibility of staying in a boat or house- boat that are moored in the canals.

Staying on a boat in Amsterdam, apart from offering us the possibility of a different experience sleeping on the water, assures us a good location as the canals run through the center, the tourist area to visit in Amsterdam.The offer of boats and houseboats in Amsterdam is the most extensive in the world with more than 60 accommodations.

Most of the offer is made up of river boats converted into “hotels”.

1- Prinsenboat (Boat Hotel)

The Prinsenboat would be an example of a river boat converted into a hotel.

It has 3 rooms: the Honeymoon Suite, the Van Gohg Suite and the Tulipe Suite, and it is fantastically located in the centre of the city.

2- Houseboat Prince-Avalon (Floating House)

The Houseboat Prince-Avalon would be more similar to a houseboat than a river boat, in this case the houseboat is rented as a whole, which means that we do not have to share it with anyone and it has a capacity for 4 people.

3- Boat Hotel Angeline

There are also larger boats like the Angeline, which has 14 rooms, which already resemble more a hotel than the boats and small houseboats that predominate in the offer of Amsterdam.
