This is a gorgeous houseboat. Much better experience than staying in a hotel: We found out what it is like to live on the water. The owners are lovely. It is very quiet and out double room was delightful. We very much enjoyed the eat-all-you-can breakfast, which was available at any time from arrival onwards! My husband had several breakfasts.


Very friendly and helpful owners. Would definitely recommend. Breakfast was also included and they went out of their way to help store bags.


A lovely houseboat, in a great, central location. Recommended.


We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the novelty of staying on a canal boat in the Dam. Silvia, the hostess, was friendly and always ready with helpful tidbits of info about the city. The boat could do with updating, in terms of decor, and the bed led a lot to be desired for - it was far too old and soft, leaving me with chronic neck ache for most of our stay, which was a bit annoying. Also, access to the boat, itself, was a bit hazardous at times. Otherwise, though, it was all good.

We immediately felt at home on this houseboat, thanks to the great atmosphere cultivated by the staff. The cooking facilities are good for such a small space. The only real negative is the relatively low intimacy given that the two cabins are separated by a very thin wall -- I'd recommend renting the entire boat !

My sister and I stayed on the Antonia for a weekend and had a great time - we were looking for something with character, but didn't want to be right in the centre of Amsterdam with all the other wild tourists. The houseboat was quiet and cosy, although being in close quarters it's difficult not to hear other guests coming and going (there are only two rooms though). Most of the time we felt like we had the place to ourselves! Loved it, would definitely recommend to a small group!
