Our room in David's boat was very nice, in the front of the boat, super silent. David is a great guy, he provides any info you may need. In sum, we had a good stay in David's boat.

Boat was clean, however we did not like the fact that there was no reception. YOU ARE LITERALLY ON YOUR OWN! Wifi does not work either. Tram ends at 12:45 am leaving you walking home which takes about an hr from the red light district.

Because we wanted some different, we've decided to try David's boat and we were very happy we did that. So, the location is quiet, close to center. No problems with the neighborhood. We enjoys watching the people walking with their dogs and playing with them. Also the ducks were great. We could admire them for hours, taking a lot of positive energy. David is a good host. He helped us with all necessary and also we had a great talk. We recommend this location to all who want a great experience.

The boat is in a nice neighborhood with shops, places to eat, etc. Number 10 tram runs to the museum quarter, and it's an easy walk to a very pleasant brewpub in an old windmill. It was cold when we were there, and our area was often uncomfortably cold. There are no lights over the only sink--a problem when it's dark--and there are no electrical outlets on the upper level (where the WiFi works). It's for people who are agile enough to climb up and down a steep, narrow companionway.

It's cramped, smells of mildew and feels like a deathtrap, but it's got so much character that you grow to love it instantly. An experience unlike any other!

My stay at David's Boat was an amazing experience! The owner is very nice, positive and helpful person. Boat is pretty close from central station but it's a very quiet area. The room was clean and bed was extremely comfortable. I can 100% recommend you that place. I've booked a room for myself but I've paid for 2 people and it was still less than for a single room in a hotel.

It is 20-25 min away from the city centre. There is no kitchen or hall, but our room was fine, with shower inside. There was no breakfast, but kattel and coffe (tea) were in the room.

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Davids Boat! It was our first time in Amsterdam, and he started out with a lot of helpful information about the city. The Boat is really cute and in a quiet neighborhood, only a 10min tramride to the center of the city. David is really a good host, very attentive and he even found us a old tv-set with dvds just because we felt like a movie-night. For the very cosy room and great location, the price was awesome! /Linnea and Julian

We had an amazing weekend on David's houseboat. He is very friendly and accommodating and the boat is just a 10 minute tram ride to Amsterdam Central. Awesome!

We stayed over New Year and the boat was perfect for us then and there: well located, clean, comfortable, very warm, and overall a great experience. David was there to meet and greet and was a very nice and pleasant man. Would definitely stay a second time. Thank you for the experience.

We (French-German couple) have really enjoyed our stay on David's houseboat. It is an old boat but nicely renovated with heating, hot water shower, a fairly comfortable bed and kind amenities like a water boiler, coffee/tea, etc. - we would definitely recommend to stay here. By bike, it takes you about 15 minutes to the city center and you will pass by beautiful neighbourhoods, this is indeed a nice corner of Amsterdam. David is a warm, helpful and patient host - we would come back any time!

The boat is located a short distance from the center, about 20 minutes walking or €10 in a taxi. There are nearby trams that will take you to the museum area and Amsterdam CS as well. Personally, I really appreciated the quiet and everything you need can be found within a few blocks. David is kind and very relaxed, and the boat has wifi strong enough to stream videos without a problem. Room was simple, but you have your own toilet and shower and a huge bed. Couldn't have asked for more!

David's boat was interesting experience. The room is quite small and basic, but cozy. David tried to make it livable by providing kettle&coffee, radio and other small, but nice things. As this is an old boat, it doesn't feel very clean and tide and it smelled a bit funny inside. In the canal around the boat there was a lot of garbage. But David was helpful, it was warm and in general we were satisfied.

David was incredibly friendly, and came in person to help us find the boat. The room was clean and coffee was provided. Everything seemed to be in good shape on his ship, and it was absolutely worth the money we paid.
