It is the Adventurous, the Zen-Minded ,the Artistic and the Romantic that are triggered most by JonasHouseboat. Starting to tilt towards the chique its nevertheless devoid of three star ambitions. Sometimes the meeting point of Jonas Artist friends and filled with ideas and materialisations actually this whole canal is unusual even for amsterdam standards paramount in the high numbers of happy inhabitants. Funky, alternative and as green as possible we enjoy our campfires with a glass of wine on a summers night. A microcosm clamped in between the old and new architectural centres it should be the perfect hub for a little exploration outside your own.... Surrounded by other boats and little gardens you feel like you are in a small oasis just outside the very centre. Like a bunch of holiday homes, a row of houseboats stretches along the raildike. ( no worries trains must roll very slow here so no loud disturbing noise) With the speedy Gateway that is Central Station at ten minutes walk and inbetween easy connect cartunnels we consider ourselves well connected to any location on the planet no matter who says what. Very beautiful in summer, almost forgotten by Big Brother, this spot has true holiday relaxation just outside the somewhat funfairlike centre. You will stay inside a floating household with 2 double rooms available for guests. One can comfortably sleep either together or apart and you can find a permanently online computer in your room. Shared shower and toilet. Well equipped Kitchen with free coffee and tea. Nice views of the water and slight rocking will relax you after enjoying the intense city centre. Rooms and bathroom are fresh and light.

Disastrous. A dirty, disappointing place.
Jonas left for Russia on the 1st day we came and left us back with the central heating out of order (at 6 degrees in the first, stormy days of October 2008!!!). Jonas said a proxy would show up, but we didn't meet him and even looked for him unsuccessfully.
There was no breakfast buffet, just "serve yourself" from a fridge filled with smelling things.
The bed sheets smelled strongly, of smoke and marijuana. Absolutely no idea how Jonas was given good marks for cleanliness. Cheating?
Considered everything, it was way too expensive for what we got.
There is one bad review here saying i do not have heating... These ladies were not intelligent enough to open the heating regulator on the radiator and more of this... Also some people expect a boat to be like a house; its not! As boats come this is a really nice boat and everything normally works!
Also my laundry is clean, but people are allowed to smoke here but we ventilate continuously... Book a room with no worries.
Greetings and Welcome; Jonas.
Amsterdam is a wonderfull and warm and surprising place. And Jonas' Houseboat is a funny reflection of it. I have always wanted to stay on a houseboat. For they are not extremely common, yet very Dutch.
Jonas' Houseboat is, as far as I can recall, as honestly Dutch and open-minded as it gets.
Convenient, clean, but not overdone, happy-go-lucky, yet well ordered and creatively sensible.
No need to rock the boat, for it will rock you!
Design without attitude. Hotel V has created a stunning mix of basic and comfort. Start your day with an energizing
Hotel V breakfast. Shop until you drop in the nearby Amsterdam center. And when you get back, relax in ...
