“Great Stay on Prinsengracht Houseboat”
Reviewed 7 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We stayed on the PG houseboat for 4 nights in early February, 2018. As houseboat veterans to the AMS scene, we are in good position to review the boat. First, I would say the boat itself is a perfect blend of comfort and functionality. Some boats are very functional, but not very comfortable, and other boats seemingly the opposite. This boat had hot water, good heating (needed for our stay!), and everything worked as expected. The spacing in the main room and the space in the bedrooms is ample.

Secondly, I would say the location is also quite desirable - especially on the weekends. There were 3 or 4 markets in the Jordaan, all within a few blocks walk. The markets were excellent, and we have always loved the Jordaan area. Now I will say if you plan to walk to Rembrantplein or Leidseplein at night, it is a healthy walk. We had a 6 year and a pregnant wife, but it was still ok for us to walk in the bitter cold the way there. I figured out if you take the tram back to Dam, you can then hop on the 17 to get off about 2 blocks away, so it makes coming back much easier, During the day, outside the markets, there was a nice playground next to us our child loved, and one of the shopping areas of AMS was 2 blocks away - so plenty of places nearby to eat, shop, etc.

Last I would say the host was very nice and welcoming, easy to work with and was very responsive during the contact and meetup portion,

Next time we go back to Amsterdam, this boat will be at the top of our list. Comfy, roomy, easy host, and great location. 2 thumbs up from America!

From the very friendly host Ad, to the location right next to Winkel 43 and a few minutes from the very centre of the city, this is the perfect base to explore. Comfortable, all the amenities of a home (because it is one) and you can pretend you're a local by waving at the tour boats as they come by.
