All about Hans’s place

B&B BK 52 consists of the newly created forecastle, (sitting room with the small kitchen and bathroom) with the double bed in the frontal stern of the ship. It has its own private entrance.

(Amsterdam registration number: 0363 CE49 9B0B C7FA 79D6) .

The space
This 'flagship', the houseboat where I have been living in for over forty years now, contains two guestrooms, this one is the B&B BK52 under the newly constructed forecastle.
(The other one is the B&B BK53 in the very back end of the ship. See my profile for the other B&B's availability).

"A dream location for couples traveling together".

The originally sailing Dutch barge, type Hagenaar, was later converted to a motor ship and is now moored on the River Amstel, functioning as a houseboat only.
(Its engine was taken out in 2006 and added to the collection of an engine museum). Aboard are, at its both ends, two neatly done guestrooms.

This room is at the backside. It includes the use of the wheelhouse, from which you have a magnificent view over "de Magere Brug" (the Skinny Bridge). Besides that, you'll have available a small sitting/bedroom, a bathroom with shower and toilet, and a terrace on deck. Not to forget the double bed in the stern. Also there is a kitchenette provided with water cooker and coffee machine , microwave and fridge to prepare breakfast or a cup of soup! With the help of the hotplate you can even cook a meal if you want. You will have your own entrance directly into the cabin.

The houseboat is located in the middle of the center (see location), café's and restaurants are close by. The Utrechtsestraat is a few hundred meters away and the Rembrandtplein is at less than a 5 minute walk from the boat. You will find yourself surrounded by the canals and old canal houses and it is a pleasure to see people passing by in all kinds of boats. Smoking is only allowed on deck. There is a radio/cd player, television and wifi connection in the room and a hair dryer in the bathroom.

Where you’ll be

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

The ship is, right in the center of Amsterdam, moored in the river Amstel, close to the famous Skinny Bridge. Basicly most of what you want to see or visit is on walking distance 'around the corner'.
