Very happy to stay at Amicita. Great staff (thanks Steph) I especially enjoyed the lounge area. very clean and tidy. peaceful in the evenings, and quiet at night time. I only experienced the bunk bed room, but I'll try doubles next time. Would definitely recommend

As they say, it's in the small things, but staying on a boat everything is small, so everything counts. The rooms are painfully small, and it felt like no thought was put into how 2 people can functionally use the space. Everything crammed into a small corner, mirror super small in an unuseful place, taps too big for the sink...

We stayed in a twin room on the Amicitia in October 2014 for four nights. And while this old boat has a few technical issues it makes up for it in charm. The boat is located close to the Nemo science museum at the end of a peer with great views overlooking the Oosterdock waterway. Centraal and centre of the...

A 10-15 minute walk from centraal station and a little bit further to Dam Square, De wallen, Maddame Tussaud's etc so pretty conveniently located and not difficult to find. On arrival if no one is around you have to call them, a problem if you have travelled from abroad and do not have call access on your mobile. Once on...

We stayed here one night as the other boat we were staying on was fully booked. I found the Amicitia to be very good value, although we enjoyed the other boat we stayed on the Amicitia had larger cabins, and was a better rate per night. Good location, very friendly and helpful staff, fantastic breakfast- meats, cheeses, cereals, a toasted...

Well my husband and I booked two nights on this boat. Cheap and cheerful. ( but not overly cheap). Room small ( but we can cope with that). Young lad very polite and chatty BUT here goes. When we arrived back after an evening out we found that there were no lights working in the toilets. They didn't flush either....

This is a hostel where you get good service and reasonable value for money. The cabins are not very big but do not need to be as they upper deck is fine for leisure. It is not plush and luxurious but then it does not claim to be. The breakfast is fine for those of us with simple tastes. My...

I know it's Amsterdam, but where do I start? It's billed as a hotel, yet the night receptionist must of thought it was a bar. For one, music was played till late at night, even though he may have been the only person upstairs. Music was still playing at 7am! To make it worse, the music was terrible and on...

Was a great experience staying on a boat, great location with the best views of Amsterdam. Room was small but comfortable, what more does one need. The breakfast was basic but filing. Don't think I could have found a better place. Would definitely stay here again.
