Worst hotel stay ever! Never again. After they had adult bedbugs they said we get the price refunded but this was just a delay to don't let us write a complaint! Just a big fraud, never again... I dont even know if they really renovated the room as they said!

Loved the houseboat. It was a little further out from the centre than we expected but once we figured out the trams, that was fine! Another review mentioned problems with noise but I'm a fairly light sleeper and didn't notice this, also really appreciated the blackout blinds. Perfect being so close to Lidl where we got breakfast for two each... More

Small but cosy and perfect for a couple.. Only thing I would recommend is if buying breakfast to bring back find some plastic plates and cutlery to throw away afterwards - we struggled eating croissants and jam without any but no where to wash up! Map provided is extremely helpful - lovely location to provide a stroll between attractions and... More

This houseboat has just two rooms; a basic room and the standard room. We have just returned from a weekend in the standard one. You check youself in from 2:30pm by getting the key from a key safe when you are sent the code. The room was immaculate with two large windows overlooking The Amstel. There is a small wet... More

What a lovely experience. The place was immaculate. Feeding the birds in the morning was a real treat. It was the perfect end to a perfect vacation. We were not sure about the Houseboat experience. Thought we would get seasick. But happily this was not the case. So different and so enjoyable.

Absolutely amazing. Beautiful room on the famous Amstel River. Comfy beds, modern wet room, tea and coffee machine. And the owner hand delivers breakfast every morning to your door. Was a little apprehensive with the river on case the room moves but it is sturdy as a rock. Such a wonderful place to stay. A true hidden gem. Highly recommend

Well! What a beautiful stay we had at little Amstel houseboat, very warm, clean and great location! Not far from the centre at all. It was a truly amazing experience staying on a houseboat, waking up to fresh bread and orange juice brought to us by one of our lovely hosts! But that's not it, eating breakfast by our window...

If you're looking for the real houseboat experience this is the right place for you - it truly is magical! The room is not big but perfect for one person, cozy, clean and beautifully furnished, plus the view is absolutely stunning! The host was very nice and welcoming, he delivered breakfast right at my doorstep, and it was abundant and... More

We had three nights here at Little Amstel in the standard room and the basic room, fine for a family of four. First impressions were that the rooms were very clean and very small but with amazing views, especially the standard room looking down the Amstel. The houseboat is in a great position, close to everything. We never met anyone... More

We have just come back from Little Amstel. It was amazing. The houseboat was so clean, lovely comfy bed, and the view was fantastic. We did not see Mirjam but a very nice man (and his dog!) The breakfast was awesome and different every day. The ducks liked it too! We loved it so much and will definitely come back.
