Frederic and his crew are great folks! Helped me out, quickly, expertly and at very low cost. Best place in Amsterdam to go to have your bike repaired. Also make clear what they could not do instead of fiddleing around. Rents bikes and rooms aswell!

My husband and I stayed for two nights. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this experience. Was able to check in early which was awesome. We love the houseboat and all the charm. Arthur checked us in and gave us a great map with tips on where to get groceries and places to eat. Would stay here again and...

Wow. We stayed "at their place", where all three family members we interacted with were so kind and helpful. We arrived later because our flight came in late, but Marjolijn (I think was her name) came and checked us in, and then sat with us for about 15 min. explaining the area with the map. Showed us a lot of...

We ended up coming to Frédéric for a bike rental after a mishap somewhere else. Very efficient, very friendly (all of them, in the office and in the bike shop). The bikes are not the newest but are of very good quality. We had a great day in Noord, Java and KNSM island, then to the east of the city...

We were staying in a flat in the Brouwersgracht in the Jordaan so needed a bike rental nearby and that catered for kids. Frederic was recommended by the people we were renting from and they were great. We could try and pick whatever bikes we wanted, which did not have big logos if you want to be a little less...

Noodermart I was spacious and in a great location. While the furnishings are fairly basic, they're more than sufficient. Being right in the Jordaan, within walking distance to everything including numerous restaurants and a nearby grocery store as well as the train station, was perfect. I especially liked that it was not right in the overly touristed Dam Square area....

Thank you for your message. We are glad that you enjoyed staying in one of our apartments. Our apartments on the Noordermarkt square offer great location indeed! Central but surprisingly quiet at the same time. We hope to see you soon again, The Frédéric team PS : the hot water issue has of course been taken care of!

We hired bikes for a day and a half for €20 each. Nice to have incognito bikes. Supplied with lights, locks, and style. The chap there gave me such a fab bike, I didn't want to give it back. Cycling is great in Amsterdam. You are high up, you have dedicated lanes and traffic control everywhere you go. Loved it.

We sincerely thank you for reviewing your stay(s) with us! Our prices are among the cheapest you can find in this area! But we agree, living the "houseboat dream" has a certain cost. We would be happy to have you try maybe a third one of our houseboat :) Frédéric Team
