“Great location, friendly and helpful owners. Just brilliant!”
Reviewed November 5, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Situated on the shore of a residential area to the East of Centraal this is a brilliantly restored ship. You can watch big container ships passing by in the distance and leisure craft pass by from the deck. Warm rolls and hot coffee for breakfast - lovely. The ship is quite large so the owners are nearby but the guest area is very private. The owners also do cycle hire which is super convenient - science park is an easy 20 minute cycle.

“An oasis of calm”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I cannot recommend de Dageraad highly enough, the ship itself is immaculate and the accommodation is well appointed with nice comfortable beds,and good facilities.
Sylvia and Theo offer a warm welcome and it was very nice meeting them, they live in the stern section of the ship which is close enough to be helpful but definitely not intrusive.

The ship provides an oasis of calm 15 minuets tram ride away from the crowds and madness of Central Station, the residential area around the ship is is extremely quiet and peaceful, the loudest things being the ducks and the occasional Hello from passing small boats.
The only small thing i would do to improve the accommodation would be to put some comfortable lounging chairs on deck for chilling out.

If you are thinking of booking de Dageraad, you wont be disappointed !

“Could Not Have Asked For More”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a very special place to stay, from the moment we met Theo and Sylvia we felt at home. Everything about 'The Boat De Dageraad' spells, Exceptional Comfort. That, plus canal views, the gentle lapping of water on the hull which lulls one to sleep at night, this is part of what makes this accommodation special. With that and the best welcome, including a bottle of wine and Dutch cookies when we arrived, we felt very privileged to have stayed there and meet such accommadating host's. We hope to come back one day.

“Loved it”

Just spent two days on this lovely boat. Their restoration of the boat was done beautifully. It was clean, quaint and the hosts, Sylvia and Theo were always available and wonderful to talk with. Wish we could have stayed longer. If you have a chance, be sure to experience this. It was a short walk to the bus lines which take you anywhere in Amsterdam and they were very helpful as far as a map and information. Lovely continental breakfast in the am, again done with class. Thanks for the great stay!!!
