Staying aboard of the Lotus is a unique and affordable way to stay with larger groups, on an original dutch barge build in 1889, close to the city center. Although the ship is over a hundred years old, it has all the luxury you need, heating througout the ship, hot and cold running water in all the bedrooms and a large living room with a fully equipped open plan kitchen, it invites for a nice sit together, cooking your own meals and having a beer from the onboard beedraft.[kegs can be bought with us] All the bedrooms have fully made beds and we provide towels for every guest. Last but not least there are two bathrooms and two seperate toilets on board. Feel free to contact us to discuss all the possibilities to make your visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. ...Staying aboard of the Lotus is a unique and affordable way to stay with larger groups, on an original dutch barge build in 1889, close to the city center.
