Free high-speed Wi-Fi with private router is available. Stereo has a connector for smart phones. Guide books, board and card games also available. BED- AND BATHROOMS All bedrooms have a nicely finished private bathroom. Bedroom 1 is built in the bow of the ship, richly finished with mahogany wood. This bedroom has a large double bed (180X200) with a manually adjustable slatted bed base (head and foot). Next to this bedroom: bathroom with shower, bath and toilet. Bedroom 2: Extra large double bed (210X210) with ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. Bedroom 3: two single beds can be placed separately or together, as double bed. Next to this bedroom: 3rd bathroom with shower and toilet. All bathrooms are nicely finished with slate tiles, modern fittings, rain and hand shower, hairdryer, towels and hand soap. Unlimited hot water available. Shared laundry room (with washer & dryer & iron/ironing board). LOCATION The boat is moored at the Amstel River, the main canal of Amsterdam, on the edge of the Pijp neighborhood, one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts of Amsterdam. You will find bars, restaurants, shops and public transport around you at walking distance. A nice 15 to 20 minute stroll along the Amstel River brings you to the central canal area and the major nightlife area Rembrandtplein, the Hermitage Museum or Waterlooplein Fleemarket. As is the case for almost all barges on the river Amstel, we do have a neighbour boat on the river. You can still see the river from the topside but not out of the portholes in the river side. More
