      Historical Traveler Reviews PhilDutch Houseboat Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam

      Fabulous Hospitaity


      Fabulous hospitality, clean well/ stocked accommodations, gorgeous details throughout the boat. It's really a wonderful place to stay. Thank's Efren for such a great place to call home during our stay.

      Sorry for the lock out, thanks for coming to our rescue. We will certainly spread the word to our American friends about your houseboat, and I will inquire about linking to your website from my parents travel/ Self-catering rentals website at Great Trips Unlimited.

      We love Amsterdam, love the Phildutch Houseboat, loved Efren !

      See you next time !

      Wonderful Houseboat


      Wonderful houseboat ! The swans and ducks were a treat to feed. We both just love Amsterdam. Thank you !

      Great Amsterdam Boathouse


      When we arrived at the boathouse we were absolutely astounded at how good everything was. The facilities were very modern and all the essentials were within 5 minutes walk from the bouathouse. I have already recommended the boathouse to my family and I wouldn't hesititate to suggest it to anyone who asks.

      Loved it!


      Four of us stayed in the houseboat a couple of nights and were very comfortable. We were very close to many major attractions and the host, Efren, was very courteous and helpful. We will definately reserve the houseboat again for our return visit. Efren, thanks for a wonderful B&B experience!

      The best B&B in Amsterdam-Phildutch!


      What a wonderful experience. The stay on the houseboat made our holiday a true Dutch experience. Efren is a wonderful host! Everything was sooooo clean and the terrace, feeding the ducks and swans at breakfast was an experience for my daughter, Julia. I can recommend this B&B to anyone. You are so near the main tram line, the Rijkmuseum , Van Gogh and the wonderful market.

      Do try this? We had the best holiday! Thank you, Efren! Baie dankie en voorspoed, Sien jou weer!

      Baie dankie vir alles.


      Perfect Place


      The houseboat was a wonderful alternative to a hotel! Although it did not have television hook-up while I was there, the accomodations excelled in all other respects! The houseboat is in close proximity to all the main attractions, while the canal itself is quiet, serene and beautiful!

      The owner is a cheerful and helpful man by the name of Efren who is eager to accomodate any special requests. I hope to stay here again!

      An awesome lodging experience !


      Staying at (on?) Phildutch is a very cool experience! Four of us rented this lovely houseboat

      and recommend it to anyone and everyone headed

      for Amsterdam! You'll have ducks, swans and

      other such visitors, some of which will eat out of

      your hand - literally! The nearest tram stop is less

      than two blocks away, so you have easy access to

      the whole city - for instance, you'll be just two stops

      from Blumenmarkt and that area's major shopping;

      or only minutes from the Anne Frank House and

      Museum. Several good restaurants are literally just

      down the street. The website is very comprehensive - check it out! If you're traveling with others and would need two hotel rooms, you'll actually save about 50 euros nightly staying at this houseboat instead! My wife and I are mid-40's and traveled with my in-laws, in their 70's, and we all absolutely loved our stay at Phildutch! Efren's a terrific host and will be

      as helpful or as invisible as you wish him to be. I've

      traveled a lot, and this has been one of my very

      favorite places of all time!

      The Way to Enjoy Amsterdam


      What a wonderful discovery. Living on the canals is the only way to experience Amsterday and this houseboat was not only comfortable, but well designed and furnished. The propietor was a wonderful host. Clean, wonderful views of the water and surrounding neighborhood. Convenient, most major attractions within walking distance. We travel a lot and this was one of our best finds.

      INCREDIBLE - Best Service/Best Location/Best All Around


      You want a spectacular location to visit this incredible city? This is the place to be. You want a host that is constantly smiling, ready to provide for all of your needs and maintains an impeccable B&B? You will not be disappointed. You want a place to say in this incredibly overpriced city? With large rooms, clean facilities and an ever present bustle of natural activity (swans and ducks at your doorstep to greet you in the morning)? Book Now here.

      As an individual that travels internationally for business (+200K miles/year), I frequently stop in Amsterdam just to put my feet on solid ground and refresh my mind from work. When available, I would never stay anywhere but this B&B.


      Phildutch : The best Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam !!!


      "We have stayed in several different types of accommodation on our regular visits to Amsterdam. Without doubt the "PHILDUTCH HOUSEBOAT B & B" has been by far the best experience. This luxurious accommodation is ideally situated & has easy access by tram, canal boat or on foot to all the cities attractions & conveniences. The information about the "PHILDUTCH HOUSEBOAT B & B" included in the website is accurate, unlike some we have experienced. Mr. Efren Quintana, our host and the proprietor can be easily contacted & is on hand to deal with any concerns or requests. In our opinion, given the high standard of accommodation & location, the "PHILDUTCH HOUSEBOAT B & B" is undoubtedly the best value for money accommodation in Amsterdam. The only advice we would offer is to book early to avoid disappointment, as the Phildutch is quite deservedly developing a reputation of being high quality accommodation at a reasonable rate. We certainly recommend giving it a try".

      ... and the bets toilet floor I have ever seen: concrete studded with beer bottle tops to create a mosaic effect!  I started with a fresh German-style Dutch weissbier, moved on to a delicious pumpkin ale, and scoffed a hefty chunk of goats cheese with it, and finished with a lovely creamy porter which seemed the beat choice to warm me up before I headed off into the winds again.  Like everything else in Amsterdam, the prices were high, but in ...

      Day 19:

      They say your perspective changes after you have paid for sex in Amsterdam. After a breakfast buffet of Bread salami, ham cheese and an assortment of fruits we all made our way onto the bus. After about 15 minutes' drive from the inner city we were driving in the country surrounded by farmland (no fences just creeks). We arrived at our destination a small farm that produces Cheese and Clogs. We all piled into the Cheese cellar, a smell hit us ...

They were taken to Auschwitz where Anne died one month prior to liberation, from typhus. Her father was the only one, out of 8 ppl hiding, who survived.
