We met up with an australian friend that we knew through one of Melissa's family friends. She had just moved to the Netherlands on exchange. We had lunch with her and then went to an Australian pub, which had terrible outback decor. It wasn't the greatest place but we got then to play some classic Australian songs like you're the voice so we had a good ...
... reunited with us and we explored the red light district. Suffice to say, the red light district is pretty much what you expect but perhaps more public. The girls are on display but unlike what I expected the windows do offer variety. There are girls/women of all ages, shapes, colours and sizes (some sadly looked too young). Most girls take their job seriously trying to seduce her clients with sexy movements as you walk past while others are literally sitting by ...
... we initially met in Prague & are now in the same town a few days later. After thoroughly experiencing the RLD (for only 2€) we headed home ready for biking tomorrow! - Ari found out the hard way (by getting yelled at by a 'working girl') that phones/photos are not allowed in the district. Don't worry she managed to sneak one. - Annie eating chips and cottage cheese on the floor in the train station draws more strange looks than hookers in the red light district. ...

Afterwards to dinner at a Dutch place called 't Fornuis recommended by my hostess. Set menu (choice of about four dishes for each course) for €27 which seems very good value for excellent food. Nice waitress who wouldn't tolerate too much of my mangling of her native tongue, and kept switching to English, and the usual ubiquitous wifi so I could chat to Gray while I ...

In addition to checking out the Flower Market, the Nemo Children’s Museum (Renzo Piano) and the Maritime Museum on the first day, we decided to continue our quest to search out the next volume of the book series Jacob is reading: Artemis Fowl. Jane directed us to the two ...

Historical Traveler Reviews PhilDutch Houseboat Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam
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 ! 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.
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.
BARENDA EN JULIA
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!
Staying at (on?) Phildutch is a very cool experience! Four of us rented this lovely houseboat
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.
"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".
