Houseboat Ms Luctor

Top choice boat in Jordaan & the West

A brimming organic breakfast basket is delivered to you each morning at this metal-hulled, mahogany-panelled 1913 houseboat, moored in a quiet waterway 10 minutes' walk from Centraal Station (five from the Jordaan). Eco initiatives include solar power, two bikes to borrow and a canoe for canal explorations. Minimum stay is two nights.

Guests can take an extraordinary private tour with a local fisherman and scientist, Piet, to see waterways not usually accessible to the public (per person €75).
