Northern Holland region

Amsterdam is a very well-known city and one of the gates to Europe. Many tourists fly into Amsterdam, stay a couple of days here, and then extend their trip to other cities in Europe. As they fly back home from Amsterdam, some stay a couple of extra days here, just to relax, and see and do what they didn't on the first part of their trip. Of course, you can do it the other way around too: going first to other capitals, and then stay a couple of days in Amsterdam.

Because Amsterdam organises a great number of congresses and other big events during the whole year, we host also many businessmen, musicians, dancers and artists in general. We have great experience with that, so you are in good hands too.

Maybe it's interesting to know how Amsterdam can influence your vacation or business trip - and what to expect from our city and the people.

Amsterdam is a very small city, although there is so much to see. You can walk anywhere in the centre – and by bicycle or boat you'll see a different perspective of everything. Not talking about staying in a houseboat: it's really a great experience (and we have many to offer). Amsterdam is definitely a fun and very friendly capital - and everybody speaks good English! In which other city in Europe can you get that all?


The canal where this houseboat is located, unlike many others in the city, is very quiet indeed, so you have a good night sleep guaranteed. It is very residential, yet touristic, and you will be at walking distance to the well-known attractions of Amsterdam, like The Jordaan, Leidseplein, Vondelpark and the canal belt. Leidseplein - with all its shopping, cafés and theaters - is only 5 minutes walking. The Museum Square, the Flower Market, the Jordaan, the beautiful Vondelpark and many other highlights are also within few minutes reachable on foot.

If you want to go to further areas you can always get one of our trams just a few meters from your house.

If you are coming by car you can park it on the street in front of your boat or in the Europarking garage.

This was my third trip to Amsterdam, but both other times I'd stayed in a hotel. Staying in a house boat was so much better. The location of On the Water Studio is perfect - a short and pleasan… More

Great to hear that you have enjoyed our stay so much. And thanks for your time writing a review :-)

"Perfect little hideaway"

Our host Manam was very welcoming and recommended some amazing local restaurants.
The Water Studio was exceptionally clean, light and airy, blissfully quiet and the location was perfect for us - a short stroll to the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam and quiet enough to feel at home with the locals.
My favourite memory of the Water Studio is lounging on the decking in the glorious sunshine, sipping a glass of Rose wine and watching the boats sail by.

Nice to hear you have enjoyed your stay. Many thanks for your review!

"Essenziale ed accogliente...come Amsterdam stessa!"

Ottima posizione, vicina alla zona dei Teatri, comoda con i mezzi ma tranquilla e silenziosa. Ottima pulizia, simpaticissima padrona di casa. 4 giorni di super-relax… More

Grazie per la recensione. Buono a sapersi ti è piaciuto il soggiorno. Spero di rivedervi presto.
