This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It's an amazing experience to sleep on a boat. Everything is very well done, the rooms are not big, but everything is there. And, after all, you only are in your room when you're going to sleep or when you need to take a shower ( especially in the mornings). The other times you take breakfast in the large 'kind of hall' or you're visiting the city or you're enjoying the view on the deck. Hans is extremely kind and open-minded.
We loved our stay at Gandalf Passenger Ship.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great place to stay and much nicer than a hotel. The view from the living area is what you would pay a high price for at a luxury hotel. The cabins are small but adequate and we had an en suite bathroom.
Hans is very friendly and helpful and all in all we would definitely recommend it over a hotel.

For the price, this ship is a great accommodation and a unique location for your stay in Amsterdam! Though the rooms are quite small (you still have 2 single beds and your private en suite bathroom) it is just fine for a place to stay located right next to the Nemo Science Center. Hans, the owner is quite friendly and offers breakfast every morning along with coffee and tea throughout the day. I have a gluten free dietary requirement and he was very accommodating and really went out of his way to make sure I had something each morning! The ship is clean and comfortable.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I have been several times in Amsterdam, first time I was in a flat, second in a hotel and a hostel, and the 3rd in the Gandalf passenger ship and has been the best choice I could have made. Great place, confortable bed, good breakfast, and very nice staff. Thanks for everything!

5 Stars for everything. Hans Petrus is a great host. I loved the location, hanging out in the common area in late evening to read and talk with other guests and Hans. Easy for me to do short walk from the station (follow signs for Nemo Museum) and back for my train to plane as well as amble around town; will stay here again. Cabins / rooms for sleeping are small of course but that did not bother me as it was my purpose to get out and about and see Amsterdam. Hans is welcoming and kind. Yep this was a wonderful stay in the loveliest of cities.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It(He,She) is enough near the Red Neighborhood that is the zone that more I like.
The breakfast is very good and with enough quantity.
The only thing that I did not like is that we were 9 days and, though they changed the sheets once and the towels frequently, they did not clean any day.
