Amazing studio in the heart of Amsterdam!!! Couldn't asked for a better place to stay. Close to a lot of restaurants, attractions, and public transportation. Not to mention waking up to that view everyday in a nice quite neighborhood. Hands down 100x better than any hotel..... a Must have experience!!!

Our stay at Ark16 was very pleasant. The houseboat is very well equipped in every area (bed, kitchen and bathroom) everything is clean and very well kept by the owner, Annette. She is very nice and it was a pleasure to meet her. She supplied appropriate and special things for our 16 month baby: baby bed, an inflatable baby bath...

We stayed here for 3 nights and at times, we feel like staying in instead of heading out especially during the cold and...

We recently spent 3 nights at Ark16 for our anniversary. The accommodation was slightly basic, but had everything we needed for our stay.

Being a little way from the centre meant the...

We stayed for the weekend and had a lovely relaxing time. The houseboat has everything you need for a short stay. The bed was comfy and good selection of breakfast goodies provided. The owner was away during our stay so we didn't have the benefit of her advice or help but managed to work out the heating and WiFi! The...

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
ARK 16 is a B&B, a private studio with its own entrance on my houseboat overlooking the canal in a quiet area in the center of Amsterdam. Sleeps 2 adults and 2 children or 4 adults for 2 nights. There is a fully equipped kitchen, the fridge filled with make-it-your-own breakfast. Private toilet/bathroom. I live on the other site of the houseboat. It's in the best spot of Amsterdam!
