About Passenger Ship Avanti

The Passenger Ship Avanti is a floating B&B accommodation located opposite the Nemo Science Museum in Amsterdam's Nautical Quarter. Docked at the Oosterdok, this converted boat is just ten-minutes' walk from the city's main train station, Centraal.

The Avanti has 15 authentically decorated guest cabins, all of which feature wooden bunk beds, a sink and traditional portholes looking out over the water. Bathroom facilities are shared.

Guests are welcome to make use of the vessel's shared kitchenette area and relax in the communal lounge. Complementary Wi-Fi is provided throughout.

A complementary breakfast consisting of muesli, hams, cheeses, vegetables, bread, and juice is served daily. Free tea and coffee is available all day. Guests can enjoy a beer at the bar or on the terrace in the evenings.

Nieuwmarkt is 13-minutes' walk from the Passenger Ship Avanti; Rembrandtplein is around one-and-a-half kilometres away.

Positive Reviews

Genial hosts are extremely welcoming

The couple who run the Avanti are absolutely lovely people who strive to ensure every single guest feels suitably welcome and comfortable They'll do whatever it takes, from inviting you out on a spontaneous boat trip to organising spur-of-the-moment BBQs, to help ensure their guests take nothing but pleasant memories home with them Outstanding hospitality.

Great place to keep to a budget

Having kitchenette facilities on board is extremely beneficial if you're trying to stick to a budget as it enables you to buy cheap food and prepare your own meals The snacks and drinks available for purchase on the boat are pretty cheap too, so this is definitely the place to head if you're keen to make your money go a little farther.

It's a boat!

C'mon – how often do you get to sleep on board a boat! In the centre of Amsterdam!!

Negative Reviews

Stairs are a little precarious

You'll need your sea-legs about you when staying here as the stairs are pretty steep The spiral steps are a particular challenge as there is no hand rail to steady yourself with.

Cabins are small

If you're after spacious accommodation then this isn't the place for you That being said, there's still enough space for you to comfortably stow your luggage and enjoy a decent night's sleep.

Wi-Fi can be a bit temperamental

Connecting to (and staying connected to) the Avanti's Wi-Fi can be a bit of a struggle, especially below deck.
