Ivan`s Amsterdam Botel Accomodation
Amsterdam House Barge
A truly unique local experience awaits visitors to Ivan`s Amsterdam botel accomodation. The "Tanja" is moored just five minutes walk from Amsterdam`s central station and is ideal for backpacker`s, fun-seekers and adventurous "oldies" looking for something just that little bit different when seeking out a truly authentic Amsterdam holiday.
The adjacent city centre area is alive with possibilities from pubs to cycle hire and from dance clubs to canal trips, shopping and restaurants:- But after that busy day or night, why not just stretch out and chill out on "Tanjas" decks and terraces and watch the water borne world go by? This budget priced accomodation also offers a true Amsterdam rarity at a little extra cost:- A car parking space!
The "Tanja" lacks nothing in character and Ivan is more than happy to share his home with all lovers of "on-the-water" living. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and there are none of the many restrictions evident on larger botels such as limited access to the decks or an "on deck" smoking ban.
Amsterdam Botel Accomodation
Ivan offers two living spaces aboard this Amsterdam Botel, apart from his own:- You will find that each area is a fair bit more spacious than that normally associated with budget accomodation.
The "Tanja" has a converted wheelie house and also a converted sailors dormitory at lower level available. Prices are very reasonable and range from only 30-35 Euro charge per night per person. The car parking spot is available at an extra 10 Euros per night.
Ivan comes from a large family of globe trotting brothers and sisters ( below he is with his niece Lania from Texas) and his ability to speak 6 languages ( approximate!) reflects this background and his families caribbean island Dutch colonial roots. He is usually on hand to offer any information required on the nearby "things to do" and is happy to share his wide local knowlege of the fascinating city that he has come to call home.
