Expertly designed by an esteemed architect, Lightship Amsterdam offers a getaway in the heart of the Dutch capital that is truly one of a kind. This 70-year-old British Lightship - aptly named - now sits moored in North Amsterdam and houses two separate B&B suites. Each has been lovingly renovated by the owners to celebrate the ship's maritime past, while the modern amenities make for a luxurious stay. Notable features include a free minibar, separate bathrooms, free breakfast, a large sun deck on either end of the boat and an amazing vantage point from the ship's light. The suites can be rented individually or as one, making this boathouse bolt hole perfect for couples, a couple of couples or a small group of friends. And with its location just a short paddle from the city centre, you won't have far to go to explore all that Amsterdam has to offer.
The Lightship has two suites for guests to choose from: the Machinery Space and Upper Store. Each has been meticulously decorated to celebrate an aesthetic that combines modern, industrial and minimalist ideals. Floor-to-ceiling windows line the rooms, showcasing the cast iron interior of the ship. Each suite has a comfy king-sized bed, bathroom, coffee pod machine, free mini-bar and small dining table for two. The upper store also has a stylish standalone tub which sits to the side of the entrance - the perfect place to soak after a long day exploring the Dutch capital. Should you wish to catch some sun, or simply survey the arresting industrial views of the city, the front of the boat functions as a large sun terrace.
In Amsterdam, you will never want for things to see and do. Why not take a canal cruise for a unique tour of the city? Or perhaps you'd rather bike along the famous canals? For those who enjoy a tipple, the city is well known for its many beers and is home to the Heineken brewery. The tours come highly recommended. Other places of interest include the Anne Frank Museum, the Van Gogh museum, the De Wallen district, the Rijksmuseum and Stadsschouwburg Theatre, to name a few. The city is also famed the world over for its canal-lined streets, coffee shop culture, unique architecture and nightlife. The areas of Leidseplein and the Rembrandtplein are both popular nightlife centres for tourists, with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.
