A Home From Home

There is no better place for sleeping than in one's own bed. Therefore it is advised for most travellers to stay where they are.

Our guesthouse, which came into being from the "Seamen's Mission," is not the usual kind of hotel. Comprising only six rooms in an old canal house, it is almost like a large apartment dwelling. It includes a day room with sitting area and a galley (no stove) for quick self-service.

Employees quickly get to know the guests and answer questions and requests with pleasure.

Touristensteuer 2020touristeuer

Die Gemeinde Amsterdam hat die Tarife der Touristensteuer abermals erhöht. Schon in den letzten Jahren mussten wir 7% des Übernachtungspreises abführen (neben 9% MWSt). Jetzt sind daneben noch Euro 3,00 pro Person und Nacht zu zahlen. Diese Steuererhöhung ist durch unsere bisherigen Preise nicht abzufangen - darum müssen wir sie leider an unsere Gäste weitergeben.

Für alle neuen Buchungen gilt ab sofort:

- Übernachtungspreis enthält Zimmer, Frühstück, WiFi und niederländische MWSt
- Zusätzlich zu zahlen ist die Touristensteuer von Euro 3,00 pro Person und Nacht

Annual Holidays 201221 06 02

"We are away" - our employees have already planned their most beautiful weeks of the year. The seafarers in the harbor will miss our visits on board for three weeks and our house does not accommodate any guests. We let ourselves spoil somewhere else - but respond to mails.

From 03.08.2020 to 31.08.2020 the guesthouse is closed..

Afterwards we welcome our guests with fresh energy again.



This is what Santa Claus is doing through the summer!21 06 11

The question of Santa Claus in the summer always concerned some people. Answers were available - they fill books.

We bring sailors to Christmas gifts and are therefore their "Santa Claus". And to us, every year at the beautiful summer time, the question arises: What will we do this year as a gift for seafarers who are Christmas on sea? They can not use phone cards there - so we need something different. We ask colleagues - look what others have done in previous years. Browse in catalogs. It is not easy to start planning christmas things with a summer cocktail. And quite honestly, the right thing has not crossed our mind yet. Do you have an idea?
