The Amsterdam Water Lodge is a small but cosy wooden cottage set above one of the wider canals of Amsterdam. The lodge has a neighbouring boat on one side (whith the house of the owner and a Bed and Breakfast), a bridge on the other and nothing but water and a beautiful tree opposite, creating a nice and quiet oasis in town. Beautiful birds, ducks and swans will keep you company.

The Water Lodge is located in the (cool and upcoming) eastern part of town, quite close to the Artis Zoo, the Tropical Museum and the famous ‘ Dapper’ market. It only takes you ten minutes on bike or by tram to get to the monumental heart of town. Damsquare, the Jordaan area, the Rijks- and van Goghmuseum, they’re all in pedaling distance!

But the east side itself is quite cool and upcoming. With lots of shops, parks, modern architecture and sport facilities. Click here to get an overview of great things to do around the Amsterdam Water Lodge.

The best ways to travel in the city are on bike or on tram/bus.

You can rent bikes at the Amsterdam Water Lodge (Euro 5 per bike per day). You can also rent bikes at MacBike (Central Station and other locations in the city) at a cost of around Euro 14 per day.

The tramstop is right across from the lodge. Tram 14 will get you straight to Waterlooplein and Dam square is just 10 minutes.
