When you think of Amsterdam, the first picture that comes to the mind is of beautiful canals, with boats slowly cruising in it and tourists looking up through their camera lenses. Those boats sure are a good way to see Amsterdam, but how do you like the idea of staying in a boat for a night.
Yes, you can do so in Amsterdam. It not just makes up for an unique experience, but you can also get them for really cheap prices if you book at the right time. I stayed on the Vita Nova in January and it costed me just 32 Euros, which included breakfast for two. It is one of the boats parked in Oosterdok opposite to the Nemo Science Centre, there are about 7 like it.
The location is 20 mins walk from the Dam Square and a 15 mins walk from the Amsterdam Central Station, so you'll never be far away from the action.
Here are some pictures from my stay.
