A charming and original accommodation in a quiet, open space just outside of the city center, which is only a 10-minute walk from the barge. Yes, it really is a barge! Even on a chilly autumn day, it's cozily warm. It has plenty of walking paths nearby to stretch out and walk the dog in the morning. The canal view also gets you a romantic sunrise and lots of sweet light. When you open the room window, you're almost eye level with the water. I thought ducks would drift in the room! The staff was patient with my fledgling Dutch and perfectly trilingual when I gave up. The breakfast is delicious and generous. The room was small but clean and efficiently retrofitted, as rooms in ships usually are. Why stay anywhere else?
