"Somewhere Else" is a bed & breakfast on the beautiful old ship ‘Cornelia’, located in the 'Oude Houthaven'. In about 10 minutes walking distance form Central Station you will find this charming B&B. The private guest accommodation is in the old skipper’s quarters, with an entrance through the wheelhouse. On all sides there’s a wide view over the water, even from the toilet! This bed and breakfast reflects the ultimate Amsterdam experience. The friendly atmosphere in the area almost feels like a village. This property is situated in the Old Wood Harbour. And after only a short walk the Amsterdam Canals and the Jordaan will surround you. From the first time you hop aboard the “Cornelia”, a houseboat steeped in history, and built in 1905, you will immediately feel relaxed and at home in the cozy, charmingly updated waterfront bed and breakfast Somewhere Else. Whether you are travelling for leisure, adventure or convenience, Somewhere Else is the ideal place for all the experiences, culture and history that Amsterdam has to offer. The B&B is close to Amsterdam’s Central Station, and easily accessible by car, by foot, or arrival by bus. When you arrive at Somewhere Else and meet your host Els, take a step through your private wheelhouse-entrance where you can enjoy panoramic views and the beautiful Dutch skies. Enjoy your morning coffee, take an afternoon nap, read a book, or simply enjoy the waterfront view. A small set of steps leads to your smartly styled and elegant sleeping quarters. A massive bed that sleeps two awaits you, along with your own private enclosed toilet and shower. Even from here you have a wide view over the water! Sample a complimentary fruit tray and store organic produce and delicacies from local markets and shops in your own private fridge. A microwave and other necessities required to prepare a simple meal are already on board for your use. Breakfast is not served.
Guests have private access to their room as well as their wheelhouse.
Feel free to contact us on our phone during your stay, if you have any questions about the houseboat, or if you need any recommendations or tips on how to get around in the area and city. We're always happy to help. We are also able to meet up with you personally if desired. Just shout the word and we'll be at the spot!
The "Oud houthaven" area is a centrally located, and very quiet harbour on the river ‘het IJ'. The famous canals and ‘de Jordaan’ with many small shops, bars, and restaurants are within walking distance. Here you will also find the weekly organic market on Saturdays (Noordermarkt). Even closer is the hidden gem on and around ‘Prinseneiland’, an area with old warehouses, little wharves, beautifully gabled houses, and quaint bridges. The nearby Westerpark is a great park to exercise or relax and enjoy (live) music .
Somewhere Else is easily accessible from the highway and ring road (A10), as well as within walking distance from the Central Station. A bus connection is available also (bus 48).
Freshly made up beds with the finest quality linen & towels (2 per person) will be waiting for you upon arrival. We want to welcome you into a clean and cosy home!
