Welcome to Passenger Ship Avanti. A nice and different way to enjoy your B&B in Amsterdam is to stay aboard the hostel boat Avanti.

The Avanti is situated in the centre of Amsterdam. Docked at the Oosterdok in the 'Nautisch Kwartier' (Nautical Quarter), it is only a few minutes walk from the Central Station. From its location, many attractions of the city centre, such as the canals, Waterloo and Rembrandt Square, the Artis Zoo, many museums, etc. are at walking distance. Also facilities such as a bank, post office, supermarket, bike rental, etc. are close at hand.

The rooms are rented by groups as well as by individuals. The range of guests is very wide; it is very well possible that ten different nationalities have breakfast at the same time!

The Avanti has fourteen practical cabins with bunk beds (2 metres = over 6 ft 6"). At the end of the hall, there are four toilets and four showers. Upstairs, next to the salon, there are another two toilets.
Each cabin has its own wash basin and a cupboard. There is central heating throughout the ship.
In the salon you can buy drinks starting at € 1,50 each and a daily dinner menu for € 9,50.

Please note the following!:
- Check-in times are between 12.00 and 13.00 and between 18.00 and 19.00. We do not have a 24-hour reception, so if you want to arrive at a different time, pleas notify us by e-mail or mobile phone at least a day in advance. (Number / address will be shown on booking confirmation)
- Breakfast is from 08.30 till 10.00 and check-out time is 10.30.
- The remaining amount of your booking as well as your bar bill, etc. can only be paid in cash. The booking is to be paid upon arrival, the bar bill etc. before departure.
- No smoking in the cabins.
- No using of any kind of drugs in the ship.

* Walking from the Central Station, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to get to the Avanti. Leaving the Station at the front, you cross the large bridge and turn left. You walk along the Prins Hendrikkade towards the IJ-Tunnel. Just before the tunnel you will find the Oosterdok on your left.
A well recognisable 'neighbour' is Nemo, a large green building that looks like a ship. It is built right on top of the IJ-Tunnel.

* By car, the thing to do is get to the circular highway (Ring A10) of Amsterdam. From the North side of the A10 you take the exit S116 (Centrum) and go through the IJ-Tunnel. At the end of the tunnel you turn right at the traffic lights, onto the Prins Hendrikkade. Directly after the lights there is a bus stop. Turn right immediately after the bus stop (before the bridge) and you will go round the corner, down to the jetties of the Oosterdok.

* Parking space directly next to the jetties is limited and expensive (€ 3,40 per hour!). It is possible to use these spaces shortly to unload and then park in a different part of town, where parking is cheaper or even free. Free parking is only a few bus stops from the Oosterdok.
Prices are per person per night.

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
