I stayed on ArkNoa with my mom and aunt for 3 days (2 nights but we paid for a 3rd so we could relax on our last day) in April. It was my 4th time to Amsterdam but the 1st for my mom and aunt. ArkNoa has an excellent location and Rose gives easy instructions on how to reach the boat from the train station. It's located pretty much off of Prinsengracht canal and has an Albert Hein supermarket within 5 minutes walking distance...the same goes for bakeries, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. We slept fabulously aboard ArkNoa as it was in a quiet location and we enjoyed the view of the boats passing by! Rose was a kind lady and the boat was as described. The beds were comfortable and the place was clean enough but it's showing its age. Overall, we enjoyed our time and would have chosen to stay here again if we relived the experience! :)
