Stayed here for 3 nights. It's pretty decent, very clean and beds were comfortable. Shower and toilet room is really small but you are on a boat. Shower was powerful too. Bar area was okay. Places to sit and the barman was cool. Chatty and just a pleasant guy. The breakfast was fine, what you get in every hotel. I'd...

I have looked at other reviews and the opinion largely depends on where your room is. That being said, our room was directly opposite the ferry service and was so noisy we barely slept. Wish I had taken earplugs! Furthermore, we were given a twin room (this was due to the booking company not the hotel) and so requested a...

Ok so to be completely fair, the hotel was cheap as part of a package and had decent reviews but i was still wary. Got there after the ferry journey to be met with a clean, quite spacious room, so was quite relieved. Staff seemed friendly. That was where the good stopped. Firstly, the beds are ridiculous. It is like...

Unique experience to sleep on a boat. Botel is really affordable and the location is ideal with the ferry taking you to the city center for free. The room is a bit small and so is the shower. All in all, this is enough for 3-4 nights to visit Amsterdam. We would go back to this hotel but next time...

Booked a romantic break through Ramsay World travel Dundee who highly recommended the botel. Checked in saw room and didnt even unpack. Prisoners are housed in better conditions in prison. Complained to staff who were rude and arrogant saying that is what you get. Would avoid at all costs. Romantic break with partner in single beds.

The room was small and basic, but very clean and comfortable. Great views of the harbour. Staff were helpful. There was a free ferry across to Amsterdam Central Station every half hour, a 10 minute crossing which is a lovely way to start and end the day. There was a reasonable choice for breakfast. An excellent Indo Asian restaurant on...

“We had rooms on top deck (fourth floor) which had best views. Would not like the ones down near the water! Small bathroom/shower had high door step to room, again a nautical thing! Stairs on ship were very very steep! (Not like the Grand Staircase on the Titanic). But there was a (busy) Lift if you preferred to wait. The Bar was simple, bright and cheerful with good value drinks and snacks. Breakfast could be very crowded at peak times.”
