The washrooms are really tight, not enough room to move. Showers were very difficult to take since I'd keep bumping into the walls. Cleanliness was that of a 2 star, but you pay for what you get right? The ferry ride into town was pretty easy to figure out, but the last times take away from your nightlife (unless you... More

Where do I start with this place... I don't think it's a 3 star rating for a start just because of the standards and cleanses oh and location! Nice idea but me and my friend turned up at the central station thinking we could just walk and find the hotel however little did we know (thanks to Thomas cook) that... More

We stayed here as part of our TopDeck tour. Our room was on the bottom level which meant the water was just below our window level. Our room was small with a tiny bathroom which was clean but outdated and a bit mouldy. Breakfast was good. The botel was only a short ferry ride to the station. Fun idea for... More

114 Euros for 3 nights. Small rooms, fairly comfortable, OK bar and a nice outside deck. Breakfast is basic and busy later in the morning, so tables are piled with finished dishes. The ferry ride back and forth to Centraal Station adds a good hour onto your travel into town, once you include waiting times, and the ferry doesn't run... More

We paid € 84 for 1 night in this hotel on a Thursday night and for this money you can find far beter hotels in Amsterdam. The room is very small with 2 separate beds and the smallest bathroom. My room was very dirty with even stains on the ceiling. The hotel is located in the north of Amsterdam which... More
