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

My room was very dirty with even stains on the ceiling. The hotel is located in the north of Amsterdam which... More

It's no oil painting. Very dated but cheap as chips and very clean. Breakfast was lovely and lots to choose from and buffet style so you can fill your boots. If you get sea sick however this is not for you, for at least an hour after getting off the boat I felt like I was rocking from side to... More

Nice concept of converting ship into hotel. Breakfast was really poor... they had everything we needed,clean room, the bathrooms are really small but almost complete ( no hair dryer ) . It's only 10 minutes away from the city center by ferry, so you barely notice you're all the way across the river. I just have to say on the... More
