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

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

Unusual location, out in the old dockyard but right next to the free Ij Ferry to Central Station so a river trip to start and end the day....bonus. Simple but pleasant cabin with amazing views down the river [and potential sunrise/sunsets] Good breakfast, certainly enough selection Great value in an interesting setting surrounded by historic vessels.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our stay. It has (as expected) small rooms but they are clean and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. The ferries that run between the dock and the station are regular and reliable.
