If you have never been to Amsterdam before your first visit should be a memorable one and thats why ive taken to Trip Advisor to tell everyone about the Botel. It wasnt my first visit to Amsterdam as I used to live and work here back in the day 2001-2003 and remember people talking about this moored up vessel at... More

First stop on our tour, didn't spend much time in the room at all. However the room was clean and neat (Good for a couple hours shut eye). The hotel is conveniently situated close to Amsterdam. The ferry ride you have to take to the hotel adds a bit of flavour to the whole experience, especially if one is not... More

I acutally liked this hotel, but very basic which is just really what we were looking for, clean and comfort for returning from day out. we had a great view from out window. It would be reviewed as excellent but its too basic for that wont really recommend for families with young children either. We didnt have a meal but... More

Came here in Feb 2014, just used it for a place to sleep and wash and for that I can't complain! The breakfast came in with the package but we were too hungover to eat anything (lol). Amsterdam is the nutsssss!!!! Would stay here again as easy to access from the city centre on the little ferry.

Very small could hardly fit the suitcase through. Was practically showering over the toilet it was that small, shower tap squirted water to the side which wet the entire bathroom. Toilet was not cleaned when we arrived. Breakfast was awful. Close walk to ferry to take to main Amsterdam. Plus side the staff were extremely friendly!

I had to visit Amsterdam on business and decided to add on a few days for sightseeing. I opted to stay at the Botel, Amstel NL due to the reasonable prices on offer. I booked a double room with en-suite and breakfast included. On arrival I was warmly greeted and as I had arrived early, was asked to wait in... More

A great couple of days in Amsterdam rooms are very small very hard to fit two people! Have to catch a ferry boat to get into the city! Breakfast was ok nothing special. I found this hotel a little out of the way but it did have a couple of cool bars near by!

We have just had a great weekend in Amsterdam - so much to see and do! We stayed in 'The Botel' which we found very good. It is quite basic, with cabin bedrooms, the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were very clean. Small shower rooms with sink and toilet, but plenty of hot water! Clean towels every day!...

Arrived 2am from Berlin via Hamburg so the 24hr reception was very useful, Signage to get to the Botel could be better as we could see it but couldn't drive to it, Car Parking could also be improved although it is free so deal with it. Breakfast was an experience but once you have figured the routine, again it's fine.... More
