We stayed in this Botel for 3 nights whilst in Amsterdam for a long weekend. It is a very quirky hotel and certainly an experience! The boat is securely moored so no worries of sea-sickness! The room we stayed in was of a decent size for 2 people (especially considering it is a boat) and was stocked with everything we... More

Can someone tell the taxi drivers when they move the Botel. We took a taxi from the airport to the Botel. It took a long time as the taxi driver didn't realised it had been moved. €85 euros later he switched the meter off. Upon arrival we were greeted very nicely at the reception to check in. The staff are... More

The botel is great value for money. It's very clean the beds are comfortable and once you understand the ferry and where to get them it's easy, and relaxed. We stayed for a long weekend breakfast was excellent and it was quiet at night time. Perfect location to get away from it all. We will go back again. Amsterdam is... More

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 Our room was small with a tiny bathroom which was clean but outdated and a bit mouldy.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

Great fun place to stay - the whole experience of getting here from the Central Railway Station is just very different from the usual taxi ride - You get on a boat to get to the Botel ! Rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable Staff are always friendly and helpful Breakfast is good and there is also small... 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
