+ The Owners are friendly and helpful + Really clean + The cool-factor of being on a boat - Tiny rooms (not for claustrophobic people) - Really noisy as the walls are really thin. Groups of guests coming back drunk from partying in the early morning aren't especially concerned with being respectful and not making noise for the sleeping guests.... More

Came here after seeing it was very cheap and included breakfast. Me and my friend loved staying here, my friend initially had concerns the joys of Amsterdam and a rocking boat would not mix, but the boat was steady as a rock. The couple who own the place were lovely, the breakfast was continental and everything you would need, we... More

First impressions when walking onto the boat was WOW. I was so impressed by the Fleur boat. It was perfect for what we wanted. Me and my partner needed somewhere to rest out head in between venturing out into amsterdam. Location for me was perfect, 10 minute walk from central station, 2 minute walk to the bus stop, 10 minute... More

We stayed on the Hotelboat for one night on 02/01/2015. The boat is the first one you see on the Jetty, (although we didn't read signs properly and got lost) if you take the time to read the signs at the end of the jetty it's very easy to find. We walked about 10 minutes from the Central Station, so... More

The owner was very friendly and answered all of our questions upon arrival - including a tip about a nice lunch available from the top floor of the library. It was also great to be able to check-in at 12:00. The location is great, being close to the train station and reasonably close to the city-center. I slept through breakfast,... More

The rooms do not offer a lot of space and the interieur ist also not amazing. BUT... it is a houseboat, so you can't expect a big room with fancy beds... And so we really liked it. it was cozy and an amazing experience! The location is super, just a few minutes and you reach the train station and the... More

The boat has a nice communal area with wifi and free tea and coffee and the breakfast in the morning is good. The owners are... More

Staying on the Amsterdam hotel boat was such a fun experience! It's a short walk to the station and the city centre so in a really good location, and the sunrise/sunset across the water was priceless. I stayed here whilst InterRailing in the summer and it really added to the experience. The lady who hosted us was so welcoming and... More
