An old boat that was renovated and transformed into a floating hotel. Rather clean rooms, a bit smelly and very small as you might expect on an old boat. Location is just next to the ferry that takes you to Amsterdam every 20 min. Overall I would say its cost effective - much cheaper then Amsterdam city. Suitable for those... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with a friend for a short trip to Amsterdam. - Getting There - If coming from Central Station, follow the ferry signs out of the station. Cross the road and turn left, keep walking until you reach the ferry dock. Take the NDSM ferry (takes 15 minutes or so). You'll see the Botel on... More

As previously mentioned the rooms are tiny however they are spotless! Couldn't fault them! The minimal time you spend in your room on a city break they perfectly met our needs. Breakfast was okay, the continental side was fine but the cooked part pretty poor. The ferries run very regularly from central to take you to the hotel. Early morning... More

Had a brilliant time in a lovely room looking towards the centre of Amsterdam. Breakfast was plentiful, good choice and good quality. There are no coffee making facilities in the room but you can purchase coffee at the bar and take it to your room. The ferry runs every 15-20 minutes throughout the day. if flying to Schiphol there is... More
