Over all a clean and comfortable hotel, the staff at reception were friendly and helpful with some question we had about ferries and hiring the bikes the hotel provided. Breakfast was ok but I stuck to the continental options and the hot food provided wasn't pleasant looking. Our room was snug but comfortable and we had a large bed but... More

Clean rooms, reasonable location, good price....BUT, the staff are the worst I've ever encountered. The barman is rude, unpleasant and miserable, if you want a coffee through the day then allow half an hour to find a member of staff and then hope they can use the coffee machine. The nightman will serve alcohol in the main entrance all night,... More

It was a very pleasant surprise staying at the Amstel Botel. It was clean pleasant and friendly. There is a regular free ferry service to the centre of Amsterdam within a few minutes walk. The city is full of colour and the most helpful and friendly people you could wish to meet. I look forward to returning to Amsterdam and... More

Rooms are basic but good value. the bathroom is small but manageable. Free ferry ride to Central Station. Reasonable prices at the bar. This Botel is great for a cheap weekend away with a group of friends.

Room was clean and very basic which we expected. Room was noisy with constant tapping and banging but had a nice view out the window. Corridor stunk of weed despite being a non smoking hotel. Always had to wait for ages to be served at the bar throughout the day and two of the bar staff were very rude and... More

I can imagine this would be a charming and delightful concept in the spring or summer, staying on a boat. In Winter it's, well, cold and wet. Agree with previous reviewers - you can hear everything through the walls, down to thinking next door's morning alarm was ours! turning around in the tiny bast grooms is a bit of a... More

I had a lovely time at this botel. But it is no where near a 3 star, the bathroom is really small and food is not of a high quality. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This hotel is good for a weekend away, the free ferry is great but when I go to Amsterdam again I will be... More

Good value easy parking and only a 10 minute free ferry ride from central station its not luxury but I go to Amsterdam quite a bit and cant find better for the money in the central location with cheap parking nearby
