Stayed 4 nights from 18 March to 22 March inc. Had room on level 4 facing the water. It was silent all night long and slept soundly on a comfy double bed. You only have to do the minimum amount of internet research to find the boat (I think some people expect signposts off the plane to point them to their room!)
The trains run like clockwork from the airport basement to Amsterdam Centraal. If you head out of the railway station past platform 15 you'll see the ferries as you exit the station. The furthest one to your left is the one to NDSM wharf. A clock over the boarding jetty countdowns to the next ferry and unlike the UK, what it says is when the ferry comes and goes! It's free and unless youre very unlucky (we were lucky) it doesnt have any drunken Brits on it.
The staff on the Botel were very friendly and the breakfast fine (I gave the dodgy looking eggs a miss) and plentiful. You can easily find good hotels in central Amsterdam too, but if money is no object (up to 4 times the price) then go ahead and use them. Would not hesitate to recommend the Botel. Embrace the culture and go for it!!!!!!!!!!
