I've stayed at the Botel twice this Summer. Its a unique experience, I've never had a room in a boat before. Its also convenient, the ferry service makes it easy to get back and forth to Amsterdam Centraal, but it does take some time. For me it was nice to get away, but you should consider this when making your choice.
For my money, and security, I'll stay at the Botel whenever I'm in Amsterdam.
Note: Make sure you have a mobile phone to call the shuttle if you're taking the ferry after midnight. Also note: The Wifi is good for little more than sending emails.
