Terrible service, filthy rooms, impossible to find, rude staff ... Everyother Boat in Amsterdam is cleaner, friendly and has much bigger beds. DO NOT STAY AT THIS PLACE!!!

Management response:

This man was not even inside our botel, he could not not find it because he did not read our mails with directions how to go to the botel. Then he checked in by one of our colleges and now he is very angry that we withdraw the first night of his credit card. While he was not even inside... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, i think some of the reviews are very over exagerate. The rooms were small, but there was enough room to get changed, have a shower, and sleep comfortably. The moisture on the ceiling only occurs if the shower door is open or the port hole is not open, this only happened to us on... More

I've read a lot of negative reviews for this place both on TripAdvisor and on HostelWorld and I have to say, I didn't think it was that bad. We only stayed for two nights, and although I wouldn't say it was the best lodging I've ever had...it was safe, it had free wifi, and it was clean enough. I wouldn't... More

Botel Zebra's cabins are soooooo tiny and not very clean. The beds are made for 5 year olds. The tiny bathrooms are dirty and the shower curtains might be 100 years old. The "continental" breakfast consist of dry old bread and tasteless cold meet. I would really not recommend this botel to ladies or "romantic couples". Hope this helps. ;-)

Extremely tiny rooms, so much humidity inside the rooms you can't barely breathe, you can see water drops everywhere because of the humidity, toilet doesn't flush properly. I stayed there for 3 nights and I couldn't sleep at all, the first night I was shivering, the second night we turned on the heating and it was so hot it was... More

As we travelled over the new year and booked accommodation at the last minute this was basically the only place available. Basically there is a family living on the boat and they are really lovely people and this is their home but there needs to be some major changes in order for their business to survive. The rooms are only... More

This Botel is tiny, the rooms are tiny. I didn't like the fact that there was no area to sit in on the boat. Other boats in that area were available after hours to hang out in, in this one it was your cramped, pea sized room or outside. I didn't find the owners very welcoming at all, getting just... More

1. upsides: there are only two good points about this botel: breakfast is good (the cook is a very nice filipino guy) and so is its location, walking distance from the Central Station. 2. downsides: We spent 4 nights here and, as we had to pay cash upfront, could not leave after our 1st night. The cabin is incredibly small,... More
