First time staying at the Botel, first room was on the first floor opposite a noisy boat and smelled funny so asked to move which we did. Had a room on the third floor with great views over the river, still smelled funny though. Rooms are small and basic but the bed was comfortable and rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast... More

I would like to start this review with the good points, the botel does have more on selection for breakfast now as they now serve sausage, boiled eggs and beans aswel as the usual continental breakfast and the wifi has good connection throughout the boat but Unfortunately they are the only good points! The staff are very miserable and not... More

The room was small but clean. Breakfast was good. It's very convenient because you can take a free ferry to the Centraal Station. Staff was friendly. I had a wonderful experience there. It's perfect for a short stay. My room was at the first floor so I could see the swans and ducks around the botel which was really special.

Reasonable lodging for price. Rooms small but clean. Easily accessible , by ferry, from Amsterdam Centraal Station. Breakfast good. Overall OK for the cost. Botel staff was very nice. Bar tender, clerk, was very nice. Room cleanliness was good. I would recommend this facility for a short visit.

Stayed here in July for 3 nights. Basic room facilities, clean and a hot shower.. Exactly what was needed as didn't spend much time in room. Lovely, hot breakfast and as explained in the title great value for money. Would definitely stay if I were to visit Amsterdam in the future.

Stayed for 3D2N and it was value for money. Room was clean and enough space for couple. Just go by the free ferry ride near the Ams Centraal. You'll directly arrive at this botel. Our first experince for staying in a botel. It was unusual and good to try!

He explained everything clearly and advised us of the best way to get around. Room basic but all we needed. Clean and well kept. Breakfast in the morning again basic with not a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, 3 days. Lots of brochures and helpful leaflets, I.e for ferry crossing, shuttle buses, late nights etc. Room is VERY basic, but, if like us, you only use this as a base, it won't matter too much! (See pictures attached). The water seems slightly temperamental, either too hot and too fast, or too slow... More
