Ir is the very good hotel! Very good location, easy to get to the hotel, free ferry delivers you every 15 minutes. Amazing view, silence and polite personnel guarantee you the great stay in Amsterdam! But there are some disadvantages like short space of rooms but if you travel to see cities and views you don't need to choose the... More

Just back from a superb break in Amsterdam and decided to take one of the room letters , well worth the extra cost . Free boat service back and forward was a help , only one complaint , the last boat was 11.45 which is a bit early . Apart from that I will definitely return and I will certainly... More

We have stayed on the Amstel Botel on many trips to Amsterdam, but usually in the winter. We have always found the rooms to be basic but clean with a daily room service. Staff are helpful and friendly, although the bar staff seem easily distracted by their own social life. Breakfast has a good choice of warm and cold dishes.... More

This is one of the worst stays I have had in Europe . First of all the staff attitude is pathetic. The rooms are also hot . The hotel sells very well but I think it is only because of the fact that people get attracted towards stayin on a boat but trust me it's not pleasant to stay here... More

This hotel is on a boat so it's definitely something different, which is why I chose it. The staff is nice, speaks great English, the room is comfy, and there's free wifi. The location isn't bad either. The only complaint I would have is that the boat is on the side of Amsterdam where there is nothing to do. You... More

We stayed here on a recent trip to amsterdam and were pleasantly surprised at how awesome this Place is! Super clean and comfortable. Obviously the rooms are small but that's all part of boat life friends! Great location the free ferry runs every 15-30 mins depending on the time of day and takes you straight into the center. Staff are... More
