Really clean and comfortable hotel. Really easy to get to from the city center via the free ferry. The breakfast was the perfect start to the day and the bar was one of the cheapest around. Would definitely stay here again!

We arrived in the pouring rain at the botel which had been moved since my last visit. I think our faces said it all but we decided it was paid for so we had better make the best of it. I am so glad we did... Beds aren't very comfortable but apart from that l think it has the friendliest... More

The hotel is quite outdated, rooms are small and walls are thin, service average. The breakfast was good, but the well-packed buffet area is a little cramped. But the fact that it's next to submarine and the Veronica ship, that you go into the city centre by a short and free boat ride and that is quite cheap makes up... More

The hotel is dated, the fact that you are on a boat is the only thing that makes you stay there. Rooms are small, toilets very small. But was close to the center - another nice experience: you drive to the center by boat.

Pleasant Stay. It is connected to the Amsterdam Central through Ferry. We were actually looking for the Loft Letter BOTEL at the top of the hotel. But these are booked through Management and on weekends it has to be booked for two nights. It is priced at around 250 Euros per night but i think it is worth the stay.... More

I read the reviews before I booked the botel, and almost everything was true. I decided to stay here just because it's not usual and haven't been in a botel before. The location is good and has a free ferry boat to the central station full of people and bicycles. The room should have AC/Ventilation, because I was lucky that... More

Wonderful for what you get for your money clean - good brikkie - bike hire - helpful staff - and a really good location. Getting the free and frequent ferry was a minor highlight of the trip. The room walls are not the thickest. This was a potential problem for us as we were next door to some young lads... More
