“Good mid-week stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

I found this accommodation at short notice so was pleased with the pricing. The breakfast was ok and the hosts are great. They offered assistance on transport and were very kind to leave my room unlocked with my bag inside when I stayed out much too late on my first night in town.
There is no nearby tram, you have to walk about 10min to town but it is near the Orange Bike rental company.

Room Tip: Room 1 is right next to the shower and toilets so can be a bit loud.

My boyfriend had booked the Hotel Boat t add a different experience to our trip. I was rather hesitant as I wasn't sure how weep. I would do in a confined space however, it was ten times better than expected.

The Hotel Boat was clean and fresh with a nice breakfast every morning and a great location. Room sizes were also a lot bigger than expected.

Would certainly stay again! Highly recommend!

Staying on the Amsterdam Hotelboat was quite a unique experience. Located a short 10 minute walk from Central Station, it was very convenient for accessing the heart of Amsterdam. We did not arrive until 11:30 in the evening, and the owner was waiting to welcome us.

The room itself was tiny. The smallest one we had during our travels throughout Europe. Barely enough floor space to put our luggage, so keep that in mind if you are traveling with lots of bags. There was a small sink & mirror in the room, which was helpful. We did not use the shower facilities, but they looked clean and well maintained. Don't worry about the boat being on the water, as it did not move, and so no need to be concerned about seasickness.

Unfortunately we were exhausted after staying up late, so we missed the breakfast, which I'm sure was good. Prior reviews stated that smoking was allowed on the deck, but a new family friendly policy now forbids it, which was a slight letdown. Plenty of places to do that in Amsterdam though, thus it was not a deal breaker.

Given the location and price, it was a good value for Amsterdam.

We were looking forward to our stay because we had never slept on a hotelboat. We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The boat itself looked really neat, we were particularly impressed with the interior (the hardwood floors are notable). Our room was a bit cramped, but the bunkbeds had amusing charm, we were on a boat after all. The showers (shared) were very good and there was no shortage of hot water. The contential-style breakfast served was very tasty, especially the jam. Hertzen, one of the hosts, was super friendly and helpful, he was entertaining to talk to. All in all, our expectations of our stay on the boat were exceeded and we would recommend it to fellow travellers.

It is located in a wharf with very limited parking. If you have a vehicle, don't expect to be able to park nearby, or for cheap for that matter. Instead, park in one of the P+R lots. We parked at the Zeeburg one, which was considered the closest, and caught the tram back into the city cente (transit pass included in cost of parking).

I went to Amsterdam with my boyfriend during Easter weekend.
Most of affordable hotels were fully booked when we were looking for some accomodation.
We found this place, relatively cheap regarding the average price of the city.

Good situation, close to Central Station (really convenient when you arrive late).
Tenants are very nice and helpful.
Breakfast is included.
Towels and sheets too.
No wifi access but the national library is 5 minutes walk.
Bathrooms are always clean, it was the point we worried the most about but we were really satisfied about cleanliness.
Rooms are...basic.
It's OK for friend groups but it's not a really romantic and charming place for a couple.
But we had no other choice so we made it anyway.
