Me and my partner went with another couple to celebrate my 21st birthday, we mainly choose the botel as we were looking for a budget hotel and liked the idea of staying on a boat.
yes, it is very basic but you get what you pay for. we spent £150 each for flights and hotel for a 3 day trip and i personally think that's pretty good value for money!
the staff were friendly and the rooms VERY basic (but also clean) but altogether we weren't there to spend too much time on the boat!
the top deck is nice in the sunshine, chilling on a hammock with the tiny mini fridge that they call a bar!
my only quibble was that it was sold for being close to the city centre but actually you have to get a ferry (free) across the river. this is fine if you are planning on coming back at around 12am but if you are looking at staying out later you have to try and catch the bus - we ended up jumping on the wrong one and the bus driver took pity on us and dropped us as close to the boat!
i'd recommend this for a group of friends looking at staying somewhere a little different and aren't too fussed about the rate of the room and are much more looking at enjoying all that Amsterdam has to offer ;)More
