“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Just returned from 4 days at the Botel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the best part is the sundeck, where you can watch all the boats while enjoying a gin and tonic! My only (very minor) complaint is the tiny shower. There was plenty of choice for breakfast. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We had a minor medical emergency, necessitating a late night visit to the local hospital. The staff couldn't have been kinder or more helpful We will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the river side have an excellent view.

We recently stayed at the Botel for a long weekend away in Amsterdam. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were basic but very clean with a comfy bed and great views. Fully adequate for what we needed as a base. Close to the free ferry which takes you back to Centraal Station and then a short walk to Dam Square. We would definitely stay at the Botel again (and have started plans to already!!!)

on a recent short break in Amsterdam, we stayed at the Amstel Botel, clean rooms, close enough to the city centre (10 mins on the free ferry) (Ferry comes every half hour all day long, 15 min during peak times), so its not a big deal waiting for it.

What really impressed was the quality of the bed, normally not seen in a budget hotel.

Breakfast was fine, decent variety and filling. Orange juice was really good.

Twenty two of us stayed here - its a funky and cool place to stay just out side the city centre and with a free ferry every fifteen minutes to Centraal Station.

The rooms were clean and practical and with great views over the river.

All of us agreed that we would stay here again and plan to do so soon.

Stayed here as part of a topdeck trip with 40+ other people, the rooms are typical 90's style accommodation and could do with some colour besides Mint, bathrooms are tiny you have to sit sideways on the toilet otherwise u will miss. But it's quite cool staying out of the city and the ferry is free and departs every 15min into Central Station which is great. would stay here again. Beware the steps are very steep so if you come back late at night after a few beers take care!
