The Amstel Botel is rather basic, however exciting if you wish to stay on a cruise ship. Cleanliness is average and the interior needs modernising. I would recommend anybody considering staying here should only stay for one night. Kettles and hairdryers must be purchased for a 10€ deposit, as this is not stated on the website. Sun deck is only open during the Summer, breakfast was OK, despite black yolks in the boiled eggs. We came as a group - meaning we were split between 3 rooms. The other room apparently had a hard mattress however in our room we had a perfectly good night's sleep. Free WiFi is available, however it may not work on most devices. No soap in the bathrooms, only a pump in the shower cubical which appeared to contain a combination of body wash, shampoo and soap, but too thin to be able to be used on hair and hands. Signal is limited on some channels on the television - however most are British channels or explicit. Room should be ready by 2PM and check out must be by 11AM on your departure day, however it can be extended if needed but you may be charged. Easy, unlimited frequent boat transfers to Amsterdam's Central Station and beyond; only a few minutes walk from the entrance.
