About Amstel Botel


This hotel is a cruise ship moored at the media wharf in the former NDSM shipyard, connected to the central railway station by ferry. The Amstel Botel in Amsterdam is docked at NDSM Pier 3, a lively area with artists’ studios, funky bars, and vibrant cafés and restaurants. A free shuttle bus operates during the night when the ferry is not running. The hotel offers very clean, airy cabins with satellite TV and free in-house movies, wireless Internet access, and canal or land views. The Pollux Café serves excellent Dutch and international food, and the bar stays open until 1am.

Not very friendly place to you and your pocket
Very small space and dangerous placement of bunk bed. Really have to keep watch of your head. Bathroom very tiny, really hard to move inside. Reception staf not very welcome, except their restaurant staf who are really helpfull and kind. Overall, i don't want to spend another time in this hotel if i have another chance to go back

Excellent value.
Room size was More than sufficient, breakfast is more than varied, we stayed in a double room on the 2nd floor, the walls are a bit thin, so you may have busy neighbors, yet the staff were exceedingly friendly, the wifi was excellent, and the ferry ride consistent ,)

good value
comfort, staff, value for money
Great value for money. Staff are brilliant, we requested to be moved to a double room as we mistakenly didn't request one while booking online, they done this without a problem, stayed an extra night for a great rate. Free ferry across from central station to botel which only takes a few mins and they come every 20 mins or so... shuttle bus to the botel after a certain time when the ferry stops, I thought this would be an inconvenience but it wasn't at all.

Unique hotel
Condition, cleanliness, helpful staff
Nice unique hotel, quite a distance from main train station. A bit difficult if u bring lots of luggage from train station since u need to walk a distance. But basically all is great.

Fun location
Unique hotel, frequent free ferry to main station, cheap drinks!
Great experience, would do it again. Easy to get around, small room but that was expected being a boat in its previous life!

Cheap, very basic and fast access to Down Town.
Cheap, cool view and fast access to Down Town
This is a very basic hotel which I assume attracts mostly back-packers. I stayed only cause it was very near my work location. The hotel is on the other side of the river compare to city center, but it's just a few meters from the ferry that takes you fast and easy to down town. Just in the vicinity of the hotel, (which actually is an old ferry it-self), you have a nice restaurant/bar and also another ship with a really cosy restaurant/bar onboard. There's also some kind of maritime museum in the area, so right outside the room, (cabin), window is an old graffiti filled submarine. So a good location if you don't need to live in the very central. Rooms are extremely basic and resturant and bar is what you can expect at a two star hotel.
