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.
David L. Solo travelers Australia, May 22, 2014
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!
Mattias I. Business travelers Sweden, April 29, 2014
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.

Great place to stay. Quiet but accessible.

Location, good price, interesting.
Great. Quiet location with sea view but instant access by ferry to central station And city centre. Nice atmosphere . Good breakfast and good priced rooms.

Fine for visitors on a budget

Situation, cost, boat!
Two of us stayed for one night on a short trip to the city. We just used it as somewhere to sleep, and it was absolutely fine for visitors on a budget. It was good fun taking the free ferry service runs from right beside the Botel to Centraal Station. I would use it again if the price was still right.
Dean D. Couples United Kingdom, November 6, 2011
reasonably priced and clean

nice buffet breakfast
nice breakfast.easy access to train station via free ferry rooms were clean and staff friendly would definitely return.
Travel tip: when arriving at amsterdam train station leave through back of the station for the ferry to the botel
Michael S. Solo travelers United Kingdom, October 17, 2011

close to city
i had a very nice stay at this hotel, the rooms are a little small, and a little outdated, but it is very clean the breakfast is good and the staff are helpful. it is very close to the city by free ferry. highly recommend it. will stay there again
Yi L. Families with young children China, October 8, 2010
It's not a hotel

easy to access from Central station
We took some to reach this Boat since there 4 ferry routes there and we took the wrong one first. It looks not bad from outside but disappointed when we walked into the triple room. It's not a hotel room, really like a hostel with limited facilites. I will not stay there any more.
