    Am glad that I chose the Botel, it is a 12minute ferry ride (free) to Central Station but so quiet so sleep is not a problem. Breakfast was also good with cooked bacon, sausage and beans or cold continental. Yes full marks. Mick from England

    Wish Every city had a Botel Hotel Concept”

    Great Idea really quirky. Very competitive very clean accommodation in the Centre of Amsterdam Great FREE ferry to and from Botel to Amsterdam Central Station ( Travel to anywhere in Netherlands/Europe) in addition ideally situated to catch a tram, bus or taxi to get anywhere in Amsterdam. All the staff are informative & friendly from my experience. I would recommend this to any/everyone Chris from Merthyr Tydfil

    Overall good value. Had a pleasant stay”

    Pros: Good location, Free breakfast, Comfy bed, Near ferry terminal, Hot water, Tv, Bar and slot machines near reception. You can go atop the ship on the deck and enjoy the views. Staff were helpful. Cons: Small shower but it was adequate for me, No gym, No room service but can order for food delivery, Door keycard had to be reprogrammed twice coz it clashed with my mobile phone.

    Quirky stay”

    Clean and friendly, bar drinks reasonably priced, quite location but you can hear the hustle bustle in the morning, breakfast get there early as they appear to find it difficult to keep up with topping the food up, easy transfer from main train station just make your way to the ferry terminal outside and take the ferry on the far left, they run about every 15 minutes and it’s free, if you are not bothered about all the luxuries of a big hotel and fancy something different then this is a place to stay, take a travel kettle also.

    After reading some comments, I was ready for the worst stay, but Amstel Botel surprised me. The room was clean, the food was fresh and the personnel was helpful, I got everything I needed and it didn't take a lot of time. The free of charge ferry has a convenient schedule. If you go to Amsterdam not for staying in the hotel during the whole day, I would recommend it.

    Not the Botel I thought.”

    I use to stay in the Botel close to the station. When I booked this Botel I thought it was the same place. It was a pleasant boat ride to the area of this Botel and the service and facilities were the same as the older Botel I use to stay in. Just a little bit out the way for my trip, but easily managed to get there and into the city with a little boat ride and a walk.

    Brilliant budget accommodation ”

    The Botel exceeded our expectations, as we were very realistic when booking budget accommodation on a disused ferry! It was clean, comfortable and everything you need to sleep and have a bit of breakfast. That’s just it in a nutshell. You can eat dinner at the Pollux which right opposite, over the walkway and is fab. You need to get the free ferry to the heart of Amsterdam which runs every half hour and takes 10-15 minutes, we found this no bother, it literally takes you from the back of the Botel and drops you at central station, from there you can walk it, train it, tram it, whatever. We managed to see everywhere on foot and enjoyed every moment. I would stay at the Botel again.

    Botel Review”

    Good location, short free ferry ride from rear of Central station. Basic hotel but good price and very clean and friendly. Good shower and beds. All you need for a few days in Amsterdam. Excellent public transport and bike services. No need to drive anywhere in Dam. Good continental breakfast and nice bar that serves lovely pizza’s. Nice to watch the different boats going up and down the canal. Would definatley go back to the Botel.

    Staff lovely, and all areas on boat nice. However, walkway to boat (pier) has metal bolts sticking out of concrete, so safer to walk on road area as no cars use it much, also if going when dark a torch is handy as it is quite dark

    Nice views over the harbour. Smallish room as expected of a cabin with very small shower room. Comfortable bed. No kettle but that wasn't a problem for me. Friendly staff. Nice to have fresh crisp apples on offer at reception for free. Free ferry over from the central train station to the Botel.

    Quite a strange place..”

    My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and will never return back here again. The staff are incredibly rude and put in zero effort to say hello or to even welcome us and every time we ask a question we receive a big *sigh*. There was also no bottled water in the room which is pretty stingy. My suggestion - book elsewhere.

    Quiet and comfortable”

    The Botel offers a slightly different 'hotel' experience. If coming from Central Station it is a short free ferry ride from the centre, takes about 10 minutes to get from central dock to the north dock, where the Hotel is a 5 minute walk from. The room is clean, and comfortable. It is quiet, being located outside the city. Regular check in is 3 pm, but I was able to check in earlier as a room was ready and available. Check out is 11 am. Bathroom is a little tight for space, but then again this is a cabin in a boat. It is functional and clean. I had a great 'catch up' sleep here which I really needed to re-charge the batteries. I think the Botel offers good value for money, when compared to staying in Amsterdam Central.
