8.5 Very good
Pros:It was a boat that was a hotel!
Cons:The bar options. But it was understandable that they were limited due to the fact that it was a boat.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Breakfast was really good.
5.7 Fair
Pros:The ferry will drop you off very near Amstel Botel, so if you walked all around the city, it will not be tiring to get to your hotel.
Cons:The room was very basic and smelled like urine. It was not a pleasant stay at all. The front desk is not much help either.
6.8 Okay
Pros:The boat is in a really cool wharf area. There's some really cool bars and restaurant just outisde. If you don't plan to stay inside, the boat is ideal for travelers on a budget.
Cons:Pretty straight forward, you're staying on an old cruise boat. Nothing fancy but a room and a shower.
7.6 Good
Pros:Great location. Quiet area with easy access to the center of the city. I would definitely stay here again. Very cool Hotel-Boat...Botel :)
Cons:The last ferry from Central Station leaves at 23:45 and the first one leaves to Central Station at 07:00. But there was a free shuttle 5-7 min to/from the 24 hour shuttle. Had 2 single beds that could not be moved together.
7.3 Good
Pros:Shuttle service from the ferry after midnight.
Cons:The internet was so slow, I couldn't post videos (they always timed out) and single pictures could take 15-30 minutes.

FAQs when booking at Botel

  • For a room that is both affordable yet spacious, select one of the Double or Twin Rooms. Complete with private bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, electric kettles, and small terraces, these rooms are sure to have all of the amenities that you will need during your stay. If you will be staying at the Botel with a group, consider opting for a Triple Room instead, as they can sleep up to three people, have a comfortable working space, and contain either a wardrobe or closet.

  • To stay active during your time at the Botel, there are several recreational activities that you can participate in. As Amsterdam is known for being a very cyclist-friendly city, the hotel offers free bike rentals for guests in order to help them navigate the region. There is also a billiards table, which is a convenient way to unwind and socialize with some friends.

  • If you would like to head to the northern side of the city, take a ferry from the Amsterdam, NDSM dock, which is just a 3m walk from the Botel. The bus is also a convenient way to travel through the region, and the Amsterdam, Klaprozenweg stop can be reached in a 7m walk and services lines 391 and 394. If you need to take a different line, the Amsterdam, Pomonastraat bus stop is a 10m walk from the hotel, and it services lines 35, 36, and 293. One-way bus tickets cost 3,20 EUR each (approximately 3.6 USD), and an unlimited day pass starts at 8 EUR (approximately 9 USD).

  • To enjoy some of the city’s greenspace, go to Vondelpark, a large urban park that contains an open-air theater and is a 15m drive from the Botel. If you are interested in the region’s history, the Rijksmuseum is less than a 20m drive away, and features a selection of exhibits related to Amsterdam’s arts and culture. For a fun attraction that the entire family will enjoy, go to Madame Tussauds Amsterdam, a wax museum that contains replicas of celebrities and is only a 15m drive away.

  • If you are flying into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, there are several ways for you to then travel to the Botel. For those that will have heavy suitcases, it is best to drive or grab a taxi. The trip generally lasts between 20 to 25m, and a regular ridesharing service, such as Uber, will cost you around 32 to 43 EUR (approximately 36 to 48 USD). To rent your own car, simply head to the Arrivals terminal of the airport, and you will find offices for companies like Sixt, Enterprise, and Europcar. To save money, consider using public transportation, such as the local bus and metro. If you take the Intercity Direct bus, the trip will only be 50 to 55m. (Prices checked 20/06/19).
