Location good, as long as you don't mind a 10 minute free ferry ride each way to the city centre (we didn't). Room walls a little thin, so if you have noisy neighbours you might suffer. Staff helpful & informative. Very limited facilities in the hotel vicinity - you really need to go into the centre. Overall good value and I would stay here again.

Mit der Erwartung vom beschriebenen Luxus und einem erwarteten Komfort eines 3Sterne Hotels sind wir maßlos enttäuscht worden. Wir sind mit einem Badezimmer wo Schimmel sich über die Fugen und den Seifenspender breit machten beglückt worden! Auch sonst ist das Botel ziemlich abgewohnt!, Kaputte Fernbedinung.... Für korpulentere Personen, ist das Badezimmer nicht empfehlenswert da man fast das Waschbecken unter den Arm nehmen muss um auf der Toilette platz zu nehmen. Das Hotel hat weder den angepriesenen Luxus noch entspricht es einem in unseren Breitengraden gewohnten 3 Sterne Standard. Sonst ist das Ambiente mal nett kennenzulernen. Mühsam ist es ständig auf die Fähre angewiesen zu sein, Vorteil diese ist wenigstens kostenlos. Beim nächsten Besuch wähle ich bestimmt eines der vielen, nahe der Centraal Station gelegenen Hotels.

The bathroom is too small. There is a curtain which was very dirty, between toilet and shower. The floor was dirty. There was a chair in the room but I never use it because it was too stained. Even there is no hairdreyer in the room. Breakfast was poor. Everday they served the same breakfast. The man, black slim one, at the breakfast hall was very rude. I was going to have breakfast and the man came from the back side and knocked my sholder and asked for money. Then I did realize that my reservation was not include breakfast. But he could be polite and explaine it or without asking he can add to my bill. I don't recommend this hotel. It is out side of city.

It was an interesting experience staying on the water. Our room was a little close to the main stairway and bar but the gentle motion of the boat got us to sleep while people were still having a good time. All in all it was a good stay. The room was clean, the water was hot at all times, the bar very reasonably priced and in how many places can you open the curtains in the morning to the sight of an old Russian submarine?

A pleasant free 10 minute ferry trip from the central stqtion. Small but comfortable rooms. Great for an Amsterdam holiday

The Botel is a 20 minute ferry ride from Amsterdam Central. The ferries run every half-hour from 7:00AM to Midnight, and are free. The rooms (cabins) are small as is the en suite, but adequate. I would stay there again.

Hotel ok, rather thin walls and rooms get very stuffy. Novelty factor good, the ferry over is very regular and good service but this gets to be a bit of a bind to get to and from Amsterdam.

I liked this hotel, purely for its uniqueness. The location was good, it was lovely and quiet and fantastic views from both sides of the boat (I had a beautiful sunset view from my room on the top floor). The only downside was travelling to the centre, which I think was just me being lazy. Transportation to the hotel is fantastic. There are free boat/ferries that take you to a dock, next to the boat which take around 10 mins to get to each side, then after midnight the Botel offers a free bus shuttle from another dock (as boats stop to the main one). The boat did rock slightly when other boats passed, but this all added to the fun of staying on a Botel! We all found ourselves rocking whilst out during the day! The room was small (especially the bathrrom) however was clean and beds were comfy. I would return again, it was an experience!

Although not exactly centrally located, it is only a short free ferry ride direct from Centraal station, which makes it very easy to find. However aside from the fantastic service the rooms themselves were terrible. Uncomfortable beds, tiny t.v with a remote that was duct taped together. a shower that leaked and sprayed all over the rest of the bathroom, had no water pressure. a non existent a/c, our room as so hot and humid! you would almost be better off in a hostel. A least breakfast was included, however for the price I would have liked a coffee/tea service in the room. I will not stay again. However the staff were very pleasant and helpful and iI was glad not to have any "suprise fees" when I arrived.

Have stayed in this hotel many time, but this is not a luxorious hotel as you now state , I found it to be dated, the location has changed and is now positioned away from the city itself, ferry OK every 1/2 hour but for the money have stayed in better places, wont be going back, upon check in no booking could be found in our name, eventually everythink OK

You need to be aware that there is a further charge for city taxes when staying at the Botel which is not included in the quoted price.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Amstel, we stayed for 10 days and found that the breakfast became very boring after a couple of days, more variety would definitly help

a good clean place to stay . its on the other side of the bay the ferry is free and leaves every 30mins. the ferry is only 100m from the main train station. it can be a bit of a hassle but once you get used to its very enjoyable. ps if you suffer from motion sickness you may need to reconsider. i would stay there again 3.5 out of 5. you leave with a good feeling.

The Botel is in a good location with a free ferry over to the train station which is in the central part of the city. Breakfast (included) is good, but I think they should offer fruit with it. The rooms are small, but so are most European hotel rooms. The biggest problem I had while staying there was the noise from the gangplank which was right next to my window. I think the other side might be quieter. All in all, the stay was a nice one.

the botel has moved its location and is now situated in a shipping yard, its got nothing around it and you must catch a ferry to it, these run every 30 minutes but it is just an inconvenience, the rooms were better than i expected and they were clean. i would go back there simply because the other hotels in amsterdam centre are meant to be worse and we did have a double bed ( not two singles pushed together) if it wasn't for the location it would be a good but not luxury by any means hotel.

The hotel has been moved to the other side of the bay and we had to take ferry there. Not a problem, they come quite often. The hotel is basic and has very thin walls. It gets noisy at night and early in the morning, especially if your room is below the restaurant! Breakfast was very good - great selection!

Nice hotel, the location is not bad very close to the central station, but you need to take a ferry boat to the hotel, the ferries are available all the time and free of charge. The breakfast is pretty good, the staff are very helpful, rooms have very small bathroom. Overall the hotel is good for the price.

you real feel at home and you wont even notice the distance & location due to the efficient shuttle ferry and bus in the early hours.if we are to go back to amsterdam we know botel is the place...

Had a good stay at the BOTEL, but the new location is a serious pain. You are no longer beside Centraal Station, and instead have to take a ferry to the new location of the BOTEL. This is a real shame. Next time I will go for something more central.
