Okay hotel for the experience

Staying in a boat hotel is cool to do when you're in Amsterdam, however our rooms were very small and dirty. The shower was so small it was almost impossible to use.

Look for extra pillows and was told if they could find any they would drop them down. Never did. Some staff more interested in their phone than their guests.

Needs a refurbish and better breakfast

If the service staff particularly the room cleaners were not so dedicated I would only have given 1 star for the hotel. The cleaners are the best bit of a hotel that is basic and a bit run down

The Botel was a good place to say and will return a little more information from the staff regarding the local transport would help, apart from that it was a nice place to spend a weekend,

The Botel is an unusual place to stay; an old boat floating on the River Ij in Amsterdam's docklands. It's basic (80s style), but comfortable. It's a 15 minute ferry ride (free) from the back of Centraal Station, on the left; take the ferry on the furthest left to NDSM Werf. The Botel is the first stop. You can't miss it, the ferry stops close to it. The ferry ride is a pleasant way to start & end the day. My room had a nice view of the water, a funky graffiti-covered submarine in the foreground, & Centraal Station in the far distance.

Small rooms but very convenient to the city without the noise. Regular free ferry into the city.

Best birthday so far !

We stayed at Botel on a long weekend break to Amsterdam to celebrate my 60th birthday. We enjoyed everything about the trip and staying at Botel was perfect. It had everything we were looking for.. Great location , free parking, comfortable , clean rooms and really friendly , helpful staff . Have already been recommending it to friends and we wouldn't even consider booking anywhere else on future trips to Amsterdam +++++
