Quirky place for low budget travelers.
Overall this place was fine. The room was small and very simple, as expected, but there were even fewer amenities than I had imagined. For example, there wasn't even bar soap in the bathroom. Breakfast was adequate. Staff were a little gruff but okay overall. Getting to the hotel late at night was a major pain. I even emailed in advance for more specific information about taking the ferry and shuttle, but I was only provided the basic info already available on the website. After I took the ferry, I had no idea how to get to the shuttle, and ended up having to call the hotel. When the shuttle finally came, it was an unmarked white van and I had to approach the driver and ask if he was going to Amstel Botel. Other guests who got on the shuttle after me seemed equally confused. Transportation during the day was much easier. I would recommend this place, but only after encouraging travelers to arrive with low expectations.
