The stay was indeed among the memorable one. It was unique. Stayed for 1 night and the price was very reasonable. Nice room with WiFi and breakfast. Location wise, easy to navigate from Amsterdam main station. Host was friendly and can be reached easily via email. Recommended for those who are looking for a unique boat hostel experience.

We stayed for 3 nights in mid may, it was our 2nd time in amsterdam and this Hotelboat is absolutely perfect. The rooms are quite small but perfectly adequate and amazingly clean. It's probably the cleanest room I've ever paid for in my life. The whole boat was spotless. It's a 15min walk from the central station and there is...

On this trip to Amsterdam I wanted to stay somewhere a bit more of unique And I came across the Amsterdam hotel boat. The prices were very reasonable and the location was convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful and breakfast was included. The only thing that was a bit uncomfortable was the bed. Granted it's on a boat and...

Stayed here for a couple of nights on a short trip to the city. We initially booked just for the price which was about EUR40 less than the cheapest hotel we could find. Rooms are tiny which is probably the only criticism of the place. In all honesty this didn't bother us much as we weren't really in there much....

Me and my partner stayed for 3 nights and loved it! Very close to the Central Station and right next door to the Nemo Science Museum. Make sure you plan your route/ have the address handy as we got a little confused as to which boat to hop on to :) They ask that you pay in cash which is...

The boat is very cosy. With a lounge/common room area where a free continental breakfast is served in the morning. The rooms are slightly on the small side but it is expected for a boat of that size - plus it keeps the room nice and warm in the colder months. The owners are very friendly and are willing to...

We stay for three nights. We wa greeted very warmly by the owners. They gave us a map of Amsterdam showing all the hotpots.
