Stayed here for 3 nights and wasn't the best hotel I had stayed in. When booking we had requested 2 single beds, after checking in (after a delayed flight) at 1 am we found there was a double bed. For two friends this wasn't ideal. There was no hairdryer- on the website it states that there is one in the...

I live on a boat so the Botel was a home from home for us during our stay. I loved it's location as it meant that we had to go on a ferry everyday to get in to the city of Amsterdam. And there were some great views of the river from that ferry and some amazing sunsets. The rooms...

Do your research before you go, don't expect 5 star and you wont be disappointed. Its a lovely hotel and great value for money. The commute on the ferries is fast and simple, just read the signs. The people are friendly and very helpful. Stayed there with my wife for a couple of nights and would recommend it to anyone....

Just spent 2 nights with my wife at the Amstel Botel ,after reading mixed reviews we were a bit apprehensive. The weather was atrocious snowing for two nights and very cold wind ,so a couple of nights on a old boat wasn't looking like a good choice ! How surprised were we ??? very..... the ferry from Central station is...

Very basic but enjoyed it and was nice to get free ferry across to Amsterdam city. Would be nice to have tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryer in room. Shower a bit smelly. Staff ok but not overly friendly. Girl who checked us in was nicest. She wore glasses. Staff in bar not so accomodating. Waited about 15 mins on a...

I loved the fact it was a boat and its something different. The shame was the reception team ( came in contact with 3 of them) seemed blunt and like they didn't want to be there. The room was a standard double, the sink you can wash your hands in while nearly smacking your face into it if you need...
