My first time to be in a boat hotel and i found it very exciting. The lady owner was very nice and friendly. The other lady assistant was very friendly too. It is a nice and affordable place to check in. We really enjoyed our stay. I recommend this boat hotel.

Stayed here a few days ago, had a nice time. Great location, good views. A bit too many rules, but all in all very nice. There's a nice breakfast selection and the rooms are good considering it's a boat! Would for sure recommend!

This is not a fancy hotel so if that is what your looking for than you need to raise your budget and look elsewhere, but, if you are looking for an affordable decent place to crash in a good location this is it. The bunks were perfectly comfortable and despite the small size of the rooms it is just what...

You need at least 2 full days to visit the main attractions of this City, a tour bus is the first thing to do & then work out which areas you want to go back to on foot. Watch out for the cycles though as they wiz along without much regard to the pedestrians. Beware if you are of limited...

“Rooms on port side are better as these are located away from the entrance to the boat.”

“Check the wifi in your room before you commit. I had both the free wifi on iPad and my own paid-for on my iPhone and neither got reception in my room. I think that some of the rooms fared better - maybe it is the place on the boat.”
