We stayed here for 4 nights recently, myself and 3 friends. The owners were extremely nice and I would go back for their service alone. The rooms are quite small, but if you plan on being out and about for most of the trip this isn't really an issue. One of my friends was sick when we arrived and they...

Botel was in a good location, quiet and comfortable. Although the rooms are not big, they are cosy and I had very good night sleep. Shower was basic but excellent. It provided a good base for exploring Amsterdam and breakfast included. It is a boat so if you expect hotel comforts book a hotel instead, but for a more unique...

Expected the rooms to be small as it was a boat, but not be able to pass each other was extreme! Only two hand size towels supplied, the bed linen had seen better days & was very faded & the toilet seat was was broken. The breakfast/lounge area doesn't get unlocked until 9am & is locked up again at 11pm,...

I stayed on Botel Zebra for two nights. The room was very comfortable and clean. The rooms are small on botels as is expected, but it was comfortable for two persons where they manage the space well very well. The location of the botel is good - about 10 minutes walk from the central station and close to the main...

We had a great stay at the Botel Zebra. Rooms are very tiny, but we had our own bathroom with a great shower. Beds are comfy, but again quite small. Breakfast was also pretty good with a variety of breads, cheese, jam, ham, etc. Only 10 min walk from central station. It is a great option if you are travelling...

Visited for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised by location, near everything. Rooms are small but that's a given being a barge, and the owners were friendly, included breakfast is ideal. Only downside being the wifi not working in rooms but no real issue - you are on holiday after all I'm sure facebook can wait until you are in...

Stayed here for 2 nights early June and I probably had the best sleep I've had in about 3 years. Rooms was basic but it's around £37 per night with tax and you get breakfast and you have your own toilet and shower!!! Toilet smells a bit but I suppose that something to do with the toilet being on a...

Yes, this is a budget stay but the issues I had would have been so, regardless of this. The staff are really kind and welcoming and the breakfast is fantastic. Location fine. But unfortunately (as I was travelling for work/study) the wifi (including my own) didn't work in my room and it was forbidden to use the communal ares (where...

The two of us stayed 2 nights in a narrow but perfectly fit room. The room had a sink for brushing teeth and washing face, a separate room with a toilet and a shower, Wifi and a bunk bed.

“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.”
