Botel is a ship turned into a hotel. This means your bathroom wont be big... but if your not after luxury and decent price, this is for you. Breakfast in mornings was great had fresh orange juice also.

Stayed here for 3nights with my partner and another couple. Rooms were clean and warm. We had a really nice view out onto the water. Bathrooms a little small but ok for what there needed for. We had to use the orange boat outside for breakfast as the breakfast room was being done up.. this was a bit of a...

price was decent, only downside was location as you had to catch a ferry across which was terrible as a group of us travelled there in November so weather was freeezzziiing. Although the trick to this is the last ferry across leaves at 12 midnight....so a lil credit on your phone helps and a free taxi picks you up instead!...

Botel, great accommodation, great breakfast, clean and very friendly. Free ferry to Amsterdam Central Station is great. Highly recommended for the price. Couple of bars around, the Pollox opposite do food and serve beer until late. Cocktail/sea food restaurant around the corner

Advice, as that what this site is about, on the ferry from the back of Amsterdam Centraal Station. The last one to NDSM from Pier 4 is at a reasonable 2.45am, a relaxing ten minutes journey that helps to clear your head.

rooms are small but functional. No hairdryer in room but for 10 euros returnable, you can get one from reception. Breakfast is good, European style and plentiful. If it doesn't come with the room price, then it's 12.50 euros per person per day. Ferry every half hour a short walk from the botel (50 meters) takes you right to the...

Just to be clear, I don't recommend this hotel to anyone that wants a decent sized bathroom, but if you don't mind it can be funny. The bed was a little hard and with a wood frame that was a little annoying. The bathroom was VERY tiny, when I showered the floor got wet. The breakfast was so so but...

This Botel is in a good location. You can catch a ferry free of charge which takes you to central station. It's very small, bunk beds and a tiny bathroom. Having a shower was an experience, it's quite difficult to get the temparature right using the mixer taps and when I finally did it spun around with the pressure. I...

The room facilities were very basic. The mattress was thin and only just adequate to sleep on. The shower was very small and at 5 feet 8 inches tall, I had to bend down in order to get my whole head underneath the shower to wash my hair. In addition, one of the towels was dirty when I got there...
