Rooms are small but very clean and tidy. Beds are very comfy and decent size. Rooms can get very warm at night if you have radiator on but soon cools down with window open and radiator on. The bathroom is very tiny and the shower looks awful, but it’s very hot and very powerful.

From what I recall, their is a free shuttle bus to Veer Buiksloterweg wharf, from where there is a frequent ferry service across to Amsterdam Central. Check-in at the Botel is open 24 hours a day.
