The location was kind of interesting...and I enjoyed the daily free ferry ride across the water from Central Station..but this is false advertising to describe the Botel as a 3 star Hotel...and "luxury" is simply a joke and pretentious to say the least! It is more 2 star

Stayed her with a group of friends room was basic but clean and comfy. Was worried about it being cold but we could control our own heating so was nice and warm. Breakfast is nice and well worth the money. It's a about 30 mins outside the center but we enjoyed the ferry journey.

Average accommodation but good value for money. Close to centre as easy accessible by (free!) ferry. Rooms are small, basic however fit for purpose. Walls are paper thin, could hear our neighbors. Last ferry at 3am so could hear people in corridor.

Hi do your rooms have hairdryers
You can ask for one at the front desk. They ask for a deposit which is returned when you bring it back.

You could walk but it would be a very long way. The ferry is by far the best way across, free, reliable and quick, no reason not to use it.

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.

"The pier is 100m long and you can hear every single step outside, from inside your room"
"Choose price with breakfast included as limited options available off the Botel"
"Check out the letter rooms on the roof to see if any are available on offer."
"Try and book one of the five 'Loft-Letters'."
"Ask to stay on the ferry side, as otherwise you have horrible views and more noise from drunk guests returning to the boat"
