Got home yesterday after 3 nights at the botel. Rooms are very basic and small. You can hear EVERYTHING that's going on in the rooms next door. Breakfast was a disaster. First morning there was nowhere to sit and no hot food other than boiled eggs. After waiting 10 minutes for a plate and still no hot food we gave...

Have stayed at the botel 6 times in season and out of season and every time it's been a magical experience. We love Amsterdam and the botel is the best central place to stay. Rooms both on the land side and the sea side are comfortable clean and relaxing. I would recommend this highly rated botel to any one.

the botel is decent for what you pay for.. be prepared to travel to the main city as you have to get a ferry and taxi which is inconvenient. I was not expecting great service but at the bare minimum just politeness and helpfulness. Every staff member I encountered from manager to receptionist to bar staff were terribly rude left...

We stayed in the Amstel Botel in Amsterdam just one night but we enjoyed our experience. Warm welcome in the reception. They offer free shuttle bus from the botel to the Amsterdam Central Station which is very handy. The room was not big but clean and tidy and you can find everything you need in it. Very nice view from...

My last visit to Amsterdam was 33years ago and it was a Suprise to see how advanced the city had become. The trams, rail network was outstanding the airport was quick and efficient. We stayed at this hotel. On arrival it looked clean and the bed was very comfortable. We recently came back from a Caribbean cruise and the cabin...

This is a great place to stay, and I am a pensioner! I booked single occupancy of a twin room. Interesting view across the river to the industrial lights at night. Breakfast (included) is bacon, sausages, hard boiled eggs, yogurts, orange juice, cheese, ham, various types of bread and coffee. The room had a small shower with plenty of hot...

Having just returned from a long weekend in Amsterdam we stayed at the Amstel Botel, having read some of the reviews before going I was a bit concerned. But that was as far as it went, on arrival we were greeted by a lovely young lady, our room was small but you have to remember this is a boat. All...

Just returned from a 2 night stay in the Botel, had a lovely stay with good, simple rooms. Impressed with both shower heat and pressure, and also wide choice of TV channels (including the surprising xxx channel). Breakfast was fine, choice of continental, cereal, pastries and even cooked food, good enough range for everyone. Never went to the bar, because...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. It was pretty basic. The rooms were small and the bathroom was tiny... I guess this was a given for any accommodation on a boat? The walls are not soundproof either so be prepared to hear everything your neighbour does! you had to catch a ferry over to the...
