Amstel Botel! The floating Hotel in Amsterdam. Want to book into a luxurious but inexpensive hotel in Amsterdam? With the Amstel Botel you can! This floating hotel is located in the right next to the former NDSM shipyard. You will therefore be right in the artistic and cultural hotspot of Amsterdam. And you will be spending the night on the River IJ. You can't get more 'Amsterdam' than that. A ferry takes you to the city centre for free in just 12 minutes. At night a shuttle bus is provided free of charge to take you to the 24-ferry service towards central station and back to the hotel. Public parking at the Amstel Botel is available at a charge. City tax = 5% of the room rate, paid at the hotel, the rate is per room per night.

Good value stay

We were 3 couples staying in Amsterdam for 3 nights and looking for good value accommodation. We were not disappointed with our stay on Botel. The rooms, although compact were exceptionally clean, with clean towels every day and very comfortable beds. The breakfast was excellent with a very good selection of cheese, meats plus hot items. Fruit juice good and coffee machine was good. Bar area was comfortable and closed at reasonable time (12.45am). Vending machines sell snacks and cans of soft drinks - very handy. As for the ferry trip to Central Station - what a pleasant experience every day! A free ferry running frequently day and night was never a problem. All in all we all thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay on Botel and would not hesitate to stay again or recommend to anyone.

Amstel Botel

The Amstel Botel in Amsterdam has been moved. The ferry service to get there is very efficient but you need to adjust for the extra time to get there. The Botel is moderately priced and the accommodations are adequate for the price. Breakfast is not included but available for 10 Euro per person.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Eat breakfast outside of the Botel as what is offered is not worth the 10 Euro price.

The Amstel Botel

Orbitz did not indicate on their website that breakfast was extra (10 Euros). The safety deposit box and hair dryer were also not included. We stayed 2 nights to tour Amsterdam. It was not a good deal because of the extras we had to pay. This is the worst 2-star room we ever stayed in all our travels. If I had known the extras were not included, we would have paid more for a better room at this hotel.

Worth finding this Deal.

Great place for the price. The Red Light District is crazy like mardi grass but great during the day. The ride is short to the city and forget the breakfast add on. Bathrooms are not for double wides. I would stay again. Twin beds only. It was over booked because it is so popular. It is hard to find an inexpensive hotel that is not in the Red Light District. Try to find something better and let me know.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There are two bars/restaurants right next to the boat. Remember to eat by 10:00pm. Most restaurants close early. Rent a Bicycle and ride around the parks. The non tourist areas are cool to find good food, where the locals eat and drink.

Nahh!!!

Tiny does not begin to describe the room. No A/C, a tiny little tv with very bad reception (not that we went there to watch tv...)When I read about the hotel it said it included the breakfast. NOT!!!! 10 Euros per person!!The taxi drive to the airport was 60 Euros from there. You could actually go across on the free ferry and take the train but with all the luggage...Itś up to the passenger. I, personally, will not stay there ever again, especially when breakfast was supposed to be included.
