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...

When arriving at the airport just go to Amsterdam centraal for €5.20. Then come outside and there is a free ferry leaving every half an hour on the hour or half past a that takes 10/15 minutes. We arrived and it was very clean and welcoming. Rooms are cosy with soft beds. Could easily turn radiator up or down. They...

This is as good a base as anywhere for exploring the city. The boats in and out of the centre take about 15 minutes but aren't really a problem and completely free. I wouldn't like to need a taxi here if I missed the last boat though. The rooms are quite small but fairly cheap and there's everything you need...

As a couple we stayed here and loved it! The location is wonderful just 10 mins on the free ferry that drops you in Amsterdam central. Our room was at a great price that included buffet breakfast which was a small selection of hot and cold food, tea, coffee and juice which was an ample start to the day. The...
