It was a great experience. From the time I booked it from booking.com I was anxiously waiting to stay in this boat. I was not disappoint infact it was better than I expected. Wouter the gentleman who runs the hotel was very helpful and very nice person. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. As mentioned coffee and tea is unlimited throughout your stay along with cookies and fruits. The place is very close to the central station and all the other city centre places yet the area is so peaceful and beautiful. You have to accept the fact that the rooms are small since it is boat. But the beds are very comfortable and for me the space is more than enough. For me the WiFi was OK the bandwidth and data was enough as I was there not be in the Internet but to see the city and experience. Only disappointment was that I wanted to stay for about 4 days but the hotel was fully booked so I had only one day. I would definitely come back and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Thanks Wouter for being a great host and making my stay a brilliant one.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- What hotel boat Iris offers is the experience to wake under the waterlevel with maybe even some swans passing by your window. From our ship you can see central station which is only a 15 min walk along the dock. We are also 15 minutes from the red light district which has a lot of bars and other nightlife. Behind our ship there is also a stop for the canal-bus which can take you to the centre and the Rijksmuseum in a very relaxed way. Included in staying with us is free coffee, thee and choco all day and you can also freely take from our fruitbowl and cookie jar. In the morning we serve breakfast with several types of cheese, meats, muesli's bread type's and spreads, and also Milk, orange juice, bacon, boiled eggs and scrambled eggs. You are also welcome in our lounge where we serve beer, wine and softdrinks. In het public area's we also offer free wifi. We have to warn you about the fact that the data is limited to 50 mb's per item per day because we don't have a landline and have to rely on an expensive 4g network. If you need more you can buy this from our provider. The good thing about a small hotel like ours is that we can offer a much more personal service then the big hotel's in the centre and do it a much fairer price then them. ... more less
