I stayed on Botel Zebra for two nights. The room was very comfortable and clean. The rooms are small on botels as is expected, but it was comfortable for two persons where they manage the space well very well. The location of the botel is good - about 10 minutes walk from the central station and close to the main...

We had a great stay at the Botel Zebra. Rooms are very tiny, but we had our own bathroom with a great shower. Beds are comfy, but again quite small. Breakfast was also pretty good with a variety of breads, cheese, jam, ham, etc. Only 10 min walk from central station. It is a great option if you are travelling...

Visited for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised by location, near everything. Rooms are small but that's a given being a barge, and the owners were friendly, included breakfast is ideal. Only downside being the wifi not working in rooms but no real issue - you are on holiday after all I'm sure facebook can wait until you are in...

Stayed here for 2 nights early June and I probably had the best sleep I've had in about 3 years. Rooms was basic but it's around £37 per night with tax and you get breakfast and you have your own toilet and shower!!! Toilet smells a bit but I suppose that something to do with the toilet being on a...

Yes, this is a budget stay but the issues I had would have been so, regardless of this. The staff are really kind and welcoming and the breakfast is fantastic. Location fine. But unfortunately (as I was travelling for work/study) the wifi (including my own) didn't work in my room and it was forbidden to use the communal ares (where...

The two of us stayed 2 nights in a narrow but perfectly fit room. The room had a sink for brushing teeth and washing face, a separate room with a toilet and a shower, Wifi and a bunk bed. The breakfast was absolutely fine with different kinds of bread and rolls, different kinds of cheese, cold cuts cucumber, tomato, jam,...

First time in a botel where I really recommend it. The owner is very nice and helpful, good breakfast , cleaned and also wifi . Which is really good for what you pay in central Amsterdam. Walking distance to central station.

I have stated in this Bostel because never heard about the concept before of staying in a boat. Oosterdok is a quite place and many other similar Bostels around. rooms were very small but breakfast and shower were very good. We rented a bike 300mts from the Bostel and we could move everywhere even though we were not staying very...

I have to say that I booked to stay in this botel because one month in advance my trip to Amsterdam it was one of the few places that wasn't sold out yet. And now I understand why. I am used to travel a lot, so I am not the picky costumer. But since we paid more than 40€ per...

“Wifi is only any good in the lounge (upper deck) or the first cabins at the bottom of the stairs.”

“Rooms on port side are better as these are located away from the entrance to the boat.”
 of 5 bubbles andrewlipinskil, 26 Sep 2015 | Read review
“Check the wifi in your room before you commit. I had both the free wifi on iPad and my own paid-for on my iPhone and neither got reception in my room. I think that some of the rooms fared better - maybe it is the place on the boat.”

“Ask for the separate suite-it has its own key and makes the place feel like your own.”

“Take a room at the outside, not at the quay. Rooms at the quay are darker, as tiny windows are below the quay surface.”
