On this trip to Amsterdam I wanted to stay somewhere a bit more of unique And I came across the Amsterdam hotel boat. The prices were very reasonable and the location was convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful and breakfast was included. The only thing that was a bit uncomfortable was the bed. Granted it's on a boat and...

Stayed here for a couple of nights on a short trip to the city. We initially booked just for the price which was about EUR40 less than the cheapest hotel we could find. Rooms are tiny which is probably the only criticism of the place. In all honesty this didn't bother us much as we weren't really in there much....

Me and my partner stayed for 3 nights and loved it! Very close to the Central Station and right next door to the Nemo Science Museum. Make sure you plan your route/ have the address handy as we got a little confused as to which boat to hop on to :) They ask that you pay in cash which is...

The boat is very cosy. With a lounge/common room area where a free continental breakfast is served in the morning. The rooms are slightly on the small side but it is expected for a boat of that size - plus it keeps the room nice and warm in the colder months. The owners are very friendly and are willing to...

We stay for three nights. We wa greeted very warmly by the owners. They gave us a map of Amsterdam showing all the hotpots.

Location is good, a short walk to the centre and good access to trams at Centraal Station. The room was a little small but it was very clean same goes for the communal facilities, also very clean. The deck is a lovely place to sit and have a beer in the sun. Service was fantastic. All in all a great...

Depending on what you want the do the location is pretty good, it's a 5-10 minute walk from the train station so it's easy to get to, and its only a short walk from the centre. But if you want to be near 9 streets or Anne Franks it's a bit of a walk - then again amsterdam is a...

All were excellent in my opinion! If you're looking for a 3 star hotel or above, this isn't it, but for the reasons mentioned in the title, it is tremendous value, and a great option in Amsterdam. It is located a 5 min walk from Centraal Station, and no more than 10 mins from some of the main areas like...
