Amstel Botel: the Amsterdam Hotel on a Boat

What Do the Rooms Include?

Satellite TV and free wi-fi keep you connected to the world, but only if you want to be. Cribs or other infant bedding is available upon request, so don't shy away from bringing your little ones with you to the Amstel Botel.

What Amenities/Features Does the Amstel Botel Offer?

Get a voucher for one of Amstel Botel's famous pies when you check in at reception. They've got a reputation for having some of Amsterdam's best pies, so it's truly worthwhile to try one. A restaurant provides breakfast for guests in the morning, and in the evening grab a drink at the bar which is designed to promote guest relaxation.

What Are the Room Rates at the Amstel Botel?

Get a room at the Amstel Botel for as low as $36. Rates may go up to between $96 and $126 depending on room size and season.

What's There to Do Nearby?

Rent a bike and cycle through Amsterdam to all the most popular sites. See the Amsterdam Museum or the stunning flowers of the Keukenhof, or visit an Amsterdam diamond factory. Gassan Diamonds is near Amstel Botel and offers guided tours. 

What's the Bottom Line?

The reason it's called a botel and not a hotel is simple: the Amstel Botel is actually housed inside a boat. All 175 rooms are on a large luxury boat anchored at the NDSM pier. It's one of the most innovative and romantic of Amsterdam hotels, which will appeal to guests looking for something unique.

Expert Reviews
Kids may enjoy the experience of staying on a boat, but the property is more popular with value-minded couples and groups.
Where better to experience a city on the water than on a boat-hotel moored permanently to a dock on the IJ waterway northwest of Centraal Station?
Be sure to ask for a room with a view on the water, to avoid the uninspiring quay.
Time Out
Convenient for Centraal Station, the docklands and hops across to Noord, this a good bet if you're looking for good, clean accommodation with the odd frill, like free in-house movies.
