Hotel was great. The ferry which you take from Centraal station takes you almost right outside Botel which is ideal when you’ve been walking all day! The free ferry which crosses every 15-30 minutes (depending on time of day) is located to the left when leaving central station an

Stayed with son aged 18. The ferry ride to the Botel is free and regular. You see another side of Dam this way.
Check in was easy. As you would expect your room is a cabin. Basic but good value and it's different. Price included breakfast. Room was a little warm but we could ope

What's the best route from airport to Botel including approx costs ?
Really straightforward, the train station is in the airport, go to ticket machine or desk buy a one way ticket to central station costs €5, and there are screens everywhere showing departures platforms and times, also all the train and airport staff are English speaking and very helpful if you get stuck. Once you arrive at central station go out the back entrance and you will see ferry docks, the Botel is in sight over the water too, you then get on the free 10 min ferry service which takes you directly there, it’s the NDSM ferry port. Have a fab time!

There is a train straight from the airport to amsterdam central station i think its about €7 each and takes about 30 mins its so easy then when they come out of the staion there is a ferry that is free and travels back and forth from the boatel its so easy and tjere is so much help at the airport and station. Also ticket machines. Or if he js up todate he can use uber on his phone. Hope this helps
