The main lounging space where breakfast's served is light, airy and has that distinct Scandi style.

Great location near public transport, clean rooms and facilities. The bed and bathrooms are a little small but if you are after a short stay in Amsterdam this is a good place to go. It was a bit of fun to say we stayed on a boat.

Wow, this fabulous Botel, added to the adventure of a great long weekend in Amsterdam. Reception, very welcoming - We arrived about 10.30am, knowing that check in time was not until 2pm, but asked if we could store our luggage until check in time.
