This unique, floating hotel is situated aboard a boat in the centre of Amsterdam on the river Ij, right next to the former NDSM shipyard and close to several attractions. There is a complimentary ferry connection to the Central Station, from where there are direct connections to Schiphol International Airport. The non-smoking hotel offers a bar with pool billiard and darts, there is a bike and car rental.
The rooms on the Botel Amsterdam are non-smoking and have a bathroom with a toilet, shower and hairdryer. Room amenities include complimentary WiFi, a notepad, a safe, satellite TV, and complimentary in-house films. You can also choose between a pier or a river-facing room.
Start your day off right with the complimentary English and Continental breakfast served up between 7 and 10:30 in the morning, overlooking the IJ river from the boat's glass-walled restaurant. Drinks are served up between 9 am and a quarter to one in the morning. In the bar, you'll find a pool table, a jukebox and a pinball machine - a great way to spend a quieter evening close to your hotel room after a long day exploring Amsterdam's sights. Internet access is available in the bar, too, ideal if you need to check up on the outside world. If the weather's nice, head up onto the boat's deck, where you can lounge on one of the beds and enjoy a drink.
The Botel Amsterdam is located on the NSDM-Pier, once a thriving hub of industry, this dockside area is now a buzzing hub of local arts, crafts and music. The ferry to Amsterdam Central Station takes around ten minutes and runs during the day. From there you can reach most of Amsterdam's top attractions, including the museums of Van Gogh and Rembrandt, the Anne Frank Museum, or take to the canals on a river tour.
Wrap up your day with a drink at the bar/lounge. Buffet breakfasts are available daily from 7:00 AM to 10:30 AM for a fee.
