Things I didn't do in Amsterdam

A travel blog entry by endlesswanderer

What happens in Amsterdam stay in Amsterdam so here is a list of things that I didn't do:

I didn't stay in a boat hotel where my bathroom was half the size of my closet at home. This boat hotel was also not docked opposite Greenpeace's boat Rainbow Warrior.
We didn't go on a canal cruise around Amsterdam and have an Indonesian dinner.< …

Antons 1940 tour of Holland

A travel blog entry by crazydutchmumma

In 1940 Holland was bombed by the Germans. They bombed the four main transport routes in and out of Holland - by wrecking the bridges across the 4 main rivers. My dad rode his bicycle over 8 days and 380km as part of his Vacantie 1. One of two cycle holidays he took alone. (The second was about 1948 when he had three children under 5, and wanted to …

Day 103 - Travel to Amsterdam, Netherlands

A travel blog entry by shallan

This morning was lugging my luggage down to the bus at 6.30am (4.5 hours sleep is NOT enough!) to be greeted by Angus and Damian snoozing in the elevators, haha :) should have taken a pic but was still half asleep. 8 hours in the bus today, and there were a lot of hungover dejected faces so not the best trip ever. We stopped at for a cheese and …

New friends and funky smelling air

Phew...finally found a chance to update this.

So Amsterdam.. was actually quite a while ago. Hmm, lets see, I remember the first thing I noticed when walking to my hostel was the strong smell of weed EVERYWHERE. I had no idea how in the air it would be considering you're not meant to smoke in the streets but you could definitely get …

Here is another instalment direct from the 4th floor of the Amstel Botel floating in Amsterdam. Some have asked for more info about the botel, so I'll try to describe it a little more for you. It looks like a squarish ferry of 4 levels, with cabins on all 4 floors at the front (except 1st and 2nd floors, which start 2-3 cabins before floors 3 and 4 …

    Pretty ordinary hotel. Room smelled, was small, tiny bathroom so as you could hardly fit. Shower was tiny and had a shower curtain that kept sticking to you.

    Breakfast was also ordinary but had good croissants.

    The botel was a really fun place to stay somewhere different for a change. The rooms were clean though small as you might expect for a boat, the bathroom was especially tiny.
    Breakfast was good as was the transport from the ferry terminal.

    A experiência de se hospedar um navio

    Reviewed Mar 26, 2008
    by (19 reviews) Porto Alegre , Brazil Flag of Brazil

    O hotel é um navio adaptado. Portanto os quartos são antigos camarotes. O espaço era o necessário, sem desperdício. A localização é que não é muito central. Atrás da estação central, se cruza a avenida e se tem acesso a um ferry que cruza para o outro lado. O ferry é de 15 em 15 min e é de graça. O preço é bem legal. Foi uma experiência que repetiriam certamente.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Amstel Botel Amsterdam

    Great Value for Money!!

    from

    Very clean, cosy rooms with a friendly relaxed atmosphere and helpful staff.Excellent Continental breakfast.Suitable for all age groups, singles, couples, or friends.Situated close to all the main attractions and amenities.I could not find any fault with the Botel.Great Value for Money!!Recommended!!!

    Adequate

    from

    would have given 4 stars if the bathroom had been bigger than a mouses ear!!

    Apart from that very clean and good value.

    Great value for money

    from

    My husband and I have stayed at the Amstel Botel on three occasions, and have found it very clean, and comfortable. Breakfast very enjoyable too. In fact I have recommended the hotel to three of our friends, who also were of the same opinion as us.

    We would not hesitate to visit again.

    Comfortable and clean...good value

    from

    While the rooms and baths were small and the walls were thin...what do you expect on a boat...it was clean and friendly and the price was right. Security was also very much appreciated (you need your card/room key to enter at night).

    Breakfast wasn't much to speak of. What they try to charge you (8 euro/day) when you check in is the same if you just decide to show up, so why "commit" to eating there every day when there are so many other places to try. Definately go for a canal-side room. And enjoy your canibus outside, the Botel is NOT smoker friendly.

    My holiday there

    from

    i have spent a wonderful holiday in this hotel with my boyfriend and i have to say the view is so romantic...rooms are small, it's true, anyway i think the hotel is the best for a couple of young people who want to have fun in amsterdam and i'd like to thank you for everything. i suggest everybody coming to amsterdam your hotel for the cheap prices, for the position and for your politeness...... not for the food, but i'm italian and i always suffer because of the food when i'm abroad.

    i hope we'll meet again and...lucky you living in holland!!!!!!!!

    Not a bad place to stay

    from

    Lets face it, the Botel is not the Ritz of the floating hotel market, but it's not a bad place to stay.

    I stayed a few years back and made the most of a fairly quietish time.

    The walls are thin, but it's the same in most hotels in Amsterdam.

    The real downside is the smell from the river in the summer months! The post office deciding to beep their horns at the wee small hours and forgetting to draw your curtains when getting changed and giving the pleasure cruise going past an eyeful!

    It's central, but out of the way enough to enjoy some peace and quiet.

    The staff are helpful and you can come and go as you please and not have to put up with a skulking NL doorman at 3am in the morning!

    All in all not a bad place to stay.

    Not a bad Botel Hotel

    from

    The Amstel Botel is not a bad Botel Hotel for the price. True the rooms are small and the bathroom is small but for the price it was quite nice. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. The only problem was the first night the room was very cold then I discovered how to turn the heat on in the room. My fault! The first night I was there I left the do not disturb sign on my door and someone took it off and slid it under my door. Watch out for the porno channel on the TV if you don't like that sort of thing. CNN kept me informed. In the bar the beer was good, I asked the bartender if I could smoke my cuban cigar and he said yes "but no hashish." I told him I would never do that and he responded "well you never know" When I return to Amsterdam I will stay there again.

    I Will Nor Go Back

    from

    The rooms are hot, tiny, and stuffy. I finally bought a fan so I could some sleep. Fans are NOT available from front desk. The bathroom is very small.

    The front desk and manager were surly, unfriendly, and not helpful.

    When I departed they would not give me a receipt (which I needed for tax purposes). They cited "company policy."

    In 30 years I have NEVER had a hotel not give me a reciepit.

    Look around I think you can do better.

    I will NEVER stay there again.

    You get what you pay for!

    from

    I am surprised at one of the reviews.

    The Amstel Botel is near to Centraal Station & the City Centre. I have tried many 'Budget' hotels in Amsterdam over the years & feel that for 75 Euros a night it offers excellent value.

    YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

    I see that some sites offering 'cheap' deals charge more than if you were to book directly with the hotel.

    Give it a try.

    Not much fun onthe Botel

    from

    Stayed in the Amstel Botel for three nights which, to be honest, was quite enough.The rooms were very small and the bed was too big for the room, every time I got out of bed I knocked into the radiator!

    The walls are paper thin which meant you could hear everying going on in the next door room and vice verca!!! This means not much sleep!!!

    The rooms "landside" were also noisy due to the road and the Post office opposite and the view leaves a lot to be desired on this side.

    All in all very disappointing.
