We stayed in the B room, it was amazing! Awesome half pipe, insane views from the each side, the bed was so comfy too. The boatel is so easy to get to, and the ferry to the centre is right outside - couldn’t be closer!

This is truly an experience. Great fun and unique. Not plush or posh, it was as you would expect. Breakfast was generous and good. Well worth the experience.

8/10 Very good

It was a fine experience; with the need for taking the ferry to get to downtown Amsterdam made for a nice nautical beginning and end of the day. The hotel is pleasant, but very short of amenities

Terrible That sewage smell And the horrible water clogging in the washroom where one can't get in for long hours.
