Positive Reviews

The Common Areas Are Very Clean

Most guests agree that the owners of this floating paddle boat hotel keep all of the common areas very clean. Some even referred to the boat as spotless and sparkling.

The Location is Fantastic

This hotel offers easy access to all of the attractions in and around Amsterdam. In fact, there is a ferry right next to the port where the boat docks. The ferry leaves twice per hour, and can take you to areas of Amsterdam where you can find dining and shopping options easily. Guests also love that bicycle rentals are available at the hotel for touring the area right by the port and enjoying the scenery

The Rooms Are Quite Cosy and Comfortable

Many guests have said that this hotel's rooms are quirky, cosy, and comfortable. Several of them also said that the beds themselves were soft and comfortable.

Negative Reviews

Meal Options Could be Expanded

Many guests were upset by the fact that only breakfast is served on the ship except when weddings, corporate events, or other large groups specifically request evening meals ahead of time. So, be prepared to go out to eat a lot.

There is a Lot of Noise in the Hotel

Since the hotel is located in the lower decks of a boat, any noise from the boat bumping into rocks or the dock is often amplified. Guests said that those noises and the noise of other passengers and staff members walking around kept them awake on several occasions.

The Boat Motion Can Make Sleep Difficult

If you are prone to seasickness or don't like the idea of constantly swaying back and forth, you won't be very comfortable at this hotel. Several guests said that the constant rocking of the boat made sleep difficult.
