Welcome on board the Amstel Botel Hotel - a unique 3-star experience in every way! Situated now across the Het IJ, only 10 minutes from central Station by the free hotel ferry shuttle, the Amstel is a modern, superior floating hotel with 175 comfortable guestrooms, all of which are equipped with satellite TV, radio, safe, pay TV and en suite shower/WC facilities as standard. The new hotel`s location is the former NDSM-shipyard. This colourful and vital dockside area now houses workshops and artists` studios, hip cafes and restaurants, exhibitions and performances. Among others the media wharf houses MTV, Robodock, and the IJ-festival. The free ferry connection (and shuttle bus) makes this charming and intriguing city easy to explore and discover. Once in Central Station, many of Amsterdam`s sights and attractions can be easily reached on foot; Dam Square, Anne Frank`s House, the Flower Market, as well as the famous (or infamous!) Red Light District. Once the day`s sightseeing draws to an end, guests are invited to relax in the hotel bar, or enjoy a game or two of pool over a nice cold glass of beer - naturally!
