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!
