7.4.Good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    It was a good price for a very basic stay. Nothing fancy and fulfilling breakfast to begin your day exploring.

    Great location, but basic amenities

    Botel is great for its novelty and location. However, it is very basic and very small. It has become tradition to stay at least one night for nostalgic reasons, but there are other hotels in the area that are much nicer, cleaner and bigger. There is a reason they don’t have photos of the rooms on their website.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I liked the fact it was a boat, and the ferry was very close and also free. I didn’t like the fact we had to wait 45 minutes to check in because the Wifi went down. We wasn’t kept in the loop or told when It was back up, after a day of travelling it was the last thing we needed. The rooms were disgusting, cold, dark, old, smelly, dirty and hairs were about everywhere, we thought this was a one off room, but our other room was exactly the same.

  • 4.0.Fair

    This hotel was quiet run down, very tired, outdated, rooms not designed very well. I asked to upgrade but was told that all rooms were the exactly the same despite info on Expedia. Unable to sit on bed to watch tv as wall had inconvenient section sticking out . The photos looks much nicer than the reality. Rooms very small. Bathroom tiny and smelled of urine. No kettle but could rent for €20 but need to ask for cups etc and need to buy own tea, milk etc. When we went area around was under construction and no local shops . Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend. We left and moved to a different hotel.

    It's a boat! The novelty wears off, the rooms are tiny and are essentially hostel rooms.

    Would not stay again, had to leave half way through the stay as the room as not as described and too cold, dirty and noisy due to poor seals to the doors and windows.
