Visit Katendrecht, an upcoming neighbourhood with a gorgeous foodmarket. Use the pedestrian bridge from Hotel New York, a few minutes walking from YOUR HOTEL.

One of highlights while visiting Rotterdam. Saw Hotel New York (former HQ) of Holland American Ship Line. The hotel is nearly 100 years old. The market is fantastic. It seemed to be modeled on Chelsea Market in NYC. Great brewerie. Great food. Free jazz and rock music. Fantastic view of Rotterdam

What was once a desolate port area, is now a bustling center of activity. Started by the stylish Hotel New York (the old HQ of the Holland America Line) about 15 years ago, there are now a number of amazingly impressive buildings, and more to come. A new pedestrian/bike bridge brings you to The Cape, once the largest brothel area... More

Take the boat and go for a drink at de Kop van Zuid at the end of a nice summer day. View is excellent.

The Kop van Zuid is the location of the New York Hotel, which used to be the Holland America Lines shipping office. It is a lovely old building which sits at the end of the Kop van Zuid and is a water taxi stop. For 3.60 euros pp you can travel by water taxi from the inntel hotels at Leuvehaven... More

Walk around Kop van Zuid and you will understand Rotterdam nowadays spirit. The buildings are wonderful, and the project for thhe future even better. At the end, the gem: the New York Hotel and Bar (inside and outside). In the area there also is a museum of fotography.

Wolking around the sky scrapers is great, feeling like little Manhatten. Have a nice lunch in Hotel New York and cross with your lover the bridge and "lock" your love!
