Just spent two days on the ss Rotterdam, the old steamliner (1959) that connected Rotterdam with New York. Nowadays this beautiful old lady is a hotel in which you can relive the old romantic cruising days and yet you do not move an inch, cause the ship never leaves the quay. When you arrive at the ship you are welcomed... More

Stayed on board for few days while husband attended meeting also on board. Was a relaxing, peaceful experience. Ship interior is a work of art. Enjoyed hours sitting in restaurant sipping coffee, watching waterway view, while working on computer. Very friendly staff. Airline had lost my luggage for entire trip so was perfect place to be marooned.

I was planning a surprise city break to Rotterdam for my partner and when I found SS Rotterdam was now a floating hotel, I knew it was going to be a really different kind of hotel stay.

A quirky hotel stay and something different rather than staying in an ordinary hotel. Nice lay out, decent room and very well priced. We had a few drinks in the bar which was pleasant and it was quite a lively place. Would use this hotel again and hopefully in summer to use the pool

Two weeks before, we were in Rotterdam taking a cruise of the port. We saw the SS Rotterdam and thought we should stay there. Two weeks later we returned for a two night stay.

In a nice spot in the port of Rotterdam, you can find the S Rotterdam. The former cruise ship has been renovated (style seventies) and is now a hotel. Very good reception. Breakfast was good. Rooms are big for a former cruise ship. You can visit the port and the city by water taxi and that is fun. Many shops... More

Sleep-ing On a former cruiseship is a special thing. This large ship has many rooms and takes you back in history. Everything reminds you to The years travelling was something FOR The happy few. You want to have a Nice meal that Goes with The same history? Go to The hotel New York!

If you want to have tasty food, good service but mostly an unusual place to have dinner, than SS Rotterdam is highly recommended. The menu has good variety. We were 8 colleagues, ordered 6 different dishes, everybody was happy :-) Meat and chicken dishes are served plenty, but fish dishes were slightly under dosed.

Stayed for two nights for a business meeting (also on board). Cabin was reasonable size, clean and well appointed with usual amenities including a mini bar. Pleasantly surprised with number & siting of power outlets (sometimes a challenge even in major 4* + hotels). Fairly large en suite bathroom with walk in shower.
