Overall an excellent hotel in a unique setting that was very popular with hotel guests and day visitors,either looking around the ship or just coming aboard for a drink in the Lido deck area. Amazing atmosphere on board the ship and everything very well maintained. There was an issue with poor air conditioning in our room which made it very... More

The room was clean, comfortable and appropriately furnished. The staff were always courteous and helpful. I looked forward to breakfast, which had a lot on offer.and was quite delectable. Given that the hotel is some distance from the city centre, I would like to see the shuttle run extended to Rotterdam Centraal. Coming back from NSJ early morning, it was... More

Kamer perfect, meal was very nice for me and my son, the staff was very friendly i can't say anything else about my stay. I'll remake it when it will possible, not far from Brussels and it changes completely your mind.

Very nice hotel but 1.8 Km far from the nearest Metro station (the hotel shuttle is not Always available). Taxi are very expensive in The Netherlands. The hotel personell is very kind and the restaurant offers you a good choice.

A group of us go to the North Sea Jazz Festival every year and since discovering the s.s. Rotterdam have never looked anywhere else. The staff are friendly, a good bar, rooms work etc. I'm not a fan of the buffet breakfast, but that apart all else works really well

Perfect hotel. Beautiful views and perfect located. Loved the water taxis! They make you feel like an honored guest. Too bad tours through the ship were only during business hours when we were exploring the city. Next time we will try the swimming pool.

The suite in front of the hotel is really Nice. We have stayed here several times. You van relax in the deck. View is really good. It is close to nice restaurants. I would not reccomend breakfastbuffet. It is expensive and not good.

Large room and plenty of atmosphere. Comfortable bed, although was two singles together. Great shower. Everything was spotlessly clean. Had dinner in the restaurant which was only a couple of levels up. Breakfast was good value with a large variety of food. Only down side was that we could not get the room cool enough for our liking, but to... More

We were keen to experience the restored Rotterdam. We quickly learned that individual hotel guests are very much second priority after events and corporate functions. Many rooms and public areas marked "Private by invitation only" - eg the Ocean Bar, one of the brochure attractions of the ship. Main ballroom, theatre, all out of bounds. Much of the ship is...

This accommodation is a bit out of the way. The Katendrecht district is an old part of the port that has been turned into a residential area. The ship sits at the very end, isolated from the rest of the city. It is accessible from Rotterdam Centraal by taking the Metro (D or E train) to the Rijnhaven station and... More
