We did not stay at the hotel. However, we booked a Sunday brunch buffet in the Club room for my Grandmothers birthday. For 30 euros a head (without drinks), we were expecting quite a feast. The meal was as follows: Starter: Tomato and Sherry soup. Okay, but nothing spectacular. Second course: A choice of various breads (not made on board)... More

Very pleasant and clean accommodation. Great breakfast buffet. Shuttle and/or public transport bus service to nearby underground station and also water taxi service to downtown is available. Plenty parking space. Bathroom should have a shelf above the toilet to put a sponge bag etc on. No WiFi in the cabins just in public areas. The LAN cable provided in the... More

I booked the hotel as a birthday surprise for my friend who had worked as an engineer for the Holland America Line MS Rotterdam. Staying on board brought back plenty of memories of the good old days, for me it was the first time on a 'cruise ship' and i loved the experience of going to the authentic 50's bar... More

Was my dream to stay here as true Rotterdam born native in Rotterdam on the SS Rotterdam. Until one year before her owner went bankrupt, this liner was unanimously voted by the American cruise market guests as the best and most beautiful liner in the world. Now after a long and interesting story she came home and is a hotel... More

I had an inside cabin (no view) and it was reasonably priced and quite OK. It is definitely a ship's cabin and not a hotel room so for instance if you want the same storage space as a hotel room then you will be disappointed but I think most clients will be perfectly content. To get to the Rijnhaven Metro... More

Big ship, big hotel. Great theme and format is done well. Many old details of the ship bring you back to the old travelling days. Rooms tend to be a bit dusty, carpet not 100% clean. Service at check in/out very good. Restaurant little understaffed and big. Fine for breakfast, even though their coffee will win no prices. Breakfast buffet... More

Great atmosphere, excellent service. Great view of the city - as recommended by the NYT! Pity that one needs a car to get to the ship, public transport not an option. The hotel cabins are also an attraction.
