Hi there,

Lodging: in Rotterdam e.g. Hotel New York which is AT the jetty (walking distance to boat) and is the former. Or Golden Tulip Inntel or Hilton, both only a short taxi or even metro/tram ride away from the jetty.

Travel: see www.ns.nl, Schiphol as departing station and 'Rotterdam Centraal' for destination; frequent trains. Inntel is by metro and Hilton is a short taxi ride from the station (or 10 mins walk which is not nice with much luggage).

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Inntel Rotterdam would be the best I suppose (not Golden Tulip anymore).

The cruiseterminal is just across the Erasmusbridge.

Good alternatives: Hotel New York or more exclusive Pincoff Suites, both very close to the cruiseterminal.

Budget hotels also available at Tulip Inn or Maritime Hotel, both waterfront and on the opposite (the river) of the cruisterminal.

If you want to get into the cruise mood you really should book a room on SS Rotterdam, the former flagship of Holland America Line and use the watertaxi to get to the cruisetermina in only about 5 minutes

All above accommodations are most convenient for you to travel to the cruiseterminal.

Okay. Just in case you plan public transport also inside Rotterdam:

* Central Station to Inntel: metro, take 3rd station called Leuvehaven. It's very close to the station exit.

* Inntel to Jetty: same metro, take only 1 station across the river to Wilhelminaplein station. (Most weird/funny station in Netherlands, you'll see why). From the exit about 10 mins walk to the jetty.

All the best,
