“Lunch in the restaurant was like jumping back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This restaurant has a view of the water, beautiful open space and excellent food. I came for lunch with friends and had a beer with nachos while we waited for everyone to arrive and then the avocato salad. Ambiance like this in Rotterdam can't be beat

In this day of cookie cutter hotel chains, it is indeed a treat to stay at this property. Yes there are some compromises mainly its more isolated location as it is not really near many restaurants or shops or public transportation. It is about a 10-15 minute walk instead to the underground and trams. However it is in a beautiful park location right on the waterway-enjoy the views. Patronize the Hotel's restaurant. It is a little expensive, but great. Soak in the ambiance of your uniquely decorated and historic room and appreciate that there are so few hotels in the world like this. All this and an outstanding, caring staff too.

Room Tip: Most all the rooms are individual in style and even the basic rooms are of a very good size.

I've stayed at Hotel New York several times already. It's an amazing hotel in a beautiful building with a rich history. The rooms are very nice with great beds and a nice styling. Service is perfect.

The restaurant has a very nice selection of seafood and a nice variation of local and international dishes. Make sure you tast the Beef croquettes!

Went here on the first, very wet, night in Rotterdam. The building is fascinating and it's history. All the previous review are bang on. The service was great and the restaurant area was much large than I expected. Very nice warm and friendly feel. I followed the reviews and had the tuna. Very well cooked and great taste.

Next time I would arrive earlier and have a drink at the bar that looked very inviting. Also, remember to book, we went on Monday night and it was full.

Hotel New York used to the place where many Dutch emigrants went on board on their way to the promised land after the Second World War, hence the name. The restaurant is situated in this Jugendstil stylish building on the lovely Wilhelmina pier.

Despite the fact that the restaurant was jam-packed as usual during the lunch hours, we got a table within 10 minutes. The vegetarian and the fish lunches comprising various sandwiches were quite tasty. Very likely the excellent view stimulated our taste buds.

The service was friendly and professional. We paid about 50 Euro for three persons including coffee and tea.

I only used the hotel cafe for a drink and amazing apple pie, but this is a lovely hotel and I'm not surprised at the positive reviews. The best thing is the setting, as it's fabulous and would be lovely on a warm sunny day. Visit for a drink after walking over the bridge if you aren't staying.

HNY is a hotel I use for business, but keep meaning to bring my wife, as it's a cool, relaxed hotel with very nice rooms, great bar/restaurant and absolutely full of character. I absolutely recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. A great Rotterdam institution.
