We recently stayed on board for two nights, as part of a coach trip around Holland. On the first night we were told that there was a fixed menu. The food was extremly poor, when we complained we were told that there was no alternative. As the ship is not close to any outside restaurants, we went for dinner, once... More

This Holiday Inn is much as many others in the chain - but it is clearly one of the better ones. The location is good for the city and surrounding area - parking is available but limited. I cannot fault our room. The breakfast was good - much as other Holiday Inns (far better than Express!) and staff provided excellent... More

When visiting Rotterdam, take a watertaxi (call +31104030303) from the city centre and go for the SS Cruiseship Rotterdam. It is fun to get there by boat, it is fun to explore the ship itself. You can go there for just a drink (the Lido terrace has nice views), dinner and/or spent the night in one of the cabins.

To have lunch on board of a true ocean liner (of the past) is very impressive for our 5 kids (actually 4 as the youngest would not notice the impressive size and height of the SS Rotterdam. The captain's lunch is very nice. And hey the pressence of a (kids) swimming pool brought us a bit into trouble; how to... More

We've just got home from a one night stay in Rotterdam. We chose the SS Rotterdam thinking it would be a unique experience, but were a little apprehensive as the photos did not really paint the hotel in a very positive light. Upon arrival, we were very impressed with the grandeur of the ship's reception area and our two year... More

A nice spot to have a Little wind when no place has any of it on a warm day in summer. Enough people to serve on the pooldeck. Fresh beer and cold drinks enough. Not all area's have free acess. But i can imagine you do not want all kinds of people in the machineroom walking and touching all kinds... More

This hotel is onboard the retired cruise liner SS Rotterdam. Our cabin was not large but it had been renovated to a good standard. There was wifi but not strong in your cabin. The ventilation was not strong. There are cafes and restaurants on board but there were some complaints about the quality of the food and the service. If... More

When i saw this hotel, i thought that would be a unique experience and it was. The ship-hotel offers a "time-travel" and an oportunity to stay in a very historic place, part of roterdam`s history. I wont tell you anything more, its worth discovering it by yourselves. The only disadvantage is the fact that is far away from the city-centre... More

It seems exciting to stay on a cruise ship for a hotel, but there are good and bad aspects of it. I'll go through them all. First, the room we have is very spacious and quite comfortable as far as furnishings are concerned. The bed is very comfortable, I love having a table and two chairs as well as a... More

We visited SS Rotterdam on our recent trip as we were advised that it was good to visit. It took us quite a long time to find it as it is tucked away on the further side of the port, but you do get to explore and see local neighbourhoods on the way which is a nice thing. We boarded... More
