We sailed in to Rotterdam on the ms Rotterdam from Fort Lauderdale at the end of April, 2017. We were off the ship and at the ss Rotterdam by 10am - too early to check in but we realised that. Left our five suitcases and went sight-seeing. We returned around 1500 hours; registered and I asked for the cases to...

I stayed on the SS Rotterdam for a business meeting and it's a great place to visit. They have retained many of the old cruise ship features and the staff are all dressed as crew members still. The public areas are well-maintained and tastefully decorated in keeping with the shipboard experience. The rooms though still feel a little too much...

Due to a business meeting I had the chance to stay on the SS Rotterdam. Outstanding was the friendly stuff that always proofed helpful in each situation. Boat is kept in the style of the 50ties - so it appears a bit old fashioned. My room was spacious, clean and quiet, so was the bathroom. Breakfast was nothing special.

I'm a ship fan, and that's why I chose this hotel for one of our two nights in Rotterdam. It was easy to get there; we took the metro and once we got off, there was a courtesy van to take us to the ship. It was the flagship of the Holland America Line in 1958, the biggest ship to...

We stayed for one night. Somewhat special experience to be on board a cruise ship. Not a particularly luxurious ship though. Cabin/bedroom is sufficiently large. The best part being a large Samsung flat screen TV. Small bathroom with shower. Somewhat annoying lacking a shower cap for the lady. Limited cupboard space, whereby one cupboard space being occupied by a large...

My wife and me stayed the fourth time in this Hotel. Again we had the same room like we had in the stays before. Very friendly welcome at the reception. Breakfast was very good in the Restaurant with a good view over the Harbour. Will have a business meeting again in April 2018 and for sure will book the SS...

The former Luxus Liner SS Rotterdam gives you the feeling living in the 60ths. Having a drink on the Lido terrace (sun deck) while enjoying the sunset - what more do you need. Excellent dinner in the Lido Restaurant with amazing view over the "Nieuwe Maas".

We had an amazing stay! Sleeping on the ship gives you the feeling as if you where away a 1000 miles! Very helpfull and nice staff! Magnificant location, definitely worth trying. We had a three-course-diner in the Lido restaurant, delicious!

Nice hotel. Lots of novelty value in staying here. Appropriately referbished and well maintained. Very good standard of breakfast and dinner served by professional and well presented staff. Very good standard of bars, but limited variety of wines/spirits available. Quite pricey (in every way) and for that reason I would probably limit any future stays to one or two nights....
