“Unique and fun!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few days in August after we had just moved to Rotterdam. Our room had a private balcony and it was clean and comfortable. The whole boat aspect is fun and different. Breakfast was cold buffet but delicious and there is a hotel bar with free wifi. The staff were friendly and super helpful. Just a note, keep your windows closed at night there are many mosquitos!

I stayed here for 2 nights. The receptionists were very helpful. The hotel is located quite near to station.
The room is very small & basic but very clean. There is a tiny window in the room, but not much view. No Wifi in the room. Supposedly the room didnt come with breakfast, but the receptionist told us that because it was weekend, so they provided breakfast for all guests. It was so sweet eventho just a very simple & basic breakfast. The big pro of this hotel is they have a small elevator. It was very useful for the guests like us who had a big luggage. :)

We came across this hotel by accident during our last visit to Rotterdam and looked forward to a unique stay on a floating hotel. The rooms like all hotels in the city are on the small side, but very functional and tastefully decorated. There are a lot of benefits in being in a smaller hotel and there are some great restaurants nearby. The staff are very friendly and went out of their way to make everybody feel welcome during a busy jazz festival weekend. We have booked again for next year !

Room Tip: Having a large porthole is nice, especially if it rains and so go for the lower level.

Very central, yet on nice quiet waterway. Very friendly and helpful staff, bartender was lovely. Nice deck near the bar and I wish I had had the time to try one of the picnicboats - they looked great, you need to book a couple of days in advance. Why not 'Excellent'

- need to be clear about kind of room - there is a lot of variation, no problem with mine (plumbing a but noisy), but size and position, privacy, vary
- room wifi is rather expensive on cable at E7.50 per day (though the bar wifi is free and worked)
- if you need a taxi, order it *well* in advance if time is an issue - I nearly missed my train, though took reception advice and bookine

Room Tip: ask them what is possible

This hotel was absolutely incredible. First, the overall concept on water is so cool. The service was A+ honestly it was like being at a 5 star hotel. The owner took us on a boat ride through the water ways, cooked us a home cooked Dutch meal that was amazing, and provided excellent customer service. The bartender was also amazing and deserves much credit. Stay here!!

We ended up here because all the really nice apartment rentals I was looking at in similar price ranges were booked for the 3 days we wanted to stay in Rotterdam. Had come from terrible one night stay at the terrible Hilton, which had zero emotional fengshui. So the H2otel is a good choice only if you're not so picky about surroundings but still want a somewhat pleasant atmosphere.

The fact that it's on a boat is quite cool. I especially liked the private terrace of my upper deck room, from which I even got to watch some dude jump in the canal and get chased by 8 police officers. The bathrooms are clean enough, and I appreciated the effort made to spruce up the upper deck rooms in a somewhat, uh, "contemporary" style. Much better than staying at a soulless chain hotel.

The rooms without terrace access, on the lower floor, are quite claustrophobic. Would not suggest them if you have time to look for other places to stay, I'm pretty sure you can find other places for similar prices that are not so cramped.

Room Tip: The upper deck rooms on the ends of the boat have private terraces. The other ones have shared terra...

Hi, I spent three nights in the H2O hotel. I have to say that it is a nice and clean hotel, and very central in Rotterdam. And the staff is friendly. Nonetheless I really thought that it is too expensive for what it offers, considering that there is no free wi-fi in the rooms and that if you book during the week the breakfast is not included. I guess that what has really put me a little bit off was the fact that on the second night there was a serious problem with the heating system. I basically had to sleep with a jumper plus two blankets (the night receptionist couldn't solve the problem). I was hoping to get at least a sympathetic sign from the direction of the hotel (for example a coffee in the monring!!), but nothing....
