“A great ship”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

A great hotel with a feeling like being "on the high seas" in the "good all times".
Only the reception staff was a bit unfriendly and not too helpful. But overall a great experience and I would come back deff.

Spacious rooms with 50's decoration, Nice view on Rotterdam skyline. Lido restaurant food doable, not great just very convenient. Nice bar with funky live music. Dream away And imagine yourself being on a cruise, nice experience.

Nice. Obviously a different kind of hotel, so it's a interesting alternative. Clean, comfortable and well managed. A little far from city centre. Although you have all what you need in it.
Food ok. What can I say. Dutch.................

We were staying in Paris and traveled to Rotterdam for a one night stay on the SS Rotterdam, docked in the harbor area. We were there to see the fabulous Dutch singer Laura Fygi (don't miss here if you ever have the chance). We had a large cabin that was nicely appointed and quite clean. The special dinner we had aboard that night, we agreed, was the best we've ever had in years of travel in terms of the cuisine and service...an entirely first class experience.

Yes location is not perfect, off-centre; however bus 77 offers connections from doorstep to metro and Zuidplein/Ahoy area. And experience can be a bit crammed due to the ship corridor system with several decks.
But hey, WHAT you get back in turn! Nice quiet area, with the wind blowing around the decks. Superior rooms ('outer cabin', with small windows) are almost suite-like in size while the special-offer price we got was more for a 3-star hotel. Beds, TV, coffee/tea making (Senseo), bathroom - all totally worth the 4-star classification. And so was the included luxury b'fast buffet, with e.g. four types of prepared egg and other American-style hot foods and fruits. Friendly staff, which is helpful especially at the start as it's easy to get lost in the myriad of decks and rooms. Nice promenade deck to restaurants and even a souvenir shop - a living monument to stay in for the night, what more would you want?

Room Tip: Rooms with windows (Superior), otherwise probably it feels a bit crammed

I visited this hotel on business. The concept of turning a former liner into a hotel leads to an interesting place to stay in a pretty average city.
The cabins are almost unchanged from it's liner days, so they are quite compact and old-fashoined, but I suppose that is part of the attraction.
The staff were attentive and the food was good.
More interesting than luxurious.
