Stayed on the SS Rotterdam for 4 nights, costing £391 between 2 people for a superior room.
First impressions of the ship/hotel are very impressive. Looks great at night when it is lit up, and a good job has been done restoring and converting the ship into a nice hotel. Nice bar, with friendly staff, though we didn't make much of the dining options as they were all a little expensive.
The room was clean, spacious and had comfortable beds. The bathroom had a wet room shower, which I don't think is appropriate in a four star hotel (I despise it when water gets all over the bathroom floor!). Service was friendly and accommodating throughout the stay.
On the negative, the hotel is quite far from anything else, and it is about 20 minutes walk to the nearest metro station. A little annoying when strapped for time. There is a free shuttle from the ship to the metro, but hours are very limited. Parking at the designated space is also expensive at 15 euros for 24hrs. Breakfast is also 20 euros, so we did not partake.
This is a nice hotel with a few big drawbacks. However, the novelty of staying on a historic ship does ease these a little.More
