“One of the best hotels in Rotterdam”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

I stayed in this hotel for one night but I can recommend it to anyone who want to visit Rotterdam. The building is special. It was once built as a office for the Holland-America-Line. When they rebuilt it into a hotel they kept the original architectural features of the 1920/1930's. The room are big and well equipt. They restaurant food is good for a fair price. The spot is one of the best locations for the view but a little awy from the centre of Rotterdam. The rivertaxi stops in front of the hotel makes it easier to reach other places in town.

I stayed here on business with several colleagues. Each came down to dinner with the same story - an enormous corner room with high ceilings and harbour views. How is this? Well, the building isn't square, it has lots of indents, the harbour is on at least two sides and the rooms are spread over two very tall floors - so the chances are you'll get a room with many of these features. Added to that, good beds, good shower (no bath at least in my room) and stylish (if a little dark) decor. Not sure whether these were regular Riverside rooms or actual Corner rooms - from the photos, looks like mine was just a Riverside, but it still felt like being on a corner.

The restaurant obviously attracts more than just the hotel guests, which gave it a good buzz. Good prawn cocktail and main courses that followed a fishy theme. We drove in and drove out, not sure the hotel was exactly in the town centre for those using public transport.

Fantastic view on the enormous (largest in the world) harbour of Rotterdam from our room 205 with balcony.
Great service, however it takes them some time after 12.00 hrs. to get the rooms ready.

Room Tip: 135 is very quiet, 205 has a balcony with harbour view, windows on 2 sides of the room. Also free wi...

As a birthday present, my wife, 8-year old daughter and I went to hotel New York. I visited hotel New York a long time ago and in my memory it was a huge building. It still is but compared to the highrises around it, it seems a lot smaller.

Its location is very special with a beautiful view of the river which was great during the day but even more so at night with all the lights. They have a nice terrace where you can have a look at all the boats passing by. If you there for the weekend, parking in the street is free from saturday 6 pm till sunday 12 pm which can save you a few euros.

When you enter the building it gives you a really historic feel. The corridors going to the room were dated and in need for some renovation. In contrast, our room (212) was very modern and in excellent condition. By Dutch standards it was really large and had a nice view on the city center on the other side of the river (I would ask for a room on this side because it has better views than the other side).

Breakfast on sunday is also popular with non-hotel guest, so it was quite busy. The food was good but really felt like a home breakfast rather than a relative luxurious hotel buffet. Service was very dependent on the waitress, there were some very good and bad ones.

The hotel New York is definitely not the standard hotelchain hotel and really something special for a special occasion!

had a very cosy nice room with top quality beds and linen.
lots of space and great view on the harbor and river.
staff is kind and link with restaurant is good.
no noise in the room and possibility to open the windows which is quite important to me. seems not all rooms have this possibility and airco was not working properly i was told by some colleagues.
pro: location
contra: location since you'll have to walk or take a water taxi to go to the centre

Room Tip: ask for river harbor view

Loved thia fantastic converted hotel, it was charming and I had a great room - 207. It was huge, came with a real fireplace and a separate living area. Bathroom was starkly white, but again, plently of space. I would definately come back again, the only dilemma would be if I were to try another room or back to 207.

We stayed here for a few nights. Hotel New York seems to be the former cruise /port terminal of the "Holland America Line" cruise comapny.
We loved the property: old, stylish and classy and we loved the location... overlooking the river with all its activity.
Rooms were nice and large enough. Complete with all the amenities you may expect in such a hotel. Breakfast was good and so were the High Tea and dinner we had in the restaurant downstairs. Always very busy in the restaurant and better to reserve a table even though you are a hotel guest. It is a quiet popular restaurant also for non-hotel guests! Prices are normal/average for dutch standards.
Around the building you will find a few other establishments to chill, or have lunch and/or dinner or just for a drink!

There is a water taxi stop just in front of the hotel, which brings you in no-time to the other side of Rotterdam, let's call that city center for only 8 Euros (I think it was) per person/ow. But no problems with traffic jams and it was good fun! Location of the hotel is still rotterdam Center but no shops in the neighberhood, but therefore you just take the water taxi.
It was great to be in this hotel.

Recommended: holiday makers, buss. travelers, families, groups, disable guests etc. etc.
