This lovely and unique hotel brings back memories of the era of the great ocean liners. The ship is restored to its vintage days and is well worth a visit. The tours of the ship include everything from the bridge to the engineering spaces. The 10 minute video of a crossing to New York is very interesting. My stateroom on...

Not a big room but it's normal cause your still on a ship or boat whatever .Very comfortable rooms and very lovely. 20 minutes to Rotterdam center and a good view of the port.! It's a unique way to sleep in Rotterdam.

In december 2015 we spent two days and one night on board the ss Rotterdam, a former ocean liner / cruiseship. The ship still has the grandeur of an ocean liner taking people across the Atlantic Ocean. It let's you experience - at least a bit - what it must have been to travel between continents before planes took over....

The SS Rotterdam is a unique hotel in Rotterdam. The previous Holland America Cruise ship brings you back to the 50s with its unique decor. The location of the hotel is on Katendrecht and it is easy accessible to the city centre. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service to its nearby Metro station. The rooms are comfortable and...

We stayed here one night in a superior room in spring 2015. The setting is great, the staff is helpful and friendly and the cabin clean and spacious. The good part is that you do not have to stay on the boat all the time. Breakfast is buffet style and offers a great variety of almost everything. Within walking distance...

Having previously stayed at Hotel New York (former headquarters of the Holland America Shipping Line), I decided to try their sister hotel, the ss Rotterdam for something different and was not disappointed.

The location is obviously a little unusual but the dining experience did not meet my expectations. Having been on a modern cruise liner earlier this year my expectations were set by that and this fell somewhat below that. The service was very slow - only one waiter for a large group most of the time - and the food when...

This hotel really gives you this Titanic feeling (time and atmosphere, not the sinking part). Beautiful with all historic details and people dressed as they should on a ship. Also location is fantastic as you can take a watertaxi direct to city centre. Takes only 10 minutes and is a very nice trip. Service on board the SS Rotterdam is...

I have stayed on the SS Rotterdam 5 times in the past 4 years on work related tips and enjoy it tremendously. Prices are good for classy accommodation and a great breakfast.
