A good location if you are prepared to go to not tourist type bars and restaurants. Within a 10 minuet walk.

When in Rotterdam take the time to visit this former cruise ship from the Holland America line. Step back in time and enjoy a guided tour given by former employees from the ship. We spoke to a guide who visited New York City over 200 times when the ship was still at sea. Great stories, lovely hotel to spend the...

It is sn old ship but with all the modern fascilities a meeting location needs. The rooms (or cabins) are large (at least mine was: A020), small bathroom with shower, safe...

Dear Milo1967, Thank you very much for your kind review on this website. Did you know that most original 'small-sized cabins' are combined into larger hotel rooms? All with great respect to the original decoration and furniture used in the 1950's and 60's. I hope to welcome you again soon for a return visit! Kind regards, Jeroen Trouw Front Office...

Very nice and special hotel. Except for the fact the ship is not moving you feel like on a trip over the ocean. Rooms are very good, clean, quit, with good beds. Restaurant is top. Good friendly staff.

Excellent location (the best possible) with a beautifull view. Very good breakfast. Beautiful building with an interesting historie. Great rooms and facilities. Parking is very expensive. Hotel is not cheap but worth it. The restaurant in the basement is EXCELLENT!!! What a treat. Great food. Highly recommended!

If you visit Rotterdam and always wanted to go on a cruise but never got to it go for a night on the SS Rotterdam.
