This is an ex cruise liner moored in Rotterdam harbour and converted into a hotel. Cabins have become bedrooms and as far as I could see the rest of the ship's interior is much as it was when it sailed. The Rotterdam must date from the 50s or 60s and whilst that gives it a dated appearance it is well...

Dear Lancashireexile, Thanks a lot for your extensive review. We did our utmost to restore the ship into the original atmosphere. Good to hear that our guests, in this case you, experienced this 50s/60s feeling as it was meant to be. Hopefully we may welcome you back on board in the future! Kind regards, Jasper de Vries, Rooms Division Manager

Had a lovely room, spacious. The ss Rotterdam is a wonderful place to stay, so many things to see on board. Two tours to make around the ship (for a small amount of money) Volunteers everywhere along the route to tell you about things and help you further. Several had been working on the ship in the days of cruises....

My wife and I stayed aboard the Hotel Ship SS Rotterdam for my birthday and dined in both restaurants (reviewed separately). Our 'Superior' room was excellent and contained some of the 'retro' furnishings you'd expect aboard a ship built between 1957 and 1959. We would strongly advise taking the escorted tour (headphone-only tours available) without the engine room part. It's...

Get yourself and the misses over to rotterdam on the cheap airlines and spend your money on this hotel as a suprise instead! Great rooms, location and service. A water taxi can take you to the city from its own starboard side pontoon.

Attended a business event at the ship's theatre and adjacent lounge. Everything was perfectly organised. The event included a dinner and the food was very good. I booked a superior room which was fine, although I do not like the split beds, and one of the towel hooks was coming off the door. I have visited SS Rotterdam on multiple...

Is what it is ...... wouldn't want more than a few days but worth a giggle. Around 12-15€ to where the fun to do stuff is. Staff are fabulous can't do enough to help. Quite nice to spend some time in an old world ...... with a flat screen in your bedroom and wifi galore

Lasty weekend we stayed at this wonderfull old cruise ship and we enjoyed it every second. The staff was very friendly and the whole atmosphere was really fabulous. The hotel room was really nice, big and well equipped. The Lido restaurant was also great, and also the Captain's lounge. We also enjoyed a tour across the upper decks on board...

Last Saturday we took a friend to the SS Rotterdam for a lovely dinner in the restaurant on the Lido Deck. Besides the nice food and great atmosphere, what made this extra special is the fact that they are very wheelchair friendly. You see, my friend is in a wheelchair but this was no problem what so ever. We enjoyed...

We booked our room at least two weeks in advance. When we arrived at the boat the room was not available. Bad service, bad communication, no apologies. We were not the only couple who had to deal with this kind of service. According to another hotel this happened more often with the SS Rotterdam. Shameless.

I stayed aboard the Rotterdam for two nights from a Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. The hotel is easy to get to, it's about half-a-dozen stops on the Metro from Rotterdam airport.
