This was fantastic! We had the ship to ourselves and the tour guides (who all worked on the SS Rotterdam when it was sailing the seven seas; got real life insight to how the ship operated and how people made the trans-Atlantic trip and then "cruised", when the ship could no longer compete with airplane travel). The tour was interesting,...

Located a little out the way, it cost 25 euro in a taxi from Rotterdam train station to this hotel. A water taxi serves the hotel up to 0100 that provides a cheaper way of accessing the local nightlife. I booked a superior double room/cabin which was a nice size, there were tea/coffee making facilities, an iron/ironing board and hairdryer...

2 days aboard the SS Rotterdam with a group of friends/ colleagues has been great. Love the old style (intimate) liner without any razzle dazzle! Breakfast menu was European & English which was good for all our party as we are from all corners of Europe, also it was delicious! Our family room (3) was spacious & well presented, with...

We visited SS Rotterdam in mid may and ended up at the Lido restaurant for lunch. We had a nice meal with omelett and spicy chicken. Nice food and good atmosphere. Would absolutely recommend a guided tour on the ship - showing the amazing arts and details, and a part of the exiting history of SS Rotterdam. SS Rotterdam is...

Very Interesting. A little pricey for what you receive. Built in 1958 and decommissioned in 1972. In it's day a real Luxury Liner. Food and drink expensive. Great WATER TAXI for 5.00 Euros per person.

We were there for a business trip. I had never been on a ship like this one, so it was a very interesting and fun experience. The rooms are surprisingly big! The breakfast buffet was excellent, the staff friendly, and the pool on one of the decks a nice surprise (though I didn't get to use it.) Very good value...

My sister and I were on the S. S. Rotterdam when it sailed to New York in the 1960's so we were very much looking forward to staying on it again. I must say I was very disappointed in the decor. It was more like a dormitory than a grand cruise ship. We had hoped to visit all parts of...

When we saw this hotel on internet we had to make a reservation and we were not disappointed. The rooms are large, the staff is very friendly and the food in the Lido restaurant was ok. Breakfast was excellent. Taking a water taxi from the ship to wherever you want to go is very convenient. We enjoyed our stay and...

We used this venue for accommodation and conference facilities. You can hire rooms for a few people or over 500. You can choose various grades of sleeping rooms. Mine was on level A, it was well furnished and very large. The ship was built in the 1950's when cruising was becoming accessible to ordinary people. It is well maintained and...
