For months you have been planning to visit and now you are about to join us. On a beautiful Friday afternoon you drive towards Maasstad to spend some time onboard ss Rotterdam, the famous historic steamship that has carried many passengers to the other side of the ocean. Taking the last bend suddenly you find yourself facing the impressive legend. After parking your vehicle, our crew will be there to welcome you and help you with your luggage. Welcome onboard...
Seeing the ship is an experience in itself. You can feel the excitement passengers of yesteryear must have felt prior to their voyage from Rotterdam to America, ready to start a whole new life. Once you step off the gangplank, and onto to shop, you will feel deliberated. Away from busy city life and day-to-day worries. The ship continues to breathe the air of yesteryear. And each area has something new to offer with the climax being the stern deck treating you to a phenomenal view.
A world class experience
The 254 room hotel onboard ss Rotterdam is city’s most typical hotel. ss Rotterdam is the prestigious, former flagship of the Holland America Line and has seen the world many times between 1959 and 2000. The impressively renovated ship has now been granted a permanent berth in Katendrecht, in the very heart of Rotterdam.
For business visits this without a single doubt is the most suitable hotel in the city. Escape daily routine and use the ship’s state-of-the-art facilities. Surely in this setting you won’t mind working overtime…
The excitement of packing your things for a "mini cruise" will get hold of you even though the ship won’t be sailing anywhere. The authentic setting and unique masterpieces, the style and courtesy of the fifties … visiting the ship means you will be on a voyage of discovery rich in stories. We look forward to welcoming you as our special guest and will make sure staying with us onboard is organised to perfection.
