Located out of town towards the south part of the city to be closer to the Feyenoord Football Stadium for an international match. Attentive service at the Lido Restaurant outdoors on the top deck and served good food with superb views over the River Maas. The ship and it's rooms are a bit old with dated hardware. Windows don't open and can be a bit claustrophobic. Breakfast buffet served was sufficient for our needs. A taxi to central station will cost you around 20 euros.

This weekend we stayed at this cruise ship which is turned into a hotel for the second time. Like the first time we really enjoyed our stay and the vintage vibes of the place. We did the tour of the upper decks this time which we skipped last time so it was nice to see some more of the ship. Also, kudos to the lovely volunteers who told us passionate stories about the ship and their personal life experiences.nnGave 3 stars because for a 4-star hotel the service is not as good as you'd expect. The staff on the Lido deck is friendly but doesn't have a great eye for detail. On several tables (including ours) the empty glasses and plates were not taken away regularly so we ended up with quite a full table of empty glasses. Also the waiters got our order wrong a couple of times. The app from which you can order via QR also doesn't contain all the dishes on the menu. In our hotel room a hairdryer was missing and our friends who stayed in the room next to us had dirty coffee cups used by the previous guests still in it.nnWe love this place and will most likely return again in the future but the staff need to up their game a bit. This may be due to the aftermath of COVID and staff shortage though.

We came for drinks and a bite on the Lido deck on the aft section of the ship. We ordered oisters alongside our drinks. The young folks in the restaurant service were clearly not experienced with that, a lot of grit in them from clumsy opening and we did not receive any forks, napkin or even a slice of bread which is kinda standard practice. But there was a senior guys who fixed that and the location is still superb so we weren't bothered too much by it.

Amazing place to visit or stay! Rooms were a bit small compared to the ship size, but rest was perfection. Great place to also celebrate events. Must visit!

Was unique place to stay. Ship is still largely decorated mid century which I presume is in keeping with the ships original style. Room was spacious. Downside was it isn’t that child friendly (ie. no kids bikes for rent) and it is a little out of town. Recommended for a unique holiday stay.

The ship is absolutely beautiful. The location is great. The layout is a bit of a maze compared to the more standard hotels. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.

An incredible place.nnIf staying at the Hotel onboard, the rooms are authentic, with many original fittings; there's a fantastic bar, again original, plenty of memorabilia dotted around and a restaurant that does the best cheesecake (the rest of the food is great too).nnThe tours (2 different tours are available daily. One goes up, to the bridge, first class areas, etc., one goes down to the engine and machinery rooms) are also fantastic. Partly self guided, but primarily guided by multilingual guides who previously worked on the boats and are full of interesting anecdotes.nnNote that some of the more expensive rooms come with a free tour.

The ship that was build for the Holland America Line. Brought the emigrants in eight days to the US. Thereafter a cruise ship. All old sentiment and artefacts.are om board and the whole atmosphere is authentic. Even the steam engine is complete and could be functional according to the board engineer. Worth a visit. We had dinner on a nice summer evening, with BBQ and buffet. Very well taken care off and with friendly staff. Veggy beetroot burgers were available as well. On the fifth floor the view.st.the deck was great. Also a hotel, but I did not check the rooms.

What a great place to visit. Not only is this a 60s time capsule, where you wonder what it would be like being on a cruiser like this, but the whole experience is stunning. Food is good but what struck me the most is that everyone working there is genuinely friendly and helpful! Do not skip this opportunity when visiting Rotterdam.

Everything about this ship is very impressive! A must-visit when you are (or live) in Rotterdam. I actually live within walking distance and therefore have not stayed in the hotel but have frequently enjoyed drinks and lunches/dinners here. Every visit feels like a mini cruise... Highly recommended!

Loved the whole experience, Lido grill serves a good quantity for price charged, you will not leave hungry wanting to go home and eat again. Really good steak, burgers and mocktails. The restaurant staff are dressed ship crew uniforms which was fascinating to watch. Staff are really friendly. The tour inside the ship was an extraordinary experience, especially at the deck. Would love to visit this place again and check out the Bar.

The staff are very attentive and wonderful.nThe food for dinner at the Lido Grill was amazing - the smoked chiken out of this world!nIt is important and fun to take the tour of the ship - you see and learn so much. I look forward to staying again.

If you've never been on a real ship, then this is a perfect chance for you to do so. It is absolutely free of charge. Might be a good choice if you plan to give a tour for a friend or a family member in Rotterdam. Plus you can also enjoy some restaurants there, but I've never had time for food there yet.

Beautiful ship. Went last December and I wish theyu2019d let us know most areas were closed and they werenu2019t doing any tours when we booked.nIt is really well maintained, with gorgeous views and walking distance from shops. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfy. Will probably come back.

Very interesting historical cruise ship full of art which was commissioned upon construction in the late 1950s. Now kind of a living museum, permanently parked in Rotterdam and in use as an hotel with comfortable rooms in the former passenger huts. Various restaurants and bars now closed due to Covid but you can still book an hotel room and pickup food from the restaurant.
