The Stoomschip Rotterdam is a four-star hotel and the largest ocean liner ever built in the Netherlands. As a former flagship of the Holland-America Line and cruise ship, the ss Rotterdam has sailed many oceans since 1959. The ship is now permanently moored in the Maashaven in Rotterdam, near Katendrecht. The history of the ship is tangible on board.
The hotel is located on board the former cruise ship, with 254 hotel rooms in three special themes: ‘Original’, ‘Manhattan’ and ‘Bahamas’. These illustrate the journeys made by the ss Rotterdam between the years 1959-2000. The rooms can be recognized by their design style from the fifties, with original elements.
But there is more to do on board, take one of the guided tours of the ship, get locked up in an escape room, or celebrate your (children’s) party!
Guests can enjoy the Club Room and Lido restaurants and the Oceans Bar and Captain Lounge bars. There are also 12 different authentic rooms and 29 meeting rooms for meetings. The ss Rotterdam is easily accessible by car or public transport. From metro Rijnhaven, bus 77 takes about 10 minutes. There is a spacious parking lot (paid) on the quay. You can also rent an (electric) bicycle at the ss Rotterdam.
