The location on a quiet canal (channel?) is great; walking distance to everything downtown. Our room on the upper deck was clean and quiet, with a little terrace. Good water pressure and hot water, which was a nice change from smaller B&Bs we stayed at on this trip.

There was open wifi in our room, but it didn't seem to be the hotel's. Sorry, random Rotterdamer whose wifi I used!

While visiting Rotterdam, I was looking for an "exotic" alternative to standard hotels...
Luckily I was to find H2otel thanks to Tripadvisor!

The boat is located in a calm channel, a few minute walk from the city center.

I was warmly velcomed by the staff. Travelling alone, I choose the smallest room, that was very cosy: a comfortable bed, a nice office viewing the channel through a boat-type window.
My place was very clean. The atmosphere was unique.

The bar was very pleasant, offering a charming small terrasse on the channel and free wifi.

Definitely the place to visit if you look for a different -but comfortable- place to stay in Rotterdam.

I booked here based on the originality of the hotel and the fast and courteous response i received from the receptionists over email.

The hotel is ideally located in the centre without being on a busy road. The rooms are somewhat small but very comfortable and cosy with good heating which was already on when we checked in which was a nice touch! The room had a small terrace...way to cold to sit out there, but ideal if you are a smoker.
The bathroom was a bit cold, and the drain in the shower seemed to be blocked. We reported this to reception and it seemed like they were already aware of some fault in the drain.
Breakfast was very good with a nice selection of pastries, cold cuts, cereals, and eggs.
The only 2 things I didnt like was the fact that you have to walk outdoors in the cold to get from your room to the breakfast room, and the checkout time of 10:30 is very uncomfortable.
Otherwise staff were very friendly and helpful so I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel!

Location, location, location. H2otel offers a unique location, very quiet and yet very central in the city center. Perfect.

On the other hand, they charge you accordingly. My partner and I stayed in the 'luxe kamer' for E 140 a night. This room in truth is cramped as any hut on a ship and has no romantic view whatsoever. It is clean and comfy, but for such a top prize, one truly may expect more. The breakfast is standard industrialised fare to the accompaniment of CNN tv - to be avoided, if you can.

Very helpful and friendly receptionist on arrival and departure. We had a terrace room overlooking the old bridge and red boat - perfect and really felt like a private little space for us. Great location near Maritime Museum, Oude Haven, Bloc Treehouses and Dudok Cafe - do visit! - the apple pie is amazing and good friendly service in a gorgeous building. Great spot to people watch too. Also recommend Bagel & Beans (all over Netherlands). The one in Rotterdam was great! Can't wait to get back to Rotterdam soon.

This is a good value accomodation in Rotterdam. We only needed to stay for one night and really were not planning to spend any time in the room. Cute little room with sofa bed for children. Bathroom modern. Nice enough breakfast, nothing fancy. Easy to get taxi or water taxi to destinations. Quiet and comfortable.

This hotel is somewhat of an hidden gem: in the middle of Rotterdam skyscrapers, it's a small boat (attached to the street) in the haven. The place is actually quite charming.

When we arrived we were welcomed by the girl at the reception, who showed us the main places on the map, told as a couple of things about Rotterdam, and told us where to eat and hang around.

The rooms (at least on the top deck, where I was) have a nice modern decor (which I suspect is different from room to room). Try to get a room at the edge of the boat, so you'll have a small outside terrace for free. WiFi is available but not free of charge: I didn't try it so can't tell how it works. Room are very clean and well kept.

We went to the bar on the lower deck, which has a floating terrace on the haven. I would recommend to have a drink there while watching the skyscrapers and the passing boats. If you plan to drink more than a couple of pints, you'll better off moving to the inside bar, as it floats way less. :)

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place. It's also very central, and in walking distance to many spots.
