Wonderful building in great location. The Hotel New York is definitely something special. The room was individual and it was just a pleasure to walk up the metal staircase each day (there is a lift BTW!). Very atmospheric. We loved it.
There are (nearly) always some negatives and the weakness at the New York was that although the restaurant space is fantastic, the food fails to match up. Perhaps our expectations were too high.
The overall experience was an extremely positive one - topped off by being excellent value for money. If we are ever in Rotterdam again, we will definitely come back! No question about that.
