“A trip to early 20th century in rotterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Singular building, the office of the Holland America line. Located at the end of the pier, it offers excellent views on the river. A bit far from the old city center by foot, it can be easily reached by watertaxi.
Fantastic early 20, end 19th century iron staircase, nicely decorated bedrooms, renovated bathrooms, this hotel has a lot of charm with all modern comfort (excellent beds, I did not check the wifi though). I definitely prefer the (more expensive) rooms with river view, on the side or in the front of the building.
The Breakfast buffet is impressive (you can also make your coffee-nespresso- or thea in your room by the way). The restaurant is quite good (one of my favorite place to eat razor clams) and the wines (mainly the whites) are OK, red glass by the wine not excellent (but question of taste). It can be noisy though when full (often the case at night), but the atmosphere is great, a real trip back in time.
Parking is not an issue (but you have to pay).

Room Tip: For the price difference, if you like the light, choose the ones alongside the river or in front of...

Breathtakingly designed hotel in the building of the embarkation of poor and persecuted European emigrants to the USA with the Holland America Line in the 19th century. Great vibrations, elegant, class, with many personal touches, elements of former times. Fantastic view from the Wilhelmina Pier. Ever since I found this hotel, quite by chance, some years ago, I never go anywhere else when in Rotterdam. In fact, when I have to travel to Rotterdam, I'm already looking forward to the hotel - which is a real compliment from someone who sleeps out 200+ nights/year. Is it perfect? No, the lighting could be better in some rooms. But it's better than perfect, it's real, it's lively and there is this special consciousness about being part of something bigger than life, part of the history of mankind. Very appeasing. The restaurant is a huge hall, with great ambiance and fantastic seafood.

Room Tip: The corner rooms ! They are not cheap, but frankly, the feeling , the view is just out of this world...

Love the atmosphere and surroundings. The beds are super! (I would like to have myself) In the summer you can sit at the terras with view on the waterside. Breakfast buffet is good but too expensive. It's nice to do the afternoon tea (you won't need dinner afterwards). Good choice of food which can be ordered from noon until late in the evening. Can recommend to take the watertaxi to the other side ore Leuvenhaven.

The hotel looks out from the pencil of a brilliant designer. The atmosphere really reminds one of the passengers' stations of the ports at the beginning of the century. The rooms (mine was superior type) are very large, maybe a little dark. Furnishings are all inspired to passengers' baggage. Bed is fabulous. Bathrooms could be more modern and comfortable as they. There is no minibar and you must use the room service. Prices are to high for the services provided (160 Euro per night with breakfast). The restaurant is really great. The hotel is positioned far away from anything.

Booked the hotel two months in advance and asked one question which had to be confirmed in order for the booking to be ok. No problem, so I booked. Upon arrival the staff tells me - after completing the check in - sorry, your request can not be fulfilled.

I have a simple policy for that: there is no chance of a rating above poor, no matter how good the rest of the stay is.

The rest of the stay was quite ok, by the way, but no more than that. Rooms are a bit small, bathroom could be better and the restaurant on the ground floor is quite noisy.

I will not go back to this place ever again.

We knew the restaurant, but never stayed in the hotel. We can recommend it to anyone. The rooms are good, the atmosphere is great, the staff is nice, breakfast and restaurant are good and the location is superb. Visit the museum district by boat taxi, walk to Katendrecht and the SS Rotterdam over the new walking bridge. This is the best place and location for any visit to Rotterdam. Out of the city (shopping) center, in the heart of the new cultural district, so you are prevented from spoiling hours with unattended shopping. Instead you are in the middle of cultural events and institutions. For families: the hotel doesn't have connecting rooms, but the family rooms with two double beds are very appropriate for a family of four. Don't miss this when you visit The Netherlands!

We enjoyed our stay in the restaurant and hotel until we tried to order a bottle of wine in our room. We were denied room service, as per the hotels policy we were not allowed to have other hotel guests over in our room. We understand the hotel wants to prevent loud room parties at night, however, it should have been clear to the staff that we just wanted to have a quiet last drink after the hotel bar had closed (at 1am, quite early in my opinion). When trying to explain our situation we were baffled by the extremely rude response of the staff, who told us to " listen and shut up". Very bad service, even for Dutch standards.
