    Great

    Fantastic renovated cruise ship from the mid 20th century, very interesting interior and historic ambiance. Low, extremely acceptable price (from 45 EUR!) is achievable if you book early in advance and internal rooms.

    Getting to the ship hotel is quite complex. The Spido water shuttle should operate up until much later hours than the just presently 17h. One evening a water taxi, as entertaining as it was, charged me 15 EUR from Leuvenhaven to De Rotterdam ! which was a rip-off. Oddly , along this enormous vessel there are no clear signs for the entrance - you might well accidentally enter through the back door of the ship intended just for the crew.

    It was very fun to actually be on a cruise ship, while still being accessible.

    Very good

    I love the entire set up and I also enjoyed the breakfast a whole lot. I love the people and I love the concept. Tourism and relaxation matched together.

    The food in the Lido was excellent and the waiting staff were also very good. The decor of the room was very good.

    The bed was too soft. The shower was just not powerful enough

    Nice location. We stayed only one night, but in a room with no window. We were with a friend who had a big problem with that. We also said one night ok but more than that would not be pleasant.

    Nice

    The ship was excellent and the room was well renovated. The concept is unique.

    However 1) we paid in full for the booking via Booked.net and the hotel staff insisted on charging us again using a higher rate. When I complained and showed them my receipt for Booked.net. they reduced the rate, but still charged me twice! American Express is in the process of recovering my money. 2) Our only meal there was badly handled, with the main course arriving over an hour after we ordered. The waitress gave us free coffee as a token gesture, but clearly service is shaky. 3) When we returned on the Saturday evening after spending the day in Rotterdam, the room stank of smoke, as if someone had sat in our room smoking. It was very noticeable, but when we called the front desk to check, the FO person said he could not really smell anything, being a heavy smoker himself. Very strange indeed. Overall, the ship has some unique features, after all, it is not often you can stay on a converted cruise ship from the 1950s, and my son loved it. But to charge twice for the accomodation and actually lie about the payment of the bill is not something I have seen many times in my life as a regular traveller almost everywhere in the world except Africa so far.

    An impressive former cruise ship as a very original location for a hotel. Beautiful retro interior and good beds.

    Very good

    We enjoyed everything and it was worth the money! The room was spacious and tastefully decorated and I loved the coffee machine and the quality of coffee.

    We went by car so it was convenient to move around- the hotel is not centrally located. The parking though costs 15€/day.. Breakfast and meals are expensive and the room was being cleaned acceptable through out our staying.

    The idea to transfer one ship into a hotel.

    Rooms are nice, all idea is excellent.

    Very good

    the rooms are very nice and the bar at night.

    to far away from the city center, take some extra cash for the taxies

    everything is good, the hotel is perfect and fantastic

    Very good

    Interesting to stay on one of the ships that plied the Atlantic in the heyday of luxury liners. Still retains a nautical ambiance in the cabins, bar and restaurants.

    Access to areas of the ship such as the boat deck restricted - likes to have some fresh air. Though very well priced, the only practical way into the town centre and back was by taxi - add 20 euros

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Pleasant stay, friendly staff,

    The hotel should think about ship shuttle to the centre. Water taxi is not reliable (waiting time from 10min to 30min) and expensive. This is the only reason I will try to find another hotel next time.
