Book a room at the ss Rotterdam


UPDATE: May, 11th 2021

We understand that the prevailing virus raises the necessary questions. From the ss Rotterdam we closely follow all guidelines of the RIVM, the GGD and the Dutch Government. This means that we have had to close our catering establishments on board since Tuesday 15 December until further notice. However, we are happy to continue to welcome guests to our hotel on board. We can offer our guests the option of having breakfast, lunch and dinner taken away at our restaurant Lido Grill. Besides that, we are now allowed to receive our guests, also the ones who don’t stay at the hotel, at our beautifull Lido Terrace from 12.00 p.m. until 18.00 p.m. .

In addition to this drastic measure, we would like to keep guests informed about other measures that have been taken. For more information about all measures and what we do for your safety on board, see our special information page.
