The 4-star Hotel New York is located at the head of the south in the former head office of the Holland America Line with a great view over the busy Nieuwe Maas where large ships and water taxis pass continuously. Thousands of emigrants used to leave here for North America in the hope of a better life. Nowadays, guests come to spend the night here to feel the nostalgia and to taste the special atmosphere of that time.
Hotel New York is one of the leading hotel chains around the globe and finding a room in this hotel is truly everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing experience after you come back from the city's touristy activities.

Until the 1960s, passenger ships of the Holland America Line (HAL) departed from the Wilhelminakade on the Kop van Zuid. Hotel New York (HNY) has been located in the old headquarters of the HAL since 1990. With the grandeur of the former trans-Atlantic shipping, many of the luxury hotel rooms have a view of the Maas River with the old Veerhaven on the other side and the modern skyscrapers in the center. The gigantic cafe and restaurant of Hotel New York Rotterdam is a popular destination for Rotterdammers and day trippers and is usually completely full. The hotel is not cheap, but it is special and often fully booked long in advance, so reservations are recommended.
The rooms at Hotel New York are extremely well-done and are curated by professionals to find a perfect combination between practicality and comfort. So, let's check out the rooms the hotel has to offer;
For this experience we had booked one of the executive suites ourselves. Room 105 with a spectacular view of the water and the Euromast, a 2-person bath in front of the window in the room, a romantic (and burning) fireplace and high ceiling (Note! This high ceiling makes it less suitable for releasing loose helium balloons against the ceiling). to leave). In short: everything you need for a romantic overnight stay in Rotterdam.
Hotel New York has perfect spaces for events and meetings. Ranging from high ceilings to sufficient sunlight and perfect setting for corporate events, you won't have any hiccups. There are seven Bibliotheek rooms available with bookcases installed up to the ceiling. In addition, there is Balszaal available for large-scale presentations, lectures, and business days.

Katendrecht, nicknamed De Kaap, is a former sailor's neighbourhood. Prostitution and Chinese restaurants predominated here until the early 1990s. Now it is an emerging urban district, recently connected to the Kop van Zuid by the Rijnhaven Bridge, near Hotel New York, especially for pedestrians and cyclists. This way you can easily reach Deliplein where we are happy to visit sustainable department store Izmooizo or Deli Bird, a fine Thai restaurant. As a hotel guest, you can enjoy plenty of culinary and cultural experiences at the Kop van Zuid. You will find the Luxor Theater, the Nederlands Fotomuseum, film and theater house Lantarenvenster, De Foodhallen and restaurant Mood (formerly Las Palmas by Herman den Blijker).

In the summer there is a large terrace on the water with a beautiful view of the river and everything that passes by. In the winter it is very hard to get a seat in the gigantic cafe-restaurant.

A must-see for everyone who visits Rotterdam and a great destination during a day out or city trip.
Perhaps just as nice as a visit to Hotel New York is the boat trip you can take there.

But you can also get there on foot or by bike over the Erasmus Bridge or by metro, stop Wilhelminaplein.
