Hotel description
If you would like to make your stay in Rotterdam even more memorable you should book a night here. It's docked in one of the old harbours of the city center, near all Rotterdam's architectural highlights. You will feel right at home on our boat with its young and helpful crew. The price per person per night is 22,50 including breakfast, bed linen and a memory you'll never forget.
