1.5 meters society
A concept that until recently nobody had heard of, is now becoming part of our daily life.
Rooms on Water is open and has prepared well for the Covid-19 measures so that your stay on board is safe, but also relaxed.
The additional general measures we have taken to increase your safety during your stay with us:
B & B / hotel
Initially we will open max 5 rooms (instead of all 6), so that everyone can stay in the living room at the same time and have breakfast or sit on the roof terrace.
Of course you have to comply with all conditions required by the government, so give each other space when moving and always keep a distance of 1.5 meters.
We offer the following options from 1 June:
From 1 July, the following is possible in the group accommodation Rooms on Water, whereby the 1.5-metre rule must always be observed if the group consists of several households.
Rooms on Water is located in the heart of Rotterdam center, making parking on the street expensive.
The rate is € 4,00 / hour (between 9 am and 11 pm, thursday till sunday between 9 am and 1 am).
But…. There are alternatives!
– Free parking at a P + R (max. 72 uur), after which you travel back and forth by public transport.
– ParkBee Visserdijk, (https://parkbee.com/nl/parkeergarage/vissersdijk). This car park is very close by and the cheapest (€11/ 24 hours). Please note: Reservations can be made via internet, the max. height is 1.80 meters;
– Parking garage De Markthal (https://parkereninmarkthal.nl/reserveren/). This parking garage uses different rates, but also has a rate of € 17.50 / 24 hours. You have to book in advance by internet;
– Wijnbrugstraat car park. € 2 / hour. €24/ 24 hours.
You can take the train to Rotterdam central, hence it is 15-20 minutes walk to the Wolfshoek where the ship is located.
By metro (line C, D or E) from Rotterdam you can get off at the stop Beurs / Churchill and take exit ‘Maritiem Museum’.
You can also take the train to station Blaak. From there it is a 5-10 minute walk to Rooms on Water.
Rooms on Water is located next to the intersection of metro lines. A and B go from east to west v.v., and therefore also from P + R Kalingse Zoom to the Beurs / Churchill stop (see parking).
The lines C, D and E go from north to south, e.g.
It is just 10 minutes to AHOY, and there are even more hotspots to reach quickly.
Tram / Bus
Also the tram and bus stops are around the corner.
Here is a link to a RET page with more info about the routes of tram and metro: https://www.ret.nl/home/reizen/kaarten-plattegronden.html
Rotterdam uses a rate of 4.5% per person per night.

The most important house rule is:
You treat the accommodation and its inventory / contents with respect.
In 2017 I worked hard to convert the ship’s hold into the beautiful, athmosferic accommodation that it is now and which I am very proud of.
If something does break, please report it to me. I live on the back of the ship.
It is of course forbidden to smoke in the entire accommodation. It is allowed on deck on the roof terrace. There is also a large ashtray. Do not throw the remnants overboard.
You will find all the rules: House rules NL Rooms on Water
Those who rent the group accommodation, I ask on board Extra houserules groups English to read and sign. This is to prevent discussion afterwards.
Of course we think privacy for every visitor of this website is important.
