Book the houseboat Rooms on Water

Moniek eigenaar RoW
I am Moniek van der Werff and the owner of Rooms on Water, which is my brand new group accommodation, b & b and meeting location on a houseboat in the centre of Rotterdam. It is situated on board an almost 40 meter long inland barge. In 2017 I had it converted into a luxurious and comfortable venue.
Of course this is a gay friendly accommodation.

Group accommodation

Rent this beautiful houseboat with your friends, family or company. Enjoy this comfortable ship on a top location.

Bed & breakfast

Rent a room during the week or last minute in weekends.
You may fold out your laptop and work in the living room with free WiFi,
or just enjoy your stay with a drink on the terrace or in the living room.

Meeting Location

Stay on board in combination with a workshop, meeting or company outing. Take a break and go by Watertaxi to the other side of the river, have dinner in one of the nearby restaurants

How my guests experienced my accommodation Rooms on Water….

As a last minute booking, easy arrangements for arrival and departure possible (just ask what’s possible!) There’s a personalised entry code for ship (safety) and clean, modern and private experience inside. Cool art and furniture everywhere! The breakfast options were very nice, fresh and tasty! Pieter (B) febr. 2019

Absolut gelungen. Das Frühstück war sehr lecker mit frischem Obstsalat, Joghurt, Müsli, Wurst,Käse,Brot, Brötchen, Marmelade, etc und Eier in verschiedenen Variationen. …es hat absolut nichts gefehlt. Die Zimmer sind modern eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und sehr ortskundig. Das Schiff liegt sehr zentral und trotzdem ruhig. Man kann auf Deck entpannen nach dem Erkunden der Stadt und dem Hafen. Jens (D) sept. 2018

Great place, location, Host. Fun to stay on a House Boat.
It is a houseboat. What’s not to like. We had drinks on the top deck 1 evening and the next it rained so we had dinner & drinks below. It was clean, it had a large common area, modern facilities and the Host, Moniek, was Fantastic. She helped with local attractions and suggestions for Site Seeing. She prepared Breakfast which was great. I have already recommended this place to others. Bryan (VS) sept. 2018

Localización perfecta y anfitriona perfecta.
La situación perfecta en el centro de Rotterdam en un alojamiento tradional holandés en medio de una ciudad moderna y cosmopolita.
Todo perfecto. Lorenzo (Espana/ Zimbabwe), Aug. 2018

A joyful stay in central Rotterdam and a terrific hostess
I liked the reception we got, very friendly and helpful. Cooking possibilities for special needs was excellent. Nice breakfast table for social contact with other travellers. A small sun deck was available, very nice. Close to city centre. (Note of the owner: There is 1 big table and there are 2 small tables in the living room, so when you want to have breakfast without socializing, that’s no problem). Jan (Se) July 2018

Der Empfang war sehr herzlich und persönlich. Man fühlt sich sofort sehr willkommen. Der Aufenthaltsraum überrascht für ein Schiff mit seiner Größe. Frühstück war sehr lecker und reichlich. War alles da und Sonderwünsche werden, so weit es möglich ist, gerne erfüllt. Wolfgang, (D) Juli 2018

Perfect place, I recommend for 150%
This accommodation was absolutely great. Perfect location in the very center of Rotterdam, nice and kind owner who provided useful information, the boat is beautifully equipped with all you need for your stay. Katherina (CZ) June 2018

Wonderful experience, I am definitely coming back!
I was amazed by the wonderful work been made on this ship to turn it into a modern residence of high standards. The owner is a very nice lady, ready to help with everything and made me feel that somehow I was returning home! Thank you for that! Ionna (D) Juni 2018

Todo muy bien. La atención del personal excelente, el desayuno muy bueno. Una opción de muy buena calidad, concepto muy interesante. En un punto muy bien ubicado, comunicado y tranquilo. Es de lo mejor que hemos reservado. Gracias Rooms on Water. Mario (MX) Mayo 2018

We enjoyed our stay in Rooms on Water
Staying on a boat is an experience one should try once and “Rooms on Water” is a great place to try it for the first time. If it is not your first time, you will still enjoy this boat.
The location is great. The boat is located in a very central location from where you can walk to anywhere important in the city;
The owner Moniek is very nice and helpful. In our three days of stay, she was very friendly towards us and she helped us with anything we needed;
The boat is recently renovated and all the facilities are new. The rooms were very clean.

Un B & B sur une péniche à Rotterdam, c’est génial!
Situation très centrale à deux pas du musée Maritime, dans une darse avec très peu de passage;
Aménagements neuf, très bonne douche, design contemporain mais chaleureux; Bon petit déjeuner avec produits bios, thés et tisanes à disposition dans la salle à manger pour le soir, boissons payantes disponibles dans la frigo. Hôtesse charmante et prévenante;

Nous sommes sur une péniche, les cabines ne sont donc logiquement pas très grandes mais largement suffisantes. Le bateau est près de lieux de vie qui peuvent être bruyants aux beaux jours, mais nous mêmes n’avons vraiment pas été dérangés. Xavier (FR) April 2018

Beautiful boat, delicious breakfast, top locationGeraldine vandenWeghe, group friends, March 2018

Awesome experience, stay in a beautiful boat in the center of Rotterdam. Definitely worth it and very comfortable bed!” Aloyso (BR) March 2018

Very nice location! Boat has been beautifully renovated. Hostess creates a unique, cozy atmosphere. With a group of colleagues a meeting package of 2 days reserved. Everything went more than just fine and the food was excellent. Both business and private advisable! We will go back in any case! Claudia Alpheios dec. 2017

The houseboat Rooms on Water

The ship has 6 luxury cabins, each with a private bathroom with toilet, sink and shower, underfloor heating and air conditioning. In addition in each bedroom there is an opening window with flap. (a porthole)

The living room is cosy with movable tables. The well-equipped kitchen can be used if you stay with a group and rent the complete accommodation. The spacious terrace on deck with benches and a table makes it complete. Here you can enjoy the port of Rotterdam and the city dynamics.

Rotterdam centre.

Rooms on Water has a unique location: in the back of the Leuvehaven, next to the statue of Zadkine and the Maritime Museum. From here you can walk to the city centre and it is only a 5-minute-walk to the subway stations Churchill/Beurs and Blaak,  the Markthal and many nice shopping streets. The jetty of the water taxi is round the corner.
