I booked a hotel just for one night, having an appointment in the area. Rooms are not really clean, carpets have lots of cigarettes holes, although it is theoretically forbidden to smoke in the entire hotel. They smell the cigarette, just horrible! Also, the following day, no breakfast available! Not to mention the receptionist, not really friendly, who demanded a... More

The location of this floating hotel is great, central, but without the noise. However, what appears to be a charming, Chinese bed for the night is actually a very old, unloved hotel in desperate need of investment. Our bed was big but harder than the frozen canals in winter. I would have been more comfortable on the floor but that... More

My family and I only had a day to visit the city but many things went wrong right after we arrived. Exhausted and unprepared, we were trudging along in low spirits when we came upon New Ocean hotel and restaurant (under the same business), and went in to try our luck. Without a word, the desk manager and owner of... More

Average food and service. I really disliked having seen some chairs with pigeons' excrements. It is outside, but it's their duty keeping the place clean.

Dear Ciub, I want to thank you for the time you took to give us feedback. My name is Ruud Essenberg and I am the director of New Ocean Paradise. You are absolutely right when you say that pigeon excrements need to be cleaned, even outside. However our hotel has been a target for pigeons, seagulls and even little sparrows... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days in June 2012. All in all this hotel provides the service for the money, except there were a number of annoyances which made my staying quite disappointing. The hotel is located right above the Chinese restaurant, and the cooking smell was all over the place, apparently the kitchen extractor was broken. At... More

The hotel, and the rooms were disgusting - I have never stayed in worse accomodation in all my life!! This is a place homeless people stay!! Who ever gave this hotel 3 stars was crazy, it's not even worth half a star..... No internet & there is not even a outside phone line available.

We chose it because of the wonderful location and its novelty. It was easy to find and exotic, with a Chinese supermarket on the ground floor and two huge restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ni Hao! Searching for an Asian experience in the heart of Rotterdam, look no further! This beautiful landmark hotel hosts incredible views of the famous river the Maas. Very large rooms are the ideal base for a city trip and to relax after a day of fun. New Ocean Paradise is a jack of all trades as the venue also has an Asian supermarket and all you can eat restaurant on board. The Asian Floating hotel is an ideal base to go out and explore Rotterdam, a world city that is host to beautiful architecture with contemporary design. We are conveniently situated in the centre west side of the port city. A small walk to the tram will get you to the city centre in about 8 minutes. It is only a 2 minutes’ walk to the Euromast, and 3 minutes to a large city park often host to spectacular (free) festivals. Visiting a concert at Ahoy? You won’t find anything closer; we are only situated 15 minutes away. Contemplating your next move in our world city? Use our free WIFI while enjoying the complimentary breakfast. Our staff speaks Chinese, English and sometimes a little Dutch. They will help making it a trip you won’t forget! See you soon. ... more   less
