Rotterdam offers a wide variety of hotel rooms but only a few within walking distance from the main venue.

You can also stay in the city center, as you can take the Water Taxi directly to platform of the ss Rotterdam (4.5 EUR single trip).

Book a room in one of the international four star hotel chains or in one of the many charming boutique hotels.

The 'official' Engage hotels
Feel free to choose any hotel, room or b&b, by whatever means you like. We only made deals with the hotels mentioned below.
Do check out other 'providers' like, as their rates might even be more interesting!
For all hotels in Rotterdam: rates exclude City Tax: 4.5% per person, per night.
Important: Only the ss Rotterdam has a certain number of rooms available for us, until about a month before the event. If they run out, you'll pay a higher rate!!

Attention Speakers: Due to the high venue cost, we will not be able to pay for your hotel !
