The Balszaal is Hotel New York’s largest room, named after cinema legend Hubert Bals. It is an atmospheric room, thanks to chandeliers, wooden floors and tall windows offering a view of the Maas. There is also a giant map painted on the wall, showing the route taken by the Holland America Line’s ships when travelling from Rotterdam to New York.

This room is eminently suited to large business meetings and festive occasions. Thanks to the tall windows, the room gets plenty of natural light and provides a grand view of the Euromast – Rotterdam has never looked better!
Imagine getting married in this location, from which thousands of emigrants once embarked for America… The Balszaal is Hotel New York’s largest wedding room.
