Rooms reserved after it was revealed that Rotterdam will host the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest
The chairman of the Rotterdam Hotel Combinatie (RHC), Roel Dusseldorp has revealed that the rooms were reserved after it was revealed that Rotterdam will host the contest.
On that basis, we keep the same number of rooms available for the participants of the Eurovision Song Contest, journalists, and the organization itself. In principle, each delegation will simply stay in the hotel that was booked last year. If it is possible to admit the public to Ahoy around that time, we can of course add rooms to that.
Roel Dusseldorp also mentioned that having that the reservations have kept hoteliers up, despite the COVID-19 pandemic:
The Eurovision Song Contest could just be the start of the return to our normal life. Then it would be a great pleasure if this could be a success in May.
