The hotel was in a good location - within strolling distance to the excellent museum district and on a couple of tram lines. The hotel recommended a couple of the local bars and restaurants and we were happy with their choices. Will definitely plan on staying here next time we visit Rotterdam

Really lovely staff who were all very welcoming. The room was a great size and the breakfasts were amazing.We liked the staff, the cost and the location. No complaints at all. Lovely little garden as well (with a friendly little cat that comes to visit).

This is a traditional building with classical style rooms with high ceilings. It is conveniently situated for the centre of town on a quiet street. Although the rooms are traditional, they are very well equipped- air conditioning, T.V..(with BBC1 &2), iron and board and tea/coffee making facilities. Very comfortable beds. There is a bar which also serves light refreshments and...

I can't believe people giving high score to this hotel, it doesn't deserve it. It is average at most! It is located in a remote area, you cannot really walk to the center and believe me I am a fan of walking and discovering cities. The rooms are ugly and dated. My parents were on the older side which was...

This hotel is in a great part of town: close to conference areas, near the museums and fab bars. It is the most beautiful, light-filled hotel, with balconies at the back, and rooms over leafy streets at the front. There are tea-making facilities and a fridge in each room. The beds are sumptuous. The staff is just lovely. I would...
