I don't know where to start: elevator out of order (useful when your room is at 4th floor), the poverty of the room.. The bed is awful as hell. I've never had a so horrible night in a hotel. The smell is horrible, the mattress is totally broken. You've got only one electric socket, at the other end of the...

This hotel is only 5 minutes from the central station, good location and price for me. The room looked perfectly new, I asked in the reception and they told me the room got renovated a week before. In my opinion they should have done the bathroom also it looked really old fashioned, however the room itself was small but very...

The hotel certainly isn't charming, but it is reasonably priced. Both price wise and appearance wise it looks more like a hostel than a hotel. The carpet was stained, but the bed linen was clean, as well as the bathroom facilities. The receptionist was friendly.

Whilst the breakfast buffet at the hotel was okay, the rest of our stay was quite unpleasant. The staff initially had got our booking wrong, putting us in a twin room instead of a double, and after we had viewed the room and asked to change, the staff gave us key cards that didn't even work. Our initial impression of...

Truly delightful welcome from lovely lady. On-web photos of rooms looked great. The corridors are really shabby and smelt of damp. The lift is archaic. The room, once inside, was trying hard, but I could only compare it to an Ibis Hotel room in a shabby old building, that needed a make over in the rooms and desperately in the...

Very convenient hotel near the central train station. The old furnishings were a plus for me rather than a minus, gives the place charm. Very friendly and helpful staff. My only minus was the breakfast, i didn't enjoy it that much, but it was at a good price and I was rushing so I might have missed some of the...

The hotel is in an ideal location in a fairly quiet street in the city centre. Very convenient for shops, railway, metro and central Rotterdam attractions. The decor is a bit tired and rooms are not of luxury standard but are clean and functional. Breakfast is generous with very good coffee and decent selection of ham cheese bread etc.

I stayed here for a couple of days with a few friends in 2014 and it wasn't a great experience. We had to change rooms one of the nights and we weren't staying all together in the same rooms. I left behind a pair of shoes in one of the rooms and when I contacted the hotel about it they...

Stayed at the Grand in August, 2015. The hotel is a medium-low budget hotel with small yet comfortable rooms and a friendly and cooperative front-desk. The buffet breakfast is good and the hotel's location is ideal if you intend to walk around in the city. It's good value for money if you are travelling on a medium-low budget and for...

Food wasn't good preferably dobby take breakfast and just get something elsewhere. I found a bedbug. It isn't worth the saving 🆚 hotel quality. But location is very good about 5 min walk to the train station
