The cubes are surprisingly built with regular room inside. They were designed to interconnect on conical edges. Decorative coloring outside appeals visitors

An architect had a dream! Worth the visit. Designed for efficiency. Part is a youth hostel. Part condos. Does not open until 11AM.

Yes we were intrigued from the outside and our friends said you can visit inside, so off we went. I agree with some of the others reviews, 3 euros for such a quick visit was not great value. One page on the wall with some information that was written so long ago, was completely out of date. It was very... More

After looking at the houses from the outside, I could not help paying 3 Euros to have a look inside. Nothing special inside, a house that needed some work here and there, but strangely fascinating at the same time, worth 3 Euros to see inside

Very steep climb to get in, living room, kitchen on first floor, another steep staircase to the second floor, 1 double bedroom, small study and bathroom, top floor like an indoor terrace. Very weird sensation, as your balance gets totally thrown out. Could not live there and was glad to be back in the open.

Close to,the city center, and close to the old harbor you will find this Cube houses in Rotterdam. They are on the way if you explore the city center by walking. They are very interesting to see, to walk all around them and of course go and walk also inside the complex. If you like to spend 4,00 Euro, you... More

Just had to go in as the architecture of these buildings is just so weird. However the show cube was not really worth the money as it was a bit grotty and tiny. Still, the building themselves are fascinating and worth seeing, so I guess, once your imagination is captured, you just have to see inside one.

The Cube houses might be a big architectural thing, it was overpriced to get into it as it's TINY and actually NOT in a good shape. It's like the inhabitant just left all of his weird Fantasy miniature dolls and his 80ies taste in wall colours mixed with actual design stuff. It was, well, just odd. Not worth it, have... More
