If you're coming from Amsterdam Centraal, Rotterdam Centraal is like a breath of fresh air. Spacious, modern and clean, it's less confusing. The layout is pretty straightforward as it just goes end to end, so finding your platform is very easy. It has a lot of affordable eateries like Julia's Cucina Italia, Burger King, Doner Company, HEMA, among others. But... More

Rotterdam Central Station is not directly to compare with Paris Central Station but it is well organized and easy to find information. There are, also, few shops and places to eat inside the station which makes the waiting hour bearable. The station is well connected to cities in Netherlands and Belgium which is very good. It was not possible to... More

The station with its lovely modern design has loads of shops and eateries but only one toilet! There is a very large screen TV and an interesting shadow man opposite it. Big square in front with trams at the side and empty space in front. Trains all on individual platforms. Very impressive and a lovely addition to the city.

Beautifully done and very comfortable station with lots of cafes, fast food and small shops. The train station is very-very long and unfortunately only one toilet for the whole station not in the middle, but at the very start. There is a tourist info centre where you can ask anything you like. They are very good at explaining. City maps... More

Having seen the new station while it was still being built a couple of years ago, it was nice to see the finished design on my most recent trip - very impressive... :) Spacious, with lots of light and doesn't feel crowded.

This brand new railway station is really worth the visit. It's a pleasant spacious station with a nice entrance hall which can facilitate festivities and performances like was the case last week with the grand opening of this new central station. The building of the entrance hall on the southern side is impressive. The roof of stainless steel reflects the... More

Newly refurbished Rotterdam Central Station, in addition to its stunning architectural design, is a very pleasant place to spend some time either while waiting for a train connection or just visiting for pleasure's sake or just passing by. The main hall with its acoustics is an excellent venue for concerts. Therefore, I hope there will be more that kind of... More

What a difference to enter Rotterdam through this new station. On the opening day my brother-in-law and I arrived in the morning before our King opened this new railway station. I loved the overview with stores, the incredible immense space you have now to walk around without bouncing against somebody else with the path, the great architecture of the whole... More
