During my business trip to Rotterdam, I stayed at this hotel just one night away from busy city. It is located in the suburban area almost in the middle of quiet natural wilderness. This noise-free surroundings gave me even more comfort. Breakfast is served like meals cooked at home. Warm and fresh! Next year, when I organize a convention in... More

Place needs better decoration. Not cosy at all. Staff friendly. Illy cappuccino not special. Staff needs better milk frothing instructions. 12-uurtje was surprisingly good. Nice celery root soup with Chorizo. Very good slice artisanal bread with fresh smoked salmon and local Croquet Freshly squeezed orange juice. So good lunch.

I have stayed in many hotels through the years with my dogs..but this was one of the most dog-friendly hotels i have ever visited.Even though the room was not as quiet as i expected due to noisy neighbors the reception resolved it quite quickly.

Room facilities good and spacious with general hotel staff friendly. Breakfast selection good but Dinner was exceptional. There is a 'Chefs Surprise' option with the facility to express any food allergies/dislikes. Waiting staff excellent. My only one concern was the Bar where numbers of staff are sufficient but somewhat inattentive and one barman in particular who seemed very 'tip' oriented... More

The rooms are spacious and tidy. The food was a bit basic for lunch, the staff were friendly enough. €15 in a taxi to Rotterdam central. So the €105 a room is a little high for its location. No mini bar in room or iron. Iron is essential if you travel for business meetings. Sadly lacking in this hotel

We were happy to have this hotel during our rainy stay in the NL! Rooms are nice, staff pleasant and professional, the breakfast very good. We liked the "atrium" area where we could enjoy a coffee after the breakfast. I would recommend

the hotel is good, clean, the staff very professional. Full breakfast down to pancakes and poffertjes (small Dutch pancakes), very good. Fast wifi. Only minus point is the beds, we and our friends all found them too soft or too hard. Old, thus. Pity, because with new beds it would be all-round very good.

Hotel located abit out of the center of Rotterdam yet easy to reach by bike or car. The hotel itself has friendly and helpful staff that answer your questions immediately. The design is modern and also clean everywhere. Rooms are spacious and designed in a modern way. What i liked alot was the extensive breakfast buffet which was also delicious.... More
