Stayed here after a day at the zoo. If you are visiting the zoo then use the hotel car park, they give you a ticket to get out the following day saving 9euros. A pleasant hotel, stayed with my 20 year old daughter. Polite staff, on entering our room found it was a double bed. Went to reception to change... More

The clean lines and simplicity of the rooms were a surprise at first. I came to really enjoy this hotel. The beds were more comfortable than at home. One of my traveling companions said that she wanted to take this bed home with her! Yes, it is a bit out of the main downtown area, but I walked to town... More

A typical midscale European style hotel, clean, functional but basic. The room was spacious and bathroom functional but absolutely devoid of any character. The front desk staff were efficient and helpful on checking in,for restaurant reservations and taxi bookings. Breakfast is a buffet, manned and serviced by one employee, efficient and more than adequate, but don't expect any service or... More

It was just a overnight stay at Rotterdam airport. The stay was comfortable, large room, clean toilets, free internet with decent speed. There is a local bus 32 which takes to city center in about 20 minutes. The room given to me 339 faces the interior of the lounge. I prefer a outside view. So you cannot open the curtains... More

We stayed here one night prior to going on a cruise and were impressed. Our flight arrived early that morning, and the hotel staff graciously accommodated us by allowing us to check in at 9am rather than having to wait until that afternoon. The food was good as we had both dinner and breakfast there. For us it was a... More

This large modern hotel is in the middle of nowhere! We had friends who were very generous in picking us up, but otherwise we would have needed a car. However, the hotel was warm and comfortable (the weather was very wintery, so this was important). The public areas are attractive and well set out, although without a lot of character.... More

The rooms are large and spacious. The facilities like wifi, breakfast, parking etc. are good. The staff is very nice and cooperative. It is not very accessible and for food going out becomes an issue. Rotterdam Cetral is less than 10 min. On weekend you have a zoo next door. Worth trying it.

I spent a week in this hotel for a business trip. Facilities are good (better than average in the country), hotel is modern, with WIFI in the rooms. Service at the restaurant was very slow although the staff was very nice. Food was average but a bit expensive. Not within walking distance from city center, so better look for another... More
