This is a very comfortable and modern hotel that is close to Rotterdam/The Hague airport, and not too far from downtown Rotterdam. Its architecture wins me over every single time because it lets so much light in, besides the really high ceiling. The restaurant is good, but the manager and staff are fantastic! What helpful people! The rooms are spaceous,... More

The rooms were very clean, housekeeping staff were very friendly. The room was clean and nice and I had everything that I needed. I tried the room service a few times, the food came quickly and was very nice. The only negatives were that the internet didn't work sometimes and the complimentary airport shuttle wasn't working on the day I... More

I gave this hotel a good rating in a review published in December 2012. Have stayed there on several occasions since then, but it is no longer my first choice, and I am being kind when I give it an average rating since it is borderline "Poor". The hotel is getting a bit run down, the furniture and fittings aging... More

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
