We stayed in this hotel because we visited The North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam. We had a spacious junior suite, which was good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. After arrival we had lunch on the nice terrace, the quality of the food was good. The breakfast next day was sufficient and average. This hotel can be recommended... More

The hotel by itself is quite good. Modern architecture, everything is convenient. The furniture is need to be changed slightly. The breakfast was too expensive for my opinion - 17,5 euro for sausages, omelets, some ham and cheese? Too less i think. And the most important - about location. It's situated close to rhe zoo. So, you could easily spend... More

The Van de Valk Hotel Rotterdam-Blijdorp is conveniently located to access the airport and central station by public transport. It's also right next door to the Zoo. The hotel is clean, neat and the king size bed is huge. It's a little isolated, no cafes, etc for a mile or more, so it's eating in the restaurant, or catch the... More

We stayed for 9 nights on a hockey tour and the hotel staff did everything they could to help us. They provided early breakfasts, additional towels and were the friendliest staff we have ever come across in a hotel of that size. Raymondo, in particular, helped us with directions to local places and kept smiling throughout! Rooms were very well... More

I was hesitant when I booked this hotel, given the average score from Trip advisor's reviews. In the end I was happy we stayed there. Positives: price (very good for Rotterdam), proximity to city centre, free parking, free drinks at our arrival (we had an excellent wine from the bar), late breakfast (till 11am), large size of the room, excellent...

Pleasant hotel not too far from the center with ample,free, parking - an important consideration where city center parking has become frightfully expensive. If you're only in town for a short time 24-48 hours an OV card is not necessarily a viable option because of the initial fixed cost. Our room was spacious and comfortable and more than acceptable, although... More

Bit dated, but still clean enough. Some stains on carpet, but spotless bathroom. Room didn't cool below 23 degrees, while outside it was much cooler. Dinner not very good. Breakfast is nice. Especially the fresh rolls, which were extraordinary. Stayed in spacious suite, with seperate living room, toilet, bathroom and bedroom. View on the Blijdorp zoo. Free parking.

Nice bed, very comfy. It was far too hot though and I tossed and turned all night. Bathroom was nice. In all it was quite a stylish, trendy hotel. The restaurant let it down or maybe it was my choice of the venison, it was ok but not what i was expecting. Breakfast was average, nothing special. i guess if... More

Van der Valk Hotels do seem to be a bit of a Dutch secret. They are usually just out of town with lots of free parking, and lots of space in the quite stylish reception/lobby areas and super-clean rooms. I have stayed here 4 times and each time the room has been pleasant & spacious. This time I went for... More
