If you normally avoid city-centre hotels because they seem impersonal and overpriced, or because there is no easy parking available, the van Walsum is for you. I particularly like this hotel, especially the room on the second floor with a terrace. I think this hotel is great value for money and will make a point of staying here when in... More

This hotel is ideally located near the center of Rotterdam and near countless shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, near the Tram, and other local hot spots. We typically toured on foot or on the tram and found everything convenient. The hotel has breakfast and snacks and a bar in the lobby for those late evening night caps or pre-evening libation....

Stopped here a couple of times but this my first review. Hotel was pretty decent. we were given a nice room with balcony looking out the front. Was brilliant because we could sit on the balcony and have a cigarette if we wanted. I also thought we had free parking booking through trip advisor but the voucher had actually ran... More

This hotel is a little bit out of the main centre on a quiet side street. However, it's only a short walk to the heart of the city. We booked a double and a triple room, both a very good size, clean and comfy. There was free wifi, tea and coffee making facilities. The beds were very comfortable and there... More

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel van Walsum. While it's not right in the middle of the bustling city, we found the location to be ideal on a quieter street. Rotterdam is quite small and walkable anyways, so we found it no problem at all to walk everywhere we needed to go. The rooms were a lot larger than... More

My wife and I traveld to Rotterdam for the Summer Carnaval street parade and Battle of the Drums on a spur of the moment weekend getaway. With nly three days notice we were able to secure a night at the Hotel van Walsum with what felt like a very good rate. Even after arriving I still think the rate was... More

Hotel van Walsom is a cosy small hotel with friendly and helpful personnel. I recommend this both for business and leisure travellers but maybe not for those who want to have place full of stuffed shirt people.

Very nice room, spacious for Holland patterns, for a good price. There was also a good breakfast buffet. wi-fi was free, with excellent speed, and no forms to fill or 24 hours only passwords. Hotel street/lobby door only opens on bell ring.

I had 4 nights at the hotel. It is on a fairly quiet street near some busy ones, so in a good spot. My single room was ok, big enough for just me, and had two single beds in it with an en-suite bathroom. The view out of the back window was over the hotel's small but tidy patio and... More

I spent one night at hotel Van Walsum. Normally I go to another hotel in Rotterdam, but as that one was fully booked, I had to look for a different one. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great. I was a bit disappointed by the room size, single person bed. The good thing about the room was... More
