My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is right opposite the Kralingen Campus of Erasmus University and within walking distance of the recreational area of Kralingse Bos. Downtown Rotterdam is about 10 min. by car and 20-25 min. by bike. Hotel was clean, room was appropriately equipped for a business hotel, staff was friendly.... More

Dear K-R-BH, Thank you for submitting your review of our hotel, we are pleased to hear you have had an enjoyable stay. Now that summer is here, another great way to go to the city center of Rotterdam is by water taxi. A water taxi stop is closeby the hotel and reservations can be made at the reception. Thank you...

This is a pleasant, nicely furnished hotel that is just a ten minute walk from the Kralingse Zoom station. We were travelling as a family of four, and the room had already by set up upon our arrival - a double bed, and a turned down sofa bed (2 singles) for the kids. The room was a bit small, but...

Clear, nice hotel. Close to the highway with a good resturant. The hotel says Its Services are open 24/7. The rooms pics placed online look a bit nice than in reality but over all it's a good quality hotel. The hotel staff was very nice and the overall atmosphere is nice as well.

Very quiet district, but near the motorway A16. A 7 minute walk to the tram station (Erasmus University or Oude Plantage). Take tram 7, 21 or 24 to get to downtown Rotterdam or Central Station. Very clean rooms, when checking in we upgraded our room to executive, which all the drinks in the minibar are free of charge.

Very nice standard, delicious breakfast with plenty of choice, fresh fruits, pancakes etc. Remote from city center but practically on campus. Well communicated with the city with trams, trains or by beautiful walk along the water.
