I had an executive room and stayed there for a convention taking place on the Erasmus campus. My room had a beautiful view of the downtown area. It was quite comfortable and the adjustable temperature ensured that I had a great stay (it was raining and cool for a while then it got hot). The receptionist took her time checking... More

Even though it's located out of the city center, there are bus and metro stations nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. When we got to the room, it was even better than expected. Super clean, nice view of the Erasmusbrug and Rotterdam center in the distance. The bathroom was great as well and we're... More

Room was clean, wifi was great even on 10th floor, food good, bar with decent selection of drinks, staff friendly and knowledgeable. We were there for the North Sea jazz festival at the Ahoy centre and it is reasonably close by metro- which is around 10 minutes walk away.

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

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.
