The Grand Hotel Centraal Rotterdam is a decent functional hotel- it has satisfactory to good standards of accomodation, although it needs some redecoration. The room was as described, acceptably clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and the wi fi and TV worked well. There were coffee and tea making supplies in the room. The hotel is in a...

This hotel was recommended by a ferry company after missing our ferry. We had booked a triple room, however when we turned up we were given a family room as no triple rooms were left. When we entered the lift everything looked like it belonged in the 1950's and not in a cool retro way. Anyway when we entered the... More

This advertised hotel looks more like a hostel than a hotel the rooms are awful and the service is very lacking the breakfast is nothing special which at €12.50 is not value for money! We won't be coming back and I would suggest others do the same! The room had no cups or towels and was dirty so on arrival... More

Let's start with the positive: The breakfast is really good and the location even better. But do not let the pictures fool you. This is a very old hotel with smelly rooms and even smellier hallways. Paint falling down from the ceiling and very weird stains on the carpet in the room and hallways. Housekeeping did not get to cleaning... More

I stayed at the hotel for one week in AUG.2014. The hotel is old and needs renovation. Cleanliness is not the best part. BUT it is at an excellent location (opposite Hilton, Holiday Inn, next to City Hall), has very good breakfast and it is very cheap. If you want a room to sleep in the city center is ideal.... More

The hotel is very oldfasion. Staff was very helpfull. When we arrived the toilet didn't work, and they fixed it immediately. The breakfast was excellent. The room is fairly big. It is located near main railway station. The wifi didnt work in rooms, only in hallway.

The location of the hotel was good, near the railwaystation of Rotterdam (a 10 min. walk). The room (single) was rather small, but was adequate with comfort and a single bed. View from the room was bad (I just saw the back side of another building). The buffet breakfast was excellent and the staff was friendly.

Pictures on website looked great...reality was disappointing. Booked a double bed room. When checked in was given a 3 person room with all single beds ( all 3 beds looked like they had been made in 30 secs), annoyed but more annoyed at the fact that the shower was dirty and the toilet still had s**t splattered under the seat....

Hotel was in good location. Sleeping area of room was great size and lovely however bathroom was seriously outdated! We had family in another room and their toilet was broken and wouldn't flush. They did get some money back for this and staff were apologetic. Breakfast was buffet style and was nice.
