This hotel is horrible!!! The room was stinking, there was huge humidity, toilet flush didn't work, windows were broken and downstairs was very loud disco till 5 o'clock! However, the most horrible is that I have been bitten by bed bugs! I have more than 50 bites... This hotel should be immediately closed!

Despite the mixed reviews I have read about this hotel, our stay was pleasant. My family and I had 2 rooms and stayed 1 night. The hotel is in a great location and an easy walk from Rotterdam Central station. There are some great restaurants and shopping in the area. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful and when... More

A nice Comfortable bed, clean sheets. Friendly and helpful staff. Good shower and hot running water. Modern TV. Excellent location. Would definitely stay here again. For what we paid (£36 pn) it's a bargain.

We stayed in this hotel for 8 days in late December and came here on Business. We just took the normal IC train from Schiphol airport of Amsterdam to Rotterdam Central station ( around travel time of 45 minutes ) and the hotel is just 7-8 minutes' walk. The check-in process was quick and receptionists were helpful and friendly. They... More

My partner and I visited this hotel in December on a city break. We were meant to go to Bruges however a port strike in Zebrugge changed our plans. We wanted a hotel which was central and booked this one as some of the reviews were not too bad. We arrived mid morning and asked if we could leave our... More

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
