I stayed in this hotel for two nights and I picked it for central location and price. The official pictures around don't really reflect reality: I imagine part of the hotel is renovated and therefore looking nice, but it's not all like that. Even though the pictures suggest that the spaces are fashionably 'classic', in truth they are simply decrepit.... More

Strange these sort of places still exist in 2015. Staff seemed pleasent and I suppose the location was ok. However the hotel was in serious need of some investment. I have not seen a bedroom so delapidated for years. All the communal areas were poor and the restaurant was just dirty. Not to be recommended.

Stayed for 2 nights in a single bed room. The bed was very comfortable and warm. The breakfast had a great variety of foods and the location was amazing! Right in the centre. The staff were generally lovely, one lady went up and beyond to help us. Very very good price for its location (it's opposite the Hilton). Bathroom quite... More

Located very central. Lovely staff. Clean beds. Socket in the bathroom wasn't workin but thats pretty much the only negative thing. Besides they didn't tell us straight away there is free breakfast included.

Nice Hostel in central Rotterdam, clean rooms and really comfy beds! Very helpful and friendly receptionistin. Good place to stay a couple of nights while visiting Rotterdam. It's not a huge city and you can pretty much walk everywhere from the Hostel.

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
