The Grand Central Hotel is central but certainly not grand! The price for this centrally located hotel is fantastic but there is definitely a trade-off of quality for the price. The check-in time was advertised as 2.00pm and I was not able to get into the room until after 3.30pm. Towels were not available until after 5.00pm! The bathroom flooded... More

Before visiting the hotel I had read many negative reviews about it and was prepared for unpleasant visit. That ended up being unnecessary. The bed was comfortable and the room was tidy and peaceful. No signs of bedbugs at all after all the scary comments on the websites. TV was nice and the wifi worked ok. The staff was really... More

I stayed in this hotel fortunately for one night. The hotel is a cheap hotel so I expected a no frills hotel which is what it was. Very out dated furniture, bathroom, etc. The staff were friendly and did allow us to check in early at no extra cost. HOWEVER, a few hours after checking out at the hotel I... More

I have spent 3 days in the Grand Central Hotel, although the room was quite basic and old fashioned our breakfast was very nice and the price for a triple room was quite attractive. There was no wifi in the rooms but PCs in the lobby. Great location at the Coolsingel and a walking distance to the Central train station.

For those seeking a budget hotel right in the middle of Rotterdam, you could do worse than the Grand Hotel. It is opposite the Hilton, whicih suited me, as I was attending a conference being held at the Hilton, but did not want to pay Hilton prices. All I wanted was a room with a comfortable bed and a shower/WC.... More
