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 Sleeping area of room was great size and lovely however bathroom was seriously outdated!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.

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
