Booked a studio apartment for 4 nights for visit to run the Rotterdam marathon. Location was excellent, both for marathon (very close to start & finish), plus sightseeing and shopping as apartment is very central. Our apartment was on 5th floor (lowest floor with apartments), and was spotless. The appliances were in mint condition and didn;t seem to have been... More

I tried to book the apartment for a week but because of credit card problem, reservation could not be processed, they cancelled it. In a booking.com mentioned that credit card just only for guarantee not payment. I don't know if they tried to deducted from my credit card the same amount as they mentioned guarantee. They said that we could... More

Simply perfect ... It's almost everything I want to say ... Family trip, 2 adults and a child of 6. We stayed in an Executive Apartment, on 15 floor, for 5 days. We extended our stay, just did not want to goo home:-) Located right in the center, with shops and restaurants - literally - on the doorstep. There is... More

Also tired of cleaning ladies knocking on your door at 10 o’clock in the morning, or worse, barging into your room, the bed, as nice as it is, never as comfy as your own, hurrying to have some breakfast after a late night in town, returning to your room for some privacy (and the bathroom)….to find …again, the cleaning lady!...

Wow... Did anybody ever tell you you should write for a (travel) magazine...? It's great that you skip the part about what's actually offered, and go straight to explaining readers how you feel and what kind of experience you had. You nailed it. And so did we, I dare to say... :) Thank you for a lovely review. This is... More

Suitable for short as well as longer stays. The apartments are a great solution for a family with older children. A living room is so much more convenient than two (smaller) hotel rooms. With both metro and trams within short walking distance this is a perfect city-center location for exploring Rotterdam. Keep in mind that there is no 24 hour... More

We spent two nights in Rotterdam and can't say enough positive about this property. There is a parking garage under the building which is very convenient. The building is located right in the heart of downtown Rotterdam within walking distance to every major sight. The apartment had two bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. The unit had free WiFi. Everything is...

Good morning, Thank you for a positive review! Partially due to your remark, we have decided to be open during certain hours in the weekend. So hopefully guests who need us, will be able to find us also in the weekends. We are aware of the amenities "issue". Since there is no daily Housekeeping it is difficult to monitor the... More

We stayed here for a week in late September 2013. The place had not been open for long so our apartment on the 13th Floor was still relatively new. It was a great location, right above the shopping plaza in the middle of Rotterdam. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows made for spectacular views. The apartment was full furnished with access to...

The beds are very comfortable and there are 19 floors so there are almost always rooms. The nearest metro stop is stadhuis on the D and E lines. The nearest NS stop is rotterdam centraal serving sprinter trains to amsterdam bijlmer arena and the fura high speed line

We stayed a couple of nights in an upgraded studio at these apartments. It's not a hotel but in my opinion it's better! It is very private and the space and facilities are great. Please open more in different cities! Only suggestion for improvement would be a freezer compartment for ice cubes.
