“Good business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I stayed here with some colleagues and it is a new, modern (maybe a design) hotel. The rooms are very big with flat screen TV and free WLAN. Big ensuite facility equipped with tub and shower but no heating. Also in the room no "normal" heating with radiators but via air condition. The beds are not so brilliant; only 90 cm width and quite smooth mattress. The restaurant is very good with a big variation of meals especially seafood. Take care if you order a soup as starter: the French onion soup of my colleagues was nearly cold. So order a hot soup. Very good breakfast (also English breakfast available) with a very good coffee for a hotel.

Stayed at the Van Der Valk for a week on business and I was very impressed indeed. This hotel has everything, the rooms are first class, large and roomy and spotless. The food is fantastic and the staff very helpful and friendly.

Quick check in on arrival from very friendly staff who made sure everything was covered.

Free wireless in every room and in the looby / bar area and connection time via KPN is instant. There lobby area is excellent for sitting after breakfast or after work, having a drink and checking mail etc.

The selection of food on offer at breakfast was fantastic - everything anyone could want. Evening menu also superb and the chef(s) are very good.

Only one small issue with the hotel was its a bit out of the way. There is nowhere within walking distance and if you decide to go for a walk beware as cyclists and passing cars will soon warn you about walking on the cycle paths...I found this hard to understand as there are no sidewalks - only cycle paths...?

All in all a fabulous hotel which i would definatlely use again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

We went to this hotel as there was an event at Ahoy which was only 10 minutes drive from the hotel. All staff were so friendly and helpful! We checked in, no dramas.

Room very clean, good size, large bathroom. Massive bath and best shower ever! Be warned, no kettle in the room! There is a small fridge though that we stocked with some bottled water.

We ate in the hotel one night and the food was very good and reasonably priced, about 15€ for a main course. Breakfast was great! (No english teabags though) but large range of fruit teas, coffees, orange juice. Lots of selection of meats, cheeses, pastries, eggs, cooked foods, cereals.

Barendrecht train station is about a 15-18€ taxi ride, train to Amsterdam from Barendrecht is about 30€ return. Rotterdam station is a bit further about a 30€ taxi ride.

Overall a great hotel and will be back next year!

...been staying there for a couple times now and must say it's neat, clean and good for a good nights sleep. Can only recommend for biz travel though.
Little tip: on the second floor in the inside area there are a couple vending machines for drinks and snacks like chips/crisps, Snickers and so on. Minibar in room was empty...

Food as always excellent. Breakfast with big variety, always fresh. Restaurant is superb! Always have the Caesars Salad with Shrimps there, excellent. Excellent Steaks too I am told by biz partners. No cherry in apple sauce...what the heck Van der Valck??? :) ;)

I have visited several Van der Valk hotels in Holland and the standards are always very high. The rooms are spacious and bright. Bathroom is spacious and very clean. Free wifi is always available and of very good quality. The restaurant and breakfast is very good even though the waiter we found was a little "slow" !! I would reccomend both for holiday and for business.

Good rooms with a free mini-bar--a real contrast to the usual mini bar rip offs.

The breakfast was super. Not much more to say. Very content with this hotel and the price was very good at €105 per room per night.

We used it for overnight stay after a concert in Ahoy. Rooms are clean, good sized, bathroom was good size with with walk-in shower, bath of good length. Very friendly reception.
Despite it is located at a very busy highway no traffic sound in the room.
Easy to reach Ahoy by car just in 6 minutes.
Food and beverages are excellent and at a very good price value. The restaurant was loaded with people, but the service was still very friendly and impeccable.
