“Good hotel for business trips to Rotterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Easy to reach, more than enough parking space, close to Rotterdam. Good hotel for business travellers, but would not use it for leasure trips. Dinner is - as in most hotels - expensive and not that good. Rooms are recently overhauled and very good. Prices are reaonable, good value for your money. Staff is very friendly.

My third time of staying and always the same good standards.
Rooms are reasonably large and comfortable. I love the act that there is an inner door separating the room lobby from the bedrooms which practically eliminates the noise from the hallways. Beds are comfortable. Nice to have a kettle and choice of beverages.
Nice selection of chanels and languages on the TV.
Bathrooms are well lit with a decent hairdryer. Nice big shower with the all important adjustable head!
Food is very average I am afraid, and given the choice I would dine out. Breakfast is good, but not a vast selection if you are a fussy eater! Hot and cold options available.

This is a nice hotel with great food and very close to Nieuwland Station and Vlietland Hospital. Just be aware that breakfast is 18 Euros and even though you must sign in for it, they will charge it to your room everyday just the same. Upon check out you will have to go through a book of sign-in sheets in order to prove which days you did not have breakfast! Also, if you are staying on long business trips, it can be a hassle with their accounting system trying to check out every week (if you are wanting to get ahead on your expenses). I had the situation where I paid for the second week, and the transaction went through, but according to the manager (some days later), a new hold/reserve on my card did not process for the upcoming week? But he mistakenly stated that I had not paid for the previous week at all....even though I had an invoice from the front desk showing that I had paid. They could not tell by looking at the computer. Anyway, I dont understand why I wasn't made aware of the hold/reserve not processing at the time I made the payment! And then, why was it such a big problem after the fact, seeing as I already had paid for two weeks (I am a here on a business trip, not a rock and roll tour). I wanted to give it 3 starts for the problems I had at the front desk, but I have a feeling it is the best place to stay in Schiedam.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stayed here for a few nights in July. The room was clean and the bathroom was clean and well laid out. The bathroom had a lovely shower but no bath which wasn't a problem for us but may be an issue if you have a baby with you. The food at the hotel in the evenings was good with a fair variety. The breakfast buffet in the mornings was adequate but certainly not vast. Tea and coffee is self service out of a machine, there is no decaf available and all yoghurt, milk etc is dairy no soya or other alternatives available. The staff in the hotel were all very friendly and helpful especially the waiters in the dining room. The is an unheated outdoor pool which my children enjoyed but despite the bubble cover each night it was a bit chilly for me! The hotel is in a nice location outside of any main cities but very convenient to the motorway to get around.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room Firestone from reception. It was very quiet but the nearby stairwell didn't...
