I am a single traveller on my way home from work - transitting via Amsterdam and decided to visit Rotterdam for 1.5 days.
The objective was to find a cheap place to sleep in Rotterdam (6 - 8 hours) since I'll be touring Rotterdam most of the time from sun up till sun down. I am happy to say that I've met my objective at Turkuaz for €45 per night. (single room). Nothing special with the room set-up, but then what do you expect for the cheap price anyway. Check-in was easy. The front desk lady was OK and helpful. The single room is small as expected - but, suitable for my purpose. The room was clean - but with old furnitures and wooden floor. There was a shower in my room - small but serve the prupose. I checked in, leave some stuff in the room and then went out visiting the city. came back to hotel just to sleep as I was exhausted after a full day activity. I was on the 1st floor - no serious noise. Able to sleep soundly.
They have free WiFi if you bring your laptop. If not, there's a desktop downstairs where you can check your email etc.
The breakfast was basic. Had cereal, bread, cheese, yogurt and tea. Nothing fancy but I'm OK with it. Checked out after breakfast and went for some more sight seeing before heading back to Schiphol.
The hotel is about 7 - 10 minutes walk from the Central Station. Still quiet a distance from most of the tourist attractions. I love to walk. So, I can tell you that it's about 30 mins walk to the Euromast. 40mins walk to the waterfront. 20mins walk to Stadhuis, museums etc in city center.
Overall, I am satisfied with the stay at Turkuaz.
Recommend this hotel for: budget travellers, traveller who only needs a place to sleep without worrying about fancy stuff.
