A wonderful bed and breakfast in a quiet part of Rotterdam. A bit far from the city center but quite accessible by tram. The nearest tram stop is less than 5 minutes away from Het Hemelrijk. I highly recommend you purchase a Rotterdam Welcome Card to make it easier to get around. The bed & breakfast in itself is special. The colors and ambience of the place are wonderfully sweet & cozy. Our stay was made even more special by Johan's personal touch. A great guy, he made us feel as if we were visiting an old friend despite the fact that we had never met him until the day we arrived at his doorstep. The stairs are a bit steep but Johan was kind enough to help us with our luggage. The breakfast was delicious! He asked us what we wanted to eat, we said,just surprise us. And he did! Each day was different and delicious so we looked forward to coming down to breakfast each day. The rooms were rustic, cozy,and clean. Good wifi internet access. And do try the restaurant across the street named Branco which Johan recommended. Johan says Hemelrijk means heavenly place and it truly is.
