3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

We booked this as part of a package, including a visit to the ABN-AMRO Tennis Tournament. There was a problem which resulted in my booking being cancelled, which made me really very cross. However, the hotel managed to re-book my package and the manager both upgraded us to a better room and invited us to the Bilderberg hospitality suite at the tournament.

Good points: the hotel is well located in the centre of the city. The upgraded room was excellent. I'd recommend always having a room in the "Tower" which is much newer than the rest of the hotel.

Poor points: I can't recommend taking one of the weekend packages. In particular the only restaurant open during the weekend was rather dingy and served only a buffet dinner. Moreover, the bar in the evening was packed and the service consequently slow and poor.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the relatively new "Tower"

Hotel was very nice. Situated near Rotterdam Train Station, made it a bonus making it easily accessible for public transport. Also shops (Clothes/Food/Convenience) Were all just a 5 minute walk away from the hotel. The Staff were very friendly; very pleasant and welcoming.
Breakfast was also nice; Buffet Breakfast with the usual you could imagine. Although never used the gym facilities, we checked it out on our arrival. Was small but gym has everything whats needed (including a Sauna) so thats a bonus.
Only Thing I would say about this hotel is that their Televisions are quite old. For us staying there, this meantunable to connect any type of Media (Camera/Video Game/Pc) wasn't possible so was suprised at this as lower star hotels usually have more modern tv's.
Apart from that it was great. Situated right outside for the Rotterdam Carnival (and i mean literally outside). will be staying here next year same time :D

Room Tip: If looking to get a quiet night in try to avoid booking around Carnival time

Hotel is in a good location near to the main shopping and eating area, and close to the station. The reception staff gave us a very hard sell about upgading our room, suggesting that we may be unhappy with the room we had booked, but discouraging us from going to see it first. After a negotiation on the price we did upgrade and our room was very nice, spacious and very high up in a really quiet part of the hotel. So maybe he was doing us a favour afterall. Breakfast was good and regularly refreshed.

Rotterdam seems a little edgy - my husband got propositioned walking between the station and the hotel! But the city itself is lively and has a lot to offer, lots of really good restaurants particularly nice ones in some of the old marinas.

I live in rotterdam but my parents came to see us last month when we moved houses. The location is perfect, in front of metro eendrachtsplein,city center,nightlife and great restaurants. quick check in- check out. The rooms are basic but comfortable. No room service and not much service overall. Balcony was a good idea but it was locked. I went to reception where they told me it was not possible as they do not use keys anymore so told me to go try again! I called them and asked for someone to have a look. 15 mins later someone came and told me ' You need a key.' She said she would be right back but came back later. When I tried it, the door wouldnt open! I am not even sure it was the right key.At the end we surrendered! 145 euros without breakfast is way too expensive for what it is.

This hotel definitely doesn't deserve it's 4-star rating. The rooms are cramped and dingy and have neither character nor elegance. The hotel nickels and dimes you for everything. A bottle of water at the bar is outrageously expensive, and so is breakfast. I was expecting a lot more. The one thing it has going for it is it's location, which is right near the museums and the shopping district. Also, the staff are very nice and helpful.
