We stayed in this hotel for two nights in August. We came by car, therefore we reserved the garage in advance. Hotel is located almost in centre of Rotterdam, consequently the garage is almost a must, while there are only payable parking spaces in front of the hotel and nearby streets. It is not cheap at all(15€ a night), but a safe place to put a car in. It is although rather inconvenient, very narrow, also narrow spaces and many turns. hotel itself exist from two buildings, the old one( in which we were staying) from the beginning of the 20th century and the newer one from the 80's. The old one has very narrow wooden stairways, but also the elevators. Walls are very thin, you can hear the neighbour using the toilet etc. But we got lucky, we got namely small room on second floor, but it had a view of the Rotterdam downtown and it also had a bay window. The room was also very bright, overlooked also on the ver busy city street( six car lanes, two tram tracks and sirens wailing all the time), but I was very tired, so I did not have any problems with sleeping. bathroom was very small, tired, had some problems with water pressure and was made nearly out of closet. Wireless internet (free of charge) worked also in the room, but with very bad signal. Breakfast was good, with broad variaty of food, but the dinning room was very crowded. Hotel also has its own restaurant, but it works only on weekdays.
As i mentioned, hotel is situated about 500m from city center and shopping streets, you don't need any public transport, but the city itself is nothing special,except if you are fan of "modern" architecture and many building sites. Seems like some industrial capital of eastern Europe with many immigrants.
All in all it was a good hotel for a very fair price, especially for Holland. But more like a three star hotel in my eyes.
