“Clean Manhattan feel, great romantic getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

My husband and I booked this hotel as a romantic weekend getaway. We found the hotel staff incredibly helpful and accomodating. We booked a regular room, which we found clean, spacious, and elegant, but got upgraded to a suite our second night, giving us a more varied taste of what the hotel has to offer. The suite had a view of downtown Rotterdam that was actually more exciting than we found the city itself. Both rooms had great linens and well-kept bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was also a treat. What it lacked in flavor it made up for in variety and the panoramic windows flooding the room with morning light provided a relaxed ambiance.

The hotel is nice and neat, everyday the rooms was clean and taken care off.
Despite this a noticed several times, while walking though the hallway, a lot of tension between the ladies cleaning the rooms and the woman controlling.
One of the housekeeping ladies just cleaned a room and one of the supervisors was not content and totally messed up the room telling the woman to do it all over again. As a client I am not very fond of such drama, people looking down on other peoples work and slaving them arround.

I also left some for the housekeeping lady as a thanks for the service of keeping my room nice and neat. When I asked if she recieved the gift she claimd not to have recieved any.

The dishounesty and disrespect gave me an unpleasant feeling during my stay.
I prefere things quite and respectfull, especially when I stay in the hotel to come to peace.

We spent two nights here on the way to Eindhoven for Dutch Design Week. On check-in, the receptionist recommended we upgrade to the Executive Floor... a great suggestion. For 25 Euros more we had access to a lounge with coffee, cookies and fruit during the day and wine and beer in the evening.

The room was large with a fabulous view, nicely furnished and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was huge and the included toiletries were very nice. It is a short walk from the train station, although rather confusing with all the current construction for the new train station.

We had dinner in the restaurant our second night and were very disappointed. The food was barely average, service was extremely slow and one of our side dishes never showed up. At least the service was friendly.

I would definitely stay here again, but eat across the street at Engels.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the executive floor.

In general very good, but some minuses are there.
There should be pool to have 5 stars. Breakfast is not so good as it should be in 5 stars hotel.

But still most probably it is the best hotel in Rotterdam as value for money.

Quite often as I exit the Rotterdam Central station, I see the Manhattan Hotel right in front of me and I can’t help wonder how it is like to enjoy a night there. There is something about the grandeur of the building, the stylish people in the lounge, and the glass entrance.

For my girlfriend’s 25th birthday who shares the love of the better things in life every now and then; I decided to gift her a night at the Presidential Suite of the Manhattan Hotel. An excellent and recommendable investment to all couples out there.

We were treated with smiles upon entering the hotel and all was arranged quickly. We took the elevator up to the 11th floor and walked through the purple hallway to room 1112. One of the best moments is when you enter the room and are overwhelmed by the size of it all. So big you don’t even have to get down to the gym for your routine joggings. It took us time to comprehend where we were. It’s all in the details, the cookies, kiwis, chocolates and much more waiting for you, only to be surprised by room service with a special welcoming gift. The “illy” coffee machine is brilliant, makes you feel like a barista in Milan. Good jazz cd’s with 3 different sound systems fill the room with even more ambiance. Half of the suite is windows providing direct sunlight and a great horizon seeing as far as the city Delft.

I have not sat on anything that’s not comfortable from blue couches to leather office chairs. In the shower, we particularly liked the Zenology shower products that have a great smell. The telephone next to the toilet was funny.

The best thing is the bed, period. The matrass is so comfortable, it makes you look forward coming back home from your night out.

Breakfast was the icing on the cake, a buffet of English & French breakfast in addition to fruits, cereals and juices. A piece of smoked salmon on a toast with fruits is definitely a good way to start your day. Staff “Marije” was alert to our needs, refilling our cups with thee or coffee and bringing new cutlery.

All in all a very positive stay for the both of us, one that will be cherished forever.

A group of four, we stayed at the Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam in early September prior to embarking ship for a Baltic cruise. This is a great hotel in terms of location, facilities and service and we would unhesitatingly recommend it to friends and fellow travellers.
The Manhattan is located across a huge plaza fronting the Central Station but currently it is quite challenging to navigate the short walk over due to massive construction works in progress. Hint: call the hotel from the station and a porter will be sent to assist with luggage.
The staff at Reception, Guest Services and at the restaurant La Brasserie are outstanding - unfailingly courteous, friendly and helpful and most attentive to guests' needs and requests.
The rooms are lovely, very spacious by European standards, well-appointed and well-maintained with marble bathrooms supplied with fine toiletries. The restaurant serves high quality cuisine and offers a daily prix fixe dinner which is very good value. The buffet breakfast provides extensive choice including a great variety of fresh fruit.
Overall, we were highly impressed with our stay at the Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam and would without reservation rate it the best place to stay in Rotterdam.
