“Good Solid Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I stayed at the Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam on a weekend between 2 business trips.

I arrived around 2pm on Saturday and check-in was prompt and no trouble (despite being a bit early for check-in). In October there was construction all around the hotel, but there was ample space to leave the car in front of the hotel and have the concierge drive it down to the parking (nice touch).

I was on the business floor and the room was clean, spacious and with convenient amenities. The business floor lounge, on the other hand was a bit cramped and had little choice in terms of refreshments and snacks.

On the Sunday I asked if I could keep the room longer and I was told that I could keep it for as long as I wanted (mximum 6pm) for a fee of 10 Euros for each hour. That is one of the greatest ideas I have ever stumbled upon in a hotel.

Allround a good solid and conveniently located hotel, but expensive.

This is a very nice hotel, with a warm and welcoming lobby, staff were friendly and the rooms are quite nice with a great turndown service in the evening which is always nice to come back to each night. Breakfast is wonderful with an upscale feel, the central railroad station is close and there are a few good restaurants in close proximity

Had a super stay in this hotel. Very comfortable rooms and helpful and friendly staff. Location in the Center of Rotterdam was very convenient: 3 Minutes walk from Central Railway Station, Underground and most tramlines. Beautyful view from the room of the skyline of Rotterdam Harbour. We were lucky with a free upgrade when we arrived. Only negative was that the windows don't open, not even a little bit. Room was very stuffy the first night. Second night we switched on the airco, which made the room more comfortable. Airco reacts very slow, but is very good once set properly. Bathrooms well equiped, though a little dark.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view

This hotel is ideally situated across from the railway station. P&O Ferrys transport drops passengers off at the station so it is perfect for an extra night on your mini break.

The views of the city from the bedrooms are excellent and it is worth upgrading to an executive room to get access to the executive lounge with free snacks and beverages.

Will stay hear again

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor to get the best vew

I stayed at the Hotel as had a professional exam in Rotterdam. It was expensive but has all the style and sophistication that a 5 start hotel should have. Staff were first class, room was very pleasant and well appointed. Location is excellent - just across the way from the train station. All in all, a lovely 5 star experience.

I came to Rotterdam last February and stayed at the Atlanta which was fine, but not great. I wish the Manhattan had not been sold out at that time as it's clearly a superior hotel. The touches are all modern and very tasteful. The hotel is also right across from Central Station, making it very convenient.
