“Excellent as usual!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This hotel is our favourite in Rotterdam and although we decided to try a budget hotel instead this time, we ended up at the Manhattan within an hour of arriving, so many thanks to the staff for accommodating us with a good price and their usual efficiency! If you're looking for a really comfortable base from which to explore, this is it. The beds are brilliant, the air conditioning is actually effective (see my other reviews), the rooms are spacious and clean and the staff courteous - a very civilised experience all round!

The hotel was very clean but it is in the middle of ugly building work which spoils the impression. Staff were very generally helpful and friendly. The major benefit of this hotel is the location it is right opposite the station where the bus from the airport stops and a few minutes walk away from the Metro which covers the city. We had booked an executive room and for over £200 per night I had expected perfection. There was no plug in the bath so arriving wet and cold we had to go and find a plug to have a bath from an unmanned reception. Room was standard modern corporate stye, very clean and a nice big bathroom. The breakfast was okay although we were seated at a table with no butter, tea bags or condiments so we had to go and take them from other tables, water from the tea is served in flasks which is too cold to make good tea. Location is as quiet as the grave and as we were 12 floors up there was no problem with noise.

Dear Delia P,

Thank you for staying with us at The Manhattan Hotel and taking some of your valuable time to share your thoughts. As I understand from your review we did not completely meet nor exceed your expectations during your stay, for which I truly apologize.

I am glad to learn that you value the location of the hotel, unfortunately the current surrounding are not as nice as they will be in spring 2014, luckily we have entered the final phase of the construction now.

With regards to the breakfast I can only say that your experience was clearly not as we envisage for our guests; neither is a missing bath plug. Your comments have been shared with the responsible department heads in order to improve these attention points.
I hope to be able to welcome you again in Rotterdam so we can show our true passion for hospitality, please contact me directly so I can take care of your reservation.

Best regards,

Youp Bimbergen – Guest Relations Manager

Public bus from Rotterdam airport to central station, walk across the street and your at the hotel.
Good restaurants in the area and walking to most attractions. Hotel feels new. Very accommodating staff. Large room and bath. Free wifi and even a lounge with free wine and
nibbles. We found a great price on the internet and it included everything. Breakfast was fresh and as much fruit, eggs, etc. as you could handle, They even made special eggs.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: Our room on the 10th floor was very quiet with good view.

First, the hotel is in the middle of big building site. I think they just finished building the main railway station that is across and continue to do some more work around. Eventhough we didnt hear anything in the hotel, it isn´t great impression. Plus, finding a way how to get to the hotel with a car was not that easy. Re car - parking in the hotel for 27 EUR per day :-(

But, the staff was very nice. Early check in and late check out was absolutely no problem. We came with our 7months old daughter. The receptionist has even offered that we could have breakfast in the room if it was easier for us because of the baby and they would wave the charges. That was very nice!

The room was nice and specious as well as huge bathroom with tub and shower. Bed was comfy with very nice sheets.

The location is also very good - surrounded by pedestrian zone with all shopping and restaurants. There are also fantastic chinese restaurants nearby with excellent dimsums!

There were only two dissapointments - no pool in this hotel and the breakfast was very average.

Apart from that, we really enjoyed our stay.

Dear Dafne07,

Thank you very much for visiting Rotterdam and choosing our hotel as your preferred place to stay; another word of thanks for the time you took to share your thoughts.

I am proud to learn that you really appreciated the location of the hotel; in the middle of the city center and across the street from the recently finished Central Station. Luckily we have entered the final phase of the construction works; rest assured that the result will be pretty spectacular. Glad to read that our staff was helpful in accommodating your requests with a late check out and in room breakfast with year little daughter; it is these little things that make the difference.

Dafne07, again thank you for your visit, in case you are planning a return visit, please do not hesitate to contact me personally.

Warm regards,

Youp Bimbergen – Guest Relations Manager

This hotel was beautiful, clean and more than we expected. The front desk agent upgraded us to an Executive Suite and gave us information on things to do in the area! The room was perfect! The bed was comfortable and quiet. We would go there again as the location was in the center of town with access to the train station across the way!

Sorry to say but i have a big expectations of a hotel. But i can't find what special is on this hotel. Service was not special or attentive. Room is simple. No free wi-fi! Most of the place have free wi-fi but if you want to use you need to pay additional so that means pay more for your room. okay, beside of this i would like to treat my self so i went to the brasserie at early evening. The restaurant looks they are closing..8:15pm at saturday evening..have asked the staff who standing in the bar..he said they are setting up the restaurant after a busy night but still...i won't have dinner in my own when staffs are starting to close...a little disappointed but i have to expect this...really dutch...

We were staying in a double room on the 10th floor. From there, we had a great view over Rotterdam! The hotel is an impressive high building right opposite the main train station of Rotterdam. Theatre, movie theatre, shopping centre and restaurants are located right next to the hotel. Our room was spacious, with 2 separate large beds with nice soft pillows. The bathroom had a bathtub and a separate shower. There were coffee (espresso) and tea facilities in the room. We had breakfast in the hotel, which was until 01:30 in the afternoon on Sunday! There was plenty of fresh food, including fresh fruit, fish, meat, cheeses, yoghurt etc. Also baked beans, sausages and scrambled egg. Coffee and tea were served and refilled at the table.

Room Tip: I am not sure if you have a good view from the rooms lower than 10th floor, because some may face a...

Dear ShoshanaSuzan,

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel as your preferred place to stay and sharing your experiences with the Tripadvisor-community. I am proud to learn that you enjoyed an excellent stay in the great city of Rotterdam and value both the location as the products & services.

I have to agree that the view from the 10th floor is rather impressive, also from other floors though the scenery is attractive.

Again, thank you for your kind words, I will make sure there are shared within the hotel. We look forward to welcome you back in the hotel.
