Hotel Emma became 'home base' for my Netherlands trip last week. I'd only booked two nights but liked it so much I extended my stay by several days. First of all, my room was spotlessly clean. You get fresh towels and linens every day (whether you need it or not), and the cleaner kept the bathroom immaculate. My twin room was a good size and it was also very, very quiet, which I attribute to proper soundproofing; I never heard my neighbours. I also value walkability so I found the location next to Eendrachtsplein well-situated for all kinds of nearby shopping (Lijnbaan), restaurants (I liked a few on Nieuwe Binnenweg and Witte de Withstraat) and bars (across the street there's Stalles and Rotown). Museumpark is a 5 minute walk. There's also a supermarket on the same block, handy for a rainy night when you feel like simply eating cheese and drinking amazingly inexpensive Belgian beer in the privacy of your room. Rotterdam Centraal station is about a 12 minute walk, or a short tram ride and there's a tram stop and a metro station in front of the hotel. I found the staff at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful although I didn't like that they need to buzz you in and out of the entrance (a key card swipe should be sufficient). The breakfast spread was good and featured fresh bread, fruit, yogurt, cheese, cereal, and a self-serve cappuccino machine. Another plus, there's a small elevator so you don't need to lug your things up flights of stairs.
