It pays to read everything before pressing the booking key. I didn't quite read the fine print, but no matter, this place has the location for the price & an OK bar too. My room was just for me, which is just as well, as another person there would've been impossible. Shared WC & shower with 4 other rooms, the view was not of the river & Erasmus Bridge that everyone (quite rightly) raves about, but the building next door & shared car park. However, the bar has people in it as I think this place is used by seafarers about to catch a ship & others who want a cheap value-for-money place. Maritime memorabilia throughout - so you know you are in Europe's biggest port city. Breakfast was fine too, but not much hot food, but the coffee & fresh bread were great - the smell alone is enough. But the dining room has no windows & hence no view. The bar is also on the wrong side at the back, unlike the Tulip Inn adjacent which has it on the river side. Whereas MH has a sitting area - a waste of an opportunity surely? Ditto the huge area between the bar & reception/waiting, much ado about nothing here. But it is by the river, nearby some nice spots such as the maritime musuem at thje old harbour museum, yacht club marina full of old boats, the #7 tram terminus is outside, which goes to the 'hot spots' & terminates at the central station. So as many say, if you just slepp there it's good. If you pay up & get a river view room, it must be great. But not cheap.
