“Nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Located real close to the university of rotterdam and easily accessible with public transport, this is a nice hotel. Hotel looks basic, but the atmosphere in the cafe, library and lounge is very nice. Good value for money.

Stayed September 2013, traveled on business

Everything was really great, very nice, clean, modern... Next time I visit Rotterdam I'll most definitely stay in Student Hotel again! Only thing that wasn't perfect was the window - we couldn't open it...but there was air condition so it wasn't really big problem....

I dont want to be all negative, the concept is good, as well as the Website and the study rooms/wifi. The staff in 'The Kitchen' is great as well.
However,
- the rooms on the Website look bigger than the ones you are going to get + very vague description (ie 'enough' storage space -there is no bin (???)and not a lot of space)--the rooms are very basic!!
- the reception staff: the woman with the blonde, curly hair doesn't care at all + doesn't help
- the kitchens in our appartments are not like the kitchen online -small, dark, not as luxurious
- first Thing I had to do: dust my room
I was disappointed because it is quite expensive and i expected more in terms of my room, staff and space.

We were really happy with our stay in the Student Hotel. It's about a 15 minute walk to the center of Rotterdam and is quite a nice walk, there are two routes, one is along the river and is a nice walk but a bit longer. Staff were great and the receptionist drew us a map on how to get to the city centre.

The rooms were spacious and ours had a kitchenette, no pots and pans, or any crockery but there were 2 rings and a microwave. The hotel rooms are simply furnished, but are clean and comfortable. The public areas are decorated in a really modern style. There is a gym and restaurant.

There is parking outside which is paid, but is free in e evenings until about 8 I the morning.

The Students Hotel has pro's and cons.
Pro's: Good location, nice lounge to study, good beds, good for meeting people.
Con's: service & staff, lock system, only 3 washing machines for the whole building, high prices (both for lodging and for the Kitchen next to it).

Very friendly staff, very helpful.

Great value (fully furnished room, double bed, fridge, microwave, tv with international channels and private bathroom for 25 euro per person).

Nice atmosphere, great styling, inviting to hang out and meet people.

We went during the summer months and it was pretty quite there, but considering its also a student residence, the atmosphere might be completely different during the schoolyear.

There is a free parking at the Kralingse Zoom, which is a half an our walk away, or 2 stops by tram.

Thanks for staying. You should come during the Academic Year as well! You meet the world here say our students, interns and young travellers. Especially the restaurant, lounges and study rooms are buzzing with international chatter, laptops beeps, and hard working brains.

Stylish hotel minutes from city centre with the most helpful staff I've seen in a very long time! Very accommodating, polite and professional.

There is even a kitchenette in the room with a fridge, microwave and a cooker! How amazing is that?!?!?!

Proper water pressure in the spacious bathroom, very comfortable bed, more than adequate selection of channels on the television, and they even threw in a pair of stylish sunglasses!

Simply brilliant!!!
