“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I have been travelling to Rotterdam quite frequently yet is my first stay here. The hotel is brand new, opened in May 2013. I loved everything about it; location, room size, cleanliness, newity, no fuss-ity (geen poespas), breakfast, price, staff.
I would strongly recommend it.

We had a double room with twin beds on the second floor. The size of the room was absolutely sufficient for our short stay. When you tend to stay longer, you'd might miss a wardrobe. The room and the bathroom (with a big shower) was perfectly clean (although the shower had black tiles there were no water spots). There was a good signal strength and speed of the free Wi-Fi in our room.
The staff was friendly and well organized, the breakfast was good and sufficient, everything was fresh.
Altgough our room was to the front side (rood with two lanes for each direction and tram) the noise insulation was good enough to let us sleep well. From the inside we didn't hear anything from other rooms.
The hotel is perfectly located to explore Rotterdam by foot.
I can absolutely recommend the hotel.
If I should criticise one thing, it is the narrow parking spaces in the car park that made quite a view people park on two spaces.

This hotel is 10 minutes walk to the main shopping area and restaurants/bars. It is also 5 minutes walk to Rotterdam Central station where you can catch long distance trains as well as local trams in many directions. Parking is 20 EUR per night and you can enter and exit as often as you like. Considering parking prices in this city, 20 EUR is reasonable, and I strongly recommend you use the trams get around the city as parking is very expensive in most places.

Back to the hotel, the rooms were clean and modern, air condition is quiet, Wifi in your room is free and very fast. Breakfast was included (continental, without hot options). The service is excellent and staff are very professional. If we return to Rotterdam, we would stay here again...

Having stayed in various hotels in Rotterdam I had no preconceptions about this relatively new hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. Although it is a Holiday Inn and therefore generally at the lower end I found the room to be adequate in size with a reasonable bathroom. The facilities within the room were lacking but both an iron and a safe were available outside the room if required. I liked the fact that the car park was in the building itself and the fact that the hotel is sited in the city centre meant that the park is a precious commodity! The bed was very comfortable and the TV channel selection catered for most tastes. The a/c worked very well and the internet was quick and stable. Being a priority platinum member I was told I had been upgraded but I believe all rooms are the same??. As I am a frequent business user and given all of the above I will be staying here again.

The best thing to be highlighted is, the service of the front office. A well maintained modern hotel just few steps away from the city center.Tram station also near by. The rooms are nice and clean.Breakfast is very simple, though worth.Only an issue found which is, the reception is on the 1st floor.

This place is only (max)10 minute walk from train station and we found it after a little help from locals.
It was a very nice stay as the room was clean and a not too small.Staff is very helpful and breakfast was good if you are not into heavy start of the day.
Hotel reception is on first floor and seem to have office building turned into holiday inn.
Lookout late diners....all shops close at 10pm sharp in Rotterdam.
Value for money.

Lovely modern hotel, with very helpful staff in a good central position. Breakfast was fairly basic, but all in all it was great value for what we paid. The receptionist was very helpful in giving advice on where to visit and to eat. The city centre is within easy walking distance.
