“Great mix of value and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This hotel's combination of location and economy struck me as achieving a good balance.

Turning left out of the central train station, it's an easy 5-minute walk away. Seemingly half the city's trams pass through the station out front. I had a conference at the convention center, which is a 10-minute walk on mainly pedestrian streets.

The room was not especially large, but with one queen bed, did not feel at all cramped. Amenities were limited -- soap dispensers, instant coffee, no real closets or drawers (though some shelves), small TV -- but the construction was new and the decoration cheerful. Windows along the length of one wall were welcome, as was the substantial desk. The bed was comfortable and had no lack of pillows (a choice of soft and hard). Given the reasonable price, inclusive of wifi and a cold breakfast buffet, I felt that the hotel facilities more than met my expectations.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street have an entertaining view of constant tram traffic, yet little noise gets th...

This was my first visit to Rotterdam, and sadly, it was only for an overnight stay from our trip from Paris to Amsterdam. To sum it up, this hotel made me want to come back to Rotterdam!

This is a new hotel (and it shows) that's very modern, chic and trendy (like the city of Rotterdam). It's location is unbeatable. It is walking distance from the train station, the trams basically stop in front of the hotel, and you only have to walk a few minutes to be in a plaza full of restaurants, bars and shops that it's so lively, you could make that place your only stop.

The hotel room was spotless, very spacious (considering European hotels standards), the bathroom was extremely ample, the a/c worked to perfection and we had free WiFi. It also offers a free complementary breakfast that was basic but complete (and again, free!)

I have absolutely no complains about the hotel and would recommend it with my eyes closed to anyone going to Rotterdam. This is the place to stay. Period.

Stayed here 1 night. Very nice room and bathroom (however lay-out of the bathroom good have been better). The bed is rather small (140cm), but comfy.
Large parking available, which was also a plus. Breakfast was basic but ok.
Would recommend for a short stay or business trip.

We stayed there for one night only and we recommend it. It's basic, quiet, very clean with a nice breakfast. Perfect for a short stay, or for regular stays: you can be sure it will be clean and handy !
We were overall very satisfied with this hotel, fair value and not too far from nice areas of rotterdam (and centraal station)! May just add though that we found the afternoon staff way more helpful and friendly than the morning staff.

Also, there is a parking :20 euros for 24hours.

Rotterdam station surrunds don't have a lot of obvious breakfast spots (other than the usual station fare of course). The breakfast at this hotel provides a really good selection which is very handy and you can see why the hotel is popular with families and business people. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. While the hotel is not in the most scenis part of town, you can walk or take transport to wherever you need to go. Note that the hotel is not actually part of the train station, so write down some walking directions as it is not immediately apparent where the hotel is located if you just wander out of the station.
