“Location and comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

A new addition to the less expensive side of the Rotterdam hotel landscape, this renovated office building is just what's needed near the beautifully rebuilt Rotterdam Central Station. Ten minutes on foot from the station, this hotel is slap bang in the heart of Rotterdam, near the city's town hall and Lijnbaan shopping area. It's great both for business and private travellers. Although the entrance is not exactly welcoming (take the lift), welcome at reception (one floor up) was warm and friendly. Later during the evening the front doors are closed and you have to ring at a side door to be let in. The nicely-decorated room (at the quieter back) had everything it needed - including a coffee and tea maker. Really good bathroom with lush shower. Of course, when I stayed there all brand new.
Didn't try breakfast. The hotel serves (draught) beer, wine and snacks. If you need more, shop at Central Station before you get to the hotel.

Room Tip: Although soundproofing is excellent, you might prefer a room at the back away from the main streets...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

The hotel is situated in one of the office buildings at walking distance from the Rotterdam Central station. Easy to reach, and close to downtown . Trams stop right in front of the door, if you want to explore further out.
A friendly lady at the reception desk asked us if we had any specials wishes for the room: wow! We asked for a room on one of the top floors (hoping for a tremendous view). It turned out that the hotel is situated on floor 1-6, the higher floors are office. Even so nice view over the Hofplein.
Room was crisp and clean and new, fantastic bed, choice of pillows. Bathroom fine, shower lovely (minor point: to flush the toilet, one has to close the lid....design error?).
The bed was so lovely and the room so quiet we nearly overslept and missed breakfast.
Good self service buffet style breakfast with enough choice of bread and cereals. Unfortunately the cappuccino from the push-button machine was disgusting. Bad quality coffee and way too much milk, which was sterilised, so we had a sort of baby coffee with boiled milk taste. UGH!
Due to the bad coffee we rated 3 and not 4 points. For excellent coffee better take a stroll to Hopper Coffee, Schiedamse Vest 146. ( http://www.tripadvisor.nl/ShowUserReviews-g188632-d4242308-r178237916-Hopper-Rotterdam_South_Holland_Province.html)

We stayed here for one night in early December 2013, Beware! If you use a wheelchair there is no lift from the car park to the Reception, a wheelchair user would have to exit the car park via the vehicle route to outside then back in the hotel and up one floor via a service lift, But if you call reception from the intercom at the exit in the car park a very helpful person should come down to assist you, otherwise a very clean modern hotel, very helpful staff, wifi in all areas including our bedroom, our (accessible) room was very big with a wet room, very happy with that, location was very good also, breakfast was also very good for an Express hotel, I would stay here again even tho access from car park to reception was not straight forward, only 4 stars from me due to wheelchair access from car park. Otherwise well done Holiday Inn Express Rotterdam.

This is a modern hotel. Everything looks new and very clean. Spacious shower, good bed with a choice of soft and harder pillows. And what my wife likes: coffee and tea in the room. The rooms are fine in size, heating and lighting. We slept on the second floor facing the busy street but the soundproofing is excellent. Also, breakfast was fine. We have made ​​use of the car park of the hotel which was a must. The gently people of the front desk allowed us to leave the car until later that evening after checking out. An entire savings when you see the prices in the neighborhood. And of course comfortable for the luggage.

Nice large room, quiet (even though I was on the street side of the hotel, with trams running past regularly), spacious bathroom. Excellent self-serve breakfast. Really my only grumble is that its difficult to find the door and the way in when you first arrive - the only signage appears to be at about 5th floor level, and the reception is on the 1st floor, meaning that I walked straight past the hotel on my first attempt. If you're walking from the station, I'd suggest you cross the road and look for the hotel from the opposite side!

I stayed there in August and I loved everything about this hotel. The location is just perfect- a short walk from the central station and close to everything. It's a brand new hotel with very modern amenities. Breakfast was nice with lots of options. Staff very friendly and helpful. highly recommended to anyone visiting Rotterdam. Im coming back there in December and looking forward to staying in this hotel again
