“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Rooms are really modern and spacious, with excellent view on the city and harbour. Location is excellent, as well as breakfast. The hotel it self is a monument and staff was really friendly. We will come back again !

I was booked into this hotel by work and it was a lovely hotel close to the port and metro stations.
Extremely modern and comfortable it was perfect for a one night stay.
Bathroom& bedroom were both gorgeous with plenty of amenities. Breakfast which was included offered a great selection.
Would stay her again and would recommend.

Rotterdam lies at your feet, the view from my room was spectacular. Tram and metro are only minutes away. The overall service was average, the bar staff was not really interested in serving me and the service was slow. My room, a suite, offered ample space. The two television sets can only be watched at night the design does not allow for daytime use. The remote control did not function well. One cupboard door did not close. Overall I feel the room was overpriced and the hotel overrated.

We stayed at the hotel for one night. We booked a cheap room and when we arrived the upgraded us to a much nicer room with a view of the Erasmusbrug. We didn't had to ask for an upgrade, they just gave it to us because it wasn't busy.
The lady at the front desk walked us to our room and explained how the tv worked.
The bed is very comfy and the rooms are nice and clean (and new and modern).
Breakfast was great! Have been in a lot of hotels, but this breakfast is one of the best I've had for this price. Lot's to chose from. The bar is nice and the view from the outside terras is great. The public at night is a bit hip and fancy (not our kind), but the staff is great.
The hotel is very close to the subway and to hotel New York where you can have a nice lunch.

I would go back here if I'm going to Rotterdam.

Room Tip: If you want to be sure you have the great view then book a room on the sunset side. But I think all...

With my usual rider that someone else was paying, this was an excellent choice of mine corporate hosts.

Location seems odd but then you get to the room (21st floor in my case) and get a 180-degree view of Rotterdam harbour and the Erasmus bridge, as other reviewers have noted. Stunning.

The room is uber-styled but (most) of this style and cutting edge design is not at the expense of practicality. Unlike Lisbon's odd Evidencia Belverde Atitude, reviewed recently, the bedside tables actually reach to the bed and the AC outlets are close enough to keep your phone/alarm plugged in all night. Lighting is good, too, wifi works in all areas, a/c actually responds to the wall 'stat and, bonus, there's an unusual opening vent to let outside air in though, if you open the hall door at the same time, the gale force draught is amazing... And be warned, trams heading on to the bridge make a right row (clang, bang, roar) in the middle of the night! This is minimised with that vent shut, though.

I'm not sure if every couple staying here will appreciate the 100% see-thru bathroom and it's either have the outer glass door shut - to minimise the draught round nether regions while showering - and the loo open, or vice-versa, which is odd and, post morning constitutional, annoying unless they start supplying air freshener to complement the extractor vents. Some form of bathroom heat would be nice, or at least a heated towel rail - there was nowhere to hang towels handy when showering or to allow them to dry afterwards. A nice selection of amenities was included, along with a 'pod' coffee maker, safe (as usual, too small for my huge laptop) and minibar.

Architecture in places like floor lift lobbies was minimalist (lots of bare, polished concrete) but imaginative (seats on top of heating radiators).

Staff ran a cocktail event and set-menu dinner with professional aplomb.

'Town' is, apparently, a 10-minute walk. Parking is available but, if driving here, research the entry point on Streetview before you arrive as the entrance is not obvious and you can't drive in to the front door.

Even on my own dime, I'd stay again. With pleasure.

Room Tip: View versus noisy bridge trams is worth it. Shut the vent if it bothers you.

I spent a night at this great hotel and was most impressed. A fantastic design by Rem Koolhaas with floor to ceiling windows, beautiful hardwood floors and a pristine, modern vibe, the Nhow is already a favourite. The view I had from the 18th floor over the Erasmus bridge was exquisite. Top marks all around and Ed the bartender on the 7th floor bar is a master of his trade.

The hotel is brand new. It's located in a beautiful building (designer Rem Koolhaas) at the river the Maas. The city center is a 10 minute walk.

The signage of the building is not very obvious. So it is a little bit difficult to find.

The rooms are contemporary and beautiful. The sleeping quality is excellent.

The terrace has a view on the city and the river. Great spot to have breakfast or drinks.

In small things you notice that the hotel is still starting up. The elevators do not respond well to the room keys. The reception staff is very kind and helpful, although not very knowledgeable. The spoons provided at breakfast don’t fit in the yoghurt containers. Getting your eggs takes a long while. The intercom of the parking meter is not functioning etc.

Give it some time and then this is a great hotel to stay in.
