Was in Rotterdam for the Eurogames and stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with my partner who is a footballer. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the public spaces are modern, with a funky feel, if slightly dated.Its a water theme but the display of various taps outside the bar/restaurant is odd for my taste ( more plumbing city than city hotel)
The location is very convenient with 2 sides of the hotel overlooking modern water scenes and 2 sides the road intersection, tram; metro station and building site.
The pool and gym are on the small side but the sauna and seam room are very nice, even if the no clothes policy was a bit disconcerting.
The rooms on the front of the hotel with no view are very small, suitable for a short business stay for 1 and a copy overnight for 2. Clean with a double bedded room being two singles pushed together, not uncommon across Europe. The décor is circa Ikea 1990's with compact well designed bathroom even with the toilet hidden behind the door, nice toiletries through.
We understand that the rooms in the panoramic tower are more modern and some have king beds. The front desk is well rehearsed with requests for a larger room or a room with a view, it all costs extra from 15€ -45€ a day upwards. So don't think (like me) you could charm your way into a better room for free, even joining the rewards program in advance did not make any difference..
We did not have breakfast because we thought it was way too expensive and choose to stock our mini room fridge with breakfast anyway from the local supermarket 1 block away (ask reception) which have excellent boxed salads.
We ate and drank in the hotel brassiere and bar, as with most hotels a bit more expensive than outside and odd special offers that are the same price dishes as on the menu. Very friendly and everyone here speaks English and very helpful..
Loads of TV channels for free including BBC1, not that you would spend much time in your room, soundproofing is a issue and at 2am with had to ask our neighbouring room to lower the volume.Double glazed windows do cut most outside noise but its a city centre after all with a hotel extension building site next door.
Its a well appointed reasonably priced city hotel, if you can afford it pay extra for better rooms do so, but otherwise just an overnight bag if you want to be able to walk around your bed.. I would only stay here again for 1 night on my own.
We enjoyed Rotterdam but its a working port, with lots of modern architecture and to be fair we did not shop or do any cultural things because the football games were out near the airport. I had passed through Rotterdam last year en route to The Hague, the Rotterdam central station area is still a massive building site and I would go to The Hague or Amsterdam in preference for a weekend away in the Netherlands.
Great deal travelling via Eurostar London to Brussels, includes travel to any Dutch station on inter-city not Thalys trains..
Pay for a better room in advance
