“Best Western - recommendable as usual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

Centrally located in downtown Rotterdam, very close to shopping malls and restaurants. City center and sightsseing places in walking distance from the hotel. Got a smoking room , but after complain the room was immediately changed. Room was very clean and spacious. Bathroom might have been a bit more clean. Breakfast with lot of choice. Recommendable, would definitely stay here again.

Different from most BW Hotels, cool and individual room design, but of low quality.

Fast internet connection, international breakfast but with low motivated employees

The Hotel has about 14 levels, the higher you get, the more impressive the sight will be.

Even the low priced rooms have a sofa in addition to the doublebed.

You have to ask for Vouchers for the Internet-access at the front desk, it's free.

The price/worth relationship is very good.

Never forget to pay the parking site in front of the hotel, even if you're just going to check in, the sites are very frequently checked and just forgetting a ticket is about 75 euros

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. We travelled to Rotterdam for the North Sea Jazz Festival without spouses. If we had brought our wives we would have instantly looked for alternative accomodation. The rooms were a disgrace - no air-conditioning with temperatures at 35degrees and incredible humidity. A noisy fan was the answer to this problem. No extractor fan in the bathroom. Room furnishing from the late 1950s/early60s. An interesting feature was on old door screwed to the wall for what reason im still trying to work out. Toiletries - soap in a container screwed to the wall, that was it. Believe me we came back to this hotel late, there was no lounging around in this place. It was clean and breakfast was good.

Hotel in good location, rooms are large and okay but nothing great. The best part is the closeness to the subway. We stayed here for two days for a city break to visit with friends. Guess it is okay if your not staying for too long.
Rotterdam is cool place to visit and we come here from time to time to see friends and family but not sure if we will chose this hotel again.

Having read other reviews I was wary of staying at the Art hotel. It is certainly not an average 4 star hotel. That said, most of the amenities are there (although my friends wardrobe had no coathangers) but they are all really quirky. The rooms were clean and large enough but were really strangely furnished. Some are also fairly noisy as the metro is nearby. However, the staff we met were all helpful - especially the manager who couldn't do enough for us. We had a quick meal in the restaurant, which was fine. We stayed there as we were attending a concert at the Ahoy centre - and therefore the location was excellent - it is just 20 mins walk from the Ahoy.

A four star hotel should have a minibar, no broken chairs and shampoo in the bathroom!
Worst of all, it was much too warm in the room and with traffic outside you will not open the window to get some freshness.
Food wasn't good. In short, you pay way too much for what you get!

From the outside the Best Western Art Hotel is uninspiring, high rise glass and concrete, but go through the door and it's a world of art, craft, quirks, colour and fantasy. The public areas, restaurant, lounge and bar areas are a fabulous mix of zany patterns, beautiful upholstery, antique furniture and a wild collection of bric-a-brac. Go up in the glass lift and even before you get to your room you are amazed by the corridors and landings. Each room number is a work of art, in different media and individually made by artists. Walking along the corridor is like wandering through an art gallery.

The room was spacious, colourfully funished and upholstered with some unusual ideas, a good mix of old, antique and new furniture. Quiet, spacious and with huge pictuire windows looking out over Rotterdam (not the best part of Rotterdam but not bad). We were surprised by the little kitchenette complete with microwave and crockery, and the bathroom did not disappoint for colour.

Breakfast was an excellent hot and cold buffet, with live musicians!! We couldn't believe it, one morning a pianist and the next a duet who played and sang (not amateurs either!): a lovely touch. We didn't try the restaurant in the evening, the menu seemed disappointingly pedestrian.

Location is good, the area is residential, the metro and tram stop are right next to the hotel, only a few minutes by metro from Central Station. Only critisism was there were no eating places nearby, but a few minutes on the metro took you right into the centre.

All in all staying here was a real experience, a hotel I will always remember, not something you can say about most city hotels. Excellent value and highly recommended.
