“Hotel Philadelphia was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2007

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Philadelphia for one night last week. I have to say our room was lovely and very nicely decorated. The staff were helpful and friendly and I would have no problem recommending this hotel to anyone. Its location is superb, in the shipping quarter with about a 15min walk to the centrum or else you can just hop on a tram that passes by the hotel quiet regularly.

The only negative I would say was that breakfast was not included in the price. All the other hotels we stayed in in the Netherlands included breakfast. They wanted 10E per person for breakfast which I thought was a bit steep.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2006

I am honored to provide the first review of this lovely, intimate hotel. Refurbished and opened in May of 2006, everything is fresh, clean and functional. It's the melding of 2-3 sections of an old building(s).

It's about two blocks from Erasmusbrug and essentially caticorner from Veerhaven (the old harbor). The #5 Tram is a straight shot to-from Centraal Station.
We paid 140EU which, in early Sept, is a pretty good rate for a first class hotel here.

Our room was massive, well appointed and stylish as was the bathroom. The bed was huge and comfy.

Staff was tremendously attentive and very friendly. They can't be beat at any price. The patio is quiet and inviting. Breakfast was avg but filling. Did not dine here.

The area was great with excellent restaurants, bars, shops, galleries right out the door. There's even an Albert Hein (grocery) just up the street. The old harbor is very near with neat, old live-aboards. Just a great vibe in this neighborhood.

I would not hesitate to stay here again and would consider it a superior alternative to the big name hotels in Central Rotterdam.
