this is a small house open to the public. It takes about 15 minutes to see all of it. It is really neat to see the inside of one of these houses - part of the iconic unusual architecture of Rotterdam. Cost is 3 euros per person, 2 euros for students and seniors.

Outer appearance looks like you live on an angle. No true inside BUT very small inside. Very small and steep steps to get to living area. One is open. Last week someone fell on steps, major injuries occurred. Must be fit and agile to go up and down. I'd rather live on a boat.

The cubic houses are located nearby the market (on Tuesday and Saturday). It is very interesting to have a look inside. It gives you an idea of the architect who build it in the 80-ies

We were keen to see these cube houses but the experience was underwhelming. The house is tired, potted plants were dying in the corner and there was no-one to explain anything.The girl on the desk offered little, so we spent about 15mins in there. It was worth seeing, but €3 per person was steep for what it was.

It's worth a visit but a little more explanation would be nice. Stroll around the complex and admire the funny architecture.

I've never seen anything like it before. I enjoyed discovering the houses from the outside and from the inside. I can't imagine living in one of them but I would definitely rent one for an evening if that is an option.

For just €3 you can enter an actual cube house and explore the three floors. It's worth it to get an understanding of the challenges faced by cube house dwellers. For your entrance fee, you do just get that, an entrance. There's no information or signs around the house and the rooms are not particularly stylish or pleasing to the... More

I do like the concept! Very original and interesting but can't imagine myself to I've in such unnatural space. Also is above busy road. Again great architectural idea, love it. Won't live in one of those. But this is just my personal opinion. Wort a visit to find out yourself 👍🏻😉

.. and didn't go inside the "show house". The view from Blaak station was just phenomenal. The pictures do not do them justice. Ironically, for such innovative buildings, in this area with such innovation all around - MarktHall + Blaak Station itself - these fit right on in.
