The Van Der Valk hotel has more to offer than you might first think and is very well placed for business or surrounding Europoort. Modern amenities and well appointed rooms with good wifi and good customer service throughout. Recommended for business visitors .

This hotel was chosen due to locality to the highway and not recommended if you plan to visit Rotterdam center. It is a good way from the city. Seems to be very many local tourists/visitors. The room was nice and clean. Price was good. Restaurant in the hotel is a little over-rated(?), and a little pricey for the level of... More

An excellent hotel with great facilities, Modern facilities, excellent layout including top restaurant with professional staff. A 30 minute walk to the centre is probably the only drawback but with public transport nearby the quality of the hotel makes it worth the money. Highly recommended.

Nice, clean, average standard rooms with a decent bathroom. My room overlooked the internal courtyard and I missed having an external view, but it was certainly fine for a one night trip. I arrived too late for the restaurant but they do offer hot snacks from the bar, but the choice is very limited and all a bit deep fried.... More

While on holiday in my home country we booked one night in this hotel, to visit family in the area. The hotel has got the VanderValk chique style: luxurious, but not over the top, a spacious room, great comfy bed and a very good shower room. Loved the room, apart from the fact it looked out on the Atrium of... More

Nice hotel a liitle bit far away from the center but only 200m from the ZOO 😉 Uber to the center costs around 7€, by walk it is around 25minutes. Hotel restaurant is a bit expensive, but room was clean every day after we came back to the hotel. For me 4* not more.

Dated facilities, room furniture and bathroom. Not good sound proofing. Both telephones in the room are filthy and dusty. Bathroom rails and roll holder were dusty, toilet stained. Left an empty plastic bottle of Pepsi next to the bin in the room (didn't fit in) - the bin was emptied, but the bottle left... Surely not thought we would need... More

I stayed here for office meeting. The room was ok, cleanliness ok, only the service of the restaurant is a little bit slow, sometime we have to wait an hour for 1 food order. If you plan to visit the blijdorp zoo, its a great place to stay, but if you like to discover the rotterdam, i will not recommend... More

On the other side we always offer a late check out to your company when possible. Sure we will discuss with our receptioniste about her attitude but... More

First of all, I've been several times to Van der Valk Rotterdam-Blijdorp and I am generally a quite regular guest at the Van der Valk chain. My visits to Blijdorp are usually for a night or two and I have always been happy with the fact that the hotel is a bit off the track and yet close to the... More
