We had a 5 night stay in this attractive older hotel, which provides parking for €20 per day [€40-45 on the street!] but it’s easy transport connections and central location meant we parked up and used public transport, including speedy water taxi, and walked to visit a wide range of interesting galleries, museums and architecture. We visited Den Haag and Delft also using public transport. All the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, the room was beautifully light and large, the breakfast of five star quality and variety. It was a real pleasure to visit here.

Hotel Van Walsum is a small hotel located in what looked to be an older neighborhood, that was quite and without the big city hustle & bustle. It's also a short walk from a tram stop. My check-in was friendly and quick. While not particularly large, my room was quiet and comfortable, with places for personal items. The Wi-Fi worked well at all times. The only thing that was a little odd about the rooms, was the alarm system. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, especially when it came to sightseeing needs. The morning breakfast was very good, featuring both hot and cold items. The hotel has a small bar. The area around the hotel had a number of interesting shops and cafes. If it lacked anything, it was restaurants for finer dining. I had a pleasant 3-day stay in Rotterdam.
