The staff at this hotel were efficient and helpful. Our room was a good size, and well-appointed, with a wet room and tea-making facilities. However the window was high up, so nothing much could be seen. The buffet breakfast was good, with a wide selection. Bicycles can be stored in the back garden, which is secure but not covered from...

We stayed at Hotel van Walsum as a group of filmmakers attending the International Film Festival Rotterdam and having a workshop inside the hotel itself. The location is fairly central (a 15-min walk from de Doelen). The rooms and apartments we were lodged in were clean and comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly, always available to assist with all requests... More

Visited in may 2015, my boyfriend organised with the hotel a surprise for me, champagne, chocolate, balloons... It was amazing. The room was big, comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Breakfast was ok, we ate outside in the tiny garden they have behind. A short walk from the station, lots of restaurants, shops and pubs close to the hotel. Love the city,... More

This is a delightful hotel. Our room was well furnished, with a very comfortable bed, and we were upgraded to a Comfort Room which included various extras such as coffee making facilities. The room had a balcony, though I can’t imagine why anyone would want to sit out to view the apartment blocks across the road. The bathroom contained a... More

We had the family room with four beds, there is not so much space - practically just beds and bathroom, this didn't bother us, because we were in the hotel just to sleep and shower. Good breakfast! Hotel Walsum a good and practical choice for a city trip. We would book this hotel again!

We had a room on the ground floor. And that room was dirty! The wallpaper was peeling of the walls, there were cracks in the walls, traces of moisture damaging and there was a calendar hanging up in a suspicious location, behind it: another crack in the wall! Also they had these old flower curtains, like the ones my great... More

I picked this hotel because of the price and location. My other choice was near the train station. I had a single room which was very comfortable and well-equipped, even had a small fridge and safe. The breakfast had many choices including bacon and eggs, many breads, cheeses, cereal, yogurt.... The staff was always very helpful. The tram was right... More
