We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights for a city break over the bank holiday weekend at the end of May 2013. We had requested a double room in advance, but on check in were put into a twin. When we asked to move to a double, we were told "we only have 3 in the hotel". Although we... More

Set in a typical dutch building, looks historical but is not old inside and very well kept. My room (4th fl.), even if not big, got all the comfort and a nice view over the town roofs. Coffee and tea were available in room, liquid soap by wall delivery that worked well. I would just regret a little lack of... More

Very nice staff and a perfect location for a city trip. But if you get a room with street view it could get pretty loud. The small TV was annoying as well. But for just one or two days it`s absolutely sufficient.

I had a nice stay at Hotel Van Walsum. The staff is wonderful: I had emailed them ahead of time saying that I was stopping over for 1 night after a 10-week trip, and will be bringing in a large suitcase, and they made sure I got a big room to allow me some space. The rooms was neat and... More

Perfectly nice place to spend the night. The location is just on the outskirts of the center, so if you're parking on the street you can drive a block or two and find a cheaper (or free on Sunday) spot. The check-in desk doubles as the hotel bar, which is welcoming after a long day's travels. Small, clean room, walking... More

We stayed two nights at Hotel van Walsum in May 2012. We had booked ahead, so the 2 of us were given a huge room opening on the garden on the main floor. The room was quiet and well-maintained though not stylish. I can't say enough about the staff. One of them actually walked me to a nearby laundry because... More

Location is pretty good, 15' walk from central station and several restaurants nearby. The restaurant in the hotel is only open for breakfast. The breakfast offered lots of choices including a fancy coffee machine, warm croissants, fresh fruits... The room was small and a bit noisy but otherwise everything ok.

Really helpful, friendly and caring staff. The hotel was well maintained and of a good standard. The location was excellent to explore the city and near the main shopping and night life. A really good stay and excellent value. The room was small but that's okay for a single room. It had a iron and ironing board plus mini fridge,... More

I attended this hotel on the weekend of the Rotterdam marathon. As a result we were looking for a good location and of reasonable value considering it being a busy weekend in the city.
