Was somewhat surprised at how good this hotel was for the money. Tea & coffee, good selection of English speaking channels,nice modern bedroom,friendly staff who let us leave our car parked past checkout (car parking is charged separately). Didn't have breakfast so can't comment but would definitely recommend; good location

I booked the Hotel van Walsum for a 1 night stay whilst we were on a mini cruise from Hull to Rotterdam. The coach from the Europort dropped us off at Central Station in Rotterdam at 9.50am. We were all provided with a free city map by the driver and it took us only a couple of minutes to plan... More

The Van Walsum is a nice place in a fairly convenient location just off the number 4 tram route (southbound) from the station. Incidentally if you`re ever visiting the city we recommend buying a "Rotterdam Welcome card" which gives free travel on the trams (and the buses and the Metro) plus discounts at most popular tourist sites like the Zoo...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We were first given one of the older rooms but asked for (and reveived) a renovated room on the 4th floor. Needless to say the switch was well worth it. Breakfast was above expectations, plenty of choice, good stuff! The hotel is located very close to main attractions such as musea, restos,... More

The hotel is within walking distance to the ferry dock going to Kinderdijk. It is close to some nice restaurants. The hotel staffs were friendly and provided some good information for our one day stay in Rotterdam. I would agree with other reviewers that this hotel needs some new furnitures and TVs.

We stayed for just one night but enjoyed it. Our room was small but comfortable and the service was very friendly. I couldn't find anything wrong with this place. Maybe because it was just for one night.

A very nice hotel within walking distance of Rotterdam's attractions. It's a 15-20 min walk from the train station but there are buses and trams that can take you there if you have bags. We had a room with a small balcony overlooking the gardens that was very cute. The room was clean and comfortable, the floors are probably 100... More

Nice hotel, we were up in the sloped roof attic room. Very spacious, all amenities, no complaints. Friendly staff. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on that. Quiet, no real traffic noise. Safe in room.

My first impression of the hotel as we walked up the sidewalk was "this will do". After a week here (to see the tulips), I was in love with this place and its staff. Tony, one of the owners, brought me a coffee as my husband checked in. All week long he was full of advice, friendly tips on restaurants,... More

Although the rooms are average - decently sized but furnishing is a bit dated, this is a great choice for a short stay in Rotterdam close to the heart of the city. There is a private parking nearby, some 100 meters back at Mathenesserlaan 177 - be aware that if you have a large car you'll find the parking entrance... More
