I was staying there for 1 night for my business trip. It's a good well furnished business hotel. If you are a little lucky you will have a great view over the water. The breakfast was also very nice and tasty even-though the room is very dark. I would recommend everyone to stay here for a business trip.

Hotel is great, servants love their work, Said is the best barkeeper/host I ever met, food is delicieus, rooms are clean and comfortable. 3 minutes walking to Blijdorp Zoo, Sportfacilities are also great. 20 minutes by car to Scheveningen. To Centre Rotterdam with the musea, shops and Markthal you can go by bus in front off the hotel.
Even parking your car in the opposite off the hotel costs only € 4,-- on the parking place.

The room was big, and although a little dated, I liked it. The bed was large and comfortable. Breakfast was fine and there was sufficient space to sit. There were only two coffee machines so sometimes there was a queue. One or two more coffee machines would be an improvement. Huge parking lot available behind a barrier for just 4 euros. Overall a very good hotel, up to Van der Valk standard.

The food was good but breakfast was chaotic. 2 coffee machines for all the guests also provide hot wat for tea so you have to queue. The breakfast buffet is good but the area around it is narrow so it’s very crowded. Dinner was relaxed and the servicer was helpful and attentive.

The room was okay but the bathroom was poor for a hotel of this standard because a) low water pressure in shower b) silicon pealing away from around the bidet c) greying, overused towels should have been replaced long ago.

TV remote was disgusting. I dread to see what a bacterial analysis would product.

The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet with good sound insulation from outside noise.

Dear Peter,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel.
I have taken note of your feedback about the coffee machines and we are currently reviewing the experience to improve this.

At this moment we have renovated 50 bathrooms and more to come. Your remark about the towels and the remote control have been discussed with our housekeeping department. This is definitely not our standard!

Thank you very much for your feedback and good to read that you have had a comfortable night in the room.

Hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Warm regards,
Sonja Koremans
Hotel Manager

The hotel is ok, not the newest rooms, but they are ok, a great big window what you can open and that keeps the room in the night cool. Breakfast is ok, not big but more then enough. Big parking (4 eu a day) and a nice restaurant, food was ok but price a little high. All together not a bad hotel, its ok. Staff was friendly, so just book it.
