Stayed in this Hotel 2 nights in december 2011. I booked a balcony room as i wanted to have a nice view and make pictures of the skyline by night. I had room 203. It was very nice. My friend came the day after and had room 204, wich was bigger but had a shower instead of a bath. It was different then mine, all rooms seem to be different, they all have this nice touch tho. The whole hotel breaths grandeur and good-old-times. Its a special atmosphere there. I think the service was very good. I booked a table for a high tea at 4 pm. I asked for a windowtable. She said she could not promis that because it gets very busy in the afternoon. I said i asked first...hahha. At 4 pm we were stilll shopping so i called the restaurant and told them we were gonna be late. We arrived at 5 pm to find the restaurant totally full, loaded with ppl...except one little table by the window. That was still empty for us. Now..THATS what i call service.
The beds sleep wonderfull, the view on the front of the hotel is amazing, food is great, breakfast is sufficient...just the coffee at breakfast is horrible!
I can not think of anything wrong with this Hotel, apart from the service being a little to 'cold' Very bussinesslike, they could at a peronal touch a bit. Other then that...perfect place to stay when visiting Rotterdam. Location is superb, do take the boattaxi to the shoppingarea!
My compliments, being Dutch, i am proud to have this Hotel in our country!
