Great area if you are in the city for Erasmus, still close to main streets and there is a supermarket 5 minute walk.
Rotterdam quite boring for a tourist unless you are into museums… Don’t waste time on Binnenrote market. Very good Italian restaurant near the hotel called Spaghettata.
Hotel is nice, good bar and breakfast area. There is a fun small garden to sit and/or smoke.
Stuff is welcoming and helpful. After entering a first door, you have to wait to be buzzed in the hotel, this feels very safe.
We had a superior room, was very large, 2 closets, 2 sofas, work desk and chair. Very good shower, nothing bad to say about the room!
Maybe one small thing, if you are planning on staying in your room and watch TV, so the TV is very small and old, but do have some good English channels.
Breakfast is good. The exact same food offered each morning, but it is ok for the three mornings we stayed.
Close tram and bus stations. Not sure if this location is the best if you want to be at city center.
If ever come back to Erasmus I will defiantly stay here again.
