Hotel van Walsum
Ranked #21 of 53 Hotels in Rotterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2004

The Van Walsum is about 20 min walk from Central Station, or 5 mins on Tram 4. Its a friendly place, rooms are basic but clean with a good sized bathroom. Its worth upgrading to the deluxe double if you can - large rooms with balcony, fireplace, and beautiful ceilings. Good beer on tap and also an excellent buffet breakfast. There is also a comfy lounge with internet access and lots of magazines.

The hotel chef will do you a great meal, downside is its a fixed price 3-course meal. Not to worry though there are plenty of good eateries nearby: Good Italian just a few doors down, The Wester Pavilion Grand Cafe that does good and cheap meals, Foodies, Eten and Luxor restaurants and best of all Dizzy Jazz pub for good food and jazz on Mondays/Tuesdays. The area is an interesting mix of record shops, designer furniture shops, cafes for eating and smoking and some dodgy looking go-go bars.

This hotel is great value for money and highly recommended - and in Rotterdam there is not a lot of choice. I would also recommend this hotel for families, not something I'd say for most hotels at this price range in Rotterdam.
