“Great location, comfortable but one or two disappointments”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

After a mix up over a booking request the hotel without any fuss upgraded us to an executive room which was very much appreciated and unexpected.

The hotel couldn't be better placed for accessing all that central Rotterdam has to offer: only minutes from great restaurants and bars, shopping and museums, you are at the heart of everything. Of course that also means some noise, especially from passing traffic so ask for a high floor.

The rooms are inexpensive though I suggest that you book a refurbished one like we stayed in - they call these 'executive rooms' but they are not bigger than a standard I don't think, the difference is that they have been revamped and have a flat screen television. They are nice enough though.

The room felt cosy but the windows are single glazed so can be a little chilly. They also do not open at all so I imagine the room could be a little stifling in the summer. The other irritation was that the beds were on castors and so you could not sit up and watch television or read with your back to the headboard.

Beware the mini bar - unusually there is no price list in the room. We had two small cans of Heineken, two small bottles of water and a small Mars bar and it came to eighteen euros fifty... We had asked for a price list at reception and were told that one would be sent up but it wasn't. Reception staff were friendly but we did have to chase up on things such as when we asked if housekeeping could do anything about our moving castor bed - they couldn't by the way. Housekeeping are also friendly and efficient.

We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel - at sixteen euros fifty per head it seemed expensive to us and so we went to one of the many cafes in the area each morning. There is a bakery on the corner if you wanted to get some fresh croissants, an Albert Hein supermarket less than five minutes walk away and a bank opposite with half a dozen cash machines inside if you are short of money.

Would recommend a visit to the World Museum on the waterfront (you can also get water taxis and go on boat trips on the Maas from this area too) because there is a very interesting display about the Samurai of Japan at present.

One disappointment is that we understood from the website that there was a roof terrace and bar but it was permanently closed during our stay - it would have been a good place to watch fireworks (the streets were not the safest place with huge rockets and high power 'explosives' being set off randomly everywhere with absolutely no regard to passing people. I saw one women in real pain having been struck by a stray rocket. I have to say I think the city needs to do something about this because it did detract from our stay and I'm sure others will have felt the same).

A final comment is that we thought the art deco style of the hotel charming - especially the long light down the outside of the building. When next in Rotterdam we would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: High floor, executive room

Centrally located in town and was satisfactory overall. Check-in and out was handled smoothly by English-speaking staff. The room was spacious and clean, even though it had a dated feel due to its dark faux timber flooring. The heating was ok but always a bit too warm. For the money, it was good value, booked via Agoda. All other amenities worked fine.

My wife and I spent 30 days at the Rotterdam NH prior to moving away from Holland. While we were sad to leave our stay at the NH made our departure much more enjoyable. Living in Rotterdam for 3 years we knew that we wanted to spend our last days at the heart of the action. The NH is in the perfect location in the city center and on both the east/west & north/south metro lines. The hotel is situated within the major shopping area, tons of restaurants, and clubs/bars. We stayed in their one bedroom apartment which provided the space we needed for such a long stay, the room could use a facelift to match the quality of the other updated rooms in the hotel though. The staff was extremely helpful and even secured a monthly parking pass in a heated parking garage just across the street for us as parking in downtown Rotterdam is a pain and expensive. I must say that the highlight of our stay was meeting and spending time at the bar with one of the best bar men in the city "Dugie", who catered to every want or need you can imagine and truly treated us as VIPs. I recommend this hotel to anyone spending a weekend in Rotterdam or someone that needs a larger accommodation for an extended stay.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the updated rooms.

Your first impression when you get in is that this was an art deco hotel at its time , when you get to your room tis is confirmed : old carpet , big room but not much furnitures , small bed , old style TV . The bathroom is ok with heated floor but the rest really needs a revamp !
Strange as NH is usually having a quick "young" approcah . This does not stick wuth their image .
Breakfast was included for me and was ok . There is no fitness but they give you a voucher for Shockers that is 7.50 Euros (be careful they finish early in the afternoon) . There is a David lloyd neraby but it is 20 Euros per day with swimming pool.
Finally this hotel is 10 mns walk from rail station Rotterdam Centraal and from ther you can get bus Nbr 33 to the airport for 3 euros , they run every 15 mns .

My husband and I stayed at the Rotterdam NH Atlanta this weekend on Friday and Saturday night. We booked the weekend extender in one of the larger rooms with a king size bed (as the smaller doubles are apparently two single mattresses pushed together rather than a proper double).

The room itself was huge. There was a very large (and comfortable) king-sized bed plus lots of floor space and a seating area. The room was quite dark. It had big windows along one wall but in the evening when it was dark the lighting in the room was only just sufficient. The lighting came from a variety of lamps, none of which were very bright so the first thing we would have to do when we got in was go round turning them all on.

As part of the deal we didn't have to check out of the hotel until 5pm on Sunday and the contents of the mini-bar was included in the price. The late check out was fantastic as we were out on Saturday night and didn't get back until very late. The mini-bar didn't have a huge amount in it so it wasn't a huge bonus to have it - we could have bought the items ourselves for not a lot.

Breakfast was reasonable although there wasn't much left when we got there at 11am on Sunday despite it being open until 12.

The location of the hotel is fantastic and right in the middle of everything that you might want to do. We walked everywhere. The furthest was down to the old harbour and that only took about 20 minutes.

On our last night the weather outside was really wild and there was quite a bit of noise (it sounded like a flag pole moving in the wind) but we heard virtually nothing from inside the hotel and overall, the noise levels were pretty good. The room itself was on a floor with a conference room (floor 7) and was extremely well sound proofed from it as on Saturday night there was a very loud Christmas party (at least that's what it sounded like) and we couldn't hear a thing in our room.

The room felt quite expensive (200 euros) for what we got but it was comfortable and not that bad when compared to the cost of other hotels in Rotterdam and Amsterdam over the weekend. We definitely felt it was worth paying a bit extra to get the late check out and the larger room.

We stayed only one night...from the Hull-Rotterdam ferry. We could not check in til 3pm but left our bags in secure room at reception. Room was huge. Underfloor heating in the bathroom was delicious. No view but we did not care...too tired from stormy crossing and hours of shopping. Beds very comfortable. Lighting dim but not a problem for us. Staff friendly and helpful.
Hotel excellent for shopping areas. Blaak market great for pottering. Lobby bar very good. Did not use Chinese restaurant but could see that it was very popular!

I stayed dor business for 3 nights and will not go again.
positive points : The hotel is facing the town hall in the heart of the city center.there is a free "coffee & tea on the go " bar every morning , convenient if you woke up at the last minute.
However the overall value is quite poor : 100 years old mattresses , clean bed linen with holes,very very poor wifi (could not do more than 10mn of work), room lights too dim to see clearly what is in your suitcase, heating is centralized amd very low (my room was cooler than the lobby), small details such as no bin in the bathroom... The cleaning service is superficial leaving used cups and glasses as they are. Breakfast is nice but really over priced.
All in all, not such a nice experience.
