“View on Erasmus bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great location near city centre, 3 subway stops from central station, near Erasmus bridge. We enjoyed a wonderful room with jaccuzi, sauna, and a great view. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. To be recommended! There is a spa, which unfortunately was fully booked, so make sure to make reservations well in advance.

This is really an excellent hotel, with all the luxury amenities you would expect (bath robe, extensive minibar with surprising stock ;-) but very reasonably priced. We had a room at the harbor side, which wasn't spectacular as far as the view was concerned, but still worth the extra money. The staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was outstanding. Tip: book the breakfast when you get there, we were offered the price of €20 instead of the €28 advertised on booking.com. no idea why. Walking distance to the great museums of Rotterdam. We'll be back if we get the chance!

We stayed one night at this relatively new hotel. Room was very clean, with great massage and bubble bath. Friendly personnel. And breakfast next morning is well worth the money. Great buffet, great choice of fresh food. Also great views from the higher floors over the Leuvehaven. Location is excellent. Close to Witte de With shopping street with bars and café's, also short walk over the Erasmusbrug to the Kop van Zuid. Should you wish to go further away (including to The Hague) the metro stop is literally right before the front door. All in all: great hotel for a pretty decent price.

Stylish, modern, comfortable hotel in a good location by the waterfront in Rotterdam. Lovely comfortable bed and stylish bathroom, with large deep bath with jacuzzi-type effects. Nude sauna and steam room, too. Ideal for a city break, with a chance to unwind and spoil yourselves.

We spent 4 nights in a water view room with sauna. Room (with view), facilities, restaurant and location are worth the 5 stars, especially if you can get some discounts via an internet booking.

The (small) sauna in the bath(room) is not really necessary if you use the H2O spa on the 8th floor, which is larger, with hammam and relax zone (with view). The H2O spa does not allow bathing suites but you can also access the Innhotel wellness space next door where bathing suites are mandatory ... including a swimming pool.

The only downside is the cleaning personnel: the room was not clean at all, every day they took our towels, but left the used coffee cups and did not supply new soap or shampoo :(.

Though described as part of the room, we did not have bath robes with slippers. We ordered them via the reception and got them within reasonable time. The day after, the cleaning personnel took them from the room when cleaning and ordering them again took ages :(.

To conclude, 28 euro for the breakfast is too expensive for what you get. You can get a custom fresh egg which is made on demand and you have some 'champagne' if you like that in the morning, but the juices are not 100% fresh, neither is the bread (for 1 day out of 4).

Room Tip: The rooms with water view are worth the extra cost, the (small) sauna in the (bath)room not.

My partner and I stayed at the Mainport over the Valentine's weekend. The room we had was modern, bright and well appointed. The bathroom is definitely a highlight. The sauna was a welcome distraction from the jacuzzi bath, from which the television could be viewed in comfort.

We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and although one or two people have complained about the service, we found the evening went extremely well.

All in all we both had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would readily recommend the Mainport to anyone.

My girlfriend and I spent Valentine's Day weekend here for a quick break. The location was fantastic: right next door to the stunning Erasmus bridge. We had a corner room with city view, which was very cool. The bed was amazing, whirlpool bath with tv in the mirror across was perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon after exploring the city and doing some shopping. We arrived late on Friday evening in the rain and were surprised by the ice machine, the awesomeness of the pool area, the views and the limited though delicious room-service menu.

All in all, we've already decided that the Mainport will be a destination for another city break in the future. Neither of us has stayed in a hotel in Holland anywhere near so ideal.
