The Holiday Inn was THE lodging discovery of our recent trip. We booked an overnight because of a lay-over in our schedule, but we had no expectations beyond something clean and safe. It was conveniently close to the train station; that was all that mattered. We were very pleasantly surprised at the functionality of the design and the quiet friendliness of the staff. The room is not large (even by Dutch standards) but everything works like a fine watch. The beds are somewhat hard -- great for someone with back troubles.I want to move the bathroom into my own apartment! They have free WiFi and even free computers with printing.
Staff were wonderful, allowing us to check in early after disembarking a cruise ship early Saturday morning and helping with printing boarding passes when we left. Breakfasts were Continental, but the quality was good (especially the cheeses) and we went on our way pleasantly full. Despite nearly continuous tram traffic, noise was never a problem. One great plus is that it is a short cab ride to the cruise terminal -- or you could could even take the tram if you're traveling light. No, this is not the Grand Hotel, but we would recommend this without the slightest reservation to anyone traveling through Rotterdam. Superb value for money!!
