“Improvements Required”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Without this sounding like a list I want to simply point out hopefully to management what changes or improvements I think the hotel could use to their own benefit. The Mirror/TV is great but only if you want to watch it at night as is not possible during daylight. The remote with mouse pointer is ridiculous and a normal simple remote would be better. There are insufficient towel hooks in the bathroom. The shower floods the entire bathroom. I love the glass cube type bathroom set up though. the pillows for the bed are poor but having stayed in five different hotels in The Netherlands in the past 4 weeks it appears to be the norm everywhere. The sheets and duvet mind you were terrific. Your toiletries in the bathroom are magnificent. The shower head in our shower did not work and simply dribbled out. Rubbish. The safe was not attached to the wall or anything for that matter. Good mini fridge selection as well as tea and coffee thank you although the beer expired this June. No wifi in the hotel except something called swisscom which did not work anywhere. All in all a very comfortable room if you don't mind showering in front of your partner and don't need TV. Great views from the 21st floor where we were and very good curtains to block out the light.
Now to Breakfast. What a fantastic display of good good good variety and choice. Well done. We loved our breakfasts on all three mornings and rate it as the very best buffet breakfast we have had in Holland and probably ever.The bar area on the 7th floor and having the opportunity to go outside and take in the view is wonderful of course.Finally the staff were all particularly pleasant and happy and helpful. I would recommend the hotel and will certainly go back and honestly the bathroom issues didn't bother me but they certainly will some and especially elderly individuals would find the bathroom dangerous after a shower I think.

Room Tip: Two sides to choose from. Sunrise you get the morning sun but a limited view looking away from the c...

We have stayed a weekend at NHow Rotterdam! What a nice hotel! Perfect rooms, clean, modern, trendy and with a lot of facilities, as free wifi, nespresso machine etc! The late breakfast we had on Sunday (till 12.00 o'clock) was great, a lof choices! The service in the hotel was so good, everybody was friendly, always a great help when we had some questions about where to go and what to do! I really advice everybody who is going to Rotterdam, to stay at the Nhow Rotterdam!

Room Tip: Perfect location!

Nhow is extremely modern in design, very minimal but where do you put your clothes and suit cases? Only about 50cm hanging space in wardrobe and you have to leave your suitcase on the floor. No mirror in a practical place. The shower floods the rest of the bathroom. We also encountered problems with electrical sockets coming off the wall, the TV not working and numerous trips to the reception to get room key re activated having been stuck in lift and unable to access room. House keeping removed the soap but did not replace it, coffee & water not replenished. However, the staff are friendly & accommodating, hotel needs a womans touch. Would consider staying here again if the problems we encountered are rectified

Mr Rick van Schijndel was so kind as to show us a couple of rooms. Those at the back also have a pleasant view, but having the Erasmusbridge at your feet is something of a thrill. Sleeping in a Koolhaas building somehow feels quite grande…So don't hesitate !

Room Tip: ask for 'Maas view"

I stayed with one of my sons at Rotterdam nhow Hotel for one night. At first view, the hotel is certainly impressive. You enter a hall with an immensely high ceiling, which makes you think of a large modern church; reception is friendly and efficient. The room (sunrise) is peculiar with a bathroom that is large but devoid of bathtub: difficult to understand as the shower is inserted in a cubicle, and one wonders what the large remaining area is designed for. Magnificent view and excellent bed, but we could not find a method to manage the huge television. As for the restaurant, we experienced a nice American-style lunch and a decent buffet breakfast.
This hotel is either unfinished or designed for architecture and not for guests.

Dear Pierre,

Thank you for your review! It's intereseting to read how people experience our builidng and their stay in our hotel.That's how we improve!

About the TV: Sometimes we have some troubles with the television. It's a very new technology and the remote control is sometimes hard to handle. Next time if you experience something like this, please call the reception desk so we can help you manage.
We are an architecture and art hotel, so I can imagine it's not what you're used to! About the bathrooms: We have spacious bathroooms, and only the bathrooms in the urban rooms are provided with a bath, that's correct.

Once again: thank you for your review! And I hope we may welcome you again at our hotel when you visit Rotterdam again.

I stayed at this hotel for a conference in April 2014 a few months after it opened.
The design of the building is amazing and incredible, as is the internal design of the rooms and common areas.
The rooms are very modern with coffee machine, smart TV and comfortable bed and bathroom.
Breakfast is wide and varied and the hotel also has a trendy bar (busy at weekends) and restaurant.

Beste SLM_Malta,

Bedankt voor je geweldige review! Fijn om te lezen dat alles naar wens is geweest, en we je een fijn verblijf hebben kunnen geven. We hebben steeds meer zakelijke gasten in het hotel, en het uitzicht en de kamers zorgen dan toch voor wat extra comfort tijdens deze vaak lange werkdagen. Hopelijk mogen we je wederom begroeten als je nog eens in Rotterdam bent, zowel zakelijk als prive!

Met vriendelijke groet,

We booked the Sunset room.

View was amazing and bed was very comfortable.

There were a few downsides though: No showergel, tv in mirror reflects too much so you cant watch it with the curtains open, noise from the trains/tram outside (we were on the 23rd floor so did not expect that), Worst of all for me is that no one told me that the minibar was free - apparently at check in someone is supposed to walk with you to the room and explain all this-this was not done. TV also did not work and it took a long time and two phone calls for someone to come up and help.

The bar on the 7th floor has nice views but no virgin cocktails!? and when I asked the barman to make me one he was not at all helpful and suggested a virgin mojito which was just 2 euros cheaper and basically sparkly water and mint leaves - WHAT A RIP OFF

Breakfast was a bit chaotic and I have had better - nevertheless the quality and variety of dishes was decent.

Very nice design hotel but staff is friendly (at times) but quite inefficient (at times).
A shame as it is a beautiful hotel with amazing views.

Dear Cecee,

Thank you for your review and your honesty, I really appreciate that!
We are an upcoming hotel and there are some maintenance issues about the television, so I'm glad that you gave us your feedback, so we can improve! Maybe we can talk about this in detail? I would like to ask you if you could send me an e-mail: g.bax @ nhow-hotels. com so I can hear your whole story.

Thank you!
