The hotel is a former hostel which is gradually being upgraded, but the parts we saw were still in very tired condition . During our visit it was undergoing major exterior renovation and the front was covered in scaffolding. This is not mentioned on the website or elsewhere. Workers started working immediately outside the windows of our ("executive") room at 8am, drilling and creating fumes so it would have been quite impossible to stay there until the check-out time of 11am. We were offered a compensatory free stay to be confirmed by email, but this never arrived.
Shame because it is well-located and the reception staff-member we dealt with was polite.

Room Tip: Check carefully which rooms are affected by the renovation - for now avoid the front rooms.

Stayed at this hotel several times as our HQ is located nearby. For this purpose it is very convenient , but is also ok if you would like to go to the city center.
Rooms are minimalist and amenities basic but bedding is comfortable and it is very clean.
The service is very friendly and breakfast is quite nice.
Evenings the breakfast room turns into an extension of the sushi restaurant, which brings animation but does not disturb when in your room. Rooms at the back of the hotel are preferred as the front is at crossroads (almost) with trams and cars passing by.

We did stay here for 3 nights and it is that I was too lazy otherwise I would have looked for a better place. I still rate it as average because I did sleep good, the breakfast was good and the staff very friendly but otherwise it should be rated as poor.

Their web-site does not reflect reality and be aware that although the entrance & restaurant is located in a beautiful look old house the rooms are located above "Sumo" restaurant next door.

Their is very weird way of a very small & old lift and small hallways to the rooms with many doors. And once in the room you see that nice design and expensive materials still not make a good hotel room. Everywhere the finishing touch was of poor quality. Like bed-sheets that were not 100% clean, old towels and a damaged room-door.

Must be said again that the staff was very friendly and although the breakfast was simple it was good and fresh and just what I need.

We stayed here because it was very close to the station, literally five minutes. The bed was very very comfortable, and I'm often uncomfortable on hotel beds. The room was very modern so I'd say the place has been done up since some of the reviews here. The bathroom was massive, unusually large for a hotel. The staff were friendly during our stay, we called and asked for some real milk and they brought us some. The location was good, it was easy to walk to the main shopping areas and it was nice to be along a canal. I would recommend this place and I'd stay here again.

I have made a resevration for a hotel near the rail station, indicated in various sites as a 3 ot 4 star hotel. it is on the limit of Chinatown, in a place where my taxi driver said not to go out in the night. the front of the hotel and the lobby are really miserable, dark, bad maintenance, ugly. My room was worse. i single roon filled by the bed, with a dirty carpet, noisy window on the tram, very small bathroom. the following night I escaped from the place.

This is good value for money hotel when you have a good deal via inetrnet ( 70) Euro. Rooms are small but clean but TV and inetrnet works and bathroom has all you need.
It is good when you are in transit and need one night to sleep in Rotterdam.
