“Very pleasant”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Stayed at the Ape Calypso during last Feb for a business trip , and it was way above our expectations. The place is in the heart of the city, quite , clean , and everything we needed was within a walking distance. The property rating is very good, but i would rate it as excellent for the superb attentiveness of the owner Mr. Alex, and his kindness.

“Modern Clean Appartment with a fantastic view”
Reviewed February 3, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Appartmnet on the 17th floor with a fantastic view over the city of Rotterdam We loved it. Appartment is equipped with all the necessary appliances. Big Fridge/freeezer with icecube machine, dishwasher washingmachine TV with audio WI-FI and cupboards even stocked with extra salt/pepper thee coffee binbags fruit and cookies. A map of and books about Rotterdam OV Cards for Public Transport. Extra Towels etc. Also the Calypso Building is a well kept building with a Reception and nice Entrance and it is close to the Station and all public transport and also with the rent it is included a parkingspace which is very wellcome in Rotterdam as a dayticket for parking is around 25 euro a day. Overall I give this Rental a 9.

“The best place to stay in Rotterdam!”
Reviewed December 1, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Clean, bright, spacious apartment right in the centre of Rotterdam.
3 minutes walk from Centraal station and a short walk to all the main areas of town.
Kitchen and bathroom are modern - excellent wifi and tv system.
The best part is the view from the balcony - a real wow factor.
Alex is very, very helpful and if you are in Rotterdam you should not look any further than here....a real gem!

“Fabulous apartment, great location”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in this apartment when visiting Rotterdam for our sons graduation. The apartment is in an excellent location with wonderful views. It is superbly appointed, spotless and comfortable - even better than in the photographs! The parking in the basement is a real bonus. For visitors arriving by train, the station is a very short walk away. Alex was very helpful, meeting us on arrival and explaining everything to us. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We hope to return next year. Highly recommended!

“Fabulous apartment in centre of Rotterdam”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We (family with 2 young children) stayed 1 week in Alex' apartment and it was just great! It really felt like home away from home. The view is amazing, the beds are comfortable, it is spacious and clean, our kids loved it as well. We already miss the delicious coffee. The location couldn't be better, walking distance from the central station, close to all the shops, restaurants and the movies. We would definitely recommend this accommodation. Alex was a great host, explained everything in detail and could be reached very easily. Rotterdam is a fantasic city, top end architecture, fine foods, relaxed people and if you are looking for a nice place to stay and to explore this dynamic place, we would recommend Alex' Ape Calypso.

“Look no further !”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As a Rotterdam native, I enjoy being "in the middle of it" when I return to visit. We've stayed at other apartments , but this one tops them all. The location to everything "Rotterdam", the view of the city's skyline, the interior decorations, the 17th floor, which get you away from city noise but not the sounds :-), the beautiful balconies, (yes plural), and the cleanliness combined with the spaciousness makes this the perfect place to stay. We had the pleasure of staying here for almost 2 weeks, and did not want to leave. Alex is a very gracious and classy host, very helpful and great to communicate with. Either via Tripadvisor message, email and WhatsApp.
