I stayed here with my partner, we were very surprised at how far from the centre of Rotterdam it was. Our room stated view of Rotterdam Skyline on the internet - you sure do if you can stand on your toes to look thru the window!
Check in was very formal and non friendly, the Receptionist made an issue that we were a gay couple which was very embarrassing as others were checking in at the same time. Unfortunately our experience got worse every time we left or entered the hotel as the Receptionists WATCH every step that you make - it was not friendly, it felt like security!!
The hotel was itself nice, but I was so uncomfortable that I was very close to checking out and moving to another hotel, the Reception should learn some manners and in a gay accepting country such as Holland they should be a little more accepting themselves.
