“Brand new, convenient and a great Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2009

The brand new Domina Rotterdam Hotel is conveniently located on the main access road to the center of the city, or a 5 min cab drive from the station.
It is modern with a bright and lightly lobby that opens to the bar and restaurant area.
Rooms are fully equipped (lcd tv, internet access) and with a modern style.
Breakfast is generous and various,the Italian Chef makes lunch or dinner a true Italian experience.
I attended a 2 days company meeting and all in all everything was perfectly organized.
Given it proximity to the zoo it could also be the ideal location for a family week end.
Certainly recommended

Positives:
- Hotel was quite new so everything is spanking clean and contemporary
- Friendly and helpful staff
- Great breakfast buffet
- Very close to the Rotterdam zoo and you can even see the Polar bears outside your window
- Great view of the city in the night
- Quiet and peaceful
- Easy access to bus to take you to the heart of the city

Negatives:
- Food in the hotel restaurant is a bit expensive for lunch and dinner
- Costly room service - they charge you 5 bucks just to bring some cups to the room

Overall I felt sorry for them cause we were there during Christmas and they hardly had any guests. I do hope that is not true for them throughout the year. This is a good place to stay at if you are in Rotterdam.
