“In a nice area, and walking distance to everything”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Small and nice hotel located near to all the areas of interest in Rotterdam.
The rooms had a good size and was clean. It would have been nice to have the breakfast included, but you have plenty of places in the surroundings.
I was in the top floor, so I had a view of the city and it was very quiet.
Good place to be for a weekend.

Great place, service and beds. Perfect location in Rotterdam and at a good price, like the breakfast! Nice building on a side streets and only 20 or so rooms make this a boutique hotel. Very friendly staff!

We stayed for a week at the Van Walsum during Marathon weekend (the marathon is a great experience, very well organized and completely flat to run).
The hotel is very well situated and you can reach most mayor sights on foot. Tram and bus are right outside the door. A couple of nice bars and restaurant are just around the corner, so is a Coop-supermarket as well as a food store that sells bio-products.
The different receptionists were very friendly and helpful. Room size varies a lot (we had booked two rooms, one was very spacious (41), whereas the other one was just too small (33). Cleaning staff was very noisy when you wanted to sleep after 8 in the morning.
