Thon Hotel Rotterdam

Reviewed 26 January 2013

The special asset of the hotel is the location, at the river directly at the Erasmus bridge. So, if you can get a room looking at the bridge, that is a reason to book the hotel. However, those rooms also get more of the noise from the trams on the bridge, which might wake you up in the morning. Otherwise I don't see any special reason to book or to avoid the hotel.

My room was okay but a bit small; I liked the wooden floor and the maritime touch. The bathroom was quite clinical but did its job. The bed felt a bit cheap and unstable but it also did the job. The breakfast was good.

Tiny room. Bar food absolutely awful: everything deep fried - deep fried chicken, deep fried bacon, deep fried mashed potato (seriously!). Are they trying to kill us? Avoid the food in the bar at all costs, although the breakfast was very good, varied and plentiful.

Nice enough people, Good location. We stopped there for two nights, but the size of the room was too small even for such a short stay (We had a "Classic" room which was tiny 3.35m x 3.6m (11ft x 12ft). One night would have been acceptable. Still, I suppose it is a city hotel in a good location at a cheap price.)

Room Tip: We had a "Classic" room which was tiny 3.35m x 3.6m (11ft x 12ft). Still, I suppose it is...

Stayed for 5 days, first when i booked online for the economic room on the picture it seems ok but in reality it's so small with a ghetto view so I asked to be upgraded for the superior room and had a beautiful view on the bridge. The breakfast is ok, the dinner is expensive and not that good. There's goods restaurant near there.

I stayed here for 9 nights recently - I was in Rotterdam for outpatient eye surgery, and had to stay for that length of time for follow ups. I chose the Tulip because it was a convenient location for the clinic, and because it was a reasonable price. As I stayed for one night on an earlier visit I knew it was comfortable enough for this longer stay. I asked for, and got, a quiet room on the 5th floor. I booked a double room just for myself so that I wouldn't feel claustrophobic spending a lot of time in the room after the surgery. It was clean with a good shower and comfortable bed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good but expensive unless you eat a lot! However there are tea making facilities in the room, so I often didn't bother with breakfast. The restaurant is ok, but a limited menu for lunch/dinner and the wait for the meal much too long, even when there were only a few customers. On the whole it worked out well for me, and I will probably stay there again on my next visit.

Stayed here on an one night business trip. Rooms are clean, however a bit outdated. With a good package deal it is worth paying the money for. Breakfast is excellent. Public parking (paid) is around the corner. Personnel is friendly. If you are looking for a no nonsense stay in Rotterdam this could be the place for you

I stayed one night in November at the Tulip Inn while on a business trip. The rooms are clean and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The wi-fi is charged extra by the hotel and the rates are very high - especially for a business traveller who can't do without internet. I was given a room with a view of the river and the Erasmus bridge and that is definitely spectacular. Breakfast was quite good. Overall the hotel is quite average and ok for a very short stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river and bridge

Very friendly staff, good bar, clean and a very good location right next to the Erasmus bridge. Room was a tad on the small side but we got it for €50 so probably a budget room or something.

Only bad point was the rooms aren't that sound proof.

Overall a pleasant stay, would go back.
