Thon Hotel Rotterdam

Reviewed 10 July 2013

One of the worst hotels we ever stayed,stuff was helpful but we could see on theyr faces they're doing that just because they have to.The elevator is shaking and making noises like its gonna fall and we gonna die in there .Room seemed to be clean but it wasnt,the more we checked the state of the room we discovered dusts everywhere and the room we had,didnt have a view.Through the huge window we could only see another wall and windows.Shower was like from previous century!!!Duvet was making noises that much we couldnt sleep,we make a move and we woke up.
If u are a looking for a cup of hot water,you wont get it cause bar is simply closed at 10.00pm !!! And during the day we didnt even want to go there,cause whoever sits is a local customer and looks at u like are an alien. I didnt like the breakfast,but my friend was saying it was okey.

Room Tip: Make sure they give u the room on riverside.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The view from my room was spectacular, and I spent a lot of time looking out the window, watching the passing boat traffic on the River Maas. The room was clean and comfortable, and quiet. Enjoyed the use of the coffee maker.

Good points: Clean, good public transport connections (easy access to city center and other attractions - you have tram 7 in front of the hotel and the subway at a 5 minutes walk), nice location (not crowded, nice view over the river), good breakfast (it is a decent breakfast with all you need - don't expect fancy).

Not so good points: The room is small, but if you are not staying for long, i don't think you will mind it. Yes, it is small, the bed is smaller than average but it is clean and decent. The ladies at the reception desk are not that helpful - don't ask them for directions or public transport because they will not know what to tell you (at least two of them didn't).

Highlights:
-Tram 7 takes you from the central station to the hotel. You hop off at the end of the line.
- You can buy tickets for public transport (for 1 day, 2 days etc - in Rotterdam the transportation cards are for each day, not for 12 hours, or 24 hours) in the central station, over the counter, or from the machines, but you have to pay with Maestro.
- Check your card in and out every time you hop on and hop off the bus, tram or metro. Otherwise your card will block and you will not be able to use it anymore.

Stayed here this year instead of Inntels across the road. I was initially put in a shoebox sized room, then on seeing the other 2 rooms I booked for friends, asked to be moved. The hotel staff were very helpful and moved me to a superior room which was a much better size. Overall hotel was clean and ok for the money. Situated near the bridge on the waterside.

Good hotel in nice area near the centar of the city. Just across the bridge is bussiness center. Rooms are nice with big bed and tv set. You have free coffee and tea in the room. Breakfast is very good and its buffet kind of type. On winter heating is very good. Restoran on ground floor is with basic meals, nothing special. Hotel don have any other activities.

Stayed here for 2 nights
Rooms were fine but a little on the small side.
Cant comment on the food as we didn't have breakfast due to the scandalously high price
Location good views of the River Mass and Erasmus bridge,but a little out of the way for the centre of Rotterdam(although tram 7 goes from outside hotel)

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the bridge/river
