“If this is international standards, local flavors as they advertise, they have missed the mark by 40 years”
Reviewed 31 October 2010

The single rooms are a shoebox, the halls narrow and dusty. Breakfast was included, but is a minimal buffet with poor choice. The location is interesting and a good view of the water and city line, that is about all the good I will say
I cannot beleive that my company would consider this a business hotel to bring employees or customers to. I would consider it a second rate tourist hotel without any international standards whatsoever.

Central location, but the facilities are very ordinary. Arriving on a Friday we found the place swarming with conference delegates. Although we had asked for a room with a river view at the time of booking, we were allocated a poky back room overlooking the fire escape. Had to pay a 10 euro supplement to upgrade to a larger room with a view. On the first floor we were disturbed by noise from the street, although this may not be a problem on higher floors.

Room decor is quite unpleasant, and the double bed was 2 singles pushed together, with separate bedding (not even a shared duvet). Not enough wardrobe space, and tv balanced precariously on top of the minibar.

Breakfast buffet is dull - at least it's available until 11 at weekends though. And the staff are helpful enough.

This is my second stay at the Tulip inn and I had a very comfortable stay. The receptionist was very helpful and polite, and because there were renovation works going on in the lobby I was given a free breakfast for the inconvenience. To be honest I did not hear the workers at all except a bit during breakfast.

The room was very clean and modern. A kettle and plenty of tea and coffee sachets on the table. The bathroom was well decorated and the extra large bath tub was a bonus!

I would definately stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights specifically to watch the Tour de France Grand Depart. We had one of the small rooms at the back of the hotel - the large ones overlooking the Mass I believe are much bigger. However, the room was very clean and the bed comfortable and all we needed for a short stay. Breakfast is great too - continental + scrambled eggs, bacon and chipolatas on offer as hot breakfast buffet every day. The bar was friendly and sitting outside overlooking the river was a nice way to relax in the evening.

The best thing about the hotel is its location. It is at the bottom of the Erasmus Bridge and within a few minutes walk of the Metro, which was really great for us. A 3 day ticket was 12 Euros and it enabled us to travel further than we would have otherwise. A trip to the top of the Euromast was also well worthwhile - it was under 10 Euros. You can book abseil too, which had we had more time I would have loved as it looked great fun.

Stayed here for 1 night. Check in was good as we arrived over 4 hour early but they allowed us to check in immediately. We were also given a free upgrade to a much bigger room that overlooked the Mass. The room was spacious and very nice. It had a large comfortable bed & a balcony although it was too cold to actually stay out on it. There were tea-making facilities in the room as well as a mini bar. The bathroom is on the small size for the size of the room.
The bar was very nice & had an intimate feel too it. The drinks although reasonably priced the glass of wine I received was small which didn’t help the fact it was served in a oversized glass & the bar girl just guessed & poured a measure in, but she definitely aired on the lesser side.
This hotel is very central to everything but it is a good walk from central station so I would recommend either a number 7 Tram which stops outside or a taxi.
Breakfast was included in the rate & we found it to be excellent. There were hot food items like bacon sausage scrambled eggs & boiled eggs as well as cheeses meats breads toast etc.
All in all this is a very nice city hotel & we certainly would stay here again.

I've stayed here many times. They have great beds and really nice duvets. This was sort a transit hotel that my company used whilst we were building a ship in Rotterdam. The rooms are a little odd though. Some are quite large and others tiny. The ones facing the Maas river seem to be the best, however; they are a comfy though. The staff is great and the restaurant isn't bad. Continental breakfast, they would pack a go box for you ,though some of our Italian collegues capitalized on this and packed enough for lunch too!

If you happen to stay here don't miss Granny's Grill down the road. Best ribs anywhere! Patrick the owner and Fred the manager are first class. Quite possibly the best food I've ever had anywhere! The location is great, avoid the Cafe Grotte, La Cave and other places that have alluring Eastern European girls standing outside unless you are independantly wealthy. Loo's on the corner is really nice in the somertime as they have outdooor seating.
