Hotel Rotterdam
Ranked #24 of 55 Hotels in Rotterdam
Reviewed 28 April 2013

Possibly due to the strength of the Euro against the pound, the hotel wasn't seen as particularly good value for money, even before the shortcomings encountered, plus with the tired decor it wouldn’t rank as matching the [four?] stars claimed.

The decor in the bedroom was fading and somewhat tired, with flaking paint off the ceiling and chipped skirting board. However, as far as sleep comfort; unfortunately the single bed, placed against one wall, meant the mattress was becoming unevenly worn down [apparently as it hadn’t been turned or even renewed in a while] so this prevented a good night’s sleep…although the room at the back did avoid any main road traffic noise.

The evening meal was pleasant enough, but the main course fish fillet part was quite small….so again not really value for the money paid…. The buffet breakfast was adequate.

Finally, the check out was farcical, as the receptionist tried claiming I was someone else who had [over] stayed two nights. So they then tried to charge again double what had already been paid [in full], when I arrived the previous night!

Room Tip: Choose one at the back away from main road noise...

I stayed two nights in a very reasonable room near the train station for an excellent price. It's not a four star at all, but a good hotel. My shower was a mess and breakfast personnel could improve their manners. For the same price I'd return anytime.

Firstly for the price paid, which was at the very low end of the scale I can have no complaints. Yes the hotel is tired/old in appearance. It does seem to have gone through a renovation of sorts which was the addition of large plasma TV's which were not in fitting with everything else. Stayed here for the location nr rail station but its also a short walk into the city which makes the price all the better. Breakfast was ok, usual fare of cereal, yoghurt, bread and cheese. Overall it's not the Ritz but was good value all the same

The hotel is located nicely, only 5 min from Rotterdam city center and train station by foot. Breakfast was ok and the shared facilities were nice. However, the room was seriously worn down with bathroom door not closing properly and super thin windows that let all the noise inside from the busy street in front. Also the room was very dirty, there was even small hair on the bathroom wall.. a lot of it (disgusting). It looked like no one had wiped the tiles for a very long time.

Wifi was good and the staff was very nice. Room was spacious with a tiny closet. A very basic hotel. Could be better with a little update and cleaning. Some booking site said the hotel has a fitness room yet there wasn't one.

You can easily reach the hotel from airport by taking the airport bus to Rotterdam Centraal and then walk 5 minutes to hotel.

Ok, ok, ok! Many of the previous reviews have been quite scathing of this hotel. However, I can only say it as it is and this place is amazing for the price. The staff at the reception, and the bar, were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food in the restaurant was also very nice indeed and excellent value for money. The breakfast was very nice indeed, albeit of limited choice (but plenty to go at). The room was spacious and clean but sadly did smell somewhat musty. After an excellent meal in the restaurant, and a couple of glasses of wine, I slept like a log. Great value and an excellent location - just a short walk from Rotterdam Central train station. Off you are on a budget I challenge you to find anything better.

Positives: big room, powerful shower, slightly cheaper (but not much), looks nice from the outside. Negatives: grey, characterless, moody staff, no fresh fruit for breakfast, no toaster, lumpy mattresses, noisy air conditioning with a room thermostat that stays a constant 18 degrees regardless of whether you turn it up to 35 degrees or down to zero, feels like an Eastern European hotel before the breakdown of Communism. There are much better hotels in Rotterdam for just a little more money.
