This hotel wows you when you enter the lobby and it continues to impress throughout the stay. The staff are professional and efficient. While the hallways are rather dark (but visually appealing) the rooms are bright. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is large.
We were offered the opportunity to upgrade our room to an Executive room for an additional 60.00 euros a night. That gave us free in room WiFi, breakfast and access to the Executive Lounge. While 60.00 seemed high, the buffet breakfast was 28.50 per person and WiFi is not free in the rooms. So we did upgrade as the WiFi cost was more than 20.00 a day. The breakfast was good although it does not change from day to day. The Executive Lounge has a great view and is nicely appointed.
This hotel is located across the street from Rotterdam Central which makes it very convenient for travels. While we did not notice any noise from the station, we heard quiet a bit of noise from the offices above the hotel rooms. As we were on the top floor of the hotel we heard the office workers overhead during the work week.
The hotel does have a frequent stay program, however, you must book directly through the hotel to use the program. For us, it was quiet a bit cheaper to use another hotel booking site so we were unable to benefit from the program. Frequent travelers will want to evaluate the pros and cons.
Overall, a nice hotel.
