Grand Hotel Central
Ranked #45 of 52 Hotels in Rotterdam
Reviewed 14 August 2012

It was terrible hotel. I am not going to book this hotel never ever anymore. Lousy rooms, smell is very bad and rooms were full of some small bed bugs...aargh.
No internet service in rooms and not even hangers in room...? How about that...
I really think that hotel has a very bad mold problem.

Room Tip: No good rooms at all.

The hotel has a good positioning in Rotterdam, but that's almost all good things I can say.
Simple and small room, almost clean but with a bad smell in the room and on the hall.
Decent breakfast.

It's not awfull, but it's not a place that you would desperatly want to come back.

The location was excellent, near the central station. The breakfast was pretty good and the rooms are clean. However, please be aware that the rooms may be different though they are the same type. We stayed there for two nights and in two different rooms with twin beds, and the room on the lower floor has a much more smaller bathroom than the other one, and it's windowless. Plus, there was no mirror in that room except in the bathroom. Becises all that, we enjoyed our stay there.

The hotel, in which even Jimi Hendrix took his nightquarter someday in 1967, as is documented in a picture above the reception is located very nicely near the main station and next to the famous old Luxor Theater. It is surrounded by some nice little bars and shopping malls. The personel at the reception was quite friendly and uncomplicated.
The breakfast buffet was very good and diverse also.
The only disappointing thing was, that the room was not very cosy and there were no real special features. The toilet seat was not correctly adjusted, the TV was very small and oddly placed. There was some disturbing noise from a party almost the whole night through, i hopefully suppose that this was due to a special situation and not the normal routine..
To resume: it was quite ok. I would book it again, because of the price and the location!

Pros - good location for walking around Rotterdam and the continental breakfast was fine.
Cons - Only shear curtains on our windows, VERY bright signs next door so it was bright as day all night. Lots of shouting from the street and construction nearby started before 7am. There were flys in our room when we arrived but it was too hot to shut the windows. The shower head was one of those hand-held ones and it would spin around and shoot water everywhere. The room was ugly and felt grungy. The hotel lobby smelled of smoke. They had no where to put our bicycles except the back of the restaurant (this hotel was booked for us by a bike tour company).

Room Tip: Make sure the room has dark curtains - only one of our 3 rooms did!
