“Great location and great service”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We stayed 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Rotterdam following a 14-day cruise . We were most impressed when we were told that a room was available and we could go ahead and check in when we arrived at the hotel about 8 a.m., after disembarking the ship. We didn't expect to be able to check in that early but had planned to just store our luggage while we went sightseeing for the day, so this was a welcome surprise. The location of the hotel was excellent, only a 10 minute walk from the train station, with a tram station immediately across the street. It was also in walking distance to many good restaurants and shopping. The breakfast buffet had a variety of satisfying items and was kept well stocked throughout the dining hours. The desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this location.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express - Central Station in Rotterdam, before and after our cruise. On our first visit, we arrived by train in the Central Station, and easily walked to the Holiday Inn with our suitcases. We enjoyed the breakfast, free WiFi, and the convenience of having the tram at the doorstep. In the morning, we easily rolled our suitcases onto the tram as there was only a small gap between the walkway and the tram. The tram took us across the Erasmus Bridge where we could see our ship waiting for us! We then walked the block to board our ship.
Three weeks later at the end of our cruise, we once again stayed at the Holiday Inn. This time after checking in we walked back to the Central Station and took the train to Haarlem for a day trip. The next morning after our breakfast, we were back to Central Station, where we took the train to Amsterdam for our flight home to Canada.
Yes, this hotel is "Central", for the trains, trams, and downtown Rotterdam, which are all within walking distance.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn express over the carnival weekend and I must say that I really liked the hotel. The staff were helpful; especially Han who is an absoulte star! I would definitely stay there again.

Only had one night here while visiting Rotterdam on business.

Very clean, modern. Air conditioning works as it should do. Staff friend and helpful.
Only negative was the soaps in bathroom were empty.
Breakfast was busy but still plenty of food and staff clearing up.

Will use again next time in area.

Located in the city centre and have easy access for public transportation. Good and clean hotel, friendly and helpful staffs. Breakfast is good variation. Nice simple lobby bar. The only access to go to lobby that we have to enter the building which seem no hotel inside.

Stayed over for one night only, but was truly impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, and the very polite staff. It's a new hotel and it shows. It would have been even better if they had a restaurant on site.

Ideal hotel is staying in Rotterdam, shiny on the outside and very clean and shiny inside. The rooms are shiny clean and fine. The food is as you expect in these hotels....cold continental breakfasts and vending machines in the evenings, but I have to say the staff are excellent.
The location is 5 minutes from the railway station and on the tram routes, there are several restaurants nearby and shopping is all about. Rotterdam was quite a surprise, much more eclectic and expressive than one would expect.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are fine and great for street scene watching....without undue noise as you can se...
