Pleasant hotel not too far from the center with ample,free, parking - an important consideration where city center parking has become frightfully expensive. If you're only in town for a short time 24-48 hours an OV card is not necessarily a viable option because of the initial fixed cost. Our room was spacious and comfortable and more than acceptable, although...

Bit dated, but still clean enough. Some stains on carpet, but spotless bathroom. Room didn't cool below 23 degrees, while outside it was much cooler. Dinner not very good. Breakfast is nice. Especially the fresh rolls, which were extraordinary. Stayed in spacious suite, with seperate living room, toilet, bathroom and bedroom. View on the Blijdorp zoo. Free parking.

Nice bed, very comfy. It was far too hot though and I tossed and turned all night. Bathroom was nice. In all it was quite a stylish, trendy hotel.

I have stayed here 4 times and each time the room has been pleasant & spacious. This time I went for...

Large modern hotel with room to match and spacious shower. Tea and coffee in the room. Free WiFi but code needed from reception. The breakfast was above average with a good selection of bread, cheeses and warm food and great fresh fruit. The only minus point of the stay was the bar. Drinks were not allowed to be put on...

Nice hotel. We used to live in Rotterdam and now needed a hotel for one night. This hotel has an excellent location near to the highway and the Blijdorp Zoo (great Zoo!!). Rooms are modern, bathroom is modern and service is good (a special thanks to Said the barman!) Good choice if you need to bein this area!

Large group stayed in the hotel and my good friend from a locked room had his laptop and phone stolen. Hotel wanted to do nothing and when speaking to others 2 other laptops had also been stolen in the same week!! Poor show from the hotel when items are being taken from locked rooms.
