Great place, service and beds. Perfect location in Rotterdam and at a good price, like the breakfast! Nice building on a side streets and only 20 or so rooms make this a boutique hotel. Very friendly staff!

We stayed for a week at the Van Walsum during Marathon weekend (the marathon is a great experience, very well organized and completely flat to run). The hotel is very well situated and you can reach most mayor sights on foot. Tram and bus are right outside the door. A couple of nice bars and restaurant are just around the...

I stayed at the Hotel Van Walsum three times this year, June/August/October, for five nights each visit. It is very quiet, particularly with rooms facing the back of the street. The location is terrific - 10 minutes by taxi from the Centraal train station, a 10-minute walk to Erasmus Medical Center, but most importantly a 2-minute walk to one of...

Great area if you are in the city for Erasmus, still close to main streets and there is a supermarket 5 minute walk. Rotterdam quite boring for a tourist unless you are into museums… Don’t waste time on Binnenrote market. Very good Italian restaurant near the hotel called Spaghettata. Hotel is nice, good bar and breakfast area. There is a...

We loved our stay at the van Walsum. The rooms were great and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. We didn't have breakfast there, but went to a nearby restaurant. It is a good hotel to relax in as there are a couple of different sitting areas. We played cards with another couple in one of the areas. There...
