“Warning - Don't stay here!”
Reviewed 19 December 2007

Hotel is currently undergoing renovations and is in a terrible state. It does not deseve the two star rating that Expedia gave it. Stairs/hallways are dingy looking, and there was construction dust everywhere. Location was okay near a tram station), but generally, the neighbourhood is a little trashy.

The rooms were spacious and clean enough, but very, VERY basic. The "official" pictures are deceiving - they make the hotel look way nicer than it is. The staff were friendly enough, but it didn't make up for the lack of overall quality. Perhaps once the renovations are complete, that wil change.

For the price you pay, you can probably get a room at Eurohotel Centrum or the Best Western Pax Hotel, both of which are much nicer and centrally located. Some other people stayed at the Eurohotel Centrum and they enjoyed it.

I stayed here on the May 20th, 2007 and found the hotel to be located just a 5 minute walk from Central Station. The front desk staff were very very pleasant and helped me with my luggage to my room. Do not let the price put you off, this hotel is a bargain for sure. I would of paid much more for the room as it was a single, new bathroom, and very quiet. The breakfast wasn't the most elaborate, but contained enough cold cuts and good cheeses and fresh fruit. If you stay here, you will be very close to all that Rotterdam has to offer.

CONS:

1) small room facing the hotel's junkyard, (there were tyres, pieces of wood, cardboards strewn about!! and the room got a very dirty balcony as well)

2) no tea making facility, (no kettle, not cups are provided. nothing in the fridge bar either, which makes it very inconvenient, especially if you want a drink at night)

3) no pen not paper provided

4) no elevator!! VERY STEEP stairs (imagine trying to haul your 15 kilo bag up the stairs..NIGHTMARE)

5) was given bed sheets with a hole in it. ( very poor standard for a 3* 'hotel')

6) the toilet refuses to flush properly!! (uurrgghh)

7) Breakfast is served in an area which faces the junkyard, which makes it very unappealing (mind you, the dining area has got big glasses as walls, so u really do get to in the midst of all the junk)

8) very poor, if not rude service. There was a middle age lady who obviously have the shout-at-them-in-dutch-until-they-(--)-and-leave-you-alone mentality.

Booked through expedia, but room looks SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT from the pictures shown.

Good: slightly cheaper than other hotels, but it effectively ruined my holiday.

BAD: no kettle, not so secure doors, sheets with holes, poor service. and the list goes on.

avoid if possible.

Reviewed 13 November 2006

We were invited to a medical event in Rotterdam, 4 people stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. Because there would be partying all over the time we decided to take a cheap and simple hotel we just could enter for sleeping and breakfast.

The hotel is located at Gravedijkwal, which is a main road that is a little offside of town but heavily frequented by cars also throughout the night. Our colleagues booked a DeLuxe room with bathttub that is a little bigger that the standard room and costs you 10 euro extra. But what is the deal staying in a hotel where you can hardly sleep? If you book, make sure you get a standard room on the garden side, though you look onto trashed wood, rusty car parts and stuff like that. But we did not use our balcony at all because it was too cold and there were some full plastic rubbish bags and building material on it as well.

The heating pipes made a horrible ringing sound that does not stop when you turn the heat knob, so I went for padding the pipes with towels and bed stuff because the ringing made me go nuts in the night.

The hotel itself is not very tidy but the room service does OK although they took away my wife´s pyjama by accident. They later found it in the hotels laundry sacks. Towels and bed sheets are changed every day, the breakfast is good and the rooms are overall clean with little exceptions to the bathroom which had a very ugly ceiling, The shower offers only few drops of water that changes its temperature from very hot to VERY cold every twenty seconds. It was impossible to adjust the temperature for ones need for longer than that period.

Now all this sounds generally bad but I have to admit that one very good thing about the hotel was a) the price and b) the extremely friendly and helpful staff that speaks excellent english and helps you whenever they can.

As a conclusion I can not really recommend this hotel to anyone who is sensitive to loud noises and run down places. If you want to save money, go there but get a standard room and bring your earplugs.

Important notice to those with mobility handicaps: Stay away from this hotel as it has no lift and very very steep stairways.

Hotel room clean/comfortable, room overlooked run down apartments to rear and side, "gardens" full of rubbish, old car wheels/bikes and over grown with weeds, same view from breakfast room which was neat/tidy and clean, breakfast was good, staff friendly, the problems are very run down area, felt very unsafe walking back even from the tram stop 200 yards away, clientele are mainly eastern european men working in area, but saw some students and business people who seemed unimpressed, no parking outside for hotel have to pay (very expensive) in meters or as we did use a bit of waste ground 500 yds away behind riun down property on otherside of road, would not feel safe walking around there at night, price for this was 28 euros for4 nights, probably because it had a padlock on the gate, the wash basin plug was missing, although we asked for one we didnt get one, this hotel is definetly not for tourists or middleaged/elderly/disabled people.
