“We appreciated that due to change of plans we were able to check in a bit earlier. The room was small but otherwise practical, e.g. there was space to put your luggage under the bed when not in use. Really liked the design of the entire room, especially the bathroom. Comfy bed, TV with Netflix and good speakers.”

“Good if basic hotel if you're prioritising location which was great - 10 minutes from Rotterdam Centraal and within walking distance of most of the tourist destinations. Compact but functional space.”

When we arrived, we were offered a coffee and the staff was very helpful with the check-in and check-out. Very nice and also unique rooms. That's all you need for a short but wonderful stay. We enjoyed it immensely.”

“Really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The rooms are amazing, and the design of the in-suite bathtub is very unique and enjoyable. The location is also great as it was in the city center but in a quiet area. From the staff, i got aquainted with Stan and he was super friendly and helpful whenever anything was needed. Thanks for a lovely stay.”
