Really helpful, friendly and caring staff. The hotel was well maintained and of a good standard. The location was excellent to explore the city and near the main shopping and night life. A really good stay and excellent value. The room was small but that's okay for a single room. It had a iron and ironing board plus mini fridge,...

I attended this hotel on the weekend of the Rotterdam marathon. As a result we were looking for a good location and of reasonable value considering it being a busy weekend in the city. The staff were helpful and attentive. Breakfast was decent and the room had everything you would want (tv tea coffee etc) and the bathroom was modern...

Was somewhat surprised at how good this hotel was for the money. Tea & coffee, good selection of English speaking channels,nice modern bedroom,friendly staff who let us leave our car parked past checkout (car parking is charged separately). Didn't have breakfast so can't comment but would definitely recommend; good location

I booked the Hotel van Walsum for a 1 night stay whilst we were on a mini cruise from Hull to Rotterdam. The coach from the Europort dropped us off at Central Station in Rotterdam at 9.50am. We were all provided with a free city map by the driver and it took us only a couple of minutes to plan...

The Van Walsum is a nice place in a fairly convenient location just off the number 4 tram route (southbound) from the station. Incidentally if you`re ever visiting the city we recommend buying a "Rotterdam Welcome card" which gives free travel on the trams (and the buses and the Metro) plus discounts at most popular tourist sites like the Zoo...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We were first given one of the older rooms but asked for (and reveived) a renovated room on the 4th floor. Needless to say the switch was well worth it. Breakfast was above expectations, plenty of choice, good stuff! The hotel is located very close to main attractions such as musea, restos,...

The hotel is within walking distance to the ferry dock going to Kinderdijk. It is close to some nice restaurants. The hotel staffs were friendly and provided some good information for our one day stay in Rotterdam. I would agree with other reviewers that this hotel needs some new furnitures and TVs.

We stayed for just one night but enjoyed it. Our room was small but comfortable and the service was very friendly. I couldn't find anything wrong with this place. Maybe because it was just for one night.

A very nice hotel within walking distance of Rotterdam's attractions. It's a 15-20 min walk from the train station but there are buses and trams that can take you there if you have bags. We had a room with a small balcony overlooking the gardens that was very cute. The room was clean and comfortable, the floors are probably 100...
