This place is cheap, but it is beautiful in that they do not hide the fact. In fact, Hendrix stayed here as did Marilyn. It is one of the only buildings in Rotterdam to survive WWII and so is revered in some ways. Rooms are simple, plumbing is ok, water is hot and there's always help at the desk. I...

Waaaay over priced for the accommodation you get. Wifi is useless, shower leaks, no cold water in basin, funny smell in bathroom, cold breakfast restaurant. If this was cheap, I might make my peace with it, but won't recommend it to a friend.

I was here with a work colleague. At fist, both of us received terrible rooms (noise from the heating pipes, strong odor from the freshly painted bathroom). We asked to change the rooms and the girl from the reception told us the classical "we are full, no other room available". The other rooms we received were "ok-ish". Acceptable at most....

Just about everything was a little or very depressing and dreary. There were some fairly tough looking guys hanging around in the lobby and leaning up against the elevator door. Of the four rooms that I was shown one had a terrible smell. They all had holes in the walls, chipped paint, flaking plaster. The room I took had a...

Door handle to bathroom not fixed on and not enough room to move! Glad we only had to stay for one night. Breakfast okay but problems with the...

You get what you pay for, suitable for friends who don't plan to spend much time in the room. WiFi worked ok, beds were comfy enough and the location is ideal. The downsides were the facilities, the noise. The rooms are old but adequately maintained. Bathroom was poor but that was to be expected for the price.

Me and my boyfriend booked a room at this hotel from a booking website where everything looked nice for a 3 star hotel. However when we arrived it seemed we had traveled back in time 30 years. Everything looked old and it was quite dirty (at least our room). We could see there were stains on the floor carpet that...
