I visit many of the Van der Valk chain, this one is my regular hotels. I visited this hotel along with many of my co-workers. Rooms are a good size, breakfast is very good, staff are friendly. I will be back again during December.

Good, clean, easy to reach and plenty of parking space. If you're like me you like to workout their is a David Lloyd gym next door which is excellent. You have to pay but at least you have access to a very good gym with pool. Downside to hotel its isolated so if you want to go into town you... More

Stayed in this hotel now several times and it's getting better with it's service and hospitality. Good evening meal cooked with quality, but not expensive and a free drink in the bar. There is a David Lloyd fitness centre and spa next door and has the best of equipment. Free parking and it's only 5 minutes drive from the City... More

We stayed here for part of a business trip. We had great expectations as other Van Der Valk hotels on this trip were spectacular. Very dusty room, overly expensive restaurant and slightly aggressive staff. Whether this is a reflection on Rotterdam or not, we have yet to find out. We won't be back!

Stayed here for 10 days in August and have to say was impressed with how the hotel looked after us all during that time. Breakfast catered for all tastes and the restaurant, while on the slightly expensive side, provided fantastic meals in the evenings. I liked the fact you could get free coffee all day and all night.There's a zoo... More

If you must visit Rotterdam, our reason was to meet our friends who were travelling there, then this is one of the better places to stay. Front desk girls are loud and scary as though they anticipate you running away with the silver, but restaurant is suave and well set. Suite is spacious, beds large and comfy but shower ordinary....

Good hotel. Clean room.s and WiFi that works. What more could a business user want? Oh and the pancakes and bacon for breakfast were also good. Meeting rooms also good sizes and plenty of them. Good for if you are doing syndicate sessions.

The Van Der Valk hotel has more to offer than you might first think and is very well placed for business or surrounding Europoort. Modern amenities and well appointed rooms with good wifi and good customer service throughout. Recommended for business visitors .

This hotel was chosen due to locality to the highway and not recommended if you plan to visit Rotterdam center. It is a good way from the city. Seems to be very many local tourists/visitors.
