One of the best accommodations in the city, Hilton Rotterdam Hotel is a classic Hilton touch hotel located in a beautiful central area of the second largest city of Netherlands.
Even if you are in the center of the city you do not feel stressed and the atmosphere is very peaceful at this hotel Rotterdam.
Some of the rooms are facing a big roundabout for cars, trams and most important, bikes. In Rotterdam, most people use bikes for transportation. Obviously! It is Netherlands and bikes rule!
For me was a pleasure to look at rush hour how hundreds of bikes were swarming like ants in that roundabout! Young or old, men or women, in shirt or suit, everybody was on a bike! I looked at them for minutes and I was wondering when I will see this picture in every big city of Europe!
Hilton Rotterdam Hotel is located in the heart of the city, right near vibrant bars, cafes and restaurant.
Every iconic place is within walking distance to the accommodation and from Rotterdam Train Station to the hotel are no more than 10 minutes walk. The Casino, Luxor Theater and Markthall and other things to visit in Rotterdam are few walking minutes away from the accommodation.
What am I saying?! Actually from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the main point to start visit Netherlands or to visit Amsterdam to the hotel is about 30 minutes by train. Because in Amsterdam the accommodation is more expensive than in Rotterdam, you can check in at this hotel! The trains are very fast and also very often! If I remember correct, there is a train from the airport to Rotterdam every 30 minutes.
The rooms from Hilton Rotterdam Hotel are classic, clean and comfortable. The bed is comfy and big and in the room you have a small desk enough to open a laptop and write a quick email. The quality of the amenities is very good.
Don’t expect to luxurious interiors! You will not find them at this accomodation! In the room you can find what you need at medium level!
All the rooms are facing the city: some of them are facing a roundabout and other a pedestrian alley. At Hilton Rotterdam Hotel, we had a room facing the roundabout I was telling earlier. I had a very nice surprise in the morning when I have looked over the window: I saw few cars, some trams and hundred of bicycles; everybody on the bike was smiling and the atmosphere was very relaxing. It was like everybody was on holiday and not going to work!
