Recent guest reviews

We checked in very easily to this hotel. The staff at the desk were pleasant. We got up to our room which was large. Very high ceilings with beautiful gold trim. Unfortunately the room may have had a smoker or a pet before us, as the room had an interesting smell. The bathroom was small with the shower over the bath. The pressure of the shower was quite low. BEWARE the bath is extremely slippery, my husband fell and hit his head. The bed was low, and the mattress needed to be flipped as there was a big dip in the middle where lots of travellers before us have slept. Our room faced the road, and during the night we heard every noise. If you are thinking of staying here request a room away from the road. Car parking is available for 15 euro per day The breakfast which is included is simple; bacon, scrambled eggs, backed beans and pancakes, as well as a selection of bread and pastries with sweet and savoury options. Coffee machine is excellent, as well as fresh fruit. We found the 24hr reception difficult as you need to buzz for entry, and are then forced into small talk. Location is good. A short walk from the centre of town. When we return to Rotterdam we will look for different accomodation.

Stayed here for one night driving across Europe. Judging by previous reviews we were expecting a beautifully decorated traditional room. However, it was a bit more like an elderly person's residence. Quite pricy too. Staff weren't overly friendly. Unfortunately I wouldn't rush back. Car park is a bit of a palaver to get to, we were given a key to open and close the garage door but weren't told we had to give it back, so the morning after a few people were waiting to get their car out as the hotel didn't have a spare key for the garage door. Very embarrassing!

The hotel is not too big, just right. Their own parking area is great. Front desk is 24 hours and very friendly. Rooms really are smallish and dated and if you don't have one with airconditioning, it does get warm on a warm summer evening. But honestly, it hardly ever is too hot in Holland... and the room is clean. The hotel does have a bar area and a cosy garden where you can enjoy a drink. Very nice on the above said summer night. Breakfast okay. Location is good, close to City center and some nice restaurants and bars close by. I would say this hotel is good for one night and if you intend to only be in the room for sleep only.

The Staff is the key ingredient to the flavor of the Hotel Van Walsum. The staff is brilliant and friendly. It is truly home away from home. The bonus is the location and food. The public transportation is in waling distance and the breakfast is brunch.

This is what we find a family run hotel in the centre of Rotterdam. The owner gave us a warm welcome and informed us well what to do in Rotterdam. The rooms are not big but all the facilities we needed where there. The Wifi was good. The breakfast was excellent. We loved the little garden!!

We were surprised about the loaction. Nice bars and shops around. Very helpfull staff. Good size room and excelent breakfast in the lovely garden. Fast WIFI connection in the room. We used the car parking of the hotel (15,-) much cheaper than to park on the street. We will be back!!

friendly helpful staff, good location, good breakfast, clean comfortable rooms. You get all you need for a reasonable price. you can reach all attractions within walking distance. Also make tea and coffee in your room.

This hotel is in a great central location the excellent staff offered us free parking for our motorcycles most hotels charge for this service the rooms were excellent and clean staff advised us where to eat and drink thanks for a great stay

The staff at this hotel were efficient and helpful. Our room was a good size, and well-appointed, with a wet room and tea-making facilities. However the window was high up, so nothing much could be seen. The buffet breakfast was good, with a wide selection. Bicycles can be stored in the back garden, which is secure but not covered from the thunderstorms!

We stayed at Hotel van Walsum as a group of filmmakers attending the International Film Festival Rotterdam and having a workshop inside the hotel itself. The location is fairly central (a 15-min walk from de Doelen). The rooms and apartments we were lodged in were clean and comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly, always available to assist with all requests with a smile on their face. They also helped us promptly and impeccably in a difficult situation, when one of our colleagues had a health problem. I warmly recommend it to whoever looks for a budget but welcoming and well-located accommodation in Rotterdam.
