The Hilton Rotterdam is one of the finest 5 star properties of Rotterdam. It is perfectly located in the city center of Rotterdam and lies on the Coolsingel, next to the Hofplein which makes this Hilton suitable for both business travelers and tourists wishing to visit this city or for shopping. As you may know, Rotterdam is just great for shopping and all the main shopping areas are just within walking distance. Be sure to visit the Market Hall, the locals are pretty proud of that market and gorgeous it is!
This hotel is huge featuring 254 comfortable rooms and suites. You will notice as soon as you enter! Although the building itself is quite old, the entire hotel has been renovated in 2013. As most Hiltons, the reception/lobby area is spacious and luxurious! Everything in here looks brand new! I was in love with the overall decoration and style throughout the hotel, it is just beautiful and of a true 5 star level. The cozy sitting areas with fireplaces are great to hang out. Check-in staff was very professional and told us everything we needed know about the hotel and surrounding areas.
The rooms at the Hilton Rotterdam are beautiful (are there bad Hilton rooms anyway?). Again, they look brand new. I especially liked the beds, they are very comfortable and I had a great night’s sleep! I appreciated the small typical Dutch touches such as the decoration in the room. Other 5 star amenities are the Nespresso coffee machine, bathrobes and a Bose Docking Station. The small couch in the room was perfect for surfing on my iPad! The marble bathroom had a bath tub and single sink. All in all, great rooms here!
The modern Stadshal Bar & Restaurant offers a modern kitchen and the decoration is trendy. The brasserie styled menu is varied and they use fresh products and ingredients. Breakfast is offered here as well and the buffet style breakfast was amazing. I could not ask for a better start of the day!
Our room was located on one of the executive floors which means we had access to the beautiful executive lounge. The lounge itself is one of the nicest Hilton Lounges I have seen. What a nice place to relax and have a great evening! From 6pm – 8.30pm small bites are offered. Non-alcoholic cold and hot drinks are available all day long. Alcoholic drinks such as wine, beer and some spirits are available from 6pm – 10pm. I do recommend upgrading to an executive room. It is worth your money and you won’t be sorry! Guests can also enjoy a small breakfast buffet here during the morning.
If you are into working out, a full size fitness center is available 24hrs. The gym is located on the ground floor and is pretty spacious with a lot of day light which is great as most fitness centers are located in some sort of basement.
The Hilton Rotterdam definitely is one of my favorite hotels in Rotterdam! What makes this hotel so special is the service they provide. Staff is always helpful and every request has been taken care of with a smile! Thumbs up and highly recommended!
