"NIce on the outside, dark on the inside"
I am travelling frequently for business across Europe, so I can look back to quite a broad experience with middle class hotels. This time the choice of our travel department fell on the Parkhotel Bilderberg and a short look on their website didn't show any remarkable deficiencies. Even when arriving, the buidling looked quite nicely and modern. Also the intzerieur of the lobby and the restaurant promiseda good price-performance relation. Unfortunately this impression changed rapidly when entering the room. It turned out that the building must be from the 70's which has been renovated superficially. I suddenly remembered the old fashioned elevator, which had brought me to the 3rd floor. The rooms walls were made of old wooden panels and the room itself smelled muddy and full of stale air. Air condition was not available. I opened the window (30th of November!) which eased the pain a little, but made me freezing. The single bed matress was far too soft, the wardrobe too small to accomodate clothing for a three days trip. My personal "No-go - absolute killer" criteria for a hotel I had to experience at the next morning, when trying to take a shower. Water pressure close to zero and continuously changing water temperature. This is entirely unacceptable. SEcond and final reason for the bad rating. Braekfast price of 24,5€. Given the overall quality of the hotel I didn't take the risk. This price doesn't relate to the prioce range of the hotel and to me is absolutely ridiculous. Sorry, Blderberg Rotterdam, to become reasonable business hotel you have to improve a lot.
Very friendly staff and with comfortable rooms. Perfectly located in the center of town. I didn't use any of the fascilities other then my room so I cannot really comment any further. I would definitely stay here again.
"Stylish hotel "
The Bilderberg Parkhotel is both stylish and comfortable. The tower bedrooms are smart and well equipped. I particularly liked the Bluetooth connection allowing you to play music from your smartphone through high quality loudspeakers. Breakfast was good with a nice restaurant.
"great value if you appreciate location and do not need supermodern design"
I am systematically trying different hotels in Rotterdam each time I visit my daughter and this one scores high on location and friendliness of staff. The room faced towards an interior garden which made it nice and quiet except for the high pitched tone that periodically came from the heating pipe. The only drawback was an unidentifiable but not very pleasant smell in the bathroom.
"Great value with formidable location."
It was a very pleasant stay, with great style and comfort. The location of the hotel is strategic, near everything you need (museums, subway, grocery and all type of stores). Staff is very kind and helpful. The restaurant is great and breakfast is very good.
