"Hotel is good and very well located, but a few inconveniences marred the stay"
Location: it's located about 10-15 walk straight from the main train station main entrance, plus it has a tram stop across the street, a metro station right next door and bus stops next to it so it's very well connected. Room: room was clean and big. Shower was a little bit weird because it was a tub with the shower on the wide side so it was a bit difficult to control the water from overpowering the shower curtain which had a little bit of mold (photo attached). However, when we arrived the windows were open and the room was very cold. It was at that moment 8 degrees celsius outside but very windy and we had to turn on the heat to make it comfortable. Furthermore, we almost got sick because we missed one window and it stayed open all night. The room had thick curtains and the window partitioned in several sections, we closed all that we found open but there was one tiny corner very high that we missed and we had the cold air coming in all night. Next day my husband had to get on a chair, set in a precarious way because of the furniture around, to reach that window (photo attached). The other big inconvenience is that they charge a deposit on your card when you arrive and you just have to trust that they'll refund it to you once you leave. It's a hassle you shouldn't have to deal with when travelling. Also, we had to pay the city tax upon departure but they also wanted to stick us with another charge labeled "service charge". We noticed before signing and they immediately apologized and removed it. Seemed they might have tried to see if we would notice or not. The hotel is very nice and has a cruise ship feel to it because it's very big and has restaurants and bars. Overall we had a good stay, but it left us with a bad taste, wouldn't stay here again. It has free wi-fi in all the hotel.
"Practical. Convenient. Value."
Traveled into Rotterdam by rail, needed somewhere central as reason for being in town was the city's marathon. The Bilderberg was a short walk from the railway station, and from a broad range of cafes, bars and restaurant. My single room was practical rather than luxurious, but then that's in keeping with all things Dutch: it was efficient, and not overly expensive. (Didn't dine within so can't comment on food.)
We haven't been to the Bilderberg for several years and in that time it has undergone a wonderful renovation. Our room was very quiet, quite spacious with a comfortable bed, excellent wi-fi signal, large television with a large selection of channels, and a very attractive/functional bathroom. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The buffet breakfast was delicious and presented well. My husband particularly liked the salmon and the smoked trout. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant for dinner. The location can't be beat - 2 stops on the tram (easily accessible with luggage) from Rotterdam Central train station. It is just blocks from museums, lively streets, restaurants, and the waterfront. We will definitely make this our Rotterdam "home".
Nice clean hotel in Rotterdam. Big room with a nice view and comfy bed. Walking distance to museums and the port. We didn't find a great deal to do in Rotterdam for the day but the city and architecture are stunning.
Visited this excellent hotel very recently. Within a ten minute walk from all the main attractions. We had a room on the sixth floor in one of the towers. Beautifully insulated we heard no noise whatsoever. The floor to ceiling windows offered a magnificent view over the city. A well furnished room with an excellent and recently renovated bathroom which boasted a night light meaning that you didn't have to switch on a light in the middle of the night. The only downside that we could see was a lack of shelf space in what was otherwise a lovely bathroom. The breakfast was very good offering a wide variety of delicious dark brown breads. We are hoping to return to Rotterdam in the autumn and will most certainly stay in the Bilderberg Park Hotel again.
