Nice hotel, we were up in the sloped roof attic room. Very spacious, all amenities, no complaints. Friendly staff. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on that. Quiet, no real traffic noise. Safe in room.

My first impression of the hotel as we walked up the sidewalk was "this will do". After a week here (to see the tulips), I was in love with this place and its staff. Tony, one of the owners, brought me a coffee as my husband checked in. All week long he was full of advice, friendly tips on restaurants,...

Although the rooms are average - decently sized but furnishing is a bit dated, this is a great choice for a short stay in Rotterdam close to the heart of the city. There is a private parking nearby, some 100 meters back at Mathenesserlaan 177 - be aware that if you have a large car you'll find the parking entrance...

We recently spent one night at the Hotel van Walsum. We were able to check in early (around 11 a.m.) without any problems. We arrived by train and walked from the station (an easy 15 minute walk). The hotel is in a nice, residential area. The tram is nearby but we walked everyone on our short visit. Our room was...

I stayed at the Hotel van Walsum because I was doing a course at the nearby Erasmus MC. The location is very good: the hotel is at five minutes walking from the Erasmus MC, and easy to reach by public transport. I rather enjoyed my stay: the room was well-equipped and not exactly cramped, staff was friendly and the breakfast...

This is my second time at Van Walsum. I work occasionally at Erasmus MC and it's just a five minute walk to the main entrance. The hotel is not luxurious and doesn't have too many amenities because it's a simple hotel. But they do know how to treat people decently and kindly that more than makes up for anything else....

This hotel is exactly what you need and great value for money!! The staff were super friendly and the best bars and restaurants are a stones throw away!
