Spending the night in a boutique hotel, what does that mean? A boutique hotel has a luxurious, quirky and intimate atmosphere. These hotels are often small-scale, so that the staff can fully focus on the guests and the comfort of their stay.

TIP: discover even more great hotels in this handy overview.

1. Le Marin Boutique Hotel Rotterdam

At Le Marin you stay in rooms that come straight out of a home magazine. Think: black marble, shades of gray on the wall, luxurious textiles and an overall luxurious look. This is a nice contrast to the building itself, because the historic Henegouwerplein in Rotterdam West is the setting of this beautiful design city hotel.

I live in the area and often pass by this hotel, it looks chic but the atmosphere is homey and approachable.

Check out the prices and availability of Le Marin Boutique Hotel.


Henegouwerplein 58, 3021 PN Rotterdam


2. Room Mate Bruno Hotel

On the south side of the water you will find the cool hotel Room Mate Bruno. Here you sleep in colour-themed rooms that give futuristic design a new meaning.

Here you are fully equipped and you sleep in a vibrant part of Rotterdam, you are in the hippest restaurants or in the artsy cinema LantarenVenster in no time. Always nice to catch a movie and then dive into a hotel room.

Check out the prices and availability of Room Mate Bruno.

3. Supernova Hotel

Supernova Hotel is in my opinion one of the most beautiful hotels in Rotterdam. It is still a young hotel, but is certainly not inferior to the larger (or rather: older) players.

Here, too, you will find rooms that ooze design. Dark colours, intimate vibes, love it.

Check out prices and availability of Supernova hotel.


‘s-Gravendijkwal 68, 3014 EG Rotterdam


4. Hotel Unplugged

Echt het lekkerste bed ever bij Unplugged Hotel.

It doesn’t get more central than Hotel Unplugged. In the heart of the city, namely at Kabouter Buttplug, you will find this hip, modern, Scandinavian-feeling hotel.

The rooms have a relaxing atmosphere and are comfortably equipped. Sober colours with an eccentric edge here and there. What particularly appeals to me is that you can ‘unplug’ completely at such a busy location, because the hotel is set up for this. The concept has been well thought out and it shows.

Check out the prices and availability of Hotel Unplugged.


Eendrachtsplein 12, 3012 LA Rotterdam


5. Hotel âme

Just as central as Hotel Unplugged is Hotel âme, literally a 1-minute walk away. You only have to cross the street next to skate park Westblaak. Nice for skaters (just like me), because if you go on a skate trip you sleep here next to a nice skate spot.

Hotel âme is a young location, with a beautiful interior. Sober, earthy, inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian styles, but above all impressive. In the shop you can buy nice design items and enjoy a cup of coffee with a fresh croissant or other goodies in the café.

Check out the prices and availability of Hotel âme.


Eendrachtsweg 19, 3012 LB Rotterdam


6. Le Petit Marin Boutique Hotel Rotterdam

Around the corner from Le Marin you will find the second hotel Le Petit Marin Boutique Hotel, also in Rotterdam West. This hotel is smaller than its big sister down the street and therefore only has luxury suites.

Here you will feel at home, but at a high level. Gold, black, grey, beautiful lighting and beds like clouds, that’s what awaits you.

Check out the prices and availability of Le Petit Marin Boutique Hotel.


Graaf Florisstraat 70, 3021 CJ Rotterdam


7. The Slaak, a Tribute Hotel Rotterdam

The Slaak at the beginning of Kralingen is part of the Marriott chain. That is a star chain, so that says enough.

But to make you even more excited, I can tell you this: I spent a weekend there and it felt like I was someone important, famous. Everything was luxurious and decadent, from the materials and furniture to the service. Dinner in bed was definitely the highlight of the stay.

Check out the prices and availability of The Slaak.


Slaak 34, 3061 CS Rotterdam


8. the bellhop

Als je overnacht in the bellhop hotel heb je een mooi uitzicht over de Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam. Je slaapt dus midden in het culturele hart van Rotterdam!

Applause for hotel the bellhop, because this hotel is all about sustainability. It’s all about reducing the impact we as humans have on the planet and nature. That’s a very nice thing if you ask me.

The interior of the hotel fits this mindset, because there is a lot of wood in the rooms. It feels fresh and responsible, very Scandinavian, hip and positive.

Check out the prices and availability of the bellhop hotel.


Witte de Withstraat 77, 3012 BN Rotterdam


9. Suite Hotel Pincoffs Rotterdam

If you pass over the Willemsbrug Noordereiland, you will come to a waterfront with old buildings. Here you will find a luxury hotel with a view of De Maas, namely Suite Hotel Pincoffs.

This hotel is located in a national monument, which is quite unique if you are in the Kop van Zuid. There are many new, large towers there. But the decadent old style of the Suite Hotel Pincoffs has been preserved, here you will feel like you’re a royalty.

Check out the prices and availability of Suite Hotel Pincoffs Rotterdam.


Stieltjesstraat 34, 3071 JX Rotterdam


10. The James Hotel Rotterdam

Okay, maybe this is even more central, I don’t know. The James Hotel is located right in the heart of Rotterdam, between all the shopping streets and opposite fine restaurants. Be sure to eat at Takumi’s Saporro Ramen Kitchen while you’re staying at The James.

A high-quality, luxurious hotel with rich green tones and tropical atmospheres in the lobby, but mixed with crisp white in the hotel rooms.

Check out the prices and availability of The James.


Aert van Nesstraat 25, 3012 CA Rotterdam


11. Savoy Hotel Rotterdam

100% honesty? This is a hotel. A fine, comfortable hotel. What is so nice about this location is the location. You can walk in an instant to De Markthal, the Binnenrotte Markt, restaurants in the old harbour area and all the nice shops on the Meent and at the Pannekoekstraat.

This hotel is a top choice if you want to get out and about and enjoy the city.

Check out the prices and availability of Savoy.


Hoogstraat 81, 3011 PJ Rotterdam


12. Hotel New York

De zon schijnt en gelukkig zijn er in Rotterdam genoeg plekken om ervan te genieten! Wij delen daarom de beste terrassen - m?t een goed uitzicht - in Rotterdam om een hapje te eten of een drankje te drinken.

Not only every Rotterdammer, but almost every Dutchie is familiar with Hotel New York. This iconic hotel near Katendrecht is not only beautiful, it also has a pleasant restaurant, a sunny terrace on the water and a cocktail bar in the cellar.

If you’re going to do it, get away for a weekend, do it right… so, do it at Hotel New York.

Check out the prices and availability of Hotel New York.


Koninginnenhoofd 1, 3072 AD Rotterdam


13. Mainport by Inntel Hotels

View of De Maas, isn’t that wonderful? I love water myself and in a busy city like Rotterdam, the rippling water that runs right through the city always gives me a zen feeling.

When you say Mainport, you say luxury. Think: rooms furnished with designer furniture in rich colours such as black, gold and red. Wallpaper with impressive prints, a sauna and gym in the building and a flashy restaurant.

I previously wrote about these luxury hotels in Rotterdam.

Check out the prices and availability of Mainport by Inntel Hotels.


Leuvehaven 77, 3011 EA Rotterdam


14. Mr.Lewis Hotel Rotterdam

Mr.Lewis Hotel can be found in my neighbourhood, around the corner from me. A young and stylish boutique hotel on the Heemraadssingel.

This is a very beautiful part of Rotterdam West, very green and absolutely magical with a sun on the water. The hotel has a self-service system, sober and quiet rooms and the building has beautiful old details such as stained glass.

Check out the prices and availability of Mr. Lewis Hotel.


Heemraadssingel 90, 3021 DE Rotterdam


15. ART Hotel Rotterdam

Het Art Hotel ligt iets meer buiten het centrum, maar juist weer dichtbij Ahoy – de Rotterdamse evenementenhal waar elk jaar grote concerten en evenementen plaatsvinden. Toeristen die graag een evenement of concert pakken, maar ook wat van de stad willen zien, zitten bij het Art Hotel precies goed. Binnen 15 minuten met het openbaar vervoer ben je zowel bij Ahoy als in het centrum van de stad.

ART Hotel Rotterdam has rooms that take you straight into the 80s/90s. This is quite a fun experience. The rugs and colour combinations of the furniture feel like a mistake, but somehow it works. The building itself also has a very special shape, it is a very high tower with a kind of kink in it.

Check out the prices and availability of ART hotel.


Mijnsherenlaan 9, 3081 GA Rotterdam
