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.
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.
Wilhelminakade 52, 3072 AR Rotterdam
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.
‘s-Gravendijkwal 68, 3014 EG Rotterdam
4. Hotel Unplugged
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.
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.
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.
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.
Slaak 34, 3061 CS Rotterdam
8. the bellhop
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hoogstraat 81, 3011 PJ Rotterdam
12. Hotel New York
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.
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.
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.
Heemraadssingel 90, 3021 DE Rotterdam
15. ART Hotel Rotterdam
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.
Mijnsherenlaan 9, 3081 GA Rotterdam
