The city of Rotterdam, home to many famous landmarks and attractions ranging from its state-of-the-art market hall to the towering Euromast, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Netherlands. For those looking for the familiar comforts and service of a hotel, there are options of all shapes and sizes dotted around the city. From boutique and luxury stays to city-centre digs, here are Culture Trip’s picks of the best hotels to stay in on your next trip to this port city.
Guests at this five-star hotel on the northern banks of the Nieuwe Maas river are treated to glorious views across Rotterdam’s harbour and skyline, not to mention the spa, sauna, gym and swimming pool. Though it is easy to spend days relaxing inside Mainport Hotel, there are many other attractions nearby including the bars, restaurants and venues that line Witte de Withstraat.
The art deco building that houses Hotel New York once belonged to a transatlantic travel agency that organised crossings from Rotterdam to the United States for over 100 years. Due to its architectural and cultural significance, this stunning building is currently protected as a national monument. Even though it has since been converted into a hotel and renovated to meet modern demands, Hotel New York still features many of its original design elements, harking back to its heyday. There are 72 stunning rooms available inside the hotel, many of which offer panoramic views across the river.
As it is perched inside the monumental Euromast tower, which stands 100m (328ft) above the Rotterdam’s harbour, guests at this hotel wake up to spectacular views across the city and its surroundings. The hotel features two sky-high luxurious suites equipped with deluxe beds, bathtubs and widescreen televisions. Breakfast-in-bed and a bottle of champagne are included in every booking with Euromast, making it an ideal spot for couples searching for a romantic getaway in Rotterdam.
