From: Rotterdam, Netherlands
The on Rotterdam's historic Wijnhaven, or Wine Harbor, is uniquely suited to that maritime city's environment: The three-star hotel floats on the water, where it rises and fall with the tides.
Guest rooms, which are moderately priced, come in several varieties:
The H2otel's public rooms consist of a glassed-in entrance lobby on the upper deck, a brasserie bar-restaurant with a waterside terrace on the lower deck, and--next to the brasserie--a salon where a buffet breakfast is served each morning.
Desk staff at the H2otel are extremely helpful and friendly, and the hotel's location is ideal: It's within a leisurely walk of the central railroad station and the cruise terminal. Even better, the hotel is only a few minutes on foot from Rotterdam Blaak station, which is served by the Rotterdam Metro and by trains from Amsterdam (including Schiphol Airport).
From the H2otel, you can easily reach most sights and attractions in central Rotterdam, including the Cube Houses, the waterside restaurants of the Oude Haven (Old Harbor), the Maritime and Harbor Museums, and the city's main business and shopping district. We spent five nights at the H2otel and walked everywhere--we never felt the need for a taxi or public transportation.
To check rates for this this pleasant and reasonably-priced hotel--or to make reservations with our hotel partner--see H2otel at Europe's leading secure reservations service, Booking.com.
