Rotterdam Vacation Rentals
Live like a local in South Holland's
ABOVE: Rotterdam has a wide choice
of vacation rentals, including a "Cube House" room in the city center.
We're fans of vacation rentals
for several reasons:
Value. A rental apartment,
room, or cottage usually has more space than a hotel room, and the price is
often lower for the same level of comfort and luxury. If you don't need the
services that a hotel provides, a vacation rental can be a practical and
Savings on meals. If you're
staying in an apartment with a kitchen (or even a private room with kitchen
privileges), you can eat at least some of your meals at home. The savings can
add up quickly, especially if you're traveling with a family.
The illusion of being a local.
Sure, we're all tourists when we travel, but it's nice to at least feel at home
in the cities that we're visiting. When you stay in an apartment or other
private rental, you'll be part of the neighborhood (especially when you take
advantage of its supermarkets, bakeries, and other shops).
In Rotterdam, two companies have especially good selections of
rental properties. Both are our affiliate partners, which means that we get a
small commission on the rental fee:
Booking.com: Rotterdam vacation rentals
Europe's no. 1
secure reservations service is best known for hotels, but it also has a
large portfolio of rental properties in Rotterdam and nearby
towns--including apartment hotels and serviced apartments.
Airbnb: Rotterdam our partner
The world's largest vacation-rental platform has a vast selection of rentals
in the Rotterdam area, with an emphasis on privately-owned apartments,
studios, rooms, cottages, and the occasional houseboat.
Tip: When comparing prices
between Booking.com and Airbnb listings (or even between individual properties),
be sure to compare total costs including any service or cleaning fees.
