Rotterdam Vacation Rentals

Live like a local in South Holland's largest city.

Rotterdam "Cube Houses"

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 economical alternative.

  • 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 our partner
    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.
