Location, size of rooms Over decorated, bit to dark
Everything about the Mainport Design Hotel in Rotterdam is a thoughtful, and comfortable design experience. From it's location overlooking the historic harbor and adjacent to the Erasmus Bridge to position next to the Tram transit stop...is a well connected position in Rotterdam. My room was very comfortable and a high-design style. Service was excellent throughout, not stuffy or pretentious, but well mannered and accessible. Some 5-star hotels trying too hard to be exceptional, making the visitor feel like it's a privilege just being a guest. But I felt that the hotel and staff really are proud of their facility and are eager to share the good vibe with their clients. Only getting to stay two nights.
Veldig artig spesielt hotel. Veldig komplisert parkering systm med kort. Må kjøre ut og så gå inn med to kort.
Personalet og servicen. Det var mye god mat. Egen bar
fine, store rom å ett trivelig å hjelpsomt personale. røykerom
Very stylish hotel. Futuristic. TV in the mirror. Nice!! Excellent breakfast. They even make omelets. This is rare in Europe. Super great staff. Friendly, very helpful. Parking expensive. Even though the hotel does give a discount.
Nice & modern. Bit minimalistic but all things you need in a room. Cool late night bar. I wasn't convinced about the flatscreen TV within the mirror so you couldn't turn it. Parking is extra but they give you a discount as it gets pricey very quickly.
Amenities, Nespresso machine were good! TV was very strange. And function of 'Smart TV'(?) didn't work. They didn't give a full detail of method for 'Smart TV' operation. Even remote control didn't work well.
Hotel is dated but very clean. The breackfast is delicious No parking space and the public parking is very very expensive.Free parking from 23 to 12 Saturday to Sunday.
The staff we encountered was excellent in all areas of the facility, friendly, helpful and professional minor maintenance in the room was required - broken hair blower hose, poor ventalation in the the bathroom
The hotel is renovated and up to the latest standards of comfort and luxury. It is quiet and soundproofed. Food is excellent. The only thing to criticize is Internet speed but they do offer a fast paid version if you need that.
The staff are excellent. The rooms are old,... needs major upgrade.
Friendly staff,nice clean rooms We were given 10th floor room which is not ideal but maybe that was the only one availble.
The big bed, size of room, friendliness of staff, the tram stop right across the street from the hotel. Did not like that we could not use the fridge for our own things, and moving anything inside would incur a charge.
location close to the town centre, beds very comfortable, possibility to smoke in the room the staff was extremely rude especially the night staff, I also found them quite aggressive
It was close to the casino & a nice hotel A little pricey
Hotel well positioned near to centre and walking distance to rail station. Good value for money with competant staff. Unfortunately a wedding party was staying at hotel on the Saturday, and were noisily walking the corridors till 3-30am. I'm sure an isolated case though.
nice hotel lovely bed and pillows, quiet hotel with good service nothing, will definately stay there again
Location is what we were looking for. Very good hotel with friendly staff. Would go back and also recommend this place
In general the hotel is very old. The room had a weird smell. The worst Hilton ever!!!
Helt OK hotell. Hverken mer eller mindre. Jeg kom klokken 22.00 og dro neste morgen klokken 09.00 Nei
Liker rommet, utformingen og atmosfæren på hotellet. Dessverre rakk jeg ikke å benytte meg av fitness-avdelingen. Varmekabler på badene. Badet b le for kaldt.Større TV-skjerm?
Et sentralt beliggende hotell med en usedvanlig god japansk restaurant knyttet til hotellet. Rent og fint. Forkost tidligere og billigere. Gratis internett tilgang.
Bra hotel til en OK pris Jeg liker ikke at ting ikke er iorden når alt er forhåndsbestilt
Hotellet lå i et rolig område med lite støy. Hyggelig personale og god frokost. Klimaanlegget gjorde oppholdet behagelig i varmen. Tilgang til internett i foyer gjorde det enkelt å gjøre videre avtaler for reisen. Bedre informasjon om undergrunn og drosjer med priser. Avstand til undergrunnen var stor nok i varmen. Internett bør være gratis eller innbakt i romprisen.
The "funky" nature of the room design; it retained an atmosphere in keeping with it's past. I couldn't get a meal until 8.30pm so had to eat elsewhere; residents should be able to eat when they want to.
the ambiance is wonderful. we stayed there the night before a cruise with the Holland America Line and as everything inside of this hotel reminds you of the former HAL it was wonderful to stay there. although the hotel has an elevator in the hotel, the hotel entrance it is not suitcase-friendly. It could be that we have missed the elevator outside the hotel but if that is the case this facility is not clearly mentioned.
The hotel reflects in a fantastic way the early 20th century atmosphere. It's nice to see how the actual requirements for comfort have been matched with the originality and look of the building dating from around 1910. It's worse visiting the hotel as well as the great looking restaurant. Well done.
Sense of history in this old building set close to shore. Great shower
Spacy rooms, pleasant restaurant environment service in restaurant is poor. Staff is not watching clients.
Old style of hotel Could not open the window (just doesn't work), also no possibility to make a tea in the room - should pay for room service
the hotel offered a spacious room with a special design. the location was perfect for our activity in the cruise terminal. bar was closed to early
A fabulous resturant with friendly and attentive service, great atmosphere Nothing
It took me back to the times when passengers (including inmigrants) used it as the main cruise and passenger terminal (old and nice). I liked it in general
The hotel is like a film set, very special. Staff are polite and helpful, a rare thing today.
The energetic, enthusiastic staff. They offered their services at the slightest moment they could be of help.
Beautiful hotel very nice even better then the pictures of it
Excellent hotel, with outstandingly friendly and helpful staff. Perhaps the best hotel staff I have come across - and I have travelled a lot over many years.
I appreciate very much the kindness of the hotel 's staff and the hotel generally. The city is probably the last place of Holland to be visited. Not too nice people around the city....
Hotel look, Staff
Wonderful staff and room. Great price. Quiet area of town. I could relax and work without noise. Incredibly comfortable bed. The location was a little ways from the main part of town but the metro can have you there in 5 minutes or less. The metro was easy to use.
The staff was very helpful offering advice about what to see and how to get there. Public transportation is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. If available, try to book a room with the 17 foot ceiling. Warm water falling from the shower head 17 feet above is almost like taking a shower in a tropical rain storm.
Very nice hotel.
Location - it was close to the office (i was on business trip), but also close to the city if you want to dine somewhere nice (>10 min by car). Staff was very friendly. I had a car and parked on the street front of the hotel with no cost. The mini bar is very pricy, so you should bring your own drinks with you if you do not like the tap water.
Excellent bed Small bathroom,no cupboards,not very comfortable.Bathroom ventilator was very noisy and disturbing the whole night.No possibility to open the windows.
Very friendly staff, interesting surrounding area (near main river, interesting architecture), cool design shower Some small problems with stained cushions, no phone in the room, window can't be opened, so airco only. 30 min walk from downtown (but subway and tram nearby).
The nice design
The concept of the hotel is attractive. Breakfast was good. Details are not ok in the hotel: finishings in the room (no lamps, stains on the floor, Ipod not working, Bose system not working), shower flooding all into the room, projector missing and reparation works badly done.
pefect reception late at night lack of light by the bed and desk
Very hip, attractive, fun design hotel. Beautiful, upscale restaurant. Easy street parking (pay) in front of hotel (in a quiet industrial area that might appeal to car thieves at night, though). Fun, friendly staff (though you may have to hunt one down to check in.) Overall, recommended for the design angle, rather than comfort or practicality. Unfortunately, some form without function. No work desk in room, and the internet jack is next to the bed, rather than near the only flat surface (in my room) you'd be likely to use in place of a desk. Bath tub in room (room 320) might be tricky if you're sharing a room, depending on the dynamics. 15-20 minute walk to center, though there is a tram close by.
Interesting, large room It may be design, but totally impractical. For example, there is an Ipod in the room, but no coffeemaker. Bathtub in the middle of the room. etc. The windows don't open. The bed is, even for my taste, extremely soft. Unpleasant smell in the hallway.
its just to eat and sleep no other facilities at the hotel
Friendly staff, comfortable beds, excellent food
Really nice: real friendly staff, big bath, double shower, good internet connection, the free iPod on loan, and the big box of DVD's to watch on the beamer. It was very nice: we'll come back A window would have been nice, and a peg to hang your towel from before you go into the shower.
