Spending only one weekend in Rotterdam is far too short to see Europe’s largest port city. In Rotterdam, the sights are not next to each other. Take the Metro to the South or take the Tram to the Museumpark. If you want to see a lot, an affordable 3-star hotel is an ideal place to stay. Get out of bed on time, have a delicious breakfast and get in. I wish you a lot of fun.
Thon Hotel Rotterdam
Set inside the maritime district of Willemsplein, Thon Hotel Rotterdam sits placidly by the Maas riverbank, offering tranquil views of the famous Erasmus Bridge. Wallow the daytime Rotterdam Skyline decorated with the architectural wonders along Kop Van Zuid. Shopping areas are easily within reach, as well as other notable landmarks, including the Veerhaven, and the historical Wereldmuseum. Explore the harbour on a cruise, revel in the many gastronomic finds within walking distance or by bike.
Hotel Port Rotterdam
Follow the tree-lined avenue along Pieter de Hoochweg and find Hotel Port Rotterdam, jovially beaming with its white-framed windows and red-brick facade. Bask into picturesque city views from the verandas or revel the romantical garden by the terrace. A two-minute walk to the tram leads to many touristy adventures, but many of Rotterdam’s best sights are best reached by walking, from the Podium Grounds to the Rotterdam Museum.
