Van der Valk Hotel Rotterdam-Blijdorp, Rotterdam
Not great, not horrible
Not great. I do not recommend for vacation stays. The hotel is okay for a business stay, but no amenities for families.

short stay at Blijdorp Hotel
Check in was very efficient even with the normal fuss about having to register due to coming from England. Nice clean bedroom (would like liked a bigger soap................. it is very small. If you use a hand soap bar, bring your own) Very nice bed. General warmth of the hotel rooms was set quite high so it took awhile to get the room temperature down. Suggestion push it down to your needs as soon as you enter the room.

Comfortable and friendly hotel
We came for carnival in the last weekend of August. The hotel looks much nicer in real life than it does in pictures - this was a pleasant surprise. The room was clean and modern as was the bathroom. There was a fridge which was handy and there were a few UK tv channels which was also good! The staff were lovely and really helpful. Even the security were friendly and really funny. We would definitely recommend this hotel!
