It's my first time in Rotterdam and I had a wonderful time staying at Ilana's place. Her place is very close to the tram stop (3-4mins walk), this makes it accessible to central station(direct) and also the main attractions. Besides that, there are restaurants and takeaways on the same street. Ilana was so helpful with suggestions on where to visit and dine. Also she is very prompt at replying messages. Enjoyed playing with her little furry friend and chatting with her. I particularly like the view at her balcony, really nice place to chill especially when the sun is out. Wasn't sure if the heater was working, it was rather cold at night. Nevertheless, everything else was perfectly fine. Thank you for making our stay comfortable, Ilana. Definitely recommend her place to stay if you're planning to visit Rotterdam!

Ilana's apartment is beautiful. The neighborhood has many great restaurants. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from Central Station. Easy walk or tram ride. Rotterdam is a very fun city to visit. We rented bikes right by the train station and took them on the Waterbus to visit Kinderdijk--the most beautiful windmills you will ever see! llana was super friendly and helpful with everything. The outdoor terrace is a lovely bonus!

Ilana and her husband were wonderful hosts! The room is beautiful and not too far from all the sights in Rotterdam. Ilana gave us several recommendations which were really helpful and we were able to explore some of the local spots in the city. Their cat is also very nice and cuddly! I would definitely recommend their room for your visit to Rotterdam!

Staying at Ilana's place was really cool. If you like vintage that's your place to stay! Ilana was really kind and had also good recommendations for bars and places to eat :)
