Oude Noorden is authentic, has the atmosphere of a small town and has lot's of nice shops and eateries by local entrepreneurs. It's only 15 minutes by foot from the Central Station and even closer to the city center. That's why we absolutely love living in this neighbourhood!
We are very laid-back and amenable to a variety of personalities and people. However, please note our house rules:
1. Respect: Please be respectful to our home, to us and to our neighbours (which means no shouting or pounding in our home, communal areas etc.)
2. Partying: Partying in Rotterdam is great and you are more then welcome to do so! But if you plan to get wasted or interrupt our night's rest, it is better to stay in a hotel.
3. Guests our not allowed: We kindly but urgently ask you to not bring any friends here. Only registered guests are allowed to stay in the room.
4. Check-out time is 10.30. Late check-outs are totally okey, if we are able to accomodate that. So please check with us first if you are planning to leave town later.
5. Preparing a snack or simple breakfast is okey, extensive cooking is not allowed. You are most welcome to store some things in our fridge!
6. Inform us about your time of arrival before you come to Rotterdam. We both work out or have social appointments scheduled, so we are not always here. We'll do all we can to welcome you at your preferred arrival time!
7. Last but not least: be kind to our furry roommate!
Ilana was very friendly & open and showed us everything personally. The room was super clean and tidy and the balcony is great with the morning sun! We really enjoyed staying there!:)
Bij deze fijne en lieve mensen zou ik zo nog een aantal dagen langer willen blijven. Mi casa tu casa - je voelt je thuis. De foto's op hun advertentie geven perfect weer wat je kan verwachten: mooi en sferig appartement!
Het is een gezellige buurt en nieuw om te ontdekken naast datgene wat je in je stadsgids vindt, en dat op wandelafstand van het centrum.
Ilana and her husband has both been very kind and welcoming during our one night stand at their place.
We appreciated small attentions like the bottle of water with two glasses near the bed, the towels and the shower gel/shampoo and hair dryer on the shelf.
The place is absolutely clean, comfortable et very well decorated. If enjoying a good sleep is a priority for you, this room is the one you need.
Even though we stayed in Rotterdam for one night and one day only, they gave us good advise on what we could/should see during our stay.
These two people definitely know how to host. We recommend! :)
Heerlijke, smaakvol ingerichte kamer met superbed in leuke upcoming eijk van Rotterdam. Op loopafstand van centrum, maar ook de straat zelf is de moeite waard. Ilana is aardig en behulpzaam en respecteert je privacy. Fijn verblijf gehad (1 nacht). Mooi, schoon, alles in orde.
We loved our experience at Ilana's flat.
Firstly, Ilana and her boyfriend are very friendly. Nothing was too hard - they made us feel so welcome and were extremely helpful.
Secondly, the flat itself - we fell in love with it. A lot of beautiful paintings!
I can't recommend Ilana's place high enough. We will definitely be back!
We had a great stay in Llana's house. Everything was so well organized. We really liked the moment when she welcomed us and gave us really good explanations about Rotterdam and interesting things to do in the city. Her partner was also so nice and helpful. They give all the attention you need and they also allow you to have your own privacity and to feel comfortable. Thanks a lot!!
Our hosts are a very friendly wonderful couple, making us feel very welcome. The place is very clean and the room was exactly as posted. There was lots of information about Rotterdam in the room. Our hosts were very helpful with any questions that we had giving us good information and ideas on what to do and tips for navigating around town and Holland. There are lots of cute shops, cafes and a bakery close by. It is close by a tram stop and only a few tram stops from Rotterdam Central. I would highly recommend stay here.
