A really great Deal.

The large partially glassed in balcony with it's amazing views of the south of Rotterdam is a wonderful place to sit in the sun on a sunny day. Even on a cold sunny day, the temperature on the balcony can rise to 26 degrees.
And if that is not enough there is the glassed in roof garden on the 14th floor for your enjoyment or the fully equiped gym with large sauna.
Situated in the heart of the city.

Rotterdam is a bustling modern city but when you cross the road you will find yourself in the historical Oude Binnenweg. Here you will find numerous cafe's, bars, florist and restaurants dotted between the quirky little stores holding unique and creative gifts.
Don't feel like cooking ? You are surrounded by restaurants ranging from takeaway Asian and the amazing restaurant "Bazaar" to top of the bill restaurants.
If you feel like venturing out further you can take the nearby tram or metro and cross the Erasmus bridge to the new and trendy "Kop Van Zuid". Here you will find the famous Hotel New York, in times gone by the Holland America Line building, and now an amazing restaurant. The new Luxor Theatre, photo museum, and the Lantaren Venster "art house " theatre are also in this area .

The kitchen cupboards have all the basics like oils and spices, plus many extras so you don't need to race out and go shopping or buy things you can't take back home with you.

Need some exercise or just want to sit and chat together in the sauna, then I would suggest the gym. All included in the price!
But even better still you can go downstairs into Rotterdam's night life :0) everything within minutes walk!

Bazaar In the Witte de With straat.
Restaurant Sijf, Oude Binnenweg 115. In weekend open till 2:00.. Very nice old-looking bar. They also serve food for a reasonable price and most of the food is home made. Try the grilled beef with Spanish pepper and garlic! Or have one of their great sandwiches or salads. Wanna have a nice Belgium beer that gets u all fuzzy? They have a awesome Belgium beer called “la Chouffe" (the midget) on draft... Very tasty! A good start for the evening. edit
