About This Listing
Amazing view of the Rotterdam Skyline right in the heart of downtown Rotterdam
A really great Deal.
Rotterdam's newest, modern prize winning apartment complex situated in the heart of the city centre.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of our 1st skyline studio apartment we have just opened our second apartment.
The apartment is the same, only on the 11th floor and of course with it's own character.
For a long list of reviews please check out our other skyline apartment.
Our brand new apartment on the 11th floor of the 22 storey "Karel Doorman" has all you need for a comfortable stay in Rotterdam. It offers amazing views of the trendy Rotterdam South area and the famous Erasmus bridge from the sun filled semi enclosed ( with glass) balcony, and a great view of the city centre from the northern balcony.
This top location is 4 minutes walk from most theatres, movie theatres and restaurants.
The apartmentis fully furnished and all linnens are provided.The fully equiped kitchen also includes a dishwasher and washingmachine dryer. So you have all the comforts of home. There is a flatscreen TV and wireless internet.
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. It is only 6 minutes walk to Central Station and Schouwburgplein which is host to the Pathé movie complex with it's 7 movie theatres, the Doelen concert venue hosting world renown classical artists, Codarts music, dance and circus academy and the Schouwburg Theatre.
To shop you need only go to ground level to be in the heart of the downtown shopping area which is a host to all the leading brand names.
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 to top of the bill restaurants. For a very healthy and quick meal we would suggest Angie's at 368-370 Karel Doormanstraat. With organic ingredients and a great cook they make meals to match any of the best 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 .
What makes our apartment so unique? It is warm and cozy tastefully furnished with romantic lighting and very clean :0)
The kitchen cupboards have all the basics like oils, spices, teas and koffies 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. This apartment also has a 3D smart TV so you can stay in and watch a movie ( I have left some of my favourites including the 3D version of Life of Pi) :0) and across the road is a large store which is open till 22:00 with hundreds of films to chose from.
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!
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our skyline haven.
P.S. We only respond to those whose profiles are complete with photos of the guests staying and some information about you. All this makes airbnb a concept where inviting people to share your home becomes a great experience for all.

If there are 2 people and you would like to use a seperate bed we will charge an extra 10 euros per stay for the extra linnens.
This may be paid on arrival :0)
GREAT TOURIST SITE FOR ROTTERDAM

Go to the restaurants at the bottom of the page :0)
Café 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

Bibi was very kind and helpful! She gave us tips what to see and where to go, she also took the time to explain everything.
Had a wonderful stay at Bibi's flat. It is in a great area of Rotterdam everything you need is within a 2 min walk. Will stay here again when I return.
UN SEUL MOT .....FORMIDABLE
Our stay in Rotterdam was made perfect by staying at Bibi and Nico's fantastic apartment.
Nico very kindly met us at the train station and drove us over to the apartment with all our luggage. An act of hospitality that was above and beyond anything we expected - thank you :)
The apartment itself was very stylish and modern, as well spotlessly clean. The views over Rotterdam are stunning, and despite the cold we really enjoyed having a balcony to get fresh air in the morning.
Though we only saw them in the lobby area, other tennants in the block were really friendly and welcoming too.
The location is perfect for exploring the city centre and only minutes away from the train station, from which you could travel almost anywhere in Holland very quickly.
A wonderful stay and hosts - thank you very much.
I have great time at Bibi's apartment. It was clean and tidy. We can find almost everything what we need to survive at the place far away from home. In addition, extremely good location it's core of downtown area. Bibi is the kindest and warmest host I've ever met.
Thank you for sharing your place through airbnb.
Hope to see you again when I comeback to Rotterdam!
