A bohemian large two-room loft space in the heart of Rotterdam's cultural centre, this apartment is an excellent starting point for couples or friends who want to discover the city sights (and don't mind visiting the night-life either).
Located smack in the center of town, the apartment is around the corner from the museum park: the Booijmans van Beuningen, Kunsthal, Havenmuseum, Chabot Museum, Museum of Natural History and for architecture lovers the NAi (National Architecture institute) surround it. The street itself is one of the city's cultural hotspots, with the most popular bars (including the Witte Aap, which was voted best bar in the world by Lonely Planet), fine restuarants, Holland's best coffee bar Hopper, and lots of galleries and boutiques. It is walking distance from Central Station, and public transport (tram, bus and subway) stops right at the corner. The shopping center is only two blocks away.
The apartment has a seperate toilet and bathroom with tub & shower with a large balcony, seperate bedroom with double bed, an open plan kitchen/living area with microwave, blender, fridge, dishwasher and free wifi-access. Parking is possible either in the street (though you might have to spend some time looking for a spot) or in the parking garage around the corner.
The apartment comfortably houses two, but can accomodate four if two of you don't mind sleeping on an airbed. There are plenty of books, records and movies to entertain you if you feel like staying in, and with all the different take-away restaurants in the street, your stay will be as comfortable indoors as out. I love to cook, so there's also a lot of good kitchen equipemts you can use. The market (on Tuesdays and Saturdays) is only two stops on the subway, and there's a grocery store across the street. And with a large dining table, eating in will always be delightful.
Let me know of any food allergies you might have (be they mental or physical) and I'll make sure there's a breakfast for you on the first night of your stay. Feel free to contact me about availability, I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
We had a great stay in Siofra's apartment - it is very comfortable, clean and has all the things you need. Siofra was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The apartment is central to major Rotterdam attractions so walking/cycling is the best way to get around. Lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend staying here if visiting Rotterdam.
Siofra was a lovely host and had lots of great local recommendations. We even got to see her DJ at a wine-bar down the street! Her loft is situated on the most lively street in Rotterdam and conveniently located to just about everything. If you are wanting a relaxing evening indoors, she has the most wonderful vinyl and DVD collection and you will not be bored! This place is perfect for artists and creative-types if you don't mind stairs and a little extra street noise. My husband and I found on the last evening we were there, a great spot around the corner from the loft called WORM/Burger Trut. It is a must-see!
live a week in this apartment was a satisfying experience, relaxing and extremely enjoyable because of its location in the city, in the trendiest street.
However, being the fourth floor of a typical Dutch house is very quiet even with the back (the very large bathroom) overlooking a parking lot and on the back of other buildings (schools, offices ...). Entertainment, culture but also relaxation all in one place and in a home really "special". Excellent collection of various audio-visual materials (CDs, DVDs, LPs, Books) which makes the cable TV absolutely useless.Finally, I thank Siofra for the kindness, availability, and for being absolutely accommodating.
I was looking for relaxation and a good starting point to explore a new city and I did find it all!
I recommend this apartment (big enough for two people or more) to anyone visiting Rotterdam and wants to do it from the heart of the city, in a comfortable house,
We were out on the street one day in Rotterdam and I said to Dany spontaneously "I'll see you back at home." That pretty well sums up our stay. We felt so comfortable in Siofra's flat that it really was a home from home. The location is fabulous, we had everything we needed and are really happy to have discovered Rotterdam in this way. One caveat: if you come by car, don't leave it on the street (it can be costly, as we discovered) but go directly to the car park round the corner, leave your car there and hire bikes!
Thank you, Siofra, for letting us share your home.
Sofria has a lovely home in the heart of Rotterdam. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. the bed was very comfortable and the backyard was certainly a pleasant area to chill out and visiting the cultural life in Rotterdam. Thank you for making our first experience in Rotterdam a great one!
We had a fabulous few days in Siofra's lovely loft in Rotterdam. Great location, great space, great stay.
Siofra was fantastic to communicate with and very responsive to emails.
Me and my boyfriend was staying in Siofra`s appartements for three nights. The appartement was clean and spacouis and the surroundings could not be better . There is everything you need to feel comfortable and relaxed : bars, shops, restaurants a chilly atmosphere and of course, Sofrias place, which feels like it is your own little place. We had a fantastic stay!
Although I have not met her ( she was out of town during our stay) we had a good telephone contact and she was so friendy , kind an helpful. I really regret I havent met her. She even helped us out out when we had some problems. Such a sweet person...Thank you so much Sofria!
