The bathroom has towels and a hairdryer. The toilet is on the first floor. There is no toilet in the bathroom.
On the topfloor is a cosy chillroom with 360 degree view.
Of course there is WIFI.
The cubehouse is also a perfect place to stay if you want to visit Amsterdam. The house is situated next to the trainstation and it takes about 50 minutes to the center of Amsterdam by train.
The house is situated in the very centre of Rotterdam. In front of the house is a very big market (one of the biggest in The Netherlands) on Tuesdays and Saturdays. In the neighbourhood are a lot of restaurants. Across the street I recommend Opazzo, an excellent Italian restaurant.
More places to visit:
Hotel New York, you can get there by little boat or tube. You can have a drink or eat. It is the old office building of the Holland America line.
Witte de Withstraat (street), 10 minutes walking distance. Nice restaurants and bars
Look in the guidebook for the places I recommend.
Smoking is not allowed in the house.
Be respectful to the neighbors. So avoid making to much noise.
It was a nice experience staying at the Cubehouse. It has a lovely neighbourhood next to the newly built Markthal. The house is clean and is spacious for two persons. I recommend it if you want to experience living in the Cubehouse.
Living in the cube house is a very unique experience to us because itself is a tourist attraction. Although Lilian didn't make it to meet us but the check in was still very smooth. Lilian also welcomed us with sufficient food and fruit. There are many facilities around the neighborhood. It is very convenient. We enjoyed staying there. I highly recommend this place to people who will visit Rotterdam.
Lillian made us feel very welcome at this wonderful location and was very helpful. This was a great place to say and what a privilege to stay in such an iconic house. The location was great being close to the centre and transport links. Also close to the fantastic market hall where we could enjoy treats but also had the practicality of a supermarket nearby. Rotterdam was a great place to visit and we enjoyed exploring it, taking a harbour tour and going up the Euromast. The cube houses were being renovated when we stayed which added to the interest! We had a treat time.
We hebben een nacht geslapen in Lilian's kubuswoning en het was een hele leuke ervaring om in zo'n iconische woning te slapen. Het was schoon, leuk ingedeeld en in de koelkast en lades lag een ontbijt, perfect!
Lilian was erg behulpzaam, perfect in uitleg en zeer snel in haar reacties naar ons toe.
The cube house was a very unique place to stay. First, the location was great - very close to train & subway stations and easy walking distance to the food market hall and old harbor. Second, the house itself was fascinating - very livable overall and the room on top is now one of my favorite places on earth with views of the architecture around and up to the sky. Third, Lilian was very responsive and left us breakfast items to make settling in easier. The one thing to note is that there is a fair bit of foot traffic under the buildings and the houses are currently being renovated (starting 7 am each day), so it's noisy in the daytime and difficult to sleep in. Nothing in Lilian ' s description warned about the construction, which is fairly major.
What a unique experience! Lilian's cubehouse is a fascinating piece of Rotterdam's architecture and I felt very privileged to get to stay there. Location is perfect, right next to the marvellous market hall and Rotterdam Blaak railway station. The house - modern design with interesting details throughout - offers everything a traveller could want: a well equipped kitchen, a dream bed, a great shower and a thoughtful host with great communication. Everything was very clean and well organised. (It is true, there are lots of steep stairs, but for me that just added to the character). Highly recommended. Thank you, Lilian.
