About this listing
You are welcome to experience sleeping in a cubehouse in the centre of Rotterdam.
The house has three floors. As you enter the house you have to take the stairs to the first floor. you will find a living room with tv and fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, oven/magnetron), Nespresso coffeemachine with free coffee, tea.
The second floor has one bedroom with 180/200 boxspring bed (with bedlinen).
There is the possibility for a 3rd and 4tf person to stay at the house
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.
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.
Lilian was an awesome hostess. She allowed us to arrive a few hours earlier which really helped us out as we had to rush to Utrecht to watch the first stage of Le Tour de France.
Being an architect, it was a fantastic opportunity to stay in the cube house. It's considerably larger than one initially thinks and it's just fun staying in the cube. Bed is comfortable, wi-fi is available, shower is nice and hot and the kitchen is fully equipped. Lilian was kind enough to buy some bread, meat, cheese and orange juice for our stay. The Nespresso coffee machine allowed for a brilliant start to each day.
The development is currently undergoing maintenance, so a bit awkward to photograph the units due to all the scaffolding, but soon the yellow walls and silver roofs will shine again in all their glory!
Location wise, it's a minute away from Rotterdam Blaak station which has 6 trains an hour going to Central Station. The Markthal is right next door and is a must see. Fantastic choice of food. Plenty of good bars and restaurants close by. We visited a nearby bar called Bokaal and the food and house beer was divine.
Loved our stay here!!!!!
Lilian was a great host and provided a nice and unexpected spread for breakfast. The flat was very clean and very easy to get to. There are a lot of stairs so if you can't carry your own luggage this isn't the right flat for you. There also isn't air conditioning and we happened to be there for a very hot couple of days in July.
- No welcome, strange as we have always been welcome at previous Airbnbs
- Cube houses were as expected from learning about them. However was not as clean as I would have like it to have been
- location was great- close to many attractions and transport
We had a very good time in the cube house. Lilian welcomed us and showed us around the house.
The house is very nicely furnished and very cozy and the fridge was well stocked.
Living in the house involves a lot of stair climbing as everything is on a different level. But it is definitely a very interesting and nice experience (somehow like living in a cozy UFO) and we definitely recommend it.
The location in the center of Rotterdam is ideal for exploring the city.
We left our car at "Capelse Brug Park and Ride" (free parking) and arrived at the cube house 15 minutest later.
Unique apartment in an unbeatable location to explore Rotterdam. The Markthal market across the road is divine. Recommend staying here for sure.
