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. We have made a list of our favourites in our information guide.
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".

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 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. You can stay in and watch a movie in the living room or in the bedroom as both have a dvd player. I have left some of my favourites :0) . 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!

We had a great stay in this apartment in the centre of Rotterdam, everything is close from shops, theatre to restaurants. The fitness room (just one floor up) was wel equipped and quiet. The apartment had all the things you could wish for and even more: great coffee machine, dish-washer, washing machine all in excellent condition. We had great weather and it was a pleasure to spend our late evenings on the balcony enjoying the view. Contact with Bibi was smooth, fast and friendly. When we visit Rotterdam again we will certainly look at this place!!

Very clean, great views and within easy walking to and from the station. You will not be disappointed, and reading on the balcony as the sun came up was a perfect end to this trip. Bibi and Nico are very good with the communication and it really helped with everything from start to end, so glad we stayed.

We've had an awesome stay here at Bibi's apartment. She's been lovely throughout all communications. Very accurate on the timings and explained everything to us on the day of check in. The apartment itself has everything we needed so it's like staying at our own place. The washing machine is a major plus and so is the well equipped balcony. The kitchen is well stocked so cooking was made very easy. The DVD player is great for those nights we decided to chill at home. All in all this is the closest thing to home out of all the Airbnb places we've stayed at.

The apartment was just right for us. Exceptionally clean, modern, with all the conveniences you could want. Perfect for two or three people, but might be a little crowded for four. Centrally located. We could walk anywhere in the city! Beautiful view, and the surrounding neighborhood was a lively scene at all times of day, but the apartment itself is very quiet and safe, allowing for a restful sleep. Thank you Bibi! If we ever find ourselves in Rotterdam again, our first place to look for accommodations will be with you!

What a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment! Communication was great and Bibi was spot on time for check-in. What we loved most about this apartment was that the entire experience gives an insight into daily life in Rotterdam. From the exceptional location where you can walk to just about anywhere of significance, to the small things like being handed an Albert Heijn bonus card and shopping bags. Good TV packages too......with a TV in the lounge and in the bedroom. Great Wi-Fi connectivity! The apartment is so centrally located. A 10-15 minute walk from the Central Station. Great shopping areas within a stone's throw away (Lijnbaan, Karel Doormanstraat, Nieuwe Binnenweg (great record shops!) etc etc. Food, clothes, music....all around! The apartment is neat, clean and has amazing views towards the Erasmus Bridge. Highly recommended to anyone wanting value for money! Will do our very best to be back next year!!!!
