We are from Rotterdam, the Netherlands and interested in Art, science and nature.
My partner and I stayed at Helen and Rob's for two nights. They were so welcoming and friendly when we arrived. Their loft apartment is really lovely and so is the view from the balcony. Stairs are a tad steep but Rob and his brother kindly brought our suitcases to the top floor. It was honestly really tempting to not leave the apartment during our whole stay! We wish we stayed longer!
La estancia en el apartamento de Helen y Rob no pudo estar mejor! Está ubicado en un buen lugar y está equipado con todo lo que uno puede precisar para una agradable estancia en una adorable ciudad como Rotterdam. Si bien Helen&Rob no nos recibieron, sí lo hizo un familiar que siempre tuvo la mejor disposición para con nosotros. A su vez, Helen siempre dejó claro que podíamos contactarla en cualquier momento en caso de ser necesario.
Lo único que quisiera resaltar es el cuidado que hay que tener con las escaleras de acceso, son un poco empinadas.
Gracias a Helen y Rob por tal placentera locación en Rotterdam. Si llegara a volver a esta ciudad, definitivamente optaría por quedarme en este apartamento.
We had a wonderful stay with Helen and Rob. The apartment is beautiful, and well located close to Rotterdam's cultural highlights including the Kunsthal and Museum Park, and the restaurants and bars of Binnenweg and Witte de Withstraat.
Helen and Rob were great hosts and prepared the apartment perfectly for our stay - we were met with a friendly welcome and helpful local knowledge.
Great place and location in Rotterdam, beautiful & nice house, you think you're in a deco magazine but with a warm and intimate feeling. Also, easy to get there.
Erg mooi, ruim appartement op de bovenste verdieping van prachtig huis in leuke (website hidden) daarbij op de warme gastvrijheid van Helen en je weet waar je de volgende keer dat je in Rotterdam bent, moet gaan logeren! Jammer dat we Rob niet gezien hebben, maar er is in Rotterdam ook altijd zo veel te doen en te zien... Tot de volgende keer!
Helen and Rob were absolutely wonderful. Their house is beautifully designed and the loft that we stayed in was absolutely gorgeous! The bed was very comfortable, there were lots of great books to read, their wide screen TV comes with AppleTV and the use of their Netflix account, the kitchenette was well stocked and even the tea cups were beautiful design objects, and a Nespresso coffee machine.
We really loved having tea and chatting with Helen and Rob and are happy to have made new friends!
We spent few days in Rotterdam and stayed in Helen and Rob's apartment and it was fantastic. The apartment is huge, beautiful and heartwarming, there is a lot of space and light and everything is very convenient. Helen and Rob are really nice, open and caring hosts so we had everything we needed!
A friend and I stayed at Helen and Rob's place for four days during the IFFR (the International Film Festival of Rotterdam :P). The apartment is at the top floor of their old Dutch brick house, it is bright and very comfy. But watch the steepy stairs! Helen and Rob welcomed us very warmly by the rainy windy weather with a hot cup of tea and a hot cheese sandwich :p They gave us many tips to visit the city, were always very kind, very eager to help and to chat. It was a very nice time indeed, would love to come back! Maybe next year^^^
Helen and Rob's apartment is spacious, comfortable and well equipped! We had fun exploring the neighborhood, which is developing into an interesting area with lots of creative shops. The top floor is a cozy and beautiful place to stay and Helen was super friendly. We can certainly recommend this place!
Wij hebben een heerlijke twee dagen mogen vertoeven bij Helen en Rob. Het appartement was werkelijk geweldig! Van alle gemakken voorzien en een heerlijk bed. Met de tram (4) ben je zo in het centrum van Rotterdam. Het appartement is prachtig mooi ingericht met heel veel smaak.Wij voelden ons erg thuis. We komen zeker terug!!
great people with good humor and it was a pleasure to host them!
I have only good things to say about Rob Leijdekkers as a guest. He and his family stayed at my apartment for one night, and it was very quickly and easy arranged with a flexible attitude from Rob.
When I came home to my apartment after Rob's stay a nice clean smell of soap welcomed me, and the apartment looked so nice.
The communication was easy and quick as well.
So go for Rob and his family. I can only recommend it.
Rob and his daughter were the loveliest ever! Sweet, respectful, thoughtful, ideal guests!
Rob and his daughter left everything in perfect shape. I could not have been happier. They were wonderful guests. I hope their stay in NY was what they wanted.
Rob and Judith are great Dutch people who laugh a lot and leave your place in perfect condition. They are so nice and interesting, it is the kind of people you would like to take to dinner and would love to see back some time.
Helen & Rob are the most welcoming hosts in their authentic townhouse in central Rotterdam. They're friendly, relaxed and can direct you to some of the nicest places in Rotterdam, a city well worth discovering. A stay in their design apartment is highly recommended.
