The neighborhood is in the center of Rotterdam's renowned mix of old and modern, urban and green, peaceful and working harbor neighborhoods. It breathes a peaceful but lively multicultural and multi-architectural atmosphere. Just a few steps away, historical Delfshaven offers the experience of Holland in the 17th-century; with old sailing-vessels in the canals and step-gabled houses at the quays. An authentic wind-mill “The
Distilleerketel”; grinds high quality grains and selling a wide variation of flours per kilogram on the spot.
Bustling shopping streets, including the well-known Nieuwebinnenweg, offer small shops and supermarkets, little bars and restaurants, including nice take-away food, of almost any nationality one can think of, just steps away.
From the house also leads a calm provincial bike-path along the waterfronts and pastures of Delft-land, to the heart of the beautiful old city of Delft, where the famous Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer pictured his masterpieces.
Rotterdam is, beside the numerous harbors, also known for its adventurous post-war, modern architecture. Leaving the house by walking to the left, an impressive collection of !architectural landmarks draws the quickly approaching sky-line of Rotterdam down town; located up and
under the river Meuse and connected by the modern, elegant Erasmus-bridge or so-called “The Swan”.
Within a 20 minutes walk or 15 by bike or tram, the Rochussenstreet leads from Historical Delfshaven (west) to down-town city center and Museum park. Same distance northwards to Central Station (trains, as to Shiphol-Airport, Amsterdam, and metro to Rotterdam/The Haque-Airport and the city of The Hague). Southwards from the doorstep it is a quarter of an hour walk to the wide river-side of the Meuse.
Just around the corner you'll find tram, metro and bus-stops in all directions. From Central Station, tram no. 4 to the south, direction Marconiplein, brings you to our place, stop at “Ruilstraat”, walk-up to the bridge, but just before, turn left.
At Central Station it is easy to rent bikes.

Reviews of this property
Booked this for a weekend stop for my wife and grandson. Fabulously large room with great views of the harbour outside. Nice quiet area with the Delft's Harbour across the road with some fine bars and restaurants. Tram stop around the corner to take you to the centre if needed. Excellent restaurant on the corner recommended by our host - De Olivetuin. Dineke was an excellent host. Thoroughly recommend.
Wir waren ein Wochenende bei Dineke untergebracht und alles hat gut geklappt.Herzlicher Empfang, schönes großes und helles Zimmer (waren zu 5 da).
Zwangslose, famililiäre Atmosphäre und wir würden auch jederzeit wieder kommen.
Wir waren mit unseren 3 Kindern in Dinekes Zimmer. Dineke hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen. Das Zimmer ist sehr schön, hell, sauber und großzügig mit schöner Aussicht auf den Kanal. Schön, dass wir auch die Möglichkeit hatten uns mal einen Tee oder Kaffee zu kochen. Ihr Zimmer war für uns ein sehr guter Ausgangsort, Rotterdam zu erkunden. Vielen Dank Dineke! Norbert und Familie
On top of a warm welcome and appreciated flexibility, Dineke provided us with a lovely room full of light and all the needed comfort (tea kettle, large eating table, sofa...). The view over the water is great and the house is close to the metro and tramway. I would highly recommend this place for a nice stay in Rotterdam!
We enjoied our stay at Dineke very much. Dineke is a very kind and helpfull person, and the room is very nice with a lot of space and furniture and with a fantastic vue over the kanal. The Metro is just near by.
Dineke was very friendly and we had a good time in rotterdam. The Room was perfect for us and the bathroom was clean. All in all a nice place to be
We had really a good time in Rotterdam! The room is very big and full of light thanks to the big windows, and the scenario of the river is so amazing! We had towels, the, coffee, tv, wifi, big tables to eat, the possibility to share the kitchen and all the tools inside..and Dineke is such a gentle woman, she also came with her car to take us from the station..the place is a bit far from the centre if you want to walk but there's a metro station near so there's no problem of moving.
Wir haben uns im Zimmer von Dinkeke sehr wohlgefühlt. Der Kontakt im Vorhinein mit der Gastgeberin war sehr angenehm und sie hat all unsere Fragen zur Stadt zuvorkommend und nett beantwortet. Die Unterkunft in Rotterdam war genau passend für uns, wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt!
