Silver Bilderberg Parkhotel

Westersingel 70
Rotterdam 3015 LB
-+31 (0) 10 436 3611websitePrice: Moderately Expensive
Area: Downtown

This Bilderberg property is an 8-story hotel located half-way between the Maas River and the commercial district's heart. Each area is reachable on foot, 5 to 10 minute walk in opposite directions.

The lobby and common areas are modern in ambiance, but the attempt at funky and "cool" falls somewhat short and borders on tackiness. While you will first notice the midrise tower from the street, Bilderberg's entry-level "garden" rooms surround the property's inner-courtyard. We strongly recommend avoiding these quarters and upgrading or paying extra for the "Executive Tower" rooms. Courtyard noise, less appealing décor and less discriminating neighbors may create a less enjoyable experience down below. And while the Executive rooms boast upgraded furnishings and views through narrow, cockpit-like windows, they still have a budget accommodation feel. So, if room rates for your selected dates are near those charged at the Westin, Golden Tulip and other recommended hotels, look elsewhere. Also, watch for high incidental charges here like internet access.

For your sweat, choose from a few newer cardio machines, a respectable multi-gym, and/or dumbbells ranging from 1-8 kgs. (2.5 to 20 lbs.). The short supply of windows creates a darker ambiance than we prefer, but the small flat-screen television mounted on the wall is a welcome distraction. If that's not enough, Basic-Fit is 1.1 km away and, for €19.95/day, you can get the full health club experience.

Joggers should consider heading outside to the Het Park (about a half-mile from the hotel) where you'll find a scenic greenscape and paved path around its perimeter.

Swimmers must look to our off-site recommendations as this hotel does not have a lap pool. The David Lloyd is 3k away (€20/day), or you can save some cash, but head a little farther to Sportfondsenbal Pool (4k away - €4/day).
