This small-scale family hotel has a wealthy tradition. Hotel van Walsum Rotterdam was established in several mansions that date from the year 1895. The widow 'van Walsum' started a pension here in 1936 to provide for a living. The 'van Dam' family bought the premises in 1955 and has rebuilt and expanded the pension several times. The specific atmosphere of a classical hotel, where hospitality is still considered of paramount importance, has never faded. The ideal location of the hotel enables you to explore every aspect of the city, such as the renowned museum 'Boymans van Beuningen' that is just a short stroll away, or 'De Kunsthal' that presents many different exhibitions. But Rotterdam has much more to offer. What about a visit to the Euromast or 'Diergaarde Blijdorp' (Blijdorp Zoo)? It can all easily be reached from the hotel.
All rooms in Hotel van Walsum have their own characteristic features. Because no standard furniture was used for the decoration, every room breathes its own atmosphere. The hotel is equipped with many modern amenities such as an elegant lobby with an Internet corner, a cosy restaurant with an outside terrace, a lovely bar and an elevator. What's more, you can use the wireless Internet connection with your laptop throughout the hotel, and park your car on the private car park.
