What our guests say

  • "Truly a fantastic hotel. Beautiful rooms, super friendly receptionists, nice 24/7 "supermarket", perfect location. The decor is great and the rooms are big compared to other hotels in Rotterdam. Highly recommended! I will definitely come back!"

  • "Beautifully located, central and easy to find. Super useful parking elevator for the car so you don't have to worry about finding an affordable parking space. The room was neat, we were on the 18th floor with a nice view over Rotterdam. The Foodmarket is also very useful if you want to buy a snack or something to drink, or if you want to have breakfast. No extensive breakfast possible, but sufficient and tasty. Beautiful furniture and beautiful colors throughout the hotel."

The James Hotel is located in the heart of town, which makes it ideal to explore the city by foot and also as a starting point to take the public transportation all around the city. Our team knows its way around and loves to share all hidden treasures of Rotterdam. The James Hotel does not have a bar and restaurant but has a 24/7 Food Market and above all a great central location in the bustling city centre which is why The James has composed its favourite hotspots in our very own city map.
