Excellent spot - very very dusty room
Reviewed 11 September, 2021
Very good spot as it is really city centre. We got room with very nice view but extremely dusty. Old dust - even clothes hangers were covered with it. As I was bitten by something at nighttime my husband decided to vacuum mattress and under the bed area. I have to say - nobody vacuum there for at least 7 years - if ever. Big big minus for cleaning team. However towers and bed clothes were cleaned and fresh . No complains about it .
Great base to explore Rotterdam.

Urban Residences is a wonderful base for a short stay if planning to be out and about. Check in and bike rental were all easy, and the staff are very helpful. The apartment itself was fine; the views are amazing and all facilities are as advertised. The only minor point was that the coffee machine didn't work on the first morning, but the receptionist kindly made me a coffee and replaced the machine later that day. We were travelling a lot in an around Rotterdam so being so close to the station, tram lines and the water buses made everything so much easier. My only negative feedback would be that the beds and bedding are not terribly comfortable, and there are very long wait times for lifts as there is no separate service lift for housekeeping. But overall, we felt it was good value for money and would consider staying there again.

Worst place ever, was my favorite place for so long, I spend a lot of money there, and at the end, they stole my deposit money, they kick me out in the middle of the night, claiming that I was an escort and I was working there, all accusations based on his perverted security guard, he try to have sex with me, when I refused, he said all that, and they believed in him, was unbelievable, I used to stay there for weeks, I’m a young person, Obviously I invited friends to visit me, the Netherlands is supposed to be a very open country about that.
Every time when I had a visit, the security guard going to ask me if everything was alright, it seemed strange, to me but I didn't care the first times, I supposed that he was weird that’s all.
the problem started when he stayed outside my door for a long time, making sexual faces at me hoping that I would let him pass, was super creepy.
It’s a long history, the fact it’s that when I refuse to have something sexual with him, He did all that, and invented that a friend of mine that I have known for many years, had told him that he was a client of mine and had paid me for sex.
I left the apartment in the middle of the night, when he threw me out, claiming that I was an escort and that was not allowed, I decided to leave because I was alone and I was afraid, the next day I went to talk with the receptionist and they believe him, and they stole my deposit, was my worst night ever, girls don’t go there, I don't know if they fired that pervert but they are a lot safer and better options to stay in Rotterdam.
Awesome visit to Rotterdam!

We spent three nights in an Urban Residences studio apartment and loved it! From the minute we arrived and talked with Reception, we felt welcomed and relaxed.
Having the studio was way nicer than a similarly priced hotel room. Way more room and privacy, full kitchen including oven, fridge and dishwasher. Comfortable reclining bed. A full wall of windows including a huge sliding glass door that lead onto a very big balcony. The view from the 10th floor was great!
Can’t beat the location. Walk out the door and you have every store in Rotterdam available. Hungry? You can find restaurants serving any specialty your heart desires.
The parking garage was a bonus. I read a review where someone mentioned the spaces were small. We parked a Toyota 4Runner there with no problem. It’s also interesting, in that at street level, you drive your vehicle into an elevator and it takes you up to the garage on the 3rt or 4th floor. As I said, it fit a 4Runner, so go for it. Exact same price as the multi-story park house next door.
Loved our stay and would go back again!
