A few days ago Jordi and I spent a night at the lovely Stroom Rotterdam hotel. We were up for a little get-away to enjoy Art Rotterdam, we thought it would be fun to add a sleep-over as well. After looking around I came across Stroom Rotterdam, and it seemed to be the perfect stay for our short sleep-over. The hotel has this natural industrial vibe as it used to be a electricity (‘stroom’ in Dutch) factory during the beginning of the 20th century.
They def succeed at keeping remains of their history, while combining with a modern interior. We stayed at a split level studio which felt a bit as a home, like, I could really live here. Think of a huge bath, two rain showers (!), a Smeg fridge, coffee machine, Rituals products, a boxspring bed and two tv’s. You can image we were not bored. At all. One night was way too short, obviously!
We enjoyed Rotterdam at its best, even though we had to conquer the freezing temperatures and snow. Next to our dose of art, we went on a little shopping spree and had the yummiest food. A few of my fave spots: Hutspot, COS, Sevenply, GROOS and Weekday for shopping, Little V for dinner (asian restaurant) and Altijd In De Buurt for lunch.
If you’re planning on a weekend get-away to Rotterdam, don’t forget to check out these places, and of course, Stroom Rotterdam for your night of sleep.
