Suite Hotel Pincoffs
The Pincoffs is an atmospheric boutique hotel located in the midst of the Kop van Zuid-Entrepothaven architectural district on Rotterdam’s south bank. Overlooking the famous Erasmus Bridge, it’s two metro stops away from the city centre and there’s a water taxi stop just across the street that gets you to the main shopping area in five minutes.
The building that houses the hotel is a former customs house built in 1879 on the riverfront, now a national monument, which two ex-journalists have lovingly refurbished and converted into a chic urban gateway that blends period details and contemporary styling. Old black-and-white photos are displayed throughout the hotel giving a real sense of the building’s history and its city, as do original features like the massive customs house safe.
The Pincoffs, which is named after the legendary businessman who greatly contributed to developing modern Rotterdam, also has a strong commitment to sustainability, with lots of green initiatives in their day-to-day operations. From using 100% green gas and electricity to serving organic products, its environmental efforts earned it prestigious recognitions like the Green Key Gold license and the Gaia Green Award.
Food & Drink
Indulgent breakfasts and tasty meals based on seasonal, organic products are served in a bright living room, which extends out onto the terrace in the summer months for al-fresco dining with lovely views of the Erasmus Bridge and the marina.
Throughout the day, the Lodewijk bar is a cozy retreat where guests can sink into comfy couches by the fireplace with a glass of Pincoffs Pink Fizz, the hotel’s own wine. It’s in the old clerk room of the customs house and features beautiful period details such as cast iron pillars, antique cabinets, and fine stucco.
No two rooms are the same at the Pincoffs, but they are all full of atmosphere and luxuriously equipped with upholstered Auping box-spring beds manufactured exclusively for the hotel and Egyptian Percale cotton sheets.
Most have tall panoramic windows bathing the space with light and those on the top floor feature beautiful historic wooden beams. There are a few rooms arranged on two floors and a rooftop apartment that is perfect for longer stays. Guests can also choose from a number of elegant Suites, all with original period details. We have a Romantic Suite with a fireplace and a freestanding English tub, a Corner Suite with a whirlpool and one of the best views of the whole hotel, and an Art Suite designed by artists with reclaimed materials and featuring a steam cabin, massage shower and bath.
All rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with iPod docking stations, in-room tablets, minibars, espresso coffee machines, flatscreen TVs with DVD players. Bathrooms have sustainable products by Grown Alchemist and towels and bathrobes of soft Egyptian cotton.

Points of View
Staying in Rotterdam
The second-largest city in the Netherlands is one of the most exciting destinations in Europe. Although it was almost entirely razed to the ground during WWII, it managed to rebuild itself into a vibrant city bursting with creativity and innovation. Home to the largest seaport in Europe, it’s got a unique urban scene with futuristic architecture, iconic buildings, prestigious art galleries, and trendy restaurants.
