You want to discover the real Rotterdam? Then go to the old working-class quarters. One of them is called ‘Oude Noorden’ and this is the place where this romantic bed and breakfast is suited. Hemelrijck is established in a hundred year old characteristic building. A nice place to sleep if you would like to dip into this old neighbourhood.

Small stairs



Watch out, because if you don’t, you might cross this tiny bed and breakfast without noticing. The small hotel doesn’t have a facia above the door, so you will not notice it’s there. When you ring the doorbell, Johan, the owner, welcomes you with his friendly smile. He will help you taking your luggage upstairs the rooms. The old building from 1897 has enormous small stars, so a helping hand is no unnecessary luxury. Be careful!

Romantic bedrooms



The first floor is equipped with a cosy kitchen where Johan is serving breakfast in the morning. Sitting at a long white wooden table, guests can enjoy their morning meal which consists of warm bread, fresh juice and biological meat products. When the weather is ok, the doors from the balcony are open and a nice little breeze goes through the kitchen while your are eating. The two bedrooms are on the second floor and they are decorated in a romantic style with pastels and white colours. There’s a TV and free Wi-Fi available at each room. The bathrooms are tiny, but include all necessary luxury.
