“Rotterdam is anywhere alone” sang The Beautiful South in the 1990s. God knows what they were on about. But one place in Rotterdam that certainly isn’t just anywhere is the Mainport Hotel. The black glass and metal exterior makes a statement from the outset. Your room has some of the features of a spa. You will find a huge shower, anti-fog mirror and private whirlpool to relax in. The suites even have a private Jacuzzi. And you can choose a room with amazing views of the city skyline which has led Rotterdam to be called “Manhattan on the Maas”. As well as the required Finnish sauna, there is a Turkish steam room and Hamam scrub treatment to leave you totally relaxed - and there is a cool lounge area for your post treatment relaxation. The hotel is situated by the harbour and attracts many locals to its trendy bar and restaurant which serves a fusion of Australian and Asian dishes.
