Urban residences rotterdam: what a luxury!
Sometimes it’s okay to treat yourself while traveling! And we did! In Rotterdam, we rented a beautiful apartment from Urban Residences with a view on all sides of the apartment that makes you quiet. We also included this apartment as an accommodation in our travel blog Rotterdam with kids. Below we will describe our experiences about our beautiful apartment right in the center of Rotterdam.

The location of the apartment
You couldn’t really be in a better location as the apartment is located. The apartment is housed in the B-Tower, in the heart of Rotterdam. In fact, the B-Tower was built above the department store De Bijenkorf. This puts you right on the shopping street when you walk out of the apartment complex downstairs. The famous shopping streets such as Lijnbaan and Koopgoot are a 1-minute walk away from the apartment. As a result, we did not have to walk far to get some groceries for dinner and breakfast. In fact, an Albert Heyn was a two-minute walk from the apartment. What we liked so much is that in terms of location you are in the middle of the city, but once in the apartment you experience absolute tranquility.
Parking the car
Parking our car was possible in the parking garage of the apartment complex. As a result, we did not have to look for parking in the city. We could activate the car elevator by calling a certain number. From the parking garage we could also take the elevator straight to the reception, where we were handed the keys to the apartment.
Urban Residences Rotterdam offers several apartments and we had booked the Family Suite of 82m2. There are even larger apartments for rent in this tower up to even 120m2.
The Family Suite is divided into a living room with an open kitchen, a sleeping area with a double bed, a sleeping area with a sofa bed, a nice bathroom (with shower) and a balcony. Because there are so many windows in the apartment, the apartment gives a very spacious feeling. In addition, we loved that the apartment is so nice and quiet. You have no noise pollution from the city around you. The sleeping area for the parents could be shielded with a curtain.
Because everything is there, you immediately have a very homely atmosphere. For example, we loved that we could watch television with the family at the end of the day!
The view from the apartment
What a cool view of Rotterdam you have from almost the entire apartment! We have been to many accommodations around the world, but we can’t remember ever having such a view from almost the entire apartment. Whether you are sitting on your balcony, lying on your bed, sitting in front of the TV or eating, everywhere you have a fantastic view of downtown Rotterdam.
We love to look outside and watch the busy city life! The view alone is worth booking this apartment!
Food and drink
Because the apartment is right in the center of Rotterdam, there are of course dozens of restaurants and eateries nearby, but we also found it nice after a week of traveling to have dinner “at home” in the apartment with our daughter. The modern large kitchen allows you to cook for yourself, but we chose to get all kinds of delicious things that are easy to prepare and that we could eat in apartment cozy with the family.
A big advantage of an apartment like this for parents with kids is that it includes a kitchen, so this allows you to once again serve healthy meals to your kids while traveling. We find that this sometimes slips through on trips.
In conclusion, we enjoyed the apartment at Urban Residences immensely. Especially the view was worth booking the apartment. We loved being able to retreat after a day of walking around the hustle and bustle of the city with our daughter and just be together. Quality time with the family! Have a nice game, snack and watch some TV! That’s basically all we need then!
