Looking for high-end, luxury apartments to rent in central Rotterdam? Look no further than NTH Apartments (Natural Tech Holland).
The stunning properties are located in the heart of Rotterdam, within walking distance of the best bars, theatres, cafés, key historical landmarks and museums the city has to offer. The central station is ten minute’s away on foot. The flats have impressive city views, and are designed and furnished in a modern, sleek style, with beautiful parquet floors, light interiors and plush furniture.
The apartments accommodate mostly business travellers, but are equally suited to families with children. Each apartment sleeps four adults, and studios are suitable for two adults and two children. They can be rented out from five days.
So why choose to stay in NTH Apartments? As described by founder Gurol Celikkol, the apartments provide true luxury and home comfort away from home. “People feel fully at home here, with all the amenities and privacy of their own place,” says Mr. Celikkol. Guests also cite the excellent service, as well as the 24-hour helpline, as key reasons for staying at NTH Apartments.
Mr. Celikkol’s passion for the tourism and hotel industry began whilst he was studying and working in hotels. The aspect he loves most, he says, is “meeting people from all over the world” and ensuring his guests feel at ease. The inspiration to found his own rental apartment business came to him when he was on a three-month business trip staying in a hotel. “I realised it would be much more comfortable to stay in an apartment, and to be able to have my family come visit if they wanted, and a kitchen to cook in, as well as other home comforts,” he explains.
One of the luxury apartments is located in the landmark Timmerhuis, a historical building behind the city hall. The apartments are in a new building made up of open ‘pixels’ (square blocks). The construction is only connected to the ground at two points, thus giving the effect of a swaying cloud of pixels. Another impressive modern complex, Calypso, offers more apartments and studios. It is a colourful block with shops, apartments, offices and 24-hour fitness facilities. It also has conference rooms and indoor parking available, as well as a service desk for any queries. Check in is from 1pm, and check out is at 11am.
