Apê Calypso is a new and luxury two bedroom apartment equipped for 1 to 4 people high up in the Calypso building. It is about 92 m2 (± 990 ft2) and also has 23 m2 (± 248 ft2) of outdoor space spread over two balconies.

The apartment is very bright and has an unobstructed view over the city. The building is less than five minutes walking distance from Central Station. There is a private parking space in the garage below the building. The apartment has underfloor heating and cooling. There is fast broadband internet (wired + wifi) and a wide range of (international) digital tv channels.

Inside the apartment there is hardly any outside noise. But also on the balcony you will notice the relative tranquility because of the absence of heavy traffic and because of the lower part of the building which works like a sound buffer.

The apartment has a living room with a sitting area, dining table and open plan kitchen. There is a smart TV (with Netflix and more), soundbar and blu-ray player. The kitchen is equipped with an espresso machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, induction cooker, American style fridge and more.

Adjacent to the livingroom there is a large balcony with a lounge sofa and dining table. This south facing balcony offers a lot of privacy since there are no neighbouring balconies. And because it's a covered balcony you can sit outside even if it's raining.

There are two bedrooms with a total of four beds. The master bedroom has a comfortable double bed (210 x 180). This bedroom has a large wardrobe and is equipped with a smart TV. Adjacent to the room there is a balcony with a lounge chair which offers a view on the square Schouwburgplein below.

The second bedroom has two single beds (200 x 90). This room has a wardrobe as well. Through a narrow door the balcony of the master bedroom can be reached as well.

The bathroom has a bath, a walk-in shower with a regular showerhead as well as a rainshower and a double sink. The apartment has a separate toilet.

There is a washing machine in the extra storage room.

In the entance hall of the building there is a counter that is staffed during the day. You can go there for additional services (like a dry cleaning and shirts service). There is also a fitness room in the building.

The Calypso building is centrally located next to the square Schouwburgplein, directly adjacent to the shopping area Lijnbaan, cinema, restaurants etc. On the ground floor there is a supermarket (march 2015), a Bagels & Beans and a sushi & grill restaurant. Central Station is less than 5 minutes walking distance from the building.

First class modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

This modern apartment is first class. It is spacious with high ceilings, it has a large lounge-dining room with comfortable seating, a big fridge/freezer and a well equipped kitchen. The principal bedroom is also a good size with a large, comfortable double bed that is not low to the floor. The balconies add to the feeling of space. The Calypso building is smart, modern and well appointed. Although there are many other apartments in the building we were not troubled by noise at any time - obviously it has been well designed with good soundproofing. There is no traffic noise. Calypso is no more than 5 minutes walk from the main railway station (Centraal Station) and the excellent Rotterdam tram service, which is virtually step free, is centred on the railway station with trams to all parts of the city. The trams and trains run at frequent intervals throughout the day. There is also a metro system (which we did not need to use). There are many respectable restaurants within easy walking distance and the principal shopping area, with adjacent markets, is not far away and can be reached easily by tram or on foot. We visited other places by train such as Amsterdam, Den Haag, Delft and Antwerp, and Calypso, with its proximity to the railway station proved to be an excellent choice. If we visit Rotterdam again this is the where we will stay.

A beautiful, fully appointed, and well located apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The Calypso Apartment exceeded our expectations. It was emmaculate, beautifully appointed and centrally located. We arrived by train and could see the red Calypso building from the Central Train Station. It was an easy walk. Alex, the owner, is a delight. He met us in the lobby, walked us through the apartment and answered all our questions. A bowl of fruit, cookies and an espresso machine, filled with coffee beans, awaited us. We felt immediately at home. There is an excellent grocery store on the main floor so we were able to get everything we needed, including pre-made salads, sandwiches and microwaveable meals. We would stay at Alex and Sandra's apartment again in a heart beat!

Every convenience imaginable!

  • 5 of 5

Seems to me that this is the place to stay in Rotterdam!

City center and next to Centraal Station? Check.

Free secure parking? Check.

Great city view? Check.

Grocery store in the building? Check.

Local car rental within three blocks? Check (Sixt).

All the conveniences of home? Check.

Equipped and starter-stocked kitchen? Check.

Stuff you didn't know you might need tucked away for your convenience? Check.

Bus/Tram transit cards provided, so you don't have to buy them? Check.

Great owner/host? Check.

We would absolutely stay here again; I'd book this place before I booked my flight, just so I knew it was available. I can't really think of a down side.

P.S. If you can figure out how to get a Maestro debit card, it helps with all the automatic parking meters around the city (though I hear there's a phone app that might work instead) and purchasing/reloading public transport tickets (though there are service desks open most hours in Centraal Station).

The best apartment we rented so far.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely agree with previous reviewers. This is very clean and modern, and very well situated apartment with amazing views from every window . It has everything you can wish for and more. Communications with host were prompt and clear, on arrival he already was there and waiting for us, and explained everything about apartment and appliances. Walking distance to central station, tram stop is right in front of the building, grocery store is in the same building. And, with all that, it is very quiet inside the apartment.
