Oude Westen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Holiday apartment for 1-4 people, 2 bedrooms, 2 balconies with a view

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.

Great value, amazing space, well-located.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment in one of Rotterdam's landmark modern buildings has it all. Space, light, comfort, amazing views and, in Alex, a friendly and informative host. It could not be better located for transport links, both for getting around the city or travelling further afield. There is a supermarket on the ground floor open till 22.00 for convenience. We had a fantastic week in this vibrant city, enhanced by staying in this lovely apartment. We intend to return.

I had visited this beautiful city over 25 years ago when the Tall Ships were coming into the harbour. I has always wanted to come back. I planned a three week European vacation this year and Rotterdam was the last four nights on my list. I could not have been more pleased with my choice of apartment in the Ape Calypso building. I had rented 5 other apartments along the way and this outshined them all. The property was immaculate with every possible amenity you could want for cooking, or washing your clothes. The decks were wonderful and I often sat out there to have a coffee or a glass of wine. The views were spectacular as others have mentioned and the proximity to the train station was excellent for day trips. Alex was also very helpful all along the way. Would definitely recommend this wonderful apartment to anyone coming to Rotterdam. What is up with the baby head everywhere?

A Gem in the Heart of Rotterdam

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was outstanding! Posh, clean, peaceful, convenient to everything! The owner, Alex, went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and accommodated our every need. This was by far the best place we stayed in Europe. We cooked breakfast every morning with the well-equipped kitchen. Alex provided wonderful fresh fruit so we made fresh juices in the morning with the juicer that was provided. The beds were so comfortable and the bathroom amenities were just like a luxury hotel would provide. We can't wait to visit there again.

Surpassed all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

A great place to base a trip to Rotterdam. Excellent location for everything and parking was a great bonus. The views were as fabulous as mentioned in other reviews - who needs a map when you can see many of the landmarks from the window! Alex was extremely helpful and the property was spotless and, very well appointed. Would happily recommend to anyone.

Incredible week in Rotterdam!

  • 5 of 5

This property far surpassed its description. The views from the balconies were gorgeous, the bed very comfy. The apt. was clean and extremely well appointed. Alex was very helpful and very kind. The Central Station is close by, making day trips to Delft and The Hague and beyond easy. We would recommend this apt. to any and everyone.
