Mainport Hotel opens in Leuvehaven, Rotterdam

The MAS architectuur-designed Mainport Hotel in Rotterdam is now open for business with interiors designed by Feran Thomassen. With 215 rooms from €150 per night, the hotel is sheathed in a façade of black glass and aluminium and has a holistic concept.

The rooms are split into five categories: City XL; Corner; Waterfront Sauna; Waterfront Spa; and the Spa Suite. Each includes an in-room spa with walk-in showers, anti-fog mirrors and a whirlpool for the ‘wellness’ factor and the elite rooms also offer Jacuzzis, Finnish sauna and a mirror integrated TV.

On the eighth floor of the Mainport Hotel is a spa with a Finnish panorama sauna, Turkish steam room, hamam, two treatment rooms and various relaxation rooms. Mainport is located in the area of Leuvehaven next to the historic Maritime Museum and the asymmetric Erasmus Bridge.
