Frame Vastgoed has worked with architect Jeroen Hoorn for more than two years on the restoration, renovation and expansion of the Slaakhuys.

The Slaak Rotterdam has 74 spacious hotel rooms, restaurant & bar Didot34, two meeting rooms and fitness Studio34. There is a public parking garage with 46 parking spaces under the hotel and the supermarket.

Tasting atmosphere at The Slaak Rotterdam is of course not only reserved for hotel guests; visitors can also visit Restaurant & Bar Didot34 for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. Paul John de Jong, commercial director at Frame Vastgoed, is therefore proud to speak about a new hotspot in town: "We think it's great that we have been able to restore an iconic building like the Slaakhuys in this place. We see it as an honorable addition and new hotspot for the city of Rotterdam. "
