At the edge of Kralingen, with the vibrant city centre of Rotterdam right around the corner, the well-known Slaakhuys has been resurrected. After its reconstruction, designed by architect Jo Vegter, was completed in 1955, the Slaakhuys has served many different purposes, from the editorial department and printing works for a national newspaper to a snooker centre and studio space for artists.
The Slaak Rotterdam & Didot34
After years of vacancy, Frame Vastgoed has given Slaakhuys its luster back in the form of a 50s-style boutique hotel with 74 hotel rooms: The Slaak Rotterdam. This hotel is a Tribute Portfolio hotel by Marriott Hotels and guarantees a phenomenal level of service and top quality.
For a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner you have also come to the right place at The Slaak Rotterdam. Restaurant & Bar Didot34 serves international dishes here all day and at the stylish bar you can enjoy the most delicious cocktails.
In the former printing section of the Slaakhuys you can find the very first Lidl branch in the Netherlands that is located in a listed building. Thanks to the wonderful result of the restoration and renovation by Frame, this branch was therefore one of the seven nominees for the title of “most beautiful supermarket in the Netherlands”.
