The unassuming façade of the Slaak was actually declared a national monument: built in 1954, it originally housed a newspaper called the Het Vrije Volk (The Free People). Before that, it was housed in an elegant building that stood on the site from 1907 until 1940, when Rotterdam was extensively bombed in the war. The current building was constructed around the remains of its older sibling. In 2019, it opened as The Slaak Rotterdam, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel which is part of the Marriott group. New life has been breathed into the old press room, with stylish and well-appointed rooms in a convenient location east of the city centre.
This hotel achieves a balance between social hub, co-working space and hotel. Didot34, the hotel’s bar and restaurant, is central to this concept. Upscale yet relaxed, the mid century modern design makes this a sleek and stylish place to meet with friends or colleagues.
