Our home is a very comfortable, light house around the corner of Rotterdam central station. Located in the middle of town - but, since it is situated right at the back of the train station, it is a very relaxed neighbourhood. So the best of both worlds!
Nice local (coffee)bars just around the corner, and the vivid city life on only 5 to 10 minutes walking distance.
Travelling to Amsterdam only takes 40 minutes by train, and the walk from our house to the trainstation takes no more than 5 min.
