"Wikkelen" is the Dutch word for wrapping; this boathouse (30m2) is mainly made of wrapped cardboard and it's loaded with luxury facilities. At both sides of the Wikkelboat a terrace of 6x2.5m2 is located, with a lounge set, seats to enjoy the view on the White House or to just jump into the water. You'll definitely enjoy the tranquillity at the water while being in the city heart of Rotterdam..and you won't notice it from the noise...the house is also well isolated!
It's also equipped with a great airco, heating & ventilation system, a small kitchen, a cool BarrelQ-BBQ outside and has a small but practical bathroom. When convenient, check-in or after check-out you can leave your luggage at the neighboring Ibis hotel.
