Types of rental properties in Rotterdam

What types of properties can you rent in Rotterdam. Well, actually all types of housing. From small flats, to large family houses and even “unique” cube houses. Which type of house suits you best, and in which district can you find the largest number of them?


If you are looking for a rental property alone or together with your partner, you will probably be looking for a studio or a 2-bedroom house, so we are talking about a house, a living room and 1 bedroom. But you can also think about maybe renting a studio apartment. Yes, the living room and bedroom are one and the same, but you will have a wider choice of accommodation. The rental prices of studio flats are also usually lower, which is another advantage.

Are you looking for a property for yourself and your partner a live-in child, or want to share a flat with a friend. Then you should look for a 3-bedroom house, or flat or flat with 2 bedrooms. If you’re looking with 3 people, not 1 of whom is a live-in child, then it’s all a bit more difficult. There are extra rules for sharers. Sharing in pairs is no problem. If you do want to share a flat with 3 or more people, check the section on single-family homes below.

Proportionally, there are fewer rental properties with 3 bedrooms or more. These are usually also very pricey. Below is an overview of the districts where you can best search, to get you started.
