" The convention I was here for was very awesome. They had some big halls and lots of space for stands but the air-conditioning wasnt on point. At some points it was very very hot and even hard to breath"

" Was here for a comedy show. Getting there by public transport is very convenient. The place itself is large, well structured and clean. Food/drink service was overwhelmed and out of several options before the show even started (no more non-sparkling water). The sound quality was not good - there was an echo for the most part making it hard to follow. Overall not impressed."

" The hall is good for a concert, but if you want to leave with the car it's awful. Only 1 entrance was open and after 45 minutes it was finally time for the second one. Gate was open so i felt robbed when i paid for my parkingticket. Could have drove right out of there without any paying..."

" The location itself if nice. It has proper seats and we had a good view (we went to a comedy show). Parking took us 45 minutes on the parking area from the location."

" Rotterdam Ahoy is a stunning venue with food ranging moderate to expensive prices. I had gone there for the ATP 500 tennis event and I was pleasantly surprised by menus catering to different cuisines at prices not exceeding 6 euros. The stadium is clean and well-maintained and the seats are manageable, despite lack of much legroom. It is well lit, and watching events live is definitely a pleasant experience. Overall, a must visit if you are into events spanning across various domains."
