When it comes to renting luxury, central city apartments some of the key differentiators is the location, comfort and how at home it makes you feel. NTH Apartments (Natural Tech Holland) was founded in 2015 by Gurol Celikkol, , after he realized that on business trips people are far more comfortable staying in an exclusive, well supplied apartment than a hotel room.
Now, business and executive men and women travelling to Rotterdam seeking high-end, luxury apartments to rent can work with a business inspired and founded by someone who knows what business travellers are looking for.
Gurol’s passion for the tourism and hotel industry began whilst he was studying and working in hotels. According to him, the aspect he loves most is meeting people from all over the world and ensuring his guests feel at ease.
It was while he was on a work trip and staying in a hotel for three months that the inspiration to create a business focussed on providing executive travellers what even the plushest hotels could not, came to him.
“I realised it would be much more comfortable to stay in an apartment, and to be able to have my family come visit if they wanted, and a kitchen to cook in, as well as other home comforts,” he explains, “Obviously you don’t get these in a hotel room, but on long trips it makes all the difference.”
Since then, he now has 30 apartments that he works with and the number is growing. Impressively, he works exclusively as a sole trader and makes use of valuable outsourced services whenever he needs to.
The stunning properties are located in the heart of Rotterdam, within walking distance of the best bars, theatres, cafes, key historical landmarks and museums that this beautiful and old city has to offer. The central station is ten minutes away on foot, connecting guests with the rest of the country.
The flats have stunning city views and are designed and furnished in a modern sleek style, with beautiful parquet floors, light interiors and plush furniture. All of the designs are to make the guest feel that this is a place where they can relax and settle into and feel right at home.
Gurol believes it is very important to have good connection with the guests, hosting them regularly and basing the business on principles of trust, good communication, good service and honest pricing.
It is also important to offer something new and in 2020 he will be looking at developing longer term rentals for new and current clients.
He explains that it is a business of relationships, saying that clients want to know who they are working with and be assured their preferences and needs are taken into account.
“Guests should know that they are being treated well and have people on their side throughout their stay in Rotterdam,” he says, “People should never feel alone.”
