Rotterdam is the second largest city of Holland, but the city center is quite compact, you can walk almost everything. Rotterdam is located only 40 minutes by train from Amsterdam and also connected by high speed trains to Brussels, Paris and London.
If you plan to stay overnight, choose a hotel in the center, somewhere south east of the Central Station.
