Despite reading the bad reviews I booked and moved into an apartment at Cornelis Paradise. So far everything has been great with the apartment and the staff. When moving in I took many pictures and videos to ensure I don't get charged for any marks on the wall, dirty carpet etc when I move out and the staff at H2S have reassured that once the apartment is returned in the same state there will be no deposit issue.
The apartments are a little on the expensive side but for me it is working out with good value, good location and well equipped.
I would definitely recommend using H2S to find a place to live in Eindhoven!

I just moved to a newly constructed, srort-stay, apartment at Philips Bedrijfsschool in Eindhoven.
- I have a place to live
- it's furnished and new
- good furnishing compared to other places
- big window
- adjustable luminosity in the kitchen
- after I rented this apartment for 950, H2S advertised another ones for 795 which are EXACTLY the same but on another floor and available 2 months later
- it was advertised as a 1-room apartment but it is a studio as there is no physical separation between the kitchen, the living room and the bedroom
- it is a 2-floor studio so I need to run up and down the stairs a lot (the toilet is not on the same floor as bed)
- the stairs inside my apartment are so short that only half of my foot fits there; feels dangerous when going down
- no finishing on the 2nd floor ceiling so it's a bare concrete and it feels like I am living on a construction site
- all the furniture left packed and the bed was standing almost vertically, leaning to the wall, so I had to do the job that H2S should have done
- H2S didn't check what's in my room so it's me who has to do their job
- some goods were damaged as the bed, dirty on its side, or the exhaust system with holes in the exhaust tube
- no dishes at all
- extremely large building so if I come to my bike and realise that I forgot the key for it, it's 5 minutes to go to my apartment and return
- bad window insulation so I feel the cold coming into my apartment
- low ceiling, not suitable for 2+ meters people and a rib on the ceiling so even I, with my 1.78m have to duck
- the shower has glass doors so If I had a friend or a relative to stay at my place for the weekend, they have to go to another floor
- there are only 5 washing and 3 drying machines for several dozens of people and they are located on the ground floor so it's a hassle to check the status of my washing
- the wardrobe is located too low and has no shelves so it's a hole in the wall with rectangular section that only reaches my belly; there is one crossbar to hang shirts and no other shelves; it feels like I am supposed to throw everything into there and close fast before it falls back
- the he construction around is still going on so it's lots of trash lying around in the corridors and construction workers making noise starting at 7.00
I don't really feel like H2S Cares about me but that is what I value as tenant.

Nice place but some of the appliances are dirty and the bed is not a double as shown in the pictures. Very friendly staff tho.

You'll never pass their cleaning policy, maybe they just want to make money out of it. My girlfriend and I cleaned the apartment based on their guidelines, and we did our best that we were pretty sure it will pass the checkout inspection. However, holland2stay sent an inspection official over, and she claims it's not cleaning enough to her. I just want to say that some items will have natural trace after using it, and it's impossible to make it as new as the original status. Obviously, they will send their "cleaning crew" to clean regardless the fact that it's only some items that have a bit of stain. So never use ANYTHING AT HOME BECAUSE THEY WILL CHARGE YOU! By the way, even the things you didn't use they will say it's dirty and damaged so PAY MORE MONEY. I won't recommend this agency to anyone. Totally dishonest.

Not everything was perfect at the beginning (some items missing, some devices working), but Holland2stay crew was ready to help and every problem was finally solved. I really liked high standard of the apartment they prepared and I appreciate their welcome pack to facilitate life at the beginning (plates, glasses, pans, iron, etc.). That was very helpful in my case, moving from abroad.
Review by Joreena4 weeks ago
the reason for giving poor is because I had very high expectations for H2S, at the best it is average.
This review is after staying in the Citytower for 5days.
Below are my reasons.(+ves & -ves)
The sofa is worn out so bad its better to donate it to the charity.Please replace that.
the remaining furniture looks average and it is acceptable .
The Carpet has some marks and it is also acceptable.
Walls and Doors:
The bedroom door is damaged still not yet fixed.
There are few patches and many black mark lines on the walls.
these should be fixed.
one of the doors is blocking the stove if you keep it open.
there is no practical use for the hallway door its very annoying.
I suggested them to unbolt and keep it back when i move out.
But H2S is not willing to do that
they provided new utensils and the kitchen is good.
No Complaints here
Rating : Good
expected it to be little more bigger but its good.
one problem is there is no stand to keep the shampoo in the shower.
It should be easily fixed.
even with closed windows still i am able to hear the outside noise.
so little difficult to sleep. I am living on 7th floor still the car sounds you can hear. But its manageable
The view is good.
There are few stuff missing in the apartment compared to checklist they have given. But whatever i asked they are providing.
Good response time but they should have checked it before.
So Overall Conclusion:
Suggestion to H2S
H2S need to improve in the above mentioned points to become better.
Suggestion to fellow people:
for people who just arrived to Netherlands or planning to stay less than a year then my suggestion is to take H2S (Especially City tower).
Check the floor Planning before you take it. Especially if there is any door is blocking some other stuff

Great stay with H2Stay (WFC Lofts in Amsterdam)
1. First steps
They offer a very clear and effective process for booking an apartment: you can do that fully online, upload the necessary documents etc and after that if everything is fine your booking is approved. And an excellent thing about that is that you do not need to have an NL bank account and that sort of stuff and you do not need to go for viewing and to be there in person. A great advantage to those who just move to the Netherlands from another country.
2. Living there
I just moved in, the staff was very nice and friendly, everything in order, the apartment was absolutely clean, some new cutlery was prepared for me. I also offered a linen package, it was ready when I was moving in.
The apartment is as expected and described, and almost identical to the one pictured on the site for informational purposes.

I recently moved into one of Holland2Stay´s apartments in Rotterdam and already feel like home. The rooms are bright and spacious, there is a gym, a sauna and a restaurant in the house and the staff is very friendly and and helpful with any request. I´d rather never leave the apartment again :)

Review by Gerenz Wengernuk1 month ago
I really liked the place!
The fact that the booking process until I get the keys is all online is a very positive point for me.
I really liked the Studio and facilities, although they still have some floors in the works.

They search for every excuse to keep your deposit and you have to wrestle them for a couple of months in order to get what is rightfully yours.
The apartments are grossly overpriced but you get a worse-than-average service.
Review by Candle1 month ago
This company offers bad apartments for very high prices just to take advantage of expats and international students that can´t get something better due to the housing crisis on The Netherlands.
My apartment in Eindhoven, The Wall, was a complete ripoff!
The place was tiny. There was a small ¨loft area¨ advertised as a 2nd floor (but only 110cm tall, so barely a sleeping place). The elevators were never working, the laundry facilities were insufficient, and management could not care less about our complains.
I am still in contact with them to get my full deposit back because:
a) They charged me 30 Eur for extra cleaning (even though the apartment was in a better state than what I got and they never showed up to the inspection)
b) They charged me 150 Eur for ¨delayed payment(s)¨ even though I have payed everything with anticipation (and provided the receipts to prove it!).
After almost two months of claiming my deposit back and 6 ¨Support tickets¨ nobody has been able to explain why I am missing funds and instead of following up or refunding me my money they just ignore you and hope that you stop trying.
After seeing I am not the only one experiencing this kind of deposit fraud, please save your money and get a decent accommodation!
The Netherlands is a great country, don´t ruin your stay with these apartments!

Everything is so great, clean safe and a very good deal for the price. The only thing can be improved is increasing the number of the laundry machine.

Just got into my apartment at the Lee Towers in Rotterdam. What an amazing building! My apartment is brand new and it shows just like the pictures on the website of Holland2Stay. Everything is well arranged and provided: the inventory, but also information about parking, laundry etc. H2S is easy to contract and they also have a special 'ticket system' for their tenants when you have questions or issues. Too bad I can only stay here for 5 months.....

I like the apartment I reside in. Everything is good, new... Currently, there are no parking places, which is a downside.

It's truly luxurious apartments just like photos. The apartment is exactly as described. Great location. Close to tram/metro and groceries. I would like to stay longer but it's a short term accommodation.

Great experience with WHS , Holland2Stay. The quality of design and interior is impeccable and the team looking after WHS does an amazing job in terms of customer service.

Really like apartment, however it’s expansive enough. The biggest issue that bathroom and toilet located in opposite places of flat :). 2nd stuff is view right to the cemetery. As well even if windows closed you can hear what happened outside. 2nd bedroom have no pillow and blanket... so for whom is it ??? Washing machine with just Dutch language))) but hopefully we have it! And best stuff here is location- amazing green park and close distance to the central area. The last stuff that I have no idea how to manage is AC system - they have a lot of regulators in each room but impossible to change something. Sometimes it’s too hot inside so have to just open windows :) will see what happen at winter time ;) all furniture here looks like from the same store - in other buildings that rented by my coworkers the same stuff just a bit different size :) Anyway it’s quite nice cozy place with nice location, huge Balcony and beautiful entrance. That’s that guys
