No matter which one of the many discount hotels in Rotterdam near Delftse Poort you stay at, you can be assured you will also be able to see these incredible towers from the area. Budget hotels near Delftse Poort in Rotterdam are close to Rotterdam Centraal Railway Station, which literally runs underneath the towers and forms the base of the podium that supports the towers.
Constructed between 1989 and 1992, these two towers cost almost $130,000,000 US by the time they were finished. The state of the art construction due to the railway station runs underneath is considered to be groundbreaking, since the train's vibrations could potentially have caused significant structural problems without new technology. The two towers are not equal in height; the tallest is 41 floors and 151 meters, and the shorter is 25 floors or 93 meters in height. The total floor area in the building is 106,000 square meters, with most owned by the company Nationale Nederlanden.
