I stay here 4-5 times a year, usually for a long weekend each time, and find it has many positives and just a few negatives. It is rather expensive, so look for deals, and some of the rooms are in need of work. As for positives, the location is excellent, it is clean, quiet and very comfortable. However, the best... More

Dear Guest We thank you for your comment on our hotel . I have transferred to my staff that also need sometimes to be reminded that they do a good job . We have had difficulties those past weeks with our swimming pool and it is always difficult to deal with disappointed guests . Your comment really gave a boost... More

Our stay in Rennes was really good, and this hotel was the cherry on top. Location wise, very close to centre gare, and we arrived by train tgv, so it was very good to walk to. It is surrounded by bakeries, cafés, (good) restaurants, and a very short walk to the centre commercial colombier. It was also a nice walk... More

If you have stayed at Novotel's before then it is as you would expect. Location wise it is only 2-3 minute walk from the main train station so in an ideal location for public transport and a short 10-15min walk and you are in the main city area for shopping. The hotel has nice decor about it in the foyer... More

Hotel was nice need better access to front desk other than the stairs Room was very clean and had ample space. Elevator was very small as are most European elevators. Did not eat at hotel so I can not provide any insight regarding the food. Staff was helpful

We spent 2 nights at this Novotel Rennes & found it to be well above average for the Novotel hotels we had previously stayed in. The initial welcome from Reception Staff was warm and very friendly, & during our stay they were helpful with suggestions & knowledge of their lovely town. The room was a good size, and it was...

This hotel right beside the railway station, not just any station it's a TGV railway !,it is ideally placed for mid town shopping, sightseeing, travel and the cathedral. We loved the old town, its atmosphere and charm. We ate in a wonderful little "gallette / creperie" that had and English speaking waitress that looked after us as if we were... More

The hotel seems brand new, with spotless and very modern rooms. We had the Duplex suite over 2 floors which is pretty unusual for that grade of hotel and great value for money, and we were throughly impressed with the space we got. The sofabed is very comfortable so don't be put off by that if you're sharing with a... More

If we compare this Novotel with others in others cities, even here in Alma - this one is cute. I've took the possibility to stay in corner 2 stages room and it's amazing. This hotel is very close to Gare and easy to find good restaurant around. I recommend it for business or for leisure

Excellent city centre hotel and very difficult to find any fault with it. Excellent and spacious family rooms, good (and plentiful) breakfast, private car park, helpful and welcoming staff, strong (free) wifi and pretty decent pool. Perfect place for a stopover. I would perhaps ask for a room that doesn't overlook the main street as it might be a bit... More
