Monsieur, We do know what non smoking means however my guests are not always very respectful of that . We are very sorry you had to suffer from the smell but I wanted to assure you that the hotel takes very seriously these issues . On a daily basis, we literally fight of the smoking clients but as you said... More

One block straight out from the train station. Modern and good sized rooms for the area. Good workout facilities downstairs. Luggage lift just to the left of the entrance to get to the reception desk. Always a staff member around with fluent English. Free WiFi which worked reasonably well. Standard breakfast fare. Good water pressure in the shower which is... More

The pluses: great, central location, English-speaking staff, clean and well-managed, all the usual Novotel standards you would expect from the company. The minuses:although the rooms are aesthetically pleasing, they are also incredibly badly designed; no 'dressing table' layout in our room or plug points near a mirror. The service in the restaurant and bar is ABYSMAL to the point where... More

I've been coming to Rennes for more than 10 years and have almost always stayed at Mercure Pre-Botte. The Novotel is better because: has a gym and pool, quieter and more spacious rooms, easier walk to train station. Wifi is pretty fast, measured at >3Mbps -- though Skype drops frequently.The breakfast is fine, if not exceptional. Only real annoyance is... More

Spent 3 nights here with the parents and the in-laws as a home base to explore Mont Saint Michel and the Normandy beaches. Everyone enjoyed their stay. The rooms were spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. The hotel is perfectly located 2 blocks from the train station, right next to the main museum in Rennes and within walking distance of the...
