The hotel is unpromisingly placed on a sort of campus some way out of the centre of Rotterdam - well, in fact it is partly a campus, that of the Erasmus University, and several companies have their offices there. They probably provide the rationale for the hotel, but in fact it is easy to reach the city centre; Metro station... More

My family and I arrived from the ferry at about 10am. The reception staff were really helpful and did have a room for us to check into. The room was the same as most family novotel rooms, perfectly adequate for our needs. The breakfast was lovely with lots of choice. The only slight downside is that it is about a... More

Good hotel with friendly staff. Very well located right next to the highway. Free parking was a pleasant surprise and the free wifi is fast and also free. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. There is a bar in the lobby and a good restaurant behind that. Will definitely visit again.

I stayed here because I was going to a conference at Erasmus University, and its right across the street. The rooms were comfortable. The food in the restaurant is good. What really sets the hotel apart is the excellent service. Everyone especially loved Mijke the bartender; she is very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and pours a mean vodka cocktail.

Travelling to the Netherlands will always bring us back to Novotel Brainpark. It is our preferred hotel and always know what to expect: nice rooms especially the floors from 14 and up..Love the view. Also staff knows what to do and always friendly..Breakfast is best of Novotel hotels we have been...looking forward to our next stay!

nice room, comfortable bed. Bathroom with bathtub, but temperature of the water is not always constant (definitely not in the morning, when so many others are also taking their shower), and not easy to regulate. Bar and restaurant ok, excellent housewine. Most of all: extremely kind and helpful staff.

Stayed here for 6 nights as part of a business trip where we worked at Erasmus university. Staff in general very friendly and helpful, particularly Marijk (if that is spelt correctly). She worked in the hotel bar and always served our group with a smile. :) Location is about 4km from the town centre so you are looking at a... More
