“Good quality sleep, clean and modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The hotel is smart and modern, with all the usual facilities. The rooms are clean, modern and large. The beds are comfortable enough for a good night's sleep.

The bathrooms are well equipped and spacious, the only thing wrong is the plastic cup - you cannot place a toothbrush inside it - most other hotels will have glass tumblers.

The service is pleasant and efficient. The restaurant and rooms service menus are very basic.

Usual standard for Novotel, one of the reasons I use the chain is you know exactly what to expect of the room.
The restaurant seems a little small for the hotel size, although the fact it was fully booked when I was there will not help this impression.
10 minute walk to Metro station then 20 minutes on a train to the city centre
All staff very helpful and quick to respond to needs.

Good, clean hotel, the dining room has tables with TV for people that need to eat alone, friendly staff, location not in the city center. Ideally for business people that need to be in the neighbourhood. Free parking for hotel guests

I really enjoyed the breakfast. They had an extensive range of food at the buffet breakfast. The room was alright and the location was very close to where I was having meetings but not close to the city center.

The bed was comfortable and the service alright.

My second time at Novotel Brainpark. Every time, I chose the hotel since I had business to conduct at Erasmus University Rotterdam, which is just across the road. I would recommend this hotel if you have to do business in the area, as it is not a very pleasant one. So, location is ok, but I don't think you want to book this Novotel to discover Rotterdam. Apart from that, the rooms are spacious, well insulated and comfortable. Staff is very good, with a special mention for the lady at the breakfast room who was efficient and nice. On the other hand, I asked for a room far away from the elevator, and got a room right next to the elevator... I was too tired to ask for another one and it did not matter anyway since there is an extra door between the bedroom and the hall. Novotel Rotterdam Brainpark is a good hotel to stay at if you have business around Kralingse Bos, or go somewhere else more gezellig to discover a great city.
