Novotel Hannover - Tradition in modern design. Since many years now, the Novotel Hannover, which was integrated into the former Bahlsen biscuit factory, has been regarded as a popular hotel address in Hanover - both for business and leisure travellers. With its 205 rooms, restaurant, bar & eatery, wellness and fitness area, it offers all the amenities of a 4-star hotel. The rooms as well as the newly designed public area are characterised by modern design and adaptation to the contemporary lifestyle and invite you to work, relax and feel good. The hotel specializes in conferences and events for up to 330 people. The highlight and USP of the conference area are two impressive, historic steam engines of the former Bahlsen factory, which is regarded as a sought-after event location. The Novotel Hannover is centrally located, on the edge of the "Eilenriede", 5 minutes from the main station, 50m to the underground station - an ideal starting point for exploring the city

Conveniently located hotel on top of a very fair priced parking garage. Only €7 for guests, per day. You do need to validate your ticket in the machine in the corridor from the hotel to the garage and you can only pay with cash, which is the case in a lot of places in Germany. Nice, spacious room with a view on the forest leading towards the zoo (20 minutes walk). Staff at check-in were very friendly, our son got to pick a small gift. The hotel is located conveniently, but next to the city centre as some reviews state. The city centre is about 35 minutes of walking or 10 by U-bahn, which stops in front of the hotel. There is, however, a main shopping street in about 5 minutes walking from the hotel, with a mainly pedestrian area that leads up to the station and into the Altstadt/city centre. However, there was a big concern during our visit. At breakfast there was one member of staff who was deliberately ignoring us completely. I observed him attending every table, except ours. Asking guests how they were doing, if everything was good and even cracking jokes (I speak German). Other staff members did attend our table, but this young man did not. When we left the restaurant, I saw and heard him welcome other guests in a very friendly manner. yet he still ignored us. With regard to the breakfast, there was a lot of choice. Bread was not that good for German standards. Furthermore, our room was very hot. Even with the climate system set to cold. These points has made me give this hotel an average rating rather than a 'very good' rating.

Dear 500dank, thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review following from your recent stay. I was naturally very sorry to hear some of your points of feedback, however, all guest comments are important to us, and we will be working hard to look into the aspects mentioned. I am really sorry that you had the feeling from one staff member in the restaurant to been ignored. We have in the rooms a dual system. In the summer it is cooling and in the winter it is a heating. Therefore, the system is on warm and no cold air can come out. On the other site I am happy that you liked the good location, the room with a nice view over the Eilenriede. We hope that we can welcome you back to the Novotel Hannover in the future. With kind regards, Johanna Schön, Guest Relation Managerin

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of October The hotel is lovely; we had a suite on the 8th floor that was spacious, clean and very comfortable. It also had two toilets, one shower room plus bath. Premium WiFi included but kept dropping out at times - we found the normal WiFi worked very well anyway. The location is good - 15 minute walk into town but the U-Bahn station (Lister Platz) is outside of the hotel making connections very easy. Most importantly, the team working here is great - super friendly, helpful and accommodating. The employees working reception were excellent as was Firsa who worked in Novo- the hotel bar. Definitely one of the better hotels in Hannover.

At the moment I’m for a business trip in Novotel Hannover. It’s my third time in Hannover and the first time in Novotel. I can only say I love it. The location is great (3 stops from the city centre with the metro, day ticket for € 5,60). The service is great, very helpful. The room is clean and large, the bed is great I had a really good night of sleep. I have been in a lot of different hotels and this bed is one of the greatest I had. The bedroom is clean and the showers are great and spacious. There is enough room for a cod if you need one. The breakfast is good, unfortunately for me no real vegan options, but that is something I found out a lot of hotels does not have. If you’re not a vegan there is the standard breakfast of a hotel and that should be fine. There is a underground parking place but the location to park for Novotel isn’t that clear, you have to drive straight in the parking garage go around a corner and then see the reserved space for Novotel parking. So if you’re in Hannover for a business trip or just alone or with your family, please come to Novotel, great location, very clean and helpful staff, goed breakfast (of your not a vegan 😉).

Large room with one large bed for me and my husband, super comfortable mattress, although on a busy street, we did not hear any noises. Everything very clean, plenty of toiletries, front desk staff super cordial, they helped us getting taxis everywhere, exchanged money and were honest upfront about exchanging in a bank having a more favorable rate. They do not exchange $100 dollar bills but only $50 or lower. Breakfast was amazing, service impeccable. We had a morning flight and they allowed us to check in early at no extra charge. There are all kinds of shops at walking distance. Entrance to tram/subway/train station is only a few feet away from hotel and about 20 min ride from airport. Taxi ride from/to airport is around $31 euros. There is a shoeshine device in every floor across from the elevator at no charge.
