It is far from the city center also about a 10 minute walking distance from the nearest train station. Downsides: 1. The room felt like it was decorated in 1970 and was not touched after that. They said they were re-decorating it. If you go there, request a renovated room. 2. The room had no iron. I had to ask... More

I was staying here since I had some work at Erasmus University, but this is one of my least favorite hotels. This is a typical business hotel, but I would ony stay there if I had business at Brainpark (a corporate park where the hotel is located) or Erasmus University. The hotel is far from the center and inconvenient to... More

Unfortunately, my husband made our reservations via a travel agent for the Novotel without considering the location. It is definitely a clean, comfortable hotel and great if you have business close by. It is in the middle of an office park and you must walk about a mile to the Metro (subway). The restaurant at the Novotel is ok but... More

I often stay at this hotel for business purposes and this is ok if you have to work nearby as this is quite close from the motorway. The rooms are large and ok, but he furnitures and decoration would really deserve a bit of renewal. The restaurant is average. Price a bit too excessive in my opinion. The qulaity of... More

The Novotel Brainpark is located in a business park, easily accesible from the highway. The hotel was modern and clean, especially for European standards. Due to the fact that it is located in a business park the is no action around the hotel on the weekends, as none of the businesses are open so you pretty much have a very... More

As with all hotels I stay at (I try at least) I want to write a candid observation. I found the Novotel truly below any acceptable level, both for a Novotel brand hotel and for a proclaimed 4-star. The bed of the room I first stayed at was so dirty that I decided to ask for another one. I don't... More

I completely agree with the other reviewer. This is pretty much a standard Novotel hotel which is great if you're on business at the nearby Erasmus University (as I was). When I arrived in my room, it reeked of stale smoke so I asked to be moved. I was told there were no other non-smoking rooms available so I was... More

Novotel Brainpark is a property developers dream. The only hotel for miles and right in the middle of a industry "park' and next to the Erasmus University on the outskirts of Rotterdam Its got a captive audience that just cannot get anyway because there is no where to go- unless you have a car. So the rooms are good standard... More
