Stayed at the Brain Park Novotel a number of times. By all logical ratings it does deserve 4 star. However, I just find it bland. Does what it says on the tin, food is good, service efficient, business and meeting rooms excellent.

this is a good location if you drive and stay close to town. the only issue for me was the room was a bits cold on the floor even the heat was on high. i think it's mainly the glass windows wall insulation has some issue. otherwise it's good for my one week stay with good breakfast every morning. there's no free coffee in the lobby and parking is also free too.

This is a good quality buisness hotel with good sized rooms and above average facilities. Good restaurant, bar, TV channels bar etc all within easy walking of the businesses on the Brainpark with good public transport links via the Metro.

I had a couple of issues which were dealt with quickly. Not a likely location for a vacatation too far out from the City but for business this is weel priced and well located.

If you are looking for a good business hotel close to Eramus University and Brainpark. Good service with a smile, excellent parking facilities, free wifi, modern rooms, clean, good breakfast, nice restaurant... all you need for a business trip.

Room Tip: It is close to the high way... bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Upgrading to 'executi...

The hotel is a modern tower a few miles east of Rotterdam centre close to the University and in the middle of a commercial area of offices. There is nothing to do local to the hotel so you will need a car to get around. There is a large car park which is free to hotel residents; you collect a ticket at the barrier at the entrance to the car park and need to get it authorised at the check in so that you can get out.
The ground floor is nice and modern with a large restaurant and a bar which is part of the foyer. There are four lifts that take you up to the upper floors.
I found the bedrooms and the corridors, at least on the fourth floor where I was, stuffy and airless. The first thing I wanted to do was fling the windows open in my room, but then found that that you couldn't.
The bedroom was large and clean with a big double bed, a sofa bed with grey/brown upholstery, and an en suite bathroom with a bath with a mixer tap and a shower attachment. There was plenty of water pressure so the shower was fine.
I found the decor of the bedroom dull and characterless, perhaps bland would be a better word. The brown carpet which is similar to the one in the corridors is really quite depressing and 1970s in feel, however the room was spotlessly clean.
I stayed two nights and had dinner and breakfast there. On the first night the service at dinner was terribly slow and the group I was with had to wait at least half an hour for the dessert. On the second night the service was fine. The food was good.
For me this is nearly a four stars, but when I clicked on it it comes up with "very good" and I can't bring myself to say this hotel is "very good" so it's three stars from me. What lets it down is the airless bedroom and its dull decor and the slow service at dinner on that first night.

Room Tip: This is a tall building so the views from the top floors are fantastic

I was visiting Erasmus University, and this hotel is in walking distance to the University. Nice hotel with friendly staff. Decent breakfast in the morning. I also had dinner in the restaurant. It wasn't bad but I'd suggest you to go out.
The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable. Nothing unusual about the room, it meets your basic needs.
I don't know why a tourist would come to Rotterdam but if you're a tourist coming to the city, the hotel's location is not very attractive since there isn't anything to do around (to be fair things to do in Rotterdam are very limited). I'd suggest you to find a more tourist friendly hotel. If you're on a business trip and spend only few nights in the hotel, then it's a good hotel, nothing to complain about.

Like this modern hotel in the midst of university grounds but still a quiet place to stay. Parking is free, great in Europe. Close to the highway. Friendly staff, great breakfast.
Need more storage space in room (drawers) and bigger TV screen :-)
Overall a lovely place to stay. I will go back.
