The room was ok, clean enough with plenty of space and a good view from the window. A mini-bar was definitely missing, forcing customers to buy drinks and food downstairs at reception and bring them to their rooms. The staff was attentive and the service offered was consistent with the standards. The restaurant offered a very good breakfast, while the dinner option was not on the same level, though acceptable.

I stayed for one night on a business trip and stayed here due to it's proximity to the office I was working in.

Reception and the check in process was swift and efficient, price charged reasonable in comparison to other European hotels I have stayed in.

My room was spacious with ample storage and also good facilities for me to work. Free internet was fine, reasonably quick and stable. Only slight issue was the cleanliness of the bathroom with hair from a previous occupant and some residue in the washbasin.

Evening meal was mediocre, not great. The menu was fairly limited and service pretty poor, I had to get out of my seat to summon a waiter. For the sole diner there are individual cubicles with TV and headphones which was an interesting and novel concept. Shame the poor service let the restaurant down, I wouldn't rush back there to eat.

Breakfast however was fine, typically buffet with plenty of choice.

The restaurant had a terrace which looked nice for a warm evening.

Not sure whether there was a gym, also there did not appear to be anything much in the vicinity of the hotel but the city centre was accessible by nearby public transport.

It was fine for a short business trip and I would return.

Room Tip: I asked to be located away from the elevator, I was in room 1010 and it was quiet.

For our visit to the Erasmus University I decided to stay in Novotel Brainpark as it is nextdoor. When the weather suddenly became nice, which is a rare treat this summer in The Netherlands, I started to wonder why I didn't make sure the hotel had aircon and a terrace for outside lunch or coffee. I should not have worried as the Novotel Brainpark not only had aircon (of course) but also a nice terrace. Our stay was great, close to the university, easy access with public transportation to the city centre to look for possible rooms to rent for a student, comfortable spacious rooms, wifi and great food and drinks.

Room Tip: Any room is good.

The hotel was very clean, with comfortable rooms and a big buffet for breakfast (ample choices of food). The room was equipped with nice furniture as well. Also the common areas are well maintained. I definitely suggest this hotel if you wanna go to Rotterdam. Moreover the metro stop is near.

Seriously. This hotel is fine, it's near the campus, etc. But seriously. Every 10 minutes the internet craps out. FIX IT!!!! I've never experienced some many drops through a one hour skype call, or through streaming music.
