“For business just fine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

For business just fine: wellsized room (business), good bed, good breakfast. Friendly staff. Checkinn a bit of a fuzz. Bar not really cozy if thats what youre looking for. Lots of people from Erasmus University and trainings and so on.

I stayed one night at the Novotel after a long day of travel from the states. The room was clean a good size for what I'm accustomed to in Europe. The fitness room is small, but has enough machines to accommodate any flow without restriction. The hotel is clean and the breakfast hearty. What impressed me was the helpfulness of the hotel staff. They went out of their way to help me make reservations at my restaurant of choice and were very friendly during my check in, bar visit, and check out. Everyone was upbeat and had a smile on their face. I very much enjoyed my business visit and would stay here again. In fact, I have one more night booked on Wednesday when I come back from the UK for other meetings.

Just the kind of business hotel you need, kind people, flexible reception desk and good restaurant facilities. Fast internet which is free. My portable broke down so I had to use their iMac's in the reception area, which are great but somebody made a decision to have windows running on these beautiful Apple devices. As I was totally dependent upon these machines and their internet connection it was a pain that after once having renewed the connection of 20 minutes you had to login all from the beginning (registering from the start) again. But hey that said all in all this is a great hotel for an efficient business stay.

I and my Family stayed in end of December at this property to visit friend of ours in Rotterdam.
I experienced great hospitality service from heart form one of the service team members at the Breakfast restaurant from "Mr. Rachid", which I would like to share.

In the morning I did not feel very well and was not in the shape to go to breakfast, even though it was included in our room rate I decided to skip breakfast to have more time to recover.
My wife went alone with our child and enjoyed a great breakfast service; she called me during her meal to ask whether I feel better and if I really would not come down as the breakfast selection is very good.
Mr. Rachid overheard this conversation and asked my wife if everything is ok and well, and my wife explained him my situation. Mr. Rachid immediately asked if there is anything the hotel could do and offered my wife if she likes to bring some breakfast food to me to the room for me to enjoy later on.
Once offered and accepted by my wife the breakfast team arranged a nice tray with a juice, some water and healthy breakfast items, which my wife brought back to our room.
The next day I felt better and could enjoy the breakfast at the restaurant and Mr. Rachid remembering my wife, approached us and asked if I feel better already.

Having stayed in many hotels as well as 5 star luxury hotels and resorts, I have to say that this care and service really impressed me. In my eyes this is real Hospitality and I do hope that the breakfast team and Mr. Rachid will be able to receive recognition for their services.

In overall the entire Hotel offers great service, from check in to check out and has clean and spacious guest room facilities to offer. I can recommend this property to any leisure or business travellor.

If we will go back in 2014 to visit our friends again, it is without question that we know where we will be staying again.

Well Done!!!

Every year I have a business weekend in this hotel. Nice, cosy and renewaled this year. However the access to Rotterdam centre is not easy. If you come from foreighn country, and visit Rotterdam for sightseeing, I'll recommend to chose another hotel.
