        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children

          Poor public transportation available. A possible shuttleservice to Cs would be ideal, even every hour.

          As above mentioned. As a club member I expect the Same facilities even booking through other agencies,still staying in the beloved hotel.

          Excellent hotel in ideal position close to motorway systems and very handy for Rotterdam metro services.

          • Average rating
        • Couple

          The staff were very professional and the hotel food and services were excellent.

          The location was a good walk from the centre.

          • Average rating
        • Family with children

          The overall experience was very good. Room clean and of a good size. Room included an additional bed-sofa which was already made up and ready for use. Breakfast: good selection of fresh quality foods. Reasonable price which included internet & parking (which can set you back easily 30 Euro per night in other hotels). Distance to the city: 5-10 minutes by car. We did not try the restaurant for dinner.

          The coffee (espresso) could be better.

        • Family with children

          Great hotel sfaff, friendly and helpful. Speaks excellent English. Breakfast was fairly good. Rooms are big.

          The hotel facilities are not as nice as you see oh photos, cheap bed linens, plastic cups in the room etc. Breakfast was fairly good, but not dinner, all dishes are obviously not home made.

          Perfect hotel in terms of quality of services

          Nothing except it needs transportaion to reach city centre

        • Single

          Everything (except the location) quite above average : an ideal luxurious business hotel.

          Distance from downtown requires either taxi drives or problematic and expensive parking ! But it's the only flaw !

          Good green surroundings, quiet, and standard novotel design!

        • Family with children

          It is very close to Erasmus university and perfect if you are visiting the school. It is also very convenient and close to the city by tram. I drove there, so I also appreciated having free parking. The room was very comfortable and I had a great view of the city. I will go back and stay if my kids choose the university.

          it would be great if breakfast was served till 10, rather than 9. The was construction going on in the building, so it was a bit noisy when we got there, but nice and quiet in the night.

          - The price in the website was not the same that they charged me at check out . we booked for triple for a fixed price but this hotel asked us +20euro for the third person.

          - we have booked a room for 3 persons via but when we anted to pay for check out they charged +20euro for extra supplement and they say this is because of one extra bed? I really don't know when you book your hotel for triple bed for a fix amount why they ask extra for one bed extra?

          All was good except I been staying alot of times in novotel hotel's in london, uk and etc. So comparing to them the buffet breakfast was not as good as the other novotel hotel'S.

        • Older travelers

          The services at this hotel are excellent.The restaurant is very good: the variety wide, the preparation impecable and the service quick. We have eaten here for dinner or a quick lunch many times. The staff is professional and helpful and the rooms large, clean and comfortable. Although it is not in Center, the tram way is not far and is direct. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rotterdam and especially Erasmus University as it is right next door.

          The proximity to the Erasmus campus, good restaurant and tram connections for center.
