“Decent business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

The hotel has ample parking space. The welcome was warm and friendly. I stayed for 2 nights and found the breakfast disappointing. The first day the service level during breakfast was really not friendly. The second day there was no fruit at some point and the staff just did not put more fruit. If they improve the breakfast service level, I would rate them higher. Everything else was perfectly fine however.

Whilst working in Rotterdam, I have stayed at varous hotels in the Schiedam area and have to say the Novotel is my favourite. It is located just off the motorway, and perhaps too far from Schiedam centre to walk (tram stop close by), but hotel has a good bar and a fantastic restaurant. Room service also offered at no extra charge.

Typical of novotel this hotel is clean, smoke free and child friendly. We've found novotel one of the few places that will allow our two children to be in the same room as us, dramatically reducing the price of a hotel stay. From check in to check out the staff were friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was extensive and very tasty, with gluten free breads for our daughter. Evening meals were also good. Only downside is the location which is on the edge of a suburb next to a the Rotterdam ring road but transport links were reasonable and noise wasn't an issue. The building is really old fashoined from the outside but inside has classic novotel contemporary style. We'd stay again.

Went for 2 days, hotel room very tiny, Reception Area is ok, but Receptionist are really scatty and did not have a clue about her own environment and area. In the gardens were not maintained at all, no flowers or plants, wires all over the place, thats why they have special offers on. The best thing was the room service.

The taxi's were expensive so the price you save on the hotel, you may as well get one closer to Rotterdam central. Its about a 10-15 minute walk to the Metro.

Takes about 45 by train into Amsterdam Central. Trains from Amsterdam to Rotterdam run 24 hours a day, but the local trains am trams in Rotterdamvstops running at 1am.

I would not go back to this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for one night after a flight into Schiphol and before another one out of Rotterdam airport. Getting here from AMS is easy unless there is construction works on the railway. In our case there was, so the trip turned out to be a 150 minute ordeal instead of a simple 55 minute train ride. The hotel is close to the train station, and only a 15 minutes' walk from the Schiedam windmills. Rotterdam airport is a short taxi ride away. (26 EUR)
Check in went smoothly and quickly despite the very late arrival. Our room was clean and a good size, even for 2 adults and 2 children. We got the good rest we needed after the long intercontinental flight but didn't have a chance to try other facilities.

I arrived yesterday to my room and needed to print off my press pass ...no internet connection grr.

I made my way to the conference at the world trade centre about 20 mins away in a cab and did what i had to do.

On my arrival it is snowing and in freezing temperatures I see a pile of blankets on the reception counter - apparently the heating broke down at 4pm?

Upon speaking to the manager we would not have heating through the night nor did we all day.

It was uncomfortable and totally unacceptable - i didnt shower last night because it was too cold.

The manager did offer me a free evening meal but to be honest this is totally unacceptable in such temperatures i would have thought a chain of this alleged prestige should have emergeny call out/back up.
