Novotel Rennes Alma
Ranked #24 of 64 Hotels in Rennes

Reviewed 11 April 2013

This hotel is one of the better Novotels that we have stayed at. The room was very well equipped with a big bed, modern bathroom, separate WC. Tricky to find at the moment due to all the road works in progress but the location is convenient for a shopping centre and family type restaurants. The subway is a short walk away - one line only taking you directly into Rennes which is a lovely city to visit. Only criticism was the check in. The guy was not terribly interested in us and frankly I think a bit peeved that we interupted whatever he was doing. He gave us the keys and kind of pointed roughly in the direction while focussing on something else, that we were to go to find our room (which transpired was up the set of stairs to his right but was very difficult to understand what he meant). So we had to ask a second time. A simple 'please take the stairs on the right to find your room' would have been very helpful rather than a somewhat nebulous wave in the air. English/French would have been understood by us. But that was the only minor thing and you get that everywhere! We had a room service meal and it was very good - no complaints!

Room Tip: Book! We didn't and almost didn't get a room. Surprising in March but then again, it is a...

We (2 adults and 2 children) stopped over in the hotel for a night. The hotel is conveniently located next to a shopping centre and motorway. The room was clean and reasonable in size. Though the sofa bed is a bit small for 2 teenagers. The staff was helpful and friendly. We did not have a meal in the hotel.

Have stayed in this hotel many times, as its very convenient for the ferry ports Cherbourg, Caen, Roscoff and St Malo, its located on the the edge of a retail park with excellent shops. The Hotel is a basic old style Novotel which has recently been refurbished, we found it a great place to stay with the rooms being quite and comfortable with a pleasent bar and restaurant - when travelling in France again woill certainly stay here also excellent secure car parking which is not charged - only criticism is the cost of the breakfast which in my view is exhorbitant

Arrived at the hotel at 5pm after a long drive, where we had paid for an executive room. We went to our room only to find workmen all along the corridor changing all the locks on the doors! The amount of dust & debris was terrible and reception had'nt even bothered to check beforehand. we were moved to a different room on the ground floor. Rooms are just ok. Need attention to carpets etc which were pretty worn out looking. The next morning we went down for breakfast only to be greeted by a another load of workmen cleaning the carpets in and around the breakfast area! We went to reception to ask if there was breakfast and he basically told us 'non'!! It was only 9.45am!!And supposedly breakfast is served until 12. At €15 a head I was glad we didnt eat there because we found breakfast for €3.75 in the shopping centre (Carrefour) across the road! All in all, I wouldnt rush back to this hotel....totally different from the Novotel in Bilbao!
