If you drive into the city, the location is pretty great along the Rhine, easy to find, central with a 15 min walk to alt stadt, and with a convenient parking. The rooms were small for the price (we were in a premium three people room with pull-out sofa bed and could open only 1 suitcase at a time!) and not fully insulated from the street traffic noise. Hotel makes noticeable efforts to welcome families, with a (small) play area for kids and a little toy at check in.
I was not able to try the breakfast buffet as Novotel chose to not honor the promotion I was eligible for, called Early Break if you book 21 days in advance. They blamed it on a rate error (I paid more and did not lock the promotion according to them) and just ended up discounting the breakfast to 10 Euros per person instead of 17. I declined their offer as I was still aggravated by the situation, and 17 Euros for breakfast is grand thief larceny.
