Great Hotel in a Great Location

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

This is a great hotel right in the heart of Brussels with easy access to the shops and restaurants in the centre. Breakfast is good with a nice selection of breads, pastries, fruit, cheese and meat plus a small hot section with bacon and scrambled eggs. Rooms are clean and extremely well maintained. The only lightly negative thing is that, being in the centre, there is ocasionally some noise at night from the square outside. However, the windows cut out almost all of it and during my four night stay it was a minor annoyance only once. I'd certainly be very happy staying here again.

Dear Roger M., Thank you for this review of your recent stay. We are pleased to know that your room and bed met your satisfaction. We regret to hear of the issue with the toilet, thank you for making us aware of this, our maintenance team are now investigating. Regarding the noise from outside, we are sorry for the inconvenience, we do urge our guests to let us know of any issues during their stay so that we can find an immediate solution, our team would have been happy to relocate you to a quieter room, depending on availability Otherwise we are happy that you enjoyed our facilities and location, and that you enjoyed our tasty breakfast. We are looking forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes, Jurgen Van der Haegen, General Manager

Conveniently Situated

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Robert H. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We found the hotel convenient for all of our excursions and sightseeing. The room was clean and well appointed. The downside was the external noise. Building work is taking place immediately outside the hotel. Additionally, 3 hotels inc Novotel are located together and the ealry morning noise of rubbish and recycling collection is very intrusive.

Dear Robert H., Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. It was a pleasure to receive your positive feedback regarding our facility and central location. We would like to clarify that the works are not part of our hotel but in another part of the building that we occupy. We hope that this did not cause you any inconvenience. Thank you for noting our team's great service; we are always happy to assist in making each guest's stay as pleasant as possible! We do hope to welcome you back for an improved experience. Best wishes, Jurgen Van der Haegen, General Manager

Pamela M. Friends - Confirmed reviews ALL

Very well locted, very helpful staff, very nice-sized room, with good facilities. The sink in the bathroom is not very convenient as water tends to spill onto the surround. Would be good to have a soap dish, for putting the soap, after you have used it to wash your hands.

Dear Pamela M., Thank you very much for your review. We are grateful for your kind comments about our dedicated team who work hard to ensure we deliver the best service for our guests. Housekeeping has been informed about the replenishment of complimentary toiletries and we thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Good accomodation, nice and clean room . Excellent service at the front desk. Breakfast ok, apart from defect coffee machines, two days in a row but that wasn't a real showstopper.

Dear Louis C., We appreciate your candid feedback. We are very glad to know that you were pleased with your stay. We have noted your comments regarding our breakfast, and we appreciate your suggestions for improvement. Thank you once again. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back.

Clean, modern and in the absolute heart of Brussels / Grand Place!

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Bill M. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

My wife and I had a nice experience with Novotel Off Grand Place. The room was wonderful! My only complaint was that a microwave to reheat food would've been very convenient. But overall a great room. Our room was stocked with a mini-bar of snacks, booze, etc that was included in the room rate! Didn't expect that. Although we didn't use the TV, it was really enormous - at least 55". The view out the window to the Courtyard was really nice. I like that the WC was separate from the shower (although a sink in there would've been nice - maybe that's a European thing). The room looked to be flawless in regard to it's look - I think the hotel was recently refurbished. The lobby is bright, very clean and modern. Even had a really nice pleasant smell they pump in. It has a small restaurant and bar as well as a large fridge with drinks, booze and snacks for convenient purchase. The only issue was some renovation (noise) was going on and the saws and such were heard into the rooms on occasion. The location was PERFECT - even better than the Warwick. You step outside into a complete experience - right outside the door. Also only a block to Central train station which was very convenient. I think the value for the money is very good at Novotel! We stayed at a nearby hotel the first few nights and while it was very nice, it was about 2x the price. Service was fine. I wouldn't rave but there were also no issues. Overall, a very good choice and a strong recommendation.

Dear Bill M., Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We do value all the feedback we receive, we have taken good note of your comments in relation to the floors and mirrors in our rooms, rest assured we will consider these in the future. Our hotel aims to provide high-quality service and a memorable experience to our every guest, so it is rewarding to read that you enjoyed your time with us. We will not hesitate to pass on your comments to our reception team member who will be thrilled to know her efforts were recognised. Thank you again. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Jurgen Van der Haegen, General Manager

Quiet room - as requested

Customer review rating 4.0/5

G L. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

I asked for quiet room floor 5 and this is what we were given . 1 slight irritation was that there was a persistent smell of drains from bathroom/toilet area. This lingered all the time despite leaving window open and air con being on. Was however pleased that we were placed near end of quiet corridor.

Dear Gaenor L., Thank you very much for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed its tranquillity. We're sorry for the issue you mention; this is not a problem we have been notified of but will most definitely be looking into. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

We really enjoyed our stay at Novotel. Location is great, just a few steps from the Grand Place. The room was big enough for the two of us, clean and quite. Stuff was very nice and helpful. We definitely reccomend it.

The only problem here is the hotel is far too warm. This doesn’t stop me from staying here but the inside temperature is problematic. The rest of it is great - good location, easy parking and great staff.

We do try to make sure all our guests have the best experience they can with us and are glad our high standards met your expectations. Don't hesitate to inform our team of any concerns you may have, we are always on-hand to assist with adjusting the controls to find the ideal temperature for you. Kevin Martens, General Manager
