The location was ideal and the facilities very good with a restaurant and bar on site. The bus to get there was on time and efficient but finding it at the airport was a little difficult at first as the directions from the hotel do not tell you where to get it and it is mis-marked at the airport. Hotel shuttle signs poit you to the left when in fact the hotel shuttle bus is all the way to the right with the standard buses. Do make sure you ask someone. It is a regular bus with the "Novotel Hotel" name on it but it makes a loop serving several hotels.

Very clean and convenient location to airport. Slow and understaffed for check in, very rude on check out. In general, staff at restaurant were pleasant, but front desk was not at all welcoming.

Dear Guest, We are grateful to you for taking the time to share your review. It is nice to know that you found our location to be convenient for the airport. We are however very concerned about the experience which you had with our reception team. I will personally be investigating the matter and make sure this does not happen again as we attach great importance to customer satisfaction. Nevertheless, we thank you for highlighting the high standards which our hotel upholds when it comes to hygiene. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards,

Overall Stay was great

Pros: Quiet
Computer access was great, however the printer was out of order so couldn't print off the plane tickets as we had hoped. Also, there wasn't a free breakfast.

Perfect for a stay to catch airplane early next morning

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet, helpful staffs, quadruple, efficient services, airport shuttle, value
I picked Novotel Brussels Airport just because of the convenience and the price. It was just perfect for us to stay in order to catch an airplane early next morning. I felt very much saved with their attentive, and quick service after traveling in trains with two teen aged children all day long. Since Brussels airport is located about 10minutes train ride from Brussels central station, I would recommend this hotel for family getaway base as well. I arrived at the hotel around 11:30pm by shuttel bus from Brussels airport. The bus was very easily found at the airport and the bus driver was kindly helped us up and unloading our luggage. At the reception, I gave the print out of the reservation, and the check-in was very fast and smooth. The receptionist even let me do the check-out at the same time to save time next morning. The room was for 2 adults and 2 children. The room was overall clean. The carpet was not to my expectation to gain my 5 (meaning sparkling clearn), but clean enough to walk around on barefoot. I had my children in a sofa that turns into two single beds. There is not much room to walk around, but enough room for suit cases, and get things done. My bed was a firm side, but I like it firm anyway! The bath room was clean. The bath tub was a tiny bit narrow, but deeper compared to the standard ones you can find in the US, and I even made a bath for myself! The shower had good pressure, and had no problem taking shower in the morning. I did not have enough energy to read how to set up the alarm clock by the time I was ready for a sleep, the front desk had set it up for me when I rang. What a saver! I was very pleased with the selection of the breakfast buffet. My children were happy they had fresh grapefruit juice. I was very happy that they had hot meal choices such as eggs, sausages, and bacon. There were good variety of fresh fruits, yogurt, pasteries, and rolls as well. We were all recharged well for another long way on the airplane. I just stayed there only 7hours, but the experience with them was "fast, helpful and efficient". It is affordable, and every penny was worth paying for it. Since I am usually traveling with 2 teens, it has to come with good breakfast, clean room, enough hot shower water, and quick and efficient service, I definetely recommend this hotel for "one-nighter" or a getaway for the family with teen age children. I was not there long enough to judge for other travel groups, or to think of any complaint.
