Recent guest reviews

I have been at this hotel now several times, both, for business and private reasons during the last five years. The hotel has kept is excellent standard in quality and service. Location is great of city trips, close to the center. Reach by public transport and cars easy. Friendly staff, high quality of food.

I booked two rooms for four nights (8 nights total). Had to prepay on the website. Various websites all show “air conditioning” for the hotel but in reality it is “air cooled”. Upon arrival our rooms were probably around 30C more, basically sweltering. After a few hours it was obvious that staying in the sweat box for four days was not an option. We spoke to the front desk who had no solution other than a fan and suggested we call back for the GM in terms of discussing a partial refund. We moved to another hotel which has amazing air conditioning by the way. I called the next day and spoke to someone who said they had to connect me to reservations before I would be able to speak to the GM. That person, someone named Burt, agreed nothing more could be done and took the position that their air cooled system was operating normally so he would not allow any refund at all - he offered me a 5% reduction (seriously?). That was all the hotel would do to make amends so as I told them I would instead post here and take it up with my CC company. Pros - good hotel for weight loss / free sauna (your room). Cons - location isn’t ideal, hotel doesn’t do whatever they can to “make it right”, management is not accessible.

Great hotel. In a good location with nice restaurants around and easy 5 minute train into the old town. Like all Novotels the only downside is their air conditioning in the rooms. It didn’t work this time again! The room was hot and stuffy and we were unable to open the window so we didn’t get a good nights sleep. The rooms all have control panels to control the air con but they may as well not because they never do anything. We always place on the coldest setting but with zero effect.

My wife goes to a medical clinic near the hotel and this is the second time we have stayed there for an extended time. The suite we had there has two large modern rooms with a free mini bar and an excellent view from the eighth floor. The master bathroom is huge with two sinks, a bathtub and walk in shower, and there is a second bathroom in the living room area. . And the price for a suite was very reasonable. Everyone on the staff from Bert Doosje the General Manager, who is out talking with guests to make sure everything is fine, to Florian and Birte, several of the great wait staff who took great care of us, and Paulo the head bartender were great and help make it an enjoyable experience. The breakfast buffet is extensive with just about anything you could want for breakfast. It is one of our favorite hotels now and we can highly recommend it. You won’t find better hotel in Hannover.

Well located if you want to have a walk in the park/forest nearby, this hotel doesn't look really modern from outside but it is actually much better from the inside! Rooms are fairly modern even if mine was tiny (avoid the rooms 101, 201, 301,etc...). The gym was decent and the wellness centre looked nice. The breakfast was pretty good so all in all, it is a good place to stay for 1 or 2 nights.

It is the best hotel in Hannover through the best location, comfortable and clean rooms, delicious breakfast, nice lobby cafe and bar, and easy access. The whole staff and management are very friendly, professional, helpful, optimizing your expectations and needs.

Stayed in two four berth rooms - after a mix up in room we stayed two nights in these spacious suites with everything we needed. Microwave, fridge, sink area separate from bathroom, bathroom with bath and shower, good tv , desk. Downstairs with kids area, friendly staff. Central location beside train station. Quiet rooms.

Very nice hotel in the city center and close to many attractions and several parking options nearby. The room was quite big and comfortable for 3 persons. Only one minor detail at this hotel, as one of our two room cards continueously didn’t work properly even after several rescans, otherwise a very plesant stay at Novotel Suites.

Clean and modern hotel with very good facilities. The rooms are clean, quite spacious, and well equipped. Internet and computer accesses for business purposes are given. The proposed breakfast gave a lot of possibilities and the food quality was irreproachable. Staff at the reception was friendly and efficient. Close to the U-Bahn Lister Platz station. Good address.

The hotel is very stylish and nice - but please avoid the restaurant. Only few tables were taken on a friday night - and the food tasted like micro wave food. I could not see any happy faces among the few people there. My wife had a Potato-Brokoli Gratin - with absolutely no cheese, my chicken involtini were nice, but the pasta was Luke warm - and tasted like micro wave food. A shame really, as the menu was really promising. I really thanked to God that I did not pick the "Schweinshaxe" - one of my favourites, as the guy on the next table returned it after few bites. I already hated the look of it. Nicole and left, our meals on the table, my Radler undrunk. What a waste in such a nice hotel.
