  • 2.0.Poor

    Hotel is OK, rooms are very small but the worst is that they double charge me for breakfast. I booked on Expedia breakfast included for two nights two people. Lady at reception when I was checking in told me ok but when I was checking out the guy charged my card 76 Euros for breakfast. It was 5 min to the shuttle bus and wasn’t time to argue but that’s terrible. Never happened before.

    This property is double charging for already paid breakfast. They took 100 euros deposit at check in for that I am sure! And at check out when you rushing to airport they charge you 19 euros for each person every day even it was already prepaid. Terrible. First time happening with me and my partner

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    THE BREAKFAST. I'm not sure if it's because all American breakfasts suck at hotels but this was a really nice addition for only 10 euro. The room was cute and small and the lady at the front desk was nice but the guy at the front desk (the bald one I think) was annoyed at me. I would say they need to label the food. But they were quick to get me into a room and answer questions. I really enjoyed my stay there.

  • 6.0.Good

    I don’t recommend! Small and inconvenient

    I would not recommend this place for a comfortable pleasing stay, the rooms were so small and the bathroom has almost no privacy from the impractical sliding doors. It states it has 24 hour room service but it doesn’t say that this isn’t available at the weekend. After a 12 hour drive i was looking forward to some hot food and drinks but this wasn’t possible. I would recommend to stay somewhere else! The person who checked me in was also very sarcastic and not so helpful when I questioned why the restaurant was closed as it does not say so on the advertisement.

    The room is a little small, but other than that, I have no complain. The hotel is quiet and the staff is very nice.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Very uncomfortable

    We stayed in this hotel on our overnight layover in Brussels. The hotel is nice and close to the airport and had a shuttle service to the airport which was very convenient but it was extremely uncomfortable to sleep in because they had no air conditioner and it was a pretty warm night. My husband was unable to sleep well even after a cold shower I don’t think it is fair to not give the paying customer the option of having a/c or at least a ceiling fan in the room
