This hotel is so convenient for the SNCB station being just the other side of the canal from the station. English is spoken by all the staff and all are very helpful. If you have a room in the front of the hotel (the majority) there is a slight background noise from the elevated motorway but not enough to keep... More

Well, unless you really have to stay local to here, avoid, avoid avoid! Right in the middle of a red light district! We took a stroll around the vicinity of the hotel and were surrounded by drug addicts, prostitutes and their clients. Other people making their way to the station were clearly unsettled and walk as quickly as possible not... More

If you are visiting the hotel in Spring 2014 try to avoid the station facing rooms. There are major construction works taking place and diggers and heavy plant start work at 7:00 AM. We stayed at a room facing away from the works and were not disturbed. This is a standard Ibis with rediculously expensive breakfast. The car park costs... More

It is difficult to find new ways of describing an IBIS hotel as they are normally all up to a high standard. The hotel is opposite the rail/tram/bus interchange so little walking is needed. the hotel is quiet as the interchange area is separated by a canal. the town area is being pedestrianised so no heavy traffic passes. We did... More

Great location and that's really it. It's an Ibis so you shouldn't expect too much. Staff was very courteous and that was the only high apart from location. Room was quite small, very tired and not exactly clean. The breakfast was so-so. As an overnight stay it was OK though.

Despite the warm remarks about the town in the review from Deantuam, Charleroi by most people's standards is a bit of a dump. And it has been since I first went there in the 1970s. So if you don't plan to spend very long there, why not make do with a cheap and shabby hotel? Climb narrow stairs with a... More

Mention Charleroi to most people and they think 'RyanAir hub en route to Brussels.' And that's a pity. Because Charleroi itself, it's upper and lower town from Place Charles II right down to Quai de Flandre has lots to offer. It's an ideal destination for a weekend break in its own right. And an excellent place to stay is Ibis... More

As usual with Ibis's, the hotel was very clean, staff were courteous and I could not fault it. The location is excellent for the train station or if you want to wander into town. The road in front of the hotel is presently dug up, but that make's it quieter there with no passing traffic.

I'm well surprised from Charleroi Ibis hote. The location is more then perfect when you have to take the train early in the morning. There is great view from the rooms, you can see the night view of the station (which is really nice). The service was good, although only one person was good in english. Value is quite normal.
