This hotel in the centre of town is very nice and stylish, The rooms are very clean and look very good. The beds are great and the internet is very fast. The price is very reasonable but you have to pay for any extra's like breakfast, parking and water.

I come often in this hotel for work. The rooms are very small but confortable and clean. The staff is very nice and helpful. The breakfast is not so big. It is very close to the square of Genk. The wi-fi works good.

The location is great, as the central place and three shopping centres are just around the corner. The excellent, must-see C-mine is nearby too. We went by car to C-mine, but I'm sure there must be bus-lines going there. And there's also the possibilty of renting a bike somewhere. The staff greeted us and was very friendly and correct. Our...
