I stayed at the Carbon Hotel for one night. The Carbon Style room was very spacious and the layout was unique compared to other (business) hotels I have stayed at. The dark colors combined with the ambient lightning were very nice. A high-quality flat screen TV and Bose sound dock were nice extras. The airco/heating system was difficult to control... More

This was a great hotel. I loved the decor, it was VERY clean and the rooms were bright. Plenty of good towels too. The downside was the price of breakfast. 35 Euros is way over the top. The price was not mentioned until I was checking out, or I would not have eaten it. The taxi driver said I should... More

Probably, Carbon is the best hotel to stay at when you're in Genk. I had a warm welcome (although my door key didn't seem to work - no apologies for me having to hurry downstairs again - I admit I was in a rush). The rooms are well decorated, but as often, in so-called Design Hotels the wear and tear... More

My partner and I spent a night at Carbon just two weeks ago. This was our second visit and even better than the first. All the staff were very attentive and helpful. We were given an upgrade in room which was a pleasant surprise. The room was spacious, modern and clean. The boxspring beds are very comfortable and the docking... More

Upon arrival at the Carbon Hotel we did get a free upgrade which was really nice. The room was really spacey with a view on the hotel garden. Its quirky design definitely ads to the experience, which I think is a good thing. It might not be practical but ah well, it is a weekend trip. Our main reason for... More

I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions on business and I have always found it provides a high quality service. The hotel is situated in central Genk, opposite the bus and rail station. The decor in the rooms reflects the hotel name with a predominantly black theme. Most rooms have a double bed and shower /... More

Nice room at first glance, but warm. The rooms are also not clean. To switch off the lights is a challenge, until you find the instructions (!). Breakfast is poor. This is overpriced for what it offers.
