The hotel is perfectly located in the town the rooms and the breakfast are a little basic but for the price you can't complain the wifi worked well whilst there and some updating of bathrooms and televisions as happened since my last stay. The staff are helpful and friendly and it helps when the women on duty whilst there was... More

This hotel has a brilliant location - right in the centre of town, on main street. But, apart from breakfast which is adequate the place unfortunately is very poor in most other departments. The rooms do not have have a fan never mind air conditioning. It was warm when I was there and in the nights it was quite stifling.... More

Hotel Cardinal is located perfectly right in the middle of a lovely leafy square in this great old town. Overall, this is a perfectly adequate place to stay for one or two nights during race meetings at the Spa, Francorchamps circuit which is located 10kms down the road. It is a clean, efficient hotel but do not expect any frills... More

The location is great, in the centre of Spa and close to all the attractions. But unless you like sleeping in a hostel style room with WiFi that doesn't work, a tiny portable TV and dated decor, then I suggest you look elsewhere. Nevertheless, it offers value, convenience and a decent buffet for breakfast - albeit with surly staff.

Hotel Cardinal I'm sure was once an aesthetically attractive, similar to the town of Spa.  Nonetheless, the hotel is greatly located in the centre - near the tourist info office,funicular to the thermes de spa, train station and casino.   We booked the room via booking.com and paid 97 Euros (maybe higher during high season) per night which included breakfast...

After a stay in Brugge and looking for an "off -the-beaten-path" countryside setting, we found a haven in Spa. Without reservations and hearing of a nearby F1 racetrack, we checked into the Hotel Cardinal in the center of Spa. The following amenities made for a delightful respite: located in the heart of downtown (casino, spa waterworks, restaurants, weekend flea market,... More
