I recently stayed here on my way from Toulouse back to Australia. No shuttle service was available, even though it is quite accessible to the airport. You need to add 30 euros to the price to cover this cost, so take this into account when choosing a transit hotel. I arrived at 20.30 by taxi, with really nowhere to go... More

Good value for money, room good enough, breakfast good enough. Had no problem with keycards, will gladly come again! And yes some things in the bathroom can use a little update, but all was clean and functionung. Service provided by employees was adequate.

I stayed for 4 nights in the Hobbit Hotel. For the price you pay, you get good value - a clean room, free wifi, free parking. You need the parking as without car, you will not be happy here. The breakfast is mediocre, so if you have a chance to grab a coffee elsewhere, you better do it.

The room was pretty clean but there was lots of noise from the outside and from the other rooms. The pillows were very uncomfortable and small. I took breakfast at 9 and when I got there almost every plates were empty and although there were servants around and checking they probably decided I was not worth the trouble. Got a... More

The Hobbit is a typical 3* hotel close (5/10 minutes drive) to Brussels Airport. It is clean and reasonably comfortable. Wi-Fi is free and good. The heating is by radiator and you need to move the curtain to get the full benefit. Good value but limited offering. The restaurant is for breakfast only so you have to find dinner for... More

Stayed one night here en route to central Europe. A pleasantly modern small hotel with helpful staff. Zaventem is near the airport and the hotel about 3 minutes off the motorway but in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms were comfortable but VERY HOT - tropical temperature. We switched off the radiator, opened the window and went out for something to... More

Not very far from international airport .. Nice breakfast and very gentle and friendly behavior of staff. It is not a big hotel . But this is perfect if you just want to drop in for 1-2 days . No restaurant available in hotel, so have to order dinner and lunch form outside if you are new to Brussels or... More

Hotel management done by couple. Nice people. Rooms are clean and beds are good. Free parking behind the hotel. Breakfast is good but more limited during weekend which is a pitty. No scrambled eggs nor bacon. The hotel has no bar but drinks are available. One remark, we tried to have a drink at 9h50 but reception was closed, while... More

Dear, I'm sorry about what happened, but it's not normal, the reception is open till 23.00H 7/7 365days/year, We are always available also during the night, in the rooms next to the telephone there's a card with the emergency numbers on it. About the breakfast during the weekend you forgot to mention that's not the same rate either, I'm sure... More

I have been staying here during my trip to Brussels and I am very happy about choosing this hotel. First of all, the crew is very, VERY nice and helpful and kind. They are really doing such a great work. Hotel rooms are quite standard, but cosy and clean - which was very important to me. Breakfast is good, fresh... More

Over past few years I've stayed in several hotels in the close vicinity of this one. Nowhere I was fully satisfied until here. Wifi signal and speed is excellent, the breakfast is fine and despite I stayed in winter time the room was warm. Bed was very comfortable and there was no distracting noise. There was even an electric kettel... More
