“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Myself and three friends stayed in the hotel for one night! It was extremely enjoyable and very comfortable! The rooms are very spacious and the staff are so kind and helpful. A free shuttle collected us from the Airport and the hotel manager even drove us to the train station the next day. Would definitely recommend it!

Finding nice accomodation in and around Charleroi Airport was not an easy task. Luckily we came across Hotel South on booking.com (55 euros per night as of January 2012) and going by its numerous great reviews on Trip Advisor, decided to stay there. On arrival in Charleroi (9pm) we called the Hotel and within 15 minutes the shuttle bus picked us up.

The Hotel itself is about 8-10 minutes from the Airport and is very convenient for those who need to catch early morning flights. On arrival we checked in and received the TV & Air Conditioning remotes. We hadn't eaten since taking off and we asked at the reception if there was anything open in the area. The receptionist, Jeremie, told us that there wasn't anything close but he offered to drive us over to a petrol station / snackbar by the Airport so that we could get something. We gratefully accepted and thanks again to Jeremie for his gracious manner :)

The room itself was really neat, well laid out and spotless. The bed was comfortable and we never heard any noise from the hallways. All in all we thought it was good value for money.

The only thing I would criticise about the Hotel is the breakfast (which is optional). At 8 euros per person I would really expect more than a selection of juices, croissants, bread and cold meats.

If you need to stay near Charleroi (Brussels South) airport this is the place. Simple but comfortable and immaculately clean rooms and a pleasant breakfast ensure a good night's sleep and a good start to the day. You may leave your car in the hotel car park for up to a week free of charge and the hotel runs a free shuttle bus service to and from the airport from 05.00 - 24.00 hrs. The staff are extremely friendly and very efficient.

There appeared to be little choice in the Charleroi area in terms of quality excepting perhaps this small Hotel situated in a residential area within a short drive of the centre? Previous reviews have proved correct; whilst basic the Hotel is clean, competitive and offers a decent breakfast. The real difference however is the service offered, in my case the offer of a lift to the only restaurant open on my late arrival on a Monday night plus collection after – almost unheard of in Hotel service history. Whether you need to stay in this area due to a local flight or are just ‘passing by’ this is a very good stay at very good prices.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor are larger - pay more for more space.

Loved the hotel, cause it was very comfortable. The shuttle bus was waiting right at the airport and took us to the hotel very fast. In front of the hotel is small shop, so u can grab smth to eat and drink there. It is in a very quiet area and windows have good covers so you can have a very good sleep befor your flight.

Hotel South is by far one of the warmest and friendliest hotel ever that my fiance and I had stayed in. We came in on a late night, right after when our backpack was stolen at the Brussels train station, and we were exhausted, hungry, despair and hopeless. All of our tickets, cash, and even an engagement ring, was gone! The hotel owner, Kevin, agreed to stay behind for our late night check in and even offered to make us a few sandwiches. He allowed us to reprint our tickets from his computer and his hospitality was superb. We checked in, the room was clean and it was equipped with everything that we need for that night of sadness. The next morning, he drove us to the airport for our morning flight to Venice where my fiance proposed with a ring that Kevin secretively gave to my fiance to propose to me, knowing that he has lost his from the backpack. This hotel is truly a gem and the service cannot be found anywhere in the world.

Our stay at Hotel South was brief as we were flying out early the next morning – but it was pleasant.

The folks that own/run the place were cheerful and helpful with everything we’d asked about. The rooms themselves were small, but functional and modern - however the wooden floors looked tired and scratched and had not been included in any recent updates.

We slept well in the beds and there were plenty of towels available for our use. The shutters on the windows are Velux and close to complete darkness which is perfect for jumping into bed earlier than normal to get sleep for an early airport visit.

The rooms did not offer a fridge or any Tea/Coffee making facilities, but at least there was a small shop and some restaurants nearby as Hotel South is in the middle of a residential area.

Everything went smoothly with the booking of our shuttle ride to the airport early the next morning and all in all it was an uneventful and pleasant experience at Hotel South.

Our room was on the top floor and although the room sloped (because of the roof) it was not too inconvenient. The benefit was 2 large windows could be opened out onto the roof to let plenty of fresh air in.

I’m flying back to Charleroi in the next few weeks and will book again with Hotel South for sure.

Room Tip: Book your shuttle slot asap as the early shuttles always book out quickly
