“Good budget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Went to this hotel with my wife and a child of 2 years old for one night. They had placed an extra (double) bed for our daughter in the room making it a bit crowded but still easy to manoeuvre. The term express was very applicable when it came to checking in: it cost me exactly one minute. The room was adequate. On the streetside of the hotel but not noisy at all. The free wifi was easy to use and fast enough for normal browsing. The airco was a bit much since the air was way too dry in the room. The beds were not very comfortable. At 160 cm wide you can't really lie down without touching the person next to you all the time (and waking them up). Breakfast the next morning was adequate with plenty of bread, sereal, meat, fruit and drinks. They warned us the previous day that the breakfast room might be very busy but we had plenty of tables to choose from at 8:30 am. The location of the hotel proved to be excellent: the restaurants and shops were a little walk away.

Dear Guests
First of all thanks for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us.
It is always very motivating to read that guests loved their stay, the hotel and its facilities.
Concerning the room space and the measurements of the beds in the rooms, I want to mention that this is the standard for all Holiday Inn Express hotels what on their side make them budget friendly but always with great service.
We surely hope to welcome you and your family again on a next trip to Hasselt.
Best regards

We went there for a short visit and enjoyed our stay there. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I booked two rooms and called the reception to get two connected rooms and they were very helpful and could fulfill our request. Free WiFi is available. Free parking places are available as well and are located 5 minutes walking from the hotel.
If you go to Hasselt, I recommend the cinema in Hasselt sine it is very interesting especially that they play all movies in original version with French and Dutch subtitles.

Stay here for one night, pay 69 Euro only for a double during a weekend and you will not be robbed. Basic rooms but with all you need, good wifi, good breakfast for this kind of money it's very much ok. Fast and friendly check in and check out. Two remarks tough : you depend a bit on the good will off other guests not to make to much noise, corridor are not sound proof towards the room and we found the double bed a bit small.

Room Tip: at the back, no street noise

Dear Guests
thank you very much for taking the time to write a report on your stay with us in Hasselt.
It is always nice to read that guests were satisfied with the service we provide and of course very useful to others guests on their search to find a nice hotel in the region of Hasselt to stay if not yet decided where to stay.
The size of the beds for a Holiday Inn Express is however standard so we cannot do much about that. Nevertheless every comment is very useful to us, it is the only way how we can improve our service there where necessary.
Kind regards

We chose the HI Express above the Holiday Inn in Hasselt where we stayed previously as this one had parking at the front. The hotel was in a good location close to the city centre but with little street noise. The rooms where clean and typically Holiday Inn Express size just enough room that makes for a comfortable stay. The staff were friendly (even offering that we could use the pool at the near-by Holiday Inn) and the breakfast pretty basic but free. In summary a comfortable and value-for-money place to stay that provides all you need.

Room Tip: We liked high-up front facing as there was no noise ad we could see our parked car
