The hotel has an excellent location, close to the city center and the railway station. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We checked into a deluxe room which had both a bath and a shower. The rooms are also a little larger than the standard ones but they're not that big actually.
Wireless internet is free of charge and was offered to us together with the room keys, no need to ask.
After all this we were really looking forward to our stay at ECU Genk, but the beds were terrible, there was a lot of light coming in from the street lights and the heating made a terrible loud noise every now and then. This was really disappointing as the rooms don't come very cheap.
I hate to say this, but I would recommend the carbon hotel instead.
