“Photography Stop Over. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I have visited this hotel 3 times over the past 12 months. 2 of those times within the past 2 months. Excellent staff and very friendly. The parking is excellent. Just remember to get a code when you leave. The rooms are spotless. They are rather small rooms and the bunk bed is not made. It comes in 2 plastic bags for you to make yourself. That would be my only criticism. Apart from that you get what you pay for. Its a budget hotel providing budget rooms. Its cheap and cheerful. I would happily stay there again. When I visit with a few of us we only want a cheap place to sleep. Its right next to the airport. Thanks.

Hotel is well placed close to the airport...if you could walk directly it would take you 5 mins.. but I advise you do not until you have driven it first, otherwise you can get trapped by the fencing of the airport)
The staff are friendly, and helpful.
Restaurant is basic, but ok if you need a quick snack (like a pizza), but as you are in Belgium, you can get a can of Leffe from the vending machine :-)
Rooms are clean and functional, and have everything you need including free WIFI, flat screen TV, small desk, comfy bed and a shower.
The taxi service to the airport was timely and efficient, however arriving back on a Sunday evening at a busy time, was not so smooth, and I wasted an hour waiting for the taxi to come, before I finally got one from the rank at my own expense.
Not sure if I was just unlucky... the taxi company do not speak much English, so perhaps this was the issue...
In summary you get exactly what you expect.

Room Tip: If you like to watch the aircraft land.. (depending on wind)... take a room on the side of the recep...

you are close to the airport - but it may be more convenient to go to the real IBIS.

The restaurant is a bit special - do not expect anything.

However, if you do not want to spend a lot of money and if you are three people - the room does not invite to spend the whole day (but for a few hours sleep it serves the purpose).

We chose this hotel because our Ryan Air flight arrived late in the day and we didn't want to deal with a long commute to our hotel. The hotel is a 10 euro cab ride from Charleroi Airport, and a 15 euro cab ride to Charleroi Sud Train station. Without sidewalks, this hotel isn't really walkable from anywhere unless you don't mind hiking the busy roads around the airport.

The hotel itself isn't especially welcoming from the outside. When we arrived it took a while to figure out how to enter the hotel (a gate opens electronically, but it's in the hotel drive, not a door on the hotel). Inside the rooms are super-basic, but include a private toilet, sink, and shower. We had plenty of hot water, a working flat panel TV with decent channel selection, and a couple of towels. The room layout works well for 3 people (at least one child). For larger families, you'll have to book a couple of rooms (which works against the price advantage or the hotel).

The hotel offers vending machines that serve just about everything (hot meals, snacks, drinks, and beer)

Room Tip: They're all mirror images of each other from what we saw - there isn't much variety.

For the price and the location is good. The breakfast is like in the other Ibis Budget with flakes, jam and bread. The rooms are the old style. Need a refurbishment. Parking available for free. A little bit difficult to go out from the gate. You need a code but no one tell it.
