“Nice Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

This hotel was very close to everything. It was my first experience in europe and I felt the bathroom was rather small, but later I discovered it was the standard. Nearby to workplaces and parks, I felt it was an excellent location.

Accommodation is very good, a pity then that the catering let's it down. We were told prior to arriving that a range of hot food would be available but this was not the case. Despite a comprehensive bar menu on the tables they were not able to provide one hot meal.

We stayed for two nights. On the first morning breakfast was served in the Dublin room and was very good and we were on the point of forgiving them for the evening fiasco but the second morning the breakfast room was given priority to a large party of German tourists and we were shunted into another room with only a basic offering.

If the catering was sorted this hotel would deserve the four stars it claims, but with the chaotic approach to the provision of food it cannot seriously be considered to be in this category. The management needs to pull its socks up.

Room Tip: Lifts are small and inadequate (only two). Choose a room on the lower floors so you do not have to c...

I stayed one night in this hotel in June 2014. The receptionist was very friendly on my arrival, the
room was comfortable and spacious. There is BBC and ITV! Room service excellent. Breakfast very good. All in all a great mini break!

We loved this hotel - great size rooms, comfy beds, arctic aircon (great for sleeping), FREE wifi, super friendly & helpful staff, good bathroom, full buffet breakfast offered, quiet location, excellent bar food/ room service meals, close to a select few quite nice restaurants and a Laundromat (very handy). Quite close to the airport but not so close to major city areas such as Brussels or Antwerp but as we were in town for Tomorrowland, this was not really an issue. My fave hotel on this Europe trip!

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that the dining room is so crampy-it's almost impossible to find a vacant, clean table for breakfast.

The hotel is nice and clean and the beds are really comfy, we couldn't hear guests in the other rooms, the staff were helpful but the hotel isn't ideal for exploring the city, the buses are regular but take about 30 minutes to get to the centre, taxis were on average €25 euros from the centre. There's a supermarket nearby which is handy and the restaurant across the road is nice.

We stayed here for over a month while looking for a home in Belgium.

Very easy to hop on the bus and take it any direction.

Within walking distant to shops and restaurants.

The in house restaurant served good food and the room service was an added bonus.

Typical Belgian breakfast which was good but we ventured out typically.

The rooms were nice, tidy and clean. We did not hear other guests in their rooms, only in the hallways at times.

Housekeeping was always very polite and the staff was friendly.

We felt very welcomed at the Belson.
