I have stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions while visiting Mons on business and unfortunately do not think I will do so again. On a positive note the hotel is well located approx 10 minutes walk from the square and has a supermarket and convenience store very close by. The hotel is basic but very clean and breakfast is good in the mornings but would prefer if they started serving 30 minutes earlier. The main issue encountered is that on two occasions I have been given a room at the front of the hotel and it is impossible to sleep with the noise from passing traffic, sirens, night time revellers and in particular some mornings at approx 5am the refuse collectors decide to park outside with the engine running while they grab a coffee in the local convenience store and then proceed to empty the glass recycling bin which I suspect can be heard all over the city. In addition on my most recent stay during the summer the heat in the rooms was unbearable due to no air conditioning and it was a little bit irritating to see rooms advertised at reception which had air conditioning but which required an additional payment. Nice staff etc but when you cannot get a good nights sleep then it is hard to stay there again.…
We spend one night as a familly. The receptionist was very friendly. She arranged a familly-room for us even though I had trouble to previouly find for Mons in several booking systems. The Hôtel is clean, silent and well situated. Mons is a beautiful city. We spent the evening in Mons and went next day to the fabulous parc of Pairi Daiza.
Hotel Lido isn’t a 4 star anymore. It’s clean and fairly modern. But when the kitchenette at the room is poorly equipped for preparing food at night you don’t get what you order for. The breakfast is ok, but when it’s empty for egg and bacon and the answer is “it’s empty “ you don’t feel well taken care of. Where it’s located is it’s asset. But next time I will stay at Hotel Van Der Valk, which is modern.
Stayed here 1 night for work. The parking situation was a disaster. Very narrow entrance to the garage and anyway we were told the garage is full. We had to look for street parking. The hotel itself I would give maybe 2 stars. My room was not small but very spartan, not even a bottle of water. The door didn’t close properly, but I was too tired to deal with it so I just barricaded it. The sheets/the bed did not impress. Cheap linens. Barely any amenities in the bathroom - a used bar of soap presumably left from a prior guest, and some shampoo and soap, nothing else. No robe or slippers. Breakfast was sad. Several types of limp white bread, some pastries. I had to settle for a pistolet. No fresh juice, coffee came out of an airport-style machine (meaning overly sweet and premixed, and not suitable for anyone who cannot tolerate dairy). There were some eggs, yogurt, meat and cheese. Some fruit as well. On its face, choice, but most looked to be low quality, not interesting at all. I would most certainly never return and cannot recommend this place.…
We stayed in the hotel twice this summer – on our way to Spain 4-5 July and again on our way back 20-21 July. The location of the hotel offers easy access to the motorway and at the same time it is close to the city centre. The rooms are spacious and equipped with an electric kettle, tea and instant coffee. Rooms as well as bathrooms are clean, but the rooms are very hot and there was no air-condition. Breakfast was very nice.
This is my second stay in this hotel and I can highly recommend it. The rooms are spacious and clean, equipped with electric kettle, tee and instant coffee is available too. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. The hotel also offers good continental breakfast. It is close to the Old Town square, restaurants and shops.
Nice hotel, friendly staff, great breakfast & great location, just 5 minutes walk to the old town and its historic Square & great restaurants/shopping, and a 15-minute walk to the train station. Had a great stay, though the main drawback was we stayed during a heatwave so our room, on the top floor, got very hot as there was no air conditioning, only an ineffective electric fan. Turns out air conditioned rooms are available at extra cost - though we felt we'd paid a fair price already.
A pleasant hotel in a good location. It is a 5 mins walk in to the City Centre. Room was spacious. Good bathroom, again spacious. Was a little noisy, either from hearing activity in the next room or hearing the cars drive by on the road outside. Breakfast was an add on at €15 a day. Buffet style. A good selection. Starts at 7AM. Staff were very friendly and helpful
We booked a recent visit and seemed to get an upgrade to a boutique room on the side of the hotel - it was larger and better appointed than the usual rooms at the hotel which we have stayed in twice before . Overall we had a comfortable stay, we still have not had breakfast or used the very small bar area ( as we are visiting family and spend time withe them) . Overall a well located hotel.
Nice basic hotel, at reasonable value for money. Internet did not work. Negligible speed and tons of connection issues. In a business trip, 21st century, internet is a must. I complained to the front desk and the guy could not care less. Other than that, the rest was fine.
