“A little bit worse F1 standard”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We've chosen this hotel for our journey to Brussels via Charleroi Airport. The journey from the airport was quite difficult - there's no direct line, so you need to change between the lines in the shabby Charleroi centre - you spend 4,7€ to get there. The hotel itself wasn't bad, but it was quite untidy. What's more, the bed smelled from cigarettes and I wasn't really sure if all the cleanliness was as it should had been, but not a disaster. Shower and WC facilities all right. Don't buy coffee in the machine downstairs - not worth it at all. About 15 minutes by foot to a supermarket in centre of Gosselies, but be aware - all the shops in Gosselies close at 8 p.m. An advice for travellers to Brussels: 15-minutes by foot is located the Courcelles-Motte rail station (turn left on the main road in front of the hotel) with good connection to Brussels with one change in Luttre. (check www.sncb.be) The ticket costs 7,3€ (9€ from Charleroi Sud) and is available at the conductor.

I booked to catch an early plane in Charleroi. The pillow and sheets smelled like an ashtray, it was horrible. My guess is that someone, somewhere, sometime smoked in that room and the smell went into the beds but they didn't bother to change the matress, nor the pillows so you feel like you sleep in an ashtray.
Don't go there!

The room and bed were satisfactory. The toilets could have been cleaner - automatic cleaner doesn't quite do the job. Breakfast only passable- definitely not 5€ worth. Hotel-provided taxi service was atrocious. We phoned and were told it would collect us in 15 minutes. 2 phone calls and 1 and a half hours later, different company and surly driver arrived to tick us off for not waiting outside . We are 2 female pensioners and it was after midnight and cold. We were watching for the taxi all the time from just inside the doors - with no seating.

The hotel seem to be the best choice for budget travellers planning to stay at Charleroi, not very far from the airport. Rooms are tidy and clean and service fully satisfactory, worth its price. The hotel is not at noisy location as some Formula hotels are. You shall find basic breakfast available as well as microwave where you can cook yourself.

Room, corridors, front entrance and bathrooms smelled of cigarette smoke. Rooms looked worn out and shower/washroom facilities were poorly maintained. Front staff were terrific but the hotel was in embarrassing shape. I have stayed in several Formule 1 hotels in the past. This is the worst one I've been in and I will not likely use Formule 1 again.
