“On the expensive side for a simple stop over hotel”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Nice to be picked up at the airport but the room was pretty basic for the price - about 100 euros, breakfast not included. Otherwise conveniently located a few minutes' drive from the airport. Minibus driver was friendly enough in a non-vocal kind of way.

Lovely stay this hotel has lovely decor and furnishings its designed very well. There is a TV area that was just outside our room where you can watch DVDs on big leather beds I was that relaxed I fell asleep on it. Breakfast was nice in the little dining room. Staff were friendly they picked us up from the airport in a big air conditioned Mercedes van and it was boiling when we arrived. The little restaurant on the next block was excellent value for money and very busy all families celebrating. Behind the hotel is a little pond where you can sit if its nice out and a shop next door. All in all so glad we chose this hotel Fab little break.

Room Tip: Get a loft room

From booking, to receiving my car, the service offered by Hotel South ( Jeffrie in particular ) was as good as it can get. Every questioned was answered, any assistence required Jeffrie was there. Free internet also available.Yes, it's not the Hilton, but it is perfect for the P/S/Fly...my room was road side, it is extremely noisy, so try to get a room on the opposite. Breakfast was continental, but was never the less, just what was needed.Oh and if you are needing a bite to eat, the Italian restaurant 300 metres further up ( it's only a small one ) is very nice, i had the schnitzel ( escalope ), very tasty.
I for 1, will come here again....last time i used VdeV....little more expensive, but internet you had to pay for, shuttle, advertised as free...no you have to pay €4 per person per trip....also ripped my leather jacket on the hotel room door.....was told, not our problem, send e-mail to van der valk...HOTEL SOUTH, will see you soon.

Arrived 7pm and was out at 5:20am. Dropped the rental car off at the airport and called for a pickup and was lucky car was at the airport for someone else. Was 5 minutes to hotel and got checked in quickly. Wifi was fast, television had English channels, beds super comfy (had the family room) and ordered in some beer and got a little snack with it. Had gone for pizza at the Italian place down the road and was super. Loved the hotel and if ever in Charleroi again, will most definitely stay. Solid, safe and clean 3 star place with superb service.

Room Tip: Family room was great for short trips.

Let's nor exaggerate: it is certainly not a 4 star. The rooms are clean and functional, but double-bed is only 1.60 m. So better ask for twin-beds. Avoid ground-floor, especially room 3, next to the elevator. Not easy to find, but local people are helpful! We were guided by car(!) by some local worker. Great Belgian hospitality!
But it's biggest advantage is: near to the airport (about 8 minutes). The shuttle (Mercedes cab) drives you at EVERY HOUR during day time (ending in deed at 11 p.m.)to the airport and picks you up at the return(just give a phone call). Even if you're the only one to be picked up!!! Free of charge!!The staff(only one person, but excellent) takes care of your car(leave the key) and at the return, your car will stay near the entry! That's why I give mention "very good". By the way: if you want a good Belgian special beer to pass the night, they serve you (until 11 p.m.) We paid some 55 Euros by internet (official 75 announced in the hotel). Can you get more for this service? I guess no !

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the elevator

Near the airport, clean and newly decorated, this hotel is very nice indeed. Nothing was too much trouble - requested a ground floor room due to husband having an accident on hols in the Swiss Alps and they were fine. They asked if we wanted twin or double - we said double and they said fine but on first floor with very efficient lift - so no problem. Lovely people - nothing too much trouble. Delightful, reasonably priced Italian restaurant within walking distance recommended by the the hotel. All in all a good place to stay

Comfortable small hotel close to Charleroi airport, so ideal for an overnight stay before your flight. Free shuttle to/from the airport with parking facilities available during your holiday. No bar nor restaurant in the hotel, however one cannot complain when considering the room prices. A good Italian restaurant though just a couple of minutes'walk from the hotel. Room already booked for the next holiday in June!
