Best Western Plus Aero 44
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Charleroi
Reviewed March 15, 2014

I chose the Aero 44 due to it's proximity to Charleroi Airport. However, I was very disappointed as the room was small, poorly equipped and smelt of stale cigarette smoke. There was also a lot of noise from other guests, the front doors and also the window shutters rattling in the wind. The walls are almost paper thin, so I was kept awake by the guest next door snoring. His alarm subsequently woke me at 6am and then he must have left it on snooze whilst he got in the shower & went for breakfast, as it kept going off every 10 minutes afterwards!!! Only plus point was the breakfast selection and the friendly chef. Felt more like an ETAP/Ibis Budget type hotel and lacked the character I have come to expect from Best Western. Definitely would not stop here again unless there were no other options

The rooms felt well used and out dated. The bathroom was clean at least so overall it was probably average. The restaurant did have really good food. If you're just looking for an easy and inexpensive place to rest your head, this could be it. Don't expect very good customer service. When checking in the woman behind the desk acted like she was doing us a favor by being there.

Please be careful and request a room that is quiet. I was put into room 101.....the main automatic hotel doors are below the room (also room 115). The noise is relentless. I am amazed they allow people to stay in these rooms. I asked for a change and was put onto the 3rd floor. Oh dear me, a completely new type of noise, 2 different high frequency "squeals", then at 3am to 4.30am more different noises. No sleep for me.......
The rooms are very small, as are the shower/toilet. Sorry but the restaurant food was poor, I just couldn't eat the scampi pasta! too much like tinned food.....apologies but this was my real experience.

Well, well, this time i came back to belgium in the "Best western plus Aero 44" in Gosselie ,near the Charleroi airport. first for 1 nigth and a week after for 2 nigths, i just love it, ! kindness at reception, smile at you friendly to all, Speaking all languages (almost)- meaning i don't think they speak congolese..., but so pleasant. People reminding you when they say hello you realise it is a real sincere one just by looking at thair eyes.Place is very close to charleroi airport in 10 minuts time you come and get their. they do have a "shuttle" at disposal of their customers now, which is easy at the moment of getting back at airport. Now apart of the kidness of the staff, their littele bar is pleasant and permits you to have any kind of conversation without interfering or beeing interfer by other tables conversations. But for me the restaurant is my place - i love eating nicely having a nice wine by... service is descreet served by the guys of the same bar. But they do know their customers and habits. They remenber you well! Bad surprise for me , when i got there on the first evening, the restaurant was closed !!! what a disapointment -- it was a general holiday in belgium , so no restaurant... the 2 folowing nights i spended after ,YES , it was open , And i had that chance of eating deliciously their special dishes. Served with once a wine of Argentina , and second night a red Peruvian wine. Just divine. after the diner a nice with wine at the bar. and the next mornig up at 5h00 to catch shuttel of 7h00 reserved at the reception. Everything went on perfectly and in time!
OH! my next stay could be in august or september

I stayed in this Hotel as it was close to Charloi airport and I was arriving late and leaving on an early flight. The Hotel is convenient to the Airport but not within walking distance. There is no default shuttle bus so I ran the hotel and they sent a Taxi to collect me. They also arranged a 6am pickup for the next morning, however this is not a free transfer service and you have to pay for the transfer.
The Hotel was clean and functional and the Reception is available 24 hours which is practical for a Hotel in such proximity to an airport. Also has free wifi which is a bonus.
