“Choose Hotel Melba”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

First impressions (very pleased); easy to find, a plus when traveling to new locations; friendly reception at check-in (quick/efficient); the hotel lobby had information/brochures to area sites and attractions; there is also a restaurant (didn’t utilize); quiet location; the room was clean and spacious, ensuite, well furnished, free WiFi and a PC (connected instantly), cable tv and free onsite parking; the bed was comfortable (after a long day)
Short walk to the 101st Airborne museum and the Main Square (McAuliffe Square-named after WWII); on the corner is Monument McAuliffe, an American Sherman Tank and a Liberty Way stone; as well the Tourist Office/information center, surrounded by many choices for restaurants and the main thoroughfare for shopping
The European/continental breakfast was plentiful; fresh fruits, an assortment of breads and croissants, yogurts, cheeses, cold meats, fruit juices; boiled eggs and coffee to order (American, latte, espresso); definitely will hold you over to lunch
At checkout the receptionist said the online reservation had the wrong rate for the room and she adjusted the bill (I hadn’t know the difference-a small saving but nevertheless a savings); enjoyed my stay in this solid family-run hotel; I will use this hotel again without hesitation and recommend it to family and friends.

Stayed one night in December 2012. Good hotel, nice staff, breakfast ok. Nice place to stay in the Bastogne area (the people considered this hotel as the best place in the area of Bastogne).
This is a really nice 3 star hotel and a good value for money. Nice staff (I think the restaurant was closed, however).

Good location, clean and well run hotel. If you can't figure out the European shower system they will come up to show you. The restaurant is very good for dinner. Buffet breakfast is good also.
Hotel is an easy walk to the town square and many people coming for tours of the battlefields stay here.

My husband and I were traveling with a group touring American WWII memorials and battlefields in France, Belgium, and Luxembourg. The Hotel Melba was the best place we stayed, hands down. The fact that it is family-run is evidenced by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Our room was clean and brightly lit, and the bed was very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was a nice beginning to the day, and the delicious dinners they prepared for us in the evenings were a welcome respite from the buffet dinners we had in other hotels. Our days were spent riding in our tour bus and stopping at numerous memorials, and sometimes hiking into the woods to view battle sites. At the end of the day it was so nice to come back to a nice dinner and a comfortable, cozy room. I highly recommend the Hotel Melba if you visit Bastogne.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Best Western Hotel Melba and were very satisfied with our room accommodations, the pleasantness of the staff, and its excellent location to all that Bastonge has to offer. Their complimentary breakfast gave us something extra to look forward to each day. I am so happy this hotel was recommended to us....and now, I can recommend it to others!

What a lovely place - from the friendly welcome on arrival, to the cheery check-out. This place seems to be run and staffed in the main by one family: they were in reception, served drinks at the bar until late in the evening, and then looked after breakfast the next day.

We loved it - the room was basic but very clean and everything worked as it should, although the shower wasn't very powerful.

The public areas are great with clear signs of attention to detail such as freshly cut and arranged flowers in reception and a display of all fifteen beers available from the bar on the counter.

This hotel is just two minutes' walk from the town square with a good choice of places to eat (Cafe Le Nuts is better than its name might suggest). We stayed for three nights as a base for Spa F1 and it's a bit far (about an hour's drive) for that but well worth considering if only for the superb friendly service and great facilities.

Hope to return some other time.

We stayed in this hotel for one night while visiting the region. The family room with two bedrooms was excellent and not expensive. Breakfast was very nice. Service was good. The hotel has a private parking free of charge. The main square of Bastogne is at a 2 min walk from the hotel.
We recommend this hotel if you are traveling around the area. We also recommend to visit the War Memorial and the Farm of Bisons!
