Due to the fact this hotel is located close to the seaport of Ghent many east European workers stay here for longer time.
The rooms got cleaned every day and with knowing Formule 1 concept we were not disappointed and we got what we expected. Only issue is there is no AC, but luckily we were prepared and got fans with us.

The Budget Ibis hotel was extremely disappointing. Signage to the hotel is non-existant and it is hidden behind the Ibis Hotel. The charge for parking is 17 euros per night but you can side-step this by parking at the nearby McDonalds which is free. The breakfast costs 7 euros and is very scant. The rooms are basic and the wifi connection is very poor. It is not a hotel that I will ever stay at again. There are much better places in this area.

Really grimy, toilets filthy, old decor really tricky location far from town centre. Everything you touched in room felt greasy. Would not use this hotel again - was surprised as other Formula Ones's have been very nicely presented.

Firstly, for value for money, it is good. The room is a little small for three people but for the money, what more do you want! The problem was the people. I stayed in my room with two friends and frankly, really didn't want to venture outside it and into the hotel. The corridor smelt of marijuana smoke all the time and the bedding stank of cigarette smoke. The window frame in our room was broken so there was a constant draft. The shared toilet and shower facilities were ok but not cleaned enough. There was a sign stating that they had a "self cleaning" system but this was clearly not enough in the case of the toilets. Enough said about that area! There were also prostitutes living at the hotel who would often hang around in the communal/reception area and the corridors. This was quite intimidating and unpleasant for us as guests. The location is quite a distance from the city centre, not walking distance so driving everywhere was a necessity and the wifi is only available in the reception area and even then it is not reliable. The breakfast at 5euros each is not worth it. Mainly pastries and bread, no hot food available. Decided not to go with this and get something much cheaper in town, even if I did have to drive to get to it!

50€ a night for 3 or 48€ a night for 1 or 2.
My experience in two F1 hotels in France was 33€ a night and they were better than this one.

- Noisy guests + noisy cleaning lady.
- Room was clean, bed comfortable.
- Poor location, if you don't have a car I wouldn't recommend it.
- WiFi >only< at reception, and didn't work the night we arrived.
- Receptionist was friendly: gave us a map and indications where to park.
