I came to Genk in March 2013 on business. I have visited this hotel on four occasions. Great rooms, modern and clean. Breakfast A+ nice and good selection. Close to location of Winterslag where I was on business. Near by is train and bus station. Also fantastic restaurants in Genk. Hotel has WiFi and car parking.

Would recommend to anybody

This was an excellent hotel, complete with motivational quotes decorating the hallways in bold posters. The decor was sleek, soothing and modern, using browns, greys, and blues. Great, smiling and helpful Belgian staff gave very frank and helpful tips. The breakfast is a little expensive, but nice. Since everything is drivable in Belgium in one day, everywhere is a nice location outside of Brussels, where a small room is very expensive. This town is less than two hours away from Brussels, and it is quaint and sweet with some good, cozy international eateries and a big carrefor. Bathroom doors are see- through, but just be prepared. There are many amenities and cubbies for longer staying guests.

Room Tip: There is a little elevator, so any floor is good. There are no really great views, just of the stree...

Hotel Ecu is a good choice for short travel stay with standard options that hotels of this category suggest. Rooms are clean and tidy, but to my taste the room design and ergonomics lack cosyness and space. Quality of service and friendliness of the staff is really great and welcoming.

Hotel Ecu is a good budget choice for staying in Genk. Easy access by car (parking leftside of the hotel for 5 euro a day) or by train (station across the Europalaan). Rooms are refurbished, white and clean. Our deluxe room for 99 euro was spacious (and warm). The promised airco turned out to be a fan. You can open 2 windows. But rooms at the frontside of the hotel suffer pretty much trafficnoise of the busy Europalaan 24 hrs, The bed (no twin) too soft. Bathroom has a big bath.
Breakfast (self service) was not at all special for 15 euro pp. Supplementing food too slow. Breakfast should cost no more than 10 euro or included.
Staff is friendly. A more expensive option is the sisterhotel Carbon (also Europalaan 90 meters from Ecu). Carbon has an award winning design restaurant (Gusto). Not budget.

Room Tip: Rooms at the backside quieter.
