“New business hotel - standard, and nothing more”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

The Valk is a trendy new business hotel. Everything you would expect from a business hotel. Rooms new and clean. No complaint - except its location and its price.
It is close to the airport, but not really close. It is just next to a busy highway (and although noise reduced windows, it is not the location you dream of...). Besides, the breakfast was extra and I paid on a company rate 150 Euro which I regard not as a bargain. This is expensive Brussels, but I would recommend other hotels, closer to downtown. The hotel is clean and did not create any worries, but also no pleasures. And the location is a big negative (airport takes about 10-15 minutes by taxi).

I recently stayed here while on a business trip. Since driving to Brussels in the morning (from pretty much every location in Belgium) is a nightmare, I decided to stay near the airport (BRU) the evening before. Good hotel with pretty much everything you need. Staff is very friendly. Roomy interior with modern bathrooms. Would recommend this place even though it is on the pricier side.

We slept in this hotel the evening before leaving to USA in april this year. I emailed a few times with hotel to reserve the rooms we needed for so many people. The communication with the reception lady was fast and efficient. It is ideal: you park your car in the undergound garage (you can even have it cleaned while you're away), you take their shuttle and fly! Hope that an increaing amount of hotels will introduce this kind of service. Had dinner together with my family (we were with 6 adults and four grown up chlidren)in the hotel restaurant. I was much more expensive than I'm used to pay in Van der Valk restaurants. We payed almost 450 euros (!) with moderate consumption of beverages. But, rooms are spacious, reception staff friendly. We are satisfied and will return a next time.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a 'tomorrowland' festival package!
We was supposed to collect our festival tickets at the hotel (although staff didn't really have a clue what was going on.....possibly a fault of the tour company not the hotel)

The rooms were very nice and breakfast was good.
Shower was very weak, took me a while to wash my hair!!
Also the Tv didn't work, but reception come and fixed it for us with no problems.
The hotel internet connection worked on my laptop, but not on my blackberry. (only available in lobby/breakfast area)

We decided to jump in a taxi from the airport (thinking it surely can't be that expensive its only a few minutes away)
DON'T do this, it cost us 15euros! The hotel will pick you up for free.....just call them!!! Nobody told us this.

The hotel itself is in the middle of no where....only near the airport which its name does suggest!
The public transport system is like something stepping back in time!! Was an experience thats for sure!
Stay here if you are on a stopover at Brussels airport or hire a car or doing the festival packages (which come with coach transfers!)

Although a bit expensive, much included: free soda's, free wifi and free parking in front of hotel. Close to Diegem business. In the morning many personnel from airliners, Indian food next to breakfast (spicy - for those who like it).
Nice restaurant but expensive and no simple meals.

I chose this hotel because it is close to the airport, and they have an arrangement called Park, Sleep and Fly. So you can park your car there in a secured parking, spend a night in the hotel (complimentary mini-bar with soda and a beer), get your car washed, and get transferred from and to the airport. I payed 79 euro for a single room, including the parking. The price of the parking goes up after 2 weeks. So this is a really good deal!

The hotel itself was very nice, modern, clean, great staff and I asked for a room with a view on the runway, and they upgraded me without any hesitation. Nice bed, big comfy bathroom with shower, modern, clean, .... A very good choice!

The only little negative point is that the restaurant is very expensive. It's only after having a 25 euro burger that I saw there is a bar with more reasonably priced pub food... I'll try that next time.

So if you need to travel from Brussels Airport and want to leave your car there, this is thé right choice.
