“Very Cheap, Very Basic, Very Clean, FREE INTERNET..Does the Job, Recommended”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

On a tight budget, with overnight wait for a flight ... I do not think you could beat the IBIS-ETAP at 62euro, which includes free internet, for value/price. Also whilst basic, rooms were upto date, comfy, clean, quiet ... no issues what soever with rooms.
5STAR on Price, Cleanliness etc, but 3* overall on Ambience. For 60euro's and only one night stay, really excellent hotel to use.

IBIS have two hotels a 15minute free shuttlebus ride from Brussels National, about 50metres apart, the ETAP Budget IBIS I stayed in, and the standard IBIS.

ETAP version of IBIS was only 59euro + 3euro tax a night was great value, as my normal Holiday inn was 160 and Crowne Plaza 279euro that night. IBIS Shuttle from airport every 40minutes morning and evening, but a gap in service 1055-1600

Room clean, comfy bed, good hot shower, small sink, separate toilet, small flatscreen TV with plenty of TV channels, i think included both BBC and ITV. Good plugs for room, good lighting, and controls at bed, so well thought out room.
++ FREE WIFI at both my ETAP and IBIS (bar/restaurant) and at an OK Speed,
(include wifi savings in calculations, eg at Crowne Plaza internet fee is 22euro/night ! !)

Vending machines in Lobby area, BUT walk across carpark, 30metres away you have the IBIS sister hotel with bar and restaurant.
Avoid the steak, was very very poor, but beer only 5euro for a 0,5l glass, and staff were very good.

Room Tip: All rooms the same.

Free internet is not really free of charge. Free is only first 512kb, which take one homepage. Also there are no double rooms in the hotel even it stayed in the booking reservation. It is two beds just next to each other and there is no possibility to move little apart. Good is that it is close to the airport and free shuttle.

Rooms booked almost six months ahead - one double and one twin. On arrival twin room was a double bed with small bed squeezed in, making room space very tight. Complained about this and got breakfast cost reimbursed. Slats on small bed broke in the night, so one person had to be moved to another room. Got parking costs reimbursed on reminding them just how far ahead we had booked.

Make no mistake, this is not a five star hotel, but then again it doesn't pretend to be. We visited there on a cheap weekend deal with Newmarket Holidays from the UK. In terms of value for money it couldn't be beaten. Here are my pluses and minuses for this hotel:

Pluses

THE most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept on, even in some quite swanky hotels. The sleep quality was excellent.
Good, comprehensive breakfast fare. Plenty there to start the day by continental standards.
Friendly staff, even when faced with the most moronic of questions from guests. (Can I use English money here???)
Very clean

Minuses

Quite thin walls, so plenty of noise leakage from next door.
Heating was a bit temperamental. Took a lot of playing around with a difficult to access knob before the temperature could be stabilised.
Breakfast was hectic at peak times. Long lines. A top tip would be to get up half an hour earlier to avoid the rush.


All in all, a good place to rest your head but not much else.

This is a typical Ibis hotel, no frills, clean and functional. Staff were very pleasant, in particular the young lady at reception. The rooms are spotlessly clean, nice comfy bed, basic shower , but again, clean and functional. Excellent location to get to either the airport or the City. Good carpark space, shuttle bus to the airport every 30 minutes. Good breakfast with a reasonable choice, what more do you need ?

How to spend money for nothing. Unprofessional restaurant with waiters joking with cook and high priced poor menu. The only positive thing is the position in an important business area, but with aboslutely no life in the evening.

Room Tip: To be avoided

Horrific hotel design from outside, but suitable within. Small but fine rooms. Also a plus: no noise from Airplanes. THE airporthotel does its job: stay overnight before departure.
Nb. Wifi is free and the beers are great
