“Too basic”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Poor located: not a single restaurant around. Breakfast not included (7.5€). Ibis restaurant too bad: you will pay 25€ for canned chicken and fries! The sheets had hairs from a previous guest! My pillow had a foot print on it. Internet is free but too slow for video-call. The rooms look like students quarters, but it's ok with the basics.

I think this hotel was perfect for an overnight near the airport. It was VERY modern (colored lights in the shower like in a jacuuzi). and very clean. There are two properties next to each other, I stayed in the "Ibis budget". Not sure what the other property was like but this was more than adequate for the price and location. I flew in late evening and had to fly our early the next am. Be advuised that this hotel is only a few km from the airport but the taxi was pricey, about 15 euro. I thought I was being ripped off but apparently that is the price according to the hotel and others. i think it is more expensive after a certain hour. needless to say i took the hotel shuttle (free) the next am. There is a 24 hour restaurant and bar on the property that was perfect for a bite (and way too much wine) with some other travelers. Good value for the price if you need a quick night of rest near the airport.

Ibis budget Brussels airport hotel certainly packs a punch for the price it charges. There could hardly be any better proposition for travelers looking to stay near Brussels airport. The design of the room instills a feeling of freshness and spaciousness. The amenities are basic but more than adequate for the intended guests.

To sum up, the hotel provides a compelling value for a traveler looking to stay near Brusssels airport

This hotel was perfect for my sister and I mainly because we were on a budget, and since we were visiting four countries in 3 weeks, we needed a place to store some of our luggage for a few days at a time. It's very clean, friendly, and they have a free shuttle to and from the Brussels Airport! It's not the closest from the Grand Place but you can take a bus and get there in a short amount of time. It was absolutely perfect for our needs without draining the wallet. Plus you're really going to want those extra euros to buy Belgian waffles, mussels, and beer mmmm...

Room Tip: If you need a larger room, they have a few handicap rooms available. The normal ones are on the smal...

Out of town and nowhere to go from the hotel except by taxi. Poor value and extremely expensive even for a near- airport hotel: 3Euros for a morning cup of coffee!!? 2.80 Euros for a small bottle of water! These are Euros, not dollars.
Meals also expensive. Room was about the size of a large closet.
Only good was clean and free shuttle to airport.

Room Tip: Try to find a hotel near one or 2 restaurants so as you're not held to the hotel fare. By the wa...

We stayed the night before we travelled. It is small but offers free wi-fi and has English television. There was a lack of pillows the staff unfortunately couldn't accommodate any extras but gave us blankets to roll up. Paying for parking was a hidden extra and found after if you go to some of the others it is free,makes it not so cheap. Would only stay as a stop over.

Room Tip: Take the shuttle bus

Booked this hotel for a couple of hours sleep before an early flight, but that was exactly what I didn't get. The general airco system (there seemed to be no option to turn this off individually) was generating a throbbing noise that kept me wide awake.

Combined with paying for the parking, this budget option proved to be not so very cheap and effective anymore.

On a positive note, the room was clean although very basic and the staff was friendly, but it won't convince me to use this hotel ever again.
