How to get there.

The only way to logically get there is to travel to Brussels Airport. Then find your way to the hotel shuttle parking in the ground floor. The hotel shares a shuttle with Etap Hotel, Ibis and Pullman. There is a shuttle every half an hour between 6 - 930 am and from 16.00hrs to 22.00. To reach there by public transport when the Airport shuttle is not available requires a lot of patience. The only bus that passes in front of the hotel is from Brussels- Nord Station- Bus 272 which is very infrequent. but is the only option if you want to avoid an expensive cab ride,

Good.

Well I cannot think of anything good except the price and the concept. The hotel is unmanned that means you check in at the adjoining ETAP Hotel and get a 6 digit code to enter the building and your room.

Also the hotel shuttle will save you money if you have a morning flight to catch.

Bad

1. The hotel carpets are filthy
2. There is no internet or any lift, So try and get a room in the ground floor if you have heavy luggage
3. No ensuite toilets

So try and get a room in the adjoining Etap which are available for 7 euros more and are a far better choice.

Unfortunately my "NO SMOKING" room absolutely stank of stale smoke, and the walls were a horrible nicotine yellow - charming.

location is good and the staff - in the Etap opposite were good. Breakfast was a bit on the basic side.

I have a healthy regard for Accor hotels, but this F1 was not good.

For very budget accomodation and in case fully booked Etap hotel in the close vicinity.
Staff still very helpful.

Good connection from/to airport (free shuttle service), for connection to the Brussels city look on http://www.stib.be/index.htm?l=en (journey planner, timetibles, network maps).

I've used a lot of Formule1 before and after and I've never had to pay for the parking (8 euros every night). If we take into account the price of the room and the price of the parking, it's much better another kind of hotel where you have the parking included and the private bathroom in your room
