Hotel Ter Elst
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Edegem
Reviewed November 2, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Ter Elst October 2011 and it was pretty ropey. Poor, out-dated and grubby. We had to visit the area again in October and reluctantly chose to stay at the hotel again as it was so conveniently close to where we needed to be.
What a difference! A newly appointed room with great bed, lots of space, a modern look, and clean. Friendly staff too. WiFi free and there's a gym across from the car park ( can't comment on gym as I didn't use it)
Well done Ter Elst, we certainly recommend a stay here. Let us hope that the standards are kept up........ and perhaps the pillows be upgraded, they didn't offer much support. But hey... a huge improvement from last year .

Contrary to a recent review Wifi is free throughout the hotel. Parking is free and in front of the hotel. The hotel has large rooms and bathrooms. Rooms are clean. Staff is friendly and efficient.
The restaurant is opposite the hotel and also has a bistro where you can eat after 10 when the restaurant closes.
I found nothing wrong with the breakfast, just the usual,
No bar in the hotel, this is opposite, but you can put your drinks on your room. There is also no minibar.
There is fitness also opposite the hotel, the use is free.

This hotel is absolutely not worth its 4 stars! Rooms are spacious but completely outdated. Carpets are worn out, have dirty spots. The buffet breakfast was poor and the quality of the food wasn't good at all. On Monday you could find the leftovers from Sunday. For wifi acces you have to pay extra (in 2011 in a 4-star hotel???).
I wouldn't reccommend this hotel to anyone. You can find far better hotels even in the 3-star category.

The hotel is near antwerp, 20 min to antwerp (car). Public transport bus 32(20 min).
The rooms are very big, the bathroom had a heated floor, push a button under the sink.
The breakfast was tasty and a lot. The staff was very friendly. The fitness is a cross the street. There is no bar in the hotel, and no minibar.

Room Tip: ask for a ground floor 10, non smoking

This hotel is rated as 4 star, but seems more like a 3 star. Rooms are quite big in Europe standards and have basic functionalities; nothing luxury. Yet, it is quiet a recommendable hotel if you are travelling with your car as it is a bit far away from Antwerpen and has a good price-quailty ratio (i.e it's cheap). Hotel has free parking and there is more than enough parking space. The only negative comment I can make is that you will not have a great breakfast there. The choices are limited. If I should give a score; 7/10.

Accustomed to Best Western hotels in America, Ter Elst was found lacking in several respects. The room and bathroom were recently remodeled and spacious but sorely lacking in basic furniture -- no drawers, dressers or shelves for clothing -- only a single closet with hangers. This lack is probably okay for what appears to be the typical business client staying one night to attend the many conferences hosted by the hotel but totally Spartan for a leisure stay of several days -- living out of suitcases on the floor. Although the lobby and complimentary breakfast facilities were nicely appointed, the lobby bar never opened nor was it possible to obtain ice (perhaps only Americans want ice and minibars). Not much to see/do in easy walking distance during the winter months but off a main road about 100 yards and quiet. Nearest public bus about 500 yds away. Many other Best Western hotels have guest laundry facilities available, not Ter Elst.

We had booked a double room online with a request for an additional bed for a child. When we arrived in the evening at the hotel, they had not set up an extra bed but they speedily found an extra bed. There was an awful smell of open drains in the car park so you could not open your bedroom window. We were put into a twin room even though we booked a double room. The Hotel Manager said they do not do double beds and the double rooms are just single beds pushed together. We also had a smoking room that smelt of stale smoke and so did the corridor. We had not requested a smoking room as we assumed all hotels were non smoking now. The hotel room is very sparsly furnished but large. I would rate this as a budget hotel not 4 star as I have stayed in better Premier Inn Hotels(Budget) in the UK. Expensive for what you get.
