“Decent basic hotel but smelly lobby is a turn off”
Reviewed April 9, 2011

I had a decent, although quite basic room. It was comfortable but I did hear quite a bit of road noise despite being on the top floor. The staff are friendly and helpful too.

However, I was really put off by the smell of cigarettes that hits you in the face as soon as you walk in. I stayed for 3 nights and on my way in and out, I frequently noticed a smouldering, unattended cigarette in an ashtray behind the reception counter. Frankly, I just don't think this is acceptable in a hotel. On the ground floor and outside the hotel in The evenings there is also a very strong, almost nauseating, smell of cooking fat coming from the kitchen which is also not very pleasant - maybe they need to change their extraction system.

This is just a great hotel for someone who wants to combine the rush of the city and the peace of a small town.Perfect located,near the market of Lier,near the shops and attractions as the"begijnhof"and the astronomic clock both worthwhile to visit.

The rooms are huge!!and they give you a loungy feeling,modern.The breakfast buffet has a good choice of different bread ,ham,cheese,eggs,....

On the groundfloor there is a tavern in the same style of the hotel,modern but still cosy.
