“Not handy for the airport”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The courtesy bus from the airport to the hotel runs once an hour, at best. To get to the hotel from the airport, its a 10 minute bus ride, and then a 10 minute walk. How close is it to town? 20 minutes plus 15 minutes+ walk by tram (nearest tram stop 10 mins walk away), or 22 Euros by cab. So all in all, not in a convenient location. In the morning the courtesy bus didn't show - so the hotel arranged for a cab for me (at their expense)

Room Tip: Find another airport hotel if you have an early flight to catch.

If you are looking for a hotel just outside Brussels, then this hotel might be a choice. It is located at walking distance from NATO headquarters. It is easily accessible by car or public transport (tram 55 from Northern Railwaystation or Rogier, Bus 80 from Porte de Namur, Bus 65 from Central Railwaystation, the bus stop is "Da Vinci"). There is also a shuttle to and from the airport.
The restaurant is not open on Saturday evening! There are alternatives on the Chaussée d'Haacht (Greek, Italian restaurants).
Our room would need some refurbishment but general condition of the room is fair.
The room was equiped with a small flat TV screen.

Room Tip: There are two type of rooms: one with view on NATO headquarters and one with view on Evere.

It was a quick overnight stop, only about two-three hours to explore the area; I can tell you that there is not much around at all to see, the only convenient thing about staying in this hotel is the fact that you're close to the airport, nothing else.

The rooms themselves were clean, cozy and comfortable, although the Bathroom was only equipped with a shower, no bath. For those of you that like to press your uniforms or clothes before work or going into town, get your clothing dry cleaned, because there is no iron or ironing board in the room. I found the walls to the room to be thinner than most hotels; I could hear people moving about in their room and sometimes even heard the shower running.

The internet is free!

The Breakfast buffet in the Morning was good, but nothing "out of this world". A good assortment of your standard Breakfast food items.

For other meals, you can eat in the hotel, but there's also a few Italian restaurants about a ten minute walk away or so from the Hotel. You have to turn left upon exiting the front entrance of the Hotel.

Overall, I slept well and would only stay here again if it was a quick stop-over and required a guaranteed quick transit to the airport.

I stayed for two night on a business trip. The rooms are simple, clean and not very small. The food for breakfast was good enough and could be varied if staying a couple of days. Nice staff at the reception desk, free wi-fi in the room. The price was a little expensive though.

Room Tip: Rooms to the backside of the hotel al quiet.

Stayed a few nights for metings on outskirts of Brussels, also ventured into the city centre for meals, evening strolls, etc. Closely located to the airport, handy shuttle service, clean rooms, comfortable bed, good breakfast, affordable rates. I would definately return.

Friendly, helpful staff both at reception and breakfast. Lovely spacious room with everything you need, spotless and comfortable as was the bathroom, with bath and shower.
Breakfast was an excellent choice of cooked and continental with everything promptly replenished.
I was only there for one night on the way to Bavaria but would happily have stayed longer.

Stayed for 3 nights as part of a tour going to the F1 GP at Spa. Bit concerned when the tour guise said don't leave your handbags or wallets on the table when you go to breakfast as they may go missing. The twin room was fine and a good size. Breakfast was also good and plenty of it. As we were back late on 2 nights we ate in the hotel. Very limited food menu. A few salads, steak and chips and pizzas.Service was slow as not enough waiting staff. £5 for a large Stella Artois and £10 for a gin and tonic......wouldn't stay there by choice.
