Price (through Booking.com got EUR 80 for double and was upgraded to triple breakfast incl. for the same money), breakfast was great, location was convenient when with a car. Hotel is aging, rooms/halls definitely need some refurbishing (especially bathrooms)...
We stayed at this hotel on the way to BRU airport. This is a business hotel with large and confortable rooms. Breakfast buffet is good. hairs on the bad sheet and pillow. Old carpets at the corridors
The comfort and atmosphere of the hotel is good During breakfast he supply of bread/bacon/salmon was absent or slowly.
The hotel and restaurant have a beautiful design. The room was big and still cosy. The food in the restaurant was delicious !
The restaurant was outstanding - excellent food, imaginative menu and (for the standard) not too expensive It would be nice to be able to get Internet access from the room rather than having to go back down to Reception to get the log in details
Good location, very close to Waterloo office park. Comport beds and good breakfast. Hotel staff is not too helpful. During booking i have mentioned that i prefer room NOT on the ground floor (i have book a room in one month in advance), but receive room on ground floor. Answer was: we have't spare room on the first floor. Aircondition is on the room but too noisy. During checkout hotel try to charge me for more high rate. If you are required to stay in Waterloo area and you have car, then better to stay in Château Du Lac hotel in Genval. Same hotel chain but better value for money.
very good breakfast and excellent service and a very pleasant location. the reception had an inforamtion I will stay 2 nights but in the reality I have booked only for 1 night. After a short explication, the check-in has been adjusted accordingly.
Large, quiet room with good facilities. Close to ring road with good access to motorways south of Brussels. Difficult to find hotel - in former sugar factory! Evening meal was not good value, with 20-30 min waits between courses and small portions. Breakfast - hot food was cold, but there was a good range of foods.
Perfect location if you have a meeting in one of the offices next door. Very high prices for a normal/regular hotel.
40 steps to Brussels international airport
Convenient location to airport and excellent facilities for the price.
Extremely very well situated across from Brussels airport entrance. It's the prime dpot to spend the last night before you leave. The good is good. Good breakfast. It's on the more expensive side but the location is what makes this property so convenient. There is a good train connection at the airport to get to the center of Brussels Antwerp Gent of Oostende. Its of course well understandable to the expensive side. Breakfast $25. But it's location makes you accept.
Perfect. Just in front of the departure hall. The best place where to stay if you depart early in the morning.
Convenient to airport - just walk across the street.
Can walk across street to airport. Bar area was short staffed so see I e was dry slow, but to their credit, the bar manage really was concerned. Plus their computer system was down
Very convenient for catching early morning flight The hotel was under renovation - the only restaurant operating was very crowded and busy
It was conviently located for our needs. My wife and I needed to take a flight early the next morning and, while we aren't rich, we enjoyed our stay for the night. We were ready to take the flight. Leaving. It was sooooo good. It is unfortunate in this survey that there wasn't a choice "very good" because the item that we checked as good was very good, yet not excellent.
Location is perfect. Walk to check in at airport. Restaurant costly and service in restaurant slow.
Position of electric outlets in rooms too far from bed
Excellent location I had a very badly soundproofed room (next to the lift). Outrageous for a room of that price.
Can't beat the location if you need an early flight the next day.... This is ripoff pricing. First of all, the website says rooms from E139. But don't try to find a room at that price, E209 is what you pay. Without internet. Without Parking. Without breakfast. Even Tokyo and Paris are cheaper.
Comfy.Gent on reception on returning my passport noticed it was my birthday and wihed me a happy one.Unfortunately no champagne !!!!! Impersonal, very expensive if not booked on net. Glad only stayed 2 nights before moving onto my regular and cheaper and nicer hotel nearby!!!!
The service the people
Enjoyed the spacious club room and nicely remodeled bathroom. Very convenient to tourist sights. The mattresses are too firm.
Room was nice; staff was super helpful & polite
I felt well, being alone in my room did not make me feel alone in the huge world like in some hotels.
The rooms are of a good size The reception area need sot be manned by more than 1 person at busy times. This was very poor and checking out took over 30mins.
double room in the hotel was very small, with extra bed for our son it was not possible to move i nthe room. The rooms and the furniture i nthe hotel are very old, worn out. It is not 4* hotel which you expect when paying 175 Euro per night. I will never stay in this hotel again. Major renovation is required, prices are too high, should be below 100 Euro even after renovation.
rooms need renovation, air condition is too noisy, breakfast is good,
Free WiFi It is rather dated and in need of a re-fit
The quiet atmosphere and friendly desk clerk. They were not prepared to have guests over the Easter Weekend. The breakfast was not very good, the room lacked a fan and the hot pot was in need of cleaning. The hotel needs to consider putting something in the tub to prevent slipping when showering.
The room provided all that was necessary to make our stay comfortable. ( Tissues + a magnifying mirror in the bathroom would make it even better) Breakfast was excellent. The location was quiet and restful.
Modern facilities and value for money No
First of all the hotel is lovely with the old style red brick walls from the old factory, the staff is very friendly and we go a great deal for a superior room. I have nothing bad to say about the hotel but we asked at the front desk to order a taxi to bring us to "Le Bivouc de l'Empereur" the taxi company charged us €20 and on the way back we asked the restaurant to order a taxi and the charge was €12 only (choice of partner).
Great room, good breakfast, good staff, free parking.
I would love tea making facilities in the room
Very clean and modern rooms, great breakfast and friendly staff.
good variety at breakfast, very comfortable beds and a clean room. expensive for the film selection
The hotel and staff were excellent Cooked breakfast was not quite hot enough most times
excellent value for money, great breakfast
Very pleasent hotel.
Beautiful quiet location overlooking the lake; only 30 mins from the centre of Brussels; competent and charming staff; good restaurant.
fantastic place, beautifully located and very well run. I'll be back. And this is from a hotel owner.
Very nice hotel. Great location; spacious and clean rooms. Friendly atmosphere. We had an extra bed for our son without additional charge. Very good value for money. Very good breakfast if you go early; view on the lake. Free parking. We want to visit this hotel again in the future. Some policies of the last decade: very high charge for internet, pay tv and cd listening!!...simply not worhty to use them.
very friendly staff, surroundings are beautiful no information during check in, example what time breakfast is served and where. We had dinner reservations for the first night (part of the package) but she forgot to tell us etc.
comfort in room and bathroom was great being in wheelchair the elevator solutions were not ideal
location near to the lake restaurant with lakeview but they put us in dark room on back side with no view , welness with 3x 5 m pool , small sauna and hammam, not worth a 5 star hotel , people should know
Location On the first day the room service left the door of our room open all day after cleaning the room!!! Luckily nothing was taken. On the second day there was very loud music outside on our second night until 3am and then again in the morning from 9am. The hotel compensated by not charging us for the minibar. Also the lift is scary, old and slow, and only one for the whole hotel!!
Quality and tranquillity of surroundings (a) The bar was unmanned for much of the time when it was supposed to be open. (b) Concerned that a room service meal for 4 people was delivered by a young man who had had to carry a large tray - very heavy and dangerously laden - up two floors and through long corridors to our rooms: impractical and risky. He should have had a trolley.
Very good place on coutry side. Quite good breakfast. Hotel staff is friendly and helpfull.
The price was fair fair.
nothing too expensive for what you get. uncomfortable rooms.
easy to reach Bruxelles they don't accept the 500 euros banknotes the so called "bar" was poor
Hotel was clean, modern and easy to find. Staff helpful. Breakfast could have been better, car park smelt of sewage
easy access to the places and sites we wanted to visit
Walking distance to RER, easy way to get into Paris to see the sights. Secure parking for hotel guests only at reasonable daily rate. Staff was very nice. Hotel is very basic. Used flip flops for walking around - not the cleanest place we stayed during our trip.
This hotel was adjacent to both the battlefiled...15 minute drive away and the railway station (5 mins by car) with a direct train to Brussels every hour..last one back well after midnight...saved having to drive/stay in the middle of Brussels. Excellent staff and typical Ibis accomodation...never bad, never excellent...always good...staff very knowledgable and helpful. Nothing
clean rooms, convinient location.. room was a little small,(triple room we got was nice, but we didn't get it for the second stay.) not all the stuff was friendly.
after we complained about our room we got a much better room Room: sink was blocked of shower and washbasin. The floor was dirty and it was extremely warm. But worst there was a light outside fixed just above our window. It switched on everytime somebody or something passed the parking. So the whole night the room was in bright light on and of. There were no proper curtains.
Friendy reception staff made you feel very welcome The staff in the attached restaurant changed from being helpful and friendly to rude and unwelcoming when they found out we had booked our evening meal as a package.
Right next to Napoleon's piramid and the Waterloo battle fields. The floor in the room was pretty much stained and so was the head board of the bed. All in all it did not make me feel the room was that clean.
nice room noisy, next to road
Friendly staff Restaulant was under constraction. Brakfast was little bit poor.
good breakfast, pleasant staff, very clean rooms, wifi in rooms now. non come to mind
Wonderful location, quiet atmosphere, great rooms, great commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo I will return soon.
Good breakfast, nice bathroom, comfortable mattress awful noice from a street, too dark room, no price list for mini bar and some drinks are out of expiry dates
Easy to find! Lack of plugs (for my laptop) in the room. Had to use the TV socket and therefore couldn't watch TV as I worked - which was probably better for my concentration anyway.
No warm water. Room interior full of stains, was warm (in February). Slept on top of the sheets.
Well located close to the motorway. Room not that well-isolated. Lack of choice during breakfast.
Nice breakfast, I loved the bread! I did not like the noise of the road and the lights outside as there were paintingworks ongoing
Everything was perfect.
comfort and proximity to airport
Close to the ariport Room not clean (especially toilets and floor) - Very noisy : I could hear the other client calling his wife thru the wall, and all the noise coming from the corridor
Efficient transfer to the airport Cleanliness, in particular the carpets in the rooms. In urgent need of change.
The ease of transportation to and from the airport and the location.
The roomservice menu is very poor, food in general is not of high quality. I had to drink my wine from a plastic glass!
The location to Budget car rental and the airport. The internet charge was ridiculous, and the internet service unacceptable, possibly due to spyware used by the service. When you charge for internet access, it should not include breaches in privacy. This alone will cause me to never stay at this hotel or any other hotel in the chain again.
The hotel is close to the airport & the shuttle service was good. The room was good. Arrangement with credit card was confusing - as I had pre-paid I had to come back to reception to register my CC to pay for restaurant. The service in the restaurant was very slow.
Close to airport
cleanness and hotels facilities (hotel shuttle on call during the night was very useful)
Very comfortable hotel, fantastic room! Clean, quiet, romantic, ... just what we needed to get away from the weekly rat race!
The Gym equipment needs some maintenance...
Very nice hotel, but pricy. asking 21 euros for a breakfast is exaggerating
Beautfull escpae in the middle of the forest, but only 20 minutes from Bruxelles centre. The Spa was amazing!! Need to ask paper toilett, as this was not checked when daily cleaning was made. Paper toilett was well received but not put directly in the toilette but on the bed... not really romantic!
Very pleasant hotel with warmful staff. Located in the woods the hotel is very quite with very comfortable rooms, free large parking lot (external) and free internet access everywhere in the hotel. Sauna is nice, clean and has late opening. Restaurant is vast and food is good quality. To recommend.
Far from town. transport expensive.
Very large room, clean modern They are really a conference center and not quite ready for prime-time as a hotel. Not enough staff.
the room was of beautiful design and had everything. Not sure about the glass doors on toilet and bathroom...not suitable for some couples. also very far away from city and no good for business trips to city
Very comfortable, stylish, clean and modern rooms This is the third time I have stayed there and every time I find it is impossible to get the room sufficiently warm
location cleaning of rooms terrible slow (only at 17.00hours!)
Room are good and spacious and hotel provided all necessary facilities. €99.00 per night is an over valued cost, but so are all midweek hotels in Belgium.
clean, quiet, nice food, nice people a little far away from the city
It was convenient to my daughters house for her 40th birthday party
Easy access to rooms quiet area lovely breakfast kind staff thought it a bit expensive, and a bit far from centre of Waterloo town
A peaceful place, homeliness, nice personal
The windows can't be closed properly. Neither the door of the room. It's too noisy because of the very close motorway.
lovely surroundings, quite and comfortable
Convenient location south of Brussels.Ideally located for rush hour outbound trips south of brussels, at attractive price/quality. Limited nr of rooms, cozy atmosphere 1. Although the booking.com reservation mentioned it, the owner was extremely cross about the late arrival. Not the textbook example of customer friendliness. Morning staff was extremely nice and embarassed by the incident though. 2. Bedroom window somewhat difficult to handle (open).
A beautiful, comfortable, well staffed hotel. It was perfect for my 13 hour layover at Brussels Airport. Twenty One Euro for breakfast is outrageous. I ate about two eggs, two slices of bacon, a slice of toast and coffee. I can not eat Twenty One Euro of breakfast. It would have been nice if the restaurant was open for breakfast.
The free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel and back.
The proximity to Brussel National Airport and teh free Airport Drop and Pick ups are the most salient points of thsi Hotel. No
The room was very nice and roomy, the bathroom was modern, large and well equipped The wake up call system did not work and we nearly missed our flight
Food was excellent; staff was efficient and courteous One complaint: I extended my stay by a day and a half while waiting on a flight. When I called to extend the stay, the reception did not tell me the rate would be changing from 99e to 150e. This is a big difference and took me by surprise when I checked out. Not sure why the rate increased during a weekday but nevertheless I was not informed. I did not like this.
Location and value Airport shuttle not 7/24
Very close to the airport, free shuttle, clean, modern, nice restaurant and bar. Train station is near by . Hotel is located in the middle of business park.
Great hotel close to the airport. 30-40 Euro taxi ride to town. Staff is great in the bar area. Nice service and food is well done. Carpets not the best of shape. Could be cleaned. Taxi service is a bit slow. If you need to be somewhere at a certain time, I would book the taxi the night before.
I called reception and waited for an unnecessarily long time before an irritated and unfriendly employee answered me. I asked for some utensils and he said "didn't room service give you this?" And I responded "This is not room service related", as I wanted utensils to eat with take away food. His irritation came through his voice while he said "fine." He hung up on me before I could say thank you. After this short but unfriendly exchange with reception, I never got my utensils! I never called back to followup . It wasn't worth the hassle and especially the rudeness. I improvised by using their wooden coffee stick as utensils instead. It wasn't easy to use but did the job with the scooping motion. I've never experienced such distasteful rudeness from hotel staff before until now. It really put a sour ending to my visit to Brussels. It only takes one uncalled for encounter to leave a bad immpression. Needless to say I will not be coming back to this hotel. And forewarning for anyone asking for utensils; good luck with that!
Close to airport especially if you have an early flight out of Brussels. Close to city centre too - station 5 minutes walk away. Time to city centre about 15 minutes. Taxi provided at hotel expense from airport to hotel during the day. Very efficient service. We left hotel at 5am. We had to take a taxi. Hotel pays for taxi after 6am.
Facilities, staff, restaurant and overall upkeep all excellent and consistent with 4-star designation. Airport shuttle was active/available (contrary to older reviews). Good location for airport access. Gated parking was 15 E on-site and was very convenient. Air conditioning was poor and room remained rather warm (sign on thermostat noted that it was an eco-friendly system so this may not be considered a major issue by some), only 1 full size towel for double room posed an inconvenience. Location very good for airport access but otherwise nondescript.
Access from motorway - very easy to find. Comfortable beds. Good value for money. Secure parking. Good breakfast. Minor point but would have liked extra pillows. If I had asked I am sure they would have provided these.
The room was extremely clean and comfortable.
clean well equipped room.
location, big room, nice design
the food (breakfast and lunch) is very poor but very expensive. breakfast
Very nice and helpful staff in reception, good location for those who are travelling around the country, just off the motorway The double bed was too small for two persons
the room service was fabulous
The desk clerks were very helpful. The rooms were great, and the layout of the hotel was great. No
perfect room and bad jaquzzi,outdoor swimming pool are broken ,no breakfast .No free wi-fi in a room
Free airport shuttle service, proximity to airport was good but not so close that plane noise is a problem. Staff helpful and room a good size and nicely set up.
nice hotel, good facilities, near the airport, staff is very nice and helping
Aesthetically, the common spaces were lovely. The food and beer were reasonably priced at the restaurant, and the minibar prices were fair. The staff was very unfriendly and unhelpful. To use the spa you have to pay an additional 13 Euro per person.
The building its self was neat. Everything else to horrible! Yes, hidden fee's lack of communication from staff.
