The Hotel is what you expect from Ibis. Room interior is known design. Groundfloor is modern with a nice bar/seating area, better than expected. The breakfast area is also nice in comparison to other Ibis's Hotels. A bummer is the parking Garage. The parking spaces are narrow for modern cars. Most guests take two spaces. Leaving you behind trying to... More

It is an IBIS so expect a standard formula. The rooms are very small...the only thing two people can safely do at the same time is sleep! Best not to bring a large suitcase. It was spotlesly clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was a good selection, although they seemed to have trouble keeping things topped up when it... More

Really close to the centre, everything walkable. Staff friendly, hotel clean and food was above what I expected. The room was small but covered the basics. If you don't plan on staying in the room unless sleeping then it's fine. Bathroom was tiny....

We were satisfied by our hotel choice. It's fair Ibis standard hotel, with (as usual) an excellent bed, well spacious, though a bit basic, room. We enjoyed our stay. Some cons: breakfast cost is a bit expensive, the hotel located in a middle between city center and train station, so you have to walk or take the tram to reach... More

I only use Ibis if anything else is unaffordable, I was rather pleasantly surprised to find this hotel to be quite pleasant. It was the standard Ibis room but very fresh looking, with a nice helpful staff. It was still outrageously overpriced (like any hotel in Belgium), but with every alternative way over the pain threshold, overall I cannot complain,... More
