    « Poor hotel, would not stay here again! »

    Me and my boyfriend are not the ones to complain however this is the worst hotel we've stayed in by far. We was travelling home early hours so thought it was a good idea to stay here. Downstairs lobby area where the restaurant was, was lovely which I wouldn't fault at all so you're expecting your room to be the same. The room was so small you could barely move in it, there was dead flies on the walls, there was not one English channel on the television, the wifi was very poor and considering you're in the middle of no where you're stuck in the room for the night with nothing. The restaurant food is really expensive so we only got fries cause there wasn't much choice, there's no nearby shops or anything and there was a vending machine with only a bottle of coke in and some m&ms so before you go this hotel make sure you come prepared with snacks and drinks because there is nothing. The weather was extremely hot with no air conditioning in the rooms, we was sweating from the heat and had to get a cold shower because the window had no latch on it so we felt like we had no air in the room, we had to get the chair and push it in between the window to keep it open, the next morning me and my boyfriend woke up with so many bites off flies because its located near trees, so be careful. Would not stay here again as the facilities are poor. It offers a shuttle bus to the airport but you have to pay anyway so best just getting a taxi.

    « Typical hotel at the airport »

    Typical hotel at the airport. Especially suitable for people who require a stay overnight before or after a flight. The hotel is within driving distance of 10-15 minutes from the airport. Likely a relatively small room with a mini fridge. Breakfast is relatively expensive. Free parking is available.

    « Good place to crash for a night or two »

    Good size room and bathroom,clean with a nice restaurant.Wheelchair friendly,convenient parking.Disappointing breakfast with cold food served at the back instead of the restaurant,making us feel that hotel guests are not worthy.Very complicated itinerary to get to the airport.The hotel offers a shuttle with very strange and useless schedule

    « Oasis of peace and comfort if you have to use Charleroi Airport »

    Charleroi airport would have to be one of the more unpleasant ones in Europe - cheap and nasty (which is no doubt why airlines like Ryanair use it - and I got there at 10.30 p.m. on a hot night when there were huge crowds, no phone available anywhere in the airport, and the taxi drivers having organised a cartel to charge 4-5 times the regular price. But once I got inside the hotel, all was calm: clean, comfortable rooms, well-equipped bathrooms, free wi-fi, and a shuttle to the airport in the morning. I have had some bad experiences at Charleroi in the past and only wish that I had known about this option then. It will be on my favourites list from now on.

    « Smoke free room smelt of really strong cigarettes »

    Our room was large & modern but the bed for rock hard, so uncomfortable. Plenty of free parking outside, with no height restriction but location was so difficult to find even with GPS. Our room smelt so bad with strong smell of cigarettes. Our window was locked so we had to get up in night to ask for a key plus the air conditioning would not come on.

    Decent accommodation near the Charleroi Airport. Perfect to stay between flights. The hotel is located aprox. five minutes away from the airport arrivals/departures. The taxi ride will costs 6-8 euros.

    « great hotel for the airport with good food and drink »

    a good value hotel only 5 mins from the airport the rooms look like something from the 1970s and the beds were narrow but this was made up for by the attached restaurant which although the service was slow served some great food and beer the hotel offers a transfer to the airport every 30 mins please be aware that it now takes quite a bit of time to gain entry into the airport so plan well in advance - it took us over an hour to get into the airport and security

    « Nothing like the photos »

    I booked what looked like an modern aparthotel, which turned out to be a very dated twinned hotel room. The hotel is in the middle of no where, you can't walk out to shops and restaurants etc. The restaurant was closed when I arrived at 9.30pm and there was no other option to get food. I took the Hotel shuttle bus, aka a taxi. It cost 3.50 euros. Leave extra time to get to the airport. There was a huge queue at 5am due to extra security. Staff weren't "very friendly"...... ok they were rude.

    « Good value. Helpful staff. »

    We picked this hotel as it was close to the Airport and seemed good value. A twin room with breakfast for two totalled just £43 when booked on-line. The room was clean and quiet and breakfast was fine, with a good choice. The usual Continental fare, but also eggs, bacon and sausage. All buffet. Very good inclusive deal. Served from 6.30 to 10am. Special thanks to Anthony on Reception. We'd hired a car to get to a wedding. Unfortunately, we were struggling with the Satnav. Anthony kindly sorted it for us and saved the day. We can't comment on the restaurant as we ate at the wedding reception.

    « OK FOR STOPOVER »

    This hotel is an airport Hotel but not on the airport, its fairly remote so if you want to go anywhere such as downtown Charleroi you are looking at 20 euros one way. Hotel was clean, staff friendly, Bar OK, rooms clean but TV did not work. For short stop its fine, good car park which I think is free.

    « Rooms are good, restaurant too expensive »

    Rooms are good, internet worked well, but we went to the restaurant and they served us just a little piece of fish/meat and some leaves of salad and we paid 30€!!! Very excessive also because it was nothing special. Also, a 3' ride to the hotel costed us (6 people) 21 € total. They can make all the service better and cheaper...

    « Very poor and not clean »

    A bad experience. The receptionist was not very friendly. The room was not so clean and although there was a sign with the smoking ban, I clearly felt that we someone smoked in (the burns on the sink were the evidence). The blankets did not seem clean. The breakfast was normal. The valure for money is bad.

    « Hidden gem »

    Basic hotel but super resto. Excellent service, excellent wine. This is is what you need after a hard days work. Small a la carte (no salads, sorry), but excellent Weekly changing recommendation. Best ever beef tartare. tasteful. What else....

    « Nothing special, poor service. »

    On arrival there was no one at reception and l had to ring the reception bell several times before a receptionist arrived. The person who arrived to check me in was not welcoming and gave the impression I had actually inconvenienced her by turning up. There was no service with a smile and her manner was curt. The room was ok, clean enough, but nothing of an exceptional standard. Breakfast was terrible. I arrived at 7.50 and there was little left, including basics like bread, cold meats, hot fayre. The waitress appeared to be struggling to keep up with demand. The restaurant did offer very nice food, but service was unfriendly and extremely slow. I would not book again if a convenient alternative was available.

    « good for a night before your flight »

    This is a decent hotel when you have a flight the next day. Rooms are simple, but clean. Location is excellent, very close to the airport. The offered service with the airport transport was perfect. The restaurant is quite cosy for an airport hotel.

    « Fantastic team and warm welcoming place! »

    The quality of the place is pretty good and the team is amazing! THE place to stay for one night or more around the airport! (Beautiful cognac ABK6 also at the bar) Nice food, nice beer, as rooms, nice people... What else! I really recommend it ! Cheers

    « Trust Best Western! »

    On a first visit anywhere, if there is a Best Western available I would choose it! This one is obviously handy for the airport, the city of Charleroi and then the capital. I had a very comfortable room on the back of the hotel, a fine breakfast, helped by the hard working assistant, and found a very efficient chap on the front desk, on the morning of Thursday 24th. This was a definite improvement, after the apparent indifference of the late night one.

    « Nice but cheap hotel »

    Stayed here many times as it's close to my place of work. The rooms in the main hotel can be stuffy in the summer and the orange walks take getting used to but always found it clean and comfortable. If possible try to stay in one of the new apartment rooms across the car park. Better beds and lots more space. Breakfast I find is a let down, with choice very limited but it's better than it was six years ago when I first stayed there. At night the resturaunt is very good. Helpful staff and the steak is excellent.

    « Pros and cons »

    Stayed for one night, we were 4 people Pros: the room was very clean, spacious, and practical. The breakfast was correct also Cons: 2 people slept on the couch which wasn't confy. The TV didnt work well as we had only one remote controller for two TVs, and it automatically turned on both of them... Also, couldn't figure out why all the people at reception were unfriendly, cold... Anyway for one night it was correct

    « It is what it is... »

    Stayed here overnight on business arriving from Seville at 11:00pm with a 7am flight to Warsaw Modlin the following morning. Called the hotel from the airport requesting the shuttle bus but was told to get a taxi as it was too busy to send for the shuttle bus (the airport was mad busy). The night receptionist was extremely polite and helpful when I arrived and ensured that I had a 4:30am wake-up call and was booked in for the 5:30am shuttle bus. There was a heatwave at the time and with no air conditioning I had a bad night's sleep, but I'd put some of that down as worrying about oversleeping and missing my flight the next day. As it happens I got up before the wake up call and the night receptionist arranged for me to take the earlier 5am shuttle bus (which turned out to be a large taxi) to the airport. Can't really comment too much about the room as I was only in it for 5 hours maximum, but it served a purpose for a brief overnight stop.

    « Dirty room, and lying staff »

    Would never stay here again, would rather stay on the dirt mound nearby, would be cleaner than the hotel room. Stayed on the top floor of this hotel, room smelt awful, the drains weren't clearing properly. Complained to reception, no one can come up as only one person working the hotel. Receptionist was a liar. Furnishings in hotel room were scruffy and beds were held together with wood screws through broke joints. Complained about everything with this hotel but staff could not give a damn. General manager was unbelievably rude and basically called us liars and said we caused the damage. How the hell can we cause 30 years of neglect in one day? Stay elsewhere.
