    « nice place for a short stay for usiness »

    comfortable and nice breakfast served in the morning with nice restaurant. I stayed only one night, the room was clean and well furnished with coffee machine. So at the end of the day a nice experience with gentle service at check in / check out.

    « Nice Budget Hotel »

    This is a nice budget hotel in Wavre. This is located a bit far from the city center and close to the business area. If you have an assignment in GSK Wavre then this is the closest place to stay as it is really walking distance from GSK. You can get to the Wavre station and town center by public transport such as TEC bus 22, De Lijn bus 337, 341 and cabs. Perfect for one days business stay. The breakfast was nice too.

    « Horrible heating in room 15 , beware better to avoid during winters »

    Best Western never disappoints me. Checked in inspite of a horrible experience in Copenhagen. Spent one night in a cold room. The next day complained to reception. This time the room is cold and the heater works on and of. The temp is the room is 20deg as outside is -4deg. The Manager on duty was prompt to visit the room inspect and made the heater work. When asked she explained that it could be a loose contact but will not happen. In case it happens you can change to another room. Now it happens at 12am and reception says pack your bags we give you another room. Hilarious customer service to push the guest for a room change at mid nite. Hats of to the General Manager of the hotel and his service team for the high service standards!! My recommendation, the best is not to stay in Best Western, they are consistent in delivering this experience !

    « Good Hotel »

    Second visit as part of a coach party and again I was very happy with the hotel. The room was clean and tidy if a little bit dated. Breakfast was pretty good and enjoyable. No problem and would stay again without concern

    « Room smelled of cigarettes and was dirty »

    The hotel is in an industrial area and there is not much to do. The food in the restaurant was okay not really good. The room was dirty, very basic and smelled of cigarette smoke. I asked for another room but didn't get one as the hotel was fully booked or that was what they said. I would not recommend this hotel. The carpet was stained and the cleaning leaves a lot to be desired. The only good thing was the water pressure in the shower.

    « Lovely hotel for more than a business trip! »

    Myself, husband and four year old stayed in Wavre for three nights at the beginning of June. It was an adventure to get to using public transport/taxis but we had a lovely stay! It's primarily designed for business trips as the area is industrial and not located near anything. You can find a bakery and a sandwich shop located in walking distance. We stayed a Fri/Sat/Sunday in a family room with breakfast each morning. Breakfast was lovely and the hotel had recently been refurbished so it was all new and modern in design. Staff were friendly and accommodating but there is no restaurant/food available at weekends! We used the hotel as a base for a friends wedding and the hotel was full of friends for the event. Overall it was a really pleasant stay in a lovely hotel at a reasonable price.

    « "2 Night Stay »

    We stayed at this hotel for two nights with Newmarket Holidays as we were seeing a concert on the 8/7/2017 and it was a long way from the venue. Hotel clean beds very comfortable food o k. They main downfall of staying in this hotel was that it was in an industrial estate and there was nothing to eat when arrived after a long day travelling and nowhere local to get anything to eat. We were told the nearest place was about 3klm away and you would need a taxi to get there. Also no working air conditioner so room was very warm at night.

    « Poor Customer Service! »

    Family trip to Brussels for the weekend to visit family. The hotel itself was well presented, very clean, the rooms were again well presented with modern decor, however the customer service was poor... ?? due to us travelling as a large group, we commuted by a local taxi company to which we asked the receptionist if she would kindly order the taxi for us due to the language barrier, on the first day the lady on reception kindly said yes which was a big help for us, however the receptionist over the remaining 2 days we were there stated she was going above and beyond for us and it wasn't part of her job description. ?? breakfast in the hotel was served between 6.30 -10am, some of us had pre booked breakfast when booking the hotel and some of us were paying whilst there. On the first morning we went down for breakfast around 8.30 to which there was nothing left and nothing else being brought out, there was a shortage of cutlery and cups. One family member approached the waiter to ask for a coffee cup and the waiters response was 'what do you want me to do about it' and rudely told her to drink a coffee from a cereal bowl!! Due to this, it's safe to say we didn't bother the next morning. ?? prior to booking, we were informed we would have been able to have a sit down meal in the restaurant on an evening which is what we intended to do on the first night, however once there was told it wasn't possible due to a staff shortage. Overall, as previously mentioned, the hotel was clean and well presented, however the receptionists seemed very unorganised and provided poor customer service throughout our stay.

    « Quite OK when on work trip »

    Quite OK when arriving late with a rental car to the free parking and going for business meeting the next day. Simple but correct and clean room. Comfortable bed. Perfect breakfast. Not too much and not too little. Friendly and efficient staff.

    « Fine for the location »

    Fine for the location... a few days in the area for work and this was close to my location. A simple hotel but comfortable bed, clean and enough space. Good parking on site. Nothing to blow your mind but good for an overnight stop.

    « Not a very good impression »

    The room was dark and not very clean (I found a package of chips under my bed that had been left there from the previous client, I complained but the package stayed there for my entire stay and nobody cleaned it). At breakfast no sparkling water and when I asked they told me I had to pay extra. My colleagues told me that in the rooms on the second floor internet didn't work. In general the experience was quite negative.

    « EVER WANTED TO BE TREATED LIKE A KING BUT COULDN'T AFFORD IT? »

    Ever wanted to be treated like a King but couldn't afford it? Well, just go there. Very nice, modern, clean, easy to find hotel with lost of parking spaces. Extremely friendly, effective, and well organized staff who will go out of their way to help you feel as a King and not only as a number. We arrived after midnight and the waiter at the bar still managed to prepare us some food and serve us with a smile. Yes, you read it correctly. A meal, after midnight, and with a smile. Whow!!! I thought that could only happened in Spain. Thanks again to the whole staff.

    « Not a place to stay more than 1 night »

    The his is the kind of hotel you use on your way to somewhere. It is adequate but nothing great. The public areas are tidy and modern and the bedrooms small but fine for a night. The biggest let down is the bathrooms which are in much need of a lick of paint and modernisation. Over bath shower but no shower curtain means wet everything but its not a wet room !.

    « Functional and adequate »

    Good things: nice staff, close to offices, functional rooms, bright lobby and good bar, good wifi connection. Less than good: location in industrial area makes it not easy to get places without car, spartan room amenities and only CNN is English, no variation in breakfast buffet items, no restaurant. Overall I would stay here for business but probably not for personal.

    « Old and a bit run down »

    Check in / out: no problem Location: Light industrial/commercial area Breakfast: simple yet adequate Room: very old and dirty, carpets we're not vacuumed, sink counter was delaminating, water on the bathroom floor, paint was peeling. Would not recommend.

    « OK for a stop-over where you're wanting a bed to sleep »

    A short hop from the motorway, this BW is on the south of the city and served as a stopover on a journey. The hotel is on a corner next to a Mercedes dealer and as an obscured sign shows, you drive 200 m down the road and turn right into an industrial area. There you'll find a good amount of free parking and the hotel entrance. Reception was helpful and competent, and they'll give you a free wi-fi key for each device you need. The wi-fi today was just good enough for email. The smallish room had smart décor, was in good condition and the bathroom was up to scratch. However I couldn't stop myself taking a picture of the laziest bit of plumbing I've seen. The only other eyesore in an otherwise useful hotel, were the most unsubtle fire doors to the bedrooms. The breakfast was reasonably OK and could be better if only staff had the time to freshen up the buffet. By 9 am the scrambled egg was feeling abused. This hotel suits those with cars.

    « Wavre Best Western »

    Booked this hotel after reading some reviews on TripAdvisor. Plugged Best Western Wavre into the Navigation system of my rental car and it took me to an IBIS hotel near Walibi park. Checked my reservation and it said that the Best Western was really Brussels East. We then drove to the correct location. The best part of my stay at this location was Pauline at the reception. She spoke great English and went out of her way to improve our stay. We had a comfortable bed and the Internet service was ok. We enjoyed the breakfast the next morning. Note we didn't notice any restaurants other than the hotels near this Inn. Please also note that people reviewing this Inn tend to mix it up with the BW Wavre that is now the IBIS. I would stay at this location again.

    « Very average and dull location »

    I stayed here for two days during my visit to one of the client location Wavre. I opted for this as this was cheaper however, I find location is not great. The only nearby place to eat is Pizza Hut. - No restaurant nearby - No attraction or place to visit - Rooms are very small - A non happening place overall - Restaurant is nice and will help to customize food as per your taste - Price of the menu is quite cheap compare to other restaurant in the town Overall good in terms of value for money as what one can expect is a cheap price

    « You dont wanna die here »

    Sad surroundings, sad staff, sad elevator, even more sad carpet in the elevator. Never pay full price here. It is and should be a cheap stop over if other options have dried up. Outdated, not invested in, run down. A breakfast/reception working running around (literally) to keep up. A hotel in its dying days
