The village has nothing to offer for tourists. There is one bar & grill next door to the hotel & that is pretty much that. Once the bar & grill closed at about 11 there was no were else to go.

Overnight stopover

Posted Oct 3, 2014
Pros: The convienence to our travel plans
Location: Good inexpensive restaurant next door
Simple budget hotel right on the motorway network, convenient for stopover. Nice restaurant next door. However the hotel has had a name change since we made our booking, making it difficult to find! Sat nav told us we had arrived but no Alkna Hotel good job I'd printed off the Expedia details - We recognised it from the picture, Now called Express Hotel

I have not had good experience. Staff was less and there was not any service after 9:00 pm.

we stayed here in a family room with our 2 boys, on our trip from Paris to bruges. Functional clean room. Windows effectively keep out the noise of the motorway. There are plenty of choices of places to eat: KFC, choice, flunch, poivre rouge (restaurant & grill) and a lidl. The hallways did stink of cigarette smoke, but fortunately the rooms did not. The toilet/shower is tiny, so larger people may struggle.

Reception staff very friendly and helpfull. However, the overall smell of smoking in the hotel was a bit annoying and the blanket provided on the bed was far from clean a fact which unfortunately we only found out the following morning. We don't have high aspirations for a budget hotel but clean bedding is a must and being able to breath fresh air is a minimum requirement. Breakfast was good.

Absolutely fine

Stayed here for one night en route to Paris. You check yourself in via a machine outside and we had a family room with 4 beds in it, a double and bunk beds. Beds were comfy, small shower / toilet room. That's it. I got what I paid for and the breakfast was really good. Clean hotel near the motorway and in an industrial area from what I could tell but surrounded by other hotels. There was a good looking restaurant / grill place about 100m away from the hotel. You cannot miss it. We arrived very late so didn't need anything. Vending machines in the foyer sold good snacks like waffles and also hot chocolate for the kids. Would stay here again if doing the same trip

Good Location .

Have stayed here a few times . Last time I paid by card it did not ask me for card details . This time I had to pay before I got the key so I hope I will not get charged twice .Will always use this as it is convenient and can gain access at very late times . My only criticiism was that the stairs and coridoors smelled of sweat and cigarette smoke . Room clean and tidy .Very good value

the smallest room I have ever experinced

Posted Aug 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
checked in by a fantastically friendly member of staff.allocated a room and it was a rabbit hutch,could'nt open the bathroom door and when you did get in there was no room to stand at the washbasin as the toilet was so close.opened the bedroom window which came so far across the bed when I got up hit my head on it cutting myself.we have stayed in many budget hotels in france and this goes to show you only get what you pay for I would rather pay an extra couple of euros and stay in The B and B chain.

Decent room for the price,small but adequate. Staff was helpful. Hotel close to motorway. Breakfast was limited for the price but there are a number of eating establishments nearby.
