Good hotel for the value
Posted Apr 9, 2015
Check-in was quick, staff was polite and helpful, although not all of them were very knowledgeable in terms of how to get to some places (I think at least one said it was her first day). At least they were on site at late hours. Easy to find and very close to the train station. Room was comfy, large with nice facilities and a nice sized TV with a handful of channels, although most were in French or Dutch.
A few issues: the breakfast buffet is nice, but it's not on site, you have to walk a few blocks to their partner hotel. Only a mild inconvenience though, since it's not far. One evening there was a large group of students who monopolized the internet making it impossible to connect. They called their technician and said that it "can't be fixed". Might be time for an upgrade? The room was a bit on the cold side, particularly the bathroom, even though the heater was on full blast. Speaking of bathroom, the hot water lasted only a few minutes. I don't take long showers anyway, but it's good to know for those who do.
