Average airport hotel
Posted Aug 30, 2014
I picked this hotel because it is close to Charleroi airport. It's an airport hotel. Set your expectation level about there, then its a reasonable hotel. We had a late flight, and I didn't want to do the 1 hour bus trip into Brussels, making it about 1.30am before we could get some sleep. And it was pouring! And yes, it was only for the one night. The room was clean, en-suite fine. There were no tea making facilities, and the bed was hard. However we were that knackered that sleeping wasn't a problem. I wasn't expecting much for breakfast, but it was fine - continental style. (There was bacon & sausage, however). The reception staff were excellent. I was advised by email to ring the hotel on arrival, and they would send a taxi to collect us. This worked very well. We had to wait about 10 - 15 mins, but managed to shelter from the deluge. A 5 - 10 min ride and we were there - 7 euros added to the bill. Seemed fair to me. The day-time reception staff was excellent. She advised us on the best way to travel to Brussels (to continue our holiday), and arranged a taxi to take us to the train station. We were in Brussels an hour later.
