Really close to the centre, everything walkable. Staff friendly, hotel clean and food was above what I expected. The room was small but covered the basics. If you don't plan on staying in the room unless sleeping then it's fine. Bathroom was tiny....

We were satisfied by our hotel choice. It's fair Ibis standard hotel, with (as usual) an excellent bed, well spacious, though a bit basic, room. We enjoyed our stay. Some cons: breakfast cost is a bit expensive, the hotel located in a middle between city center and train station, so you have to walk or take the tram to reach...

I only use Ibis if anything else is unaffordable, I was rather pleasantly surprised to find this hotel to be quite pleasant. It was the standard Ibis room but very fresh looking, with a nice helpful staff. It was still outrageously overpriced (like any hotel in Belgium), but with every alternative way over the pain threshold, overall I cannot complain,...

We have stayed in this economy style Hotel from the Ibis chain on several occasions and have found it to be on each stay a really great choice.

The hotel was clean, modern reception and bar area. The rooms were quite small but still clean and had everything you needed. Very good price and good location. The street seemed quiet considering how close to the centre we was. Ideal for a budget weekend break!
