Requested extra pillows was told by reception didnt know where they could get any.. so was left with the one pillow.. The sliding bathroom door would not close so therefore no privacy and even if it could close was a tiny piece of glass so wouldnt have given much privacy anyway... rooms were very small

Stayed here with a group of 13. Was told a 'boutique hotel' was booked which immediately raises expectations. Unfortunately these were not met. Room on the 5th floor smelled of sewage, I'm sure it came from the bathroom. Lack of tea and coffee facilities in the rooms, bottled water in the rooms costs €3! Carpet in hallway looked tired. Staff...

it was a short stay but everything was OK !! As we do not stay often in a hotel we did not know that the electricity only is ON when the "door key " is put in the "card holder ". There was a large variety to have breakfast.

We booked this hotel in Genk because we attended a wedding in this Belgium town. (I guess, because the hotel was renovated and) the entrance was at the back of the street so it was not easy to find. The rooms looked like they were just renovated and looked modern but were a bit small. As we just stayed for...

Small but modern and clean rooms, in general the entire hotel is very modern. It is in Genk's city center and they have their own parking lot. The breakfast was really good and the service very attentive and pleasant. I found it really cheap for that what they offer. Recommended!
