As a rule I do not write many reveiws, and normally only write them if I think think service is excellent... This is not however why I am writing this review... This was not just a bad hotel, this is a contender for one of the worst!!
To start, despite being relatively close to the airport it is not close to anything. Walking to the area I soon realised it probably wasn't the nicest or most welcoming part of town, this is not that big a deal however. Once we arrived we spoke to the receptionist man, he seemed to be the only person working at the hotel. He was rude and vague, gave us a code for our room to get in and out as they seem to be using some code system that might have been cool in the 60's.
The room was tiny and looked horrible ...the tv remote didn't work and you could get one channel with reception on the 10 inch 1992 model tv they supply you.. There is one PowerPoint that is in a horrible position and is so close to the wall most plugs won't fit, don't even bother with an adapter... The room is a sweat box you could open the window awkwardly however then you have both a window flapping around as we'll as lots of bugs flying in.. The bed as well had bed bugs with both myself and my girlfriend waking up with bite rashes on our arms and legs! This didn't surprise me as it barely looked like the room was even cleaned, the towels given in our room were on the floor next to the tap that couldn't be regulated in temperature and were only slightly bigger than hand towels... The bathrooms are shared, no problem as we were aware of this but we at least thought they should be clean, the toilet was saturated in urine all over and the shower was worse than a shower at the beach and had a auto timer that made it turn off every 15 seconds so u had to keep pressing it...
We are backpackers, we are used to rudimentary accomodation, I have stayed in many hostels and motels and all over the world but this one certainly left me with a bad taste... Ohh and not to mention we asked for a morning taxi to pick us up.. When we awoke and hopped in the taxi, they charged us a rip of price each as well as saying we can't leave yet as they have organised other people to come into our taxi without notifying us!!
There is soo much wrong with this hotel I could continue rambling on, the colour scheme, the filthy carpet, the terrible service, the dodgy creeps who hang around outside, the one pillow we were given.. But enough, please listen to me and stay elsewhere! This place is horrible, If u want to stay near the airport consider going and sleeping at the airport as this is a far better alternative to Formula 1 Charleroi!!!!
