I've stayed at the Holiday Inn, Hasselt now four times, and each time I'm even more pleased than the last time. The facility is spotlessly clean, and the staff is so nice. Breakfast continues to be top notch. I love the wide variety, and they've added 'poffertjes' (tiny mini pancakes) to the breakfast buffet since my last visit. Yummy! The room amenities are still as good as ever; spotlessly clean and comfortable. I love the different varieties of pillows on the bed - lots of nice little touches make this such a nice place to stay.
The last time I was here, my one gripe was the gym. Since my last visit I was pleasantly surprised to see that the gym area was redone complete with light colors, and good machinery. There were free weights, an elliptical machine, two stationary bicycles and a treadmill. In addition there was a new TV as well. Despite being in the basement, the gym is now light and airy and I enjoyed working out in it.
The only tiny little gripe I have is the lunch I had in the restaurant. If one is going to put a 'Croque Monsieur' sandwich on the menu, please make it a true Croque Monsieur. The sandwich I received was a sad ham and cheese sandwich on toast, not grilled. It was lukewarm and I could pull the ham and cheese off the bread...which I did because the bread was so dry. I wouldn't recommend lunch sandwiches, but I do recommend the Spaghetti Bolognese which is good. I also recommend the bar - it was a nice place to unwind after a long day with a decent selection of beer.
Overall I'm very happy with this hotel, and will stay there anytime I'm in the Hasselt area. If I ever get a chance to bring my family with me across the pond to Hasselt on one of my trips to Belgium, I will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn. It's good for both business and pleasure.
