Perfect location for the early riser to see all the finds on Sunday morning. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Only negative was the wifi kept asking the user to login which I kept getting booted off. Parking in adjacent garage was very convenient!

I've stayed here many times over the years as I enjoy the Sunday market in Tongeren. This time I made a mistake though as the Sunday,July 28th market was very watered - down. Only 1/3 as many dealers as usual. It is better to go earlier in the summer or another time of year.
That said, I always enjoy the Ambiotel. The location is by far the best for the Sunday market. Just walk out the door and you are there. Bridgette at the front desk is always very nice. I booked the room for 130 euros for two - which is a bit steep- although it always includes a nice breakfast.
The room smelled a bit of cigarette smoke- not too bothersome. Air conditioning in the rooms is a big plus! Hall was stuffy/ humid. Internet was spotty but I did connect. They have remodeled the hotel and even provide bath slippers and robes now! I will continue staying here and recommend it for those who want to go to the Sunday market. The town is getting a facelift and becoming more and more beautiful with every visit. It's richly steeped in history since Roman times and a very charming place. The church looks gorgeous after renovations - very impressive. My pet peeve (continual) is the unreasonable 10 am check-out time. Because of the market, they should allow 11, 12 or even 1 (13) o'clock check out as a perk. That would justify the 5-star hotel pricing for this beautifully situated family inn in Tongeren. Note that they will always allow you to store bags downstairs behind the desk if you are checking- out at 10 and still shopping the market.
I recommend the Ambiotel for location and for the attempt to be as close to 5-star as they are able in this building. I look forward to visiting again.

When going to Belgium and particularly Tongeren, I generally stay at this hotel. It's been recently renovated for the second time. In fact, that whole area of Tongeren has been renovated over the past few years. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is located near the town Centrum close to many restaurants and interesting attractions.

Room Tip: As someone else mentioned the internet is a bit flaky but with all that good beer downstairs who wan...

Stayed with a group of ladies on a weekend shopping trip. The location was perfect for the market, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. We shopped early and then returned to the hotel for breakfast, which was wonderful! I will be staying here on my next trip!

It's a nice hotel with a very good breakfast. Also the food in the restaurant next to it is nice. Rooms are clean and large enough, although the toilets are super small. The internet provided is worthless though. It drops connection every 5 minutes and whenever you have connection, it's slower than slow.

Great Location if you are there to shop. I would stay there again. It is no longer a Best Western just Ambiotel. Single room was 105 Euro with breakfast.

They do not have any three bed rooms but they will bring in a cot. No a lot of room when they do that.

If you go to Tongeren for the Sunday antique flea market, this is the hotel for you. The rooms are clean and have a good WiFi connection that is free, the hotel staff are cordial (but not helpful at all in recommending a restaurant because they want you to eat at the restaurant in the hotel - so glad I had TripAdvisor to help me find a restaurant!), and the breakfast is plentiful and delicious. The cappuccino was outstanding! The hotel is within a block of many antique street and warehouse vendors. I will certainly stay here again when I come back to shop for antiques! A most pleasant stay.
