I was moved to this hotel after an overbooking at the sister Carbon hotel.
The lobby is on the first floor and a single lift and stairs lead to this. Take the lift if you have luggage.
On my visit there was a very friendly, helpful receptionist and as I had an early start next day I was able to settle my bill there and then.
My room was small, with a single bed and en suite shower. Compact is definitely the theme, with no wasted space.
The room was very clean, and I had a comfortable and quiet night despite being at the front of the hotel overlooking the busy central road.
Despite initial wariness at having to transfer to this hotel, I would certainly consider another short stay.

I came to Genk in March 2013 on business. I have visited this hotel on four occasions. Great rooms, modern and clean. Breakfast A+ nice and good selection. Close to location of Winterslag where I was on business. Near by is train and bus station. Also fantastic restaurants in Genk. Hotel has WiFi and car parking.

Would recommend to anybody

This was an excellent hotel, complete with motivational quotes decorating the hallways in bold posters. The decor was sleek, soothing and modern, using browns, greys, and blues. Great, smiling and helpful Belgian staff gave very frank and helpful tips. The breakfast is a little expensive, but nice. Since everything is drivable in Belgium in one day, everywhere is a nice location outside of Brussels, where a small room is very expensive. This town is less than two hours away from Brussels, and it is quaint and sweet with some good, cozy international eateries and a big carrefor. Bathroom doors are see- through, but just be prepared. There are many amenities and cubbies for longer staying guests.

Room Tip: There is a little elevator, so any floor is good. There are no really great views, just of the stree...

Hotel Ecu is a good choice for short travel stay with standard options that hotels of this category suggest. Rooms are clean and tidy, but to my taste the room design and ergonomics lack cosyness and space. Quality of service and friendliness of the staff is really great and welcoming.
