“Lovely hotel with a beautiful view”
Reviewed 14 March 2011

One of the beautiful hotels that is very close to the airport and they have a free shuttle service from the airport every 30 mins. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is elaborate. The interiors of the hotel is very nice and rooms are very comfortable and clean. If your lucky you can get a room with a good view. The train station is walking distance and citicentre by train is 15 mins away. Free internet available and breakfast is included in the tariff.

My favorite hotel near the Brussels airport - I've probably stayed here more than 40 nights over the last two years.
Free shuttle to/from the airport, free WiFi, really good breakfast (expensive), decent fitness equipment, about 7 minute walk to the train for a 20 minute train ride to the downtown area.

If you are a tourist, I'd recommend staying downtown near the Grand Place, but if you need to be near the airport or Diegem, this hotel works well.

The hotel is just about a few Kms from the Brussels National Airport. They have free pick up and drop facilities to the Airport. The restuarant is good in terms of the quality of food that is served. Every ordered is carefully taken and allowed to be tweaked as per the requirement of the customer

This hotel is very close to Brussels airport, but there is little or no aircraft noise in the hotel, in fact if your room faces the right direction you can see the planes taking off. If you are a business traveller this is fine, but you are a long way from the city centre of Brussels. There is nothing of interest in the locality of the hotel. Getting into the city means using an expensive taxi cab or a train journey from Diegem which involves a change of trains at Brussels Nord. Probably easy if you are young, but a bit daunting if you are older and unsure of where you have to go.

The hotel itself is clean and the rooms are standard rooms, but nothing special. Internet access is free as long as you press the correct button when you log on! Restaurant is expensive for evening meals. Breakfast is what you would expect, buffet style with a choice of continental or full cooked breakfast. The staff are a bit slow-for example when the fresh orange juice machine ran out, no one bothered to fill it up again. There only ever seems to be 1 person in reception, so if they are busy when you ring down, they simply ignore the telephone.

The shuttle bus service to an from the airport and to certain businesses in the locality is very good.

I stayed at the Van Der Valk for a few days for a conference there. It is a bit distant from downtown Brussels (40-50 euro taxi ride, but also train service available) but if you are meant to stay there or looking for a spot close to the airport it is an solid choice. It has a free shuttle to the airport which is convenient. I was pleasantly surprised by the food in the restaurant and for the catering for the conference. The breakfast particularly is very good. The lounge and restaurant areas are well decorated as well with comfortable seating. The rooms are of a good standard and come with a free set of soft drinks which is a nice touch. The wireless internet has excellent speed and is complimentary. The gym is ok- it only has a few machines so if you don't time it right you are out of luck. The one thing which was annoying was the gym opening time (only 7 am - which ruled out most mornings for workout). It was explained there was a room next to the gym and they couldn't open it any earlier. But for a business hotel this is a big miss, and many of my colleagues were in a similar situation- forcing some of us to run out in the cold to get exercise. Aside from this - the hotel is pleasant to stay in and the conference services were excellent.

Five minutes fromt he Brussels Airport the hotel is ultra modern and spartan- with unusual dark wood furniture (picture Danish Furniture dyed dark brown). The rooms are clean, modern and spartan. Free internet connection and decent work out facility (no weights but recumbent cycles and ellipticals. Full service restaurant has decent food- but service that is slow and often wrong. We had a group dinner the second night (for about 15 people) and it took hours to get through it with food showing up over a 30 minunte period. The previous night I dined with a colleague and our order was hashed up and the bill was wrong.

Break fast is included- it was an austere Euro continental breakfast.

The price was right and also the location if you are bringing people in from the airport is hard to resist.

Large room with comfy bed, wifi, clean bath, and very quiet even so close to the airport. FREE shuttle bus to the airport every 1/2 hour. Bar, restaurant, and great service from the staff. After the travel chaos in Europe recently Van der Valk was a lovely relief. I was able to get a last minute reservation and was very pleasantly surprised.
