After a two week business stay at the Thon Airport Hotel, (pronounced Ton) hotel in Diegem near Brussels, I feel glad to be home.
It’s not a bad hotel but on the other hand it’s not a home from home. Things like the restaurant being closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday don’t help when you stay any length of time. The hotel is situated in a ‘Hotel complex’ along with the likes of Holliday Inn, Ibis and other lesser known chains on the edge of the industrial area of Evere. You are cut off from eating places there, non exist without a taxi ride or the bus service. There is a train station about half a mile away which will Wisk you into Brussels in a short time but that don’t help when you’re tired and hungry. Bar snacks are available for between 9 and 15 Euro’s and when it is open, meals in the hotel cost from 19 to 23 Euros and not that good.
As others have mentioned, the breakfast available is ok but pricey at 20 Euros per day.
Internet is available – the first hour of use during your stay is free, but is charged a quite a high rate thereafter, unlimited use is 50 Euros. If you stay a night, one hours is ok but if you are staying longer it’s hand in pocket time whatever the time you spend there.
Rooms are fair but a bit jaded and probably could be better for the price you pay. There is a gimmick where if you choose not to have your room serviced one day, you will receive a 5 Euros voucher which can be redeemed in the bar or restaurant and over a two week period these can mount up.
The staff are friendly and helpful and I cannot fault them.
Parking is described as secure, but this only means there are barriers at the entrance to an otherwise open car park so don’t leave valuable in your car and at 15 Euros a night, just a bit OTT.
Stayed in better stayed in worse. The Thon is ok, pricey for what you get, but it holds a good convenient, position for the business area of Evere.
Improve the eating and drop the internet costs, give the rooms a lick of paint and a modern look and the Thon would be a much better place.
