unfriendly staff. place was smelly. breakfast was a joke!

Cons: No free Internet, Noisy, Poor breakfast
Unfriendly and uninterested staff. the whole place smelled terrible. breakfast was a joke. the coffee machine did not work and all the staff was willing to do was shaking their heads. parking was 15 Euro. the bed was unstable and noisy. the shower curtain moldy and so i can go on.

Not bad for an overnight stay but not more

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: Nothing close
The location makes it difficult to get into the center of town. The property is okay, rooms are nothing special but for a quick over night stay it was suitable at a decent rate.

Best Value for the Money

Excellent location with less than 3 miles from Brussels Airprt. Very comfortable rooms and beds. Free breakfast was plenty (even eggs). Another plus was free shuttle to the Airport. Best value for your money if you want to stay near the Airport. Would highly recommed it.

this is no holiday inn express

we stayed one night as it was close to the airport. this was a terrible hotel. the staff were surly and that is being kind. the room was very small. the bed was like sleeping on cement and the pillows were skimpy.paper thin walls that allowed us to hear converstations on both sides of us. we will be going back to Belgium in August and this hotel is not in our future again. do not be fooled into thinking this is the Holiday Inn's that we have in the states. pay a little more and get a decent hotel as there are tons by the airport.

Simple basic

I stayed one night. Holiiday Inn Express is an older property re-branded as an Express. It is next to a Holiday Inn. Taxi from the airport was 18 Euros. During the day and early evening there is a shuttle. Room was small, clean, very basic. Property could use some freshening up; paint is peeling here and there. I was not happy to see the mouse traps in the hallways. Breakfast was simple but nice: bread, rolls, ham, cheese, orange juice, coffee and tea.
