Have been staying in this hotel for many years now.more recently I can see there has been some focus for quality of food in the restaurant. Ate twice in there last week, very good both times !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kirsten8888 Great hotel an d convenient for airport
Very comfortable and well kept. Staff provides great service. Easy to catch shuttle to/from airport, takes about 10 minutes - be sure to check schedule as it runs at set times in the morning and evening.
Quiet and has food available in fridge in lobby in case you need late-night food and the restaurant is closed. I've stayed here twice and will stay again if I travel through.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Near the airport
I guess airport hotels are only designed for an overnight stay but I was there for a week for a conference.
The room is comfortable and the hotel is in walking distance of the Diegem train station.
The bar is tiny and soulless and the restaurant is totally soulless and gloomy.
A good breakfast but always overwhelmed by airline crew who are there by the dozen.
I've been there several times and one day they might finally fix the lift!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StephenUK Cold, damp, dirty...
I've stayed at this hotel before on one of the upper floors and my recollection is that the stay was absolutely fine. On this occasion i was given a room with 2 double beds rather than the standard room id booked and this meant i was placed in a room on the ground floor along one of the least appealing corridors i've ever walked through in a hotel.
My room was cold as i entered and I soon realised why, the room in question was at the end of the hotel so had 2 outside walls... one of which had a very bad and clearly visible damp problem. The air conditioner/ heater was situated very near the damp area and was woefully inadequate to heat the room either due to the ambient cold temperature or poor placement of thermostat, so having turned it on to make the room warmer, i just ended up with a very warm corner of the room, and the rest (especially the bathroom) freezing.
Following that unpleasant find, and the generally unwelcoming and unrelaxing nature of the room i began to notice the poor refurbishment and poor repair of the room... and then to top it all the lack of cleanliness.
The lights were so gloomy that it was hard to tell if the room had been cleaned very well but when i saw the cobwebs (spiders webs) i wondered if id been put in a room that was hardly ever used. There were cobwebs everywhere, i counted 4 large and dirty ones, before i stopped looking...
It was around 1am at this point and i needed rest and didn't have time for a discussion at reception, I assumed the cleanliness would be solved the next day and i would speak to reception on my return from the office.
So I went to bed, and slept badly due to the either very hot or very cold room depending on whether the heater kicked in... When i returned from the office the next evening my room was not cleaned, that is to say all the cobwebs were still in place, and it was of course still cold and damp due to the poor heating.
When i made a representation to reception about the state of my room (photos in hand) i was immediately moved down the corridor to an identical room (minus the damp and cobwebs), this solved the problem, but the replacement room was still pretty unpleasant and when you consider the price there is a mismatch.
So what id say about this hotel is that its inconsistent, there is a lack of attention to detail and clearly an issue with cleaning. The staff are very helpful but it seems understaffed otherwise these issues wouldn't happen in the first place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlexF999 a good place to stay
A comfortable room with good facilities. The hotel was quiet despite being fairly crowded and close to airport. Only difficulty was that shuttle service does not run all day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lars62 Brussels Airport Hotel, more yhen you expect.
The Holiday Inn hotel in Brussels airport is close to the airport, but not so close that you suffer from disturbing traffic.
You can hear the take off of the airplanes sometimes, but not really disturbing. I use the hotel because it is also close to the office area of Diegem where most Global companies have their HQ for Belgium or Europe.
In the evening after rush hour you are in the city center within 10-12 minutes drive.
The rooms are rather big, flat screen TV with an enormous number of channels, simple bathroom good desk to do some work, or write reviews for hotels.
The Gym and Swimming pool (indoor) are good and as far as I know included in the price
Staff is very friendly and multilingual.
Restaurant has a good chose in fish, meat and pasta's. One drawback and that is that it is situated in a non Window area, so better not have a romantic dinner with your partner....
