The receptionist was very friendly. Fast check in. The staff who takes care of the breakfast were also very friendly. Good breakfast with lot of choice. Fast check out. Good room with enough space. No street noice, so no problem to have a good sleep during the night.
I arrived at the main station and then crossed the road and tramway to my hotel as it was less than 10 minutes walk and you could see the sign when you walked out of the station entrance The breakfast was hot sausages and baked beans and omlette
The hotel is just next to the station, its not too loud, the rooms are not too small and have everything you need. Breakfast is just fine and served very early so you can still grab something to eat before your morning train.
I was taking part in the Worlds 2016 wargame championships that took place in Roux. A number of us decide to stay at the ibis Charleroi Centre Gare as it is opposite the main rail station which has a direct service from Brussels Midi. We had traveled from the UK via Eurostar. The hotel was perfect for our needs. Charleroi is undergoing major rebuilding work behind the hotel. When this is finished it will look very impressive. The rebuilding work did not affect my stay in the hotel and I did not hear anything.
So much construction made it difficult getting in and out of the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was small, as I expected for an older European hotel, clean but a bit worn. The breakfast was very good.
It is fair to say that Charleroi is not going to be to everyone's taste, but for those who do want to explore this fascinating and friendly city, the Ibis, just over the river from the main railway and bus stations, is a perfect location. The lower town, which has most of the better restaurants, is currently largely a building site, the development being scheduled for completion in 2017. The upper town, which has the best bars around the Place du Manège as well as most of the nicer buildings, is a 10-15 minute uphill walk away. The superb photo museum is a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride from the Ibis.
Good clean hotel for travellers from and to Charleroi Airport. Good location, just opposite to the railway station Charleroi Sud. Good bus (sign A=Aeroport) connection (every half hour on workdays) to and from Charleroi airport (6 EUR, 15 min)
Staff and breakfast good Ibis standard but room average. Handy for station but not in very nice area for going out as lots of new building going on. Got plagued by beggars with dogs. Shame as been here before and was a very nice traditional Belgian town
The room was small but clean and comfortable. The best part was the wonderful view over the station. Staff were friendly and helpful especially booking a very early taxi for the airport. Good shower..
The room was a bit small, but it was quiet and comfortable. The location was convenient - just opposite the railway station. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was wonderful - fresh orange juice, a choice of hot dishes, lots of different kinds of pastries...
The hotel is very basic but ok if all you need is sleeping there a few hours before taking a train or a flight from Charleroi. The airport is very well connected thanks to a bus which leaves in front of the station, i.e. less than 100 m from the hotel. The heating was not working properly during my last visit in December 2014 and the staff did not react to fix the problem, although I reported it, but it was still ok to sleep.
Stayed here before and after our recent trip to Lille. As the name implies the hotel is a short walk to the train station. The bus station where you can get a bus to the airport is equally close. The staff were friendly and helpful and trying the local beer is a must. The only thing missing from the trip was an Everton win.
Hotel is near the central station, so the neighborhood looks a bit seedy. Staff is very friendly and the hotel is ok for one night. It seems Namur is better to stay in a leisure trip, but I do not regret have stayed in Charleroi.
We stayed here as my daughter was catching an ealry flght from Charleroi aiport. The directions to the airport are horrendous, be aware. Although not far from the hotel. (Not the hotels fault I must add). The hotel charges 10 Euros for parking, however there is plenty of free parking around the area. It is in desperate need of an upgrade as the rooms are very old looking, they also smell. However the staff are smashing and as we only stayed one night had a lovely time.
As usual with Ibis's, the hotel was very clean, staff were courteous and I could not fault it. The location is excellent for the train station or if you want to wander into town. The road in front of the hotel is presently dug up, but that make's it quieter there with no passing traffic.
Check your bill before leaving as we got charged double the price for breakfast. The rooms are confortable. This hotel is place in a bad area but was very quiet and we were lucky to be able to park our car in a secured area.
Como todos los Ibis ofrece lo básico a un precio razonable. No esperéis ameinities ni secador de pelo, pero si un personal amable y eficaz. Su ubicación es excelente para viajar en tren o en coche alquilado (recomiendo la segunda opción), pero nada buena si tenéis intención de pasear al anochecer; el barrio no es nada recomendable (prostitución, pobreza, alcoholismo...) pero tampoco se puede calificar de inseguro, cada cual va a su rollo. Si reservais a través de accorhotels y cogéis alguna oferta el precio es muy aceptable, sino no merece la pena pagarlo. As most Ibis Hotels, it offers basic facilities at a reasonable price. Its location is excellent to travel by train or if you rent a a car (I strongly recommend the second option), but not at all good if your plans include having a walk at night; the neighbourhood is not recommendable at all (prostitution, poverty, alcoholism...), but it can neither be qualified as unsafe, everyone minds his own business. If you book through accorhotels website and you pick a good deal, the price is very reasonable, otherwise it''s not worth it.
Stay away from room 201 and 301, they are directly opposite the elevator door, very noisy late at night and early in the morning with careless people been loud. Breakfast at 15 Euro is way overpriced, and you can’t avoid parking in the garage at 10 Euro per night too as they are digging up the road right outside the hotel. Excellent the free WiFi in the room, I clocked 30Mb speed in download, amazing. No hair dryer and no tea or coffee making facility in the room.
