Good location

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Stefan Couples - 10/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good location - close to the train station and airport bus. The furniture and decorations are a bit old fashioned and outdated, but in overall good condition.

We are delighted that you appreciated our convenient location and proximity to public transport, we are sorry that not all aspects of our hotel met your expectations. Rest assured that we have noted your comments. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes, Aude Awoust, Manager

Convenient location but not a happy stay

Sticks B. Couples - 16/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Having used two Ibis hotels previously & having stayed in Charleroi before, I decided to book this hotel based mainly on it's location. I'm sorry to say that it didn't meet my expectations. The room was very dated, hard mattress, no tea/coffee making facilities (though I should have checked that first, so my mistake), very limited wardrobe space & one chap in particular on reception who seemed disinterested at best. Luckily, the other chap on reception was more helpful. The cleaners were ok but for some strange reason, we had no fresh towels on our last day & had to make do with bath mats, even after I went to reception twice to try & rectify the situation. All in all, the experience soured my memories of Charleroi & I very much doubt I will be returning, though I wouldn't rule out Ibis hotels in the future.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your review. We are pleased that our location was perfect for your needs but we're sorry that not everything was entirely to your satisfaction. We are sorry for the issues that you experienced as we always try to deal with any concerns immediately. Our challenge is to meet our guests' individual tastes when it comes to bedding and regret if this was not to your liking; our apologies for any inconvenience. We welcome feedback from our guests and your comments will be taken into consideration. We hope that you will allow us the opportunity of providing you with an improved stay in future. Best regards, Aude Awoust, Manager

Convenient for train and CRL airport

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Griffin Business - 12/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a terrible stay, no rest and not comfortable. At least the hotel is close to the train and also easy for getting to CRL airport - in fact the access to TEC Bus line A makes staying at Ibis Centre Gare convenient when needing to catch an early flight because the airport hotels are poorly located and transport is difficult. But I wouldn’t stay at Centre Gare again because the air stunk, the windows don‘t open, the room was too hot and the air conditioning doesn’t work. Sleeping was impossible.

Dear Griffin, Thank you for sharing your review. Whilst we are glad that our convenient location was suitable for your needs we do regret that your room didn't meet your expectations. We encourage guests to let us know of any issues they may have while they are here in order for our team to take immediate action, and if necessary, to find a more suitable room, subject to availability. Some of our windows cannot be opened for safety reasons, however, we do have an air conditioning system throughout the hotel. We hope that you will return in the future for a more enjoyable stay. Best regards, Aude Awoust, Manager

Cee Business - 21/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very noisy room, and very disappointed with parking charge of 12.50 euros per day, which was NOT mentioned when booking the room.

Dear Cee, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are concerned to read your comments on your recent stay. Please note, our private paying parking is to facilitate your stay and is optional; however, free parking is available in the city and our team can of course assist with suggestions on the best area. We are also sorry to hear that you were disturbed by other guests, we wish you had made us aware at the time, our team would have done their utmost to resolve the situation. We hope to welcome you back for an improved return visit. Kind regards, Aude Awoust, Manager

Jelena Business - 05/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Convenient location close to the train station and big shopping center. Easy to get to the CRL airport. The rooms are comfortable and clean. A kettle would be very handy to have in the room.

Dear Jelena, Thank you for your review of your recent stay. We are pleased your room met your expectations as well as our proximity to local facilities and the airport. We regret we don't have a hospitality tray in our rooms, however, our bar is open 24hours and you are welcome to take any purchases to your room. We hope to see you again in the future.

rogermanley Friends getaway - 23/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

The Rotterdam shower had a non slip floor, the one in Charleroi did not and it felt slippery - did not feel too safe when entering or leaving. Breakfast fine, reception fine but with only one person manning reception and the bar simultaneously it dsid not seem very efficient.

Dear Rogermanley, Thank you for sharing this review of your recent stay. We are glad you had a good stay. However your remarks have been noted and we are always open to suggestions. It’s great that you enjoyed our breakfast buffet. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best wishes, Aude Awoust, Manager

Great Hotel on the River, very close to everything, it looks was exceptionally hot during my stay, 45C+ and the air conditioner in the room was fantastic. Excellent staff, the young lady at the front desk was exceptionally helpful and very friendly.

One night stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Nomad27866158477 Family - 29/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Location is very good, near the train station but too much noise in the hallway (sound insolation issue). The superior room is simple, nothing special but the quality of the mattress is good. Overall, the price per night (100 €) is too expensive for the quality. At least the breakfast should be included.

Dear Guest, Thanks for taking the time to comment on your stay at our hotel. We are glad that you appreciated our convenient location which has great access to public transport. We regret you had not mentioned the inconvenience you experienced with the noise. If we had known we would have been happy to allocate you into a quieter room, depending on the availability at the time. We do try very hard to keep our prices competitive and apologise that we did not meet your satisfaction in this regard. We hope everything else was to your satisfaction. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind regards, Aude Awoust, Manager

faktor82 Friends getaway - 10/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

What is really good about this hotel, the "taxi shuttle" just for 17 € from Charleroi airport :)The hotel has a very good location, just next to the railway station a and a shopping mall :)Very nice breakfast and female staff is very helpful, can't say that about the male staff, as the hotel bar should be 24 hours but only when there are females at the reception as they also serve the drinks... :-/

Dear Guest, Thanks for taking the time to comment on your stay at our hotel. Our location is one of the things we are very proud of about our hotel. We are so lucky to have such a strategic position that brings transport options to our guests and must-see attractions closer. We appreciate your positive remarks for our female team members. Please be assured that all the team should be covering the Reception as well as the bar area as this is standard practice in Ibis hotels. We will ensure that each and every team member is aware of this and will continue to provide this service level in the future. The whole team hopes to see you again. Best wishes for 2019, Aude Awoust, Manager

vermeir2018 Family - 25/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

Unfortunately the airco was broken. Therefore we had to keep the windows open at night because of the heat which led to a restless night due to the street noise. The staff was very helpful though and breakfast was very good.

Dear Darren, Thanks for sharing your experience at hotel Ibis Charleroi Centre Gare. We really appreciate your kind words about the good quality of service. As you might have been advised, we are currently experiencing a temporary lack of air conditioning. We apologize for any inconvenience caused because of this. Our maintenance team is however working to have this quickly addressed and all guests are being made aware at check in. Thank you for the mention of our tasty breakfast. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you in your next visit. Best regards, Aude Awoust, Manager

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.

Dear Guests, Thanks for your nice comment. We're pleased to note you had a lovely time among us. Your touching words about the good quality of service and reception are really valued. We will share them with the whole team. We're also glad to read our varied and delectable breakfast buffet was to your liking. Thanks for referring to your room's space and quietness.

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
