Jm Business - 16/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

normal experience with ibis until I enter the room, but then... The double bed was no more than 2 single mattresses joined together with a big gap between them On the bathroom just shower towel no small towels! Paper tissues, not in sight. The toilet paper reminded me my 1st time in Russia back in 1990s sand paper texture! Price quality relation low, looked like ibis budget the room experience.

Very good and friendly service! The dinner (COVID-19: to be ordered and to be eaten in room) was a microwaved dish of acceptable quality. The extra drink served was another well appreciated gesture. The location in the center is great.

Bedbug infestation

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Torsten M. Families - 21/09/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The communication with the hotel in advance was very helpful and prompt. During our stay, we had several problems with accessing our rooms, as the access cards stopped working, so we had to approach the clerk downstairs in our pyjamas to enable access to our rooms again (306 and 307). He was very helpful and provided several new access cards. Breakfast the next morning was good. After waking up, though, we noticed hundreds of small bites of some kind of insects/bedbugs all over on our bodies (specifically on the exposed parts like heads, arms, legs), specifically the three people who stayed in room 307 (but also the others in rooms 306 were lightly affected). We don't know the origin of these, it might be that they originated from the extra children bed that was placed in our room. The itching and scratching got worse over time, and lasted for several days. We informed the hotel about the bug infestation by email after our departure, and sent them several pictures taken from the worst affected body parts, but they informed us that they haven't been able to detect any problems/bugs in the room. I found this reaction totally inappropriate. What then should be the source of the bites other than the hotel room (the bites appeared exactly after that night, and we did not stay in any other hotels the nights before and after). It wasn't moscito bites, that's for sure (no moscitos seen/heard during that night), and it wasn't an allergic reaction (all inhabitants of the room had the bites appear simultaneously).

Dear Torsten, Thanks for your feedback on your stay. We are grateful for your mention of the easy communication you had prior to your arrival. However, we apologise for any inconvenience due to the issue you had with your card keys and we will be looking into this matter. We would like to assure you that as we take issues such as these very seriously indeed, ECOB specialised in bed bug detection checked both rooms as well as the extra bed which was in the room. Even the mattress and wooden boards were partially detached and nothing at all was found in both rooms. We immediately put the rooms out of order and they were not allowed to be occupied until we had received the official report from the specialized company. Nothing was detected after the inspection and mentioned in their official report. Once again we can only reiterate how sorry we are for any inconvenience. We hope to be able to welcome you again in the future. Best regards, Debbie DE CLERCK, General Manager

Another positive Ibis experience: - booking was straightforward online - hotel called in advance and inquired about preferred sleeping arrangement (2 single beds or one double) - arrival at 2am due to delay at Eurotunnel was no problem, 24/7 reception - car parking in garage is close by and they offer an extra rate (6 Euros) for hotel guests - beds were very comfortable, room and bathroom clean, shower worked perfectly and is spacious - room was quiet - very good WiFi with no extra charge - we didn’t use bar/room service/TV/breakfast but all looked good - interesting fact sheet about Sint Niklaas in room made us curious to explore the place a bit another time - reception staff were friendly - we would book again and recommend Ibis Sint Niklaas Centrum -

I have stayed here several times before. As always I was welcomed by the friendly staff. My room was ready for me when I arrived. I had an Extra Saver Package that includes breakfast. The breakfast was excellent with a very good choice on offer. The bar is excellent with a good choice of Belgium Beers. I particular liked that there was complimentary cheese and salami on offer at the bar in the evenings. The room was a very good size and was kept clean at all times. I stayed for 3 nights. I wood recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Sint Niklaas.

Dear Robert, Thank you for positively reviewing your time at Ibis Sint Niklaas Centrum Hotel. Please accept our sincere gratitude for regularly choosing to stay with us. We're so pleased you enjoy our extensive hot and cold breakfast buffet, and we're delighted that everything meets your expectations.

JohnL7977YA Business - 10/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

Booked on-line a few days before and, as requested, confirmed my booking with my Amex card, giving all details.On checking in, the pleasant young guy dealing with me asked for me to pay there and then. I stated that I much preferred to pay on departure. He agreed but was immediately interrupted by a colleague of his, who stepped over and took on a very unpleasant approach towards both her colleague and me. She contradicted him (right in front of me- so very unprofessional!) and stated that "he" (that is, me, the paying customer, standing right in front of her!) had absolutely to pay there and then. I asked why, and she stated that was how it was. No logical explanation, just a very unpleasant and hostile manner. I had no choice but to accept- and was then refused an invoice! "You will get it in the morning when you leave".All of this in front of her colleague and by now, one or two other guests waiting to check in. No concept at all of correct customer service, and in fact downright nasty. What a great start to my stay! Why ask for all cc details when making the booking if they then force me to pay on arrival? Do I look like a thief or a tramp??? And why work in a service industry like this if you cannot deal nicely with your best customers- who, by the way, have done nothing wrong?As a Platinum cardholder (i.e. minimum 60 nights/year in Accor hotels), I found the whole experience totally unacceptable. I will never stay in this hotel again; my business will require at least 10-12 nights in the Sint Niklaas/Zele area in the next 12 months, but I will not spend one cent more of my money in the Ibis Sint Niklaas!

Dear John, We are sorry that your recent stay with us did not meet your expectations. While we understand your frustration, we wish you had given a chance to help you understand our billing policy. However, we would like to let you know that on check in our guest can choose if they prefer to give a guarantee by credit card or directly pay upon arrival. If they guest decide to give a guarantee by credit card, the guests can pay on departure. During check-in, we can give a proof of payment. The official invoice we can be sent by email during the night, or we can hand over during departure. As for our service, we assure you that your satisfaction is very important to us and we always go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable. If you ever change your mind, we would love to welcome you again. Best wishes, Debbie DE CLERCK, General Manager

no problems with this IBIS. Good location, silent rooms, nice bar. excellent breakfast. Parking under the square Get a exit ticket from the reception for six euros. Always look forward to come back. Try the Chinese the fortune, its really good, and for a Flemish touch HET LAATSTE AVONDMAAL behind the old church. Some serious good pubs there as well
