Campanile Hotel Brussels - Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Quite hotel located in an industrial estate.about a 10 minute drive from the airport. Rooms are small, but ok for a one night stay No aircraft noise.Restaurant had a very limited menu, breakfast was ok.

Room was very hot, although you could open window the safety shutters blocked any air circulating. Amazing shower, good bed. Not quiet-plumbing seemed to run every 15mins. No probs at all with wifi, code is in room. Kettle, but only plastic water cups-i was worried the heat woyld melt them! I appreciate people may steal china cups, but cardboard coffee cups would be better. I walked from the airport-about 3km but not direct. I wouldn't want to do it at night/with kids. breakfast was ok. Continental with some hot food. Not worth €11. Room smelt musty. An effort is being made to address previous issues raised in the feedback. Don't pay more than €50 for a room and you should be happy.

I know this hotel is only 2 star but still... The towels were threadbare, tiles grubby, there was tea and coffee but no mugs only plastic cups, only one flat pillow each and the whole room needed a lick of paint. The food was especially expensive, I ordered a crispy chicken salad for €14. It was basically a chicken fillet chopped up on some salad. Could have done better at home for a fiver. Staff... The 2 ladies I spoke to at the desk were lovely. The guys in the restaurant were not friendly, felt like they didn't want us there and could not really be bothered. There was no welcoming greeting or even a smile. Pretty sure I read before I booked that the rooms were sound proofed due to being close to the airport, if they were it was badly done. Could hear traffic on the road and people coming and going. I can say the shower was amazing, very powerful and much needed after my holiday. Over all... Over priced, tired looking, in need of refurbishment and not welcoming.

I am not fancy, but this hotel is a challenge for any traveller. The biggest problem I had: I left belongings in my room and they were stolen (clothes, food... staff you do not keep in the safe normally). The hotel is in bad shape, unkept (check pictures). Staff at reception are not very kind, they did not help me a bit with my stoleng belongings. Poor ventilation in the room, it smells terribly.

I guess you can say you get what you pay for. Spent a week at this establishment and I can't say it was the worst not best stay I've ever had. What I disliked the most was the overpriced breakfast/food they offered and that the cleaning staff would randomly enter rooms with their master key to clean. Regardless if we hung the 'Do not Disturb' or 'Please clean room' tag on the doorknob. At one point I was half asleep and a cleaning lady entered quietly however quickly left as I pretended to remain asleep, and I wasn't pleased. I also would have expected that if the checkout time is at 12PM, even if we are the ones checking out or not - that cleaning serviced would not commence as early as 8AM. Sometimes I would be awoken by the cleaning staff knocking on my door, or their exceptionally loud music outside my room. Also their cleaning is bare minimum, at most they only do the bed sheets and replace wet towels. Dust and everything aren't cleaned.

Lovely people greet you at this place, and for the staff I would give a 5 star rating. Sadly, the infrastructure and support badly lets them down, hence only 2 stars. Without the staff this would have been one star. Location. €20 taxi ride from airport gets you off to a poor start. Location is a little run down, and the rooms are possibly a few years overdue a lick of paint and tart-up. My first impression of the room was worsened by the fact that I had to walk past a group of drinkers outside one of the rooms which I found a little intimidating. The room itself is OK, but with chipped and yellowed paint, and wood chip effect on the walls it came across as very basic. Facilities were clean and everything worked, but the room was cold. The walls were near paper-thin, and even with earplugs I had almost no sleep. Dinner was of poor quality, and €14 for a microwave meal wasn't great value. Breakfast at €11 was expensive for toast coffee and marmalade. On the plus side, the place was thoroughly clean and fresh despite its downbeat appearance, and the staff could not have been friendlier. I feel slightly awkward giving such nice people 2 stars, but despite their niceness, it isn't a hotel I'd visit again because although cheaper than others near the airport, when you factor in the cost and quality of food plus the taxi fare it is no cheaper, yet of poor quality.

Booked in for two nights with my two daughters,small attic room with velux window.three beds shoved together, We had to climb two flights of concrete stairs with our luggage,in the rain. Very old heater in the room had a sign saying not to adjust it would not work at all if we did. this place seems more like a youth hostel than a hotel.Staff unhelpful.

Wow, this is genuinely the worst place on the face of the earth. I went to check in and was sure it was the wrong place from the misleading photos of the place which make it look like it's not straight out of Chernobyl; sadly I wasn't wrong. "We put you on 1st floor no single women on ground floor because of rape". Wicked. I wasn't aware rapists couldn't climb stairs - I feel I right idiot now. When you walk to your room and notice the bedroom windows have metal shutters like a shop to stop intruders (the stairs stop the rapists) it's somewhat alarming. As much as I'm a fan of some modern art, the dead squashed bugs indented into the walls didn't spark any enthusiasm in me, moving past them into the bathroom I declined a shower due to the state of it deciding I'll live to not contract legionaries disease for another day. It was very handy having a plaster hold the batteries of the TV remote in place for when you inevitably get bitten by a rat. The electrics look like they'd been installed by a toddler during a tantrum. And then when the night is finally passed and people have stopped screaming (I heard actual screams all night) - it's time for breakfast. Which is fine if you like a sweaty lump of cheese, stale bread and some cereal from circa 1985.

Max 10min from the airport. Better to sleep here during warm part of the year as heater in the room doesn't work well (not only in my room). The infra red one in the bathroom is much better. Room was small but enough for one person. Door to the room directly from outside the building. Specific place but you are not requiring person, could be good for you.

This by far one of the worst hotel experience I have ever had. First, the moment I arrive to the hotel, I notice a sour stintch in the air. As one of the front desk personnel got a little closer, I notice it was an older gentlement that the smell was eluminating from. Second, their computer system didn't show my reservation and I had to contact Travelocity so that they could fax my reservation into them so they wouldn't charge me extra. After getting the room, I went to the room and notice an ordor in the room. It dust bunnies under the bed that I have taken pictures of as well as a bug on the extra blanket that I pulled from the cabinet. It was in November so it was a bit cold, but the heater on the wall pushing out enough heat to heat up a standing room shower. I was so tired that I laid there with no blanket, no heat, just the clothes I came in with in order to lay my head down. I awoke the next morning and notice that the curtains was sheer and anyone can see straight through it and I was on the ground level so anyone walking by the hotel can look in and see the entire room. It was hard to locate, the cab driver drove past it twice because the sign was hidden. I would say try the Sheraton that is connected to the hotel or stay at another hotel in the area, this one please bypass.
