Always nice and easy to stay at Ibis Aalst Centrum

ok stay but noisy rooms

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Chantal Business - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stay was ok for 1 night, but not more. Only thing is that the rooms at the side of the highway, you can hear everything and cars driving up dan down 24/7. Did not had a good night rest because you hear everything from outside in the rooms. Breakfast was good, location was good.

Dear Chantal, Thank you for your review. It's great to know that you found our location convenient and enjoyed our tasty breakfast buffet. We, however, regret that you were disturbed, we encourage our guests to let us know of any issues while on-site so that we can find an immediate solution, we would have happily found you a quieter room depending on availability. We all hope to be able to welcome you again. Best wishes, Kenneth Claerbout, General Manager

We ordered one of the biggest rooms which turned out to have a slanted roof so in fact wasn’t so big. Neither of the children’s beds were made when we arrived. No shower caps in the room.

The staff was fine and so was the room but the TV was not working (had a green screen for all channels and the sound was intermittent) and when taking a shower the water did not stay at the same temperature and changed from cold, luke warm, hot without me adjusting the faucet and I could not get it to stay at a normal temperature... I did spend much time in the room so I did not contact the hotel staff about these issues so my own fault for not getting them taken care of during my stay but I figure maybe you'd like to know.

The room was clean if not a little basic. The wardrobe was some strange half and half box attached to the wall and there were no tea or coffee making facilities. The manager assured me that the bar was 24/7 to make up for the fact there is no such facility. Whilst a 24/7 bar is handy if you want to pay too much for drinks at £60 a night I would expect to be able to make my own tea and coffee. The hotel was also well insulated from noise from the outside but alas not so much from the inside as I was awoken many times by slamming doors in the early hours. The staff were friendly, the location is excellent for travelling and the reception being always open is also great and I appreciate 12pm checkouts. I would just expect slightly more from a hotel in this price bracket.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. We are pleased to know that you appreciated our quality service and convenient location. As part of Ibis standards, tea/coffee making facilities are not available in the rooms; we regret any inconvenience caused. Please do not hesitate to inform us of any issues you may encounter, so that a room more suited to your requirements can be found, subject to availability. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back on a future occasion and we wish you all the best for the festive season. Kind regards, Kenneth Claerbout, General Manager

Fantastic Staff but way over priced

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

422CYG Business - 07/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

So on a positive point the staff were fantastic. I stay in a lot of Accor Hotels and have to say this was way overpriced approx £127 per night. (despite the fact the sign outside stayed at 69 Euro for the whole of my 2 night stay) That rate was apparently a preferred member price so goodness knows what it would have been otherwise. Room was ok, nothing to write home about and lacking any tea and coffee making facilities. Was it worth £127 per night not even close. Tiny TV, basic shower, basic furniture set up etc. Other than the room and the bar/restruant there are no other facilities. Be aware if you don't have a car and are looking to travel here from Brussels it's not the easiest of places to get too. Food was pretty good and as I said in the title super helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast starts super early which is a plus. Truth is at this price I woudn't stay again as there are lots of other options in the area that offer far more for your money in terms of facilities.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review about your recent stay. We truly value all feedback and we are sorry that you were not entirely satisfied with your recent experience. As part of Ibis standard, tea/coffee making facilities are not available in the rooms, however hot and cold drinks can be purchased 24/7 in the hotel bar you are welcome to take them to your room. We do work with flexible tariffs and prices depend on demand and can be higher when there are events in the area. The best available rates can be found on our website Ibis.com. We are very happy to hear of the impact our team members had on your experience, it is very rewarding and encourages us to constantly improve our performance. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back on a future occasion. Best wishes, Kenneth Claerbout, General Manager

Was aware of standard conditions of ibis so was not expecting anything special. Found unfortunately room in very poor condition with WiFi which did not work for all evening (only explanation received was that there were too many visitors in the bar)

Dear Guest, We would like to thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay. We are so sorry for the inconvenience caused during your stay.

The check-in is perfect as the fast check-out. A very nice personnel does the maximum to enjoy your Journey. A good adress in the west of Brussels. A quite night and a fresh orange juice at the breakfast.

We're so pleased everything met your expectations, and we're delighted you were able to make the most of our tasty breakfast buffet - an ideal way to help start the day.

Excellent breakfast, quiet room, tap water smelled funny, air conditioning setting made the room hotter

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to answer our customer satisfaction survey. We are glad to know you enjoyed our tasty breakfast and had a great night's sleep. We are however sorry to hear of the issues which you faced with the air conditioning in your room and regret that you had not made us aware of this while on-site; as our maintenance team would have happily intervened and made your stay with us more comfortable.

gordonchapple Solo travel - 07/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

I went to the dining room for a meal and sat there for quite some time and was totally ignored, and so I left. I asked for an early morning call and the reason I did not receive was that the telephone in my room did not work. As a result I missed the ferry I was aiming for and had to take a later one. Would not recommend it if you want a decent service.

Dear Guest, We thank you for taking the time to share this valuable review which helps us to keep improving. We are sorry that your recent stay at our hotel didn't meet your expectations and for the apparent shortcomings in our service. Please accept our sincere apologies. We will be checking the telephone in your room immediately, as it is an automatic service we were not aware of the malfunction. We have recently introduced a new 'living room' restaurant system whereby our guests may also use the lobby or bar to have a drink or a meal and can only assume our team members were very busy and apologise once again for the delay in attending to your needs. Rest assured we will be addressing this with our team and carry out further training. We hope you will give us another opportunity to welcome you for a more enjoyable stay in the future. Best regards, Kenneth Claerbout, General Manager

thomash19472016 Couples - 11/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

The room was quiet and since we paid for the family room the size was enjoyable. The only small problem was the bathroom smell wasn't pleasant on arrival. But we had a small spray bottle for smells which made the smell much better plus we added water the the shower and sink drains.

Dear Thomash19472016, We would like to thank you for your review. It’s rewarding to read that your room ideal for your needs. However we are sorry for the unpleasant odour, we wish you had informed us during your stay. Your remarks have been noted. We look forward to seeing you again on a future occasion.

I was driving from Germany back to the UK and chose this hotel for my stopover Aalst is a really nice little town and the hotel was great for me not far from the motorway and close to the town. The hotel is in a nice quiet location and the rooms are the good Ibis standard.

Geoffrey N Solo travel - 13/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

I was pleased with the situation of the hotel just off the E40 m-way, and it was perfectly situated for my cycling rendezvous at Herzele on the Sunday morning. I received a warm welcome on arrival. My room was very spacious and at the back of the hotel, so it was calm and, coupled with the comfortable bed, I had a good night's sleep. I used the underground parking at night (paying). Good choice of food at breakfast and with service starting at 6.30 a.m. it suited me perfectly. Fast check-in and check-out worked well.

Dear Jethronunn, Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable review. We are glad that you had a pleasant stay with us and that the room met was to your liking. Thank you for appreciating our location, our team, our parking facility and our breakfast. We understand how important an excellent night’s rest is for our guests and are pleased we were able to meet your expectations. We are indeed located in the heart of the city. The acknowledgement of the quality of service on the part of a recent guest is always appreciated and encourages us to constantly improve our performance. It’s great to know we were able to tempt your taste buds with the wide selection on offer on our breakfast buffet. We are happy that all the facilities were to your satisfaction. We look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, Kenneth Claerbout, General Manager
