BethanyPoulter Friends getaway - 14/07/2017
« Utterly horrendous »

Never have I or my friends been so appalled! We checked in as normal when we arrived and were given our first room, when we went into the room we found dead flies covering the whole room! On the beds, in the showers, in the sink and all over the floor! Skirting boards were thick with muck as well as the plug holes! We went to the reception where the man was very understanding and gave us another room. We went into the next room to find more flies everywhere in the room again, this time we were kindly greeted with blood on the floor also!! We were disgusted and found an alternative hotel to stay in! As for the customer service team that was even more of a joke! Almost 2 hours spent on the phone to get absolutely no where with anybody! Only lied to! The final night of our 2 week road trip and it was just horrendous! I have no intention to ever Stay in an ibis again never mind this particular one!!

« Strange Industrail Neighbourhood »

This is an Strange Industrail Neighbourhood which is very close to the audi factory . Even not considered Brussels anymore. False advertisement about closeness to brussels . You can not even use the brussels card for transporting here . worst small rooms and even worst towels yet why are they charging car parking for their own parking place? strange iron doors , if you are travellig with childeen definately this is not suitable according to my opinion .

« Charged extra money for staying a legitimate night »

Originally I had booked my stay at Ibis Budget for two nights (29th and 30th December). Then I sent an email requesting an extension of two more nights. On the 30th Dec night when I arrived at the hotel, the receptionist (who signed in my original receipt) took a cash payment of Eur 73.20 for securing the same room for two more nights. He (whose name was probably Khalid - from what I could make out of his signature) said that he could not print at that time and therefore signed on the original receipt that was issued for the first two nights. On 1st Jan, when I returned to the hotel, I found to my shock and dismay that I could not enter my room. Upon enquiring with the then receptionist (different person) I found out that the previous receptionist (who had signed on the original receipt) had not entered my stay on the 1st Jan night on the system. Therefore I had to make an extra credit card payment of Eur 50.20 to secure the same room for 1st Jan night. This thus caused unnecessary confusion and also discomfort to me as I had to pay more than what I think I needed to do. Despite contacting the hotel management, they still haven't even bothered acknowledging receipt of the email. This is almost like daylight robbery!

« Another good Accor-experience »

Ibis Budget Ruisbroek was another good Ibis experience for me an my familie. However, there were things that could be improved like: - Payment for the car park. During my stays in Ibis Budget hotel in the UK, Germany, Belgium and Holland, this was the first Ibis budget, where I had to pay for the car park. Had the space been limited, it would have been okay, but during our stay roughly only half of the places were used. - The breakfast buffet wasn't as varied as in Ibis Budget Zaandam, which we came from. - One morning there was no light in the escalator. We mentioned this to the reception, who ackknowledged our input, but the next morning - when we left - it was still not working. It didn't bother us, but we experienced other guest who turned around and took the stairs, when they found out that there was no light in the escalator. On the pro was the more varied assortment in the 'shop' than in a vending mashine.

« Still ok, but maintenance required »

in particular a very efficient and friendly night receptionist, and a very acceptable price / quality ratio. Parking availability present, although many customers use 2 places in stead of placing their car on one of the provided places. The room I used on the second floor had problems with light switch and was smelling bad to the sink.

« A great place to stay »

Situated in a quiet residential area, not for from the motorway, I found this Ibis budget hotel the perfect place for me. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were cleaned and serviced every day. Dirty towels replaced daily. The buffet breakfast had a good selection of cold food to eat. About a 5 minute walk from Ruisbroek station which is served by 2 trains an hour from Brussels Midi. Some shops nearby and a petrol station with a shop is also quite close by. The only room for improvement I would say is some hand soap in the room would be nice. If I returned to Brussels, I'll certainly stay here again.

« a good hotel »

Seems to be far from Gare du Midi but easy to acces, even with bus 50,for the tourists without car; a clean hotel with good prices, good and friendly staff. Some rooms are smaller, but enough to rest after a long walk in Brussels.

« Ideally placed to visit Waterloo »

This hotel was easy to find from the Brussels Ring. We had a pleasant room-big enough, and an adequate, though not inspiring breakfast. Parking is charged per 12 hours. A pleasant area but few places to eat.

« Good stay with fair price »

Stayed with my wife for one week, check-in was good with very friendly staff. Asked for a room to the back of the hotel to have less noise, we have got the last room of the corridor. Room was clean as also bed sheets and shower towels, which is a characteristic from the Ibis brand; clean and presentable room. Hotel breakfast with a good selection: 3 types of cereal, yougurt, 5 types of bread, cheese, ham, fruits, cofee, hot chocolate and 2 types of juice. But I think the fair price for the hotel breakfast should be 6 euros (instead of 7.5 euros). Hotel facilities were good, the room was new and furniture was ok. The mattress was a bit too soft, it should be an semi-orthopedic one; not too soft and not too hard. One cons was the size of the room at Ibis Ruisbroek, I found it smaller than the other Ibis Budget brands that I have stayed at (Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Porto Alegre, Barueri, Lisboa, Amsterdam). Ruisbroek train station is within 5 min. walking distance, from there you get the train to almost anywhere. There is also bus service to Brussel-Zuid. Even adding the transport fare into account, you will spend less at Ibis Ruisbroek for sure. Nearby facilities: there is a gas station (good breakfast for 4 euros) and a carrefour express (small grocery store, breakfast for 3 euros) one block away from the hotel that can provide some good refreshments. On Ruisbroek square there is an Italian restaurant which has a good pizza and pasta, there is a wednesday and thursday sale with any pizza for 5 euros, don't miss it! It's a very calm neighbourhood at Ruisbroek where shops close early and life follows the local schedule. We enjoyed a lot our stay at Ibis Ruisbroek. Highly recommended, will surelly come back when returning to Brussels.

« Good hotel but be aware parking charges »

Good hotel near train station with regular trains to Brussels. However the car parking charges are not displayed on the website (why not ?!!) and you only discover it is paid parking on arrival at the hotel. The staff pointed out that if you pointed your mouse at the 'P' parking icon on the website it does pop up as 'chargeable', so I expect they get this comment frequently. If you are staying for more than one night the parking is really inconvenient as you have to go to reception and pay every time you want to take your car out. The clock then starts again when you return and is charged in 12 hours blocks, which can make it expensive if staying for a few days. Would be better if the parking charge was for the whole duration of your stay.

« Great budget hotel that's near Brussels »

Pros: Good price and near Rubriek train station (400m away). Relatively high frequency of train service and inexpensive transport. Rooms were clean and satisfactory. Wifi was strong and staff were friendly. No cons. I will stay here again when i return to Brussels in future.

« E Jones »

We were very impressed with the hotel, the staff, but disappointed about having to pay for car parking. We also found that the details about the distance in to Brussells was misleading on line when we were making all four of our hotel bookings on this currentbreak as we paid 30 euros each way for a half an hour taxi run where we were expecting to be about 15 mins. We had to make this journey as we had made plans to meet friends there from the south of Belgium. We would certainly not have made this trip had it not been for that reason even though Brussels was a fantastic place it was an expensive journey. We actually sat outside the Novhotel and had glass of wine together and discussed the benefit of being in the centre even though prices are more expensive you have no transport costs which when you away you have to make these journeys.

Dear Elaine, many thanks for your comments, you have different options to reach the city center, the taxicab is not the cheapest one but by train it takes 11 minutes and costs a few euros. My best regards.

« Dirty »

The floor in the room was really dirty and smell really bad. They should clean it. I also cannot understand why do they do to pay for parking in a place which is not near of the city. We have been in other cities and these hotels allowed to you to park for free.

Dear Alex, thank you for your comments, the rooms, including the floor are clent every day, I'm sorry if it was not perfect in your room. We consider the parking as a service, that's why it is not free of charge. My best regards.

« hotel not in Brussels,but in the countryside »

First of all, the address given on the site is totally incorrect. When we got there, we stopped in front of a vegetable store whose owner started laughing at me for being 7,5 km away from the real address.We went to an Ibis Hotel and we got the right address and all the necessary information for our hotel's location: Ruisbroek,village Sint...You have to call before to get all this info. Hotel is nice. The stuff very nice. Parking:8 euros a day. Bus 50 which takes you to the central station where you can take metro no 6 to reach Atomium. From Atomium No 6 back for The European Parliament (Throne station) and then on foot you can go to the old center in 20 min. In Atomium we can only see pictures about its construction and some lights...very expensive and not worth it. The rest is free

Dear 90traveller, rest assured that the adress indicated on our site is correct, we often check the other sites than Accor or ibis budget but it seems that one of those is providing a wrong information. Regards.

« It seems like to be in a motorhome near the town »

To be in an Íbis Budget seems like to be in a motorhome, not only for room decoration but also by the location, most of them are located outside the city. Clean and practical features fair price which they charge.
