      The location is good, however the surrounding of the hotel was loud till midnight.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      breakfast very good, friendly staff, clean rooms

      location - noisy because it is opposite the train station, not in the town centre. Would recommend if you want to be close to the station if you are only staying for one or two nights.

      Very clean and spacious rooms and location was convenient to the train station. Hotel staff where very helpful - giving us maps etc.

      No airconditioning and window openned up right over the beer house below - so was noisy when we were trying to sleep

      The hotel was a great find. Very beautiful and clean. Breakfast was great and owner was great and helpful.

      The room was clean and quiet (our room was not facing the main street), even though close to the train station . The location was good with convenient transportation to the city center. The hotel was better than expected for 1-star hotel.

      There was no fridge and no hairdryer in the room. The walls were a little shabby at some points.

      The breakfast + 2 television screens in the family room

      There was no hair-dryer.

      Very good location for railway station. Good transport links to all areas of northern belgium.

    • Family with children

      location, opposite the railway station, and 2 rooms, 1 double bed + 1 singles

    • Couple

      location (don't be afraid of being close to the station, it happened to be a beautiful spot)

      Lots of mosquitos and no aircon

    • Couple
      8.8

      Big room for the price, nice shower with big and thick towells, excellent price and location. The hotel has a bar with 150 brands of beer at affordable prices.

      No safe on the room to store your valuables, need to use stairs to reach room (elevator only takes you half the way).

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Good location and great value. There's a 24 hr parking nearby as well. Make sure you get proper directions if driving - not the easiest place to navigate by car, but it's an ideal spot if traveling by train. The owners were very pleasant and friendly and our room was clean and comfortable.

      Heat, noise in room 420

      The staff was very friendly towards Americans. Great breakfast was included. Super-helpful staff even packed us a box lunch for the day we needed to leave early. This hotel is much nicer than the pictures on the web-site.

      WiFi internet connection although free, was only available in the hotel lobby.

    • Older travelers

      Loved having a pub with a fantastic beer selection right there! Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. We never heard the trains, and it was a very easy tram ride to the center. Nice neighborhood with bakery, grocery store, restaurants all next door.

      Parking could be difficult and expensive depending on when you are there. Sunday was free, but on Saturday we had to feed the machine twice. This may have been due to construction in the local area.

      No noise disturbances during the night.

      There were road works going on (obviously not during the C'mas hols) nearby which disrupted some of the tram routes that had to be diverted which resulted in a lot of inconvenience to tourists (most likely locals as well) trying to get from the Central Station area to the shopping/historical locations. In the reverse direction the trams were able to take the normal route. I know this was not the fault of the Castel hotel but I would not recommend it to anyone at the present time because of the disruption which I was told could last for two more years. If/when I go again I'd stay near the Centre unless I was assured the transport was working normally. Right opposite the main station the Hotel is ideally situated when the sevices are ok.
