pentahotel Brussels Airport, Machelen
Bad service!
Add €21 to total price paid as they charge that in name of parking which has absolutely no security or even shaded. They should really mention that it's a "paid" parking and not just mention parking in amenities! Staff is rude! they tell you that you are an idiot. WiFi sucks! very slow they ask you more money for better WiFi Rooms are small & clean.

Reception is under the disco balls.
Hotel was very cool design. Not being exposed to the penta brand in the US, I was very confused and somewhat intimidated to walk in with all my luggage into a bar with club music playing, a lounge and people playing pool. I looked all around for the reception desk and could not find it. After 5 minutes of looking I decided to ask the barista where reception was. She was it. That was the lobby. A bar with club music playing and people playing pool. I felt kind of stupid that I did not immediately get it because I was very tired from traveling and not exactly in the mood for clever hipster design. I wanted a room, not disco balls. Had I known beforehand what to expect, I would have been in a much better mood to appreciate the clever design. A lobby that is actually a hipster bar. In hindsight I would definitely stay again now that I know the scene.

Average hotel, not bad for a quick stay. Wifi extremely slow (the free option) Average cleanliness (room service even forgot my door unlocked open once) Caution: Airport shuttle is not operational throughout the day!

Good airport hotel
As other reviews mention, the room size is compact but clean and the bed comfortable. Also they have a free airport shuttle that departs as early as 04:30. Good hotel for one night near airport if you have an early flight. Good value for the cost

Good stay
The hotel was very clean and was comfortable. They even let us check in a little really for no extra charge. Only downside was that breakfast was really expensive.
