Van der Valk Hotel Nivelles - Sud - a disgrace for the Kingdom of Belgium

  • Published in Hotels

The rooms have had their best time. The curtains are dirty; everything seems mixed up.

The wi-fi didn't work either. There are no questions to ask here.

The bedding stinks of an indefinable odour that seems to be corrosive. The room is not clean. Currently, under reconstruction, it is dirty, and the business appears to have slipped from the management. The prices for a menu are correspondingly high, and the quality is open to dispute. Taste is known to vary.

If it is like the cold sausages on the buffet, which costs 15 euros, it is a disgrace for Belgium.

 

Guests are to blame, who else?

The staff could only explain the constant power failure, the humming generators behind the house with impertinence and cold-heartedness. Added to this was the personal displeasure that the guests complained.

The guest does not have to complain; he has to pay and keep his mouth shut. The question alone disturbed the course of the hotel rip-off.

Nobody wants to talk about front desk managers in this context.

Cheeky and impertinent one would call this representative of the hotel.

Why should guests shower? They do not need light either—especially electricity. The guests do not have to sleep in the hotel either.

Guests are also to blame if the hotel is converted in absolute chaos. The main thing is to make a quick Euro.

The ongoing operation was reflected in raw breakfast eggs and a cold buffet in the morning.

Two Arabic chambermaids quickly searched the luggage, maybe there was something useful in it, afterwards, they wanted to vacuum in the dark, without electricity.

We did not wait for an opinion from the Van der Valk Group for this article.

After all, it gave half of the overnight stay price back in deep contempt for the guests. One can only advise everyone not to visit the hotel.

Lost Places (1)

When after the war the economy in Europe picked up again, these beautiful exhibits that, with all the moss in the forest that now surrounds them in solitude, yet bear witness to the times in which they rendered valuable services to their users. It was years after the devastation of Europe.

 

 

Walking along the Gaula, through an almost fairy-tale forest, which, with this abundance of nature, can only be found in a few places in Europe, one is surprised to find there the last resting place of these industrial productions. Where golden eagles and salmon thrive, nature has reclaimed the actual vehicle. Rust seems to be the ravages of time.

Silent witnesses at the Midtre Gauldal in Trøndelag ( Middle Gaula in Trondheim)

The Volvo Viking was the export hit of the Swedes from 1951 onwards, built about 90,000 times and exported all over the world. Anyone who was in Africa in the 1980s saw the Vikings driving around everywhere.

Excellent performance, little diesel and indestructible technology from a time when trucks could carry up to 5 t payload. That was enough then. Reliability and practical use were the main focus of interest.

Hanomag was a German legend, produced, like Deutz or Klöckner, well-designed machines that found their way all over the world. This model was offered with a single fresh scoop, which was the hit in the 1960s when the production of this machine fossil was going on.

If you are interested in these vehicles as a collector or have a museum where the cars would fit in, please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.We would then try to establish contact, although the pictures of the wondrous artefacts from the past are inspiring even in this environment. The vehicles look like monuments and are intertwined with their surroundings.
