TravelPod Member ReviewsVan der Valk Brussels Airport Diegem
When we arrived at Van der Valk Brussels Airport they gave us an upgraded room, instead of the room we made the reservation for. Really cool, with a big soft bed and a rain shower. The dinner and breakfast in the restaurant where good. And the shuttle bus to the airport is very convienient.
