My homeplace, Hasselt Belgium / Places I visited in Belgium

A renovated HasHotel in Hasselt. Check ✔.

HasHotel

Of the about 30 hotels that Hasselt has, I visited the renovated HasHotel on the small ring road in the center and 350m from the Grote Markt. On good luck’ I went in because I prefer not to make appointments and want to be received as spontaneously as possible.

The entrance was completely changed so I had to look for the reception. Through the ramp I got to the elevator and there Saskia came to my rescue. She guided me to the first floor, to the reception.
In the elevator I introduced myself as a travel blogger and said that I would like to check the renewed hotel on accessibility. Saskia turned out to be the person in charge of the hotel, so I immediately had the right person for me. Coincidence does not exist … 🙂

Their adapted room was free and Saskia was immediately willing to show it to me.

As soon as I entered, a ‘wow’ escaped me!
The room was very spacious, the colors very warm and there was only (low pile) carpet under the bed. Well done!

On the left there was a long undercarriage table/office room and in the middle there was a beautiful bed on legs. A hoist can be used all around under the bed. Ideal!

The transition to the very spacious bathroom was barrier-free. Another plus! The walk-in shower has a plenty of space.

Here I gave the tip to provide a shelf, and a chair with a non-slip mat as well.
The toilet was also placed in such a way that there was enough space to do a transfer. The brackets were ordered, but due to corona conditions there was a delay here.

It felt very pleasant to notice how Saskia was really open to my advice and tips.

The terrace is not accessible due to a stair step, but in my opinion the space in the room and bathroom really made everything okay!

The shortest parking is the underground TT-Parking, 50m around the corner, with a drive-in height of 185cm. There are 3 blue parking lots in the Capucienenstraat at 210m where you can park for free with a blue card or a large (free) parking lot at 1.3km walking distance.

Conclusion.

I was very kindly welcomed by Saskia and the coffee from the store afterwards was also very tasty! 🙂
I hope they will also advertise this room on their website and Facebook because it is really recommended if you want to visit Hasselt as a roller!

Thanks to Saskia Beckers for the head image.

Loving my life and surrounding myself with friends and positive people. My goal is trying to make the world more aware of accessibility for wheelchair users on holidays and other leisure activities.
