Ready to fly: overnight relaxation at ‘SKOJ’ Holiday Inn near Brussels Airport

Ever had to drag yourself to Brussels Airport at the crack of dawn or hop on an early train to catch a flight to your vacay spot? Kinda sucks, doesn’t it? Personally, I always end up feeling awkward and wiped out. To skip out on that tired-out travel vibe and grab your flight without the stress, I went ahead and checked out the Holiday Inn Airport hotel in Diegem for you guys.


Of course, there are hosts and hostesses ready to assist you with pleasure whenever needed. Simple and highly efficient, just the way I prefer it. With this surprising reception desk, you are automatically immersed in the SKOJ concept of this hotel.

SKOJ, Swedish for FUN

SKOJ represents FUN in Swedish, but when you break down the letters of this word, they carry an even deeper significance. The “S” stands for Surprising, clearly referring to the enjoyable manner of check-in and check-out.

Let’s continue with the “K” for Creative. For this, you should visit the bar and restaurant, which have been beautifully renovated. I’m certainly a big fan. Through the creative use of warm tones, materials rich in wood, and the integration of modern accents, you’ll immediately feel at home.

The Scandinavian designers have clearly let their creativity run wild here, and the result is excellent. The bar even features a Starbucks corner, while in the restaurant itself, you can indulge in local dishes that are also available for take-away. On the evening of our stay, we enjoyed delicious meals and filled our bellies to satisfaction.

A Scandinavian surprise

So what about the rooms? The designers at Holiday Inn have gone above and beyond to accommodate guests in an original and extremely comfortable manner for one or more nights. Here, too, great attention has been paid to the interior, with the cozy, modern Scandinavian look being prominently featured. A large and very comfortable bed, a fully equipped bathroom with bathrobes, a cozy seating area, air conditioning, a flat-screen TV with multimedia capabilities, a safe, and WiFi in the rooms and throughout the hotel are some of the details I want to emphasize here. Surprisingly – and here we return to the letter S of Surprising – is also the space of the rooms; with about 32 square meters, you certainly have enough space to feel at ease.

For the water enthusiasts among us who can’t wait to reach their destination, Holiday Inn has got you covered. The hotel features a heated indoor swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a steam room, and a sauna. After indulging in delightful meals at the restaurant, I effortlessly burn off the consumed calories in the health & leisure club, aptly named Joyful.

After a workout, I like to relax for a while, and for that, the outdoor terrace behind the restaurant is an ideal spot. Here, you’re truly immersed in nature, making you feel as though you’re not just a stone’s throw away from the airport, but rather somewhere in the south of France, especially when the weather cooperates… Ideal for kicking off your vacation. Ah, la vie est belle when you’re on holiday 🙂

All-inclusive Concept

I can assure you that a carefree night’s sleep before an early flight is truly rejuvenating. Freshly washed and packed, we are picked up in the early morning by one of the shuttle buses, which transport you to our national airport free of charge. These shuttle buses also run in the evenings. Your car stays cozy in the parking lot until you come to pick it up after your vacation, thanks to the Park & Stay Go 15 Day arrangement. We are completely ready for our holiday!

Good to know: at the Holiday Inn, business travelers are right at home. With a variety of facilities such as event spaces and cozy meeting lobbies, you’ll find everything you need. And for families, everything is taken care of too. The hotel is fully equipped for the little ones, with fold-out beds and rollaway cribs readily available. Your kids up to 17 years old can crash in your room free of charge. How convenient is that?
