    Near center.

    Very noisy hotel. I heard everything from the corridor. Radiator in my room didn't work, so in the morning it was very cold. Very rough personal at the reception. Not good really.

    Fabulous

    At first I would like to say, that it's not only hotel's fault, we should be more carefull ourselves next time BUT: we asked manager to book a taxi for us to an airport (we had to be there at 5 a.m.). and he booked it, and taxi arrived and took us to an airport... but it wasn't the airport, wich we were need, it was wrong one!!! And we had to take another one taxi to get to right airport and we paid 176 (!!!) euro for this trip and fortunately arrived there in time! And the second driver said to us that there are 7(!!!!) airports around Brussels and hotel manager had to clarify wich one we were need at first before booking a taxi for us. Thats it.

    Exceptional

    Nice clean and comfortable modern rooms with a touch of 'history' in the ceilings as this hotel is situated in a classic building. We booked 6 rooms as we were going to work in Brussels with our team. We needed extra space and the hotel was very kind to offer us their conference room to set up our 'studio'.

    Fabulous

    I think it is a nice hotel - staff are fine and the rooms are clean and functional - a decent size too. Breakfast was fine, check-in and check-out are reasonaly timed. I would stay there again and it has a bit of character - unlike the chain hotels.

    I think these days all hotels need to provide free room based internrt access. Therefore I would have to say that the lack of this let the hotel down.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel is great. My room was clean but very simple. Unfortunately

    I got a room in the building opposite of the hotel. The corridor is not nice there. The drape curtain was not working so there was too much light in the morning

    Proximity ot business district

    Very poor value for money

    Very good

    Good location near to tube station, local bars restaurants in easy walking distance, 15 min walk to Grand Place. Ideal for a short break, continental breakfast ok.

    Located in a very quiet area of a night when we stayed mid week, for night life you need to get into the Grand Place area.There are plenty of local bars / Bistros around the Hotel but mainly busy during the day, we were there Feb 14th and most Restaurants were empty in the evening. Rooms on the small side, however would stay here again up to 3 nights max, suited us. You need to walk from here in my opinion because although the Trams & tube are close they are crowded of a day and not nice to travel on especially after dark.

    Fabulous

    The hotel had a good price and good location. Room was convenient and nice. Breakfast was good, but no warm dishes or fish, only baguette, ham, cheese, jam, cereals, croissant, cofee, tea and orange juice. Free wi-fi.

    TV was almost at the ceiling, no TV channels in English.

    The shower was not great. The door was broken and the pressure was very slow.

    Very good

    My window was on the road side but you can not hear the cars outside. Breakfast was good. You have enough choices. The dining room was clean. The location was good. It's just a two minutes walk from the metro station (Madou). Friendly staff, specially during breakfast.

    It's quite from outside but when there where people on the hall you can hear them talking, laughing... Which is very strange ! When I came in my room it was a bit stinky (they should open the window for a while before their guest arrives)
