The hotel team offered a good service, rooms are nice and quite big. The area is quiet, good restaurant close by in walking distance. Lots of parking space. Some shops close by. Would stay there again.

Came here for a 2 night break and fell in love with this unusual but comfortable hotel. Formerly a prison, the Lodge has been completely and compassionately renovated and works really well. Location isn't near hustle or bustle of city life....its relaxed yet sufficient with a Lidl, fast food and shops in a 5 minute walking distance. Lots of guests... More

The building is historical and has been modernized beautifully. Rooms are large with comfortable bed and high ceilings. Breakfast is tasty and of good quality. It's possible to walk to the hotel from the train station bit you walk through a dodgy area so better to take the taxi.

This hotel is actually very surprising. On approach we thought it was a joke, like we were being dumped in a slum. But once inside the hotel and you begin to appreciate it's practicality it really is amazing. The designers done a fantastic job converting an old abandoned prison into a very modern hotel. Suitable for anyone really. Paintings and... More

The staff at breakfast was very unfriendly and the people at the reception where of no help. Of course we were not allowed to speak with the manager to discuss our problem and solve it at the same moment. The only thing the receptionist could offer as a solution was to send a mail. As I refused she offered a... More

The charming, quirky hotel is located with a erstwhile correction facility in a suburb of Brussels with beautiful surroundings and canals closeby. The staff at the reception, especially Laura was great and very warm. The room I got was one of the bigger ones, there were bottles of complimentary water and bathroom amenities. While the hotel does not have a... More

Very well executed, intersting conversion of an old jail. Close to town centre, but very quiet in pleasant surroundings. Also close to Brussels airport. Very nice breakfast too. Hotel only let down by the smelly shower outlet.

Arrived at 3am due to a delayed inbound flight at Brussel. But there was still staff at the reception and had the opportunity to check in. The room was great, clean and comfortable. The wifi works well. Breakfast is complimentary and perfect adequate. Nice place to stay.

As an old jailhouse this was better than expected. The rooms were large, comfortable, with all the amenities you'd expect. For the price, I was happy. If someone had asked me to pay more I'd have been more critical. Service was slow, often having for someone to come to reception or the bar. They weren't continually staffed. Also, the fitness...

Booked in for surgery at nearby hospital and this hotel was part of the package. Lovely hotel with very helpful staff who are more than happy to go the extra mile for guests.
