Booked through Eurostar and got a brilliant last minute deal, was worried about the location but didn't need to be.
Easiest way to get to this hotel if arriving into Brussels Midi is by overground train to Place Luxembourg, they are quite frequent and takes about 20 minutes (going via the northern station).
To get to and from the centre, only a 30 minute walk, we got a bus which was easy and frequent, no, 95 starts just south-west of Grande Place (Beurs - on the main road itself), dropping off at the "Luxembourg square" just one street down from the hotel.
Check in was wonderful, the lady showed us on the map where to walk to for lunch time frites at Jourdan, she was pleasant to talk to about the wonderful beers of Belgium! As we were having a kids free weekend she ensured we had a nice room with a king bed!
Room was clean and tidy, bathroom well stocked.
Fridge was on the small side, with no complimentary bottled water (there's a small supermarket just down the road at the Luxembourg square).
Good sized TV with channels from all over the world.
Room was quiet and air con worked well.
We had breakfast included, I would not recommend it if you were paying extra as it is extremely expensive! Good variety, warm food. Staff could be a little more attentive to clearing dirty plates but didn't spoil the experience unlike the waffle machine that I really didn't get on with!
No issues on checking out, used luggage room for the last day with ease.
Wouldn't hesitate going back if the price was right.
