“Useful small hotel, cheap and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2010

Nothing special but it does the job. Breakfast is good, rooms are small but quiet. Useful location, you can walk down Avenue Louise to the city centre. Couple of good restaurants in the same street which saves having to make a big effort to go out.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2009

I stayed at the Capital for 2 nights and chose the hotel purely for the location as I was attending meetings just down the road from it. Despite the location i was still late for my meeting on the 2nd day as check out took 20 minutes. A chaotic queue, broken computer but at least an apology.

The room was clean but very basic, small with 2 small beds and cramped plastic bathroom. I spent little time in the room as i was busy with work - my rating would have been a 1 if not.

On the positive side the breakfast was fine and the hotel is handy for the tram into town.

The rooms are tiny and shabby. The bathroom is very small. I could not close the door of the shower, so I flooded the bathroom floor. The spiral mattress was just terrible. The breakfast was reasonable.

Internet is available, but it's 17 euro for 24 hours. Quite expensive.

I do not recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the Capital on business and I thought from the room rate it would be a suitable hotel. How wrong I was!

The Louise district is quite nice but it deteriorates the closer you get to the hotel.

The room is tiny, even by UK standards (If you're from the USA, forget it), in a poor state of repair and the bathroom is basically a cupboard with an MDF door. There is no restaurant apart from the breakfast buffet which itself is basic.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for the Ritz or Hilton, a Travel Inn or Holiday Inn express would do just fine, I just expected more due to the room rate than a tiny shabby room in a shabby hotel miles from the centre of Brussels and the nearest Metro station is over a mile away.

The good thing was that the room was clean although the doors and furniture was all chipped which made it look dirty.

We have recently spent an uncomfortable night in a dreary room on the top floor of this hotel. Having come from a beautiful few days in Bruges staying at a lovely hotel but paying only a few pounds more, to say we were disappointed was an understatement!! The room was pokey and very poorly furnished and the bathroom was old fashioned and dingy. We mentioned our concerns to reception but no effort was made to improve things. Definitely not to be recommended!!

I stayed at Hotel Capital with some colleagues, during a business trip, when more central hotels were fully booked. You need a tram to the nearest underground station. My room was really small, but clean. There was no central heating but an electric heater that you switch on and off, so I guess it may be cold in a less favourable season. Other rooms were larger and better equipped. Breakfast was fairly basic, with yoghurts, orange juice, boiled eggs, bread and jam, with coffee out of thermos and no fesh brew or espresso available. The staff was very nice and pluringual. I would say that one could expect something more at €98 per night, still the hotel is adequate.

Got a room mid-week for under €75 including breakfast. Helpful & friendly staff. Room was basic but comfortable and free of noise from outside the hotel - small tv, mini-bar only on request but no self make tea/coffee facilities in room.

The continental breakfast was included - very nice range & presentation that was just as good as many 4 or 5 star hotels - served in bright airy room with view over small gardens.

Location great for commuting across Brussels as 3 minutes walk to major bus & tram routes on Avenue Louise.

If you mainly want your room to sleep & freshen up this is incredible value.

I stayed one night and had to cancel second night of my stay the next morning, they made no fuss about it and did not want any payment for the missed night.

Highly recommended, I will stay there again.
