“Average cheap hotel room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

Cheap accommodation for a four bed private room with ensuite. Simple design, nothing special, could do with a bit of renovations (eg bathroom door almost falling off, paint not the greatest). Spacious room, small bathroom (especially shower), but still sufficient. The room was very clean, and was kept that way. New towels and shampoo everyday, the cleaning staff were lovely. Unsure as to whether the kitchen was for public or private use, we presumed public as its accessible from the breakfast room and downstairs toilets...although apparently it's a private kitchen!
We arrived early in the morning after a long bus trip, and we're luckily granted an early check in, which helped us with our much needed sleep!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

This place is new, but it kind of had the feel that it was built by someone's brother and not an official contractor. Edges were unfinished, some tiles not grouted, none of the doors matched up quite right. Because my door didn't fit, light poured in all night and there are no blackout curtains which made sleeping quite difficult. Also there is a lot of construction in the area which awoke me at 6am every morning. There is no A/C, so I needed to sleep with the windows open.
I extended my stay because of changes in my travel itinerary and on the day I was originally going to check out, I intended to ask if they needed me to pay now for the first days or not, but no one was at the front desk. When I returned, the front desk employee got kind of confrontational with me about paying for the nights I had stayed so far. It seemed unnecessary since I was completely fine with this and made me quite uncomfortable. The location is good, near Louise Street and the metro station Naamespoort, but I would see if I could stay somewhere else next time since I left the place quite sleep deprived.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of building to minimize street and construction noise

Great value hotel, 20 mins walk down to lower town. Rooms clean and newly refurbished but obviously done on a shoe string (Ikea furniture, toilet roll holder coming out of wall) but really very nice for the price.

The hotel itself is brand new and very comfortable, the breakfast is copious and the staff is very helpful. The main drawback is that almost every building on the street are under rehabilitation. It is very convenient to the Porte de Namur metro station. Once out of the street the neigbourhood is good and only a few 100 meters from Avenue de la Toison d'Or and Avenue Louise. it is a great value for the price if you do not mind the constructions on the street.

My daughter just called me last night from this hotel. She is a 21 year old student who is completing a semester abroad in Paris. She and a few other students booked this hotel because they are students and trying to conserve money. WELL, I told her to look for bedbugs. The phone call came in....room infested with bedbugs. To make matters worse, the man at the front desk was not very nice and WOULD NOT refund their money back. Talk about taking advantage. They left the hotel.....STAY AWAY!

Room Tip: don't choose this hotel!

I booked this hotel at the last moment as it was the only one available at a reasonable price.
The price was certainly above a "fair value", but it was a last-minute booking.
The road leading to the hotel was unlit and I certainly did not feel comfortable walking the approx 150 metres to the hotel. There were also some "unsavoury characters" hanging around.
The hotel appeared clean and certainly better than a lot of the budget hotels around Brussels city centre. The room also appeared clean and I had a good general impression, despite the inflated price. The local area had a few restaurants and bars, although not a good selection. It is close to a metro line, so at least the location is convenient.
Within a few hours of checking out, I noticed several swellings on my arms & legs. They were bed-bug bites and they must have happened in the hotel overnight. Based on this, I would never go back to this hotel, which is a pity, as it was otherwise of a reasonable standard.

  • Liked — it appeared clean and had good door security
  • Disliked — bed-bugs, and the alley leading to it had no lighting
