“It is what you can see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

It is cheap, very well located and not so fancy. The room was not very big, but it was clean. It is what it promised. You have a shopping street 2 minutes walking which you can find all kinds of shops and supermarkets.

The hotel is very centrally located, close to two metro stops (Louise, Port de Namur) and an easy walk away from the Avenue Louise shopping district.

The room was very basic and a little cramped, however it was clean and functional. The hotel could certainly use a bit of renovation. The WiFi service was a little patchy in our room (at the end of a corridor), but was fine elsewhere in the hotel.

The breakfast was (again) basic but functional, served in a communal canteen near the lobby. The hotel does not have a restaurant, however there are plenty of options nearby (I recommend Les Brassins, an excellent café/restaurant around the corner).

For the price, Sun Hotel represents good value. Very basic, but clean and well located.

I spent one night in the hotel because of late night meetings one day followed by early morning meetings the next morning (am a commuter in Belgium, but it's about 2 hours travel one way, so sometimes it is handy to sleep over).

I choose this hotel because of the price. The single room had a 1,20 m bed, a good shower, a small table, a window. Breakfast (5€ extra) is good value.

I will not return to this hotel for work reasons as there were loud guests in the corridors who woke me too often (the whole point of getting some rest between work days got lost this way), but it is an OK place for young travellers who want to visit Brussels.

It's well located for shopping (Avenue Louise, Sablon, Marolles are 10 minutes away) and for a visit in Matonge, the Congolese neighbourhood.

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!

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
