Reviewed 5 April 2014

The space is very good - nice, large apartment pleasantly decorated and well kitted out - kitchen not bad on utensils (though the bigger frying pan had a convex base and was unusable), nice sitting area, dining table, etc.

Service is minimal, which is fine - your rubbish is emptied and your bed is made. The rest is down to you, including washing up. This may be the root of a hygiene issue as 2-3 insects is 2-3 more than I would want to see in my apartment, but the place was not "crawling".

The lobby area is sort of institutional - looks and feels like a local government office. Friendly enough, informal. The lobby is often closed and the small sitting area that connects to it is used as a communal living room by some of the residents. All OK, though the informality and lack of service do not sit that well with prices that are not all that low.

So, functional,convenient,useful - a good place to sleep but not to feel spoilt.

Very good place to stay, it's very quiet and appropriately equipped. Bear in mind that I stayed in a small Studio. You your kitchen and everything else to make yourself a decent meal.
Cleaning is average, they only clean your room on a certain day, and the rest of the week they only clean the basics, on weekends they don't clean at all.
If you want to do your own laundry, you have a laundry room at the basement level.
Everything else was quite good, you have a lot of restaurants and places to eat.
Close to supermarkets and also avenue Louise which is great.
At night it's VERY quiet, if you want a peaceful night, this is the place to stay.
WiFi connetion it's included in the your room, which is great, but ONLY limited to one device, if you try to connect another thing then they revoke your connection privileges and they charge you, which is not that great.

Overall, VERY good place to stay. Very recommended.

Room Tip: I was on the third floor, of the side of the street. Very good location.

I have been in Brussels during two months and I have been accomodated in A-XL Flathotel. I strongly recommend it. It is good located and you will not hear noice. It is not expensive and most of the services are included in the price. Moreover, the staff is really nice and helps you a lot with the problems you may have.

It is not a luxurious appartment but I would describe it as correct and confortable. If you want to have a nice stay in Brussels it is a good option.

I would like to express my appreciation for the quality of service you offered during the days of my stay at the AXL Flathotel. I decided for you because of the remarkable conditions and a wonderful location of the hotel near the European Parliament.
I enjoyed the peace and quiet I needed, offered in all the facilities of your hotel. This definitely added to the excellent service of the staff, allowed me to focus on the traineeship in the European institution.

I will definitely recommend your hotel to colleagues and friends, and I’m sure that if I back in Brussels I'll choose the same hotel.

For Euros 110 I got a small apartment, with kitchen, living and bed. Really quiet: no traffic noise at all. Wonderful night's sleep. Lots of room to work. Pretty central location, with plenty of nice cafes within 10 minutes walk. Staff friendly.

Could you ask for more? If I had to come to Brussels for a few days' work, this would be top of my list.

Room Tip: Get a room looking onto the garden

This flat hotel is very nice and well located.
I enjoyed staying for more than one month, the duration of a project.

I would ask for an improvement of INTERNET CONNECTION -- its really AWFUL and makes no sense to provide this POS in this age of communcations. It's limited to 50KB/s per room and they provide access to just one device!! You pay extra for more devices in the WiFi (you can cheat, but yeah, this sucks). Ridiculous.
I would also ask for more cleaning, every day. They missed a lot of days.

Other than that, it's great if you can live without a stow, with the crappy internet and pay a ton of money for a SHORT duration stay. If you intend to stay longer, don't go with their chit chat. Find an apartment/studio to share or rent.

The best of the hotel for me was the attention of the man at the reception desk that help me to find the apartment, very nice person. Be careful if you come late reception will be closed but they give you the telephone of a person.

My apartment was big, decoration was not the best for me but it is clean and ok. And you have a kitchen.

If you want a quiet room ask for an apartment on the block not direct beside the school or you will be wake up by the children in the morning.

The walls are not really thick but it is realtive ok as people there is quiet.

They have parking.

Internet is fine in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment not near the school
