“Secret Gem”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

I stayed here for two nights attending some job interviews and really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the tasty breakfast and the quiet room with a comfortable bed. Its situated in a quiet backstreet but very close to a whole host of designer shops, nice restaurants and a cracking Irish bar. The staff could not have been more helpful and I would certainly go there again.

On the down side, I suspect is quirky style would not suit everyone and the rooms are quite small but its got a good finish to the décor (albeit slightly Austin Powers). It doesn't have ac and it was roasting hot for the whole time I was there, but they did provide a fan which m,ore that countered the heat.

Room Tip: If you need to work, try to get a room with a bigger desk area as some have only a very small side t...

The hotel is a small hotel full of charm. The room was cozy, fun and comfortable. Breakfast is nice. Staff is great.
It is located near one of the most luxurious shopping streets of Brussels, but it is not near the city center. Nevertheless, you can easily catch the underground or tram to the center (just some steps away from the hotel). If you like walking and the weather is nice, you can walk to the center (about 15-20 minutes and you can stroll through some of Brussels attractions).
I would definitely stay here again.

Although this hotel is being described as boutique for me it had an almost youth hostel type feel to it. The decor is quirky but not particularly great quality up close and the retro stuff gets a bit clichéd after a while. We arrived in our room to find a big piece of hair, like someone's discarded hair extension floating in the toilet, it was a bit disgusting. There were also too large shaggy cushions on the bed and a shaggy carpet which for me is not very hygienic in a hotel room. We only stayed for one night which is just as well as there were no hangers, wardrobe or storage space, just a few shelves and a useless retro cabinet. The bathroom was very small and the shower is tiny. The safe was also on the flooor under a shelf and pretty awkward to get to. The breakfast was good, fresh and tasty but overall for the price paid I think this was bad value for money. I hadn't stayed in this area of Brussels before. For shopping it is good but for nightlife it was pretty sleepy and I was there on a Saturday night.

Dear Sir,
reading your comment we are wondering if you have quoted the right hotel.
The Vintage is everything but not hygenic, there is enough storage space in all rooms,
The location is right in the middle of Brussels night life, only a few minutes from top bars, restaurant and nightclubs.
Finally, if carpet was not something for you, please note we also have rooms without carpet, but with a superb woodfloor.

Loved staying here although it was a couple of stops away from town centre. Everything about the hotel is full of character and super clean! Staff were nice and friendly, too. Having breakfast has a home-like feeling to it. Worth exploring.

Vintage is such a great little hotel with a funky look! I booked it on a whim while visiting for a weekend away from Paris. It is in a great location surrounded by shops, cafes and restaurants. The staff as well were very pleasant, especially Darcy (hopefully I got that right). I also had my friends over for coffee before I went exploring and they loved it so much, one of them reserved a room for a night. I'd definitely book again when I return to Bruxelles. Even if you're staying at another hotel, go take a walk by and even see the lobby. It has a nice feel inside and out!

Let's start with the best thing of this hotel; the breakfast. Breakfast is served between 7 and 10.30 in the morning and it's more then complete. Fresh and healthy food which is served in the kitchen. Almost feels like home.

The employees of the hotel are friendly and can help you out with a map and some direction's. The room is in 70's style and matches the name of the hotel. We had a room at the back of the hotel. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Bathroom is ok.

Unfortunately we did not manage to lower the heater in the room so it was pretty warm during the night. It would be good it the heater could be switched off separately in each room instead of being controlled centrally. Or maybe we just couldn't find the switch.

Positives
Welcome at hotel was warm and friendly and it was easy to find.
The breakfast was nice and coffee great.
Room was clean and the shower hot.

Negatives
The halls and stairs have black carpet and the lighting is not that effective.
I don't think that shagpile carpet is particularly hygienic in a hotel setting.
My room was in the attic and felt claustrophobic and was very noisy due to high winds that night. The lighting in the room could have been better too.
The 70's/80's theme for me felt like a bad theme bar which is a shame.
