My husband and I stayed at the Vintage hotel in Brussels at the end of October while visiting my sister and her husband who live in the city.
We chose the location as it worked well for us - it was the half-way point between their house and the city, which meant we could walk in both directions. However if this wasn't the case, I am not sure I would recommend this location unless you really want to shop during your time in Brussels and you don't stay here on a Sunday. This area is extremely quiet on a Sunday with all the shops closed for business.
This is a fun quirky hotel and it is good value for money. However we had too many issues to rate the hotel more than 3 out of 5, especially after seeing a mouse downstairs one night after going out for dinner! I tried to take a photo, but it was too quick for me - I could not imagine staying at a hotel with mice again.
The room is quirky as the hotel and nice enough, except for the fact that it's TINY (smaller than our rooms in London and Paris) and although the bathroom is the same size as the room (seriously) it's mostly empty space with the tiniest shower I have ever used. It also get's very good at night and there is NO way to change the temperature in the room, as it's controlled only for the overall hotel, which made it very difficult to sleep.
This is probably the best part of the stay and very good value for money, although no eggs are on offer.
Service is lovely, although they don't help you with your bags and as we were on the 3rd floor, we had to use the lift, which is also TINY. We had to go up one at a time to get our bags to the room (and the bags then did not fit and we had to keep one in the bathroom!).
The people are helpful and friendly, this isn't the hotel's issue.
Overall we would not stay here again and would not recommend, unless you really are looking for a cheaper option.
