“Fantastic value for money”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

Wow! What an excellent hotel for the money. Upon arrival we parked our car in the underground parking which is great knowing the car was safe (the underground parking it tremendous!) and went upstairs to check in. Checked in fine and went to our room.. It was amazing! Beds were comfy, bathroom was clean and new, coffee and tea at your disposal.. It was excellent for the price we paid.
I can't fault the hotel in any way! Wifi is free and worked great.

Worth staying if you're travelling on the Eurostar as it's opposite the station.

It's about a mile and a bit away from the city centre.. I didn't mind the walk! Especially after a few beers.

5 min walk from the eurostar station (which is specially useful if you arrive on a evening and there is a massive queue outside the station to pick a taxi). Neighborhood/area is not great to go out but still easy access to main city center walking (15-20 min) or by metro.

The hotel room very nice and comfortable, room had been renewed recently and had all the accessories we needed: free fast wifi access, kettle with tea, tv,etc

I was quite impressed by the bathroom, it had a thermal light on the ceiling acting like a heater after you had a shower/bath which was quite nice.

The only thing I would mention is the fact that you are asked to pay additional local taxes on top of the room price (although this is mentioned on your booking this could have been added to the total instead of having to remember to have spare 7 euros to pay for it on arrival).

I would recommend this if you go on a short city break and arrive by train as is easy to reach and you can always leave your bags there and collect them before you go to the station. I would not recommend this is you want to spend more than a couple of days as the area is not great for restaurants/bars or attractions to see.

Room Tip: Room not facing the road as it can be quite noisy

Had a great weekend away.

Hotel and Nice... Clean...... and very new

BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT

the wifi was really poor. I had to put my chair against the door to get it to work. You don't visit a city to use the wifi but how frustrating it is when not even google maps will load before you leave your room?

Area was ok since it is next to the station it was extra convenient to go.. also not far at all to walk to the main square. maybe 15 minutes of a fast walk and you get to see a different side of Brussels.

It is very clear that they had some sort of a refurbishment and it worked. very nice

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the back of the hotel as the main road is quite busy. stay weekends, Brusse...

The hotel itself is good, the staff is really helpful and the hotel in itself is a typical clean and effective business hotel. But its the location of the hotel that puts us in a dilemma. If you are a traveler heading out via eurostar or thalys to another country then the proximity of the Brussels Midi station is a boon. However if you are a traveler wanting to see the sights and sounds of Brussels, sure the metro is a stones throw away but the area around the hotel gives a negative and unsafe vibe at night, though during my stay nothing happened but the hotel staff warned us to not go out beyond 9:00 pm so that says something about the location.

Room Tip: I got mine on the fifth floor and it was a twin bed sharing and was adequate.

This hotel is quite good for the environment it is in. Very convenient for an early leave from Brussels Midi station. Bit far from the centre. Modern and new outlook. Good staff although not extremely friendly or welcoming. Simple bar, but with god priced offers. Did not use breakfast (rather expensive) so do not know about that.

Nice room, sufficiently sized. Two relax seats and a desk with chair, so plenty of possibilities for two people. Rest of the facilities okay. Spots on the (new) carpet and not everything all that shiny in the room.

It is okay for business people with connections. For tourist it is better to take a look closer to the centre although it is quite priceworthy.

Located across the street from the train station. Only a few places to eat close by and there are a couple of markets. About a 15 minute walk into central Brussels. Kind of a seedy area at night being so close to the train station but we had no problems.

Clean, fresh and new however WiFi was very poor. This was a big let down. This hotel is very close to the station so all good there. Great TV choice. A bit strange that you have to ring a door bell intercom system each time you want to get in. I can understand this at night however it acts as a barrier during the day. Overall however a pleasant stay.
