I stayed here with my boyfriend last weekend, We were impressed with the hotel. Lovely, clean, friendly staff, It has now changed to the Novotel which we were not informed of before, we happened to walk in and ask in this hotel.
We stayed around Grand Place during the day and were back in the hotel each evening, We had English channels 1 - 3 so were happy to chill in the evenings.
On the Sunday we went in to Bruges which was lovely and returned to Brussels Midi at 10pm. The area is really rough at night and I didn't feel safe walking the 5 min walk to the hotel. It is such a shame as we were really impressed with the hotel but the area is horrible. Not safe to walk at night. We were pestered by homeless locals looking for spare change at the station who got quite threatening when we went to walk away and this was at 11am on a Sunday morning. There were no police local to keep the crowd of locals away from the main station entrance.
I would really consider staying in Bruges for a better holiday than Brussels. But the hotel deserves its 4 stars, security was brilliant and we had no problems.
A 7 euro tax per night is also added to your bill at the end.
