“Could be better!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

It is too expensive for what it has to offer. Very poor service, the carpets are quite old and not very nice for people with allergy. The breakfast is average. For the price of the room it had to be better than it is.

While staying there I spent my last day out and upon return they refused to let me in the room to get my stuff and even money to pay for the extra time. The requested me to pay first and than I could go to the room. I was there for several days and paid in advance. It wasn't nice! I had to call a friend to come an pay so I was able to have access to the room.

The good part, is that it is well located close to the Mid Train Station and a few kilometers from the Grand Plaza.

Well, Ibis is right at the next block in the same road. Better hotel, better service, better price!

KeiKurono's review sums it up well.
I booked at the last minute, needing somewhere close to Gare du Midi. It really is only a couple of minutes walk away.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful (But I do speak good French) and the bed comfortable. Yes the room and bath room are small, but mine were clean and decent.
The WiFi which others have criticised, worked well, free and fast.
My room (16) was at the back and VERY quiet.
Considering Brussels prices I consider it very good value.
I gather the breakfast is good though I did not have time to try it.

Room Tip: The ones at the back - e.g. number 16 - are certainly quiet. Front might be noisy.

Plus: very near and within walking distance to the south station(midi); so it's good if you need to catch the early train.

Cons: area of stay is busy so it might look a bit shoddy(best to watch your back). Hotel is generally clean but slightly dated. Nevertheless, everything works.
Price wise for Europe I think it's reasonable too; paid 63euros for the night

The stuff about the walls being thin is true though. Even the floor feels thin. if it bothers you, choose somewhere further from the lift though i don't think it differs that much.

Stay here if you need to catch then early train and don't mind the slightly average stay.

One night in this overpriced BUDGET hotel is all I could manage, Rooms are tiny, service is poor, quality is way below what is expected from a a hotel that charges so highly. Unless you are 6 foot tall you will not be able to operate the heater - it's fixed high on the wall with NO remote control, NO heating controls of any kind, and NO way of making it quiet during the night, There was an aopen door to a highly dangerous ELECTRICAL cupboard with exposed wires and switching systems only feet from my door, and unhelpful staff wh couldnt apologise for poorly handwritten wi-fi passwords that couldnt be understood.

I was booked in to this hotel for a one night business trip. What can I say?. Thin walls,noisy road and rail links to the front (so ask for a room at the rear or high up) and basically just distinctly average for a high price. I'm sure there is much better.

Allmost all hotels in Brussels this week so I ended up in this hotel. It is located near Ger du Midi, very near! In fact I could hear even the loudspeaker from the train station platform quite clearly when I had the window open. Luckily it was quiet enough for a good nights sleep with the windows closed. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good, so all in all - rather good value for money

Room Tip: The rooms not facing the street and railway station are probably more calm

Spent one night here in September 2013. Hotel is directly across the road from one of the exits of Bruxelles-Midi station. It doesn't look much from the outside, and the area around the station/hotel isn't the nicest but the room was clean and breakfast was OK. Couldn't get wifi to work, but wasn't really an issue on this occasion.
