Location of hotel was excellent (directly on Groenplaats).
Large comfortable & quiet room on the 4th floor.
The staff I encountered spoke excellent English, were polite & helpful (advised me where I could watch Arsenal v Man Utd. game not on TV in hotel).
After not finding a restaurant to my liking, decided to give Hilton's a go... Was given fleshly hand sliced brown & white bread with butter whilst choosing & waiting for my meal. Selected spaghetti bolognaise (local twist) & a Leffe Grande Cru beer followed by a Mango trifle for dessert.
Bowl was deceiving big, spaghetti cooked perfectly with a spiced meaty bolognaise sauce atop.
Beer was cold & accompanied by the correct glass (important in Belgium), but left to pour my own drink..?
Dessert (mango trifle) was in a large wine glass with nice garnish. All in all, a nice meal.
Was offered (and accepted) late checkout of 2pm. Went shopping around the city until 1:30, when I went to go back to room found that keycard didn't work (needed for lift as well as room)..? Apparently when organising late checkout, hotel didn't extend the access to card, so needed to talk to front desk to get back in (small annoyance).
