This was the first hotel I stayed at on my 10 day trip and was probably my favourite. The staff was very pleasant when we arrived early and we were to leave out bags in a secure room until check-in at 3pm. The rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable with good sheets. Only annoying thing was that the beds were two twin beds pushed together and preferably it would have been nice to get a double. (not sure if they had double beds)
The best part about this hotel was the location. So many restaurants and shops in the area and it was about a 13 euro taxi from brussels midi. There is a taxi stand right next to the hotel if you need one early in the morning to get to a train.
Look at booking this hotel on a third party service because I was able to get a double room for $120 CDN for the night when the actual price at reception was 270 Euros for a double. For $120 it was well worth the money.
