“Great hotel for the price”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

As a regular tripadvisor visitor, I went to check what people were saying about this hotel. Some made it look terrible, others only talked about the working girls outside the door. So unfair! We were three people and we were pleasantly surprised by our room. We were given a small duplex apartment with small kitchen, mini bar and a flat screen TV with hundreds of channels, including our international channel. The kitchen enabled us to do simple dishes and breakfast and save a lot of money in meals, as restaurants are a bit expensive. Yes, there are prostitutes outside the door, but they never did nothing to us and there are also all kinds of people in this area and I never felt unsafe, not even at night. At about 30€ per night, this hotel was a great deal - right next to a metro station, 20 minutes walking distance from the Grand Place, with all kinds of supermarkets and bars for all kinds of needs. Very good hotel, I would stay there again!

Stayed March 2014, travelled with family

The worst hotel I've ever been to. My girlfriend and I just stayed for one night and we woke up and there were bugs in the bed that bit us. We came home and we had to take a lot of measures to clean and disinfect ourselves. It was the first time something like that happened to us. So in the end the fact that the place is full of prostitutes 24 hours and talking loud at night was the least significant thing, but well maybe they use that hotel... In the end we cancelled our reservation and we stayed somewhere else during our stayed in Brussels.

Room Tip: Don't choose the building that is not in the reception building.

The hotel is a very good, budget-friendly option for travelers to Brussels. Yes, as many reviewers have previously noted, there are a lot of prostitutes hanging around but honestly this was not a real issue for us, they didn't bother us two women at all and we felt more in danger in other parts of the city. The room was nice and clean with higher ceilings and there's free tea and coffee near the desk. The location is pretty good, not a far walk to city center and the Église du-Béguinage is a few minutes down the street and a lovely sight beaconing us out in the morning and welcoming us back at night. Would certainly recommend for the price.

We had a great start to our stay as we got upgraded to a bigger room for free! The room had 2 bedrooms, so that was great for 3 of us. We were on the top floor, and the only bad part about that was that we did not get any wifi signal up there. The hotel in right in front of a brothel kind-of place, which is greatly entertaining at night! The staff was very friendly and we had a good stay overall.

Room Tip: Take a room on a lower floor for wifi-signal!

The hotel was really nice, staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was spotless and well presented. It's in a great location right next to the metro and only a 10min walk from the Xmas market.
The only problem is that it's surrounded by prostitutes and although they never bothered us it was a little off putting having to walk past them every time we wanted to go out. They were also a bit noisy during the night when they were arguing. It's a real shame because apart from that we had a very nice stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in 234, spacious and clean with comfy king sized bed, facing the street so a little noisy

The Hotel staff is great, the hotel newly renovated, it's close to the center, to the train station, to the metro, but, there are prostitutes on the streets and if you are sensitive to these issues, better don't go there. Girls are nice and there's no danger, but I felt bad as it's not nice seeing girls selling themselves.

Room Tip: I had a quiet one on the back yard and it was perfect - very quiet.

Honestly I don't know what some of these people saw. This hotel for any number of days is terrible. Find another hotel to stay in. I booked a suite and then they said I didn't book it. After arging with the clerk all night and showing her my receipt, they finally left it alone. The preview of the rooms online looks nothing the real rooms. The couch was broken when I got my room. The counter was broken in my room. The view was horrible. Look out a window and saw the back alley roof and another buildings wall. The balcony view is the ladies of the night who actually use to be men. The prostitutes don't bother anyone. I feel like online is very misleading. The rooms look human size online, in all actuality they're the size of a broom closet. All I'm saying is think hard before you book your stay. Anywhere but here.
