The hotel is within an easy, relatively short walk from the train station, and is very close to the Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula. Easy walking from the hotel to most of the City's attractions, including the stunning Grand Place. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a room with two beds and they were far enough apart. However, there is a glass window / wall thing that looks into the bathroom that is not frosted over enough! I stayed here with my mom & we tested it - we could see more than we wanted!! So...we were very careful with our use of the bathroom! This should be better addressed, especially in rooms with 2 beds! Very likely this hotel caters a bit more to single travelers on business. In fact, we were here during the work week, and the peak shower time before 9 AM left us cold. Literally! The water in the shower did not get warm until after 9 AM.
The TV was old tube type - not a flat screen, but there were a few channels in English and other languages. Our room did not have a view, and we were okay with that. We did look out onto an office building, so the curtains were necessary! The walls were pretty thin, too - we could hear our neighbors in the adjoining rooms. The bed was not that comfortable, either. The halls were narrow and kind of smelly. The lobby had an area with food,wine & beer for purchase out of refrigerated shelves / units, but we got directions to a nearby grocery store, and were able to buy wine, breads, and things for breakfast quite inexpensively. We did not spend the exorbitant 24 euros per person on breakfast here. There's the grocery store, as well as plenty of great options for waffles, coffee, etc. nearby. Actually, the train station is close enough that one day we actually walked there to get a Starbucks coffee and yogurt. I know, I know, but we had been in Belgium for two weeks already so we caved in that one time!! Sorry that the review is not that great. I'm a forgiving type and enjoy lots of types of hotels, but I'd bet there are other options that are just a bit better. Again, I'd say the best part of this hotel is its central location. We would look for something else next time.
