We found the location of this hotel very good, close to many restaurants, shops and attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was modern and clean. However, the bathroom design really bugged me. There is a glass panel in the wall of the bathroom situated right next to the toilet. It is barely frosted, so if you are sharing a room with someone this is a warning that you will be able to see each other on the toilet... Kinda weird and could make for an uncomfortable experience! Shower was pretty small also, but at least you had privacy while in there... Until you stepped out of course, when whoever is in the room can see you again... Also whenever we showered the room got super hot. However I would stay here again due to location :)

The hotel has a great location, that's why we selected for the 3 days in Brussels. What was annoying was the bathroom which had transparent walls, not nice. We had to change the first room where we were checked because of the noise of the AC. The hotel is clean, good breakfast but the location of the hotel near the train station and Grand Place was worth it.

The location of this hotel really can't be beat for exploring Brussels. It is just steps away from Grand Place and the Cathedral and it is worth it to stay here just for the location. Additionally the hotel is finished nicely, but has some quirks. The shower is cramped and the shower curtain is too short so water spills out easily. The bathroom has not so frosted glass on the windows so be prepared, whoever you're staying with is going to see you poop in detail. Our room also had black stains on the walls above the kettle. It looked like it had been on fire. A bit tacky for a nicer hotel. Overall I would go back. Helpful front desk ladies who speak an impressive number of languages.

Very close to the historical centre of the city, with its own parking garage (22 euros a night). Our room was a bit small, but had all the comfort you need and it was clean. The bathroom is small as well. The 'window' with frosted glass makes the bathroom more light, but, as it is situated next to the toilet, you might not have the privacy you would like. The airco works well, although it's rather noisy. Breakfast is great, lots of things to choose from!

The location of the hotel means everything you would want to see is at your doorstep. The Cathedral, Grand Palace and Gare Centrale are all within 5 mins walking distance. The room itself is not the biggest and I can see why others might call it small. But it's spanking clean with a nice sized toilet and enough room to move about so I wouldn't complain too much for the money you pay for it.

Do not stay here! The hotel wake you up in the middle of the night when cleaning rooms and they do not take into consideration that people are sleeping as they drag furnitures along the floor and make other noises they should avoid during the night. I also had the front desk hang up on me when I called to complain about the noise that woke me up and kept on for an hour.

Good morning,
I am really sorry for any disagreement you had during your stay with us and please accept my most sincere apologize for the way our staff treated your complaint!
Normally, we never clean the rooms after 5.00 pm in the afternoon, so I am very surprised that this done during the night. Could you please give me some more details about the date, your room number and also the hour when this happened? This could really help me to understand what happened and to take the necessary measures in order to avoid such disturbance in the future.
Thank you again for your comment!

Sincerely yours,
Hotel Director

the location was great, about 5-8 mins walk from gare centrale, and also 5 mins walk toward grand place, grote markt and so on
if you want to walk further, about 10-15 mins, you will find a long shopping street
i've booked the junior suite, but it seems that the room wasnt big enough for a jr. suite
Standard breakfast, the air conditioner and wasn't that cool, and the rest is so average
if you look for a hotel with great location you can choose this hotel, but if you're looking for a great place to stay, i wouldn't have this hotel

Room Tip: room facing street somehow is quite noisy due to the car and motorcycle passing by
