Made a citytrip to Bruxulles from 13 till 16 September 2013. We wanted a hotel nearby the city centre and with enough luxury. The location is simply perfect, about a 5 minute walk and you are at the Grand Place. The breakfast was fantastic. Lost of different fruit, cereals, dairy and all. Service could be more friendly but it is breakfast after all. The sauna is nice and the use of free towels is good. So far for the good point.
The rooms are very dark and the interior is outdated. So are the hallways on the in total five floors. We had a room on the fifth floor with a porely working airconditioning. After some complaining we moved to floor 1 but still, no fresh air, poor airco. So the room didn't have the comfort you might expect is a 4* hotel. Then up to the bar for a drink. Service was bad. Television seemed to be more important of interesting then serving a drink to a gast. Over the weekend we met 1 employee who spoke Dutch of English in a way we understood. Again disappointing for a hotel of this level.
Not a recommendable hotel and for us there will be no next time.
