“fine budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

This place is fine as a budget hotel right in the center of Brussels, close to the central plaza.
The hotel room was large enough, fully renovated, clean, hot water, television etc.
Continental breakfast was included, very similar to what you get in other hotels.
Due to it's place near the center it can be noisy at night.
The hotel reception and hotel rooms are not located in the same building. Hotel guests get a key and have to cross the street to get to their room. This also means that there is no real security as you would normally have when the hotel reception is located at the entrance of the hotel.
Underground secured parking facilities are available, In order to gain access the parking spots one has to walk around the building block.
The garage could use some serious renovation. Floors are dirty, walls are covered with soot. there are no markers, some parts of the garage seem to be used for storage of some kind, there are no exits to the hotel.

The hotel is convenient to the center and Grand-Place. Our room, for 3, was big enough and clean. While the room was nice and the bath had a wonderful, deep tub the door could only be locked with a key so it was either locked or not. I am not overly concerned about fire or other emergencies, but this situation meant that either there was not a fast way out or the room would not be secure. Also noteworthy are the elevators: I have never seen such slow elevators! But the people were nice, the room was quiet and clean. Overall it is worth consideration.

When you leave the hotel they ask you in the reception extra money with the excuse that is a city tax that you must pay! of course that tax when you make check in they dont tell you nothing and you find out about it when you leave the room and you go to pay! And the personal is very rood the worst hotel ever!

We stayed here for three nights and each night the room was hot! The first night I admit I didn't sleep well as I could hear people above us but to be honest I'm a super light sleeper! The hotel is brilliantly located, easy access to everything and easy to find, although there's no real signage on the street but look out for the ladbrookes and you'll find it! I always felt safe, the only thing was the lift ... takes forever! This is fine if you're looking for something that's clean, easy access and relatively cheap.

A nice location but a terrible room (holes in floor and window frames). Dingy and seedy. A colleague who had to stay described it as 'squalid'. I walked out and went to find somewhere else. Don't stay here or at the very least be prepared to argue with the surly staff.

Absolutely loved the staff. Very friendly and helpful when needed. The hotel is very centered in the heart of everything. Short walk to most tourist attractions. Would definitely stay here again no doubt.

This hotel is very well located, in a walking distance of all Brussels turistic places. When we arrived (late, around 10pm), there was no room left at the hotel and we had a reservation, so they moved us to an apartment across the street, which belongs to the hotel. The apartment had a bedroom, a loving room, a kitchen, TV, wifi... awesome!!! It is a very cool option for big families or big groups of friends that could stay together saving money! The staff was so nice and even carried our bags until the room.
