The Novotel provides a great mid-level room in an excellent location. Fortunately, the Brussels city center is quite modest with most tourist stuff in a very walkable area. The Novotel is not on the Grand Place (who wants to be there in tourist town?) and on a somewhat gritty urban street, but this is a very easy walk to all in-town sights, one block from the busy Anspach shopping street and essentially surrounded by great non-tourist restaurants including some great ethnic choices. We walked to the hotel rolling our bags from the central train station following our overnight flight and this was fine. Highly recommended restaurants in the area include "Yaki", a tiny family run Thai place a few steps down the hotel street and the outstanding "Fin De Siecle" serving delicious, hip comfort food.
Our room at the Novotel was comfortable and well equipped if a tad small. The bathroom was nice. There was some of the seemingly ubiquitous scaffolding on the outside of our room and a bit of work during the day but in general the room was quiet and comfortable. General service/cleanliness was top notch but we felt the policies and assistance we got from the desk staff was a bit lacking for instance refusing to provide change for a large euro note (not currency exchange - just change). I don't think I've ever had a hotel refuse to do this before and perhaps is policy. Our room was not ready until after midday and I can't say the staff was very accommodating about this. These are minor issues and overall we were very satisfied with our stay at the Novotel and I think it provides an excellent choice for a vacation stay in beautiful Brussels.
