Location: 15minutes walk to grand place, ( quiet long way back to hotel at night but safety is ok ) ,15minutes walk to midi train station ( eurostar) and nearest metro station is Porte de Hall. Few reataurant nearby and some convenient store where u can get fair price mineral water. Service: the receptionist was polite and helpful. He was available until 10pm everyday. But there were no room cleaning service throughout our three days of stay. No one clear the rubbish in our room :(. Wifi: stated as free wifi but accurately wifi is only available at the lobby. I talked to the receptionist that no wifi at my floor but he said on internet stayed as only available on ground floor, which i thought it was stated in the reviews not the hotel website. Facilities:no lift and only staircase:( tv fixed too high in position so it was uncomfortable to watch on the bed. and no batteries in the remove control of tv so we have to wake up and walk to tv to change channels omg!! the toilet was 3 in 1 small compartment , looked clean and only when i used it i felt it was so so small for showering( ii m considered small sized). The worse thing was the shower system. there were both hot and cold water supply. And we need to adjust both openers until the desired water temperature was achieved. We often need at least 5-10 minutes standing inside to adjust water tenperature. It was either too hot or too cold, or it may change temperature while u r showering. This prob seem ok during summer, i cant imaging if this was during winter where i hav to spend time in the toilet to adjust water temperature everyday where a hot bath is very much needed!! The window in my room couldnt be closed. And it seem dangerous to have the window open at night as it is big and a person can crawl into ur room easily. That why we want to close the window when we were out but it just couldnt! :(. But all in all we have a safe stay here. No air condition in the room, but there is a heater here:) Breakfast: 5 euro per person, from 7 to 10am. Buffet style, a typical continental breakfast but lack of eggs, tomatoes. A few varieties of bread including crossaint. Three types of hams and cheese. The variety of food was good but the quality was very very basic i would say. Overall, this hotel is basically good and clean and reliable. Just the wifi, no lift and poor shower system post some inconveniences uring my stay. For budget travellers, if this hotel offer good deals, it is still worth to consider:)
