“Great location, comfortable space, nice staff”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Great location. We took the train from the airport and could easily walk to the hotel from the central station and the main square. We could then take the train from the same station onwards to Bruges. The room was clean, chic, modern but not over done. Also fairly quiet, considering the location. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had breakfast there one morning and it was a good spread of hot, cold items, juice, coffees, etc. Would stay here again and recommend to friends.

Having decided to have a weekend in Brussels we looked through the many hotels and decided 9Hotel looked perfect for what we wanted.

The hotel is modern and well thought out. The check in process went without mishap. The rooms were of a decent size and well decorated. We were on the 2nd floor looking over the main road and having the adjoining wall to a bar.

The hotel is located a few hundred yards from Brussels Central train station. It's also a 5 minute walk to the Grand Place, shopping areas, restaurants & nightlife.

We found the breakfast expensive for a continental offering, so we choose to go to one of the many cafés instead.

The only negative point is the noise. With the hotel situated with a bar either side of it, that play extremely loud music on Saturday nights. Meaning unless you can sleep through an earth quake you are likely to be awake until the early hours of the morning whether you want to be or not.

Such a shame that the noise created from the neighbouring bars ruins what would be a perfect modern hotel in a great location.

The location is great--literally steps away from the central train station and just a couple blocks away from everything in the old city.

The rooms are very spartan--just what you need, and nothing that you don't. I liked them, but my wife found them sterile.

The staff here was great--very helpful. We didn't try the breakfast--seemed expensive for what was available. But after checking around with local restaurants, the price point really wasn't out of line.

The only issue was noise. We were on the 2nd floor and even though the hotel wasn't on a main street, the overnight street noise was awful. Maybe a higher floor room would have been better.

Room Tip: higher floor to avoid road noise.

In a place with so many historical and classic buildings, le9Hotel was a cool and modern change. Room was quite small and bathroom tiny, but well configured and very clean. I had a little balcony which was a lovely bonus.
Breakfast was pricey for the limited choices, but coffee ok.
Sadly, the staff gave the distinct feeling that they were better than the patrons with a very offhand manner. The desk clerk on duty when I arrived seemed almost annoyed that I'd interrupted his day. (I was accompanied to the hotel by two Belgian friends and they thought the same).
It was a shame for an otherwise nice place.

Very happy to have found this hotel after checking many more. Most were more expensive and not in as good locations. Easy to find a short walk from Central Station. In fact the Metro Station for Central Station is virtually next door. Place Central is only another 5 to 10 minute walk beyond that too. A block away from the Cathedral and the Upper Town. There's a bar a couple of doors up the hill and a few sandwich shops as well. The whole hotel has a modern chic and chilled easy going feel to it. All furniture and fittings stylish and well thought out. Standard room was a decent size and all the TV, lights, bathroom fittings were modern and worked well. With the windows shut there was no noise issues from the busy road at the front of the hotel. Air conditioning prevented the need to open windows anyway if any noise needed to be avoided. No real noise heard from any other rooms either. Breakfast was of a decent quality and ample choice. Very comfortable bed and bedding made for a good sleeps.The only thing which could improve a stay would be some form of tea/coffee making facilities, which I understand is available in upgraded rooms. All the staff seem happy to work there. Made for a pleasant stay in such a clean, decent and stylish hotel with little fuss. Would definitely recommend and stay in the future.

Room Tip: Rear of hotel may avoid any potential traffic noise issues.

We stayed here two nights in one of their larger rooms. The beds were comfortable, the room clean and quiet and a good size for a European hotel, and the shower nice and hot, The metro was right next door, and most major attractions were an easy walk away

9Hotel was a nice place to stay-just far enough from the tourist sights but so easy to walk to. Check-in was good, had a nice Club room on the 3rd floor great space for two people for a few night. Love the exposed brick. Pablo, at the Front desk always had a friendly smile and a hello when returning to the hotel in the evening. Had a great sleep, room was clean and fresh daily. Just a few steps from Central station and there was an enterence right at the corner from the hotel which made getting to the train fantastic. I was a bit uneasy trying to find a hotel in Brussels looking at a map but I am so glad I picked 9Hotel Central.
