“Poor internet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Good room, tidy and clean. bathroom clean, shame about shower curtain. Internet too slow for YouTube !! Nice friendly staff, tried to help but must have cheapo web package. Otherwise would have rated much higher. Very central, near the tourist area.

I try and evaluate hotels based on the base to which they most appeal. I am not certain what group the 9Hotel is targeting, except all I saw were young mostly English speaking tourists.

My room was the smallest that I have had in many weeks of traveling through Europe by train. However, it was laid out very well so that I really didn't lack for anything. And there was a most lovely balcony with a view of the steeples of St. Michael's Cathederal. I would trade size of room for that little balcony ten out of ten times. The usual assortment of amenities were in the room.

The flaw with the 9Hotel is the elevator. There is only one, and it is very slow, and it is over used. I have stayed in several hotels with a single elevator, but never with as long of waits.

The other disadvantage to this hotel is a lack of businesses in the surrounding area, bodegas, restaurants, and the like. However, it is somewhat centrally located to most tourist sights and it is convenient to the train.

Je vous remercie pour votre commentaire. Le bâtiment n’est pas conçut pour avoir 2 ascenseurs et il est vrai qu’à certaines heures chaudes il y a un peu d’attente. Nous sommes dans un quartier où le premier restaurant est à 50 mètres de l’hôtel et nous sommes en plein cœur de Bruxelles à 5 minutes à pieds de tous les restaurants, sites, Grand’Place et autres attractions bruxelloises. Nous veillerons à ce que nos réceptionnistes donnent toutes les meilleures adresses à 2 pas du 9HOTEL CENTRAL

The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious.

The location was convenient for accessing the Grand Place. It was also convenient for the Comic Strip museum and good restaurants.

The breakfast was decent, though a bit overpriced.

We stayed here one night after a bike and barge tour from Amsterdam to Bruges and it was convenient and with good service and very comfortable, stylish (minimalist) rooms. Breakfast was expensive and one could get a much less expensive but good breakfast nearby. So we didn't get breakfast there. It is near the Grand Place and very near the train station Station Centraal which is a 20 minute trip to the airport.

The hotel exceeded all expectations I had. The rooms we're very spacious and clean. WiFI was very good. It's located close to Central Station and it's a short walk to Grand Place, where there are many restaurants, shops, and beer lovers haven, Delirium Cafe. Highly recommended.

My 21 year old daughter and I stayed 2 nights on the way home from a two week trip in Paris and Belgium. The hotel is in a great location near train, metro, museums and Grand Place. The rooms are clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and convenient and the service at the hotel was great. I definitely would stay again and would like to try their other property in Paris.

This small boutique hotel is in a fantastic location just up the road from Brussels Centraal Station and a short stroll to the main centre. Very clean, modern and a great comfy bed. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room and even a fridge. Modern and adequately sized bathroom with separate WC but could have done with a shelf or two in the bathroom as there was nowhere to put our toiletries.
We opted for breakfast in the morning but, for the €15 charge, found it quite basic and would have liked a more varied choice of fruits, cereals and hot food.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay in both Brussels and in this hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering visiting this great city.

Room Tip: As far as we could tell, all rooms were of the same great standard. Even the lift was quiet and you...
