I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of April.
This hotel is advertised as a 2*, and I have stayed in far worse 2* hotels than this.
I arrived nervous, having read some reviews telling stories of cat pee smells, and views of garbage chutes and whatnot. However, I arrived and the reception area looked fine, with no cat pee smell. The staff spoke great english and was very helpful. I was given room number 52, and after stepping out of the lift (which was very small and worked after a few button presses), pleasantly suprised - floor 5 looks very nice!
It is worth noting that the lower few flights of steps have not been finished for reasons unknown to me. I also dont know how this reflects on the quality of the rooms on these 2 floors.
My room was small, but had room enough for 2 single beds pushed together (which had no traction on the wooden floor and kept sliding apart), a desk, and a little extra space. The beds themselves were very comfortable, which is the main thing.
The bathroom was modern, however i was missing a flush button thing - i was just left with the bare mechanism, but could still flush it. The sink was also tiny.
Location-wise, you are a 10-15 minute walk from the train station, and less than 5 from le mannekin pis and le grand place, a 45 minute walk from Jubelpark, and about 15 from fancy shops. You are in a really good location in this hotel.
Food-wise, the breakfast is worth every cent of the €3 per person per night I paid. Croissants and pain-au-chocolates, bread and various spreads, cheese,cereals, coffee and an assortment of teas, and orange juice. For lunch and dinner, you are so close to hundreds of restaurants, you can have whatever you want. If you're looking for more familiar food, there is a mcdonalds, pizza hut, or a quick 5 minutes' walk away.
Overall, if you're looking for somewhere cheap, where you only plan on being there late at night to sleep and early in the morning to eat breafast, that is close to brussel's attractions, I could not recommend Hotel Mirabeau enough!
