We've never been to Brussels before so chose our hotel choice entirely on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! When we arrived the receptionist wasn't available but the bar tender gave us our key and directed us to our room; about 15 minutes later the receptionist came up to apologise for not being available and explained how to access the wifi (free!), which TV channels were British and also let us know that the minibar was fully stocked and free for us to help ourselves to. It had soft drinks, bottled water, beer (of course) and champagne.
The room was perfect - room 102 is on the first floor and on the corner with balconies all the way round so perfect for people watching! It's not a huge room but perfectly clean and easily the most comfortable room I've stayed in! The bathroom had a good sized shower cubicle and was again spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was a continental buffet and a relaxed and casual affair. Freshly baked pastries, fruit, cereals and a large choice of fresh breads, cheeses and meats along with tea, coffee, fruit juice and chocolate milk. This was included in the room rate and made it excellent value.
We didn't eat in the hotel other than breakfast but drank in the bar every evening. The food looked amazing and the service was spot on - friendly and efficient.
In terms of location, the hotel couldn't be better placed. It's 5 minutes walk from the Grand Place so close enough to all the main attractions but far enough away to not feel like you're stuck in tourist hell. It's in the fashion district and has lots of fantastic bars and restaurants right on the doorstep. As a city, Brussels is very relaxed and all the bars we visited were very welcoming.
The metro stop is right on the street corner, less than 25m away, and it's only about a 10 minute walk from Gare Central and 15 minutes from Gare Midi so easy to get to and from and ideal if you want to go on day trips to Bruges, Antwerp, etc.
I really can't fault this hotel at all, and I'm usually hard to please! We can't wait to find an excuse to go back!
