Hotel Orts has a great location in Brussels. It's across the Street from the Marriott, which was the host hotel for a conference I was attending. It's about half the price of the Marriott. This of course in NOT a Marriott, but as a small boutique hotel it has a very nice feel. The hotel has just 15 rooms.
My room (308) was large by European standards. A single queen sized bed. The bath was large as well, with a decant sized shower stall and plenty of hot water and water pressure.
The hotel is small and appears to be family owned/operated. The bar on the first floor is owned by them as well. I'll review it later. The hotel is overall nice but it has a few quirky characteristics. Spotty/ erratic internet ( but free!). Two lamps didn't work upon checking in, but we're immediately fixed. One had burned out bulb, the other just needed tightened (I assumed it was out). The hotel staff also doubles at times as the adjoining restaurant staff as well. So they may be attending to the restaurant at off-hour times. The lobby is small, virtually non-existent, but you really don't need one here, and it literally adjoins the restaurant. I found the staff to be quite accommodating and friendly. It's a bit quirky as I said, but it's very clean and very comfortable.
My friend was in room 309. Her room was smaller, and her bath was considerably smaller than mine. Both had new dark hardwood flooring rather than carpet, and both rooms were nicely decorated
Some reviews mentioned noise was a factor. I was concerned about that but it wasn't a problem for me. Most noise is street noise ( it's a popular area of town, and Belgians are noisier than Parisians. They seem to use the car horns regularly, but not "laying on them", however. if the car ahead doesn't move immediately after a signal turns green, the car behind "will let you know".
Don't forget to bring your own wash cloths or body scrubber! European hotels generally do not provide them!
Good location. 1-2 minute walk to metro station.
A 10 minute walk to the Grand Palace area where there is beautiful architecture, and great and abundant dining in a quintessential classic European atmosphere. Don't miss out on going there!
