Went for a long weekend with my mother, aunt and sister, Friday 10th to Sunday in January. Was pleasantly surprised by the grand look of the hotel from the outside, having passed a few hotels on the way from the station. Inside the décor is stunning, modern and has a boutiquey feel to it. Staff at the reception were all very attentive, saying hello and goodbye as we came in and out of the hotel. When we first arrived, the woman at the desk (sorry i don't her name) was very helpful, gave us a map, circled some of the sights and answered our questions.

The rooms were very nice but I have to agree with what was written below about it being too hot and stuffy at night..but seeing as we only stayed two nights, it wasn't such a big deal. One other small problem was the lighting in the room..even with all the lights on, including the bathroom, the room still felt a bit dingy. We didn't use the sauna or steam bath so cant comment on that, neither did we have breakfast in the hotel. For a few euros outside we picked up some coffee and some pastries, which we were happy to wander around with.

Nevertheless the hotel is in a great location, only a few minutes walking distance to the Grand Place, and even closer to De Brouckere metro station which was very handy to get to the Atomium out of town.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling to Brussels for a long weekend, and would probably stay here again myself.

Stylish modern deco that felt five-star. Booked for a special girlfriends reunion so wanted something swish. Excellent location and service was good.
On getting into bed at 11pm, discovered that duvet had spattered blood stains - had been washed but stains were set in. Phone wasn't working properly so walked down to reception. They immediately sent someone up to change the duvet, so good customer service response. But luxurious mood was spoiled with this bit of "ick". Room was really hot at night, woke up sweating. Could not turn down heat (inadvertantly turned down the water heater, which is next to the fan (not heating) control, so water was cold in the morning, and we had to figure out why, then wait for it to heat up again. Why I would want to adjust the water temperature and not the air temperature doesn't really make sense to me. The hallways smelled a bit dank - not a big deal, just took away from the swish experience. Not terrible things, but for the price and reviews, I was expecting more swish. For value and experience, I wish I'd booked Chez Dominique B&B instead, where I'd stayed earlier in the week.
Resto was ok, was hoping for memorable. Cocktails were really good.

Dearest Sara,
It is with my deepest concerns that I've gone through your words.
Not that I dislike your comments, but I am somehow sad as you were so close to... total satisfaction!
I'm always sobbing when all goes smoothly except for...
I sincerely apologize for the stains on your bed sheets, this simply should not happen!
Please, accept my sincere understanding,
Ellen de Boer.

We were so happy we selected this hotel. It's what you imagine Philipe Stark being inspired by. An old Dominican Monistary converted to a luxury hotel. Absolutely flawless - rooms were gorgeous with every amenity. The bar was great and the service was outstanding. Great location too - just a couple of blocks to walk to the square and a host of shops, restaurants and sites. It was close to everything but was far enough away to be quiet - across from the opera house.

We spent one night at this hotel before returning back to the States from our Christmas trip. Booked off the internet we weren't sure what to expect. Access to the hotel by car was a bit difficult as it it located in a walking zone off of a one-way street. Once we figured out how to get there we were delighted to find a very classy and modern hotel. Staff was extremely busy as we arrived early at peak check-out time but was still extremely friendly and helpful. They took our bags, we went to the beautiful bar for an early drink and told them we would check-in later. The hotel is conveniently located to all the major attractions so we just started walking. We came back later to complete our check-in. Our room was very small but well equipped. The shower was a bit strange with just a glass partition and no door which resultfed in water spilling all over when using the rain shower... Breakfast the next morning was wonderful with fresh croissants, wonderful breads and charcuterie, cheeses, etc.
We enjoyed our short stay and can only recommend this hotel to our fellow travelers
