We spent 2 weeks traveling in Brussels, London, Amsterdam and Bruges and by far this was the best hotel we stayed in.
It had a great location - about a minute walk from The Basilica of the Holy Blood and 2 minutes from the main square and Bell Tower. Also has free WiFi (password is on your key card holder). The shower also has great water pressure.
The room was a decent size and the beds were so comfy on days that it rained - we didn't mind just relaxing in them and reading or watching Wimbledon.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and it was a good start to the day - nothing amazing but a nice selection of fruit, croissants, eggs, bacon and sausages.
Their bar/cocktail area was also a great place to relax. The hotel staff was super helpful with anything we needed - directions/taxis/umbrellas, etc.
We were in the "new" section of the hotel which was quiet.
You need to grab a taxi if getting there by train...you could walk it - but it would be too much with bags.
If I had to do it all over again - would definitely stay there and recommend this to anyone traveling to this city.
