When visiting the Best Western in Brussels I found an immaculate room with all the toiletries in a spotless bathroom. It was an average sized room for Europe; I was not expecting a suite. The breakfast offered some hot, cold cereal, and continental servings with fresh pressed orange juice. Unfortunately, the hotel staff for the most part was not particularly welcoming, except for one man by the name of Jordi who really cared about the guests, and went out of his way to accommodate each request. I chose the hotel because of its location near the railway station, little more than 5 minutes if you take the right streets. I also wanted to be in the “middle of the city.” It indeed was difficult for me to locate the hotel initially; even with a GPS I got turned around. The flat screen television in the room "skipped" occasionally, which was annoying. Since my stay was relatively brief, I found the room to be sufficient. I did appreciate the proximity to the beautiful Botanical Gardens of Brussels, which is literally across the street. Nonetheless, I would not feel safe walking in and around the neighborhood at night, although the hotel itself is just diagonal to a police station. I do wish that the Grand Square had been closer such as it was promoted in the hotel's promotional lore. If you do not know where you are going, the fifteen minute walk to the Grand Square can be extended significantly. I have been to many Best Western Hotels throughout Europe and this was not its finest feather. It was adequate and that is all.
