“Adviced!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Really nice hotel. Rooms are clean spacious and "artistic". The only (mino) negative comment i have was the slow check in process. We arrived at 13:00 and we could enter the rooms at 14:00. They told us it was due to a lot of checkout the night before requiring a lot of room-cleaning works. Not a big issue at all, but a small drawback.

Love the concept and modern + contemporary artistic interior design of the hotel. Room was clean and spacious . Breakfast has a decent spread and the VW Camper as a waffle station was an unexpected surprise - just had to take a photo! Lol

Check-in was very slow (long queue) but receptionists were welcoming and helpful.

We had a larger size room with a view.
Our first impression was of the artwork - ours in room 608 was pretty terrible to be honest, and I say that as someone who works in Art and sees a lot of painting. Second impression was that the room was generously sized and spacious, and the large window and white interior gave the room a really pleasant and light atmosphere. The view itself did indeed include lots of the city , but more immediately we looked out onto a disused social housing block that appears to have been blocked off ready for demolition - that could make for a noisy stay if you are at the back of the hotel in the next few months! And whilst interesting to look at, it wasn't what I'd expected of 'the view' that we had perhaps paid a small premium for!
The interior furnishings seemed just a little cheap, but were sound enough and the bed was really comfortable, the temperature at night just right - we definitely slept well.

The rooms were perfectly clean, the staff polite, knowledgable, courteous and friendly, and with excellent spoken English - when one staff member didn't know the place we wanted to visit she tried to look it up for us (although her advice had it at a two hour trip by various methods of public transport - in fact it's around 45 minutes by train, which we looked up on the hotel's free and speedy wi-fi (thumbs up there)).

The breakfast was 15 euro each a day, and we wouldn't usually bother, but we weren't convinced there would be too many options on the doorstep of the hotel (there weren't) and actually the breakfast buffet was excellent, well cooked warm food, the typical northern European hands and cheeses, fruit veg and even a waffle machine. We felt this was well worth it.

A couple more notes - the area immediately around the hotel is a bit indistinct, besides the botanic gardens its a not particularly flash business district, and many of the guests seemed to be there on business (we stayed 3 days midweek), however the metro is speedy and Brussels small so we could get wherever we wanted in 20 minutes or so, and its a quick a pleasant tram ride, now 92/93 I think, down to the Palace and Arts Museums, the Sorbonne area, and beyond Ixelles. This makes Hotel BLOOM! a good base, even if it's not right in the very centre.

We stayed last night in the hotel and it was very easy to find. To check in was abit slow, as there was only one man at the desk. Eventually a lady came to check us in. The room was very clean, but the shower screen was too small for the bath and because it didnt fit properly the water went all over the floor. The bathroom was a bit tatty with a a brown mark on the ceiling and toothpaste on the wallpaper, so could do with a re-fit. Only one sachet of milk powder each to go with our coffee which was disappointing. We only stayed one night so didnt have breakfast or the chance to use the hotel properly. Good value for money.

I visited Hotel BLOOM! with my family as a short break. We were a bit apprehensive after reading some of the previous reviews about the area however on arriving at the hotel our worries were gone.

The area is a typical suburban area of the city and we felt very safe. It is about 10-15 minutes from the Gare du Midi by Metro. The "Botanique" Metro stop is a 3-5 minute walk and the Tram is a 30 second walk to the "Gillon" stop. Both facilities are superb and a really easy way to get around town. We bought 72 hour Discover Brussels Passes for 17 Euro each. This allows you to use metro, trams and buses across the city to your hearts content over that period of time.

The staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful. They were very approachable and welcoming on arrival and we could tell that customer service was very important to them. This standard continued throughout our stay.

The hotel was very clean and 'quirky' with the reception being very modern and impressive with a fabulous scent which I would have loved to have bottled and taken home! The rooms were very individual. We took an offer to upgrade and were very impressed with our clean, very spacious rooms and huge bed which was very comfortable and gave a great night's sleep. There is free water in the fridge and some complimentary Senseo drinks capsules - you might wish to take your own.

Overall we were very impressed and would very much like to return again of visiting the city in the future.

Room Tip: Upgrade if you can to an XL room - great feeling of space and enriches well-being!

Hey City-stepper, thanks for these very kind words. It’s good to hear you didn’t only rely on other reviews but made up your own mind about the hotel and its area! We are very glad that you enjoyed the hotel and its staff, whose priority is indeed the service to the customer. It’s nice to hear that you took the upgrade and that it pleased so much! We hope to see back very soon!

after reading the reviews we were expecting more from Hotel Bloom.
good points - location, decor, with available parking (paid separately - 26 euros a night), ample room. breakfast had a nice touch of a waffle VW camper. Good internet promo, including free upgrade.

points that need attention - overall cleaning of the room, was ok, not great. There was no restaurant or room service available during easter break, very noisy for the 1st floor guests, and it took 30 mins to check in, even at 4:30pm. Receptinist offered menus to order via phone (problem is the restaurant did not have english speaking people answering : (
for a next time - ideas to do better - inform families that 1st floor rooms can be really noisy because of the bar on the ground floor. when restaurant is not open for any reason, have more kids friendly options at the on the go place in the ground floor.

Room Tip: dont take the rooms on the 1st floor.

We stayed in this hotel on Easter 2014 and were pleasantly surprised. We booked it along with the Eurostar and value was excellent. The hotel itself is nice, quiet, clean, service is great and the best part is the location, all we did was walk to the main areas every day!
