It was our first time in Brussels and we checked into Hotel Bloom. It was lovely at first sight but the hotel staff were plain rude and impolite. Rooms were comfortable but when asked for room slippers, staff simply said 'Only for VIPs' or 'Room slippers are not part of your package hotel deal'. As it was snowing heavily with bad weather condition in Brussels, our boots were soaked with water and all we wanted were just a pair of room slippers for us to step into the room, hygenically.
So, we gave up asking for slippers because we were not entitled to have one. When we checked out, the staff at desk wasn't delighted to serve us. She even issued the wrong amount and I specifically asked for a revised version of the receipt. To my suprise, she said "No, I can't do that for you". I didn't know what to say next - either she was dumb enough or she needs IT training. It was not a rocket science task, to get a revised receipt. To top that off, she was staring and me, giving me a very pretentious face the whole time.
One more thing to add is the horrendous food served in the restaurant. 25 Euro per person for a breakfast and it wasn't even good! The scramble eggs look like some beaten yellow powder all mixed together with water. Waffles were hard and cold.
No, I WOULD NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. Location was so-so. Better off getting a hotel near the city with the same price.
Also, remember to bring your own universal adapter/plug as the hotel charges 5.50euro for it, or better - bring your own room slippers during winter season.
