We stayed in this hotel for a week and it was a great base from which to explore the fabulous cosmopolitan city of Brussels. Situated quite close to the city centre (approximately 10-15 minutes' walk) we needed to use a back entrance due to building work but this was no hardship. We were immediately upgraded to an executive room (I think it was for the "inconvenience" of the building work going on) and the room was lovely, with great little additional treats such as "This Works" lavender pillow spray and pulse point balm to help with relaxation, super toiletries in individual dinky containers (a good make which unfortunately I can't remember but similar to Penhaligons!), dressing gowns and bottled water replenished daily. Large, airy and lots of natural light from large picture windows.
The breakfast was buffet style and had everything! Croissants, pain au chocolat, meats, cheeses, different types of breads, full cooked breakfasts and cereals....everything you may want!!!
The staff on Reception were courteous and very helpful. I was cheeky enough to ask for extra sets of the pillow spray and pulse point balm and these were given to me at no extra charge (these sets cost £10.50 on Boots!).
There is a great steak restaurant directly opposite the hotel and when in Brussels a visit would not be complete without a few specialist beers in A la Becasse which is about 10 minutes walk and is one of the oldest beer cellars in Europe....a real find!!!
All in all a great hotel in a pleasant location close to the centre of Brussels. I would happily go back!
