Hotel Villa Royale
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I did like the hotel and is well locate for public transport and nearest the city I will be using this hotel each time I will travel to Belgium. The only problem was the wifi connection was not good from the room.

I'm not particularly familiar with Brussels or, indeed, Belgium so I've no idea how this compares with its peers, whether it was value for money and how many of the odd things I noted would be found at any hotel. Nevertheless, as a British reviewer and business traveller, these were my thoughts:

Firstly, the hotel is very dark. The rooms, the lobby, the dining area. They all have plenty of lights, but are lit in a dim way that does not inspire. The light is not the only thing that's minimal. No kettles in rooms and, while the storage space was ample, just three coat hangers seems a bit odd.

I was staying with a number of colleagues and our experiences of our rooms varied from identical to mine to completely different. My room (Room 101 no less) opens into a bit of roof. You can see nothing from the room, but that doesn't stop the sound from the road carrying in. Colleagues facing the road reported greater noise. When someone, somewhere, smoked the smell quickly carried in the window. The temperature in the room was awful. Some radiators were behind screens meaning you couldn't turn them off easily. When you did, the room cooled so quickly you needed them on again.

The bathroom had a tub with a shower attached but no way of mounting it on the wall, no shower curtain, but also no plug to use the tub as a bath. The TV has a fair choice of international TV channels though, unusually, no BBC or Sky News.

The breakfast here was very good, with the exception of the coffee. Despite the dining room being painfully small at busy times, the choice is quite extensive and has something for most tastes.

The WiFi is free, but you wouldn't want to pay for it. It was utterly unreliable at seemingly random times.

Those moans aside, it was a really comfy bed, a spacious room, a good location and what seemed a fair price. Would I stay here again? Yeah, why not. Would I book this hotel as a first choice? Probably not.

Room Tip: Avoid room 101 unless space is your main priority.

I travel for work everyday and I have been in many hotels.
The receptionist told me that he had to charge me for hot water. The room does not even have a kettle. His excuse was that this is a three star hotel (so don't expect anything)

I've been in much worse hotels before but I get treated better.

Good location of the hotel, nice room with high ceiling, which makes room bigger. It seems like the building of the hotel is quite old because it has nice fretwork on the ceilings. Also in the design of the room used warm colors, this helps you to can calm down and sleep nicely.

But i had problems with internet, did not have connections at all in my room. Very annoying!! Also had some problems with my sink, it was blocked with shut-off device, which was broken i could not open it. This was fixed right away by staff but the feeling remain that something around can be broken and working as well.
In general i will rate 3, which for me means good but not perfect.

+: Absolut downtown location: the hotel is just a 10 minutes walk from the grand place. Our room on the 5th floor was very roomy with a large bathroom. You can use the safe box for free. It was very silent on the 5th floor. And it was just 25euro/night. The fancy mirano continental club is also just a 10 minutes light stroll from the hotel. A carrefour supermarket is just around the corner.
-: The wi-fi sign was a little bit weak.

This hotel is in a convenient location and reasonably priced. The room was clean, but tiny and the bottom sheet was too small for the bed. Staff were not particularly helpful. Breakfast was only adequate.

We had an awful stay at this hotel, let me start by saying for 10 whole euros you get stale bread, scrambled egg and stale bread for breakfast that's great. Then the staff, firstly the cleaning staff through out our bus tickets to get back to the airport. So we explained to the manger we are now stranded in Brussels 20 miles or so away from the airport without money, to which he replied 'you should of bought a safe so unlucky' other than that an the area being surrounded by a red light district and drug dealers outside the door it was lovely. Please don't be as naive as us and pick the cheapest option.
