Many are very rude in their evaluation of this hotel. Yes, it is a chaep and worn down place, but what can you expect for 40 Euro including breafast in the best location in the city?
New Galaxy is at metro Rogier and right next to Sheraton, Hilton and Crown Plaza, on the edge of the pedestrian central district and 10 minutes walk from Grand Place. Yet the area is quiet at night and completely safe. So much for location.
The hotel is a narrow building squeezed in between others and with reception, WiFi and breakfast / TV room on the ground floor. Each floor has 8 rooms, all very small and only some with toilet and bath. If not, then you use toilet and baths on each floor. All is rather old and shabby, but it is clean and my bed was fine. I never had to queue for neither toilet nor shower and all worked perfectly. TV-set was old but worked also fine, having some 10-15 French and Belgian channels.
The included breakfast gave a choice of 4 types of bread, yoghurt, cereals, milk, juice, tea and coffee (several types of coffee from a machine). There was also fresh fruit. The staff was kind and helpful. No attitude or anything, just plain friendly.
So if you only need a bed to sleep in and a bite before leaving in the morning, this is fine. Its not like a 3- or 5-star place, but I stayed for 3 nights cheaper than one night in a standard 3-star place. So it worked for me.
