The hotel itself is situated conveniently less than 10 minutes walk from Brussels impressive Midi/Zuid railway station. Its located in not a nice part of the city, and while it was fine to walk to and from in daylight, I would recommend using a taxi after dark.
Our room was a family room, which was clean and spacious. It looked like it had had some refurbishment and was satisfactory for our needs purely as a base. The room had climate control which worked well. This was very handy as we had to close the windows at night because of a noisy fair situated opposite, that went on until the early hours every night - if you are a light sleeper beware! TV in the room very limited, with BBC World News the only English speaking channel. However, the free wifi was excellent with great connectivity.
Breakfast range was fine, with typical continental selections. We went down around 9am and it was always very busy, but never had to wait too long to find a table.
Reception staff very polite and obliging, helping us with tips on how to use the Metro and get to certain destinations.
Another plus for us was the games room. Free use of pool table, Xbox and Mac Computers for kids and adults alike! (credit card has to be left with reception as security for any damage). Really nicely decorated room as well.
All in all the hotel served its purpose for us for our break in Belgium. It is not a plush hotel, but if all you need is a comfortable base for bed and breakfast that is clean and tidy, and you are aware of any potential fairground noise, then I would recommend this.
