“For hipsters only!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

I had just one might here this week in a city that I don't know. You can tell its very cool - maybe trying a little too hard - but friendly reception. Everywhere is kept quite dark and that included my generous sized bedroom. It was well equipped but being monotone in shades and with the dim lighting, it wasn't a great way of keeping your spirits up in January! Probably good fun to go with friends and try out the restaurant and lounge area. Less good for business.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for one night and I must say that this hotel has it all.
The interior of the hotel is really amazing and a lot of effort has been put into the smallest details.
Even your glasses for your toothbrush are stylish (and the same as in the restaurant)
The room we had was really big and was filled with original furniture. Large LCD TV, nice bath, convenient bathroom and lots of space everywhere.
The bed was perfect as well with nice small moveable led lights for reading at night.
The restaurant where we enjoyed our breakfast was also decorated and furnished with a special eye to design.
A special thanks to the hotel staff who were very friendly even at 3AM when we came back from a party :-)
The only negative point of this hotel is it's location, which is close the the train station (very convenient) but as you might know those can attract people with less good intentions.
Just don't show off with pricy tech stuff when walking in the neighboorhood of the train station and never leave something in the car or use the car park.

Dear guest,

We are very pleased to hear that you are happily satisfied with your stay, especially with our service quality and the comfort in the room. Your positive comment will be transmitted to the team.
We regret, however, that the hotel and the neighborhood environment not given full satisfaction. The location of the hotel was chosen for its practicality especially with Eurostar Thalys stop and metro station within 100 meters which gives direct access to municipal transport, national and international.
We hope that you had at least a good experience in Brussels and we wish to be able to welcome you back a next time at Be Manos Hotel.
Kind Regards,
Merav abergel

A wonderful hotel within easy walking distance of the Eurostar terminal. Only ten minutes from the Grand Place and perhaps fifteen minutes from St Catherine's Dock and all it's fine restaurants. The hotel has a very friendly atmosphere with excellent service from the front desk to the creative cocktail specialist at the bar. The breakfast wasn't included in the price but at less than 10 euros it was good value.
Brussels is blessed with a plethora of good hotels, several of which I've visited, but if you find the Be Manos, you won't want to stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: They are all good and unaffected by noise. The ones overlooking the front have a better view.

The location is underwhelming, but was chosen because it was on the right side of town for where we needed to be (we were visiting friends for a birthday celebration), they also accept dogs (big bonus) and is a design-led hotel, always a plus in our book. It turned out that the hotel is over-designed, they really tried too hard, but the rooms are very large with a sleek design. We avoided breakfast the first morning thinking we could find something better and less expensive nearby, but came back disappointed. On the second day we had one of the best breakfasts we ever had in any hotels. In short, great hotel, poor location.

Stayed at this hotel recently to attend a concert at the Expo centre as part of a package booked thru Eurostar.

It is very close to the Gare Midi and a free shuttle is offered - it's only a few minutes away. This location is very convenient for exploring the city and close to the Metro at Lemmonier & Clemanceau, although you see much more of the city on foot.

The style of the hotel is very modern and very comfortable. Amenities in the room are fine, although no facility to make tea/coffee.

The service is impeccable - I am always impressed by an ability to switch between three languages with ease!

Considering the style, comfort & service, the room price is very reasonable, however the food and drink are more expensive than expected so dining outside the Hotel is probably a good idea.

If I have occasion to visit Brussels again, it will be on top of my list.

A little out of the main tourist areas, but close to metro and Euro Star stations, Be Manos is a great hotels. Our room was perfect, we had lots of space and the facilities were fantastic. All of the staff were really helpful. We had bed only which is actually perfect in brussels as there are so many great cafés to head to for breakfast.

My Partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in May for a birthday treat.

The location was close to the Euro Star and easy to find.

The decor was incredibly atmospheric and the reception team were always polite and friendly.

We chose to have the tasting menu in the restaurant downstairs, which was a slight let down. The food was ok, but for the price, nothing special.

The bed was comfortable, and room stylish and the bath was incredible!!

All in all a great experience and would go back.
