“Great hotel near Midi Station”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Conveniently located near Midi Station with free airport shuttle. Sensational architecture / interior design. Particularly like the bathroom with natural stone and a good range of products. Breakfast and service are memorable. Loved staying here.

Located just away from the centre, about 15 minutes walk from La Grande Place and set in a most unimposing building, is this dark, stylish boutique hotel. DON'T wear sunglasses when you walk in as it is wall to wall black wood and dim lighting! Charming front of house reception and an expedient check in and we were off to our 4th floor, executive room. Spacious, well appointed and totally monochrome, it boasted a very comfortable king-sized bed, luxurious bathroom, small seating area and the usual accompaniments you would expect. The TV was too small and the bathrobes cheap and threadbare, which was unpleasantly surprising but worst of all was the non-existent air-conditioning! With the room key in it's slot, it gave out a feeble amount of cold air which was insufficient to lower the temperature below warm. However, take the key out and when you return, it's a sauna. In this day and age - that is totally unacceptable. When I spoke to the concierge, they sent somebody to check it who confirmed that it was working fine!! No - it wasn't! Final moan was the staff; not the quality of them, as they were all charming and helpful, but the quantity! None anywhere - roof terrace bar was unmanned and we sat there for 20 minutes at 6pm on a Friday, desperate for a drink and the hotel bar was deserted by 10pm. Real shame - could be so much better.

Room Tip: 4th floor executive seem to be the best

Dear Guest,
We are pleased to read that you appreciated the charm of our hotel and your Deluxe room.
Indeed, the card needs to be in the slot for the AC and the light to work, it’s an ecological way to save energy, sorry about the inconvenience.
The staff is working his best way to keep the customers satisfied.
We are hoping to welcome you again for your next trip to our lovely capital.
Kindest regards,

Decorated in black and white throughout with a touch of lime green in places,this hotel is convenient for Midi station. It is located in a pleasant little square with eating places. However the area as a whole is not very solubrious and there was a lot of litter strewn around the streets. The room was a good size, staff friendly and helpful.breakfast good but impossible to get hot coffee.The other downside was that we spotted a mouse in the bar lounge on two different occasions!

Room Tip: Rooms not at the front are very quiet

And so it was that I found myself arriving very late one night via Eurostar into Brussels to visit a client a 30 minute local train ride away.

Be Manos is a high quality, boutique hotel situated close to the railway station, with the explicit purpose of serving a community of travellers, just like me, who want a high quality room for the night.

The hotel sent a shuttle to pick me up from the station, which was helpful since it was after 10.30 at night and I didn't know the area. In fact the hotel is less than five minutes by car. It's neatly secreted in a little square, but the surrounding area isn't so presentable. That's not the hotel's fault: It's where it is so it can support Brussels Midi travellers, and it does a brilliant job.

The hotel is beautifully appointed, with a big, modern, clean and comfortable rooms, and an interesting design motif, featuring a range of portrait photos that identify the outside and inside of rooms. I loved it.

Thanks to the complimentary wi-fi, I was able to work, and then I had a great night's sleep.

The next morning, enjoying the sunshine, I walked back to the station, which took me about seven minutes.

If you want somewhere stylish, high quality and great value, close to Brussels Midi Station, look no further.

This boutique hotel close to Brussels Midi train station was a very nice experience. While not a specialist, I could see the care and attention that went into the design and architecture of the hotel and its rooms. The rooms were surprisingly large (particularly for Europe). My only requested addition would be a fitness center. I would recommend this hotel to anybody.

I decided to stay at this hotel since it was close to Midi train station, from where i was suppose to travel early in the morning, and i did not want to call a taxi.

Although the entry is small, the rooms are big and very nice decorated in a modern, yet very cozy style.
Big, comfortable bed, very nice furniture.
Extremely clean.

Although it is a stylish hotel, i did not appreciate very much the neighborhood.

Overall a very good hotel, a minus for the location.

This is a really nice (but very boutiquey) hotel. Not as close to Brussels Midi station as we had hoped and at night time not really an area to wander about in. However, the hotel itself is clean, well staffed and trendy...if a bit too modern for our tastes. We ate their too and the food was very tasty but a tad overpriced for what you get - 8 euros for a beer and 24 euros for a burger with a slice of processed cheese slapped on top! We elected to stay in rather than brave the neighbourhood (this was the evening before the 'shooting' and the place was crawling with police vans). To be fair this has no reflection on the hotel itself but is a consideration if you are arriving later at night - get a taxi!
