            location, breakfast and the fast wi-fi connection

            common parts look old

            Great location, just 10-15 minutes walk to the Royal Palace. Friendly and kind staff.

            The TV (30cm screen) was mounted 2,5m high in a 3m distance from the viewer. TV programs exclusively french and flemish.

            The hotel is two townhouses refurbished. It retains much of the architectural features which makes it quite pretty. Room and bathroom were large enough and comfortable. It is within walking distance of the main square, if you do not mind a short walk. Breakfast was fine.

            Parking can be an issue. We were fortunate and found parking on the street for overnight. We stayed one night and left before we had to move the car at 9 A.M.

            Congress and hotelroom in the same hotel

            In the restaurant : you had to slice the cheese by your selve.

          • Single
            5.4

            Bed was quite good. Good location, ony 15 min to the centre on foot and an underground station nearby.

            My room was not really that clean: it was a smoking room which can still be smelled in the curtains and carpet The shower didn't work properly. Water jet was weak for instance, not comfortable. Not that clean as well, hair from previous visitor still on the floor. Television very small (30 cm diameter). If you want to stay for one night, it's ok, but there are better possibilities in Brussels. For only 10 euros more, you get much more luxury.

          • Single
            7.4

            excellent location, cosy breakfast room, nice breakfast, efficient staff at the reception. very suitable for a business trip.

            noisy room - there was a constant annoying noise comming from a radiator and/or ventilation, did not stop for the whole night (even though it was promissed by the man at the reception when I tried to ask for another room). the room was extremely hot, because the radiator could not be switched off.

          • Single
            9.2

            Location, between eu Institutions and inner city. 24H reception.

          • Single
            7.8

            The free internet was good and available in my room Quiet and safe area, but close to some local pubs clean rooms, friendly staff, very decent breakfast

            It is not very close to city center, definitely 10 minutes of walking

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            I liked its interior and atmosphere. It is a good hotel.

          • Single
            6.6

            The hotel was very loud with clapping doors and adolescent guests awakening you easily. The room was quite small. All in all, poor value for money.

          • Single
            5.8

            Good value when you get a cheap rate (I paid 55 EUR).

            Very small rooms; breakfast chaotic (empty buffet and staff not fast at attending to this); staff is not customer-oriented at times: at breakfast I was told to sit down in the other room while the room I was in was empty (4 tables). At that time the other room did not have a single available tabel.

          • Single
            7.8

            The location is good close to the center and central railway station, the room was big (previous times was smaller), clean and didn't have this old, tired look of most hotels in Brussels. Staff is very friendly and helpful and breakfast was good.

            The wifi connection in the room was slow and second night didn't work at all, although I had specifically asked for a good wifi connection in the room since I need it for my work. The connection and speed at the lobby was good.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The staff was extreemely helpful, the room was spacious, comfortable and clean and the bed was cosy.

            The hotel isn't soundproofed.

            I was very happy that it was close to the place where I had to attend a meeting and also close to the center.
