It is nothing of spetacular, but overall is a good hotel providing a confortable stay. I would consider it again if I return to Brussels. The location is not the best as it is a little far from the centre but it is very closely located to the tram that goes directly to the centre.

This is a very good, clean, comfortable and well priced hotel with a car park. It's in a quiet, off-the-beaten-track location but the locality is pleasant and well served by buses and trams and the metro's a 10 minutes walk. Breakfast was excellent too.

Can't handle rooms with cigarrette smell... Or maybe to old and humid. These a very average place to sleep. Not friendly staff in the breakfast area. The tranvia to the center was close, but you need a good map to go to the center when you leave the tranvia. Good luck

This is a great place to stay if you do not have to be in the most central part of town. It is within walking distance of the Grand Place, but it will take about 30 minutes. An alternative is a tram stop next to the hotel. Within a few minutes walk you will find two small grocery stores and... More

At the end of our trip, it was necessary for us to fly out of Brussels, Belgium, so we booked an overnight stay at the HC Brussels. It was somewhat remote from the old city area and the airport (60 euros taxi), but we enjoyed staying at the hotel. The staff was accommodating and helpful in minimizing our travel times.... More

We stayed at HC Brussels for two nights. We were on a vacation, Brussels being one of the places we toured. The hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city and we wanted to stay in such a place. The city centre can be reached by a 15 minute tram ride. The tram stop is a... More

Nice room in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood, but not very close to the old city. It is kind of close to the Brussels Midi Station, and there are quite a few cafes around the hotel area. Room was clean, average.

HC Brussels is excellent value for money. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms, though small, are pleasant and spotlessly clean. For €10 you can get an excellent breakfast. There is a small bar. The hotel is conveniently situated being in reasonable distance from both Gare Midi and the old city.

Nice welcome, fair prices and a well presented room but oh so hot! You can see the exterior floodlights on the main picture, one of which lights room 509. The room had AC which produced a lot of noise but little cool air. The heating thermostat cut in at 26 degrees C. I don't know why they bother with a... More
