Stayed there for one night with a group of friends during our visit to Brussels. The Hotel does look pretty creepy from outside but our room was clean and we had nothing bad to say about it. Even though our window was from the side of a busy street and train tracks we had no trouble sleeping. Wi-fi was also... More

We stayed here after deciding at the last minute to stay over in Brussels. We were on a tight budget and needed somewhere near a railway station and this hotel ticked both box's. The hotel itself could do with some refurbishment but for the price paid I was more that happy with what we got. If you are used to... More

The hotel is very close to Brussels midi train station, which is convenient but not the best area as it is a bit of a walk to the centre, although you could use the metro instead . The room was as requested and reasonably priced and was clean and comfortable with daily room cleaning. The staff were friendly and helpful.... More

this overnight stay was not planned, but after the thalys stopped in Bruxelles due to a technical problem and everybody had to start looking for a place to spend the night and I ended up in the Continental. Which was very run-down, has a very rickety elevator, large but dirty and dusty rooms and a meagre breakfast. However they still... More

Perfectly located, next to the Midi train station, it was an amazing spot to start exploring Brussels (we have been there for one night). If your are looking for something affordable, a normal room with bathroom, that,'s the spot. Wifi not working properly, breakfast not included.

It would be easy to be critical of this hotel as it needs a thorough makeove, but it has charm and represents very good value in this expensive city - and I liked it. The location, near Midi Station, was ideal for me. The rooms look untouched for 50 years but they are cared for and the high ceilings make... More

I was looking for a reasonably priced room to stay overnight near the railway station. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, lukewarm heater in the room and no heater in the bathroom did not make my stay very pleasant (middle of December). I had an impression that various austerity measures (no stopper in the bath tube, weak heating, worn... More
