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

I needed a hotel to crash after coming over from the Eurostar quite late for a meeting in the next morning. This was one of the few affordable options left and it was quite close to the Brussels-Midi train station. So I booked it. It was easy to find, and close to the station. But I didn't know that the...

Stayed here, Tuesday night, this week, for one night, was having a difficult time getting a hotel near brussels centre (grand place), and this was one of a very few options available, (its just near the Brussels South Station (Du Midi) which is a short hop on a train to central station or short taxi trip.

The hotel is superbly located next to Brussels Midi and easy to find. The rooms are large and clean. Breakfast is very good. The staff are helpful. Although the décor is a bit dated this is reflected in the price. The amenities are good-free Wi-Fi and modern t.v. A great jumping off spot to base yourself to explore both Brussels... More

I know we are not exactly talking about the luxury end of the market, but in comparison to other places around Europe, this place is pretty poor even at this price. The first room offered (booked through Hostel Bookers) was terrible (a very definite and instant yeuk factor) and it took a bit of persuasion to get to see other... More
