The room was good, and clean. The district a bit dirty, but close to Grand Place and very close to the station. The staff are helpful. The bathroom is very small, but enough for one person. The hotel was good for this price.

Car got broken into, glass was shattered, lots of shady people. Bad part of town. Room was tiny, elevator was big enough for one person. Water takes 10 minutes to heat up. No parking. I definitely wouldn't stay there again

The hotel is good for 1 night stay if you need to accommodate there to change the trains or plane-train. Not really good, the patience is required. Very strange district, 10-15 mins away form the Grand Place, and 7-10 mis from Manneken Pis. The breakfast was included into our rate and good too. Free Wi-fi was a nice compliment. The... More

I really wonder why booking.com includes this hotel in their search results. It was the most disgusting experience of my life. Really filthy hotel, very old and dirty. The rooms had damages that were never repaired/rennovated (broken doors, holes etc). When we got in the room, bed linen was touching the disgusting carpet (has not been cleaned/changed since ages!).

Title says it all really. Stayed there for 2 nights and by the end of it I had welts all over me. Staff seemed not particularly fussed, although the receptionist upon check out let me off payment for the 5 euro breakfast charge!

I stayed because Euro was canceled. I was disappointed there was no coffee or tea facilities in the room. No restaurants attached or that I liked near by. Breakfast was good. Room was clean I had difficulty opening the door some time.
