Love this place. Edward is very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Situation near St Catherine is excellent for travelling around Brussels. Room large and clean with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is a treat - great fresh bread and croissants accompanied by good strong coffee, from a seemingly bottomless pot! I would not hesitate to return to Les Ecrins the next... More

I was here back in 2011, and still remember the wonderful man at reception named Steven. He always greeted me in the morning and knew I liked my coffee (he would bring it to me without asking since he knew the answer was always "yes"). I don't know if he still is there, but even if he isn't, I am... More

Loved this hotel. Edward was very kind, helpful and can offer good travel tips. Had an issue with one room on our first night and he immediately moved us. Room 124 in main building (double) was stylish and spacious. Room 120 in next door building was perfect for a family of 4. Large bedroom with a double and a sitting... More

From the first contact I had with Guy on email, our experience with Les Ecrins was delightful. I spent a great deal of time looking for the "perfect" place to stay in Brussels (i.e. reasonably priced, in a good neighbourhood within walking distance of the city sights, appealing and attractive) and Les Ecrins checked all the boxes. The name means... More

I have to say I was surprised at how crowded and dirty the main tourist strip in Brussels was. We got off the train and walked to this hotel and I wasn't feeling great about my choice. Then we got to the lovely St Catherine's square and found the hotel and everything was immediately good again. The service was quick... More

Located in older building on a very quite side street, this is a small hotel/B&B with NO elevator tight steps and lovely rooms. I booked a room with a private bathroom (ensuite) and was very happy. The room was nice and the bathroom modern, Edward the owner is extremely accommodating and does his best to make your stay memorable. European... More

I loved this place-- though I was initially surprised because I booked through Hostel World and expected a hostel, this was so much nicer than a hostel. The two men that were running Residence les Ecrins were so friendly and helpful, and really talkative which is always a plus when you're a solo traveler. The neighborhood was really nice and... More

We loved Residence Les Ecrins and would highly recommend it to everyone. Our stay was 4 nights, April 2014. The location is excellent, easy to get to/from via transport system and fantastic for walking to anywhere in the city, approx 10 minutes front the Grand Place + 2 metro stations within 5 & 10 minutes walk. We had a spot... More

The residence is a very good solution for staying in Bruxelles, it is really close to the centre and one minute walking from Saint Catherine metro station. The hotel is on a small street, very quiet at night, and it's close to a zone rich of beautiful restaurants.

Definitely recommend. We stayed for 4 nights in December 2013. The room we got comprised a living room and a bedroom on the ground floor, with a private bathroom and bathtub. Very clean and spacious, high ceilings, absolute pleasure to return to after a day out walking. Very helpful staff and the proprietor is very funny too and greets us... More
