Booked this for a one-night business trip because of the hotel's location, and thought "how bad can it be?" Well, really bad, it turns out. The hotel would be acceptable if it was a €30/room hostel, but as a €100/night *hotel* it is completely unacceptable. The whole place needs to be renovated, and preferably get new management. The downstairs area... More

The hotel is very well located, the staff is friendly, the breakfast was ok. I think that the location of the hotel is the best, it's close to the subway (so you can go and visit other parts of the city) and it's in the center. Ci è piaciuto molto questo hotel, è vicinissimo alla metropolitana e al centro. La... More

This small Hotel is ideal for a short break stay in Brussels - being so central. Less than 5 minutes to the Grand Place, yet only one block back from the Metro services on Boulevard Anspach. Staff are pleasant and welcoming. Speak to Reception to get their best prices - it is EXTREMELY reasonable. Taxi from/to Eurostar about E10. We... More

This hotel is old and dirty. Rooms urgently need to be refurnished especially the beds. Linens were burned out by cigarettes although it was a non-smoking room. The floor was so bumpy that I slipped several times. Breakfast was poor only one type of ham was available. The coffee machine could give only one type of double espresso regardless what... More

First stayed in this hotel in the early 1990's and it is fair to say nothing much has changed. The location is perfect - a minute from the Grand Place, 2 minutes to St Katherine, 10 minutes to the railway station and a whole host of restaurants literally on the doorstep. The rooms are clean but minimal though the beds... More

This hotel is a few blocks from Grand Place. It has seen better days as the carpet is well worn as are the bed linens and bath linens. Minimal furniture, tiny room, hard bed. Breakfast was sparse as well. I can say I will seek other accommodations on my next visit to Brussels.

This hotel is right in the center of Brussels night life. If you like pubs and evening buzz and you're not very picky then this is the right hotel. But if you want some peace and quiet then this is not the right place. also, the rooms and corridors in this hotel are very narrow. the breakfast room is also... More

Small hotel with small rooms, friendly service and excellent location -- Grand-Place is 300 meters away, nearest Metro station 100 meters. There are lots of restaurants, bars and shops around. The rooms are not exactly sound-proof so you'll probably hear your next door neighbor entering the room. On the other hand, as far as I can tell, they have recently... More

I concer with many other reviews regarding the great location in tourist central and the great value. The noise without air con was a bit of an issue but we survived. The only disappointment was the breakfast. There was never enough room to even sit and a pretty minimal selection. We preferred to get a pastry from a supermarket down... More
