Business trip. Great position, right downtown, surrounded by restaurants of any kind and with an underground station at 50 meters. Service war poor, at least in my case: I was given a room that had clearly not been cleaned after the previous occupant had gone and the porter insisted in going to check (while giving me another key right away,...

The location of the hotel is great, is very close of Central Station and is located in a street of restaurants. Also is very close some Brussels' attractions like Grand Place, Town Hall, Manneken Pis, Royal Palace, Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, Palace du Grand Sablon, Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula, Rue de Boucher. However, the room is very small,... More

If you are seeking a bargain room at 79€, easy walking distance to all of central Brussels and don't require frills, this hotel is great. We spent 2 nights and would come back. The rooms are not fancy but warm in January with excellent water pressure for the shower. Free WiFi that worked fine and free breakfast in a small... More

The room I stayed in was clean and the location is OK, in a sometimes noisy street a few minutes away from Grand Place. These are the best things I can say about my stay. The room was tiny and sad - desperately in need of modernisation. And there was a plastic sheet underneeth the bed sheets. Eeew! The breakfast... More

A budget hotel in central Brussels. Located close to Grand Place. Small rooms, narrow single-bed. Reasonably clean. In house wifi that doesn't work, at least not in my room. Much noice from the streets outside till very late at night, and the again from early morning. Polite receptionists.

if you wish to be a night out and close to Grote Markt in Brussels centre, then this is great place. But do not expect a great room for view or space. Breakfast is poor, also consider not to spend too much time for doing things in the hotel. So basically it is nice, but really for spending the night.... More

This is a very picturesque Hotel located right at the heart of Brussels. It's true that the Hotel is bit old but this is something compensated by the friendliness of the Staff working there. Breakfast was very average but enough at the end.

This hotel is located in a central area of Brussels, however that is all it has going for it. The room had an awful smell about it which I detected came from the drains in the bathroom. The breakfast was very average

Me and my friends stayed in this hotel during Spring break! And it was magnificent! It was safe, centric, comfortable, the romos were perfect! Just as a pinterest picture! And most of all the breakfast was GREAT! If i visit Brussels again definitely would stay here! The train station is blocks away as well!
