Galia is in a good location - 10 minutes walk from Gare Midi on a square that hosts the open air flea market every morning. Plenty of bars and restaurants around but quiet in the hotel. My room was small and basic (shower very small) but clean and comfortable. TV and Wifi. Reception friendly. Breakfast was good. Its been hard... More

First things first, if you arrive at Midi it really is only a 10 minute stroll to the hotel but if you arrive by the bus from Charleroi bear in mind you get dropped at the rear of the station. We found out the hard way but hey ho! Hotel maybe is a little run down but our room was... More

We traveled for just the weekend to Brussels and chose Hotel Galia bc of price and location. It is just about 10-15 minutes to the center touristy area (mannekan pis statue basically). Cozy room (#25) with clean amenities. The shower had just been re-done, very nice. Only complaint is that the door handle for the bathroom was broken, but not... More

We were in Brussels for the first time and found a tiny little place to stay with very nice rooms and very good service in a very interesting quarter (Marolles). Only wlan access was a little bit difficult. We will come back again.

A budget hotel that can only be described as 'Bohemian'. It was shabby, it was last decorated a long time ago, it was noisy (at times), and if the staff were any more laid back, they'd be horizontal. That said, I loved it! I wouldn't change a thing, and the next time I visit Brussels, I'll be going back to... More

In the middle of Brussels. A small hotel with small but clean rooms. The restaurant serves very tasty Belgian meals at night. Nice helpful people. Parking in a garage on 5 minutes walk. Just 10 metres out of the hotel the famous Marollen fleamarket starts.

We stayed at hotel Galia in November 2014. The hotel is in a rough part of town. I didn't feel safe walking around at night. During the day it was pleasant and the Place du Jeu de Balle flea market is right outside it. The breakfast at hotel Galia is overpriced and doesn't look worth it. Although, the little cafe... More

We were there for one night, 8/9-8/10, 2014. We stumbled upon this place after wandering around the adjacent antique market held daily at Place du Jeu de Balle. We were desperate for accommodation, literally dragging our suitcases around. I asked to see a room before paying and the owner was not so keen, acting as if it was SO HARD... More
