The hotel is in a dangerous part of the city thus a stroll around in late hours in not recommended especially if you are a female. The hotel itself as well as the room looked worn out, in need of renovation. The breakfast was very plain. On the plus side, the architectural style of the hotel is rather interesting and... More

Overall I constantly travel for work and am in hotels 3-4 nights a week clocking up over 150 room nights last year. I hadn’t stayed in or in fact been to Brussels before. I had booked the Manhattan Hotel because it was listed on our corporate system – so had limited choice. It was near the client I was working... More

I stayed here in march with 2 friends for a short holiday. We could only do 2 nights; it was terrible. Firstly the man on the desk was really creepy and anti-social and to make things worse there were drug addicts and alcoholics walking around. One was even smoking in the tiny lobby next to the vending machine! On the... More

This hotel is the worst! The only good thing about it is the location... The hotel smelled like smoke even thought it said that smoking wasn't accepted.. The room was dirty with hair in the shower, stains on the floor and on the walls - even on the sheet and pillow!! The closet wasn't able to be closed, which the... More

The hotel is very close to the city centre (around a 10 minute walk) and only a 5 minute walk from Brussels Nord station (for trains and buses). The hotel itself has a very old look to it. The carpet is old and a quite dirty looking. The rooms themselves are a decent size though. Again, here they could do... More
