Booked this hotel very last minute as part of a Eurotrip. Arrived at reception only to stand there for about 10 minutes whilst the man on reception completely ignored us. Eventually we were spoken to and given our room key. As we had heavy bags we were shown to an old creaky lift and left to find our room. Upon... More

Stayed in this hotel as part of a university trip. As others have said, the place is quite dingy, unkempt and dated. Our room, which I shared with 3 others, had a view that faced inward to what can only be described as a concrete well. Again, as some have said, I can imagine it was very nice and posh... More

If one word sums up this hotel its "Dated". The lifts feel like they were last maintained in 1980 odd and the interior looks like it last had a face lift in the 1920s. My room had ripped curtains and a shower which was virtually impossible to work. Very dark room with windows facing onto a interior dirty courtyard which... More

The Hotel Manhattan had extremely dated decor, finishings and a dark interior. The rooms smell of smoke and the breakfast is acceptable. Unfortunately it is not great and the price definitely does not reflect the bad quality of stay! It is in quite a good area though, with the town square just a 10 minute walk! If you are looking...

Hotel is very old and the items that includes, like bathroom towels, bad (falling apart), mold in bathroom and dust on everything. The service is AWFUL. Especially the night-shift (fat, old, bald Monsieur) he is very arrogant and rude. My group was denied access at 3 am. because we were loudly in front of the hotel, from his point of... More

Stayed in this hotel as I had gone with University to visit Belgium. The hotel is located in near center of Brussels and hardly a 5 minute walk to the Grand Palace Belgium and many places are just so close by. The rooms were just decent enough. The hotel i believe is pretty old with very old elevators in it... More

Our group of 47 students have recently stayed in this hotel. Although some of the rooms were basic and very small - the hotel was clean with amazing location only 5 minutes walk to Grand Plaice. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast good enough.

We were meant to stay at this hotel from 7th- 9th December but we just couldn't stomach it for that long. We left the same night we checked in. The foyer was stale looking, dark and like something from the old age. I asked for a map of Belgium (as we went predominantly for the Christmas markets) and was told... More

We stayed at Manhattan Hotel for two nights in December '14. It's situated just north of the city centre at Rogier station. From there the Grand Place is only two tram stations and the Atomium is also reached easily. The hotel itself is quite old, using the elevator is a risky adventure and the rooms are no different. The beds... More

The only advantage of this hotel is the situation, in the city center, 10 minutes to Grand Place by walk and 5 minutes to Gare du Nord. For the rest, the hotel is poor, you have the sensation that the cleaning have not been done on the morning, the door of the room is not very safe power outlets to... More
