Very convenient, clean and inexpensive with friendly staff. So what if the rooms are a bit shabby? I go back year after year. Avoid a front room if you think the noise from the square will bother you. The breakfasts are fine and include fresh croissants and breads. You can get BBC World News and Bloomberg on the TV. The...

I have booked a room at la Madeleine since it was the only central hotel with availability during a congress. I had an Executive room (4 people - the only type available). It was literally at the ground floor, with large windows on a pretty crowded road and easily accessible by the view of the people passing by. Very noisy,... More

This hotel urgently needs a renovation - everything is run-down and does not look fresh anymore. Thus, the price was too high for the low value. On the positive side, the location is great with just two minutes to train station and to Grande Place, with a quiet room and with a breakfast which was o.k.

I checked the reviews before staying at this hotel and have to say I am a bit surprised by some of them. I stayed there for 4 nights and got what I paid for. It is perfectly located for just over 80€ a night for 2...I don't think you can get such a deal in Paris or New York. Rooms... More

A couple of things to share for people visiting Brussels in the near future. The hotel is excellently located. Right in the heart of the city. Easy access to everything: metro, bus, restaurants etc. The breakfast is very mediocre: Cereals, ham cheese and bread. Not worth the payment to be honest. You would be better off having breakfast in the... More

This hotel is in fantastic location but could be so much better. Our double room was very cramped and bathroom clean but needs updating. Heating was overpowering and didn't seem to be able to turn it down. Ended up opening window through night to get a bit of air in room. Lack of wardrobe space too. Room was at back... More

It was our first visit to Europe and Brussels seems to be a nice and very peaceful town for us. We had a long flight and luckily in a very short time we got this hotel and check in very soon. At first when we were at the counter during the check in, because we have all our valuable stuff... More

The sad thing about this hotel is that it is very outdated and tired. This is so sad considering the fantastic location for central Brussels. Although the staff were super friendly, the attention to any detail was sincerely lacking- for example a cloth or napkin to hold the bread or a fork to put the cold meat or cheese on... More

Great location but claustrofobic rooms.. No air con, looks and feels outdated and a shared toilet. Definitely a budget hotel, unfortunately no rooms available to upgrade so had to stick with the smallest one...
