Located on a busy corner, hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the Grand Plaza; 20 minutes walk from the train station. It is very close to a metro stop. Rooms are large, airy and comfortable. The lift is a bit old and small, but serviceable. Overall, the hotel is a little dated and could use an upgrade but a... More

We were looking for a cheap hotel for 2 nights close to the center and Midi station. Hotel Mirabeau was a good choice. The Grand Place is in walking distance, the Manneken Pis is really close to the hotel, bars are just around the corner. The room was OK, but there was a weird smell in the bathroom, it was... More

It was the most horrible experience i had for ages. When I arrived the room had been given to someone>. The money paid to budget places has been taken and not yet refunded. The receptionist was dodgy and even gave us 20 euros to get a taxi...Is it dishonesty? He blamed Budgetplaces.. What is sure Is that I will never... More

This hotel would have been a good value if not for the bed bugs we found crawling on both beds. =( Other than that, this is a recently renovated place, although hallways and stairs remain a work in progress. The gentleman who checked us in was welcoming. He took the time to explain how to use the local transit system... More

I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of April. This hotel is advertised as a 2*, and I have stayed in far worse 2* hotels than this. I arrived nervous, having read some reviews telling stories of cat pee smells, and views of garbage chutes and whatnot. However, I arrived and the reception area looked fine, with no... More

I spend here just 1 night time ago . I was really busy, and i had to stay near "gare de brussel" - train station. The stay was ok, quite and personal was also ok. I came here late evening and stayed in lobby working on my laptop.

Cheapest option when we booked with a hostel booking website, when you take into consideration there was a free breakfast included in the price. You get what you pay for - cheap and cheerful! The staff were friendly - spoke English perfectly, and even humoured my attempts at French, bless them. They provided a Eng -> EU plug socket converter... More

Lobby and small eating area are combined & look very simple. Lift is provided but it's very slow. I didn't have a good... More

At 90 Euro's per night, it was appalling. The first night we got stuck in a tiny double room where the door only opened 1/3 before hitting end of bed. But absolutely the worst part - the bathroom overwhelmed with stench of MOLD. The ceiling above shower was covered in black mold and one couldn't stand to remain in there... More

We stayed here near the end of our travels round Europe for the past month. Unfortunately the Hotel Mirabeau ranks as our worst hotel visited. On arrival you notice insulation where the ceiling is missing, Is it just falling down or being repaired? but over riding this was the strong smell of cat pee. The decor was old and tatty... More
