The hotel is located just a few minutes away from Gare du Nord, by the Jardin Botanique. The reception is small but the rom was perfect. Clean, decent size, everything you need, great modern/stylish bathroom, working wifi. Can't fault it. The staff was also really nice and willing to help in any way they can. I wouldn't hesitate to go... More

Don't get fooled by the map: in fact Retro hotel location is quite good. 10 minutes walking to the Gare du Nord (I was at the airport in 30 minutes), half an hour of relax walking to the Grand Place and may be 20-25 minutes of walking to the European institutions district. My pleasant surprise was the room: very big... More

Wow! This hotel is awesome! A hidden gem in Brussels! When I saw the room, I could not believe I had booked it for o only 54 euros per night, with VAT and city tax included! Great location (very close to Botanique metro station - same line as Gare du Midi - and with a supermarket right under it), within... More

Theres so many bad things to say about this hotel that is hard to put All of them here. So, as other clients said they cancelled the early bookings at a good price to charge more in the balcony for the same room to people that appears there. The receptionist was really unpolite and scream with clients. Really...avoid this place...theres... More

we were supposed to stay at this hotel for one night, but when we arrived there we were informed by a very impolite recepcionist, that our reservation had been cancelled, but they had decided not to inform neither us nor booking. and, of course, the hotel was fully booked, so no chance of giving us another room. We called booking... More

Great location, we walked everywhere from our base at the Hotel Retro. The room was nice, clean and quite modern with a kettle, tea, nice bathroom and great shower but no communal areas (that I know of, but we didn't need to use them anyway!). Free wireless in the room and a few english tv channels which was also good.... More

We stayed at Hotel Retro for 3 nights. We arrived late, which was no problem. We only speak English, which was also no problem. The front desk staff was very friendly & helpful. We brought the wrong adapters for our phones and they were able to lend us 2 for the duration of our stay. The 272 bus to the... More

I stayed here for two nights in November. It was quite difficult to find and a very small entrance and reception area with no much room to move when there's a few other people in there. Room is nice and clean, no problems there. After already paying for the hotel before arrival, the receptionist asked us to pay again. It... More
