The hotel's location is in a little bit of a rough area (by rough, I mean, there was graffiti in a few locations and the street had a generally untidy feel about it), but I have seen far worse and this didn't greatly put me off. The hotel is close to a metro station and is about a half hour... More

I stayed at Hotel Retro at the beginning of June 2015. The hotel is small, but cosy, charming and pleasant. The receptionist (young lady) was very helpful and kind. The room was small, but well-equipped. The breakfast lounge is a little work of art. The only thing that I felt uncomfortable with was the neighbourhood; in the evenings it seemed... More

Rooms are clean, modern and well equipped (include working table, a small fridge and a kettle). WiFi throughout the hotel is really high speed, and it is placed over a small supermarket, which is very practical for fresh orange juice and croissants. Bus 272 takes you from the airport, but it is not reliable for the return trip.

As per title the location is optimal. Not very far from the metro line 2,6 and at walking distance from Brussel nord rail station (and bus hub). Place Rogier and the center are still reachable with a good walk (or 1 metro stop). The price is honest. The hotel itself could help with a refurbishing but the rooms are clean... More

The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from the Nord bahnhof (which is a very sketchy neighborhood dressed with prostitutes and drug dealers). Altstadt(Mitte)is about a 10 minute walk across town, but there are street cars a block away if you don't like walking. The hotel is not in the best neighborhood, there were people protesting the Bahn... More

This hotel is located near the city center in Brussels. It is within walking distance of many of the places to go and see or do. The rooms are actually a little bigger than most European hotels, the king bed was comfortable, the room was very clean, and the bathroom was very nice. There was a little fridge in the... More

the Hotel is placed not so close to the city center (but it's not far cause you need only 10 minutes on walk). Anyway you could reach it very quickly with metro (stop is very close to hotel). I've found very useful the supermarket near Hotel that let you able to provide everything you could neet during your holiday. Reception... More

Although it was a just one night stay I really enjoyed this hotel. I arrived very late and got good attention, quick check in and just proceeded to sleep! Reasonable price, friendly staff and good room.Will definitely recommend.

The location for this hotel is very central for both Brussels Nord and Midi/Centraal Stations. The centre of town is a short walk away. I was only here one night, but would have liked to stay longer. The rooms are recently refurbished. I found my room a bit stuffy on arrival, but having the windows open for a while helped... More
