The hotel is very close to the centre of Brussels. It is a bit run down and the rooms could do with a bit of TLC. The staff are friendly enough and the food adequate. If you are only coming for a day or two and just need a bed that will do but don't expect too much.

This hotel is just off the Place Rogier (which as of June 2015 is under construction). There is a metro stop right there, it is close to the Botanical Garden, it is a 5 minute walk from Gare de Nord, and an easy walk to most other places. The surrounding area is full of office buildings, a big shopping mall,... More

The hotel is brilliantly located between the city centre and the North Station (which made it easy for us to catch trains to other places we visited in Belgium). Also, there are plenty of supermarkets, take aways and restaurants nearby. We stayed at the beginning of July when the temperature was quite high (over 30C) so the room got very... More

My family and I spent 4 days in this hotel and we found it very comfortable. Our room was quite cosy and the bathroom was very large. The stuff was always very kind and patient. We didn't have breakfast included because we thought it was very expensive, but the rest was OK. It has been a comfortable stay!

Second time I have stayed here. Once again it provided a good location near the centre within Brussels for the cost. Rooms were clean and service was good. Had a triple room facing inner court, was quiet. Only complaint is that the taste of the coffee from the machine at breakfast required attention. This was sorted by the third day.... More

I spent one week in this hotel, chosen only based on its position. No money for value. Rooms are old and basic. Mine had only one power supply (half broken) under the desk. A second one was in the bath and only worked with light on! Some rooms are bad smelling. Actually I had got one, but fortunately they agreed... More

Bed really uncomfortable, it liked dirty, TV was not working, not enough electric outlets plus the electric outlets avail were dangerous to use because they were exposed. Would not stay there again minimal service for the price. It's also about 20 min walk from the grand place.

A bed, toilet and a small tv. Do not expect much. Something to keep clear: check the price in advance, it is not what says. Rates are arou 100€ and depends on the date. Nowadays a few metrez from the entrance the road (Rue de Croisades) is under construction and closed.
