The hotel is situated in a convinient location, but in an old building, near the North railway station, near bus and metro station and just to a walking distance from Grand Place and BD museum. Near the hotel there are a lot of restaurants and shops. The entrance hall is huge. The rooms are modest, but they are clean. The... More

We stayed there as part of our global journey package for tomorrowland. The staff spoke English and were friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean but it didn't have the option of room service. The bathroom was small but again very tidy and big enough for 2 people. The big windows on the room are great to be...

I’ve chosen this hotel due to a booking problem (on our side) for another hotel in Brussels. Thus, I was rather happy to find a last-minute hotel close to the city at a moderate price. Actually, the hotel shares the entrance with the Siru hotel (which was sold out on that specific night). However, my room in the Hotel Des... More

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

This Hotel is near place Rogier (tram-metro), near the building of the EC and 5 min walking far from Gare du Nord trainstation. Wifi was very strong in my room, very clean room and the breakfast is super. Polite service and near my work.

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
