Very clean and comfortable with multilingual staff. Close to Brussels airport. As hotel is converted prison, the room was not much bigger than width of double bed but was well furnished with enough wardrobe space and power sockets. The bathroom was a good size and had a bath with shower above. Breakfast is good but there are no other meals... More

I stayed in this hotel last weekend and found it surprisingly good. Yes it is built in an old prison but it has been very nicely done up. My room had a super comfy double room with a quirky headboard :-) The bathroom was nice, modern and clean (although they could have used a bit wider shower screens, as they're... More

On a recent four week trip through Belgium and France, this unique property may have been the "best" hotel we stayed in....and we stayed in several nice four stars or charming three star properties. A converted prison, the rooms here are massive in size, high ceilings, very technical and modern re the lighting, lots of ledges, huge bathrooms, etc etc.... More

We stayed here on a business trip visiting our Belgium office next door, hotels don't get much more convenient than that, although you'd probably need to have business close by to stay here because Vilvoorde didn't really strike me as a tourist destination. The hotel is beautifully decorated with exposed brickwork and clever lighting, the breakfast/bar area isn't huge but... More

This hotel was interesting to me because it used to be a prison a few hundred years ago. I don't know how long it remained as a prison, but the hotel renovations kept a lot of the original brickwork, and had artwork depicting noteworthy inmates. I chose the "comfortable" single room, and it was roomy. The bath fixtures were a... More

We stayed here for almost a week. The hotel is converted from an historical prison and is decorated on this theme, so the rooms are fairly Spartan with neutral decor, plain and simple equipment and a sort of gimmicky decor in the corridors-it's all black and dark. The floor levels are staggered and with the darkness you might get a... More

All rooms are clean and comfortable and the WiFi is excellent. Breakfast is complimentary and perfectly adequate. No evening meals in hotel but plenty of restaurants in Vilvoorde (though watch out for Monday nights when they all seem to close). The Gym is basic, but does have a rowing machine and the TV's have a good range of French, Dutch... More

When booking room request for room on top floor, they are very spacious and beautiful rooms. But be warned there is no aircon and it can get very hot. A fan is available on request though. Opening the windows is not an option as outside its full of mosquitoes waiting to feast on you! There is free water in the... More
