There were only two towels and one bar of soap when we arrived in the room. I think the room should be painted again. The pillows were made of duck feathers and I don't like pillows made of feathers and have allergies. I slipped in the bathroom because of the shower's edge. The room was cluttered and the blankets too... More

Cheap, and not in the most central part of town, but a short walk to 4 or more tram lines. The neighbourhood is apparently a "bad" one but I didn't encounter any problems near the hotel. It was also very quiet at night. For a person travelling solo on my own dime it was decent. The room was hardly amazing... More

I spent 2 nights there and i chose it because of the price. It was the cheapest one with a private bathroom. The lobby bar was very clean, tidy and modern, but the room itself not. There is a big LCD and this is the newest thing in the room. There was heating and two single beds. The window handler... More

We went away for a few days with my husband. We were looking for a cheap but decent hotel. Well.... I wouldnt call this place a hotel. It looked ok on the photos but its more like a hostel than a hotel when u actually get there. Everything is very old, furniture, bathroom, tv..... Our bed was broken and just... More

I stayed at La Potiniere for three nights for 40€/night in a single room. The hotel is very close to the railway station Schaerbeek from which you can go directly to the airport. However most of the airport connections and to other Belgian cities are departing from the Brussels centraal, North and midi which are much bigger stations. The hotel... More

This was the cheapest hotel we could find. Since we only needed to spend one night in Brussels before our flight, we decided to give it a try. Everythiing in the room except the TV is pretty old. But it looked clean enough though. The internet was not reliable, in and out. They served us good croissants and coffee for... More

This place hotel was WAY below average, the location was also a bit far from the city center and we had to change 2 trams to get there! I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone! However, the price was ok, since Brussels are considered to be a relatively expensive city to stay and the man at the reception was very... More

We had 13 rooms for our youth group. Double rooms were of a really good standard for the price range whereas tripples and quads were relatively less inviting (two of them having been smoked in by the former residents) and more worn down. Breakfast was fresh bread and croissant - with butter and jams. Major advantage was the reception staff... More

Our room appeared recently refurbished. New shower cabinet ,faucet. New painted walls, new floor tiles. The flatscreen tv had many european channels, wifi worked well and there where plenty of electrical outtakes to charge mobile phones and laptops. The immediate surrounding of the hotel was not very exiting but only 5 minutes walk away there is a busy intersection where... More

The cost was Euro 120 for 2 nights for 3 persons, so effectively, 20 per head per night (including breakfast). I shouldn't have expected much, so was not disappointed at all, rather pleasantly surprised. Although, I was told that this tariff was available because of low season. I had booked the hotel, even after reading the reviews about the hotel.... More
