“Hotel de Filth!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

The worst hotel room I have seen! Thankfully we arrived at 11.30pm and were out by 8am, meaning we were simply there to sleep. Yet, for 70euro you would expect, if anything a basic level of hygiene. The carpet was nothing short of disgusting, the bathroom a converted cupboard, and the electrical sockets dangerous. There are no other words that can describe Hotel de France, I would suggest viewing the pictures.

Standard of decoration and fixtures/fittings was pretty horrendous, cupboard doors hanging off, broken lights, broken fan, patched up ceilings etc. etc. When a new fan was requested or a replacement (as it was 33degC) three simple answers from the staff no, no, no. Then when I got home in the early hours of the morning the nightclub next door seemingly found the volume button which was just super. I was told on 2 separate occasions this is a dangerous area - be careful! And I was awoken to a very busy early morning Market underneath the window with lots of traffic and people. I would therefore advise no matter how cheap it is, avoid like the plague.

Good location (near Brussels-Midi station) and also bad location (lots of strange people around). Rooms are tiny and old but clean a totaly worth the price.
User name and pswd for wifi is your hotel room.

...if you want quality. The area feels unsafe. The only positive thing was that it was close to the station.

Rooms are small but clean. The entrance from the main road is not clean . Breakfast given is ok for the money we pay.
