Our family (all adult) stayed in 2 separate rooms over 3 nights and can attest to other reviewers opinion that it is in a good location, has a bit of character, large rooms and easily the most accommodating and friendly staff I have encountered for a while. The breakfast was ok and there did seem to be more choice than others have stated. My only slight complaint is that the shower curtains probably need changing. Overall - great value and would definitely return.

I stayed here for a couple of nights a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprise by the quality of this hotel.

It is centrally located and right next door to a tube station (Rogier). Furthermore, the Gran Place is just a 5 minute walk away.

The Hotel itself is modern and the rooms are large and spacious. Free wi-fi is also available whilst there is a gym, albeit a limited one located in the Hotel as well.

Breakfast is slightly disappointing without much of a choice and in fact only had it there once.

Overall a very comfortable stay which will be repeated.

I stayed there twice. Both times were very pleasant, the rooms are cosy and clean, the staff is very nice. The bathroom has everything you need so you don't need to take much with you which is very important if you travel just for 2-3 days. Every time my room was quite spaciuos. The hotel has a unique atmosphere and is not just an average chain hotel, I like its history. It also has 3 BBC channels - which is nice for me as I don't speak French :)
The only thing I didn't like was the coffee, but you can always drink it in nearby bars. As the location is very convenient. My place in Brussels definatelly!

I returned to the Marivaux again on business. It was even better this time as I had a room at the rear of the hotel with absolutely no noise. The rooms are very well equiped and large, twice the size of a room in Paris.
This year they have added a fitness centre. Great!

This place was booked for me and I was dreading it- my last experience of a Brussels hotel was dreadful but no fear I was pleasantly surprised. Very modern clean decor throughout, exceptionally helpful staff and close to a Metro station and lots of fabulous restaurants. I highly recommend it and certainly won't bother seraching around for hotels any more next time I have to stay in Brussels!

So I checked into this hotel after seeing its trip advisor award winning hotel accolade. I was a bit disappointed.

Pros:
- excellent location (close to the train station and metro lines as well as the Grand Palace)
- cordial staff
- decent room

Cons:
- One small towel provided (not a bath towel which was old and a little ragged)
- no iron available (they only have 3)
- no late checkout option (checkout is rather early at 11, I asked for a one hour delay)
- few English speaking staff.
- very ordinary breakfast buffet.

Management needs to up their act otherwise it could spiral downwards. Good luck!!
