4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Pleasant hotel, clean, and walking distance to all attractions. The service desk was very helpful. The beds were very comfortable and rooms were quiet. Bathrooms very clean and modern, we had a good stay and I'd go back there.

Room Tip: wifi cuts out all the time, have to put in the code every 10- 15 minutes. Otherwise quite a good...

I stayed here almost a week for a course I was taking in Brussels. The wifi was sorely lacking, would go in and out constantly, but otherwise, the room was comfortable. The Staff at the hotel were excellent and responsive. The location was great for what I was looking for. Breakfast was very nice, but the same every day, a little variety would have been nice.

Bad parts - horrible room, very small, soft bed, very dirty carpet, non existent internet.
Good parts - Bathroom average, breakfast good.
Would not recommend staying here for the high price charged.
Deserves a two star rating.

I have had a pleasent stay at thuis hotel. Nice rooms and a good breakfast. The location is very good with the shopping street around the corner and the grote markt and manneke pis very close. Although it was a bit expensive it was really worth it.

We’re glad we chose Marivaux Hotel for our 4 days stay in Brussels. We took a train from the airport and from the train station, it took us 10 minutes (with suitcases in hand) to find it. Although our room’s decor was a bit dated, we love that it was spacious (including the bathroom) with generous closet. I also love that we have in-room tea/coffee facility. It was clean and quiet but the mattress was a bit hard for my back while the pillows were too soft. With many hotels cutting on bathroom essentials, Marivaux still provides shampoo, body wash, lotion, including cotton buds and shower caps. The free wi-fi was quick and fast. Based from our experience traveling in Europe, hotel air-conditioning can be a challenge and I am glad the hotel's A/C is working fine. Its convenient downtown location was a great help for first timers like us. I won’t hesitate to recommend Marivaux Hotel for people wishing to have a taste of downtown Brussels.

Nothing special, but good; a fine hotel when you just need a comfortable place to stay, very central, near train and subway stations etc. Don't go here if you're looking for a romantic spot. The price was good (€ 70). Don't eat breakfast here for an extra €15, just walk out the door and pick one of Brussels' great cafés.

Marivaux was honestly the best (and cheapest) hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip in Europe. The staff was incredibly helpful — they gave us directions and suggestions, even told us how to use the metro kiosks.

The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the grand palace, or a 1-minute walk from 2 metro stations. Close enough to walk, but far enough that it's not in a very "touristy" area.

The rooms were nice — clean, air conditioned, and the wifi worked great! We even streamed a movie one night when were fighting off jet lag. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the bathrooms. Of course this is still a European hotel, so it doesn't have some of the luxuries you might find in an American hotel (i.e. king sized bed, huge rooms). But the value was absolutely unbeatable. We would stay here again.
