I stayed at this hotel for two nights during the Brussels Beer Weekend in early September.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, only 2 minutes’ walk from the Bourse (which is the closest tram station if you are arriving at Gare du Midi), and about 5 minutes’ walk from the Grand Place.
We arrived at the stated check-in time of noon, and were quickly checked in. Checkout time is also noon.
As with all Ibis hotels I have stayed in (which is a lot), the room was small, but comfortable. If all you need is somewhere to sleep after enjoying Brussels’ nightlife, this is the perfect place to stay. The room had a small, flatscreen TV with an extensive selection of channels in multiple languages. The bathroom was smaller than most Ibis properties, with very little space. You would certainly struggle to dress in there, so you should consider this if you prefer not to dress in front of your travel companion. The bathroom had a hairdryer, although I found it wasn’t very powerful, so you may prefer to bring your own if this is important to you.
Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel, which was very helpful when we wanted to check maps and places of interest.
Breakfast is available at an additional change, but we decided not to bother with it. The hotel has a small bar, but we did not use this either.
The hotel has a luggage room, where you can leave items at your own risk (you ask the receptionist for the key). We did this on the day of checkout, and it saved us hauling our bags around town. If you prefer, the hotel also has secure lockers for a small charge.
There was some rennovation going on while we stayed, although this had no impact on our stay. We did not see or hear anything related to this.
I would happily stay at this property again.
