“Very tired and worn out”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I am not exactly what this hotel is trying to accomplish by its worn out and extremely tired interior design. While I can assure I don't know from first hand knowledge, it is reminiscent of a movie depiction of a 1920s Parisian house of ill-repute. No doorman to greet guests, no offer to help with bags to go to the room, and a staff that seems completely indifferent to guests' needs.

I can't quite figure out why anyone would book this hotel--the rooms are dated and the tassled furniture in them is laughable. I would ignore this property if at all possible.

Room Tip: I'm not so sure that they exist.

Spent one night here & that was one too many. Room was meant to be non - smoking but stank of smoke. Half the lights did not work. Room was on 1st floor; lots of noise from party in conference room. Overall overpriced and very disappointing.

I did not expect to plug in the TV myself in a very dark room and find tape holding the remote together for €228 per night.

Neither did I expect a room opposite a conference suite with a party going on until past midnight. Although my room was no smoking, the conference room across the hall was clearly full of the Cuban cigar appreciation society. My room filled with a choking smoke. Finally the party finished and great now I can sleep? No, the staff then spent the next 2 hours banging and clattering around the place tidying up. How inconsiderate for a hotel!

My only positive comment is that the TV had both BBC1 and BBC2.

Room Tip: stay at a different hotel

I stayed at Warwick Barsey since my business colleague was also staying here and sure wish I had spent the time reviewing first on Trip Advisor. While some of the recent reviews were good, I wonder if we were staying at the same place.

I found the place quite creepy upon first entering because very dark and not at all appealing. Front desk help was fine but then things went south quickly when got into my room. The room was somewhat small, the carpet was a bit grimy, there were stains on the wallpaper (yes, wallpaper), the sink had a big crack in it, the sink drain was loose, and the tub had big chips / dings. My business colleague shared that a cotton ball was used in his room to hold the temperature gauge together. Hey Warwick, I have some scotch tape if you need any help with maintenance.

The final capper was around midnight the person in the room next to me turned their TV on and kept me awake all night. So I used the time wisely and jumped on Trip Advisor and found Hotel Bloom (see my very favorable review of HB on TA) and was sure glad I switched.

As others noted, the location of Warwick was also not good. Somebody noted that the Grand Place was 'very close' but not the case. HB is much closer to the Grand Place. One interesting aspect of the location is there were a few hookers along Louise. They were actually fairly good looking so perhaps Warwick should advertise that because I suppose the quality of the hotel would fit that business model.

In summary, the only reason I did not give the Warwick a 1 star rating is a couple of times in life I have stayed in much worse places but one could argue this hotel should be rated a 1 star.

Room Tip: Do not stay here, go to Hotel Bloom.

A clean rather old fashioned hotel with good service and comfortable, spacious bedrooms. I thought the breakfast was expensive and the hotel too far from the center although there is a good tram service from the hotel

This hotel was perfectly located just a few blocks from the Grand Place and right in the heart of the older part of the city. Then if you want some action you can easily walk to some main streets where you can find lots of pubs and bars. The hotel itself was really nice with good mattresses and luxury bedding. The wireless wifi didn't work and we had some trouble getting it without having to pay extra....but in the end this was minor. The staff generally were very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. We will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: There was construction happening on the street right outside our window which started at 7:00 in the...

A very quiet, clean and old-fashioned hotel that provides good value for money, in what may appear, on a map at least, to be a good location in Brussels (Ave Louise). Don't be fooled by the location. After 7PM you could roll a bowling ball down the neighborhood's main streets and not hit a thing. No bars (at least ones that were open) no restaurants, no nothing after dark. Basically you are a couple of tram stops away from the action, even for a quiet dinner, or a pint. Fortunately the tram stops right out front.

I was upgraded to a superior room for a 10 day stay and found the room warm and cozy and rather large by Euiropean standards overlooking Ave Louise. The internet was free (a real bonus in Europe) but the fitness room was ratrher stark with only a couple of ageing and second rate machines. Don't bother - go for a run instead.

The staff was helpful and good spirited, though the hotel bar was mostly deserted emphazing the need to find people and places out of the nrighborhood. I would stay again for a short visit but anything over a couple of days and I would find a more lively location.

Room Tip: A superior room is good value
