Driving into Brussels, running late for a dinner booking and with stress levels mounting, the Hotel La Legende could not have been a better choice. When looking for a hotel for our short stay, we wanted something central, cheap and with parking, so that we could maximise our time knowing the car was safe. The sat nav took us directly to the hotel, and we drove straight through the archway on Lombardstraat into the haven of the courtyard. The receptionist came out to meet us and we were parked, checked-in, changed and en route to our dinner booking just ten minutes later.
If you are travelling with a car, it is well worth pre-booking the parking as there are only two spaces in the courtyard.
The room was to a much higher standard than we had expected, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The hotel itself is a little worn around the edges, but being just two streets away from the Grand Place, is superbly located for sight-seeing. And the super-efficient staff were a delight.
