We stayed here for 3 nights during a WWI tour. The room was small but the bed was comfortable. The hotel had a small bar in the lobby which many "budget" hotels don't. The hotel couldn't be in a better location, in between the Grand Place and the Place d'Heros. Lots of places to drink and eat near by. The front desk staff were fantastic. There was one girl in particular who was very friendly and helpful, even printing off extra copies of our itinerary from a flash drive one of our group had with him.
Parking was ok - there is a small lot close by but it fills up quickly, and you have to pay during the day. The WIFI was good although we found we had to "log in" constantly. Every time I picked up my phone it had lost my session and I had to fill in my information again. The room decor was dated.
The breakfast was ok but could have used some additional options, like eggs (even hard-boiled). If you don't eat bread or pastry, breakfast consisted of ham, cheese and fruit. The coffee was great though. We have found that coffee isn't always plentiful in France/Belgium, but the coffee machine in the breakfast room was excellent and they had "to go" cups available, a luxury us North Americans seem to take for granted.
