Anyone dealing with the EU will end up visiting Brussels at least once in their life and could well end up visiting on a cold Sunday in November.
Plus points - very close to the Metro (but make sure you take the right exit). Very close to a number of the EU builidngs and not too far to walk to Place de Luxembourg where you might find a bit more life!
Also clean and comfortable - and quiet. Minor bugbear of mine in that it took me a few minutes to work out how to switch the lights on (the card needs to be pushed in hard). Quite secure - the lift and some ground floor doors need a room-key to operate. The breakfast was fine. The staff suitably helpful and as ever had good English.
What I didn't like. OK it's pricey (about 150 Euro/night) but hey I wasn't paying. However, this is a hotel in Brussels, centre of possibly the finest range of beers in the known Universe. And what did the bar offer? Stella. I ask you. Not that there is anything wrong with Stella but guys, please. You can get Stella everywhere. When I'm visiting I like to drink and eat local. A couple of good local beers would make a big difference and would have secured my expenses as opposed to the bar 10 mins down the road.
Other than that a comfortable, clean, modern, bland hotel. Could have been anywhere.
