I went to this branch having stayed at Sofitel previously in another country. Before I give any watch out for tips, I would like to say that the hotel and the rooms are just what you would expect from Sofitel.
Breakfast - its all or nothing. We wanted to order just a couple of things from the menu. It does say that you can order an intercontinental or american breakie and to select the options. We made a note saying what items we wanted on our room service form. In the morning we got delivered 3/4 of the intercontinental breakfast. We explained what it was that we ordered and asked for the rest of the items to be taken back. However the concept of toast wasn't even on offer. Really. When checking out, I noticed they decided to spread the cost of the intercontinental breakfast by charging 14 euros for a single glass of orange juice. I picked up on this and asked where they actually buy such expensive oranges from. To be honest, I would have appreciated some gesture towards the inconvenience we experienced that morning at breakfast not actually receiving what we ordered and having to explain to the room service assistant, bearing in mind we dont speak French well at all.
There is no dedicated or any taxi guaranteed to be waiting outside the hotel but you can ask the concierge and they will call one for you. Personally I dont see the harm in keeping one taxi always at hand for such a big brand hotel. Check the standard of the taxi if your keeping public taxi's outside. The taxi we got in was atrotious. We had to take it as we were heading to Brussels midi to head back home. The driver kept no space behind his seat so we were completely squashed at the back.
Every hotel I have been to has movies on order by demand. This one did not. Luckily they did provide us with a dvd player when we asked.
