The Hotel is huge!! Has a nice kitchen and is very easy to arrive from the center. The common area near the kitchen is may be a little small for so many people but the kitchen is nice. Very clean bathrooms too Check out time is to early (max11am) and check in to late (from 3pm)

The hotels in Brussels were completely booked due to a Seafood Expo: the hotel charged €233 for the room - it's not worth more than €85 tops. The beds are uncomfortable although the bathroom area is clean and modern. If you like fresh air, then avoid this hotel: windows don't open. There are some good restaurants within a 10 to...

Meininger Brussels was a wonderful place to stay. The room was well organized and clean and the design of the lobby area was artistic and well done. The staff was stellar and super helpful with suggestions. The only main issue is the location near a lot of loud construction and how separated it feels on the West side of the...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. Had a family room to stay in the basement. The room was large. Attached bathroom and w/c were maintained very well. The checkin was quick and the staff were friendly. The buffet breakfast is ok and we felt it is value for money. Grand place is about 10-15mts walk from this hotel....

Great facilities- hair dryer, body wash and face wash in rooms. Clean and comfortable, great location. Hostel had a games rooms, bar, communal kitchen and elevator was a plus. Staff were very unhelpful- besides one. Many of them would sit at the desk and act like it was an inconvenience by asking a question- or would simply ignore you. Inconsistent...

So rooms are a decent size and thought that the style was pretty cool. The bathroom was split into three separate rooms (sink, shower and toilet), and we had a set of bunk beds for the kids and two singles for the adults. All seemed good. Now the bad.... Room very hot with inadequate ventilation, the second single bed very...

Visited the Meininger in July 2016 with 4 friends for 2 nights. We had a 6 person private room, with private shower. Have to say the facilities were just as listed online and were excellent, everything was clean and modern, comfy beds and a great working shower. Plenty of plug sockets around the room as well for charging! Towels were...
