This was a truly excellent boutique hotel just off the Avenue Louise, slap bang in the centre of Brussels.
We arrived, frustated, having fought through Brussels' rush hour. Within minutes, we were checked in (I speak fluent French, but all the staff have passable, if not fluent English), had enjoyed an introductory chat, taken some advice re our dinner plans, and the staff had confirmed a booking on our behalf (the hotel has no restaurant)-'Le Chou de Bruxelles', easily walkable, reviewed elsewhere, and were freshening up in our rooms, which were spotless, well appointed, and, if not the largest in the world, were perfectly acceptable, with particularly wonderful showers.
Over the next couple of days, nothing was too much trouble, I asked for reservations to be made, for travel advice around the city, the staff checked opening and closing times for me, lent me a needle & thread (but offered to make the minor repair I needed to make themselves), kept the bar well stocked and open, and finally found me a specialized local shop for a particular gift. I really cannot recommend this hotel enough for a short break, but I've left the best 'til last:
THE BREAKFAST (included): was absolutely unbelievable!.. 0700-1000 on weekdays, and 0800-1100 on weekends, this simply has to be seen to be believed!.. If one were determined, it would be possible to enjoy a 3 or 4 course meal!'' Scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms & tomatoes, followed by ham & cheese, followed by a selection of yoghurts, granolas & cereals, followed by sweet rolls, croissants & waffles, toast, jams & preserves, fruit juices, fresh fruit compote and the most wonderful coffee (I don't drink tea abroad), and other guests made special requests from the lovely lady in charge, and nothing was refused!..
A wonderful hotel, well located, catering for the discerning traveller-not the cheapest, but definitely one of the best...
