I stayed at this hotel for my first trip to Europe in July 2013 with my mom and my sister and it did not disappoint.
It was confusing when we got to the hotel for we had to go to the Marriott hotel next door to check-in and gain access to the apartments. Good thing I read another's review on this website before choosing the apartments and knew what to do. A couple good things of having the Marriott hotel next door was that we were able to utilize the amenities present such as the pool and the fitness center which they did not have at the apartment.
The room was bigger than what was expected especially for the price and the notion we previously had of European hotels (smaller rooms). There was a kitchen with a refrigerator along with two bathrooms so we did not have to worry about waiting hours just to use one. One bathroom was located near the entry of the apartment and the other was located through the bedroom so it was helpful if one had guests. One thing that confused me was the glass screen that covered part of of the bathtub to prevent water from escaping onto the floor. It did not stretch the entire length of the tub so I felt kind of exposed. One downside of staying at the apartments is that they was no free wi-fi in the room. One would have to go to the lobby of the apartments to take advantage.
All of the front desk clerks and other employees were very helpful from exchanging money to finding local stores to finding local things to do to helping out with baggage. I do not speak much French but most of the individuals who worked there spoke a good amount of English so what I needed help with was heard without a problem. They did what they could to make our trip the best we could have and greeted us kindly when we entered the lobby. They also allowed us to wait in the lobby after checkout for our ride who came two hours later and held our baggage until we were ready to go.
There are many nearby sites for one to see. We came during the week that the new king was to take over so there were many people outside celebrating. Also, the Palais Royal (Royal Palace) was not too far of a walk away to join in the festivities.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you looking for a place with a good price, with more space, and accessibility to a lot of different sites. I would put this on my list when I visit Brussels again.
