This hotel is away from the city centre, but in the European quarter with good access to the subway, though. The rooms all had girls' names, and the elevator had LED lights, both of which were quirky. The room was decent, although the shower was a bit difficult in terms of keeping the floor dry. Perhaps more floor towels would be a good idea. The only big issue for us was the lack of a safe in the room, which is always an annoyance, but the clerk at the desk offered to lock them away in an office. In the end we left our things in the room and everything was fine. The breakfast was generous and varied, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was not great to sleep on, but we are really fussy about that stuff, admittedly.

Room Tip: A room away from the front of the hotel would probably be a good idea, if possible, as the street below was quite noisy late at night.

I stayed in Hotel Le Berger for three nights and found it to be a nice quirky hotel, until the final night. I returned to the hotel at 10pm to find that they had a singer in the bar downstairs, I had to be up at 3.30am to catch a flight, but hey this is a small hotel and they wouldn't have live music if it was going to disturb guests, would they?

The noise in my room on the second floor was at a level like I had a radio on, this wasn't good, but it's early and I think that it can't go on for too long. At 1am the music finally finishes...

I can't believe that the owners of this hotel would be so inconsiderate of guests.

A strange experience. The hotel has been renovated by an excellent designer to look as though it is on the cusp of Art Nouveau/ Art Deco and the rooms are all individually decorated. The use of dark wood, low lighting and red carpet and curtains in the corridors together with giving each room a woman's name as well as a number (they ran out and used the same names for corresponding rooms on each floor) suggest it is modelling itself on a WW1 bordello. This impression is further enhanced by the numerous pictures of unclothed women bordering on the erotic in the public areas. I would not want to stay there there with young children above toddler age as they would probably provoke questions one would rather not answer in public.
The breakfast is good and the reception staff helpful with excellent english. We were allocated room 106 and when I first went in and found it spacious with a spacious bathroom (we had paid extra for the superior room with additional space and a bath) and the attractive decor thought it was really good.
Then we tried to use it. There is no hanging space and no drawers just some hooks behind the door. We had small carry on weekend suitcases for our stay but also had large suitcases from our longer trip with us. This was just as well because the shelving in the room wasn't very wide and my husband's case took up the only shelf wide enough so I had to use the large suitcases as a shelf for mine. It was a heatwave and there was no air conditioning which was understandable because I doubt it's often hot enough to need it so we tried to open the window. This it turned out opened onto what one might think was a lightwell except that it was roofed with plasterboard at ceiling height and external examination showed to be an indendation of the exernal wall of the building which would be the party wall if the vacant lot next door were built on. Plasterboard had again been used to seal this of square but fortunately there were gaps between the board which let some draft in. The bottom of this area was filled with rubble and an old door and frame had been placed in it about 6" from the window so that at first I thought it was secondary double glazing.
Then we noticed there was no plug in the bath. The receptionist told us that housekeeping had gone home and she had no access and there was nothing she could do until the next day. (It was 4.15pm) were told they would be there at 7. At 7.30 we went down and were given a plug that was too small. We took it back. they found us a slightly larger one that was still to small but you could have a very quick bath whislt it emptied slowly.
The next night they moved us to 509. This had an "open plan" bath in a raised area. The room itself was smaller. The bath and washbasin were separated from the sleeping area by a pediment which was wide enough to take both small suitcases. (There were gain no wardrobe or drawers). There was an excellent bath plug. There were 3 outside opening windows, one in the sleeping area and one each in the bath and toilet areasand by judicious use of shoes to prop them open a through draft could be obtained.
The toilet was at the end of the bath with a door. Unfortunately it was impossble to use the toilet and shut the door. It was therefore necessary to make sure one's spouse was not in the seating area but at the far end of the bed and averting their eyes from the mirrored pillaster in order to maintain any level of dignity.
The television which was flat screen was not wall mounted but in a wallpapered box with a handle which you had to lift onto a table to use.
Both rooms would have been much improved by having a clasp on the bathroom wall to take the shower head and provision of a shower curtain. This would mean you would have had the option of usung the bath as a shower and the lack of a plug would not have been as profound.
If you like something that looks good you may well like this place. If you want something practical it is not for you.

The pros:

Interesting decoration, very nice bar, friendly service and and more or less convenient location.

The cons:

The hotel is over-priced for what it is. The room was small, no wardrobe and only one window overlooking a wall. There was no hospitality tray- this was an important problem given that the bar is not open 24/7. No toiletries really and soap dispenser broken. Breakfast was ok but limited selection, especially the lack of cooked stuff was rather unfortunate. The hotel's biggest problem is that is extremely noisy, we barely had any sleep during our 3 night stay. The noise from people walking and talking below and above us was really unbearable (this also forced us to close the window in order to minimise noise and no air circulation made our sleep worse). Of course, there is little that the hotel can do for an old building that suffers from insulation problems however there is one thing that the management can and should do: lower the prices.

Overall, this hotel has a potential but there are serious problem that need to be addressed, especially at this rate.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window on the front.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. A rather wonderful place modelled on a brothel theme. However it is not seedy, quite the opposite. Staff are helpful and rooms are good but all different. My room had no wardrobe and instead had hanging for clothed on the back of the door. OK for a couple of nights but not so great if you demand proper clothese hanging facilities. Yet I will forgive it this as the overall charm of the place is winning and seductive.

Staff are very helpful and do their best to give you whatever assistance you need and the breakfast is one of the better ones I have had in Brussels. Good selection of pastries, cold cuts and juices.

I also eat in the restaurant for one evening and the food was good and reasonably priced. Well worth trying.

It seems that after 2 or 3 years of visiting I have found the perfect little hotel. I will be back, many more times.

Room Tip: Go high and you get peace and quiet.
