Reviewed January 19, 2013

Took advantage of a special deal for January 2013 when booking this hotel. I did so with a little trepidation knowing it by reputation before refurbishment as a 'maison de rendez-vous'.

Refurbishment works really well, its modren and comfortable whilst keeping something of its history. Room was small but cosy with good size bathroom, no wardrobe but in reflecting its past perhaps a 'maison de rendez-vous' did not need wardrobes.

Nice bar/restaurant on the ground floor and good breakfast. Free Wi Fi that works.

Central location close to Metro and great for business trips, well places for the European Institutions.

This was a good hotel with an interesting history and themed rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, a little quirky as the bath was just inside the door in a small corridor before going into the main bedroom. There was a separate combined shower and toilet. The room was not particularly big.

I would stay there again, but some people mighty not be happy with the theme.

I loved this place. Its themed on the brothel it once was - highly amusing and tastefully done. The rooms had everything I needed - great shower, good wifi, cable tv. Rooms are very small. No problem for me, but some may find that an issue. Great breakfast buffet.

Its up a grubby backstreet, with quite a bit of construction work in progress, although don't be put off - this part of Brussels is very safe. Load of eateries nearby.

Its a nice little hotel in a convenient location for those in work trips for the European Parliament / Commission. The hotel is very special, with a funky decoration, and although my room was relatively small it was quiet and clean. The staff was nice, well above the Brussels standard. Breakfast could certainly be better, but was just ok. Excellent free internet across the facilities.
The hotel location is excellent for a business traveler to the European Brussels. It is close to the European Parliament, close to the metro and just around the corner from a shopping street and the restaurant and bars of St. Boniface / Pl. Londres. The hotel street itself is a bit quiet and dark but it's only 60 meters walk from a busy street and the area is rather safe.
All in all, expect a basic hotel with some glamour, in a convenient location. Good value for the price.

This really is a quirky establishment. I had a room on the first floor that was big enough for me (but then I had paid for single occupancy of a double). I did not like the obscured glass window, the substantial amount of noise coming up from the street (people until midnight, then a concrete pumping truck right outside the window at 7:20). I found myself scratching some bites on my leg on the day after my stay, but this may have been a coincidence. As other have said, it would be nice to have a choice other than sitting on the bed when using a laptop.

That said, I found the staff very obliging, the bed comfortable, the room warm when the weather was cold outside, the breakfast good, the presentation (although a bit heavy for my taste) to a very high standard and the wifi excellent.

If you book with Booking.com watch out for the map - it isn't quite right, but you will find the hotel if you keep your eyes open.

It is tempting not to send too many people there as the prices might change...but I cannot gush enough about how much I liked this hotel. It is clean, has a funky decor, the breakfast was wonderful, fresh croissant and great choices, the rooms clean, and at least (Blanche) was bright, really comfortable bed, great bath. I had drinks and snacks at the bar at night, wonderful staff and ambiance. It is not far, but far enough, from the tourist areas, near to the underground, cinemas, shopping, great restaurants, and the road behind the hotel is where Audrey Hepburn was born. The one bad thing I can say about the room was that the mirror was buried into the wall behind the sink, impossible to put makeup on, and there is no closet, but that did not matter to me as I never use them anyway.

Nothing spectacular. Although the breakfast was good, a hotel room was extremely small and a bathroom was awful! All dark which for that small room is unacceptable.
People at the front desk were neutral, but they didn't allow me to stay a few minutes longer in my room even that I was waiting for my friend to pick me up.
