“Great Flathotel, great time!”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

I had a very nice stay at AXL. I found it browsing the Internet and liked the look of the website. I stayed with my two children that had a great time playing in the very pretty garden. It was the perfect option for a 2 week holiday, at a very reasonable price for the great quality of the service. It is a shame that because it is not a hotel, the reception is obviously not open 24/7 and that blocks the entrance to the garden because it is the only entrance. The location is fabulous, Internet is free, and the extra services such as breakfasts aren't that expensive. The manager organizes from time to time barbecues that is a great way to meet people staying at the same hotel, and to have a great time. I would definitely recommend this flathotel to families, or even to a group of friends that prefer not to eat out all the time and prefer having their own kitchen.

The hotel staff was very kind and friendly , the room was very clean and well equipped. Will definitely come back.

If you need more than a basic hotel room in Brussels, this place might work. We had a large unit-- big LR with pull-out couch; kitchenette and thru a separate (door) BR. It was clean and one, long, (hilly) block away from posh Ave. Louise. There is no lobby to speak of and if you want to check in before 12, there is a 30 euro fee (providing your room is free). Service is good. The Great Synagogue (on rue de la Regence) is not too far,as are the museums of the Grande Place. Quiet at night and on weekends but is near a noisy school during the day.

For my job I had to be in Brussels for a couple of months. Too short to rent an Appartment for your family and too long to stay in a hotel-restaurant. A colleague tipped me this appartment hotel.

Very close to the centre and in a silent area. And that's right. It is only 300 meter from 'Women's shopping paradise Avenue Louise' and 100 meter from a very nice square with pubs and restaurants called 'Place Ferdinand Cocq'. The Metro station 'Porte de Namur' is on10 minutes walk while the International South station of Brussels is only E10,-- with a Taxi away. The European parliament and all the offices are just a god 15 minutes walking away.

The appartment was very nice and well furnished, only the bed couch in the living area was at the end of its lifecycle. This one may be renewed. The kitchen is fully equipped with 4 cooking plates, a microwave, toaster, coffee machine and water cooker.

The Bathroom has a double lavabo and a good sized bath. The toilet is in a separate room.

In the appartment is free internet, only the connection is not so briliant due to the fact that I had the last room in the corridor. There is a direct telephone line as well. The Flat Screen television has many channels. There is a DVD player as well.

The bed is a king size boxspring which sleeps very well. Only sometimes the cover was smaller. I think that some appartments have smaller beds.

It is a nice appartment hotel that I can recommend to everybody who stays in Brussels for more that one week.

I surely come back when I have to be in Brussels again.

I had a very pleasant surprise staying at AXL-Flathotel: the place is much nicer than you would think from looking at pictures you find on various websites. The flats (I had the opportunity to see a few of them) are spacious, clean and luminous. It is too bad that the furniture is sometimes a little worn out (a kitchen cabinet door did not close and a floor tile was broken). The quality in relation to the price is very good, I find. The staff is young and multinational. They are very helpful and it is a pleasure to deal with them, particularly the people at the reception. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, and since I have travelled in quite a lot of countries, I can certainly compare.
Next time in Brussels, I know already where I am going to stay!

This apparthotel mainly caters for long-stay guests: some people are permanent residents. But you can stay for just one night, as I did. I have stayed in many Brussels hotels but this one is a definite "must go back". The room was spacious, modern and comfortable. I liked the way it was divided by a partition giving the impression of a bedroom and a separate lounge diner. It had a real bed, not a sofa-bed like many apparthotels. And it had really nice staff-helpful, friendly, caring. I arrived after the reception had closed (it operates 9 a.m.-6 p.m., like an office) but Ida the caretaker arrived within 2 minutes of my call and helped with recommendations on places to eat and arrangements for left luggage for the next day. When I came to collect my case at the end of my day they gave me tea & biscuits! There is no onsite catering but some nice places close by. And this was a very good value stay.
