“Best choice for short-term stays in Brussels”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

In my opinion, AXL Flathotel offer the best short-term, serviced apartments in Brussels.

The rooms are big, clean and modern, there's free wi-fi, great location in a cool neighbourhood, and the staff are really helpful and friendly.

It's the only place I stay when I have to visit Brussels and I always recommend it to friends and colleagues.

I stayed at the AXL for 8 days in November 2011, and have only good things to say about this place. Well maintained rooms, with a daily cleanup and free wifi. Rooms have all the basic amenities, kitchenware was more than adequate too - with a microwave and a refrigerator.

The location is brilliant - two market streets (the high profile avenue louise, and the budget shopping Matonge area) run parallel to the hotel. Fernand Cocq is the nearest bus stop, and this served as the landmark for us for cab instructions. The central station is only about 5-7 min away by bus.

The hotel is run by a Bulgarian lady, and the staff was very polite and helpful.

I think it would be difficult to get a better value for money stay in this location. Recommended.

PS: call the hotel and bargain for the rate, you may be able to get a better deal than booking straight off the internet (we did!).

Hotel was much better than I expected.

I had a street facing studio that most hotels would describe as a "suite"! Room had large comfortable warm double bed and separated by a wall was a living area with couch, desk and large flat TV. A little kitchenette and bathroom rounded it off.

I was in Brussels for a conference at the EU and it was a short, easy to find, 15 minute walk. There is an express bus to and from the airport (30min/€3 each way) which was very handy.

Staff at the hotel were most friendly and accommodating and really I can't say a bad word about the place. I'd definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: There is a lovely garden at the hotel and I'm sure a room facing it would be quieter. I had a...

I must say that it is difficult to find a clean and not so expensive hotel in the heart of Brussels but we were really surprised when we discovered AXL Flathotel! Clean, specious, comfortable rooms, nice garden view, excellent location and above all very kind, ready to help staff. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

I stayed in a very nice apartment in the attic. Great courtesy and attention from the reception staff able to recommend places to dine or shop to buy souvenirs.
Overall, the assessment is very positive.

Very roomy, nice bed, the bathroom and kitchen are very nice. The location is quiet and close to the 71 bus stop in one side and to avenue louise in the other.
The staff is extremely nice and helpful.
On the other hand, It is a bit cold and not well isolated (but that is very common in this city).
There's free wifi, but is not at all high speed.

Room Tip: Pay extra and look at the garden, I think is worthy
