I have just returned from this hotel, after staying for 3 nights there, on business. This is definitely one of the best hotels in Brussels that I have stayed at (And I have stayed in most of the luxurious hotels that there are in that city, including The Hotel which is just across the street from this one).To start from the reception desk- the staff are extremely kind, attentive and helpful, fast in checking the guests in and nothing that you ask for is too much of a trouble! They gave me another room as the one that they pre-booked me for had a garden view (as some kind of an air-conditioner or water tank below the room was too noisy), thereby giving me a street-view room, so that I could have a better-night's rest. (The windows are well insulated and quite sound proof so that the noise from the street will not be much of a trouble). They also provided an additional blanket, in case I needed it and several bottles of water.The room that I had was a luxury category room (as I was a part of the State delegation) and it was indeed luxurious! They know what women need - a spotless clean room and bathroom, an iron, ironing-board, special separate bags for clothes and shoes disposal, special satin-covered hangers for your delicate shirts, a good hair-dryer, a make-up magnifying mirror, Hermes toiletries,more than 6 towels of different size, good quality slippers and bathrobes, coffee and tea making machines, a complimentary bottle of water every night, sheets changed every day, a fluffy and incredibly comfortable bed... I do read other people's comments and I was horrified when I read that towel rail was over the toilet??!! Come on, people, there is a partition wall between the bathtub and the toilet in case you did not notice, whereby the towel rail is above the bathtub, on that side of the partition wall and NOT on the side where the toilet is! In my humble opinion,the only hotel bathroom that could beat this one is definitely the bathroom in the Splendid hotel in Budva, Montenegro (that one is made of marble all over and has both a bathtub and a shower even in standard rooms, with all the above-mentioned additions and even several more). I had the best ever sleep and I simply loved the room. Well lit and air conditioned too. The mini-bar is rather basic though, but it is free of charge in a luxury room. Wi-Fi is free of charge too and available in rooms. As I have already implied, the housekeeping service is excellent and the room was thoroughly cleaned and made-up. A safe deposit box is also available free of charge and it is big enough to put your 15" laptop computer there.
The only fault that I can find is that breakfast is not really something that you would expect from a 5 star hotel- service in the restaurant could be faster and better, and there are no eggs (of any type - scrambled, boiled or sunny-side-up) served at breakfast - you actually have to pay additionally for them - that is what I found ridiculous as all other ingredients that make continental breakfast were included - bacon, cheese, salami etc.
I did not have time to go to the spa or even ask for it, but I am not even sure there is any. If there isn't, massages at least would be a welcoming addition.
All in all, this is an amazing hotel, I will grab the first opportunity to go back!!!
