“A good alternative to Park Inn by Radisson”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

One of the new hotels rising around the Gare du Midi. I stayed there because I needed a hotel next to the station and Park Inn was fully booked. Still, Cascade Midi proved to be a good alternative. First of all, it's squeaky clean and comfortable. Rooms are spacious, bathroom is also very nice.
What I didn't like was expensive internet access. Finally I decided not to use it (I needed only half an hour, no reason to pay a daily rate), but others were not impressed with the connection.
I had a breakfast at the hotel restaurant and it was sufficient. No idea about the dinner menu.
Obviously the neighborhood is not impressive, but one can't blame the hotel for its neighborhood.

Room Tip: Make sure that you are not getting the room with windows on Avenue Fonsny.

modern hotel across the street from the Midi station in Brussels. Ideal to get to Bruge and Gent. We could walk to the Main square, but, chose to use train. 5 min from station. HIghly ethnic area as are so many train stations. Lots of options for middle eastern kabobs and such with a grocery store on the same street.

clean and modern. comfortable stay. would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel as a last minute option and a treat. However the photos made the place look amazing. What we received wasn't. We were charged for parking which a normal car would struggle to get down to and normally blocked in. The room was suppose to be a large room but felt very average considering your paying a premium. Basics such as Internet is an extra, no coffee making facilities and bathroom has a funky smell.

We stayed on a Saturday night and felt very unsafe outside in the area. Its next to the train station and location is a bit rough.

HOWEVER the bed was amazing! Best nights sleep I have had in a very long time.
The next day when we opened the window there was a HUGE Sunday market which was brilliant and made up for the previous night.

Overall we wouldnt stay here again.

Room Tip: The hotel is next to the train station and in a bit of a ruff area. We didn't feel safe there at...

Where should I start ? Maybe with the hotel :D Nice, comfortabe but that about it. The reception staff was friendly. Internet cost 12 € extra not good. very big rooms a plus. The view from our room was scary, empty half torndown houses all around. there is no nice reception were you can sit and I'm not sure I would want to anyways. Could'nt find any nice place to eat dinner so went into the trainstation and bought fast food and stayed in the hotel all night. When we tried to look for the busstop to charleroi (the reason why we choose to stay in this location) we were disgusted by the surroundings and I was very close to throw up several times. This seems to be the place for homeless people to live and use as a toilet. they are even encouraging this behaviour with an ecotoilet outside the trainstation. but many people seem to like having a poo on the walls of the tunnels that we had to go trough to get to the busstop. garbage everywhere .Just absolutely disgusted. Even in the hotel they have locked front doors and signs warning about thieves. But the good thing is that the hotel is superclean and ok inside and it it close to the busstop. But if you have children or want to go outside and stroll around Brussels I would choose another location and take a taxi to the busstop if you are leaving before the trains start to go in the morning like we did 4am. Would not recommend anyone to be out walking that early in the morning around that area. Surrounded by homeless people drinking and shouting wherever we turned and I was very relived when I was on the bus without stabbwounds or robbed.

Excellent choice for example if you travel to/from Brussels Midi train station and stay for 1 night. It's really nice hotel with high quality and affordable value. The room was perfect, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was quite good. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's located not so far from the Grand Place (15 minutes walking) but we used taxi during the night time because the train station district didn't seem us too safe. As for getting Midi station the location of hotel is perfect (2 minutes walking).
