I stayed at the hotel while on a training course. My company regularly uses the hotel, not least of all because of the conference centre across the road from the hotel.
The hotel is an old building and furnished in a traditonal, classic French style. The staff are friendly and helpful, speaking good English and French.
The first night I stayed in Room 71. This is a double room at the front of the hotel. It comes with a full length bath, which is unusual for many hotels. All the furnishings and fixtures are beginning to look a bit tired, but not unacceptable. Good feature in all the rooms is the iPod alarm clock radio, allowing you to play your own music, Unusually this hotel doesn't have duvets but instead uses sheets and blankets. The television in this room (and my next room) were temperamential. Only if you turned them on at the set and not by the remote control did you get a picture. You got sound only if you turned it on by the remote.
The reason I had to change rooms is that the noise of the cars, and particularly the trams, went on late at night and started early in the mroning. If you choose to stay at this hotel request a room at the back. The noise was a particular issue as it was warm, the air conditioning was not efficient so I had to open the window. In room 50 there is one window which is below eyeline and whilst quite wide very narrow, so the room is not particularly light.
The room I was moved to was room 50. This is a duplex with only a shower, not a bath, and a very narrow spiral staircase leading up to the bedroom. It is not appropriate for anyone who is carrying any excess weight, is infirm or for young children. The room can also been seen into by drinkers in the beer garden. However it was a lot quieter and the quality of sleep from the comfort of the bed, the temperature of the room and the light was good.
The hotel has a nice, bright dining room with a skylight over the length of it. The furniture is, again, in the classic French style. Breakfast is the usual fare, though everyday the bacon was cooked until black. I guess the chef has never eaten bacon.
Lunches and dinner were all of a high standard and the wines were good. Service was poltie, friendly and helpful.
There is a good bar and seating outside for eating and drinking. Bit of a cardinal sin in Belgium the Belgian beer was not served in the right glasses, but fine if you didn't know!
Overall a good hotel, but not a great one.
