“Comfortable hotel close to Gare du Midi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Getting to Ibis Brussels Centre Gare Midi is straightforward when arriving into Gare du Midi by following the signs inside the station to Rue d'Angleterre where the hotel is across the road.

Check in was relativity smooth and we were given a room on the 2nd floor. The exceptionally clean room was quite spacious and nicely decorated, there was a reasonable amount of storage space. There was a large wall mounted TV with large selection of domestic and international stations.

The bathroom was ideal with a good powerful shower with wall mounted soap dispensers.

The hotel is conveniently situated close to Gare du Midi and highly recommended.

I do like Ibis hotels. This hotel is well located, in front of the second most important train station of Brussels, and you can get wherever you want in Brussels and even in Belgium from there. The rooms are really clean. It's a good recommendation when you need a private room and you don't want to pay huge prices.

This hotel is in a great location for Gare Midi in Brussels. We chose this hotel as we were taking the TGV to Paris the morning after our stay. Gare midi also provided a good setting off point for heading into the central area of Brussels. Rooms themselves were very functional, no frills, but everything you truly need for a good nights sleep and shower in the morning. As has been written by others, there is an unseemly presence outside the property, but we were never disturbed/hassled. Hotel allowed us to check in early and staff was helpful. It is a budget friendly property with a good location, and provided everything we needed.

I was part of a party of four that stayed three nights at this hotel from Sept. 6th to 9th. We had travelled from London with Eurostar, and after a little confusion (we took the wrong exit from the. Station - FYI turn RIGHT at the Eurostar exit!) the hotel was an easy walk away. We had pre-booked, and check in was quick and easy. We were all happy with the rooms and facilities, even with two of us to each room. The rooms were big enough to have a single and double bed, and the bathroom was a good size and well equipped. Storage space is a little underwhelming, but as this hotel is adjacent to the Eurostar terminal, it's likely to be used as a short stay hotel more often than not. The rooms are well insulated, and there is no street or station noise. Our booking entitled us to breakfast, and we were all pleased with the choice available. The walk to the Grand Place for the beer festival took about 20 mins, so another plus. A free safe deposit box service was also appreciated. The hotel would have another star overall if the restaurant was less spartan and offered a better choice of dishes. All in all we would stay there again, but for a short stay only.

Room Tip: High floor, rear of hotel?

We stayed in this Ibis hotel for one night, as we were on our way from Brussels to Amsterdam and this hotel is very near the station. We arrived late (9.30pm) and wet, as the weather was terrible, and were looking forward to getting into our room, changed and out for dinner. The check-in however was extremely slow, even though there were only 2 people in front of us. I cannot think why a check in would ever take this long. There was also a member of staff at the check-in desk, but not checking people in, while a long queue formed behind us. When were were finally seen to (about 20 min late) our own check in took ages too - with the girl having to wander off to make photocopies of our passports, what for, I have no idea. Finally we got to our room, which was large and clean but very basic. No kettle/ hot drink making facilities, and no iron (there's a communal one at the end of the corridor near the lift). Our room was very cold, so we put the heating on and went for dinner in the hotel's restaurant, as the weather was so bad. The food was ok, but I wasn't expecting much more to be honest, there was a good range of beers though. We returned to our room which was still very cold, the heating didn't seem to work at all. The main positive is that the bed was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Also the check-out time the next day was at midday, which we also appreciated, as this meant we could walk to Grand Place for breakfast. The free wifi was also a positive point of this hotel and it was even a fast connection.

I wouldn't stay here again mainly because the room was too basic and cold. Also, a quick check-in is really important in any hotel.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your feedback, we treat all comments with the utmost seriousness and will be investigating the matter of the slow checking accordingly. Concerning the heating in your room, our air-conditioning system is a global system that allows either to chill, either to heat the entire hotel. According to weather forecast we put one or the other system in function. It takes some time to have an effect. During winter or summer it's rather easy to manage, the last days with different changing weather conditions it was far more difficult, with the effect of sometimes rooms that were too hot or cold.
Kind regards,
Sophie Deravet
