“Good location but over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

An old friend & myself meet in Brussels each year & have always stayed somewhere different around the center. This has been by far the most expensive & by no means the best. The location for the Midi station could not be better, our twin room was clean enough & the free cable internet a selling point. The shower room was much too small. It was almost impossible to get dry in there (If you are very slim you will not have a problem).
There does not seem to be enough staff on reception or in the lobby (only one) which meant the receptionist seemed very stressed.
The breakfast was very good & could not be faulted. I would only recommend this hotel if you need to be close to the station or/& not on a budget

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems defiantly mention this to the hotel before you book.

My brother, sister and I stayed here for two nights. I booked this hotel because of the availability of a triple room and the easy access to Bruxelles Midi station for our trains.

The good: there was sleeping space for three people.

The bad: the walls and ceilings might as well not be there. You could hear EVERYTHING that happened around you. If the TV was on, the radio, or people were just talking, you could hear it. If they walked around, it sounded as if they were going to crash through the ceiling. One night they were making lots of noise at 1AM - we asked the front desk staff to ask them to be quiet, but the staff did not.

There were also plumbing problems. After flushing the toilet, the pipes would start knocking. Sometimes it would do it for a few seconds and stop, and other times it would do it continuously. Flushing again sometimes helped, sometimes not. The front desk staff did not know how to fix it, either. I had to rig the toilet using a bottle cap to stop this from happening. Furthermore, the shower curtain did not go all the way to the base, so water got everywhere, and if you shut off the shower too quickly the handheld nozzle would shoot out of the holder and knock you in the head.

The hotel did have internet, but it was only wired, so iPods or iPads can't connect. The hotel did have AC, but the remote control was not in the room and there was no way to change the temperature - only turn it on and off. It was set to 64F (18C).

DO NOT STAY HERE. IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

We chose Euro Capital because it is opposite Brussels Midi (Zuid) train station from where the Eurostar leaves. The hotel room was functional and clean. The room had a small window with an unattractive view of the railway line.

If you have a laptop, then you can access the internet via the wired connection. However we had an iPhone and iPad and there was no wi-fi access. This was very annoying as neither of the two public computers in the lobby worked.

Our major complaint is that a previous occupant of our room had allowed water to run from the bathroom onto the carpetted area. The carpet was very wet and the room smelled musty when we entered. Either the cleaners did not notice or did not telll management. We raised this issue with management but during our stay nothing was done to alleviate the problem and we were not offered another room. We ended up using the bath mat to soak up some of the excess water in the carpet.

Hotel is functional for sleep, breakfast and close access to train station, but otherwise not a highlight of any stay.

Euro Capital is a good hotel, nothing fancy, but all amenities are well in place, and spacious rooms. Everything is functional. The best thing about the hotel is it's location. It is right outside the Midi Station, and a 10-20mts walk to the Palace and tourist areas.

I requested a quite room. I was given a room with thin walls and was unable to sleep with noise from the adjoining room. Footsteps from room upstairs added to the noise. I entered the reception one evening and was told I needed permission from the receptionist before I could sit on a chair in the lobby. Truly, a poorly-constructed hotel without atmosphere and unhelpful staff.

I booked this rather than the IBIS a couple of doors away because the Ibis had increased its price 50% during an expo at Brussels.
For 100 euro / night I got a quiet room at the back of the hotel, double & single bed, good breakfast, helpful service at the desk, loan of a converter plug, free internet (with RJ11 connector borrowed from phone, not wireless).
Rooms are simple but good sized, energy saving lighting (hint: pace back & forth in front of the lift/elevator to prevent the light going off!), bath / shower good.
This ticked all the boxes for a simple business hotel and so the rating is 5 star within those expectations.

Hotel is located very near to Gare du Midi, so expect some noise...When arrived, I was informed I had a room on 5th floor, but the lift was not working, so had to carry my own suitcase through a few narrow suitcase corridors. Upon my arrival, electricity went off too, so basically the only thing to do was to take a shower and go to sleep. I have to admit that the room looked quite ok in morning light, but still was quite happy to check-out early. I can recommend this hotel only to someone whose other option is sleeping at the railway station....
