This hotel is easy to reach as it is on one of the metro lines from Gare de Midi, the international railway station in Brussels. The area is slightly run down, but I didn't feel unsafe walking the streets in the evening or coming back on the metro.
The hotel itself is on the main street which can give rise to traffic noise. I was on the top floor which is reachable from the lift on the fourth floor by a flight of steps, which were quite steep. My room only had a sky light that was out of my reach so I was unable to either open or close it, and it had no curtains to shut out the light. This lead to the room becoming extremely warm during the day and as well as the no way of making it dark at night. The lighting in the bathroom was quite poor so I made use of the mirror in the bedroom.
Because of the wooden stairs there was quite a bit of noise when people came back at night but overall the soundproofing is good.
The staff were friendly, the breakfast adequate, and all the facilities worked well. Wifi was free. They also offer a transfer service to and from the airport if needed.
With the proviso not to expect too much, this hotel is quite okay for a short stay.More
