Apparently and following the comments there are different types of room. Mine was everything but aparthotel: no kitchen, no stove, no microwave and even no table at all, so if you need to work on your laptop you will do it on the bed. The room was big and clean, on the backyard so very quiet. The bed was surprisingly good, the linen is clean. The flat TV screen on the wall was smalller than my laptop screen so impossible to watch really. The breakfast is very good: I guess the owner is Turkish because it is kind of turkish breakfast with lot of cold cuts, but eggs and sausage as well (didn't try as looked untasty), some nice features as excellent small breads and fresh and good pastries, decent orange juice and choice of herbal teas even if there was no straight black. All is buffet so you can esat as much as you can.
All in all the main reproach is that it is not what it says it is ( aparthotel), the wifi is very difficult to capture, worked really in one place in my room near the door sitting on the floor, no table in the room and located far from everything but metro is literally in front of the door. It is hugely overpriced as well. Nothing bad with this place if you need just a bed, good breakfast and ready to stay in uncharming room but there is a lot of nicer places in Bruxelles.

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.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first four floors which are accessed by the lift.

Came to town for a stag do and rented the apartment room with 2 double rooms. We only payed 100 Euros between all 4 of us, so it was only 25 Euros per head, and we were only staying one night.

We were expecting bad, but it was a place to sleep in for a few hours after a boys night out, so we weren't that bothered. When we got there, we waited at the bar having a beer (6 beers in total, 17 euros). The staff weren't the friendliest or most helpful I've seen around, but hey, we weren't needing advice on what to visit or do while we were there, so we weren't bothered. We joked around about having "room 101" and when we got to it, eventually were surprised... genuinly.

Large appartment, with the entrance going into the dining area with a kitchenette, from there you could access the shower room , a large living room with ugly sofas, and one twin room and a double room.

Lighting, just strip office lighting, ceiling was also office building style, and curtains, well, not really curtains, just vertical strips of thin fabric which let all the light in.

The most amusing of all for us was, in a very surreal creepy way, the fact that half the ceiling was missing in the double room, and the seemed to be a splash of blood on the "curtains" in the twin room (was probably ketchup or something, we hoped).

The WORST of all was the following morning when we went down for breakfast and found, no juice left, and no water visible. So we asked the staff if they could bring out more juice, they said they had run out, so we said, ok, no problem, just some water would be nice then, to which they replied "I'll go out and buy some juice, will be back in 3 minutes"... 5 minutes later we asked them for water again, they replied that the guy would be back in a minute... 5 minutes later we said, look, we only want some tap water, so they gave us a couple small bottles of water looking quite grumpy about it.

Check out the photos, I'm glad we stayed at this place, because we wanted a fun experience, and weren't going with the idea of sleeping at the best hotel in town.

After reading the reviews I was expecting the worse and it was too late to change the reservation, but in the end it looked out well.
Pros:
- Single room was big and the bed very comfortable
- Good heating system and water pressure
- Very close to metro station Ribaucourt (1 minute walk)
- Breakfast is good
Cons:
- Neighborhood looks dangerous
- Noise of drills and hammer at 7 am
- Doors is not isolated at all, you can hear all the noise on the hall and air is flowing under
- On the walls there were marks of a not very recent flood

In conclusion: it was way too expensive comparing to what's offered and I wouldn't rent it again.

Be aware that this hotel has very narrow stairs to the top two floors. We were offered a room on the top floor, but with two small children, the ladder-like stairs were simply too dangerous to negotiate. We refused to stay - to which the reception staff said Okay.

Plus, the neighborhood is seedy and the hotel stank of cigarettes. Unfortunately, they charged us, even though the reception staff let us look at the room before deciding to stay -- they still haven't returned our money.

So, all in all a bad place -- dangerous and dishonest.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay here.
