The hotel is about 15-20minutes walk from Brussels Central station, From Brussels-midi station you take underground train(metro) and the hotel is only 4 stops away & then you can walk for 5 minutes to hotel.

the location of the hotel is so perfect, it's in the middle of shopping street and 10 minutes walk from Brussel central square where you can see all the historic building, 200 years old statue of a boy peeing and rest of the tourist attraction.

Staff at hotel are very helpful and friendly.

Book your room with breakfast so you don't have to wander around in the morning for breakfast. I have been travelling all around Europe and all the hotel I stayed served continental breakfast only however Marivaux Hotel is the first one where they do cooked breakfast as well so I am really pleased that i stayed there.

The only downsize is that the Hotel has got 4 star rating and yet there's no gym, sauna or pool.

yes, I do recommend to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Book it with breakfast as there are not plenty of places open in the morning around hotel for breakf...

We stayed for just one night at the hotel in November. We would definitely stay again. Clean, comfortable, good location for both Brussels Midi and Grand Place. The staff were very friendly and considerate, taking extremely good care to help us with travel arrangements. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 3528 especially nice.

Another couple and ourselves stayed at The Marivaux for 4 nights at the end of October and enjoyed an excellent stay all round. We always found the staff friendly and very helpful. Our rooms were 5404 and 5401 which were spacious, clean and comfortable as well as being very quiet. There was plenty of wardrobe space, a real coffee maker and a large well-equipped bathroom.
On our first night we arrived in the evening and being tired and not knowing the area we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant, The Meat Me Bistro. We opted for the 19 euro two course menu and enjoyed our food. We also ate here on our final night and chose from the main menu. The food was beautifully cooked, tasty and large portions. A good choice!
The hotel is situated on a main road that has other hotels, shops and offices. There are a couple of sex shops in the area, but there is nothing seedy about the road - opposite is a Waterstones. The centre of Brussels is about 15 minutes walk away and there is an indoor shopping centre nearly opposite. Rogier metro station is a few minutes walk, but it it does have lots of steps. Brussels North railway station is 10 minutes away. We used this to visit Leuven at a cost of 10 euros return. It is a very pleasant town with excellent shopping, good restaurants and fine buildings. We also visited Brugges and Ghent with City Tours and they picked us up and dropped us back at the hotel.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Marivaux as a base and would happily use it again.

Room Tip: Our quiet rooms overlooked the back away from the road.

A huge thank you for your kind words! We appreciate reading that you consider the Marivaux as the “best hotel you’ve stayed in” :)

Spent final night of our trip here and were quite happy. Very good location, very good staff, and an excellent breakfast buffet. Good bacon. We had the "Harmony" class room which was large, roomy and quiet. Nespresso machine in room is a nice touch. Large bathrooms make the room even better. Because we were tired and it was raining we decided to eat dinner at hotel. Was surprising good and both enjoyed our meals.

Have to seriously question remark about "seedy sex strip. Saw one or two but that's about it. Most of the area is obviously a main shopping area. Far more wedding gown shops than sex shops. Would definitely recommend this hotel, great value.

We organised an event with approximately 30 people at this hotel, situated at less than 1 kilometer from the Grand Place. All of the guests were very positive about the rooms. As the event organiser, I was happy with the excellent hotel service and personel. Also the streetside bar/restaurant serves good food and is nicely decorated. Highly recommended.

The location is good, parallel to la rue neuve with all the shops, and 15 minutes to the historical center, the street can be noisy, (that's life in a city), the rooms are confortable and the staff very friendly. I plan to return.

Room Tip: Avoid the street if you want quiet nights, one night was OK, another a bit rocky.

Dear yendial,

Thank you for choosing the Marivaux Hotel when you were in Brussels. We’re happy to have contributed to your pleasant stay and that you enjoyed the comfort of your room and the Marivaux’ central location: near the shops for shopping and the historical centre for visiting!

Brussels’ city centre can get lively but, as you say, it’s what’s expected in a capital city :)

If you’re planning on returning, then we will be very happy to welcome you back!

Kind regards
