“great choice”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This hotel has a lovely atmosphere. The foyer is modern and unique in design. The check in is efficient and when the hotel restaurant was closed on Sunday evening, they suggested the nearby "Brussels Grill" which was a good suggestion for a quick, early meal after a morning's travels. We would have liked to explore the nearby shopping centre but did not have time. It is close to 2 major chain hotels if you need to meet friends who are also on tour. The classic French design of our room facing the street was comfortable and the marble bathroom is large with a separate toilet. Very relaxing and good to be able to open the windows for fresh air, and air con. is helpful as it was very warm.
The best part of the experience are the croissants in the breakfast room. They are delicious. Also the man who served the coffee remembered our choice the next morning so that is rare in a larger hotel. Would stay here again on our way to Bruges. The Ghent-Bruges tour met us at the hotel and the reception confirmed our pick up time so they were helpful.

Room Tip: Choose the street view for people watching and fresh air.

Dear Melbourne7,

Thank you for this great recommendation. I am pleased to read how much you have enjoyed your stay at Hotel Marivaux.
Be sure to try our “pain au chocolat” as well next time you are traveling through Brussels, they are equally delicious!

Excellent location, excellent and helpful staff, reasonably priced. Cannot fault it. Recommended to all!

We had to change a room when we arrived at the hotel and the staff sorted it straight away. Most impressed.

Short and sweet.

Conveniently located close to the city center (5-10 min walk depending on how fast you are), spacious and comfortable rooms, fast check-in/checkout. Excellent for a city break or a shopping spree in Brussels.

Quick stop in Brussels, so I basically needed a comfy bed, hot shower...no room service, no gym, no bar with attitude, no need to be stones throw from Grand Place. Great price, great value, 2-3 blocks from two different Metros. Was ahappy camper there!

Beautiful rooms. We were upgraded on arrival. Very clean, well decorated and luxorius beds. Breakfast was great with a wide selection of hot and cold foods. Centrally located with some great restaurants near by. The steam room wasn't very steamy but this is a minor criticism. All in all, it's excellent!

I stayed for 2 nights during a business trip. It is in a good central spot, close to 2 metro stations, close to the local mall and rue neuve for the shoppers, in walking distance from Grand Place and other attractions. Helpful service desk, good internet, food at the hotel's restaurant was very good. The breakfast could have greater variety.
