“Beautiful new room”
Reviewed May 28, 2007

Beautiful new room. After reading some negative reviews we were really surprised to find a brand new room with: flatscreen tv, bath, shower with rainshower, airconditioning, minibar, bathrobe etc. Even a scale! It looked like they opened a new wing at the hotel.
Breakfast was served until 11 but when we got there at 10 there were only some croissants and yoghurt left. There were no glasses or coffeecups. There was one girl working in the breakfast area but she was in no hurry at all to restock the buffet.

We stayed at the Hotel Vendome for 5 nights and we reserved a room directly with the hotel(bed and breakfast was included in the price, which was very reasonable). The continental breakfast was superb and was a perfect start to the day.

The hotel staff were very friendly and the room itself was cosy, with underfloor heating. Perfect for this time of year.

The hotel is very central, near Rogier metro and 5/10 mins walk to Grand Place and other attractions.

Belgium - lovely tavernas, great choice of restaurants and there is the irresistable smell of warm waffles from street stalls.

We also took day trips by train from Central Station to Bruges and Antwerp, both cities are beautiful and we are very much looking forward to our next trip back!!!

Spent two nights as part of a brilliantly priced package.

Our room was on the 5th (attic) floor in the building accessed by lift 1. This lift was slightly scary as it had no internal doors and if you didn't exit quickly at your floor, and someone else had pushed the button, you found yourself whizzing back down again - we got better with practice!

Our room was very small and you couldn't open the bathroom door properly because it banged against one of the twin beds. The bathroom was tired but clean. The room was also very clean. It would have benefited from bedside cabinets as there would just have been enough room to squeeze two in.

The breakfasts were excellent and the staff very helpful.

The location was very good - near the tram stop and the shops leading down to the Grand Place.

We stayed for one night at this hotel, the location was excellent being close to shopping areas and restaurants. The room allocated to us was big and spacious with air-conditioning and it was clean. Best of all, they served a fantastic breakfast with a wide range of choices like pastries, eggs (boiled and scrambled!), bread, ham, cheese, bacon, sausages etc. I paid EUR50 for the room, a value for money hotel for sure!

I was there with my wife on vacation for four nights and we found the hotel confortable to just go to sleep. The rooms did not have air conditioners but with the windows open it was okay to sleep. We had a room in the back and we did not hear too much noise. The bathrooms were clean with plenty hot water. The people were friendly and helpful specially helping us with the parking spot in front of the hotel. Breakfast was great with plenty choices of juice, eggs, bread, cereal, fruit and much more. I will consider using this hotel if I was traveling without my kids, otherwise it is ok for an unexpensive hotel stay.

The thing I remember most about this hotel was how warm it was inside. Our room was booked as part of a package. The hotel is actually three buildings joined together and being very old we weren't surprised at the odd shaped rooms and winding hallways, creaky floors, narrow stairs and tiny elevator. Our room was very tiny, just large enough for the bed, a small desk and a wardrobe which contained a small refrigerator and a safe on one side and room for hanging clothes on the other. The size of the room was ok since we were only there to sleep. And it's a good thing we didn't stay long in the room because the floor of the room radiated heat despite the closed radiators. We kept our window open all the time (temps in the 70's F) which kept the room tolerable. The hallway was very stuffy and warm. The bathroom was clean but quite small. The ceiling above the tub/shower was low, which would be a problem for anyone above 5'10". The staff were friendly, although two front desk clerks were in training at the time. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and consisted of fruit, cereal, eggs, sausage, breads, juice, etc. The best part was that the dining room was airconditioned (whew!).

The hotel is centrally located, within a short distance to the key tourist and shopping areas. For us this made up for the sauna-like room.

Dear Sir, Madam,
It is unfortunate that you had a unpleasant stay in the Vendome Hotel. The 4 star Marivaux Hotel is not linked to your review in any way.
Best Regards,
Team Marivaux
