Reviewed April 16, 2014

A little late on the review, we stayed here 2 nights in June 2013. Finding the hotel was a little challenging but once we were there it was great. Great location, very easy to walk to a lot of great spots. Our room was the very top which was private and very spacious. Be advised its an older building with multiple stairs, no elevator available. The bed was very comfortable and clean. We also had a private sink in our room which helped with cutting down on bathroom time. The only negative about our room was that it was very hot by the end of the day due to the amount of sunlight and location in the building. Hostel was very quiet, the bathroom wasn't private but very clean and never had any issues accessing it. We didn't make it to breakfast there but the area where it was set up was very cute. As 2 young females travelling with a HUGE language barrier we felt very comfortable and safe there. Highly recommend this hostel

Room Tip: I don't know that you can specify rooms here but we had a double bed private with shared bathroo...

Great location within walking distance of everything you want to see in Brussels. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. The thing I love the most about les ecrins is the personal service. Staff were phenomenal, so friendly, makes me a bit sad to go. Thanks you for making our stay so wonderful.

The proprietor of this hotel is fantastic. He is friendly, greets you warmly when you enter and ensures you're happy with your room. Everything is very clean and neat though the space is small. The breakfast room is adorable and the selection offered is a variety of breads and coffee and juice. The shared bathroom is clean and readily available. I felt very safe though I was alone. The hotel is in a perfect area; quiet, literally just a few steps to metro and also within a short walk of all the touristy sights. It's also near a great selection of restaurants. I was very pleased with my stay and would recommend it to others looking for a personalized stay in Brussels.

I stayed here for two nights in March. The bed was very comfortable, and it was amazingly quiet. The location is marvelous - out of the tourists but just a 5-10 minute walk away from the Grand Place. It is incredibly easy to get to from the St. Catherine Metro; if you are bringing the train in to Brussels, it's the perfect location. Breakfast was fresh bread, fruits, juice, coffee - nothing fancy, but I don't eat much in the morning. The bathroom area is pretty much a part of the bedroom, but if you're traveling on your own (or with someone you are very comfortable with), it's just fine. The owners are very nice and friendly - he mapped out where to go and what to do for me. I would definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay while in Brussels! Close to the Grand Place as well as many wonderful restaurants and a metro stop. The rooms are simple, but spacious. Guy was incredibly helpful, friendly and gave great recommendations and tips. Would definitely stay here again when In Brussels.

It's a simple place, no luxury. But Mr. Guy and Mr. Edward are extremely polite, the location is great (it's close to downtown, but the street is really quiet!), room is very clean, breakfast is good and price is fair!! Perfect place!!

Very good place if you are looking for a budget stay. Rooms are small but clean. Very close to the city centre. Breakfast is included and awesome! Lots of fresh croissant, fruits, marmelade and staff is very funny and polite!
