“Good familyroom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Stayed the weekend before Christmas in this hotel. Well situated, close to the Underground station and only 15-20 by foot to the Grote Markt, the main place of Brussels.

Friendly staff and good breakfast. In fact two rooms, seperated by a door. Good familyroom with two bathrooms.

To conclude: good price-quality ratio. When you book at the hotel itself, a package deal of parking, free wifi and room is available.

Room Tip: Take the family room

The decor is trying very hard to be 'arty' but comes across as a bit odd. The rooms are fine, but small and need a bit of an upgrade (grouting in showers, tatty towels), however overall clean. The service was quite OK. The breakfast was fine - reasonable selection. The internet was free and worked OK.

Although the room was a bit small, the room was cool, Fully furnished and equipped at the highest level.
The design of the hotel is spectacular.
The service is wonderful.
At least when it comes to my business trip the location was excellent.

Location: TOP!!! funky, modern, minimalistic hotel right in the center of ixelles, close to lots of different shops, some restaurants, and the big avenue louise for some decwnt label shopping. Metro station also really close by.
Room: way too small, there is hardly no way around the beds (twin bed room), the beds are comfy but rather short, the bathroom is fine, small as well, shower was good. Tiniest possible wardrobe ever!! Ridiculous! Noise: We heard every single flush from neighbors on top as well as the water from their showers felt like it was running through the room. Roomkey didnt work (cardsystem) we had to use normal key (...read this issue from old reviews - why no improvement?)
Breakfast: always dirty tables, no matter which time you go, partly empty "buffet", options rather limited, juice from a powder/water mixture machine, eggs are not fresh and cold, but pastry is amazingly delicious!! Had everyday croissants.
Service(reception): ridiculous!! Rude!! Not professional! Not eager to help... a total dissapointment!! - firstly the keycard system "yah its broken we will get it fixed" nothing for 5!!!!days, housekeeping almost none existant the only things done: new towels every now and then (which btw were old, torn and thin as paper), receptionists are not professional "im here alone i cant do anything" ??? Three stars yes, but a little standard would be nice!! Kudos to the ladies from breakfast, always friendly and fast with requests!! - stay there for a weekend clubbing/shopping, and dnt expact nothing. 1star not 3.

The Aqua is both a funky and functional hotel. The lobby and reception area are the funky bits with groovy lights and lots of natural light. The bedroom was pretty small but as a place to crash out it was perfect. The room has a very nice shower/wet room with lots of space. You wouldn't stay at the Aqua if you were going to hang out in the hotel for long given the small bedroom and no bar/restaurant (other than the great breakfast in the airy, light basement breakfast room). But it's great value, not far to the nearest Metro and thoroughly pleasant to stay in.

I am just back from a 2 night tripe in Brussels with a group of 5 friends where we stayed at the Aqua Hotel. It is a nice, modern and very clean hotel. The breakfast was very nice, lots of food available and at weekends it is 8 until 11 which was very handy. Staff were very helpful, and the shower is great! It is a bit of walk to the Gran Place for a night out but taxis were relatively inexpensive. There is a great pub within walking distance called "The Crazy Circle" - highly recommend it!

Very nice hotel and room at a reasonable price considering I booked pretty last minute. Good location, friendly and helpful staff and a good breakfast included in the booking.
There's a great spa that had just opened just over the road, see my other review!

All in all, nice hotel that I would happily use again.
