“Great location”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

This hotel is situated close enough to the station and is a short walk away from the center of Brussels. The rooms are tiny but I didn't expect any bigger from European hotels. The hotel is clean and the staff is great. Didn't try the food there so cannot comment on it.

Perfect for a short trip to Brussels.

My husband and I stayed this hotel for 3 nights and we were very happy with it. The hotel itself is very clean. The staff are very nice and helpful. I could go on and on about how wonderful the staff at this hotel were. The rooms also have air conditioning.

The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was the area...I was travelling with passports in my handbag and you really have to watch out for pickpocketers. This is an area where tourists stay so just be extra careful for pickpocketers. I think I was too cautious walking around this neighbourhood.

Ibis Brussels Centre Ste Catherine is a hotel you want to avoid if you are staying longer that 2 nights, the rooms are super small even for European standards, the service is not great, the internet is extremely slow and the restaurant was not good, the best part of this hotel is its location.

We stayed for one night. The window was overlooking the back of the hotel, no view at all. But the bed was very comfortable and the room was clean.
As an Ibis hotel, the room was smaller than many Ibis Budget hotels I have stayed.
The vending machine at the reception sales the 500 ml bottle of water for 3.5 €. Unacceptable.
The cleaning lady knocked twice on the door and opened it despite the DO NOT DISTURB sign we had put on the knob. This is something that happens to other hotels too, people must learn to respect the privacy of their customers.
The Wi-Fi was fast and reliable.
The breakfast was too expensive for us and we did not pay for it.
The location was perfect for a city trip.
The reception staff was friendly and did their job just right.

My family and I stayed there for 4 nights. We liked a lot the location of the hotel: Just a few minutes from the city centre (Grand Place) and very close to the metro station St Catherine. From there, Central Station is only two stops away using either line 1 or 5, which is very convinient if you travel by train (all thrains to and from Brussels stop to all train stations, expept those using Thalys trains). Hotel's breakfast is very good. It had a good variety of bread, jam, cheese, fruits, cereals etc. The hotel staff was nice and friendly. Also, our room was a little bit small, but the beds were very comfortable.

The rooms at ibis Sainte are too cramped and congested. The mattress is bigger than the bed, I was about to fall d other night. The reception and restaurant area is spaced out. Food is good. The location is decent not the greatest. All said its still a complete value for money hotel.
