Spotlessly clean. 20 minutes or so walk from Grande Place, 5 minutes from Rogier Metro and 10 minutes from Gare du Nord.
Reminds me of a slightly trimmed down version of Premier Inn in UK. However it lacks a restaurant. The replacement is a spacious functional room furnished like a restaurant, with a range of dispensers for beverages and snacks. I took my own snacks from outside there for breakfast and nobody objected. Like Premier Inn there is nowhere in the room to place your suitcases except the floor. But not a real problem. The real problem for me was the rigid check in time of 3 pm. So if your flight lands in the morning you have to put your luggage in their very good lockers, go out and come back. The check in is automated but I and many others I saw did not experience a smooth process and had to be helped by the staff, who were fine and spoke most european languages well. There is no "reception" as such. The "front office" staff of 2 max at any time sits in a room in the corner of the lobby and is available for any help required. Cleaning is done every 2nd or 3rd day with a notice stating a generous discount per day you don't have the staff clean the room, after the second day. We tried to avail of this but the staff on the 3rd day were keen to clean the rooms and we let the discount pass. These are all minor glitches and the hotel is perfect for a short stay in Brussels for business or as a tourist, if you are going to be outside most of the time, since there is not much atmosphere within the hotel.
