Things that could have been better: open the windows to the hallways to allow for air flow. However, we did this ourselves, and it was fine. Our request for more towels seemed to have been forgotten, but we were able to snag some one our own (shhh). Seriously, that's it. It's a great place to stay, unless you're planning on spending all your time in Brussels in a hotel room, and wouldn't that just be a little sad?
Things to keep in mind: It's an older building, and, even though it has an elevator, it's quite small. We squeezed in with our luggage, so be cautious about that.
Hotel Chambord is a simple place to stay, but they know how to keep their customers happy. Upon arrival, we were helped with every. single. thing. we asked for. We got recommendations for the front desk (honest ones; one guy said he doesn't eat in Brussels often because of the fact that he just works rather than lives here). Breakfast buffet was quite good, though some might dislike the floppy bacon and semi-wet eggs. Air conditioning in the lobby, though non in the rooms. Window to the room wouldn't open but moved quite painlessly to a (nicer) room (with a balcony) on another floor.
The location is good; right on one of the main roads. It's still a lot of walking, at least from Midi. We were kind of wusses and took a cab when luggage was involved.
