Not in the prettiest part of Brussels but so close to the Grand'Place and shops and restaurants. We arrived via Eurostar-Gare du Midi-Gare de Broukere. The hotel is a short walk from station. Easy check in, very helpful staff. Our fourth floor room was very clean and practical. Very comfortable bed. Excellent array of breakfast food. Could not fault.

Actually this property has one major plus point... The check in is easy and uncomplicated, and there is no waiting. This is great if you, like me, have just come in from a nine hour night flight from India.
The rooms are fine, clean, adequate. The breakfast was pretty good. Best of all is the central location...shops, eateries, the river front all within walking distance.
Ok, i am not raving over the place, but that is because i like hotels that are unusual, but i have no complaints whatsoever. The staff is courteous, the lobby has computers, and there is wi fi in the rooms, free of charge. Definitely a place to opt for, if you are fine with a no frills place to come back to at night.

Stayed at the Novotel for 2 nights with my spouse during the last stop of an extended vacation. Although this is a chain, it's the first time I've stayed at a Novotel. So much of this may not be new information.
Great location, not far from a couple of metro stops and the Central Plaza. I would advise contacting them ahead of time for walking directions from the metro. I neglected to do this and had an awful time trying to find the place. The "map" I printed of with directions was pretty much useless and I found it hard to get oriented. The rooms are very modern and of a pretty good size. The toilet and shower are in separate rooms which was helpful when sharing a room.

The service felt very much like a chain hotel. Polite, but not necessarily friendly - all business. The room rate was very expensive. Although they were extremely high in all the hotels I researched in Brussels (surprisingly so).

Overall, we had a pleasant stay. Nothing here to bring me back if I returned to Brussels. Would probably look around next time.

Stayed here 2 nights in March 2013 with husband and kids age 9 and 11. Large rooms for Europe. Also it is hard to get rooms for 4 and they have them here. Love that the hotel is wrapped around the old tower. Unique pool that the kids loved. Near to good seafood restaurants and an easy walk to Grand Place, Magritte Museum, etc. Highly recommended for families!

This is a very comfortable hotel within an easy walk to the Grand Place, the Metro and other transport links are also very close. The bedrooms are a generous size with very good bathroom facilities, we stayed for a long weekend, the room was quiet and very comfortable; there is a wide choice for a very enjoyable breakfast. All of the staff we met were very courteous, professional and friendly and gave excellent service and added to the enjoyment of our break.

A wonderfully clean and comfortable hotel. Beautifully designed and decorated. Large flatscreen tv in the room and plenty of seating area in there.

Decent gym equipment: 2 running machines and free weights. The pool and steam room area was inviting although the water was a bit on the cool side which may have been more noticeable because it was about -6 degrees and snowing.

Free wi-fi in the foyer with computers there for guest use.

Friendly staff. Excellently positioned a 5 minute walk from Grand Place. Definitely recommended.

This is a comfortable, modern hotel, with a good location in Brussels - situated a short and pleasant walk from the Grand Place and other attractions. The staff were welcoming and professional, and were always happy to help with any problems. The rooms were really good - comfortable bed, excellent bathroom, tea/coffee facilities, and free wifi. The breakfast (included in my rate) was plentiful and varied.
I would definitely return here, and would recommend this hotel highly.
