The hotel is well located between Gare Midi and the Grand Place. All shopping areas are also in easy walking distance, well, in winter, its cool (-8 deg C) for walking.
The check-in by a young man was straight-forward and pleasant enough. There is an elevator which is better than pulling luggage up 2 floors.
The room (No:33) faced the square and street and got the setting sun which was nice for winter. In summer, it would get hot as there was no air-con in the room to cool things down. All room facilities worked well and there is free wifi in the room but tended to cut out at times
The walls are a bit thin and we could hear coughs, sneezes and hair dryers going off at 8am from the next room. That was the end of a planned sleep-in!
We were only there for 1 night and when we walked out at 9.30 the next morning to go for a quick walk and check out at 11am (the check-out time), an elderly guy in the front office was very persistent in trying to get us to pay up and vacate the room immediately. In the end we paid up but refused to vacate the room till we came back from our walk. This was really disappointing to be harassed like this. In all our hotel stays in Europe on this trip, this is the only time something like this has happened. Wont be coming back here!
