“A Great Yet Different Experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

The location of this hotel is superb. Right next to St. Katherine Cathedral and to great restaurants across the street and the neighboring places in which you will also find nightlife. However, three things distinguish this hotel. First, Chloe is a wonderful hostess. As soon as you check-in she provides a guide-quality explanation of the city and landmarks. The staff in general are truly hospitable. Second, each room is decorated according to destinations around the world. Really, out of the ordinary in a good way. Third, the hotel is affordable compared to other options and breakfast is included. We consider this a traveler's hotel.

The Welcome Hotel is very conveniently located -- two metro stops (about 5 minutes) from Brussels Central train station and the nearby SQUARE convention center. You can also walk there is about 12 minutes. The hotel is in a nice part of the city with lots of nearby, cozy restaurants. The staff is helpful, the breakfast is pretty good, the free WiFi works well, and the room is small but comfortable. However, if you are a PETA member or just object to the senseless killing of animals, ask not to be in the Congo room -- the leopard skin stretched on the wall above the bed will send you over the edge. And the decor in this room is a bit of a horror show -- an African motif that calls to mind the "George of the Jungle" cartoon show, including pictures from colonial times in the Belgian Congo. If you want a hot shower, forget it. At best, the water is lukewarm. One evening, the water never even got that warm. If you can put up with the funkiness, the Welcome Hotel is pretty good. Just be prepared for all of its quirks.

Dear Sir,
I want to thank you for all your compliments.
It is true that you can not please everyone in all areas, but it seems to me that bringing the authentic African Art (the parts in the room are original) to an horror show is a little contemptuous for people who mades these parts. It is true that we have installed a new system of co-generation (which should give us hot water in an ecological way) that gave us concern. But we are fighting for the comfort of our guest and our technicians have finally discovered the flaw!. thanking you again for your compliments,
Yours

Recently spent three nights in the "Morocco" room. Spacious, clean, comfortable and charming. Nicely located near a metro station for easy access to train station. Restaurants nearby. Room could have a little more light.

There is absolutely nothing negative to say about this fantastic hotel! We felt welcome from the minute we arrived, and the staff had lots of perfect recomendations about restaurants, attractions and pubs to visit. All of the ones we tried out was a success! Brussels is the perfect place for food-lovers, and the area around the hotel is the best restaurant-area in Brussels.
The hotel is an attraction in it self; all the rooms are furnished as different locations from all over the world - we "stayed in" Marracesh, whitch even had a jacuzzi. We loved the room!

Very friendly. Very special. Located near the center of Brussels.
We were met as we were old friends, so the it was a warm Welcome. The breakfast was very good and the room was clean and exceptional. If you are tired of the modern 'plastic'-hotels, than tis is for you.
