Stayed 2 nights 24-26 May 2013 in a private room. Clean, neat, private, quiet, excellent service. My room directly opens its windows to a huge balcony and I love it. The staff even helped me with my luggage when I needed to bring to the basement to temporarily keep them until I got checked in. The night staff was a super friendly guy who helped me check my next destination with details and care, and even discussed my needs with them in French.
And all the hostelites I met were very kind and helpful to each other. We helped each other with bags.
What will bring it to a 5 star rating will be the breakfast and surrounding. The breakfast spread is thin, just cold bread and cold eggs. The nearest convenience store is about 12 min walk away, crossing a major road. And carrying 2 litres of drinks for a lady to walk that distance is taxing, for me at least.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hostel is ideally located at about 10 min walking from the Brussels Main Square (Grand-Place). Nearby, you'll be able to take a picture of the Manneken-Pis. The hostel is located on the Place des Barricades, a amazing neoclassic square with typical white buildings. A really relaxing and quit place right in the centre of the capital city. From the hostel, you can easily reach the European Parliament, and if you'd rather go for food pleasures, the famous Belgian chocolate makers and local breweries are waiting for you! If you're tempted by fashion, you can easily go to the Dansaert and Saint-Géry as well as to Louise, Porte de Namur and Rue Neuve neighbourhoods. ... more less
