This is a great hotel. One of the ones where you walk in & you know immediately that you've made a good choice. It's very cool; wonderful contemporary design, nice open plan reception & common areas on the ground floor, and the rooms have a delightful chic simplicity (and plenty of room - even in the "basic" room).
The bed was huge and the sheets delightfully soft (I didn't love the feather pillows, but I know many do), and the room was quiet due to double-glazing so despite being a light sleeper, I slept like a stone! We had a first floor room facing the main road, and I struggle to understand the earlier reviews that mentioned a lot of road noise - there was none (in fact the only noise that disturbed my sleep was the neighbouring rooms closing their doors in the morning).
Nice toiletries in the bathroom.
Helpful service from front desk (restaurant tips etc), although the checkout was slower than I'd like, but I won't take a point off them for that.
The location is ideal - right next to central station (ideal if you are coming from the airport, not so good if you are coming from the Eurostar), and it was a short 5 minute walk to the Central Market.
Overall, probably the best hotel we've stayed in this year & certainly excellent value. We would choose this hotel again in Brussels.
We paid just over €100/nt for a Classic Double & booked on the day via Expedia (annoyingly Expedia didn't collect the €4.50/nt city tax so we had to get the card out again to pay €9 at checkout. Work it out Expedia!)
