I stayed here as was in Brussels for a conference, and wanted to be somewhere very close by, so the hotel ticked all the boxes.
It is very easy to get to from Gare du Midi, with a direct tram link, and also a slightly quicker route involving a change.
I arrived fairly late, wanting a shower, only to find the shower not working in my room.
I was told this was impossible as everything was new - I look a lot younger than I am and it frustrates me that I am often treated like a teenager when enquiring through customer service.
The door also was extremely difficult to lock and unlock and makes me wonder whether everything was properly checked when renovating.
Eventually, the receptionist at the time accepted that there was a problem and changed my room for me, where there was a working shower.
The TV didn't work, but I couldn't be bothered to question this as I would be back late both evenings anyway.
The hotel does provide complimentary tea and coffee downstairs, it would be helpful if mugs are left there, because plastic cups and hot water aren't very sensible.
Breakfast is a standard continental.
The wifi was very variable and slightly frustrating as I had documents to read, hopefully they'll improve their connection.
I appreciate that this is a hotel not a restaurant service and that food isn't a priority, but one vegetarian option on the entire menu is really not good enough in a multicultural city.
Even if something like chips or a soup was on there, it would be helpful to add a further veggie option for travellers coming in late at night.
All in all, it's in a safe area, it's a good location - I wouldn't be rushing back there, but if places are fully booked, there's nothing hugely wrong with it, just improvements to make it worth the money.
