This hotel is so convenient for the SNCB station being just the other side of the canal from the station. English is spoken by all the staff and all are very helpful. If you have a room in the front of the hotel (the majority) there is a slight background noise from the elevated motorway but not enough to keep me awake .For some unknown reason the trams stop running just after 8 p m so they cause no problem. My room (103) was well appointed and the bathroom door could be opened to give a second soundproofing door against noise in the corridor.
The selection at breakfast (served from 4. 30 a m ) was good. regular travellers will know that if they see a coach unloading the night before it is best to start breakfast before 7 a m.
RECOMENDED .P S I note that someone said that it is in the middle of the red light district, I went out both evenings I was there and didn't see anything to support that claim.
Just round the corner in Place Busset is the "La Gondola" Italian restaurant which does not only serve Italian food. It has an English menu. You will be able top see the rolls which are served with your meal being backed in an open oven, they are realey good. Again recommended.
