This small hotel is really subsidiary to the main business of the establishment as a restaurant but they have not allowed this to detract from the excellent facilities.
The hotel is well located, close to the shops, restaurants and attractions of the compact centre of Hasselt and convenient for business travellers as well. A bus stop is within a few yards (Leopoldplein) giving access to the excellent free city bus network, and cheap buses to other places - some directly and the rest via the interchanges at the Station and Dusartplein. The railway station is 2 minutes by bus or 8 minutes on foot.
The rooms are a good size, well-appointed and comfortable.
The restaurant provided a very reasonable breakfast including cereal, yoghourt, fruit, cold meats and the usual spreads, served 7am to 10am. Other meals were not the cheapest in Hasselt and we only ate there once but nevertheless we could not fault the quality, service and choice.
Wifi worked faultlessly in the bedroom throughout our stay.
Some people have complained about the lack of a lift and the steep stairs to the bedrooms which are on the top two floors of the four in this old (but well modernised) building. The stairs could be difficult for people with restricted mobility and some of our group struggled with them.
The heated towel rail in one shower room refused to produce any heat, whilst the warm air heating/air-conditioning in the bedrooms was rather noisy and a challenge to operate with no instructions provided.
The cleaners really did not have to take away the partly used soap every day!
Note that the hotel entrance is in Koning Albertstraat, round the corner from Leopoldplein towards the shopping centre - if you enter via the restaurant go to the far back right corner and through the door to the right of the bar. There is no-one permanently in the reception (it's only a small hotel) but the bar staff are helpful.
