“Excellent hotel. Will definitely stay here again.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Pros:
- Nice and pretty hotel and room design.
- Clean and quiet room. It was also big and lots of space.
- Safety deposit box in the room.
- Fridge in the room.
- Complimentary water and carbonated water (one bottle each).
- Coffee and tea set in the room.
- Working AC.
- Polite staff. They respected our "do not disturb" sign.
- Location was close to Botanique metro station. There was Carrefour Express right across the hotel.
- Super fast internet in the room.
- If staying more than a night, use the "no room cleaning" card to get a free beer or coke (once per stay).

Cons:
- Not a lot of food options outside the hotel.

We just stayed for one night and had quite a comfortable stay with nice breakfast in the morning. It is very modern and we found staff very friendly and helpful.The hotel is situated within walking distance of the metro station but we managed to walk to the Grand Place without any problems. Our room had everything we wanted and made it a perfect stay in Brussels

Really liked this hotel. I believe we had the best room possible within the room range we booked as it was a spacious L-room on the 7th floor overlooking the Botanique Garden.

- LOCATION: although the hotel meant to be in the city centre, it isn't quite in the city centre. You would either have to walk about 10-15 minutes to get to the central area where the sights/shops/restaurants are or take a tube which is quite close.

- ROOM: The room was of a very decent size, in fact it felt like we rented a studio. I liked the quirky design of the room which really makes your stay memorable.

- ROOM FACILITIES: The room had good facilities: big TV screen with a good selection of channels (including English), coffee maker (makes really nice coffee - the only drawback is that you get only one sachet per day, but you can purchase more at the reception), free wifi with a strong signal, air conditioning and mini fridge (free water is included).

- BATHROOM: The bathroom was quite spacious and modern and it was nice to find some complimentary toiletries (shower gel, shampoo and body lotion) and a hairdryer. My only recommendation for owners is to get extractor fans for bathrooms.

- CLEANLINESS: The room was promptly cleaned every day - can't complain.

- FOOD: Unfortunately, the hotel restaurant was closed during our stay, but it didn't really affect us as we preferred to eat out in the city centre. Also I can't comment on breakfast as it turned out to be cheaper to have a breakfast in local cafes.

- STAFF: friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a panoramic room if possible.

I stayed in this hotel with a friend as we were visiting Brussels for 4 days. We really liked the decor as it was something different to the norm that you find in hotels. Nice, spacious room, comfortable bed. We actually had more space in the room than we expected. There was a safe in the room, which was great to have, as well as a mini fridge which contained a complimentary bottle of still water and sparkling water. When we first checked into the room these were not there, but were there every other day we stayed. We were extremely happy with the hotel overall, but there were just a few minor problems. When we checked in, we had already paid for the room, but we were told we would need to provide a credit card as a guarantee. Neither of us have a credit card, only debit cards, so we were told we could give €100 cash instead. We were assured that this would be returned when we were checking out. We received a receipt so accepted this. However when we checked out we received only €82.15. We were then told that there was a charge for City Tax. We were just a bit disappointed that we had not been told this upon checking in, as it had sounded like the €100 would be returned. Also, the Smoods restaurant and bar is closed for the months of July and August. This is such a shame, and I've never seen a hotel close their bar and restaurant over the summer. We would have really liked to go there one night, but it can't be helped!

Overall I really liked this hotel, and we had a lovely stay despite the issues mentioned.

Had a lovely few nights, situated near the Botanique gardens, a little out of the way but an easy walk in or catch the metro.
Room very spacious, the whole hotel smells of Bloom perfume, but it is quite nie.

Four star as advertised this hotel is not! Breakfast was charged at an extra 32 euro and was extremely poor quality and had to be eaten on a table full of half eaten meals in spite of requesting table to be cleared, request ignored. Good value breakfast can be found in locality far cheaper. Unable to purchase an evening meal or even a drink at any time due to Restraunt and bar closed 24 hrs, purchased bottle of wine in shop across the road but (4 star ?) hotel "didn't have a corkscrew", believe it or not. Hotel bedroom wall and ceiling covered in stark brightly coloured graffiti which is supposed to be modern art, not at all impressed and will definitely NOT be making return visit.

I was leading a group of 80 to stay at this hotel on a one-night visit. A champagne reception had been organised as well as a three course meal, both held at the hotel. The food was well presented and of a high standard.

Once the group had enjoyed both, some of us adjourned to the bar which was tastefully decorated. Speaking of which, you will find the rooms of modernist nature with some quirky art or sculptures. I didn't find this distasteful and in fact it gave the hotel a unique feel.

Reception staff should be congratulated for the way in which they managed check-in. For such a large group it went very smoothly indeed - this was unexpected and appreciated.

There was some dissatisfaction expressed over breakfast, but for many Brits, if they don't receive a full English it's reason to grumble.

Ultimately, this is a well appointed hotel, with helpful staff, modern décor. Recommended for business or pleasure - would certainly consider returning.
