Chao Chow Palace
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The hotel is conveniently located at a short walking distance from Rogier bus stop. Gare du Nord station is also at a walking distance. there is a super market which is very close also City2 mall is at a walking distance. it is pretty close to that part of the city where most monuments is located. in my opinion you can walk through the streets from the hotel to grand place and even further to grand sablon and even manekken (which i did).
The hotel rooms were decent and clean. so were the bathroom and toilet. my room was on the 7th floor facing the railway tracks but i wasn't disturbed by the trains.
The lady manager was very cooperative.
the breakfast was lavish.
Good value for money.

The hotel is extremely conveniently situated. The rooms are all fine and clean, the décor was not to my taste but I would not claim the rooms needed refurbishement. The staff were all helpful. Most of the breakfast did not look appetising (especially as I'm vegetarian) but they did have fried noodles with a range of condiments. Whilst an odd choice for breakfast, these were lovely and I looked forward to them every day!

The hotel was clean enough and did include a breakfast buffet for the price. It did the job, but it was near the red light district, so there wasn't a lot of places to eat nearby. It was a train ride from the city centre so it wasn't that convenient either.

This is not a luxury hotel however it is central and easy to find. The rooms are dated - the lift says that it was installed in 1992 and I would guess that no improvements have been made to the rest of the décor since this date. This said the bed linen and towels were clean and replaced daily. Yes the carpets are somewhat stained but I would not be happy to spend an extra £100 a night just for a nice carpet in the same area of town. The breakfast was great both a continental option and a Chinese one with noodles??!!?? Overall a great price for a central hotel - ideal for people that would rather spend their money out and about rather than sit in a posh room.

this hotel is in need of a major refurbishment so would not deem suitable for families or people looking for luxury.However if travelling as a group of men it is ideally situated next to GARE DU NORD STATION and good access to city centre by train or metro and also unlikely to be bothered by being situated next to red light district.
Breakfast is continental buffet including chinese noodles if desired.
Rooms are large with en suite facilities but very poor selection of tv channels-so do not stay here if wanting to spend time watching tv in room.
Price very reasonable for area situated.

It was ideal for our needs as we were two males on a short trip to watch football. The staff were all very pleasant although the overall decor is in need of serious upgrade. Typical european buffet breakfast which was better than some I have encountered before and was constantly refreshed.
Would visit again under same circumstances but unfortunately not with a female partner.

We appreciated their staff discretion, the same about their breakfast (that is a good tasty interesting one, but NOT "american breakfast" as we were informed at booking time. We understand that their hotel location is not the very best in the town, but the hotel choice belonged to us at all...
