“Perfect stay for lone business travellers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

This hotel is really amazing - very comfortable, nicely refurbished, offers range of additional services and gives an opportunity to be on your own as much you desire it.
During my 4 days stay, I had contact with staff only 3 times. 2 were good, one - not. But in any case, you can use entrance to the hotel and reach your room independently (using key card), and service staff will be there if needed. If it is your desire, you may not interact with anyone there, and keep your peace.
The one time when I had bad experience was related to housekeeping. The checkout time is at noon, but housekeeping staff was intruding since 10h, finally entering the room at 11:30 - and I was half dressed! That fact actually did not stop the housekeeper to discuss at open door that I have to move from the room right now. Like right now - without pants on and not packed. Half an hour before official checkout time. To be honest, the receptionist sincerely apologized for that. But the morning after harsh working week in Brussels was really stressful.
However, the hotel itself is very comfortable, nicely refurbished (very nice bed and bathroom), is clean and has good wireless internet (which gets quite slow in the evenings). It offers free nescaffee in the room (but no options for tea drinkers).
I did not use the breakfast service. But just nearby is huge shopping mall where you can buy anything and use numerous restaurants nearby.
Overall, I would give it a try again.

I was in Brussels for a conference in the Sheraton which is about 5 doors down the road from the Progress Hotel. The Sheraton wanted 270 euros a night and the Progress was a much lower 150 so having looked a the reviews here i took a chance. It's a little bit tucked away as the entrance is small but once inside it's a perfectly good hotel. The room wasn't the biggest in the world but it was clean, well equipped and modern in decor. The bed was comfortable and the space itself felt very good the only downside was a lack of plug sockets and reliable WiFi/Internet cable (I didn't look that hard though). The staff were friendly and always on hand so i had no complaints there.

I didn't eat breakfast so can't comment on that.

All in all it's a good location right next to Sheraton/Hilton etc and is probably a bit cheaper. I'd stay there again.

I stayed one night in May and I must say that the Progress Hotel was really fantastic.

The room had one of the best beds I have ever seen and it was also very big an spacious.

I must also say that the breakfast was really good and the reception staff very friendly.

I would really go again to this hotel!

I really liked this place, the room I had was lovely, spacious, comfartable. The only downside to this hotel was they're little greedy, while I was there there was a conference on to which they inflated the price 300% which I find a little excessive..

I had to leave the 2nd night as they were full...

Breakfast was nice, not worth the €10 I paid, more like €5 as choices were very limited. But ample enough and quality was good.

Taxis were plentiful but had to get from outside the front of the Sheraton, just 100m down the road, our can walk to Gare du Nord, 10 minutes with baggage dragging behind.....

Restaurant around the corner was nice and affordable.

Would give this hotel 6.5/10

The room was nice and the bed comfortable. The location was convenient. The breakfast was just decent, bad coffee. The heating system, although very noisy, did not work at all and only cold air came out. The staff was rather indifferent, they said they could not do anything about. Overall, the hotel is not up to the price.

Very good location. Staff was nice. Room small but clean and in good shape. Internet in a lobby was fast. On the other hand - price was really high. For nearly 200EUR you get very good but standard accomodation wirh reasonable price at least 40% lower. Very expensive minibar items and no breakfast in the price.
