“Huge, clean, well priced rooms”
Reviewed February 6, 2009

The rooms were very big, clean and spacious and the bathroom was clean and well equipped.

The breakfast was mediocre (avoid the coffee!) but it was free so I guess you can't really complain - and the overall room price was good so I didn't mind.

The hotel's location is a bit far from the city centre, but is very close to Brussels-Zuid station (although you do have to walk up a steep hill - not fun with bags!) You can get on a tram to the city centre/old town pretty easily - the staff will try to tell you that you can walk but it's too far.

There's also no free or paid WLAN as was advertised, but there is an internet cafe around the corner which opens until midnight.

  • Liked — Big, clean, comfortable rooms
  • Disliked — Absence of advertised WLAN
  • Stayed December 2008, traveled with friends

Reviewed October 2, 2008

The welcome was friendly and the room was spacious with a large bathroom and was clean except for under the bed which was covered in "dust bunnies". It was a cheap choice as Brussels is pretty expensive for hotels. Close to a metro station and a tramway passed just outside the hotel and it was an easy walk into the centre.

The breakfast was passable though the bread was the cheapest you could buy and not very pleasant.

Overall, this hotel could be very good with just a small investment. There were no mattress protectors and the sheets that were not fitted tended to come undone and it is not pleasant to wake up and find yourself lying directly on a mattress that has absorbed countless peoples sweat and other things! The blankets were those nasty things you see at very cheap markets (ours had a zebra pattern!). If the hotel did a bit of decorating and replaced the bed linen with something with a bit more quality it would get far better reviews.

  • Liked — Location and price
  • Disliked — Needs investment

Reviewed August 9, 2007

Had been travelling europe for a month and had a one night stay in Brussels at the very end of my trip. This hotel was pretty expensive for backpacker standards, so we thought it would be ok. WRONG! The hotel is not very well situated (quite far from the centre). The room itself was not very nice. The bathroom 'door' was broken and did not shut properly, the bathroom felt dirty and extremely old and worn down. The breakfast which was included consisted of stale bread and a bit of jam. I had been staying in hostels prior to this hotel which were much cheaper, cleaner, nicer than this very depressing hotel. TV in the room was barely watchable. All sounds quite petty but for about 230 euros a night it was so not worth it!!

  • Liked — nothing !
  • Disliked — the overall depressing feeling to the entire establishment!
