Stayed at La Hulpe for an overnight. Hotel is typical conference hotel - located in the middle of no where. Ideal for seminars, otherwise to be avoided (unless you like being out in the woods but without solitude due to large groups).
The restaurant is very solid in every respect - congrats.
Major complaint though - I arrived at 9am coming from Asia. I asked them if my room is ready and they confirmed. However they then informed me that I have to pay an extra EUR 50 for early check in. This would be ok with me had I pre booked this, however, I have never encountered this practice when the room was ready anyway... When you pay EUR 220 per night I expect better treatment. I asked them multiple times to have the manager review my logic but upon checkout I was indeed charged the EUR 50 extra. Happily I walked out looking forward to my next night stay at Hotel Amigo in Brussels city - a fine and superb boutique hotel where clients still come first (review to follow).
One final quirk at La Hulpe - they must be afraid of people steeling their irons... (maybe to start a business to recover from the early check in fees?). See attached picture - the iron is attached and secured to the board. Strangest thing I have seen.
