Once you walked through the door, you were in a great hotel. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable; the staff could not have been more attentive; and the restaurant and its food were excellent! The decor was a little over the top, with things like a life-sized picture of twenty-something young lady in her underwear on the door to the room next to us. (Our door had two clothed young people, thankfully.) However, that's just a matter of differing tastes. It was when you left the hotel that things got dicey. This may be conveniently located next to the Midi, but if you're a tourist who likes to wander around and look for shops and restaurants near your hotel, this neighborhood is definitely not for you! When we stepped out of the train station it felt like we were entering an old Eastern Block country: crumbling buildings, shuttered and barred store fronts. The café/small shops culture we had just left in Paris was definitely not in evidence here. We were at the hotel for 4 nights. We either took a cab downtown or ate at the hotel restaurant. We never really felt safe in the neighborhood. If I were to go to Brussels again, I would check out the Marriott - great location in the Grand Place. Too bad. If it weren't for the location, I'd give this hotel at least a 9 out of 10.
