“Home from Home in Brussels...”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

The Condo Gardens was a pleasant surprise - aside from the fact that it was relatively cheap...

For anyone expecting room services and waiting staff, this place is not for you. But that by no means makes it a bad place to stay - it's what you make of it that counts! The fact that you have facilities like your own kitchenette, fully kitted out with cutlery, crockery pots and pans is a definite bonus. You'll also find a toaster, iron and ironing board, hair dryer and other accessories within the spacious rooms.

There is not much that can be said for the area where the apartments are situated - whilst not the best located accommodation, it is exceptionally secure and only a short walk from the centre of town itself.

If you are planning a romantic weekend where your needs are catered for, then you should look elsewhere. if you are looking for a practical, spacious living area with more than the basic needs catered for - and you are happy to go "self catering", then this is a place you should be!

The staff were always very helpful and courteous - I have seen other reviewers saying that they are not. I can only assume that either the reviewer was not happy with the accommodation - or they have another reason to mark down otherwise very efficient and helpful staff.

I can't give this an "Excellent" rating because I am sure that there are much better "Hotels" in Brussels - I have been in quite a few. But, for the price and the amenities and the location, it gets a "thumbs up" from a seasoned traveller like me!

Room Tip: Curiously, the free wifi is split within the accommodation - there are routers in various "rand...

Condo Gardens was a nice place to stay; we booked a studio for one night.

The man at the reception was very friendly and speaks Flemish, French and English. The reception isn't opened 24/7, but you can always reach somebody by phone.
Next to the key, you also receive a code for the gate, so you can come in any time. When you bring your car, you can park it for 10 euros a day, so your car is safe.

The studio was nice; double bed, sofa, tv, table, fridge and a kitchen. The bathroom (with shower) was also nice and everything was very clean.

The location is okay; it's near a tram stop so you can take a tram to get to several destinations in Brussels. If you want to party in the centre; for only 10 euros you can take a taxi back to the Condo Gardens.

It might not be an extemely luxurious accommodation, but it's nice, clean and not expensive. I can absolutely recommend it!

This is no hotel but serviced apartments so there is no roomservice or 24/7 reception but the manager lives on site and is available when you need him.
Centrally located on walking distance of North Railway Station
Wireless internet for free
Parking available at reasonable pricing for Brussels
The flats are quite large and have own kitchen
bedlinnen and cleaning on a weekly basis

this is an old factory that has been converted into apartments, first.... check the details on your booking for reception opening times as it very limited. very secure heavy metal gates and electronic security system in place greet you on arrival.Not a very nice neighbour hood, seems to be full of asylum seekers and non nationals.
The apartment we stopped in for two nights was smelly and very run down, I think the smell was a mixture of sewage and carbon monoxide from the gas meters in the bath room.
I set at the edge of the single bed to take off my shoes and the wooden slats under the mattress gave way and broke!!!
A lot of the residents in the apartments seem to be long term residents. very noisy at night with children crying and playing out side in the street until late, was frightened to keep the window open all night.
Could not relax in the apartment, although well equipped all the appliances looked tired and dated , as did the whole apartment.
Good points is that it did have free wi fi and the guy in the reception area was friendly and
good humoured.
I would not stay there again nor would i recommend anyone stay there untill it was updated and freshened up.
