Hot hot hot and aircon not workingPosted Oct 8, 2014
It was warm when I came to the hotel in early October. I thought I could rely on the airconditioning to bring the heat in the room below 27 degrees C. But when I switched it on, it was only a fan. I asked the front desk and they told me the aircon was switched off for the whole hotel. It's worth bearing in mind that the information given about the hotel is inaccurate.

Martin's HotelPosted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Clean and comfortable.
Cons: Decoration could be brighter and lighting in the bathroom could be improved.
Location: Have a stroll around! Enjoy the chocolatey smell, taste a sample of their beers and enjoy the comics on the walls :-)
Clean hotel decorated with simplicity. a little bit to brown for my taste. Located near to the underground station with easy reach to turistic attractions. The walk to the town centre takes less than 30 mins.

Nice hotel- close to many EU sitesPosted Aug 25, 2014
Lovely trip. Breakfast at €23 pp is expensive though. Also, closing the restaurant during 'summer' for dinner and drinks is somewhat.... well... otherwise, a great experience all round.

What Happened Here?Posted Apr 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
It's a nice hotel BUT having booked with a friend at the same time for separate rooms on a conference call to Hotels.com for the same hotel at the same rate, I got lesser amenities, amenities that were standard at larger, less glam hotels in Amsterdam and Antwerp. For example, no black-out curtains, no coffee/tea maker, no safe, no iron in the room. I got a useless Jacuzzi. Also, no way to order a la carte in the lounge. It looked like the hotel was trying to force guests to order expensive room service or 23 Euro breakfast or dinner. Real problems with card key that didn't work. And one of the windows, when you opened it, was off its hinge.

Not 4-starPosted Jan 31, 2014
Pros: Cheerful and helpful staff.
Cons: Room facilities.
I tried Martins because there was an offer on the room (I normally stay at the Silken Berlaymont just up the road). The staff are very helpful and pleasant, and the location is excellent for those working in or visiting the European institutions, We had a good meal in the restaurant on one evening. The rooms are clean and quite comfortable -- except that there is no means to make a hot drink. There is a machine on one floor that dispenses drinks and the tea it makes is the foulest, foulest version of 'tea' ever. I rang room service at 6 am to try to order a pot of tea but there was no answer, so I had to wait until the breakfast room opened at 7 am to get something to drink. Definitely not 4-star standard of service provision, yet the hotel is the usual expensive Brussels price. i am writing this from a hotel in Dublin that costs just over a quarter of the price of Martin's, has all the same facilities plus manages to provide a kettle and selection of teas and coffees. This makes a stay, especially if one needs to work for any length of time in the room, so much more pleasant. Won't be going back to Martins. The Berlaymont makes more effort.

Don't understand why you need pay 7 euro 50 cents in tourist tax per day, when you go for holiday in Belgium, ridicules, also cheating taxi drivers Will not make you feel better, hotel lobby look fantastic, but room not same standard
