Lovely rooms

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Very nice room, especially for larger families (though could use tea/coffee facilities and shower wasn't draining).
Cons: Unfriendly staff - employ someone who likes their job/the general public. Nowhere to hang out until bar opens at 6, people sat around lobby
Location: Location was fine, not a particularly salubrious area but a short Metro ride to the centre.
Stayed one night in Brussels whilst visiting friends on return from holiday in France. Being a family of 5 we found the rooms to be excellent, the children (10, 8 and 6) loved the bunk beds and the decor was good quality. On the negative side, the staff could have been much more helpful, checking in and out I was made to feel I was bothering them unnecessarily. My main gripe was described by another recent reviewer - you can check in at 3 but there is nowhere for people to go until the bar opens at 6. People were hanging around the few seats in the lobby or on some chairs outside (when it wasn't raining). There were plenty of chairs and a pool table in the bar - surely they could let people in the bar before it opens or find another room for paying guests to relax - very disappointing

Great hotel

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: cleanliness, bar area, wifi
Cons: service on front desk could be a little quicker. normally only one person on duty.
I must say i was not to keen on staying here but we were travelling as part of a large group and this is the place that was chosen. Upon arrival check in was slightly messy in that it took ages as there was only one person on checking in people and there were about 10 people in the queue, that is the only negative thing i have to say about this place. Other than that it was a fabulous hotel...good value for money, rooms were clean and spacious. WiFi connection was excellent throughout the hotel, i stayed on the 4th floor and had no problems. The bar was also great with a pool table and table football which kept the kids entertained and prices of drinks were reasonable which kept the adults entertained. The hotel is fairly close to the centre of Brussels and has a Metro stop about 5 mins away. You can also get a Tram (51) to and from Zuid Train station (Eurostar terminal). There are a few Bars, supermarket and eateries close by, so for us this place worked well and was excellent value for money.

Great Hotel if you use it just to sleep in.

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: Big clean rooms
Cons: view out of the windows in the back of the hotel looks at slums
Location: 30 Minutes to walk to Grand Place. I recommend to by a ticket at the reception for the hop on bus, the stop is about 5 to 10 minutes from the hotel an
Although this hotel has the character of a youth hostel, it is very suitable for tourists who spend the days sightseeing and need a very spacious, comfortable/functional, clean room, to stay in. We were 3 adult and almost all Hotels available in Expedia offered 1 king or 2 single for 3 people. This hotel actually has rooms with 3 beds. And the rooms are large enough to support occupancy for 3. Shower, sink, and WC are separate, so 3 people do not have to line up and wait. Good and affordable breakfast menu. Parking is rather expensive, but space is limited. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. We loved the hotel. I was actually surprised to see that the actual/official day-rate on a Saturday in the middle of the summer was lower than my Expedia rate.

Nice, roomy hotel

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: We enjoyed having a large, spacious room. We also like the bar.
Cons: The hotel caters to a young, college-aged clientel. We were a family of five and felt somewhat out of place.
Location: We enjoyed the French restaurant nearby. It is a little far to the downtown area, but we walked to and from it.
We really enjoyed our time in the hotel. It has spacious rooms, in a dormitory-style atmosphere. The staff was very helpful, and the bar was nice.

CLEAN & ECONOMIC CITY HOTEL

Posted Jul 4, 2014
Pros: EASY TO GET TO. VERY CLEAN. GOOD ROOMS. GOOD FOOD. CLOSE TO CITY CENTRE. FRIENDLY STAFF.
Cons: BOOKING IN. FORMS HAD TO BE FILLED IN. SURELY NOT ONE AT A TIME FOR 9 ROOMS!
Location: GOOD. GOOD RESTAURANTS. GOOD TO GO ON A NIGHT THAT BELGIUM THAT BELGIUM WINS A GAME IN THE WORLD CUP!
I WAS LEADING A GROUP OF 19 PEOPLE, SOME OF WHOM WERE WARY OF THE HOTEL. THEY EXPECTED A HOSTEL AND A CHEAP BREAKFAST. THE ROOMS WERE EXCELLENT EACH WITH A LARGE BATHROOM. THE BREAKFAST WAS A GOOD BUFFET CONTINENTAL STYLE. PLENTY OF FOOD AND PLENTY OF ROOM. THE ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THE BOOKING IN. IT TOOK AT LEAST HALF AN HOUR. THE DELAY WAS NOT NECESSARY. THE RECEPTIONIST WOULD ONLY DEAL WITH PEOPLE IN A LINEAR FASHION.
